Booking Holidays on the internet.

Messages  1 - 6 of 6

I went to Tenerife last year payed over 1000. When i came home i looked on the Internet and found if i booked the same hotel and flight i would have saved 250. The trouble is i want to go back to the same place, but i begrudge paying the same price as before our it might be even more. What internet site could i trust, and anyone who has booked on line have they been happy with paying by card over the internet.

I wouldnt have any hesitation in using the net to book holidays. It is always cheaper.

The trick is to go into a travel agents and let them find you a nice holiday. Then when they give you the print out, find the same holiday on the net and book direct.

I went into a local travel agents branch and our holiday to Goa was 1,400 - the one that I liked. The print out said it was with Manos tour operatour. I came home, and found the identical holiday on the manos website direct for 400 quid less. The travel agent obviously needs to make a commision.

I used manos/airtours/mytravel a few months ago again and booked a holiday to mexico. I'd certainly reccomend them. They do direct flight holiday packages from manchester to thailand, goa, cancun etc but at prices not much more than spain.

Thanks i will do that go down the high street next week and get a print out from a travel agent. The sooner a book it the better i will feel.

I can't afford a holiday. Can't afford a fine either so the courts are going to disqualify me from driving instead.

The following are fairly reputable:

Just google "cheap holidays" and search through the sites it brings up.

Even the ajor operators have their on-line booking agents, often quite a bit cheaper than the highstreet.

Don't take the first one you find though, it may be even cheaper on the next site
