Thought I had the bargain of the year!

    Just went to book flights to Florida with going out on 5th June for 2 weeks flying from Manchester for 3 of us. Coming up with a bargain price of £719 for all three of us but when I went to book it was giving an error message - phoned XL and guess what it's wrong :-(

    why is ti wrong

    They said it's an error on the website - that's why it won't let me book. Offered me another date at £1370 - over £500 difference!

    did you argue it with them.

    What a swizz. I feel for you- because you just know that someone, probably someone you know, has got a deal like that and when you tell them about this, they're going to tell you about their deal and you will have to
    ... smile
    .. It's not me!!

    i hate that. its like the sign in the windw that say from 99pound. then it is nowhere near. swizzlers

    did you argue it with them.

    Did argue with them but to no avail - take it at the price they offered on the phone and if I found it cheaper elsewhere they would price match. Hardly a good deal considering it was £500 dearer than advertised.

    I spoke to a travel agent today who said it's a common problem on their website - seems they put really cheap prices to lure you to ring and sell you a flight at a higher price.
