  • Ok... so here goes. Been away from MSE for a long time and wasn't sure if this thread still happened, but apparently it does.


    he Quote itself: £1.5K
    Who the quote is from: Online separates, flights, hotel etc
    Is there a booking fee: No idea
    The Tour Operator/Airline/Hotel: Virgin and any downtown NYC hotel
    The departure Airport/Post: Manchester
    The Holiday Dates: Feb or March 2020
    The number of people travelling (inc kids ages): 2 adults
    Is an in-flight meal included: I think so.


    So, I know that's all vague and that I need a quote, but I'm only looking... and to be honest I don't know what I'm looking for. I scared to book it all separately, so that's why I prefer a TA to help me.


    I'm looking to lay some ghosts to rest, I want to go back to NYC, last time I was there (about 5 years ago) I was in the middle of a nervous breakdown and was contemplating ending my life. Im 100% better and need to go back. Its just me and my husband. We only want 3 or 4 nights, don't need a fancy hotel. But I'd prefer downtown NYC or/in and around tribeca, that general area more than times square, but if theyre cheaper, that's cool. I cant do January at all as I work in accountancy and its a busy time for us, Feb is my 50th so that would be great, or March. Can anyone help?
    I also remember the words of my friends, but I would rather have enemies than friends like you :p

    :p would like to make it known that ZubeZubes avvy is a DHN, she's not dancing :o

    Hi Outrageous Monkey

    You should really give a precise holiday to beat undr the rules for this thread but I can help wuith what you have supplied anyway

    As an example we can do an ABTA/ATOL bonded complete package to eg Wyndham Garden Chinatown / SoHo which is in the area you want, 4*, gets great reviews etc - 3 nts flying directly from Manchester in Feb inc Suitcases is £1560 total - or the Sheraton Tribeca is also 4*, good reviews, right area etc and just £1580
    nb These prices dont include Transfers as there are many options (flight is into Newark so closer than JFK)
