    Hi AIQUEEEN

    Yes it can but you should as usual put the best price you have found on here - i would suggest adding if it includes luggage and if so how manty and weight of suitcases . I cant beat many flight only's but ive had a look at the flights on your dates and I think on this one I can beat the cheapest by using a trick :)

    Hi beccy53
    Sorry for the delay ibn replying - its been quiet on here for a while and I had a day off
    I can beat this for you - inc the rebooked seats and family room with sea view and balcony (it doesn't say Suite) - Transfers by Coach and 20kg luggage per person I will be just over £250 cheaper at £5127
    We will be more on the Deposit though as F Choice take £75 now and £125 10 weeks later - we take £200 at time of booking and nothing 10 weeks later - so you pay the same Deposit but all in one go

  • Any ideas for a cheap holiday for one to a not crazy resort, but not too quiet either. Doesn't have to be this place but as a guide Paphos sort of level of busyness but not an Ayia Napa / Malia type place. Half board ideally but not essential.
