great spot op

Possibley too late to do an ESTA (visa waiver), which must be done 72 hours or more before departure. Would be okay if you already have registered within the last couple of years though.

Holy Hell what a deal!

Esta can clear as soon as you input your details (mine did). I'd suggest doing the ESTA first and then booking the flight though as I have heard of delays in clearance.

Brilliant price. Hope i can get a similar deal in September :thumbsup:

Absolute bargain!!!

great price, just this week found one for 420 in october, which was the best by miles!

Superb price yet again by the OP :thumbsup:

No good to me though as i've just got back from my Hols hope there is a similar price around in November as i'm looking at going then.

Cracking deal though!

I would never book a flight with Thomson.

We bought a flight from them in February to fly to Montenegro. They wrote to us in May to say they had decided they no longer wanted to fly to Montengro. They offered us an "alternative" flight to a different country, on a different day!

Refused to compensate us for lost deposit et.c.

about 2 years ago they started to introduce it, from Jan this year it was mandatory, later this year the green forms go completely

excellent deal pity cant go away just now x

Before booking check which aircraft you are on.
Some only have 28" of legroom. Just about bearable for a 3 hour flight but not for 10hrs

Moments like this make applying for dual citizenship worth it

Great price, ESTA is done instantly so don't have to do anything, you can do it as you wait to board plane even, needs minimal information passport number, address where staying etc and approved in seconds, don't even need to print anything or take anything with you

AFAIK all Thomson longhaul flights have 33" pitch in economy with seat back TV. It's Thomas Cook which varies, depending on the aircraft allocated to the flight.

Also remember to add £30 for 20kg luggage allowance - still a cracking deal though.

Similar deals are often available with such short notice before departure outside of school holidays. Remember, possible ticket on departure charges, additional luggage charges and cost of car hire and accomodation in Florida. IMO certainly a good deal but not practical for most with jobs or kids in school.

Great Deal

You're talking rubbish mate - read the Thomson T&C's - if there is a "significant" change, eg a change to the planned departure time of more than 12 hours, you are entitled to a full refund, no questions asked and certainly no loss of deposit.

No doubt you work for an alternative airline/tour operator and are just trying to scaremonger!

No they're not - they were 3 or 4 years ago but flights to Florida now are rarely under £250pp, at any time of year. Also who cares if its not practical for some people (its their choice to have kids), there are still plenty of people who can take advantage of the deal.

:thumbsup::thumbsup:

They had a similar deal alst year that i booked. Flights were actually really good, very comfortable. Only paid for 1x luggage and carried hand luggage, but on way back booked in two pieces and only paid for the one. Only downside is travel from Sandford to i drive which was around $50-60. Booked a hotel through priceline stayed at four points hotel for alot cheaper around £300 for two weeks, and got tickets to universal for two weeks for all in under a grand for two people. It was very hot but very quiet at the parks.

Fantastic price ....

I feel ill

:thumbsup: What a deal...You have to go at that price

Don't know what Thomson are like for flights/planes/cabin crew insolence etc but this looks a good deal, just wish we were in the market for a holiday the the moment. Plus Sanford is a smaller and easier/quicker airport to get through than Orlando International, from what I remember.

Thomson are the best airline i've been on, saying that, I've only been around Europe, so I'm not aware of how Virgin/Emirates are etc.

Thats a little harsh my friend .... particularly without knowing all the facts.

It is probable that Thomson offered a full refund in this case if the customer declined to take up another alternative flight that was offered, as per their t&c's.

However , if the customer lost deposits on independently booked hotels/ accomodation/carhire or whatever then I am pretty sure that they would not compensate for the loss of these deposits.

The person quite clearly stated that Thomson would not compensate them for loss of deposits, he did not say that they wouldnt refund his money for the flights which is how you interpreted it.

Its always best to get the full picture before lashing out , dont you think ? :thumbsup:

Thompson have a flight next Saturday for under £200 from Gatwick and that's a good deal too. My point, not a criticism of the original deal, was that most people with jobs (which most of us probably do) and/or kids in school (which a lot do) would struggle with the short departure date. In addition, the headline figure won't include some additional expenses. I was just trying to be practical.:whistling:

There are a few people self employed who can take time out when they choose.

It may not be suitable for everyone, but if someone posted a dildo, it wouldn't suit me....

You get the picture?

Great post, Keep them coming. I'd have taken this one with 2 days notice if I hadn't already given somebody the week off !!! GGrrrrhhhh
