Sun holidays with everyone 17 years old

About 6 of us are planning to go away next summer as we have left school & will have completed a year of college or apprenteship.

We are thinking along the lines of Magaluf, Ibiza or anywhere with clubs & sun.

First choice allow you to book with written consent from your parents but I havent found any other companies that let you travel without someone 18 years old.

I would be 18 just after we got back but due to college I wouldn't be able to take time off then as others wouldnt either.

So, what I am asking, does anyone know people other than first choice who will allow a group of 17 year olds book a holiday abroad?

Also, what other destinations should we consider, bearing in mind we would like lots of clubs, night life & hopefully some sun?

Finally, whe is best to book these things? At the moment, on first choice, the cheapest holiday to the baleric islands is about £400 each for a week self-catering. Is it best to book soon, way in advance, or will the price go down into next year?

Any help would be appreciated as I will be a poor student who wan't an awesome holiday for as little as possible.

Would it be cheaper to book flights seperately & phone a hotel direct rather than booking a package holiday?

Cheers

Thomas Cook also allow under 18's

Best hols when I was that age, Ayia Napa, Malia (Crete), Turkey (Marmaris)

Book now then you can all pay in instalments, with the way the economy is going holiday prices will prob shoot up

Have fun :thumbsup:

I think that club 18 - 30 allows it or twenties. Try some of these. Turkey - bodrum is very cheap when you get there

Can I ask you to think carefully before booking this for next summer.

Although everyone says they want to do this holiday it is a long time till next summer and all sorts of things can happen (you argue with one of your friends, one of you gets a boyfriend/girlfrinnd), and so on, so you may feel differently NEXT summer than you do now.

IF you go ahead and book (which I DONT advise, but you may ignore my advice) then make sure EVERYONE pays up front before you book the holiday.

People may sound certain they are going, and somebody may convince their parents to put the whole holiday on a credit card, but then all of sudden people who have not paid will drop out, or say the cannot find the money.

Sorry to be so negative, but I realise you are very young and full of enthusiasm, but life has a habit of kicking you in the nuts and this could go all wrong.

I did see a question on a web site a few months ago where someone had booked a holiday for a load of friends, and now weeks before the holiday 2 of the people said they could not afford to go and wanted to drop out. The poor person who had paid for the holiday was in a fit trying to sort it all out, so it does happen.

And I will place a £50 bet with you right now, that of all the people who currently say they want to go go on this holiday, at least 1 or 2 will drop out before next summer which could cause problems if they have not paid up front.

I have to agree, a few years ago when i was in my late twenties I had 2 holidays with friends. On both occassions I had at least 2 drop out meaning the rest of us had to make up the difference
