Real Madrid or Barcelona football weekend, from £129pp, inc hotel @ dealcloud

39
Found 6th Dec 2012
Prices include two nights’ accommodation in a 3/4* ideally-located city hotel and match ticket.

Could be good as a Christmas gift, you'd need to redeem it and book it in advance though.

"See the might of Barcelona and/or the majesty of Real Madrid as they start their home 2013 La Liga campaigns" Wooooo.

£129 for a Barcelona weekend, £149 for a Real Madrid weekend. See the offer page for dates and games.

I'd love to go and watch Barcelona but when reading the small print it says a single supplement of £75 will be applied to all dates. I really hate that. Why should single people be penalized? I'd rather not go on holiday alone but don't have any choice but don't actually go because of that stupid single supplement. Sorry rant over

I agree with you there, I was annoyed when I saw that! It must be to do with the hotel, the hotel rooms they have dealed up are probably priced as a deal for twin rooms, at the upper floors of the hotel. So they need to charge that extra bit :(. Shame

flights not included, so not that good in my eyes. the games are not amazing so tickets would more than likely be cheap and easy to get anyways. plus if you make up the deal yourself, you can choose any game you like (yes paying more for a bigger match) and any hotel you like.

Granted it would probably make a nice present so i'm not voting cold. Just my opinion though so feel free to ignore me.
Not as cheap as it first appears
lol £75 slap on. Not worth it at all
not bad, but flights :s unless u go ryan air or something cheap and take basics, could be good
It's extremely hot when you consider matchday hospitality is included. Which usually starts at around 300 euros. Heat added.

Cold imo. Tickets for the first Barcelona game will be in top tier which are around £27 each,

It's £258 for 2 people for 2 nights so around £204 in total for two nights accomodation in what is a hotel you'll be able to get cheaper on the usual hotel websites.

There is no matchday hospitality. Matchday Hospitality is the name of the company, all you will get is your ticket.
Went to Madrid earlier this year and watched Athletico Madrid vs Barcelona. The cheapest ticket was £85 each so £170 for both of us plus ticket master fee. Flights were cheap enough and hotel about £100 a night so this is a good deal.

Have to be careful with flights, games and kick off times get moved from Saturday to Sunday at very short notice! I know, I got caught out!!
I am voting hot simply because the company has called themselves matchday hospitality - genius!
The company being called Matchday hospitality is very sneaky.
Yep - this needs to be made clear in the OP. There is no hospitality in with this deal - you get a match ticket and that's it.

You're not "penalised" - you're more expensive to the hotel so you have to pay more...
Barcelona tickets are Surprisingly cheap when they are not playing Real Madrid

Why is this so hot, the approx ticket price would cost €35 and you could get a cheap hotel for less than this deal, the hospitality bit is really fooling a lot of people on here

Good spot, the post has been edited to reflect this.

Have you noticed how 90% of these deals are always done by a company that seems to have set up a web page, especially for the deal, but displaying their inflated prices so that discounts can be shown on the deal page?
Hot but no one has bought it yet.....class!!!!
Ive done this for my sons christmas in Barcelona V espanyol.
Match tickets were 80 euros for two in great seats, flights £165 for both and a 4* hotel for us both for 4 nights was £140. Total £375.
Thats all in and all inclusive. I dont think this is a great deal at all. The seats will be awful and the hotels are cheap enough there.
I have been to see Real MAdrid and the match tickets were very very reasonable. Definitely not £85 each,. They were in the region of £25 and great seats. Middle tier.

agreed if only beckham still played at the bernebau could pursued the missus to Madrid, return flights where £40-65 return on easyjet a few months ago for jan2013 the airport is on the metro so quick and easy into the city, cheap food and drink.. And go queue the day before for an hour ad tickets are cheap
Cold. This can be done for so much less, all these deals are a joke.
I've been 4 times to watch Barca and I've never paid more than £100 for hotel and flights.. Tickets are depending on how you'd like to experience the match, if you just want to say you've been then go up in the gods with a beer and relax! We've picked up great seats at the corners for about £40 for those looking for a better view. Oh and do yourself a favour and don't stay all inclusive, get out and see a great city while you're there!
Hi,

Many thanks for your interest in our Deal Cloud offer.

The package unfortunately does not include matchday hospitality. This can be offered at an additional price, however at £129pp for this package for two nights and a match ticket represents incredible value. I think the confusion has arisen over the fact that the name of our main company is Matchday Hospitality and Barcleona Matchday Packages is an off shoot.

We have up to 40 tickets available for each and every Barcelona and Madrid home match although this offer is for the matches stated.

Finally, the hotels we use are allocated on redemption of the voucher. As a guide though, most of our hotels used are in the NH Group or the H10 group. Both of which are well renowned groups within Spain.

Many thanks and if you have any further queries please contact me.

Regards

Ian

Sorry, not being penalized. Just because I'm single I have to pay more is not fair. I don't cost the hotel any more or any less. It's things like this that prevent me from going on holiday. We don't all have someone to go away with

Do the maths 2 people's monies versus one persons money to the hotel
if the hotel takes £90 out of the £129 package they.ll get 2x £90 hence one person contribution is only £90
And that is why you pay a single person supplement

It's perfectly fair. Just because you have no friends who are willing to go on holiday with you, doesn't mean hotels should have to lose out financially. As someone above said, half the number of people going means the hotel gets half the amount of money. Double rooms aren't much bigger than single rooms (assuming the hotel even has single rooms) so you certainly don't cost half as much as a couple to them.

And the only thing "preventing you" from going on holiday is yourself. Millions of people go abroad on their own every year, it's really not rocket science. Either cough up the extra for a hotel room or stay in a hostel etc.

If you're so touchy that you cannot accept an explanation as to why you are wrong (absolutely nothing "unfriendly" in my post, just stating facts), then the internet isn't the place for you.

Just to clarify again, you are charged more than half the rate of a couple because you cost the hotel more than half what a couple costs them. It is not a conspiracy to stop single people going on holidays...
It's the way those facts were pointed out though, not friendly at all. To actually put in you comment that I have no friends willing to go on holiday with me is totally out of order and too personal a comment to make about someone you don't know.

And to put that the internet isn't a place for me is wrong too. I use many sites and this is the only one that I have felt belittled and insulted. So way to go if that's how you like to make people feel.

You're the one who said it... I didn't mock you for it at all (plenty of people don't have friends to go on holiday with), I merely pointed out it's not the hotels fault. And if you didn't keep refusing to accept that you weren't being penalised, I wouldn't have had to point out why your personal circumstances are different to a couple going away.

I know for a fact I haven't belittled or insulted anyone. If merely repeating what you said about not having people to go away with is "belittling" and "insulting" then you shouldn't have said it in the first place...

Callum9999 it did come across as a bit harsh..
Kell.b apologies if I have offended in my comments I was trying to get the point over. Single supplement is just and valid..

Hotel rooms are sold at a rate for two people hence the package is assuming 2 people so two incomes will go against the room, in the uk an average room is say £100 , if an offer is based on two sharing to get a nights stay with free zoo tickets for £80 each then the hotel will get 2x£50 and the zoo 2x £30 ( less commissions by the agent)
So the hotel covers its room rate, if only one person goes they only get £50, down £50 so they will want a single supplement..

I have travelled many times abroad on my own and its great the freedom no falling out with peeps, hostels are brilliant to meet people, and I.d much rather have a bunk bed than stay in 5 star hotel all over the world, as its far friendlier.
As a tip if you ever fancy going to India intrepid travel charge a single supplement,
but if there is only one female or one male (without a travelling companion) they will give you a room to yourself..
Thus saving a single supplement

Yo kell.b, sorry that you felt like that. I've removed my post with the meme picture.

Things can get quite heated on here sometimes, but HUKD is generally a helpful and friendly place :).

If you say things like it's not fair or you are being penalized, you can expect people to make their own opinion and correct you on here though, they were just explaining their view of things and didn't intend to offend you.
