Had a look on there earlier, and some of the prices don't appear to have shot up massively on Hotel + Flight packages.... only £100 - 300 ish dependant on flights/hotels.

Obviously not as cheap as they were, but perhaps still a decent price for some.

Not for the dates above though.....doesn't appear to matter what dates you book ....it's still discounted !

I booked later this year.

See you at the intercontinental!

Probably gonna book this today/tomorrow before the offer ends. As mentioned above, Expedia require the full cost payable at booking, whereas BA can be secured with £300 deposit.

Got it to an average of £2200 with selecting flights to Newark with decent enough times (we have to change at Heathrow each way), and adding in a return transfer service to/from the airport to Manhatten.

Just got to decide on the hotel now, but looking like it will be the RIU Plaza or Intercontinental, both near Times Sq.

Wife has been on for ages about going to NYC, and son is also excited at prospect of doing some shopping.

I understand it will be cold in February, but it'll make a change to experience a bit of winter for once, as we dont really get them in the UK anymore!!


EDIT:

Well, thats it booked!!!

Staying at the Intercontinental Times Sq, flying to/from JFK airport. Price cam in a shade over £2100 for the 3 of us, which isn't too bad.

Missus is mega excited now (brownie points), and son is already planning which shops he wants to go to!!

Er, No.
Due to its location in the Caribbean Sea, Barbados is fortunate to not experience hurricanes in the last who knows how many decades,which have devastated other Caribbean islands and parts of the US.
Instead they experience tropical storms (quite scary heavy winds, rough seas) which clips the island as it travels further up the Caribbean then turns into a hurricane (for their Caribbean neighbours & US).

I would love to go at this price however prepping the minion for upcoming GCSEs.
Should be a criminal offence the prices the travel industry is allowed to charge during school holidays!! oO

Grow up.

Moving British IT jobs offshore and expect people to fly with them after recent infrastructure disasters...? Reputational damage and public have no confidence in the company or brand. Classic example of putting corporate greedy cost saving instead of putting customer first which has back fired.

Fights to Belfast and Newcastle! This is a steal. I love Belfast. Best city in the world.

Of course they say it's nothing to do with the fact they laid off 700 … Of course they say it's nothing to do with the fact they laid off 700 workers last year and shifted the jobs to India. Similar thing happened with Natwest a couple of years ago after a massive job shift to India!



Of course the unions and socialists would suggest it must be entirely down to that. Every time anything goes wrong it must be down to outsourcing offshore. If there hasn't been outsourcing it's down to management and cost cutting. Tram driver falls asleep at the controls and its the managements fault because drivers are too scared to come forward.

Since you appear to have such knowledge in the area, perhaps you could clear something up. The issue occurred due to a UK contractor(s) switching the power off (isolating the equipment from both main and backup supply). Then that same UK contractor(s) failed to follow the power restoration procedure, causing massive corruption to the system. In the first instance how was that the fault of the Indians? In fact that was the fault of the staff they hadn't shifted to India!

Secondly, did the Indians design and build a brand new system last year? Or did they take on the management of the existing infra-stucture? I'm sure someone as knowledgeable as yourself would know a system of this scale is rarely delivered in a year? In other words it's likely the system was actually designed and built by the UK workers. And its the system design that was at fault not the support staff. Switching on power failure and recovering when power is restored are largely automated processes. Neither the original UK or replacement Indian support staff would have had any input in the issue. Their job would have been afterwards in recovering the system, which on a large complex DB is not a trivial task.

NB: Although its harsh to even blame the system architects given how the fault occurred. Isolating power and then putting it back on without following restart procedures is generally a BIG NO NO!

For all the other times, to me, a flight is a flight is a flight. I close my eyes and it's over. Flying is like taking the bus, from point A to B. I will take the cheapest bus that gets me there safely and on time, and that's the end of it. If you're talking about economy class, the only things they give you are a packet of peanuts, meal that usually tastes worse than a ready meal, and tiny drinks (which, if you aren't one of those awful seat-mates who gets drunk on miniatures and then acts like the flight is their private club, are worth pennies). I don't really see why it's worth paying any extra for that when you might as well bring on a meal deal.

Depends which countries. I booked BA Fly/Dive deal to Vienna. Called Avis first sharing my planned itinerary and they said it was ok to take the car outside Austria. Then I later discovered you needed to pay for extended insurance for some countries (mainly Eastern Europe and the newer accession states). Fortunately they agreed to refund the additional premium as it was their mistake.

Worth calling and telling them where you plan to take the car and making a note of who you spoke to and when. In my case the manager went back and listened to the call before agreeing to refund the additional charge. From memory it was £15/day for the countries not covered, capped to a maximum of £75.

I'm glad you posted this deal.I nearly posted it earlier in the week but didn't have time. A week ago, it was even cheaper. I paid £568 for two adults and three children going out on the 22nd July and coming back on the 5th August to Brindisi with Plus. That is £836.20 now. That said, when I booked BA, Easyjet wanted just under £1500 with baggage and tax and Ryanair wanted a staggering £1980! And the flight times were awful.

If you're going out as a couple, I recommend Hertz for car hire because if you join Hertz Gold Club you can add a second driver who lives at the same address as you for free. This saves about £100 on a fortnight booking. Pay by Mastercard using the Mastercard code and you can save another ten per cent, and there is cashback available too. We're paying about £325 after the cashback (which tracked) for a large automatic estate (Opel Insignia or equivalent) for the two weeks.

There are some very nice villas and hotels around. Plenty of availability.

Babies can't clear their ears, they also don't understand why they are … Babies can't clear their ears, they also don't understand why they are forced to stay in one place for upwards of 10 hours (as per your HK flight). It must've been awful for you, an adult so ignorant to anyone else to have had to listen to a baby in pain. Poor you. Genuinely.



​taking a baby on a 10+ hour flight is a completely selfish act by the parents. it's not as if the baby can appreciate different cultures. at least wait until they've become sentient beings. Failing that then a sedative would've sufficed or leaving it at home with it's grandparents. if anyone's ignorant then it's the parents of this brat or your vain attempts at trolling.
BTW, voted cold

Who on here would be willing to pay a premium for an adults only flight?



To be honest many adults turn into children the minute they enter an airport, so i'm dubious of the value of such a proposition Moreover, given Ryan Air deals are so popular on here, I would surmise that many on here are prepared to tolerate a hell of a lot to save a few £'s

Little things that people do at airports really surprise and annoy me For example crowding around the luggage conveyer. Just step back a few feet for gods sake, its not going anywhere fast. Instead everyone stands right against the belt, meaning far fewer people can see if their luggage is coming and when it does you need to be a contortionist to be able to get it.

Calm down everyone. I'm sure given the choice we'd all rather avoid being stuck for hours in a confined space with a child(ren) screaming at the top of their lungs.

I recall last year I was on a flight and shortly after take off a baby girl started crying. Unfortunately there was a bit of turbulence so the seat belt signs remained on for 45 mins, so no one could get up including the parents to try and calm her down. Worse still after 20 mins of this she set off all the other children in the flight. It was like a chorus of screams going down the cabin.

How I wished I was on a different flight Unfortunately that wasn't an option as she was my baby. My wife and I felt like dying of embarrassment.

I think we all find screaming babies and tantrum children a less than pleasant situation, especially in a confined space and of course its your choice when you travel, but do your comments really add any value, do u get frustrated with the dithery OAP at the checkout too ? One thing for sure is we have all been there as a baby/child ourself and made someone's ears ring, and most of us want to be that dithering OAP living in the community. With respect I find your comments a reflection of you as a person



​Dear me, we live in a society were everyone gets on their high horse over a light hearted comment - it was hardly the most offensive comment in the world. Did my comment add any value - of course not, just like 99% of the comments on HUKD. And finally, no offence taken, if you wish to judge people based on a 2 sentence comment then that is your look out. Have a good weekend, and please, lighten up.
