    Can anyone beat my quote please:

    Monday 29th June 2022 for 14 nights

    Flight - Edinburgh to Heraklion

    Hotel - Gouves Water Park Hotel

    2 Adults, 1 Child (15)

    Board - all inclusive

    Room -  Swim up family suite (not maisonette)

    Operator - Jet 2 Holidays

    Price Quoted - £4074

    We've had to cancel an equivalent holiday for the last 2 years and now the prices have rocketed, so would love a great deal for next year.

    Would consider later dates, but not earlier.  Could also consider Glasgow flight.

    Thanks

    Hi Mhairi

    I can beat any Jet2holidays price around £4k by £75-100 at the moment but your holiday is not showing - I've checked their website and they are asking £4074 just for a standard room and don't have a Swim-up Family Suite - they have a Family Suite at +£621 or a Swim up Maisonette  at +£1155

    Maybe give me a call - I'll PM you my number

    Hi, got individual quotes for flights and hotel but want to book both as a package to be ABTA covered. 
    2 adults 2 kids (6, 11)
    20 October 2022 depart BHX to DLM
    29 October 2022 return 
    need min 2 checked bags (20kg each) and reserved seats
    Flight cost €1232 if booked direct with Corendon airlines
    Hotel: Tui Blue Tropical in Sarigerme booked direct £1960 all inclusive for a suite with sliding doors
    Got a quote from Tui for their flights + hotel at £3570 so booking separately would save around £600 but wouldn’t  get ABTA cover
    thanks in advance 👍🏻

    Hi Guys - for some reason it wont let me reply individually 

    magee737 - I cant save you any money booking through me but Ive sent you a way of saving on the flights by PM 

    richandria - II can save you £100 off the package price but cant do anything if you book the separate elements
