    Help please - Easyjet
    Last night we were looking at Easyjet flights from Bristol to Venice Marco Polo 11th July outbound and 18th July inbound and the cost for 2 adults with 1 bag (32kg) was 166.54.

    I have gone to book the flight this afternoon and exactly the same flight is 276.52.

    Has anyone got any ideas of how we could reduce the cost of the flight? I am totally shocked and fuming that the price has gone up by over 100 in under 24 hours!!!!

    Can anyone give me any ideas of ways to make this flight cheaper or is it a case of TOUGH and DEAL WITH IT?

    Cheap flights to various European destinations via Ryanair
    Check this out! European flights as cheap as 6 ONE-WAY from various UK airports. To keep cost down, be sure to bring merely a piece of hand luggage, check-in online and pay by VISA ELECTION if possible.

    Bookings must be made today (i.e. 6th of March 2009). Take note of the travel and blackout period under the conditions. Start booking via the link below.

    Happy holidays!!!

    Has anyone tried the Free Flight with the Flybe's Mastercard deal?

    It mentions flight is free but taxes and charges are payable. If anyone has used this, how much did they pay in taxes and charges - just to get an idea? Are the taxes and charges the same as when buying a normal ticket?

    My cousin has just agreed to join us in florida for 1 week. We are travelling from glasgow direct into sanford on the 27th August and she is looking for something around the same time.

    Does anyone know if it's cheaper to book separate tickets or return? Ideally would prefer a direct flight only.

    Easyjet to Dubrovnik
    Easyjet have recently started flying to Dubrovnik in Croatia - would be worth adding to the flightchecker I reckon.

    Flightchecker useless for UK flights
    The flightchecker really needs to have more airlines added, particularly for UK flights.

    Air Southwest for example have lots of cheap flights to and from the South West but none of their flights are listed.

    Rather than just listing only the big boy airlines, I think you should include the little ones as well........they often offer much better customer service, and prices, without all the extras like Ryanair etc

    Come on Martin, get one of your team on to it!

    Didn't some cheap airlines insist on being removed from scraper sites, threatening legal action?

    I have seen this question asked many times lately.
    I'm sure the option is still around but bot as available as it once was.

    Have a google about. I'm sure you'll find advice somewhere

    So much for BMI/MBNA 'free return flights to europe deal
    MBNA/BMI card - I'm new to the forum, so i hope that I'm posting in the right way. This is a quick gripe not about the site which I think is excellent but about the MBNA/BMI credit card which i recently signed up for. I applied for my two free flights to europe today and was informed that i would have to pay taxes. I thought this was fare enough until i was told that the tax for the two flights would be 200 pounds for a return flight to Dusseldorf. I did a qucik internet seach to discover that the cheapest return fare to dusseldorf on the dates i had requested with Air berlin at a similar time was going to be cheaper by about 10 pounds than BMI's 'free return flights' and that BMI's main competitor BA would be about 30 pounds more - some bargain BMI be warned. :-))

    I booked a flight to Zante months ago, now the flights have been reduced to less than half what i paid, I have been to my documents and it says the tickets are 100% non refundable, is there anyway I can get some of the money back? As I was thinking about buying the cheap tickets and trying to get money back for the expensive ones?!?! Dan

    Not a chance with a non-refundable fare.

    If the fare had gone up, would you have volunteered to pay the difference? It's no different to buying something in a shop and finding it at a sale price a few weeks later.

    But at Christmas shops do give gift receipts, so if the gifts do get reduced in the sale, you get money back! But I thought that would be the case, thanks anyway!

    Flights to Vietnam
    Am hoping to go to Vietnam for around five weeks over July & August.
    Can anybody recommend any cheap travel agents where I can book a lo cost flight from the UK. Also are there any co's that do good deals on flights into Ho Chi Minh and out of Hanoi or similar? Or is a return the best bet. Are there any good deals which will allow a stop over? Thanks Venus.
