Wow, never spent that much on a holiday in my life!!


Should try taking kids to USA in summer break, flights alone from Manchester usually come in over 3k, you can quite easily be 7k by the time you are done. This one is cheap.

Never pre buy the park tickets,14 days of theme parks is a hell of an ordeal and huge upfront cost plus you don't save much. Only need a kid to catch too much sun etc and have a day away your losing money. Much prefer to arrive and then decide on the itinery depending on weather etc,2 days of parks then a few days local shopping or trips etc then some more parks One year we broke upthe fortnight up by driving down to Clearwater for a few days-you can only do that if you haven't invested £2500in tickets you got to use.

Great deal this..... Just a shame not from any London airport..... Do I book and set up a price alert with kayak and hope the flight prices drop

Went last year and it was surprisingly still quite warm, hovering around 25 degrees, although the pools were quite cool.

Stayed at the Viva Sunrise right near to the Siesta ones, highly recommended. It was quiet, but I preferred it that way.

Can also recommend "The Bridge" bar for cheap meals and drinks. Most places will be closing on the last weekend in October but during the week I think a lot of places will still be open.

Just don't forget the mozzie spray if you go.

remember weather and resort will be closing, I have daughter in Ibiza now been there since may and she went off to Ibiza down to buy a coat, she said its getting cold, weather varies one day to next, Saying that its a cracking price, I would look for a hotel to stay in good prices to be had and stay HB

Thanks for letting us know - we'd been wondering!

Ironically, you're better off staying in the far north of the UK to see the lights. We have the advantage of better weather. Iceland is in an awful position mid Atlantic.

Personally I wouldn't visit there in November /December as the days are just to short to enjoy the absolutely stunning scenery.

I know this may not be helpful for this season, but we hired a motorhome with Airbnb. It doubled up as our transport and accommodation and was comfortable, had shower, toilet, heating, fridge, freezer, hob and all utensils which allowed us to cook meals. We also took around 2kg each of food into Iceland as we had hold luggage (there is a maximum limit). I think we paid around £2100 for two weeks (it was our wedding and honeymoon) but we saved such a lot by cooking our own meals and would have had to pay for a car in addition to accommodation otherwise.

We were able to do omelette for breakfast, along with the lovely Skyr yoghurt, pasta dishes and also bought meat we could freeze and some tinned fruit and veg from home as fresh fruit and veg is expensive. This may be helpful for anyone going in summer.

Been to this part of Croatia. Not much to see or do, it's quite bleak.

Much better down in the south around Makarska or Dubrovnik (King's Landing from GoT).
Be aware that you have to drive through Bosnia for about an hour or so if you want to visit Dubrovnik.

So you'll be driving through a EU to Non-EU border, and vice-versa, it's a hell of a drive from the north!
I actually, stupidly, forgot my passport when I made this journey and didn't have my driving license either, they gave me a telling off at the border, but they still let me through and back again (thank god).

(Bosnia kind of cuts a chunk of Croatia off from the rest of it).

would love to go here or anywhere abroad for Xmas cos I hate it . . but would it be unfair to leave the kids home alone . . . comments please . . .

You won't get much sunshine in the north of Tenerife in the winter.
Temperatures will therefore be lower. And it tends to be quite windy.
There's probably enough exploring to be done in Tenerife for a week. If you're ok to drive to the beach for the rest of your stay then this is good value.

The North is actually only a couple of degrees cooler but cloudier. Certainly much more than 14. More like 20 celcius.

I'm guessing here, but does Tenerife have higher Winter temperatures, than Glasgow in the Summer?

Puerta de la cruz, 14 degrees average in december.
nice to rent a car and spend the 2 weeks exploring the island though.

Yes Airbnb is an option definitely. The accommodation in Stavanger does have kitchen facilities that are shared and the Bergen accommodation does also have cooking facilities in the room. I'm not sure exactly what these are but it should help reduce costs of eating out.

Worth bearing in mind that food and drink in Norway is very expensive. An Airbnb might be more expensive, but if it has a kitchen you can make savings by making your own breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Possibly not everyone's cup of tea, but just had a quick look on AirBnb and look to be some quite nice places for cheaper than listed above in Stavanger

Its amazing isn't it. I did it on a cruise but luckily (or unluckily depending on your viewpoint) we ended up in Norway for additional nights at the stops in Scotland and the Shetland Islands were cancelled due to bad weather, we did all DIY excursions in Norway and had some amazing good weather. I think you can visit Flam railway from Bergen too so that's well worth a trip. It was a few years now but we paid £299pp on a week cruise from Liverpool, a rare bargain find as I've never seen cruises to the Norwegian fjords this cheap since. Its a beautiful country.

norway in a nutshell, coach, trains and boat is well worth the trip from bergen.

Didn't do Verona at all really, as we ran out of time, so another day maybe.For what it's worth we stayed at Meublè AdrianaVicolo Strentelle 21, Sirmione, BS, 25019, Italy, 0203 027 9779 ( from £76 currently on Hotels.com) which is in the centre of Sirmione with a view landward to the Castle from the roof terrace. Basic , but puts you in easy walking of the many resturants in Sirmione. Sirmione is bottom centre of Lake Garda so the other places can be reached by the ferries from there too. I'd second getting the train into Venice too, so easy. We actually had a hire car via BA which gave us 'free' days' so we ended up parking it in a secured car park in Verona near to the station, so not so 'free' afterall. We booked the train via the Trenitalia web site, which was in English.As for Venice, come out of the station and to the right on the canal is a ferry booth, where you can get a ferry pass for x number of hours/days. This makes the ferry service so much easier and cheaper to do.We stayed at Hotel Al Codega (Double £145+) which i can recommend, it was ideally centred near to St Marks etc. A bit pricy for some maybe, but we won't be going back anyday soon i'm afraid :-(

If you cannot get invitation from your accomodation then use a web invite from someone like; realrussia.co.uk/Vis…ist £15.

Visa cost approx £95 including courier return of passport. You will need to visit London or Edinburgh for biometric fingerprints to be recorded. Straightforward process, fill form in on line.
Return flights to St.P with BA vary in price depending on time of year but convenient. You can look at Air Baltic through Riga, sometimes a deal. Fly Helsinki then high speed train to St.P is not a bad option. Contrary to comments on here, Helsinki flights can be quite economical, look at Norwegian out of Gatwick if BA/Finnair not offering a deal. Of course as usual holiday time fares are inflated !! St.P well worth a visit, lots to do and see, Faberge egg museum now a "must see". Easy to get around, English spoken in most places and street/metro signs/names in both Cyrillic and Roman script. Great shopping centre with well known stores from all of Europe there, but not cheap ! Great choice of eating from McDonalds upward. Don't be afraid of Georgian Ukranian, Russian etc food, you can always find something to like on the menu and many have menus in English if you ask.

That is true. I went to Berlin solo just a couple months ago. You may be able to find a hotel for 2 nights a bit cheaper. Don't worry if it's far out of the centre, as long as it's near a ubahn sbahn or tram station the public transport is very easy to use to get around. And you can keep spending to a minimum as there is so much to do for free and lots of street food as well as the usual fast food (McDonald's etc) available. Supermarket freshly made rolls with meat and salad filling only 2 euros for breakfast.

Maybe bump into Mr Bourne?

Enjoy a rally at the nearby Berlin Sportpalast?

Cheap public transport into the city, just follow the crowd.

I would check your understanding ....I was on a cruise ship that stopped …I would check your understanding ....I was on a cruise ship that stopped for one night...and we had to pay the visa ...and you had to pay for the visa even if you stayed on the ship and didn't set foot in china.

​China visa waiver is quite complicated. It depends on where you are actually going to within China on whether you get the visa waiver as it is only applicable at some airports/ports. I never made use of the visa waiver as I went to China for 3 weeks but I planned my friends visit to Thailand and booked her flights so she had two and a half days in Beijing, with the visa waiver.

I did find this info on visas for cruises which is interesting.

China

No visa is necessary for Sanya (on Hainan Island) as long as you join an organised excursion.

Foreign tourists arriving in Shanghai on a cruise are now allowed up to 15 days of visa-free stays in the city. Passengers must be travelling on tour groups arranged by travel agencies that are registered in China and the companies must submit the details of their groups to inspection authorities at least 24 hours before the ships arrive in Shanghai to be eligible.

The cruise passengers may remain in Shanghai or travel to Beijing, the northeastern port city of Tianjin, as well as coastal provinces where ships often berth, including Liaoning, Hebei, Shandong, Jiangsu, Zhejiang, Fujian, Guangdong, Hainan and Guangxi.

It's my understanding that you won't need a visa. As you are continuing … It's my understanding that you won't need a visa. As you are continuing your journey you'll get a free a visa waiver programme that allows you to stay for 72 hours visa free.

You could get direct BA flights from London to Bangkok for £463pp return 27th Nov - 13th December, then pick up the hotels from the post, overall cost would not be very different, makes more sense to me

​Indeed, but for some a couple of days in China would appeal for some sightseeing. I'd go back to China in a heartbeat. You can get indirect flights (without a couple of days in China for around £340). If your aim is to just get to Thailand in the quickest time possible then paying an extra £100pp or so would probably appeal.
