Hey guys. Girlfriend and her family have invited me to go to Florida with them next September. Trouble is, there is 6 of us in total. Wondering if there is any users here who may of recently went to Florida for a holiday and can recommend a hotel or a villa for us.

Am i best to shop about and get the flights and accom seperate, or best to leave it to the likes of Thomas Cook to sort it all out?

edit: Would be looking to be leaving from Glasgow

For a group of 6 I would hire a villa.
Last time i went I did all the parts separately, via the internet (rather than a package deal from a travel agent) - much cheaper! Although it may be worth getting some figures together then seeing if a travel agent is willing to better the price for you.
Don't forget a hire car (and don't let them pressure you at the car hire place into upgrading to a bigger car than you you want - we were told we wouldn't fit the suitcases in to the car we had ordered so we REALLY needed to hire a bigger car & we had to do it now because all the bigger ones would be gone very shortly:whistling:).
And don't forget travel insurance (hopefully you won't need it, but just in case...)
And have a good time!:thumbsup:

depends on the time of year, if you are going in September, after the kids go back to school the flights come down quite a bit, also if you have a villa or apartment it is much better as you will have more of a chance of relaxing on your 'days off' from the parks, this is very difficult if you stay in a hotel. flights in general are between £200 and £350, I have actually ben for £79 and £120 at this time of yer just depends on if you get lucky, the villa or apartment would cost you approx £300 per week so between the six of you with separate flights and accommodation it should be in the region of £400 - £450 each for the two weeks, the the car hire which will be a 7 seater, I usually book a 7 seater, even if there is only 4 of us as this is the car I drive here, that should cost approx £400 per week inclusive of all insurance but you may get a deal on that too
Is it this September or next you are going

I think under 25's have a premium everyday so you might want to look into that.

We always go to Florida in a big group and I would defiantely recommend a villa. Shop about and try different places, I wouldn't go with Thomas Cook or anything, think you could get a better deal yourself. Last time we went with Ocean Florida ( I think ) and it was the best, great flights, lovely villa, and the cheapest by far. September is a great time to go as the schools will be back so should be cheaper too

My memory fails me :oops: We have stayed in so many over the years. Normally we go for the Kissimmie Area which is about 10minutes tops from Disney :-D

The last twice weve been we got a Villa off ebay. Quite a few on there are British owned so a simple phone call & can be all sorted.
