High street travel agents! How to save £1,000

Thought id share this one before going work. Better half went to price up a holiday for the family plus one half off the outlaws. Came back with a price of £2,300. Said it was a good price and asked about booking it.

Needles to say I didnt fancy paying that. Phoned them back and she managed to knock another £300 off.

I then told her that I was going to look on the net. Have since looked and managed to find similar holiday for £1,400.

Just had a phone call from the agent saying they have found another hotel in same resort for £1,300

These travel agents must be on a right racket then or are they just too lazy to get a better deal for the customer. I couldnt belive the first quote as we have always booked our holiday this way, staying at same resort going same time off the year.

We usually get a very good deal and its not worth looking on net. What anoyed me the most was last year the same holiday for same group was £1,400. When I explained that I could get the holiday cheaper on the net and pay via credit card for protection her reply was " they charge a fee for paying on cards" my relpy was "I dont think the fee would be £1,000"

What a crock of naughty words.

Unless you're making the booking on the foreign site and paying in their money, thus requiring an exchange rate charge, I can't see it.
