the flights all went up after xl and dropped after woolies-ours were £300 each and went to £100!
personally i would give it a couple of weeks as things are getting worse and atm prices look high to me (but im no expert:oops:)

lol get the page saved on your faves and check it daily-credit card in hand:thumbsup:

We are trying to book a trip in June to Egypt ..... good place to go this year with the Euro and dollar being so strong that it makes a hol to either Europe or USA very pricey (My 4 day Xmas trip to Paris went from £600 to £900....thank Bank Of England!!!!!)

Anyway I found the best deals on teletext holiday website..... never used them before but my mum used to back in the days of Ceefax/teletext. Loads of so called 'five star' all inclusive hotels (which I checked on Tripadvisor and received 4 out of 5 rating) for about £320 per person for a week.

If thats too much there were some for £260 for a week which got 3 out of 5 on tripadvisor and lots of complaints about ruined holidays through food poisoning.....also as some of them are just outside of Sharm El Sheikh they prefer Russian guests and treat westerners badly - so I read...

Always worth doing your research.
