Good price and def not bad for those looking to save money but still have a decent holiday.

The only thing I would say is that the Econo lodge is very basic. I have stayed in a few in the US (altho admittedly not Orlando) and the quality can vary greatly. I would recommend checking the tripadvisor reviews just incase. Still, at that price you could get a hotel somewhere else if its no good!

Wish I had a spare 2 weeks leave.... :(

Got a similar deal for 3 at £1500 with Thomson flying from Brum on the 19th May also stopping at the Econolodge with "free" car.

Having looked around for a while, I agree this is a good price as many cheap sounding deals don't include extras such as luggage allowance and in-flight meals which soon bumps up the price. Just wish there were some amazing special offers to be had for the theme park tickets as you're looking at the £170 mark for the 6 non-Disney parks....still good value across a fortnight though!

I stayed in the QIP last year in orlando, its the bottom end of international drive nearer seaworld. Was quite impressed as it was only like a quid more a night than econo lodge and it was quite nice :) They did a free shuttle to universal too which we used to save on the parking costs.

As someone else said, you're only there to sleep and wash every day so can't really go wrong.

Would highly recommend buying this map if you go. It's fantastic and proved invaluable when I was there.

Free car your having a laugh, the car might be free but don't forget you will have to pay insurance to drive the damn thing which isn't cheap believe me.

How much spending money would you recommend for a fortnight? Minimum/for a decent time?
#9
Surely £230 off £659 is 35% off (£230 = 35% of £659 [ £230+£429=£659]). I think you mean it usually costs 45% more.

Great deal though.

if youve already got your park tickets which is easily the dearest thing , then its just your food which is SOOOOO cheap on I- DRIVE. huge breakfast for about $5-10. even huger evening buffets about $15. water and snacks at the parks which you can get cheap from the walmarts etc. transport is easy and cheap as you get on the I - TROLLEY bus for a few dollars a week ( unlimited use), so i guess about $50 a day per person should get you by on food, drinks etc.

Agreed, I went with thomson and totally ignored the "free" car hire they included and instead rented from US Car Hire/Budget and paid everything upfront and it worked out a great deal. Got a great car too.

It varies depending if you have bought all your park tickets before going, if you are using public transport and if you are catered or not. I bought *most* of my park tickets before going, had a hire car and wasn't catered. I took 500 dollars for 10 days and it was about right.

Would highly recommend reading some of the threads on theDIBB forums before you go. Some excellent advice on there, one of the threads is to do with spending money.

Good deal. 2 years ago I went to Travelodge for 2 week on international drive for £435 with free breakfast everyday so considering the pound is weaker this is a very good deal.

Yes mate, hence the "quotes" around free! Even the travel agents are honest about it nowadays but that wouldn't help if booking online.

is it free car hire with insurance? cos last year we went with First Choice, got Car hire included in the price but not the Insurance, and it would cost round £200 on top for it. At the end my husband book a car hire and insurance with diffirent company and it worked out cheaper than First Choice.

have to buy car insurance on top from them which will be over £200+. Or take a chance and drive round 3rd party only insurance which i think is included. I wouldn't chance it though,not 2 weeks in Orlando.

This is the best deal i've seen for ages. H & R!!

Booked it packed it.......................

Good deal

Insurance for me cost £600 or something crazy. I decided it would be better to go for the insurance that covers you if you hit other people and not just for your own car. I think they might have been taking the pi55 a little.

Ive done these "Free" car packages and refused to pay the insurance premium extra additions twice as you are are still insured and 3rd party fire and theft is all I normally drive with. 1 of the offices got a little biit arsey with me as they said everyone pays the extra insurance on my package and had to make 20 mins of phone calls to find out that I could still drive the car away without paying the extra $450. I have heard that for peace of mind you can buy topup insurance from web companies in the UK much cheaper. Hope that helps.

Great price!!!!!

Spending money-ise you're biggest cost is going to be the Disney tickets - to the extent that a 5 day pass @ £229 to cover the 4 major Disney parks (plus 2 water parks) is almost as much as a straight 2-week pass @ £234. Expensive but fantastic IMO.

Universal's a lot cheaper (£86 for 2 weeks covering both parks)

Cheers

We got the free car hire with our Thompsons Orlando holiday a few years back (2006). I don't remember having to pay on top for insurance, or if we did it wasn't enough that it left a lasting impact.

We did a full east coast road trip in that car, up to nashville, then right up to Niagra Falls, New York, Washington etc, added 4,000 miles to the clock, and 10 days of driving 5 hours per day. I think the price without car hire was about £10 cheaper, so that worked out quite well. Fuel then was a quarter of the price as it was here, but the locals were complaining because it had doubled in the previous 2 years to get to that price. We saw a space shuttle launch on the 4th of July, I saw the world cup final in a bar at the bottom of the empire state building, got stuck in a lift in a hotel in broadway for half an hour and saw harlem at 4am, hookers, hustler, pimps and their johns, dealers, stealers and Harley three wheelers. It was an eye opener!

As for Orlando itself, nah, not for us. It's a bit of a Mickey Mouse town if you ask me :)
