    Hi jerzees

    No I cant beat this - my best on those flights but with 15kg bags (Transfers included) is £2398
    I can do it on different flights that day with 22kg bags and transfers for £2358 but the times are 1620-2240 out and 2335-0205 back so i will understand if you stick with your flights

    Hi purcel

    I can beat this with TUI and do it for £3498

    But - I can do 11 nights so an extra night included from Stansted on 20/9 with luggage and transfers etc included for £3678 and with better flight times so that may be the better offer

    Hello,
    We have already booked a holiday with First Choice before we found this forum but if you can save us alot to make the cancellation charge worth it then we will definitely swap. We have paid £1400.08 including all inclusive hotel, flights and select a seat.

    The number of people travelling (inc kids ages): 2 Adults
    The Hotel (or * if it’s allocate on arrival): Arena Beach
    The Board (self catering/half board etc): All Inclusive
    Any specific requirements: Can be any hotel thats max 30 minutes transfer time. Atleast 3 star with decent reviews on Trip Advisor. Must be all inclusive. We have paid for private transfer separately. Must have select a seat. My Cancellation Fee is £400.00 total.

    Hi HarryDavies01

    Obviously it will depend on your cancellation costs but I can do this very hotel for less so I CAN beat you price

    So with Birmingham flights on 2/9 - see times below, 22kg suitcases, 10kg cabin bags, without transfers (just use the ones you have booked) but with prebooked standard seats its £1200
    With Private Transfers and Prebooked seats its £1300
    Flight times
    Birmingham Fuerteventura FUE
    Depart: Wed 02 Sep 2020 at 15:35
    Arrive: Wed 02 Sep 2020 at 19:55
    Fuerteventura FUE Birmingham
    Depart: Wed 09 Sep 2020 at 20:55
    Arrive: Thu 10 Sep 2020 at 01:05

    Hi

    Thought i would post this to see if anyone can better it.

    It seems this year prices are crazy with Thomas Cook gone so Jet 2 and TUI have less competition.

    A similar holiday the last 2 years both with TC cost us 3.5K!
    It also appears we have to pay a premium for flying from Belfast but what can we do!

    Jupiter Albufeira Hotel
    2 Adults, 3 Children (Ages 12, 9 & 7) for 7 nights from Sun 12 Jul 2020

    Return flights Belfast
    (5) 10kg hand luggage
    (5) 22kg baggage

    All Inclusive
    (1) One Bedroom suite
    Coach transfers
    ATOL Protected
    £5225
