Dodgy website?

8
Found 16th Aug 2010
I've been looking for a good deal for a night in a family room in a hotel near windsor and a day at legoland. When I did a google search 'legoland and hotel deals' a sponsered website link appeared for budgetfamilybreaks.co.uk I went to the site and found a hotel with a family room with cot, bed and breakfast and admission for 2 adults, 1 child and a baby to legoland for £82. Checked prices for entry and seemed like a great deal. Rang the number and booked using Visa. Now wondering if it's a dodgy site- no mention of it on here or MSE. Anyone heard of it? Have had confirmation email and will ring hotel and check booking in morning.

is that good or bad ?

In my opinion, good. It's a registered limited company.

Looks like a legit company, the only issue is that the company number listed on the whois info differs from the companies house company number but the other info matches.

Great, thank you. I'll ring the hotel this morning to confirm the room has been booked and call legoland to check they accept email confirmation print outs from this company.

Hi,

Visa Debit or Visa Credit Card.

If Visa Credit Card then you have their guarentee (subject to their minimun spend), you can check that with your card issuer.
