Myself and a few mates booked a holiday last weekend. We are going in August and we knew we would be able to save money if we left it as a late deal, but we just wanted to get it sorted. Anyway, for ages the prices for what we wanted were all about £400-ish. I have been on the same travel agents site this week (I don't know why) and they are all atleast £100 less and it's still nowhere near being a late deal! I don't know how much we would stand to lose if we canceled it ( it may be less than what we could gain by re-booking, i don't know ???), but also, would it be worth phoning to say we could book it now cheaper and that we're willing pay any cancellations in an attempt to get some money back? :) Stingy i know, but still, i like saving money like the rest of you.
We should have probably left it later, but we wanted to have it sorted out. It just seems so weird that within a week the price has shifted so much.
