    Hi,

    Can anyone beat this ?

    Total Price £1300.

    Destination: International Drive, Orlando, Florida
    Date: 18/4/2008
    Duration: 14 nights
    Accomodation: Hampton Inn South Of Universal
    Number of People: 2 adults, 1 child (aged 15)

    I will be interested in different Hotels/Airlines if price is comparable, but direct scheduled flights to Orlando International is a MUST and hotel must close to International Drive.
    Breakfast included is preferable, but not essential.

    • My mother in law wants the family to travel with her to the hotel san felipe in puerto de la cruz in tenerife in sept/oct.
    • The deal is this two people travel out with her and stay a week.
    • she stays for 3 weeks in total
    • the last week, 2 people join her and then travel back with her
    • half board
    • sea view (optional)
    • First choice quote £979 hb, or £1069 ai for 1 week flying from ema.
    Problem...we want to fly from Doncaster. the first couple want to stay another week somewhere (probably booked independently) but flight prebooked as part of package.
    The start date is variable between 21/9 & 25/9
    We are also worried that the san felipe is undergoing refurbishment and therefore may be noisy, etc. Thus an alternative may be considered. Currently looking at H10 tenerife playa.


    Frightening...eh:eek:
