Not to flame the fire but...... Holiday Pirates is actually amazing!

I have booked 2 deals in the last year to amazing destinations one through BA and one through KLM. Both deals are cheaper than the taxes I would have paid if I had used avios- in fact the latest deal gives me 60K in avios on top of a price cheaper than taxes!

It is a brill addition to HUKD as about 3 years ago I got NY for £154 and Florida for £187 both on HUKD but not much since so basically Holiday pirates are finding deals/glitches on travel and alerting us -one very grateful person here as I have 5 or 6 to pay for.

The biggest problem is the deals are just too amazing-it would be so tempting to book just one more and moe more....

I don't get it!!


They aren't promoting their own deal. The flights are with Kuwait Airways. The link to the deal is provided by a deal-finder website called HolidayPirates. You don't even book through them: you can book through Netflights, Opodo or Expedia.

"They aren't promoting their own deal"....but they are certainly promoting their own company. IMO they really should dump the name. The word 'pirates' is never going to do them any favors.
Booked this about an hour ago before i'd seen this post. Tis indeed a great price. I've been hanging on for weeks for a cheap flight & was sulking yesterday as i thought i wouldn't be able to fulfil my dream on going to NYC for my 40th. I paid £306.86 Just got to fill out my ESTA & find cheap accom now. Can anyone tell me of the cheapest(non dirty/bug infested) place to stay for a single person please. Also advice on tranfers from JFK would be much appreciated. Dreamed of visiting New York since i was 10 & am SO excited to finally be going for my 40th

Not sure on accommodation for single people but the cheapest way to get from JFK to central new york is to get the air train to jamaica station, then get the subway to wherever you are staying. Costs $5 for the airtrain plus the cost of the subway fare, we were there for a week so got the unlimited 7 day pass, excellent value.

Unsure on Hotels - (Probably west side would be cheaper)

but HI (hostel International?) New York is rather cheap and highly recommended.
Wow, thanks for your help & advice everyone! What a fab site. Just looking on Trivago at the moment but will check all your suggestions next. What a fab deal for the Airtrain, will go for that thank you
Another question, hope you don't mind. For those of you who have been lucky enough to visit NYC before, can you tell me if i bought the 3 day New York pass would i be able to get round all of the most popular attractions or would i be better getting a 7 day pass. Ideally i would like a trip to woodbury common 1 day & will be shopping in between seeing the sights as well. Don't want to fork out for a 7 day pass if i could see it all in 3 days. Thanks again.
I have flown with KA a few times now, they have 1 very tired looking 777 but good value and not an issue if you don't want in flight entertainment (50% TV's don't work) and you won't get a hangover on the flight as its as dry as the desert!
They get into JFK at a time when not many other flights get in so very short lines for immigration, it will take longer for your bags to get out than immigration usually.

Oh get over yourselves you silly bunch of whiners, I'm not going to go … Oh get over yourselves you silly bunch of whiners, I'm not going to go clicking all those damn buttons on the off-chance that there MIGHT be actual seats at that price. Better a thousand genuine deals are incorrectly accused of being spam, than one spam gets through. Deal with it!

I actually think a lot of people are being overly harsh on you here.

The 'and up' part is a little bit 'stupid' if you want to use that term that others have - but the believing it was self-promotion I see no blame in.

It isn't listed in the footer of this website under HUKD Network and neither is there any mention of HUKD in the footer or anywhere from a quick glance on HolidayPirates.com that they're affiliated.

And indeed I think it is a lame rule. It is OK that just because someone is part of a network that they can bend the rules.

A deal is a deal is a deal no matter the website or poster - the voting system will quickly demote any lame self-promo and if it is a self-promo but an amazing genuine deal - who cares?

But they want maximum moolar - and you can't say fairer than that.

I can't answer that question specifically as I've never been to New York (it's on my Bucket List though). I've just had a look and I'm not sure if you're aware but you can buy different types of passes to the attractions. The New York Explorer Pass, for example, allows you to choose the number of attractions that you want to see. You don't have to choose which ones, you just turn up when you fancy seeing an attraction and they take a coupon away. You can buy 3, 5, 7 or 10 attractions and it's valid for 30 days, so that means you won't have to rush about and you can shop at your own leisure. 10 attractions is $178.49 compared to a 7 day pass which is $230. It just depends how many attractions you're going to be visiting.

Here's the link explaining the different passes:

GREAT Deal!! Even if it's 20 or 30£ more than advertised...you cannot complain that much for this price! direct flight on usual hours...

I know lots of people who love NYC. I went, and was a bit "meh" about the whole place.
Had a feeling like I dunno, the bottom end of Tottenham Court Road. Starbucks every other doorway, and tatty Electrical Shops.
McDonalds and yellow cabs.
I did the whole Empire State, Statue of Liberty walk thing etc. Which is probably mandatory. But I didn't discover the so called great "adult" night life (they tend to be circa 30 and upward at bars in NYC rather than 11-17 yr olds like our drinking establishments) so great for more mature persons.
I though the food everywhere we ate was basic. Ramsey had nothing to fear.
But don't let me put you off, I think I am saying do lots of research before you go to get the most out of it or you might come back slightly miffed about it. Whereas Paris you can't help fall over cute cafes / restaurants, unusual people and things and can't fail to have a great time. Paris and London are awesome (the best 2 cities so far for me). Followed by Madrid and Barcelona. Lisbon next for me
Hope you enjoy it!

A City, a town or village is what you make it..............NYC is epic if you actually bother yourself to spend an hour researching before you go. Absolutely laughable attempt at trying to trash one of the best cities on the planet.

Rubbish airline, probably the worst... ever. Check out the reviews … Rubbish airline, probably the worst... ever. Check out the reviews before booking!



Agree!
One of the worst airlines I have been on.
Service non existant, TV screens/headphones usually dont work, Food bland/scarce etc
Also as Kuwait is a strict islamic country, dont expect any booze in flight.
If you are on a budget and are not bothered about the airline experience, then this airline is perfect for you.
Haha I saw the £31 and thought thats a hotukdeal then i fell back down to earth with a bang :-)

I've been to nyc twice and love it, both times were completely different, as for the nightlife rooftop bars surrounded by skyscrapers is very cool and i can see why they are frequented by over 30's as the drinks were $15 each but on the other hand we found cool little bars that were alot cheaper than england. I prefere new york to london people i've met there are a lot friendlier and you feel safer at night in my op
I agree with other comments that NYC is just not that good. London completely wipes the floor with NYC, there's no comparison. There is no savings to be had when shopping there anymore, the food is abysmal (try finding a decent pizza), many places close by 9pm, and the whole city is full of so many different types of people (spanish to arab) that it doesn't really feel American. Its also just buildings and skyscrapers, there no real history and theres also no horizon. You wander around engulfed by towering skyscrapers and it begins to feel boring very quickly.

However @Donna180473 the best place I stayed at was the Grand Hyatt. Its moderately priced and is situated right in the middle of everything and has an amazing lobby.

Try Hotwire.com. I booked with them, got 4 nights for two of us in the four star Sheraton hotel for £300, just off Time Square I believe.
To David.....any good deals from London to Tokyo you can offer?
I did the Alitalia deal for 184 quid! Ok - I had to go to Venice first which was awesome and then fly back via Rome - but who gives a **** - go and enjoy yourself! If you're doing it on a budget stay in HI Hostel on the upper west side - can't recommend it enough!!!
PS Just go to the Lower East Side of great bars, great band and great food!

Hiya - I was there exactly a month ago and sat on the fence - did 3 nights in a hostel - Hi International upper west side - one night luxury - affinia dumont midtown - and one night budget hotel - hotel 17 - lower mid town. I would have traded the luxury for another night at the hostel - so many opportunities to meet great people. The whole experience changed my life and I'm sure you will have a great time! Let me know if you need any advice - have a great time!!!

Bit harsh mate. I did say in my own comment to research before you go. I did go to skyscraper restaurants, bars, went to see Les Miserables. Times Square is cool as its iconic. But if you read Cubed's comments above mine, he sorta agrees with me.
I am encouraging the lady to research to get the most out of it, which goes for most cities.
London has a much clearer identity, much better for going out, some real "hot spots" like Piccadilly etc. Where is the equivalent in NYC? As I never found it We have a much richer history, more pageantry and more things to see.
The best NY could muster for me was a Pony and Trap ride about Central Park which is basically not that interesting.
But if there is a list of great things to see, and do, please list them - you might convince me to give it another go! and help the lady who is going. I am in no rush to go back as it stands.

you could fly through some cities in Ireland - lot of people do this using Aer Lingus

London is hideous, one of the worst places I've ever visited, unfortunately I've had to visit a number of times and I will never return unless I'm forced to. I'd rather holiday in Birmingham.
Sometimes cheaper and always more convenient to fly either via Dublin or Shannon.

I'd recommend going via Dublin if going to the USA. I went with a few … I'd recommend going via Dublin if going to the USA. I went with a few friends at Christmas with Aer Lingus and because of an agreement the US has with Ireland when you board the flight it is effectively a US internal flight so no hanging about at the other end. Much rather spend an hour (at most) having to change than a few hours trying to clear US immigration!



Really? What about air passenger duty?

It annoys me that its so much from the UK. I'd heard that NI its cheaper - not sure about republic....
Hahahahahaha, NY doesn't have good pizza? ::wipes a tear:: NY is pizza. British pizza is so poor, I have to believe that was trolling.

Donna, take the ferry to Staten Island from Battery Park - it's free and you get to see the bridges, the Statute of liberty, and Ellis Island. Go to Koreatown, which is just one block off of Broadway, around 33rd/34th and have mandoo (dumplings) or BBQ. Visit Times Square and see the crazy bright shops, like the M&M shop. Go into a deli and get a Reuben (sandwich which is pastrami, emmental, sauerkraut, and thousand island dressing). Walk the Highline, which is a former elevated train line converted into a promenade with urban gardening and landscaping.

Visit Hell's Kitchen and have brunch at Eatery. Wander around Eataly - an enormous department store with 5 mini restaurants, all devoted to Italian cooking and food. People watch in the plaza at Lincoln Center. Hop the subway to a neighbourhood with brownstones and try seeing celebrities - many walk their dogs around Central Park West and the high 80s cross streets ;-) visit Union Square and watch people performing or join in with the free group tango that sometimes occurs.

There is so much to see and do. America IS a lot of different ethnic heritages, so revel in it :-)

Well I don't think there was much difference there as I went from BHX to DUB then on to JFK so I would only imagine that air passenger duty is paid on the UK leg of the flight at the higher rate.

It's a bit of a faf but it saved us loads of time when going to the states, took about 10 mins if that to go through US customs in Dublin so can't complain really. Adding it all up it worked out that you saved about half hour going via Heathrow direct compared to having the 1 hour stop in Dublin from Birmingham and saved a few hundred quid as well!
WBRacing

This'll have to do.



I reckon its a time to call in the team on this one:
