    Hiya guys...havent been on for a wee while (just getting over the post Disney blues from May)

    Looks like we'll be going back for Christmas and wanted to know if you think this is a good deal (there will be 3 adults travelling) ......
    Glasgow to Orlando - Mon 21st Dec (via Newark)- dep 09.00 arr 18.03
    11 days in Orlando Metropolitan Express (our fav hotel on I drive)
    Then a friend is taking us around the "bottom" end of Florida (The Keys/Miami)
    then return
    Tampa to Glasgow (via Newark) - arrive back 8th Jan at 07.30am

    Prices :

    Looks good for Xmas. We got a bargain last Xmas Virgin Holidays direct flights £580pp for flight & hotel(Fairfield Inn) but they were a lot more expensive this Xmas.
    Just checked car, can't get £243 for your dates:confused3
    looked at 21st Dec~7th Jan smallest car, is that not what your quote is for? coming up at £293 Alamo or £294 Dollar for me.

    Looks like it will be booked either today or tomorrow...........will keep you posted......
    Am a bit undecided whether to book the hotel through alpharooms or roomsnet - both prices are very similar but havent used either of them before.....what do you suggest?:confused3

    i have used alpha rooms many times with no problem, i expect the same with other company as well, whatever is cheapest is the best idea.

    Never used Roomsnet but wouldn't hesitate using Alpharooms, great service from them. These 5 reservations were all thru them.:thumbsup2
    Plus 5% cashback. http://www.quidco.com/alpha-rooms/
