Christmas 2006

When is the best time to start looking for the deals ? And where ?
Fancy somewhere exotic/hot with the family - and several thousand miles away from the mother-in-law from Hell !

    I would say 18 months in advance if you want some of the best prices. I am waiting for the new brochures to come out next month for 2008.

    Next Sunday or over Easter sometime Virgin will have a 15% off.
    Last Christmas you could get Dom Rep for about 1000 per adult from
    Or if you can go on 25th instead of just before you will get excellent deals
    1 I spotted the other day was £2400.80 to the Royal Decameron Club Caribbean 3*AI in Runaway Bay, Jamaica 14 nights from Gatwick

    Or £2168.80 to the Occidental Grand Playa Turquesa in Guardalavaca, Cuba 4*AI on the 14th

    Best deals are always leaving Christmas day if you have no kids tehy are the best way to pick ip a really good deal
    If you look anything like your passport photo....Your too ill to travel

    Always book sooner rather than later, as the spaces on flights are taken up. I have just booked for this year and there was already limited availibility (this is for adventure trips to South America)

    I tried last October to get away for Christmas and didn't manage it, so this year was determined to get in early.
