Well I just got home this afternoon after being stranded in Tunisia since Saturday!
We had booked an all inclusive for 2 weeks through lowcostholidays.
When our flight home was cancelled the rep told us to stay in the same hotel so we would be able to get the transfer to the airport. The hotel then decided we would have to pay £250 per night (although the following 2 nights they dropped it to £100 pn).
Our transfer company- resorthoppa.com then decided they were not going to pick us up from the hotel even though we paid £135 for transfers. No reason was given for this & the rep just told us to get a taxi (another £125).
In the end we flew to Paris Wednesday morning, hired a car (250 euros) & drove to Calais. When we got there in the afternoon we took one look at the chaos & went to a hotel. When we went back to the port first thing this morning there were no queues & we breezed straight through. At Dover we hired another car for £90 (nationalexpress would have been £70) & finally got home this afternoon.
Original cost of holiday £1700
Cost getting home £1500
