Is that one week?

Original Poster

Yes one week . I have found some for £536 with Airflights.co.uk.... Has any one heard of them I dont know if to book in panic!!!

I've found Monarch at £651. I'll keep looking.:thumbsup:

Had a quick look at flight.co.uk thru quidco and they seem to offer a price of £528, may be worth a look, (had to depart from manchester)

I haven't heard of Airflights.co.uk - I wouldn't rush into it. It may work out cheaper to do two single flights.

Great... But can anyone see any from Newcastle?

Just change the search criteria at the top of Skyscanner page. There are flights from Newcastle - seems to be £493.

I cant find it for that price, Im sorry to be a pain but do you have the link?

Looks like when you change the departure to Newcastle it hikes the price up to £506.

Here's the link, but the prices might well fluctuate a bit.

Yeah, sorry - it is coming up with the same flight twice. I'm not sure why. I'll keep looking later today.

Thanks for the above but it states a little further down the page that

""""Our check indicates that your inbound and outbound flights are no longer available""""

I have now got internet connection for the next 2 hrs so I will be checking this thread all the time while Im looking myself:thumbsup:

It looks like the prices have gone crazy! Probably due to people like you OP needing to get to destination after XL gone pearshaped.
You can either get the best price you can now, or hang on for a while - a week maybe and see if thing settle down. Good luck.

apparently easyjet are doing an offer £75 one way...... check it out

Can't find that myself - I've looked at the options - the OP wants to fly from as far North as possible - there don't seem to be flights to Lazarote from Newcastle or Manchester. Other flights from Gatwick still working out at £700 odd. Where did you see the easyjet offer ROKO?
