Challenge me to find a cheaper flight for your holiday!

Discussion in 'Personal' started by lapinrose, May 15, 2008.

  1. The only way you will reduce the outbound is if you are
    flexible in one of two ways…

    Fly to ‘Reus’ known as Barcelona South (a little bit like
    Stansted is known as London!) from Liverpool. It says it’s an hour away from
    central Barcelona.

    If you were happy with that the flight would be £65.99 Transfer
    bus approx. £19 (22 euros) each or a taxi for £100 ( 120 euros). So overall it
    would save you money as total per person would be approx. £85.

    The other flexibility would come from getting to Leeds Bradford
    airport. The flight is £74 with Jet2.com. That’s direct to BCN.

    Or to shave a couple of pounds off flying from Liverpool –
    BCN via Opodo for £108.55 (Ryanair flight)


    I assume you want to get back to the airport you left from
    but Manchester is the cheapest to come back to.

    Manchester £56 – flybe via ebookers

    Leeds - £71 – Jet2.com

    Liverpool - £68 – Easyjet

    Sorry we’re talking pence and small pounds difference!

    Remember to use TOPCASHBACK if you book through Monarch or
    Opodo etc as you will get cash back on the flights. Every penny counts!
  2. Thank you so much. Been out tonight so I've only just seen your reply. Will check it all out tomorrow. Haven't heard of TOPCASHBACK before but will google it. Will let you know how I get on. Thanks again x
  3. You should easily beat that...
    From LHR it's £108 with Virgin
    If you can go from London City it's £99!

    Have fun :)

    Hi, egyptiangirl. My sweetheart wants to visit our grandchildren in New York, and I don't blame her for this. It would be good if she could be there in early May to coincide with her birthday, she'll be staying with the family and since she's a pensioner, precise dates aren't really that important. She only needs the best flight deals that would allow her to spend a few weeks with them, maybe three. If it's affordable, I'll treat her to it a birthday present.
    What do you think you could come up with?
    Only things that matter is she has to fly from London and arrive in JFK. Night flights do her head in and I shall be tasked with looking after her animals whist she's away, so if the cheapest return flight is too distant, she might come back to find them all dead, which would take the icing off the cake somewhat.
  5. Brilliant! I assume you want direct flights only?

    One adult, one child, any airport in England to Baltimore or Philadelphia. Any date between August 16th and August 20th returning a week to ten days later but must be before the start of term. Best price so far about £522 a piece.

    Is Egyptian Girl still doing this?

    If so, please could you find me a flight from a London airport to Edinburgh on 15th Aug returning on 18th Aug. Would prefer Gatwick. But def not Luton. One person.

    I'm a bit fussy about times and want to go up in the morning and come back in the evening.

    The best I can find is Easy Jet from Gatwick for £117.98 which means I may as well go by train.

    got to be honest, I'm better at finding 'hot' holidays in hotels so cold and chalets I don't really know the best places to look. I'll have a quick search though

    Okey dokey! Thank you for looking. I'm thinking of returning to the Chalet in Lech that we stayed in when I wrecked my knee last time - but perhaps that's tempting fate!! There are quite a lot of good late ski deals at this time of year.

    You're brilliant at the 'hot' ones!!!! xx
  16. Thanks! Good luck and don't break a leg!

    Thanks for looking, Egyptian girl, but that price is without any baggage...works out to £970.12 once that is added. Any more ideas of where to look?
  18. Hi egyptiangirl,

    I want to go From London Any airport to Colombo, Sri Lanka, 6th April 2014 out plus/minus 1 day, return London Any airport 19th April plus /minus 1 day. What's the best deal?
  19. Belle

    best I can see

    book hotel with hotels4u = 1143

    book flights with Monarch = 665 with bags

    total =£904 each but you will need transfers

    oh and use cash back to get £6 on flights and £ 88 cash back on hotel!!
  20. you really need to tell me the best you've found. It gives me something to go on. Not just 'about £600' but exactly what you've found.

    do you mind stop offs?
