good price, flights only from Gatwick and for Thursday 3rd Sept.
#2
car hire is only included if your departure is more than 3 days away. This unfortunately would not be the case now with your selected dates. still hot though :thumbsup:

Supply and demand.
#10
******! I paid £460 for flights alone last week..
#11
From the website
NOTE: This hotel has introduced a compulsory resort fee of US$3.00 per room, per night (which covers the hire of room safes and local and 0800 phone calls), payable locally. For bookings made from 09/06/09 - car hire (with third party insurance only) is included.

So as the other person said, there is no car hire either.
Also airport transfers are not included (ie at arrival).

Overall good deal, but I strongly suspect not 265 in total!

lol im sorry but taking 1 week of your childs life to take what could be for some the holiday of a lifetime realyl outweighs the arguments of staying in school.

Unless its like a week of exams when your 16 or 18 i really would question that there is anything wrong with taking your child on holiday in term time. i know when i have kids i wont think twice about it if the deal is good.

because no adults on their own would like to go or perhaps those who have kids UNDER 4 who DONT yet go to school, ffs holidays are ALWAYS cheaper outside of the holidays

Get a grip!!

lol you'll think twice when the school pass your "holiday" details on to social services and you get a "visit" and yes this DOES happen :(

I went to cost up at the final page and they charge you a late booking fee of £18 Per Person! :?

Just don't tell them, tell them you have swine flu.
Although i hardly class a week in some grimy hotel in orlando a "holiday of a lifetime" lol.

Are there any other dates available, perhaps in October/November? Or is the weather terrible then?

bring it on. I will have no problems giving full justification to why I took my child on holiday when prices where up to 50% less than in term time. Besides who is to say i wont do home schooling. In fact i know for a fact that you can write a letter to most headmasters of most schools giving justification and very few know that can do much about it. This is quite common practice and getting a visit from social services only happens in extreme circumstances where the welfare of a child is being brought into question. If you presented this to social you will be way back in the list of priorities compared with some of the issues they have to deal with. Comparing taking your child on a holiday in term time with some of the serious issues child services deal with is just insuting on so many levels

£380 for the 14, flight, car and hotel at 4 star Radisson - So noone can complain about that one being ****
#22
I stayed in this hotel and few years ago and although its a bit tatty and could do with a refurb it really is OK. The location is excellent
The hotel does smell "Musty" but so does many others in Florida, I think its the weather and the fact the air cons on all day.
In short if you want 5 star dont stay here. If you want a bed for the night and not to fussed about it being a little tatty and tierd stay here!

Remember you only sleep in the hotel in Orlando, Sooooooooo much to do!:-D

can you hire cars in America if youve only had your license 2 years?..
i read somewhere you had to be driving for 5 years before you can hire over there..

you can do all the "home schooling" you want. However, you must ensure that all relevant parties are informed of your intention to do so and that you are able to fulfil your child's educational needs to a standard required by law.

The justification you have is hilarious. It's not that serious compared to other issues so it's ok to do.

You may think that you are being clever but if everyone else acted in this manner then all parent would be pulling their kids out of school all the time because of a good deal...Can you see the problem with that?

I dont agree with everyone Re: taking children out of school.
Have taken my children on holiday in school term time for years now, no Im not proud but it but it saved a fortune, my children are now experienced travellers, understand different cultures, etc.
My daughter passed 11 GCSE'S grades A-B inc (English ,maths, science ,history, georgraphy, spanish, fench) and is aiming for UNI next year.
As long as they have a good attendence record and work hard when in school, I see it as an extension of learning, sorry if some dont agree.

The offer is great, but abit short notice and not good if you have children as starting new school year or school..

I 100% agree. Me and the g/f lets say had different upbringing. I was fortunate enough to go abroad alot when i was a kid and then went travelling alot when i was 18/19. i actually left college early to save up. I left with average GCSE's and no A-levels. 8 yrs on I'm quite proud with what ive achived and earning a good living and earning just as much as many of my friends that went to UNI with no student debt.

My g/f has said many times she wants to take her children travelling as much as possible to learn about other places and not stay in the UK all the time. She didnt have the chances and experiences that i had when i was growing up and she feels she missed out. If that means taking time off during term time then so be it. While no maybe sideal in the short term it will greatly improve there social and interaction skills with other people especially from other cultures and backgrounds.

All in, not a bad deal. I've stayed at most of the 3star motel type places all along and around I-drive, including the Comfort inn. It isnt great, but it isnt bad either. You can expect a dated, but clean room, with 2 beds, a tv, fridge and bathroom. And obviously, A/C. It is walkable to popeyes chicken and international drive. plus, head out of the hotel and head down sandlake away from I drive and you go past a massive walmart, a racetrac gas station (that does the largest variety of awesome coffee you'll probably ever see!) and end up at florida mall.

Just a couple of things to bear in mind...

I've hardly ever seen a package deal that included car insurance. And it is an absolute killer so look into carefully. While the car is included in the price, the insurance is not. And in a lot of cases, the insurance they INSIST you take out is more than the cost of the car hire. Dont ask me why or how they justify it, I dont know, but whenever I've gone on a package or flydrive deal, I've always ended getting a seperate car from netflights or auto europe. Even though the package included a car, they wanted an extra £250-£300 on top for the insurance. You can rent a fully insured car for under £200 so it just isnt worth it. Like I say, read the small print on that because you may end up with a nasty surprise when you go to pick your car up.

If you're only doing a week, plan your days and tickets very carefully! a lot of the tickets are geared toward two week holidays and will end up being a waste. Plan out what you want to do when you want to do it, and look at your ticketing options very carefully.

Have fun, I'm off out there for halloween horror in a few weeks!

I appreciate some of your points here. Your children would have probably learnt more in the week or two that they were off than they would have done had they been in school. You clearly understand the importance of travelling. However, not every child that is taken out of school during term time is going somewhere they can understand different cultures. Benidorm anyone?

I wouldn't call it an extension of learning though because they miss out on what was taught in school whilst they were away. I don't think that your daughters success is something that you can use to defend your position here though as she's clearly more than capable of doing well. Perhaps she'd would have got straight A's if she wasn't taken out of school?

Are you suggesting that If the attendence record is good and the child works hard then they should be allowed to have time off? I'd prefer teachers to teach rather than decide who has worked hard enough to be allowed time off to go on holiday.

That’s a really good point made about Benidrom etc and also about allowing time off just because a student works hard. However ultimately a parent is responsible for their child. And you would have to send me to jail to prevent me from taking my child on holiday with me and even then id fight it as far and as long as I could..

I turned out ok :p
