Brighton or Barbados for May Bank Holiday Weekend! - £49 @ Carling

49
Found 14th Apr 2015
Wasn't sure whether to put this in deals or competitions, but as you have to pay for it, I'm putting it in deals.

At 10am on 15th April, Carling will be allowing people to purchase a ticket for May bank holiday weekend for £49pp in groups of multiples of 2. One out of 3 groups will be going to Barbados, the rest will be going to Brighton. There are 1000 tickets available. You can't take kids though, over 18s only, so although it's not any good for me, it will no doubt be great for some of you. Good luck all.

"Tickets are only available in groups, because we all know being a billy-no-mates is rubbish. You can get a pair for £98 or four for £196. And you've gotta be 18, because beer.

1000 tickets will be available to buy from 10am on the 15th April. All getaways are for The May Day Bank Holiday and once they’re gone, they’re gone - so make sure you've got your passport number ready.

1 in 3 groups (yep you read that right, 1 in 3) will be jetting off to Barbados while everyone else bags a weekend stay in Brighton beach. All destinations will be revealed on the 17th April."

If you go to Barbados how long is thst for & is that flying on May bank holiday?

It's all in the FAQ's

Interesting find, OP. I'm seriously tempted. Heat from me

term say you need to have your visa in place for barbados. anyone already got that in place?
Also, can't really see the point in flying to Barbados for 4 nights.

UK nationals don't need a VISA, but some nationalities do.
And, for £49 p.p. I'd certainly go for 4 nights - had a lovely time there 2 years ago.

And for those lucky enough to go, don't wear clothes with a camouflage pattern/design (especially in the airport) as it's not permitted. Strange, but true!

Well I wouldn't go to Brighton but £98 for a 1 in 3 chance of a Barbados holiday is very good!

Barbados it is

Northern Ireland residents ineligible

Hmm but doesn't look like anything is included, what's the extras gona cost??

They're doing a separate offer here. Ballywalter for four nights in a caravan and 1 in 3 will spend the weekend in Ballymurphy

No good for me but this is class. I would imagine even if you get Brighton the hotel will be decent and 3 nightspot 98 quid is a great deal

Is Barbados as horrid as Brighton?

Yea cheers for posting this Op. My chances of being in the initial 1000 have taken a dive lol!

Am I missing something? Just buy 3 x groups of tickets and you've definitely got a trip to Barbados for £147pp

Live in Brighton but could do with a holiday to Barbados lol

Not technically true.

You may buy 3 pairs and not get a pair of tickets to Barbados but then next person may buy 3 pairs and get 2 pairs out of their 3 to Barbados.

Pot luck really. You probably need to buy 9 pairs to be guaranteed tickets.

Your be lucky to get any tickets, the phone lines will be rammed oO

Quite a clever idea, tempted to give it a go!

mollymooster

grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr


Don't vote DUP!

So do we have a phone number or details about this contest?

Barbados is one of the oldest British colonies in the Windies.Was/is part of the British Empire/Commonwealth therefore doesn't require VISA.However,read in the papers,they want to ditch Her Majesty completely so may require VISA soon.:(

I want go Barbados to show Rihanna my big umbrella (bcoz it's always raining in UK).:)

What's to stop you buying and just returning if you don't get Barbados?

Good luck to everyone attempting to get tickets today. Would you come back and let me know if you were successful? I'm living through you here!

I'm fairly sure the distance selling regulations don't apply to flights/holidays (though I stand to be corrected).

Buy now link didnt come up till 10:03. Clicked it and had a 30 seconds countdown timer while they were "checking those tickets". Repeatedly counted down from 30 to 0 then got stuck at 0 and page no longer loads. Guess missed out.
