    Hi Everyone!

    2x adults - 13-19 May 2020 – LHR to Portland Oregon

    Was flying direct with Delta and staying at the Hoxton - snug room- I had this all lined up to book with Opodo at £1150 (with £10 for standard care and the ‘cancel for any reason’ gtee) and then we had an internet outage.

    In the time it took me to get to work the price has significantly increased to £1600

    I have a very very tight budget in this one so checked in a few times before hand but suddenly all the direct flights are gone and the hotels have increased overnight.

    Can anyone match the above quote? please - willing to book asap

    (I should mention I am flexible ion the dates as long as I'm there for the weekend of the 16/17)

    Hi MATTR5


    Thanks for the reply, I would looking to see if you could match or replicate the package? rather than beat it


    Or did you mean you couldn't beat the sudden price increase to £1600?


    Sorry for the further question

    Hi Matthew

    JET2HOLIDAYS - so I'm hoping your "guarantee" is going to work for me :D

    7 nights for 2 adults - SELF CATERING

    EAST MIDLANDS (EMA) on Wednesday 18th September 2019
    to Thessaloniki (SKG)

    Staying at LOLI Village in Halkidiki

    1 Bedroom Apartment (WITHOUT AIRCON)

    Includes standard Coach transfers
    and the usual 22kg hold and 10kg hand baggage each

    Total is £702

    BUT I have a valid and working code for £50 making it £652
    (I can PM if required - can't post on this thread/forum due to MSE rules)

    Do your best - like you have for me in the past. :T
    Thanks

    Cheers

    Hi quoia

    The £50 off code makes it harder for me to beat them but I will knock a further £15 off the total so I'll be £637 :)

    Hi AI Queen

    I cant see this deal with either TUI or Thomas Cook - if you want to send me a link I guarantee to beat either of them like for like for Summer 20
