Dont know why this is cold voted, seems like a good deal, I may even book one for my family !!!
#2
Voted cold , spending money won't go as far as this time last year 1.4$ to the £ now , was 2$ to the £. Plus this is during term time
#3
With the exchange rate at $1.32 to £1, the USA like other places is not an attractive holiday destination. The cost of food and drinks will be approx 40% more expensive than this time last year
#4
I hope anyone now flying to USA
knows the new laws that have come in.
You can now no longer fill in a Visa Waver form on the plane.
You now have to apply online at least three days before you go.
If you dont do this when you arrive in USA immigration will not let you in

Oh get a grip. Voting this deal cold because of the state of the economy? This is a good deal and unfortunately the OP does not have control over what the exchange rate will be at time of travel.
I am extremely tempted by this deal and vote HOT as it is a great price.
#8
I reckon the rate will start creeping back up soon. This is hot anyway. Like said above, its still much cheaper than the UK even at $1.3

You still have to fill them in.

You now have to apply online at least three days before you go.


It is only a recommendation of 72hrs you could do it the same day you fly.

they have said that they will not refuse entry, but your airline may not let you fly.

Each time you fly out to the US, you’ll be used to completing the green Visa Waiver form. Well now the US Customs and Border Protection are introducing a new electronic system which will replace this process, and be mandatory from 12 January 2009.

Passengers travelling to the US under the Visa Waiver Programme may now apply in advance of travel for a travel authority using the Electronic System for Travel Authorization (ESTA) website.

Once granted, a travel authority is valid for two years. Before each new trip to the US, you must update your travel plans and address details via the ESTA website. It is your responsibility to make the application and to ensure that you have a valid travel authority before you travel. VIRGIN ATLANTIC

From 12 January 2009, all Visa Waiver nationals (unless they have a visa or residency card) will only be able to travel if they have a confirmed travel authority via the ESTA website. Passengers should apply for a travel authority at least 72 hours before departure. In usual circumstances a response (ESTA granted or denied) is given in seconds. For a small minority of passengers the decision will take up to 72 hours. If an ESTA is denied then passengers must obtain a visa for your journey.

From 12 January 2009, we cannot fly any passenger to the US until either a travel authority has been granted, or the passenger provides a visa or residency card.

In that case 'whats money' - why post a deal then. Go on a Sun £9 holiday for quaility time 0r spend £3000 a night in a fancy hotel then!!

The state of the economy matters when posting a 'deal' there is no point saving £'s only to have to use the saving to make up for the poor exchange rate. 31 degrees says it all. Don't get in a hissy because the majority don't think it's worth a good deal

+ Pre-school kids won't remember a holiday of a lifetime, you need emotional blackmail to use years later when they are naughty

Me and my hubby travelled all over the world before we had children.
Florida is one of the best places for a family as we can have a few days in disney for kids (WHAT BETTER PLACE FOR KIDS), few days staying with my family in Tampa (QUALITY FAMILY TIME), 3 nights in Daytona Cocoa Beach (BEACH TIME & RELAX)
Then June 2nd me and the kiddies off to Spain to visit my parents for 5 weeks
Then 16th July all off down to Cornwall to visit my hubby's family for a week
Plenty of quality family time :p

If the kiddies don't remember this year always next years or the year after that or that..... We go every year as we have family to visit



I feel bad for people invoved in credit crunch I really do thats why i posted this a cheap family holiday.:p
#16
Heat added, it's a good deal if anyone wants to go there, and that's the basis I always give heat/cool.

A deal is only a deal if it's something you want, too many people waste money buying stuff just because it's cheap. Just ask my bank manager :oops:

Vote a deal cold if you can get a better deal elsewhere, not just because you don't like the price/spending money will be tight etc
#17
I've just return from Florida 2 days ago, you are right saying that with the exchange rate it's not as cheap as it was, but even so its still a lot cheaper than here!!!! Eating out, clothes and petrol are a lot cheaper ($1.79 a gallon of petrol) it was $4 and rising in June when we last went. Not a bad deal in my opinion, just take loads of spending money and empty suitcases to fill :thumbsup: Oh yeah and the sun shines there aswell :thumbsup:
#18
i started reading this post because i too have a family of 5 with 3 kids under 4 years old, and i thought it sounded a good deal.

but i have now almost forgotten about the details as all i can think about is that i am never gonna dare to post a deal on here as i'd be too scared of the backlash! :?
#19
Florida is ace, my favourite place in the world. Cant wait to take the kids.
Thanks for the great deal 1foxyminx, heat and rep added.:thumbsup:
#20
HOT ! HOT ! HOT ! HOT !

That`s a crazily cheap deal to get the 5 of you to Florida for 2 weeks and anyone who doesn`t agree is simply being ridiculous . There`s no way I could`ve found this cheaper and am now serioulsy considering a swift trip to U.S.A.
And to all the `oooeee exchange rate isn`t good` crew , GET A GRIP , even if it goes 1:1 U.S.A.is still cheaper than rip off Britain

great find op
#21
Last easter I went to Orlando, family of four cost over £6K, so this is blindingly hot.

Can't believe that people are trying to do it down.

I can't see anything but a hot deal here. Wish I had the time to go, although I don't like the sound of 2 weeks in a Super 8, I would arrange my own villa and it would still be hot.

[COLOR="Red"][SIZE="7"][FONT="Impact"]HOT![/FONT][/SIZE][/COLOR]
#22
Hot, because everybody has £2500+ for a holiday, right?
banned#23
Great deal, not sure you should be going on holiday if you're skint, but nice if you're not!
#24
Stonking price, damn I wish I wasn't so skint!
#25
super 8 motel - yuch!! you can book this for $29 per room per night, making the accommodation worth approx £294.00!
#26
Flight only on Virgin website for 2 adults, 2 children and 1 infant on those dates is £1,341.90. I would book my flights and then book accom. seperately and stay somewhere slightly decent!

No offence intended.

Yet people would vote £2500 hot for a 60" Sony TV??

This is a great deal although I think I'd pay a little more for better accommodation, but hey you only sleep there, I've seen mugs pay that kind of money for a fortnight in Turkey!!! April is also a great time to go to Orlando, not too hot and only minimal queues at the parks. I for one would still make Florida my only holiday destination even if the £ and $ were 1 for 1.

Indeed! Honestly, the numpties on here. With the US economy as it is the cost of living has reduced, lots of sales on in the Malls.

Great price. Sorry some idiots have been so aggressive and rude about not only your deal but about you too.
I have just booked a Canvas holiday to Brittany for 2 weeks in July. This is also for a family of 5. Before flights it costs £1700, cheapest flights I've found are £800 from Edinburgh. Then will need car hire (£350?) and spending money. So its going to cost £3K+. Holidays aren't cheap, especially with a weak pound so any good deals appreciated. Our kids are only 4,3,1, so too soon to goto Florida, or so I thought until you found this deal!:thumbsup:
#31
It's a good price actually and I would look into it being a family of 5, thanks for the head up last time I looked it was about £2500 we looked at October last year, but could not go to that much.
This thread stinks of sour grapes, not nice..............................................
#32
im a little confused,i thought you could only either go through quidco or nectar but not both together,can someone please tell me how to do both,pleeeeaasseee,many thanks xx
#33
How rude some people have been on this and very personal too this this member.

Hotel is fine and basic and this is a great price, you will love it, in the heart of it all there.
Regarding the visa its exactly what the fill out on the plane (Green form) however you now do it online, nothing more or anything to worry about, just came back myself, love Florida its great.

Cracking deal at that price, have a great time you deserve it.

Don't be put off by the idiots that have such negative views.. You always get a few.
They never manage to offer a cheaper alternative, but vote cold for personal reasons, not the fact that a better deal might be found,

Do post anything you find, and ignore the nutters..:thumbsup:
#36
This is a great deal, especially as you're fling MAN - MCO and not the awful Sanford airport.

For all those with kids and that can afford it, GO!!!!!

We've been lucky enough to have 4 holidays in Orlando in the past 10 years and our kids, like us, loved it. By all means visit Disney and Universal but don't forget places like Sea World and Busch Gardens.

If you do go, for goodness sake get a car. Yes, there is public transport and taxis in / around Orlando but driving is so much easier, quicker and efficient. You'll have a much better holiday if you drive. Trust me, been there, seen it, done it!

Voted Hot
Went with family of 12 last Feb, had a great time!
#38
I have said before on different threads, why is something seen as a good deal as its less than it normally costs? Its all down to family income, the money used for the holiday would last me 3-4 months for rent and food so isnt that a better deal?

What people mean is that a family can have a good time spending little, sure they may have "more" fun at Disneyworld but who says they wont have fun at Butlins? and isnt the whole point spending time with family?

Nothing wrong with wanting to go but the way people act like its not a lot of money.

EDIT, im not saying its not a good deal to some as it is for being cheaper than others but that doesnt make it cheap so im not going to vote cold as that would be petty.
#39
Heat added. The exchange rate is immaterial as to whether this is a good deal or not. You are rating the price of the holiday. Sounds like a great deal to me.

A good deal is a good deal whether it's for a 9p bar of chocolate from Tesco or a £1600 holiday from Virgin, everybody likes a good deal not just those on income support*!!

*used as an example, certainly no offence meant to anyone by this post.
