@RachelandGromit - you've posted a well thought out, excellently planned, super deal. Well done you! I would just love to go and explore Petra, what an amazing civilisation there was once! Added heat for a very well planned itinerary and a super duper price!

Personally however, Im a bit of a scardy cat these days - there is a very bad risk in that part of the world eg kidnappings, beheadings, shootings and instability (even Turkey!!) - which means I definitely wouldnt risk it even if it £99 for the week. I'm no longer the intrepid traveller i was once, I've been to Egypt several times, and I loved going to Turkey but probably not again for years to come.

I now prefer to holiday in places like Cancun, or closer to home. With recent deals here to Mexico flying from £219, i think i know where I'd feel safer.

Edited By: smiler594 on Nov 24, 2016 10:39: Well done @Rachel

If you're really into seeing Petra you'll need 2 days there, not one. It's a massive site, there's so much more to it than the Indiana Jones facade.

Actually, I would have loved to have been able to join one of the teams working out there - 3 or 6 months or more.....
Now THAT I would put on my bucket list.

Would have been doubly good if I could spend a British winter out there working, away from all the floods, gales and freezing weather.

Me and a few friends priced this up the winter before the Arab uprising
Fly into amman.. Travel to Petra / Mt Sinai / Dead sea / red sea and finish in Cairo
Flgihts were £250 and it was actually a tour for 7 days with Intrepid
Not sure id want to be driving around that part of the world presently and ive been to some warzones in my time

This includes all bus transportation in the cost although some people may prefer to drive. I'd research the TripAdvisor and Lonely Planet forums. Package tours like Intrepid are OK but expensive for what you get. I believe it's around £700pp for a week and then add your flights on top but it's convenient if you don't want to DIY it.

I have been visiting for 15 years & its a very dangerous country if you are not careful.
mainly accidents of all manner, but also violence if you are in anyway confrontational, there is a lot of resentment that simmers below the surface.
INCORRECT.
South Sudan is a very dangerous country. The Congo is a very dangerous country. Pakistan is a very dangerous country.
Thailand is safe everywhere a tourist would set foot, and probably one of the safest SE asian countries (apart from Japan obviously).
It DOES get unsafe in the south near the border with Malaysia, because of the Muslims (yet again), but nobody would have a reason to go there.

Hotukdeals why are you allowing racist and derogatory posts about muslims which contravene decency and your own guidance

@blueskies I'm looking at Thailand for honeymoon next Oct / Nov can you recommend places / things to do?
Bangkok is a must, it's so beautiful, so many gorgeous temples and great food!
Phi phi islands are amazing, arriving into the harbour is unforgettable, the colour of the water is unreal! We did a maya bay sunset excursion it was one of the best things I've ever done, we were literally the last ones on the beach and we got to night snorkel with the bioluminescent plankton, it looked like a million shooting stars underwater, recommend that! Railay beach is gorgeous, a little touristy but nice!
Grab some island hopping day trip from krabi or phi phi there are some amazing secluded islands.
Phuket is nice if you stay away from Patong! We stayed in Karon, beach was lovely!
Head upto Chiang Mai and visit the elephant sanctaury, make sure you visit the ones that rescue the elephants, you get to feed and bath them, it costs a fair few £££ but it's worth it, don't visit the tiger temple or do any elephant rides because the animals are very poorly treated! Chiang mai city itself is beautiful too!
These are the only places I've visited in Thailand, still have a lot to explore! :D
OMG that itinerary looks perfect. Can you find/do another for late Jan early Feb 21 nights. First time to Thailand ....so much to do ...so little time... #forwardplanning :-)

21 nights exploring Thailand for just £706.76 each including all flights, luggage boats and hotels.
I've based this trip on 2 adults flying out of Heathrow on 17th October returning 7th November. You will be flying out with Qatar and all internal flights also include checked in luggage.
This trip is a very busy trip so be prepared for a lot of travelling! The places I have included in this trip are Bangkok, Koh Phangan, Koh Tao, Koh Samui, Phuket and Phi Phi Islands!
All the hotels I've chosen have private bathrooms and excellent reviews on TripAdvisor.
The best way to get from the airports/ports is by local taxi as they're super cheap.
Trip itinerary
17th - 22nd October
You will be leaving for Bangkok on the 17th October and landing early morning on the 18th. You will have 4 nights and 4 full days here before heading to Koh Phangan. I've chosen the 3* The Step Sathon as it has excellent location.
22nd October
In the evening you'll be flying to Surat Thani and staying here before catching the ferry the next morning. I've chosen the 3* The Centrino Serviced Residence as it is centrally located and a good place for you to catch the bus to the ferry in the morning!
23rd - 26th October
The transport for the ferry will pick you up from the new bus terminal and you'll arrive in Koh Phangan around midday. I've chosen the 3* Ban Tai Resort and you will be here for 3 nights..
26th - 29th October
Early morning you'll catch the short 1 hour ferry over to Koh Tao for 3 nights. I've chosen the 3* In Touch Resort.
29th - 31st October
Early morning you'll catch the 2 hour ferry from Koh Tao to Koh Samui where you'll spend 2 nights. I've chosen the 3* Lamoon Lamai Residence.
31st October - 3rd November
You'll be flying out of Koh Samui to Phuket on a short 1 hour flight. You will land in Phuket just after 9am. I've chosen the 3* Capannin Inn which is located in Kata. You will be staying here for 3 nights
3rd - 6th November
You'll head out to Phi Phi on the ferry which will take around 2 hours and you'll arrive there mid morning. I've chosen the 3* Ivory Phi Phi Island for you to stay in for 3 nights.
6th - 7th November
You will be getting the ferry back to Phuket around 1630, from here catch a taxi to the airport to head back to Bangkok for the final night. I've chosen the 3* Royal Bee Apartment as its close to the airport. The flight is in the late evening from Bangkok home so you'll have another day to spend in Bangkok.

It's the 787.
Be aware if these flights are 777 that business class is not what other airlines consider it to be apparently! If it is a Dreamliner (787) then all good but check before you book if considering this deal.

Review shown from seatguru

The 'business' cabin on the 777 is no better than what other airlines call premium economy. HCMC-Sydney in a clapped-out middle seat was horrible. Avoid flying the Vietnam 777; we called it "medieval slave-ship class". Attentive service couldn't make up for the ghastly seat.

Here are a couple of good starting points that may help you:hereAnd here
Thank you so much. That's really helpful. Very out of my comfort zone here!! Going to try and book it now...
Do you have a rough idea of cost of transfers ? Also will there be any other add ons you know of? My friends on a very tight budget!
The prices are all on those links, you'll need to do some reading and decide on what your friend wants as they are all different prices, for example a taxi will be far more expensive than public transport.
Once you've got your flight, hotel and transfers (whichever you choose), that's pretty much it. Of course, food, drink, etc will all be extra but then you can spend as little or as much as you want and Prague is very reasonable for food, drink.
Make sure your luggage meets the airline requirements for hand luggage so you don't get stung on excess luggage or size requirements, and then that's pretty much it.
Again, thank you!
I have flights booked now but can't find hotel on Expedia!!!
Do you have a link?

The prices have gone up a bit, but if you book on Ebookers you can get a better deal.

Make sure you enter the code at checkout where it asks you if you have a voucher and enter the code for 15% off found in the voucher section of hotukdeals here

How much extra did you pay to have the cabin to yourselves? Agree, it's a great idea to travel overnight on the train.

It is the same price as the screen shot, works out at £200, that's for a private cabin. It may be cheaper to fly to Kiruna and then add transfers to Abisko but when you allow transport to and from airports and a night accommodation costs and time it's actually more cost effective using the train;

Hot hot hot. Abisko has been on my to-do list for years and years. Every year it seems to get more popular so I better act on it. This trip looks fantastic, and the night train looks much better than many other European night trains! Defo gonna be looking into this one!

Yes I really do recommend the night trains. The Swedish ones come up with the Venice to Vienna ones as my top rated. You can save money by sharing a cabin bur we paid extra for the two of us. We took some food and a bottle of wine and it was lovely. Wandering up and down the cabin in your pj's and we saw the lights from the chain too. When accommodation is so expensive the trains are actually good value.

MrSpooniverse
Heat added as very well thought out / planned and full details included. The only thing that would worry me is the number of parts of the trip that need to be booked separately - if one of the hotels etc was fully booked then you'd need to find an alternative, probably at a much higher cost.

I normally do it all at the same time, sometimes I have about 10 tabs open at once booking it all together! I've just done my Japan itinerary and I had about 13 tabs open all at once, the hotels are all free cancellation I think, so if you sort these first and then your flights (you can always cancel your hotels and rebook).

Be warned. Expedia's customer service, should you need it, is bad in a way that's hard to believe until you've experienced it.


Not really, recently spoke to them about changing accomodation and they were first class.
Lastminute.com also have some packages for Vegas at good prices.
anyone know if its best to pre-book a hotel for a July (1st or 2nd week) trip or is it perhaps better to get a walk in rate ? Also would a walk in rate be any cheaper anyway ?

Free car hire with Complete cover insurance is still avaliable - came up when I was searching recently.
Looked recently and was quoted £4 for a 10 day hire! (Partial fuel refund)
Looking at the fuel pollicy it gives a guide of €50 for a tank of fuel and €25 refilling charge.
Full to Full was only £45 so went fror than - at least you know what it is costing up front.
pretty sure firefly are the ones who have a mandatory administration fee at the desk as well as a dodgy fuel policy.
Apart for the included third-party and collision damage insurance, no-one HAS to purchase more insurance. But in that case, it's only reasonable they take a credit-card reserve for any non-insured costs you may incur - wheels, tyres, keys, etc. At Alicante, most agencies now operate a refund system for unused/returned fuel. The only 'con' now is the refueling charge (about 25€) in the initial fuel cost which does NOT get refunded. It's also becoming more prevalent to have an 'excess' in the included insurance.

Incidentally, Carjet did offer some FREE cars at Alicante as long as you buy their complete cover insurance package at c£4 a day. But looks like that offer has closed now.
Never in my literally hundreds of times having hired a car have i ever been charged a cleaning fee.
pay by credit card so when they charge the €150 "cleaning" charge you can charge it back. Trust me, read the small print, they will (try to) screw you

I have noticed that you don't arrive until late at night. The hotel states that the check-in time is between 2-7 pm. Did you have to pay the hotel extra for checking in later at night? I would like to go here, but I don't know how strict the hotels are as regards checking in - when we spent to Spain last year, we had to pay an extra fee of 30 euros for arriving after the check-in time, but this was for us collecting the keys to our accommodation from an office in another town, whereby an employee had to stay late to give us the keys.

I didn't see anything to suggest there was but it is peak season and I'd imagine places would be busy. I'd drop them an email http://algheroresidencebouganvillea.weebly.com/contatti.html

Sardina is beautiful. Beaches and water some of the best in Europe IMO. August will be the hottest month., too hot for many. It is also the month when all.... ALL the Italians head to the beach. A car would be very useful on the island as public transport is scarce. If possible September, in terms of climate, prices and crowds, would be the month to go.

Yes I would certainly look at hiring a car locally for a few days to explore. Tripadvisor has some good options for car hire. I guess if you haven't got kids in school September will also be much better priced, as will other months, but to fly in and our of Alghero this is good value. You could consider other airports in Sardinia which may be cheaper but I think Alghero us a much better place to base yourself.

Great! Many thanks for the share OP!
Nice, my kind of holiday. Did San Francisco to San Diego, ending up in Vegas, spending a week there. Fantastic roadtrip, with some amazing sights on the way.....so many brilliant memories, hearst castle, monteray classic car show, muscle beach, etc etc.....with the biggest being a blinding fog near San Simeon which meant staying the night in a motel 6, which we escaped from early morning after a sleepless night worrying what we might have picked up from the bed.

As with the Australian road trip, half decent long haul flights and great effort, but planned so specifically it's almost meaningless.
Maybe I've just been doing them wrong, but the whole point of a road trip to me was always the freedom, not being constrained to a tightly planned schedule!

This is just an example, like the Australia one you can adjust parts of the itinerary and with a bit of jiggling you may find the flights at similar prices too. I like to book my accommodation in advance as I really like to know where I am staying rather than take my chances after a some very dodgy accommodation in Australia I learned my lesson. If you have a tight itinerary too then planning can help. If it's a few months where you don't have a tight schedule then it's different. Of course you could just stop at motels en eroute too and not book anything in advance. I'm not sure season wise how busy LA and San Fran are though.
good thanks
I flew to Hawaii from Manchester last year and my cases got lost on the return journey! They ended up in London and took 9 days to come back on the hottest week of yhe year in the UK. Not great when all your summer gear is in your missing suitcase. In all the time of me taking open jaw flights and multiple connections my bags have always been lost on the most simple and direct flights! I must be unlucky....

English is not even my mother language
That much is obvious.

Even the good one, mother language specialists, are actually very pathetic the way they speak and write, schools and certificates do not help at all sometime.
By this sentence.
You left yourself open to attack by posting a comment trolling the thread.

you are on doing other things more creative in order to survive and were language is not that important
Not sure what you mean here, language is the main reason why homosapians are the dominant species on this planet. Until very recently it was key to survival. Also, it's "where" not "were".
I left that on purpose but well done for not attacking me, even so it took you sometime to realize about where and were. In my life I experienced that it is not all about languages but obviously it must be all about you being a homosapians and I might possibly be a sapiens instead but surely the sense of humour is not a friend of yours at all.

do they still find turists in pieces??
Yeah they butcher them - just like you did with the English language.
For a genuine misspelling which I did not bother to correct in a moment of a hurry!! Left unattented to attract the attention of someone like you that cares, wondering how perfect you are on doing other things more creative in order to survive and were language is not that important. English is not even my mother language but in reality I can understand you. Even the good one, mother language specialists, are actually very pathetic the way they speak and write, schools and certificates do not help at all sometime. If a foreigner cannot understand them, it should be treated as a sad case as English is one of the most beautiful and easiest languages grammatically. What can I say; unfortunately it happens in all languages, lol. All written by my hand here without the help of a spell checker etc.. and sorry for my possibly wrong funny structural way to express myself and for some possible misspellings.

Would love to do a trip incorporating New Orleans, St. Pete's , Clearwater and Florida Keys, do you have any ideas on best way to plan it please?
My top tip for planning (and managing) a US road trip is learn how to use Furkot.com. It's not the easiest of websites to use, but is amazingly powerful once you get used to it and it can even send your planned route to a range of satnavs (the shortest route between two places is not always the most interesting!). You can set a daily maximum for the number of hours to drive each day (and override this if you wish). Furkot will then automatically suggest where to stop, which hotels to book (within a budget you set) and highlight interesting sights that are within a certain distance of your route.

Furkot also allows you to edit and update the route as you go and allows you to keep an eye on your end date (assuming you've got fixed dates).

Wow all sounds fantastic. Would love to do something similar with my two teenagers next year but wouldn't know where to start!! Can you sleep 2 adults, two teens in rooms generally?
I'm not sure but depending on the ages the teens they may be classed as adults? May be worth looking at apartments or similar in Airbnb?
Would be 17 and 16 and we are only able to travel in the summer holidays!

Hey rach are you back yet from penguinlandhttps://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/236x/f0/ea/8d/f0ea8da2e683993d54c98480d18ee0de.jpg

Oh I got so many penguin pictures, rockhopper, king, gentoo, elephant seals. It was epic.... My pictures are like David Attenborough quality.
Sounds amazing did you see any killer whales as well.

Prague Beer Museum
Been there, done it, got the T-shirt!

Seriously though, a wonderful city break, the beer is amazing, the food, the views (women included), ultra cheap metro and buses. What's not to love?
Loved Prague when I went with the better half!

Absolutely stunning, wonderful restaurants and bars (for a fraction of UK prices).

We also stayed at this hotel (but upgraded to their honeymoon suite). The hotel itself was great, incredibly clean and quiet. It's in a slightly more residential area, although we opted to head out for every meal and drinks, so can't comment on any food or drinks.

The walk to the bridge is about 15-20 minutes, but incredibly pleasant along the riverside (although freezing! - we went in March). There is also a tram stop within a stones throw, but we walked everywhere.

Highly recommended! 8)

expedia logoExpedia’s History and Development

Expedia began in 1996 and was the first internet project launched by software giant Microsoft. In 2001, however, Expedia branched out on its own to become a multibillion-dollar company, with global sites in 30 different countries. The Expedia website books flight tickets, hotel rooms, car hire, holiday packages, cruises, tourist attractions, and other vacation services using Sabre and Amadeus reservation systems for flights, Pegasus and Worldspan for hotels, and other global distribution systems for its range of services. To complement its digital travel agent facilities, Expedia also takes bookings over the phone.

The ATOL certificate is your guarantee that your holiday is protected as soon as payment is made to Expedia and ATOL will inform you of what you need to do should Expedia cease operations. As an IATA (International Air Transport Association) accredited agent, Expedia is part of the airline trade association responsible for developing and adhering to the activities, policies, and standards of the airline industry.
