    Las Vegas - 4 Nights only - Are we mad? 5th Aug 18 at 12:34 AM
    seen a deal for 558 for 4 night stay in Las Vegas - Cosmopolitan Hotel, but indirect flights. Is this a good deal? & what do you think about the duration. Im thinking its a fair bit of money to spend, for such a short space of time, but my friends really want to do it

    What do you guys think about this?

    Thanks for your replies guys. this would be in May next year. unfortunately we really can't afford direct flights so it's indirect or nothing...!!!9785; it does include Baggage....you are all right...I have already written off the 1st day as we would be arriving around 6.30pm.

    thier are 7 of us going so room would be 2 2 and 3. I am quickly learning about these resort fees ...wow!!

    I will check out the other forum you mentioned for tips etc

    Thanks again

    who is the package with, that does seem very cheap for 4 nights at the Cosmo inc flights, are you sure they are live prices

    IMO Vegas is too far to travel just for 4 nights but if OP thinks they can do it then go for it.

    give lots and you will always receive lots

    Yes they are/were live prices. we have booked. so just gonna go for it and hope for the best...lol...we did actually see this deal even cheaper flying with United Airlines- they had promo sale going on and we could have got the mgm grand for 501 but we were too hesitant and lost out on those. so decided to pay a little more and go with Cosmo and AA.

    Yes one concern is they could move the flights about - i won t be happy at all...would the travel agent be able to do something about that?!

    thanks for your all advice everyone..!!!128522;

    OP, if there is a schedule change to your flight which could impact your transfer flight and therefore arrival time, do the research and find alternatives with AA or maybe BA then contact the travel agent or airline sooner rather than later. I have found AA to be quite accommodating in these circumstance but that was with flights booked direct with the airline.

    who did you book with.


    the airline wont deal with you if you booked through an agent, but the agent should help but some are more helpful than others.


    as stevie says if it happens find some alternatives as that you would be happy with


    Its also possible the agent may delay in telling you so its worth keeping on eye on the airlines website. Can you log in and see your flight details on the airlines website

    Yes I can see 3 of the 4 flights...which is of a very small concern...they all say confirmed. I looked on AA website and skyscanner but can't see one of the internal flights listed...not too concerned at the moment though...yes I will look at alternative flight just in case. I am used to doing all bookings myself as I've heard so many horror sories about intermediaties but i looked high n low and couldnt find anuthing near as good as this...apparently it's because it's been booked as package?! well it's done now - I done my researxh it was between Netflights and travel bag who I've since learnt are owned by the same company so we shall see how things go....

    thanks for reading

    I have booked flights with netflights and have to say they have been excellent at keeping me updated with schedule changes

    We went to Vegas for 4 nights, on the second DAY we ran the RockNRoll marathon.
    The common law of business balance prohibits paying a little and getting a lot. If you deal with the lowest bidder, it is well to add something for the risk you run, and if you do that you will have enough to pay for something better.
