Yes the children need to be in school for the first day of a new term.
The reason I didn't book myself.
Any good in Maldives?? Preferably Niyama Thanks
1 bedroom is ok for 4 but you cannot really miss the start of a new term that's the deal breaker for most people i expect.
News similar for family of 6 lol
Just get a clarity card, starling bank, revolut or monzo card and withdraw when you land. I have always withdrawn currency that way when abroad. Just brush up on what the local bank atm looks like and its fee free. Avoid euro bank ones at all costs. If you used a revolut card to exchange £350 right now you would get an extra £9 compared to Thomas cook.
Last time I wanted some Euro (earlier this year) Cash Converters had a better rate than TC !
I always find Eurochange have pretty good rates. But I have started to use my Halifax Clarity Card and just draw cash out while abroad. Pay it off the card using the app as soon as it shows up.
Don't be silly (lol)
John lewis never beat any of those bureau de change rates but still not a bad rate going by what we are getting now i had 1.14 not long ago and of course the rates change daily
Only one room left? Good luck :)
El SombreroSpain, Canary Islands, Tenerife, Los Gigantes
what is the accomodation sorry?
Great to see a deal from Cardiff
We went on a family holiday to Magaluf in April. Stayed in a 4* family hotel right at the end away from everything. Had a great time. I'd go again. Couldn't find this deal though.
I think anyone with at least 1 brain cell wouldn't take there kids to magaluf. Especially this time of year.
no flight from man on 23rd
You like it cold then? Weather is usually great. Although I'd agree that you should avoid September if you don't want to risk hurricanes. Vey rare for parks to be closed but they do suspend rides every now and again until a storm blows over. This is a great price for summer hols (£1k each for flights alone for us next week), although around here we're back to school 3 September.
This won't apply to everyone but Bluelight card holders / civil servants with access to Edenred discount scheme can get a further 4% off. It does involve purchasing a gift card and then ringing TC to take the payment from the gift card and refund your original payment method but it's worth it on this kind of spend. Once purchased the gift card can be reloaded as and when needed. At least once a year the discount increases to 8%. It can be used in conjunction with the discount codes on the TC site and TCB as it is totally seperate. Hope this helps some people
We go every other July/August for 5 weeks and it's incredible. Use a little common sense and the heat is more than bearable.
We went in August last year and strongly advise against it. It was excruciatingly hot and humid during the day, making Disney world even more insufferable, followed by heavy thunderstorms almost every evening. To round it off, we only just missed the hurricane on our way out. I'd recommend avoiding the entire US Mexican gulf area in July-August- better off going during Easter holidays.
In Marmaris right now and its bleeding hot
https://www.tripadvisor.co.uk/Hotel_Review-g298033-d1228449-Reviews-Julian_Club_Hotel-Marmaris_Mugla_Province_Turkish_Aegean_Coast.html Always worth checking on TA to see what folks think first, it's never let me down!
Great hotel for Kids . You’ll annnejoy
Make sure you visit Old Goa. Taxis are cheap.
I did say almost.
I did say almost.
True. Been twice since 2000, for 5 weeks total and was not sick ever and only had the skwits once. One mega toilet visit and I was flushed out.
we were a family of 3, none of us was ill in the month we spent in south and north goa
cheap as you like
....Have ittt heat..
Hats off to you for this deal
Some good deals coming up now, managed to grab one going from Manchester on the 22nd of July for £827 for 2A + 2C to Greece with Thomas Cook, would have posted the deal here, but it was the last one,
Not all schools in EM breakup on 15 July . However if it's in your school holidays , as always from op excellent deal.
Well yeah it's October...
But you get to go away in October when the English weather will be crap, plus it'll be much cheaper than going away in the summer. I went away in December last year and it was great going somewhere warm while England was freezing over.
Only 1 room left a hour ago expired now
Love Corfu but weather in October is worse than average British summer
It says £639 for me :(
Its Bulgaria, thing will be stupidly cheap if you come from UK.
Is sunny beach really bad then? Is there nice parts to it? What is the cost of living like a cheap meal out, price of a beer, bottle of wine. What are supermarket prices like for bread,milk,, tobacco. That kind of thing?
But you remembered all of that??
If you can remember what you did on an 18-30 holiday you obviously weren't doing it right .....pre drinking......shots....more shots....fishbowl....tactal chunder.......nitrous oxide balloon.....more shots.....fall asleep in doorway........ ........then do it all again next day.
What has new york to do with the picture on the ad?
Excellent observation. I didn't realise, I just copied the link to TC flights. It may be that you can get cheap flights from New York to the Tropical paradise of Tropicana, where the drinks are free, but only at the club and sadly, only orange juice. TC using subliminal advertising to get you to spend even more. By George, I think that's it. They're taking the Michael.
The last time I went Coney Island wasn’t like that.
Rates are crap (embarrassed)
Is this not valid anymore or are the rates so crap it had to be expired ?
The £100 discount with code TURKEY has now finished, so deal expired.
https://www.gov.uk/foreign-travel-advice/turkey That doesn't sound safe to me, but hey if you're happy to save a few quid for a sunny holiday and risk the lives of you and your kids that's completely your call. Anyone calling me racist is pathetic. Terrorists are very likely to try to carry out attacks in Turkey. Terrorist groups, including Kurdish groups, Daesh (formerly referred to as ISIL) and far left organisations, continue to plan and carry out attacks. Further attacks could be indiscriminate.
Amazing to see the type of debates a holiday deal to Turkey can spark. I have been there twice and love it. Will go again but have plenty more places on my list which I have never visited. For me, the highlights were amazing weather, culture, sights, history, food and value for money for everything i.e. food, hotel, transport. I felt the country to be extremely welcoming and did not see the drama the news channels would like us all believing. Of course if you are concerned, then no point going. If you are on the edge then go for it. Turkey has always been a hot destination globally so not sure why there is so much fuss on this forum. Like others have pointed out, if you want to worry then you should worry driving on the motorway, or flying, or going around in London, Manchester, Birmingham. They all offer some level of risk to life. Don't believe everything you hear on the news! Thanks Op for sharing a good deal. Have some HEAT!
I'm sure you've been around the world mate, seeing as though you seem so very cultured (lol) (lol)
Over 3 million Brits heading to Turkey this year, and bookings are up as it offers fantastic value for money. Whilst the troubles at the moment are mainly contained to around the border areas with Syria we as a family are happy to go back to the same resort Lara Beach near Antalya for the 5th year running. We feel 100% safe in the resort, but as a lot of countries in the world today we also realise it can be a volatile country. I would point out that we are also doing Florida within the next year which will be a lot busier and for us a totally different type of holiday...
Great price gone up to £310 pp now
Decent for school holidays
Cracking good deal. Heat for the effort OP
Bargain - lovely place to stay.
Have stayed here a number of times, very nice family run place, well worth this money. :D
- she's a bit of a munter, the kids will love her and if nothing else the ride s will be fantastic
Done a similar deal a couple of weeks ago staying at that hotel via Thomas Cook. We thought it was spot on. Don't go expecting glam and you'll not be disappointed.
Thank you op I will have a look nice (y)
This one works out at £298pp from Manchester on 31/05. Screenshots don't include code you enter at checkout.
I got the live chat box too come up so keep trying and if it pops up get an agent to help you book it.
combine with this for getting to airport https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/airport-transfers-for-199pp-london-victoria-to-gatwick-luton-airport-kings-cross-to-stansted-easybus-2939793 recently used this from luton and its fine - you can use your ticket either side of 60 minutes if your plane is early or late - mine was early!
great bargain! you'll probably spend a bit more in ibiza though
Sleep at the airport the night before you go as it will be the only sleep you get for 7 nights.
Fab price for a budget getaway! Here is some very useful info for those that like a look see first.. https://www.oyster.co.uk/ibiza/hotels/casita-blanca-apartments/photos/studio/
October weather is supposedly similar to that of May, whilst it is still considered hurricane season the majority of the worst have historically hit August and September.
Good luck with the hurricanes. Personally I'd never go later than late may
Great price looked at this a couple of months ago and was £2,300 but ended up booking for October
Good price - wrong term...
Thanks @beverleyberney The link you posted is unique to you, i.e it's your search so nobody else will see your results and it goes to the homepage. Not your fault; it's just how Thomas Cook links are.
