    Part of the Furniture
    AA have quoted £418 for a return flight from Newcastle to Fort Myers (via Heathrow and Miami) departing on Tuesday 28 August at 0655 hours and arriving in Fort Myers at 6pm. Returning on the 26 September, leaving Fort Myers at 1555 hours via Chicago, then back to Heathrow and up to Newcastle.

    Just the one ticket required. As you can see direct flights are not an option but I don't want to have an overnight on my way to Fort Myers or have to sit around for hours and hours between flights.

    Thanks,

    Christine

  • I have been quoted £265.72 total for a 2 night trip to Paris via Eurostar from Ashford staying at the Comfort Inn Sacre Coeur. Dates are 20th August - 22nd August (I am flexible by a day either way) I am willing to pay a little higher for leisure select on the Eurostar. We want to stay in the Sacre Coeur area but are flexible on the hotel. Please help me beat this price.:j

    I need to go for 8 separate one week trips in the next 2 years, I'm fairly flexible about dates, but I'd like the trips evenly spaced.

    For 16/11/07 - 24/11/07 I have been quoted £522.10 with one stopover flying with Emirates.

  • In the end we decided to go it alone and booked the flights and the hotel separately. We spent a bit more than our budget, and even the Thomas Cook quote but we got a very nice hotel right on the beach.

    • The Hotel (or * if it’s allocate on arrival): 2*

    The package would either be in Perissia or Kamari.

    Doing it myself on the web I can get

    Flights: First Choice Gatwick to Santorini (25/09/07-02/10/07) £184pp
    Hotel: The Birds Villa, Perissa. Apt 525euro (~ £352) Room 301euro (~ £202)
    Total: Apt £720
    Room £570

    The Birds Villa http://www.santorini.gr-santorini.com/hotels/birds-villa/ Looks very nice, much nicer than most of the hotels you see in the brochures but its the flights that are killing me.

    We were hoping to do this for sub £250 a person which would mean if we went for the Apt at Birds we need flights for less than £80 a person or if we went for the room we've got £150 (per person) for flights.


    So can you beat either of these quotes? Can you find us a nice hotel in a good package deal? or a cheap flight that would go with the Birds Villa?

    Thanks in advance

    David.

    Please please please can someone offer us a better quote than this? I am looking to book our honeymoon next year - we get married on 19th April and would like to fly between 20th and 22nd (preferably 21st or 22nd). Our first choice airport would be Manchester but we could also fly from London if this led to a better quote.
