flights and accomodation is always going to be difficult for under £500 for 3 people but it will depend on which part you'd like to visit and how much spending money you have available.

I know the people that have been reading my posts are probably getting sick of me saying this but I've managed to organise flights to Bodrum in Turkey and 5* hotel half board included and they have their very own beach for £164 per person and another great thing is we'll need less spending money than most other areas of europe because of the economy.

Let me know which part of Spain or anywhere else you're considering going to and i'll see if i can find something for you. :)

I booked the flights through Travelcare (who were the cheapest for the day we're going), which came to £101 per person including return and meal but apparantly you have to pay £10 per person at the airport for a stamp.

The hotel was booked through [url]www.quickrooms.com[/url] (there's 7% cashback from quidco for the hotel as well) and we arranged it for the Azka Hotel, which even though i've heard previous reports of it being a good 4* hotel, on the site it says it's an official 5* hotel, so maybe they've made some improvements.

Can your parents recommend some places to go in Bodrum?

So far, we're going to go to the harbour, the citycentre, chill at the beach, lounge around the hotel, go out for some meals at some nice restaurants my bro recommended from last year but unfortunately we won't be able to take advantage of the night life due to the kid.

Try Thomson, they dont have any supplements which can boost holidays up by a couple of hundred!

I found this for £465 all in to Salou in a 3 Plus star hotel, great for the little one, family friendly which is important to me being a mother. Are you flexible on your dates wher you can give or take a day?

That would be great if you can, i've never been to Turkey, so i don't have a clue but every time i ask someone that's actually been, they just highly recommend the boat ride that takes you round the islands but that's all they talk about.
If you do decide to go Bodrum and the same hotel, do let me know, as we'll be there during the same period from the 23 june - 29 june (even though the flights on the 22nd, we have 6 full days because the flight times are favourable for morning arrival and late evening departure. :thumbsup:

If you do decide to go, i've found the hotel to be a little cheaper elsewhere and have managed to find a discount code too, so it makes it even better value. :thumbsup:

Good luck on whatever you decide and hope i've been of some help throughout. :)

That's a good tip Angel, i haven't booked through there but had a quick scan before and noticed they had some excellent value packages and i think they're offered exclusive deals, so it's always worth checking them out before you book. :)

Thanks realfreindly man,

I always check here as I have a freind who has 2 disabled children and not much money to spare, but they always go on holiday twice a year as they can take 3 aduts and 2 children for around £350!

Some places charge that per person per week!:w00t:

Wow, that's crazy, they're about £70 per person :thumbsup:

It's so important to look around, as even though we're spending less than £500 for all 3 of us, we saw the exact same deals from Hotels.co.uk for £329.04 for the room alone and that's without sea view and i think it was Ebookers that quoted us around £250 per person for flights, so that's just under £1100. :w00t:

So the lesson is, don't just go with the biggest names, look around and do your homework, it might take an extra hour or 2 but it's worth it to save £600. :)
