#5

#6
wow super deal, inc car hire,

just can't be beat
#7
Great deal for the flights. When I do fly drive I usually ignore the car hire bit though as when you add the insurance and extras it usually costs more than some of the all inclusive car hire deals you can get.
#8
Excellent price ...HOT

There will be plenty of villa owners on http://www.thedibb.co.uk that could sort you accomadation :thumbsup:
#9
this does not include the insurance package which addds several hundred pounds to the price. These sort of deals with no accommodation are not that spectacular. ie I booked a holiday last year for a couple in sept inc car hire and hotel for a fortnight for £1100. Full insurance is a must in america.

Sorry, but this is not as it seems (I had no plan in going but thought the below would be true, and it was)..

The car hire is car only. Therefore, you have to pay £316 for insurance, otherwise you are driving with the risk of a bill of say £10k for your car, and £unlimited for anything else you hit, plus injury claims. That would put more than a dampener on your holiday.
The cheapest option would be to leave the car, and rebook (but that will cost £250 elsewhere probably for 2weeks).
Or you just use taxis etc.

Add to that, you are going at 4days notice, and not the best time of year. (and with bad exchange rate in a credit crunch). If you wanted to fly cheap, you could have done it cheaper (and planned it) with the NWA flight prices 4 months ago, and gone at your preferred time of the year. I know that people will say to not compare to past deals..but its true :)

Also remember, Florida holidays are not cheap once you add it up, and prices for everything have rocketed due to the exchange rate :thumbsup:

Oh seriously get a life.It's a bargain price.You can struggle through the snow and dark here or have 2 weeks of 70F winter sun. Basic motels on Int drive come in at $29(£23) a night.You can say stuff the car and share a cab to form the airport.Food is still very cheap.If you aren't bothered about parks a villa with pool will set you back less than £300 a week.Find two other couples to travel and share that's can be down to £8pppn.

As for the 'credit crunch' oh please , yes some people are in debt (they already were, some people have lost jobs (and I extend a hand of concern to them) most haven't ,they still have discretionary cash to spend.All good consumers they should always get value.

By god this is value

Super hot, even considering having to add the full insurance. Even as a price for flights only, even considering it's into Sanford and not Orlando, and especially as there are some serious villa bargains at the moment.

I have tipped off my villa owning friends, who keep a their own car in their Florida garage. They are always on the lookout for flights.

It's only four day notice in this particular example, there's no details on the deal posted as to what is actually available in terms of dates. And it's a great time of year to be getting away from a bleak british February cold snap.

Florida can cost a few £ for all the park entries, but it's seriously good value. Eating is cheap. With the current exchange rate I can foresee a lot more deals from the travel companies as they attempt to offset costs.

I made 2 points.. (1) Its not really £216 with a car :thumbsup: (unless you want no insurance)
(2) You could have had a better deal with NWA at any time of year before. I paid under £200 to go in May / June :thumbsup:
So yep, I have a life. And it was free advice. With the exchange rate down, the total holiday will be no cheaper than last year even if you paid higher flights last year :thinking: It is called making people aware before they book and then realise they just spent a lot more than they realised :thumbsup:

Did I say I voted cold? Nope.

Me too, see you there ;-)
#16
Blimey, if you can just drop everything and go, that's a great price.

Don't forget the online visa thingy.
#17
Anybody know if you can pay extra on your own car insurance to cover driving in USA or do you have to use the car rental firms insurance, as i would think this would be alot cheaper.
#18
good price ,pity the usual school hols arent this cheap

Call them and ask.

Seriously, this is a good deal, for those that are wondering about car hire Dollar are selling an entry level hyundai Accent for £152 for 14 days "Fully Covered" from Orlando International.

I've never heard of it costing £300+ just for extra insurance unless you are talking about the CDW and I have never paid for any extra cover. As long as you take the standard insurance that comes with the car you will be fine, as far as I am concerned the collision damage waiver is a rip off.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Damage_waiver

Worth a read. Most of the important stuff is covered already if you pay vai Credit Card.
#21
I believe that is if you pay via US credit card and are a US resident tho.
I doubt you can just go and use your UK car insurance or every1 would do it, but I guess its worth asking
#22
did anyone else see this and immediatly think top gear?
#23
Good price for the flight. I wouldn't even bother picking up the hire car though as the insurance costs are not worth it.
You can get a bigger car with insurance, full tank of fuel and "any driver" for less than the insurance.

As someone who goes to Florida twice a year I would say the £216 is worth it for the flight. :-)

If anyone is booking this and needs accomodation let me know as I can get a villa at a good price. ;-)
#24
Voted hot, Too early for me, anyone got any help as looking to go in June or July... where and how much to pay for flights etc....

Thanks in advance

Is there an award for stupid post of the year? Because, ladies and gentlemen, we have a winner.

Find me a flight for under £300!

You do not have to have the car, anyone can book their own for much cheaper and upgrade it for peanuts when they get there.

But the brilliant bit of the post that secured the coveted award was suggesting it was not cheap because you could have got it ever so slightly cheaper with an expired deal many months ago.

What a goon.

Now where did I put that De Lorean?

The worst post of the year:?

My first 2 sentences..

The car hire is car only


At what point did I say it was cold? :whistling:
I told you pure and simple that the title was misleading,..which it is :thumbsup:

I then said that if you are planning to just drop your stuff and go it must be a last minute thing...which is not as cheap as you think because of the exchange rate Again, true.

I then said, if you had been thinkin about it for a while you probably would have booked via NWA a few months ago at a lower cost, and at your preferred airports and dates :thumbsup:

Dont misconstrue my comments. I never said it wasnt a good deal, and I also said that you are better off booking the car hire seperately which you are agreeing on me with (even though you havent realised that).

It seems that your post is more of a contender for the award than mine is :-D
#27
Voted HOT !

Ive just returned from Orlando and all the shops are on Sale.

Retailers are all too aware of there reliance on tourist shoppers and the strong dollar therefor many of the stores are offering additional 30 to 40% off sale prices. Its just as cheap in the stores as last year.
