Hi mate, same thing happened to me !! Did you find it easy to sort ?

Just rang their customer service line and they refunded the difference no quibble.

Cheers. I rang them on the general cs number and was fobbed off so I’ve sent them an email. Managed to press back in the browser and get screenshots luckily. Bargain though !

Good price but be prepared to spend a lot of money! Here's some comments I made on a recent deal last month to California with Thomson;

Been to California twice - 2012 and a month ago. Both times flying into SFO. You'll pay close to £100 per night throughout much of California for a reasonable but very BASIC room. If you want anything a bit nicer, count on £150+ and something nicer still £200+. In the cities or the more rural areas the prices are even more expensive. In San Francisco itself you'll pay £150+ for a reasonable (but still very basic) room. Expect to pay £250 minimum per night for a decent/nice room in a decent area.

It has got VERY expensive in the US generally, compared to what it used to be like. Been to Florida 9 times, California twice, Vegas, Miami and Washington/Virginia since 2001, and compared to our earlier trips, things are very pricey.

Examples: When we were there a month ago (September 2017), here are some prices of things we saw in Walmart (cheap supermarket - you won't generally get cheaper than Walmart);

Average loaf of bread - $3.50 (£2.80)
Gallon of milk (3.5lts - US Gallon) - $3+ (£2.50+)
Tub of Ice cream - $5 (£4 - for what we'd pay £2 or less for).
Box of 4 chocolate/blueberry muffins (the same type you'd get here in Tesco, Sainsburys, Asda etc.) - $4 to $5 (£3.20 to £4)
Family bag of crisps (one big bag) - $4 to $5 (£3.20 to £4)
Carton of Orange juice - $4+ (£3.20+)
Fruit - Really expensive - they grow it locally FFS!
Small bag of chocolate M&Ms - $5 (£4 - we'd pay about £1.50 for same size bag)

I could go on - check the prices of stuff online at Walmart or Target and you'll see how ridiculously expensive it has got. The worse thing was a platter of fresh fruit I saw. It was a domed platter about 12" across and about 8" high - freshly prepared fruit such as pineapple, orange, melon, grapefruit etc. Yes it looked very nice, but $20!! Jeepers, that's £16!!! We'd probably pay £5 or so for something like that here. AND THEY GROW ALL OF THOSE FRUITS IN CALIFORNIA!!! Don't forget that all these prices are NOT including sales tax at 12%!!

Eating out in restaurants? Look to pay $40 (£32) each for a reasonable 3 course meal in a run of the mill restaurant. A nicer restaurant - make that $60 each (£48). Plus tip of course of 20%. We got a KFC family bucket plus some other sides for $35 (£28) - you'd pay less than £20 here for the same. Burgers (McDonalds/Burgerking) - about the same as you'd pay here.

Fizzy drinks - a little more than you'd pay here for a bottle in a shop (like a 2 litre bottle of coke would cost you £2 to $2.50 - about £1.60 to £2), but a little bit cheaper than here in a petrol station/burger bar.

Alcohol - in bars/restaurants, a bit more than here but not massively more. Alcohol in shops - spirits probably 20-30% cheaper than here. Remember though, all of these prices need to be increased by 12% for sales tax.

The car hire was almost £600 for a mid size saloon for 2 weeks. Even a small economy car was almost £400 for 2 weeks. (Hertz/Alamo - both about the same), although we didn't book it until just a few days before so that probably drove up the price.

Seriously, almost everything is expensive in California (it was the same in Washington/Virginia in June this year). Some things were cheaper, such as cigarettes (about $4.50 upwards - about £3.60+) and petrol was around $3 (£2.40) per US gallon (3.5 litres instead of our 4.5 litres to a gallon) so it actually works out to be about 70p a litre - compared to our £1.15 here.

The US generally has got very expensive. If you're a smoker, you'll pay £12 to £15 per packet of cigarettes in New York! They actually have a major smuggling problem with people trafficking cigarettes from other nearby states (such as Virginia) by the truckload - they cost about $4 per pack in Virginia. Easy money for those that do this and almost impossible to stop.

And this time in California we came across far too many rude and arrogant yanks - no idea why but we experienced some incredibly rude hotel and shop staff! The one thing that came up almost every time we spoke to a yank was.........................................Trump! Everybody we spoke to hated him - they often began hyperventilating even talking about him (I suppose it should be expected as it's a heavily 'liberal' democratic state), with one elderly woman, who up until the point she brought him up, was so lovely and sweet - as soon as we got onto Trump, she was spitting feathers and eventually refused to talk about him any more and then walked away! Now WE didn't bring him up, they did - they wanted to know what a foreigner thought about him. The ONLY person that actually liked Trump was a copper at the Golden Gate bridge - I'm sure that tells you something.

Anyway, California is a great place to visit, with amazing scenery (this time we travelled almost 3,000 miles in 11 days) BUT it is very expensive and the people do seem to have an attitude.EditPhila423rd Oct

Big Sur is sadly not open to visit at the moment. The pacific highway has suffered two pretty devastating landslide/rock falls in the last year meaning it has been closed for a significant length of the road. One bridge was totally destroyed and whilst they are trying to build a new one, it is not certain the road will EVER reopen. You can only drive so far before you have to turn round and go back. We tried to do this trek again a month ago and were pretty miffed. Although we went as far as we could, we had to turn back and all in all we travelled around 200 miles to get to the part closed, turn round and then take the main motorway down to pick up the road on the other side of the closure. I'm not sure how much of the highway 1 is closed but I think it's somewhere between 20 and 50 miles.

On this deal though, if the price is correct then it's a great deal. If you're prepared to spend a lot of money when there then go for it - California is great. I would however check out the seat pitch - we travelled upper class (wife works for an airline so a perk!) so it was nice (but still pretty tedious), but travelling for 11 hours in a small seat - no way would I personally do it!

Thankfully I’m lucky, stay away two nights per week with work so have enough IHG (Holiday Inn, Crowne Plaza owners) points to fund a week of stays !

Will get saving the pennies for everything else though..

Air BnB is significantly cheaper. Wish we'd of booked through them this year. In most cases you avoid hefty 'resort Fees' which hotels arbitrarily add to your booking, which is not included in booking price, neither is tax. This can add a significant chunk to your outlay

yeah...booked flights missed out on the £99 return portion so cost us £200 more but still cheap for Oct direct flights thanks
