    This board is not for posts like;

    "Best places to go on a Hen weekend?"

    "Holidays with good pools?"

    "Help me get a cheap holiday!"

    "Where can I take the kids on holiday?"

    "Best place to buy currency?"

    "Can you beat this price?"

    Nor things like offers on Grazeboxes, dishwasher tablets and craft products!!!!

    This board is literally just for reporting (as the title says) Holiday Deals, Holiday Bargains and any Special Offers on holidays, only!

    Sorry if you think this sounds stern but the board should be a list of deals, offers and bargains that is easy to scan down for anything of interest, getting cluttered up with questions that should be asked on the relevant planning your holiday boards (either Overseas or UK) is very frustrating for people to try and wade through (see previous threads here and here) and a complete and utter pain in the !!! to sift through the threads and move all the irrelevant ones and explain to people why it's moved when they complain their thread has suddenly gone!

    SO please adhere to the format of this board so that we don't lose this facility, and make it easier to find the bargains we all crave for so we can get on and have a fab holiday

    TIA

    WTG Savvy!

    I was feeling a little grumpy when I got up this morning and was soooo tempted to start a new thread along the lines of:

    Which part of 'this board is only for reporting deals and offers' is so difficult to understand?

    Luckily you've jumped in and saved me from posting so it's only you and I that will know what a miserable grump I am!

    Yes, thats right, just me and you - you didn't think anyone else was actually going to read this did you??

    I think you would be better posting a sticky that has in capitals 'ONLY POST CHEAP HOLIDAY DEALS ON THIS BOARD' or better still with the heading 'free holidays to the destination of your choice' it might get read by a few more people then lol!

    I was wondering if it was possible to have only the "sticky" appear when people enter the sub-forum and then have a further clickable link (to the actual sub-forum posts) at the end of savvy's OP in the sticky - a sort of sub sub-forum, IYSWIM.
    I suppose it's too complicated.

    Ah I like that idea, and that would be totally awesome, not sure if VBull supports that but you could try and suggest it in the 'Site Feedback' section??

    i posted flights to Orlando going cheap here yesterday and now it's gone. Why? Was it because I asked people to email my personal email if they were interested?

    Is there a board to post potential holiday scams?

    Might have just been done by an outfit calling itself Superior Resorts; website gone down, phone unanswered...

    Saver Fare Beware
    Take care, I booked a Caribbean cruise on 19th November for New Year and on 25th I was told I had cancer and needed a radical hysterectomy. P&O refused to postpone my holiday or transfer it to anyone else. I HAD travel insurance through my bank BUT despite the policy stating it was UK and Europe only it seems I was not covered even though I had not even left the UK
    Buyer beware, Saver fares are not a bargain and through "free" holiday insurance we are being told we are not covered.Check the fare and check your cover
    Help.

    sensible advice even though it is in the wrong place
    I am confused how you thought UK and Europe insurance would cover a Caribbean cruise. As you were going outside UK and Europe this policy would not cover your vacation
    I hope you recover well but in this case you error appears to have been not being insured for your trip

    Voucher Codes and Deals
    I found a site saveholidays.com showing discount codes for discounted deals. Just booked a hotel with a 15% off code GETAWAY15 I think it ends soon but worth trying or using one of the other codes.

    I think any bargain that MUST be posted in this particular thread is SPAM and best to be avoided completely!
    1+1+1=1
    "Marleyboy you are a legend!"
    MarleyBoy "You are the Greatest"
    Marleyboy You Are A Legend!
    Marleyboy speaks sense
    marleyboy (total legend)
    Marleyboy - You are, indeed, a legend.
