    Has anyone here ever used Teletext Holidays online?

    Found a couple of holidays flying from Edinburgh for this weekend (which is a bonus) and wondered if anyone had ever used them before? You get a code to quote online then phone them up. Or is it a case of the holiday not existing in the first place and they try to sell you something else at a higher price? Any advice appreciated.

    My mum, dad and sister did to cyprus - had a good hol however they got relocated 4days into their holiday but that was to do with the operator not teletext hols.

    they are reputable-been around a long time,altho many times the holidays they advertise dont actually exist! if you call up and quote the code and can actually get the holiday at the price stated then its perfectly safe.

    Thanks - though don't like the sound of having to move halfway through!

    That's what I thought - I remember when they were actually on the teletext on tv LOL! Just wondered if the price you see if the price you pay sort of thing. Think I may give it try with the quoting the code when I phone and see what they say. Some good bargains to be had but suppose because its flying in 2 or 3 days' time (totally unprepared with 2 adults and the 2 youngest to pack for but what the heck) . Thanks.

    lol, got a flydrive to Florida off them years ago. Phoned up and quoted the price on teletext (it was that long ago) and the salesperson advised that price had just sold out but offered me the same flight etc for more cash! Can't remember how much more it was but we took it anyway as it was still cheaper than other quotes. Chancers methinks.

    That was what I was thinking - get you hooked with the ideal flights/hotel/price then when you phone its more expensive than originally quoted. Still can't decide which one to go for so still deliberating anyway!

    Thanks for info - ticked your "like" button (I miss rep!) and the others above too.
