    I've just been doing some dummy bookings and we (2 adults and 2 children) could be going for two weeks over xmas and new year for just over 2k! Even cheaper in October.

    Hmmm... ;)

    I found it now, can't book online can you?
    Request a quote I got.
    Worth a try but I suspect they will say a lot higher price when they get back to you.

    That's exactly what happened to us. Saw a fantastic price a couple of weeks ago - requested a quote and the price was much higher!

    Unfortunately I think you'll find it turns out too good to be true.
    I just priced up on there the dates I'm going to Florida - 24 Oct - 6 Nov, and it comes up with VA, Fly-drive, flight + car for 2 adults + 2 children LGW-MCO, £1830 total.
    Well, on the VA website, those flights VS027/028 on those dates come to £2074 each :sad2:

    There's quite a lively discussion on Holiday Watchdog

    Just had a look at that, seems there are far more bad reviews than good ones, shame it was a good price. I hope that you can find something at a good price for you and yours. :goodvibes
