I managed to book one last week 15, now i have the money to book my second and its told me I have already booked and cant book more. So i have emailed them asking why I cant book a second when I know of others who have booked more than 2 or 3! Hopefully they will sort it!

When did you book the first one? I wonder if there is a time limit on booking the second, both sil and I had a week gap between trying to book the second holiday??
hope the sun come good and honour us honest ones who only want to book what we were allowed

Default I have a full set of sun holiday tokens up for grabs...

Anyone want a full set of sun holiday tokens ... I have a whole set of tokens and form if anyone needs them... I have booked one holiday already online and now have a second set of tokens that we are not using if anyone needs any as we have decided to be sensible,we only really need and can afford one holiday this year so if anyone needs them please pm me... first come, first served...

It's def worth a try hopefully leaving more of the 'giveaway' codes for folks who're newbies

thanks for the info. i emailed them yesterday as ive had a code the last 2 times and we moved in Dec. They emailed me a new code this morning and we got the park and date we want

Just got a reply from the sun regarding them not allowing you to book 2 holidays as you were allowed to book 1 9.50 & 1 15.00 holiday. & when we tried we got error messages saying we were not allowed to book another holiday as we had already booked one

there reply was

UK Holidays in The Sun
Ticket Number: 12515
Category: Online Booking Enquiry

Dear Mr """""

Thank you for your recent correspondence.

When booking online you can use your Priority Reference number to book either one 9.50 holiday date or one 15 pound holiday date. You can not book two holidays online.

Kind regards

Sun Holiday Team

Please go to www.ukholidaysinthesun.co.uk and click on 'Contact us' if you have any more queries.

funny that the previous week i had this message from them

Dear Mr Hibbs,

Thank you for your recent correspondence.

When booking online you can use your Priority Reference number to book one 9.50 holiday date and one 15 pound holiday date. When booking by the postal route there is no limit to the amount of application forms you can send to us.

Kind regards

Sun Holiday Team



Anyone else had the same message?

I just got that message too - so I am replying to ask why some have been able to book 3

It does now say on their times that you can only book online so the greedy f**kers who booked 3 have ruined it for the rest of us! thanks guys!!!

Ive never booked one of these holidays before. Ive got my form and the tokens but it says you have to put down 5 different available dates you can go, I only have 2 dates that we could go on as my husband works away a lot, is it still worth me sending off the form ? The dates are not for half term weeks which I know will be already booked up.

No harm in trying- we did that before and still got a holiday. Another time we didn't get a holiday but they gave me a priority code for the next year.

Be open minded with where you choose to go as the more options they have, the better your chances are e.g if you can go anywhere in a certain area- indicate that on the form.

Hi People, just a quick question. I was lucky enough to receive a priority code this year, but know my luck might not be in next year. So was wondering if I was able to get a code off someone else the next time the holidays are on offer, will it not have their name and address already put in?

Cheers

You just input all your details,no problems

many people successfully use someone else's priority code
