    Sun Newspaper 9.50 holidays loophole. 25th Jul 06 at 9:42 PM
    Not sure where the right place for this is, but I know lots of DFWs are collecting the Sun 9.50 holiday vouchers, so I've posted it there as well. If you have one of the priority booking forms that the Sun newspaper send out to ppl who have booked before, the code at the top allows you to book online by submitting the code words on the vouchers. HERE'S THE GOOD BIT. As you don't have to submit the actual vouchers, you can book multiple holidays with just one set of six vouchers - I've just done it and booked two hols with the same codes. It also means that you can share the codes with friends and family, and book on their behalf, then change the name on the contact sheet. Woo hoo! just spotted my first loophole. My mum would be so proud.

    Wouldn't the best way to stay Debt Free be to not go on holiday in the first place? Just like when we were kids.

    they were printed in the sun but I think they're over now. You have a big choice all over uk but need to pick 5 and they give you one.

    They usually still run the tokens for about another week but the problem will be getting a booking form unless you can print one out on The Sun Website.
  • Mirtos
    For anyone who has a booking form, but no vouchers (or not enough), the codes are all holiday related words. I used the following : SAIL, ROCK, ICES, LAKE, PINK, BLUE I know this might have limited use to people, but worth a go no? website is www.ukholidaysinthesun.co.uk

    But there is only one week in October half term and they say you have to put down 4 or 5 dates to be accepted don't they?
    And they never give you the date you want which would be the sschool holiday's anyway.
