    Hotel Confirmation

    Managed to bag 3 rooms for the weekend for 3 cents in Italy under this deal hotukdeals.com/ite…e-f
    Have just recieven confirmation from the hotel offering me 5000 Priority Club points if I cancel the reservation....I was tempted and did look to see what I could get with them but basically theres nothing

    Just thought I would see who else managed to book this place and whether they are going to confirm their booking....apparently within 2 days

    When are we going? What time you picking me up? :-D

    yeah - i was wondering if you were inviting people to join you too

    email them back ask for 50,000 points .....they might go for it as they will be taking such a hit on that room rate....we did it all the time when I worked in hotels

    do you think they would up it? Was in the news it was going to cost them hundreds of thousands of pounds to honour all the room bookings....I would quite happily cancel 2 of the rooms and save just the one for me

    the 1cent price even includes airport transfers lol

    Are they having a laugh 15,000 points only get a £25 argos voucher so equivalent to a generous £8 :lol:

    ive stayed in Quarto D'Altino its a little bit out of Venice itself, but is very easy to travel around and only takes a short while to get into the city.

    I personally would either try and get more or go!

    EDIT: Im free this weekend!

    yep,probably....the venice hotel will always have high occupancy and the fact they have emailed you means they need those rooms......well worth a try....say along the lines of due to other confirmed bookings for inward travel I would only be able to cancel if you were able to offer me 50,000 points, they may start to barter with you......if the email is direct from the hotel return it for the attention of the Director of Rooms...

    I checked reviews before I booked....wouldnt want to go for 'free' to just anywhere lol....apparently there is a train stop just outside so travel would be fine...also booked pretty good rooms...executive I think (sound proof to minimise outside noise..........such a pity i aint got a fella to go with now :whistling:) oh and it aint this weekend....its not til Jan 2010

    that sounds good....I think I might have a think about it overnight and email them tomorrow....Im not sure if the email means I would have to cancell all the rooms...as I said I wouldnt mind cancelling 2 of them and going myself in the other room...but with it been such a good offer I would have liked to at least experience it 'just to say I did' kinda thing.
    rep for the suggestion though

    next year? damn missed that bit! well if you can change the names on the rooms ;-)
    yeah the train station is one of the only things there! Its quite small area, but only takes 15mins and your in central Venice! I stayed in Holiday Inn in the same area the first time i went to Venice and was nice, little pizzeria and few little shops about.
