Got a 9 hour lay over so thinking of getting a hotel in Newark for the night as that seems to work out. Weren't that bothered about how long it takes as it was so cheap so thanks again, just the car hire to sort out.

Hope Matt got off okay and you get your dates confirmed for the 25th.
It is a long layover but if you are happy staying in hotel for a few hours I am sure it will work out OK.

We took Matt last Sunday. Age 18 he has spent 4 nights away from home so wasn't sure how he would handle it. Going by his Blog posts at 5am (after a night out) plus emails & texts we have had I think he is having a great time. http://mathewgillings.wordpress.com/
Something could be in the pipeline regarding his Blog, he recieved an email yesterday from the University, he has to see someone next week.

Thanks for that Wayne - have been and booked. Had to do 2 seperate bookings as there are 5 of us to get the £466.58 prices, but all done. Funny that putting in 5 adults came up with completely different flights and higher prices!!

Glad Matt is ok, he will soon settle in and looks like he is well on the way. Wonder what the university have in store for his blog as he has come to their attention already.

Plenty of hotels around Neward and we arrive at 9:20pm and leave 6:30am next morning so hopefully won't be too bad and the fllight back is just a 1 hour stopover. Can't wait! Not too long for you and Karen to wait now though.

just a tad!!!

We were looking at the sums last night. Came perilously close to booking last night. Can't begin to tell you how chuffed we are that we waited!

First DIY for us. Happy planning times indeed!

Thanks for posting this wayneg just got an excellent price for next August - flying via Newark, really could not justify £1881 with BA or £2002 with virgin just for 2 adults.
So now have flights, accomodation and car and SUV for 18days.

United flights booked for me today for 30th July to the 13th August on the heathrow -Newark -Orlando route for £442 per person so pleased I can't tell you I thought Florida 2013 was never going to happen at virgin prices

Thanks

Going from London. We live in the North East but are on the East Coas mainline so will get the train the night before (cheap as travelling with kids) and then we fly from Heathrow on the 14th

That's good, I'd much prefer Manchester. On the way there wouldn't be too bad but driving home to Liverpool would be hard after missing a nights sleep!

Manchester was nearly double the price. For us we'd have to travel quite a way anyway so it really doesn't make much difference.

I can't book today but if they're still available tomorrow I think I will book to fly from London, it will be worth the saving!

Wayne, don't know if you'll know this but as we are going via Newark and have 9 hours to kill and will probably get a hotel do we have to keep our luggage or can we give it back to the United Agents once we have collected it on arrival in Newark. Flight arrives at 9pm and the next one to Orlando departs 6:30am the next day.

Also we are flying Lufthansa operated by United Heathrow to Newark so do we check in with Lufthansa or United? Thanks
