Thanks - I'll have a look now.

I've used HolidayPirates before. Had a great deal to Madrid for 5 days.

Same as above except adding TravelRepublic. Past few years Alpharooms has normally been cheaper than Travelrepublic but both cheaper than OTB (Like OTB's site layout, normally find a holiday on the site that I like then price the same holiday in TR and Alpharooms to compare).
Have had experience with both Travelrepublic and Alpharooms in having to request help due to cancelled flights (Air Traffic controller strike once so flight out was cancelled and also stranded due to flight home being cancelled and moved) both where excellent in helping was another issue where because our dates changed the transfer company messed up (transfers where booked through them also), went to ring to confirm pickup time and they said the transfer had been cancelled only the pickup date had been moved. CS desk even emailed the communication to show it was not an error with them, got someone in resort to call us who said they could arrange transfer again with a different company unless I wanted to arrange myself, which I did but then when we got home they actually refunded me the entire total cost of the transfers as a goodwill gesture without even asking (literally arrived home and email and refund had been done while we where in air)
