    Last minute holiday deals required

    Me, my husband and 1 son 12yrs old have a chance to go away from the 16th Aug for 1 wk unexpectedly. We don't have a large budget only around £1000. I have been looking around the net today for deals but have been unable to come up with anything suitable.

    Does anyone have any good sites that they could recommend for last minute holidays at reasonable prices? Our preferred airport would be Cardiff but could manage to get to bristol if necessary. Any recommendations would be gratefully received

    Thanks Kate I will take a look now.



    flights i used moneysupermarket.com

    hotel [url]www.travelrepublic.co.uk[/url]


    for transfers i would use resorthoppa they are cheapest i've found if you use them make sure you pick the opition for them to text you ur pick up time!

    the flights are listed as more on moneysupermarket but when you connect to XL website they are reduced to what ive quoted

    Checking it out as we speak, did'nt think to do the flights and accommodation separately as I thought it would come out more expensive, thanks :thumbsup:

    Don't forget to factor in transfer/taxi exspenses :thumbsup:

    teletext hols website is brill. they may not always have what is on screen but ring them up and see what they can offer. you can also haggle with them. any hotels they offer you can be checked out at holiday-truths.com or holidaywatchdog. i found holiday experts was the best site to give offers on the phone, who i found on the telextext website.

    we did it this way and got all inclusive in turkey at a new five star hotel for £1500 for 4 of us.

    don't go via a high street travel agent, our was offering her best price at 4k!!!

    Try this site, my mate uses it all the time for last minute holidays.
