Yeah I got the Volkswagen Polo with full insurance for 8 days at £10.79 a day, you were spot-on pal (y) Without the insurance it was about £3 a day.


Thanks mate. Booked my flights 11th to 18th (better flight times for me), I'll sort the rest tonight (y)


I think I had a Renault Clio, booked via the Wizzair website. The prices direct were more expensive. I would suggest just book from their site and get their insurance... but it will cost...


Was this with the company in the OP mate?


If you got the time can you expand a bit on the £11 a day, like which model car and insurance you had? Am thinking of booking a similar deal to the OP tonight and any advice will be appreciated mate, thanks.

Free Car Hire with Ryanair If you find the same offer for a lower price on any car hire supplier’s direct websites

You don’t expect me to read all that before making my booking do you? No, that’s far too much information for any person to process at once I’ll just ignore that and go straight ahead and make my booking. I’ll then also ignore any emails making me aware of any rules I need to adhere to and optional extras I need to purchase before hand if I want them included. I’ll then be shocked and surprised on the day that these optional extras aren’t included and that there are rules I need to adhere to. I’ll expect them to make an exception for me though because I feel I’m special and it is totally unreasonable to expect me to have been aware of these issues. If they don’t then I’ll make sure I go on HotUkdeals and post on every Ryanair deal that I hate them and will never use them again.


I completely trust Ryanair not to try and wriggle out of their obligations under some obscure terms and conditions: All our hire car prices include a free piece of used chewing gum under the seat.


This or very similar deal was reported on bbc watchdog as almost impossible to get, as you had to claim within such a short time frame


Car comes with 2 seas as standard, extra seats are charged at £20 per passenger per day, Steering wheels can be provided basic cost of £10 per day. As a bonus FREE offer for June only all straight line driving will be non-chargeable, but all turns of the wheel are charged at 2p per manoeuvre.


But you have to collect the car from Ormskirk ;) ...wheels are extra

Well done, what a well thought out and valuable reasoning behind it being cold. I for one will save £25 on the Avis booking I was making anyway, so thank you to the OP.


mmmmm so cold.


But you don't it is right there in the title.... Avis!


£25 isnt worth jack if you have to search high and low for somebody who will let you spend it.


Yes it is a deal website so how can a saving of £25 not be a deal. Can you please explain how I could save more than this by not using an Amex card? Also the BA Amex card has the same 0.3% interchange fee as a Visa or Mastercard credit card.

I came back from Zadar yesterday from a week's holiday. I loved it there. Seems like a good base for exploring the region and the old part of the city is nice with marble paved pedestrianised streets, a few museums and roman monuments. The old city is compact and I would say two days and even one day (if well planned) is enough to explore everything you'd like to visit there. The ferry trip to Preko, Uglijan island was worth it. It has a quieter more relaxed feel than Zadar. You can walk up to St Michael's fortress for a view of all the surrounding islands. Also, there's an tiny island Osljak (just a 5 minute ferry trip away) that is the smallest inhabited island in Croatia. There are just 29 people living there and parts of it are wooded. The scenery there is beautiful and feels like a desert island. When I visited there was just a handful of people visiting. I also loved Skradin, an old town on the mainland with a pretty upmarket marina full of yachts. Said to be Bill Gates's favourite spot. You can hop on a boat for £11 and visit Krka national park (included in boat trip)and see the waterfalls (right by the boat drop off point). Or you can drive there and park nearby instead. Very beautiful and quite tropical feeling with turquoise waters. No swimming allowed but plenty of people did, all the same. Plitvice Lakes was quite breathtaking. Massive waterfalls and boardwalks, allowing you to get up close to them. If I had more time, I would have liked to have gone on a trip to see the Kornati, some barren islands as a bit of contrast.


Hot deal btw book it now! Sorry this is long ..I should put this on Trip Advisor lol. Croatia is a beautiful country. It gets very hot in Summer.. we went in August when Ryanair was doing cheap flights from EMA. Spent just under a week in Zadar. Full of culture if you are willing to do research. Ancient artefacts and tombs at the back of old Cafés etc.and they are happy for you to explore too.... So lovely. We rented a room in a family apartment right next to the old bell tower and they made us feel so welcome and offered us so much local knowledge. They drove us to Plitvice Lakes stopping off at some fantastic sites we even got to see bears too. Plitvice is just stunning and got some local knowledge about the secret smaller waterfall routes around the outskirts. The local ferry is very cheap and we did three days of island hopping the closest island was Preko (£1.50 ish return) very beautiful and there was lots to explore an old monastery too. Great for snorkeling as shallow and clear although tiny fish! A Sunday morning ferry about £5-6 pp return takes you to Dugi Otok it's for locals so not advertised..ask at the ticket offices (would cost £80 return if you got a private boat) Famous for it's lush sandy have to get a road train over to the other side of the island.. excellent snorkeling and walking. We ventured out of Zadar over the bridge for our second week to the more local beach resort on the island of Vir. No sandy beaches on most of Croatia's islands but crystal clear waters. Take rubber shoes for swimming. Most rented accommodation includes padded beach mats. Also visited the town of Nin on the mainland (where they claim to have the world's smallest cathedral) We explored the town and spent half the day on the Ninska Laguna sandy beach close by. Top tip.. don't walk to the end of the spot of beach and cover yourself in the mud from head to toe... You will ruin your bikini and have a whiff of boggy stench for days. You may end up with more legs room on the return flight though so weigh it up.. Buses are frequent and cheap with Aircon in the Zadar county. . The people are really lovely too. We had our neighbours bring us grapes grown in their garden.. oh and you can get the Jadrolinja ferry from Zadar to Italy overnight too for about £20ew but we didn't have time. I loved it there. Can't wait to explore more of Croatia. The only thing we were disappointed in was the fact that a lot of food is imported.. especially in the Zadar restaurants. We were expecting fresh fish etc.. but more pizzas and frozen meats but all perfectly lovely. The pag cheese and cold meat deli shop had a few local foodstuffs..also awesome dates and seasonal fruit at the local market.. but I like trying local cuisine so this was the only negative. Oh I almost forgot the sea organ on Zadar waterfront.. and some lighting up thingy at dusk and you must buy a few bottles of Maraska Maraschino to look pretty in your drinks cabinet


Thanks :D , I double checked and measured our trollies and your right. Can’t wait 8)


Those sizes are the size of a standard hand luggage size trolly case which EasyJet allow free of charge on board, airlines like Ryanair and Wizz Air now charge for these.


Just a quick question, I’ve checked online and all info seems to suggest the allowed baggage for the flight unless you pay extra is 1 (56x45x25cm) bag not a trolly case.

You can take public transport into Europe if you didn't know


Are we walking to Europe? :/


Or you can just buy any top-up insurance before you go.


Just make sure you budget for a car (and park tickets). Those free cars are not free at all. Basically no insurance. If you book a car before you go out its cheaper than the upgraded insurance you need to buy when you get there for the "free" one.

Well, I am disputing it and see where we go from there. A quick google and you will find that Hertz has a pretty bad reputation for this sort of scam long after the rental period when people are not taking the additional insurances they punt.


seriously , you are going to to tell them to eff of right ?


It's usually cost me about £40 to drop a hire car off at a different airport/location than the one I collected the car from, but I have often been upgraded to a high spec car for the whole higher period, I normally higher small cars like a fiesta, and have had Audi Q5, mercs and others like them, and they all returned good mpg at a steady 70mph down the motorway. I also have yearly excess insurance for all of Europe and the UK. I also rent a car from malaga Airport and get the cheapest deals I can (usually through the airline I fly with) the hire car is classed as an older, high mileage and a bit battered and cost about £60 or less for a week, I've had several new cars (delivery miles on the clock) VW, Renault, Ford's and skodas, and when they offer me extra insurance at the hire desk, I always say with a slightly raised voice "I hire lots of vehicles every year and have private excess insurance" that shuts them up with the fear facture they were about to spout on about, as they don't want everyone to know about the el cheapo insurance, as they want to be ripping of the next people in the line.


Dont think they have a drop off Hertz depot at your local dump


This is really smart, now you pay 1 £ to move their cars around, which otherwise would have been paid-for job :D

If anybody takes this kind of deal without accommodation in Florida, I would suggest you leave it late if you wanted a villa. Even at the busiest times of year, there are thousands of villas sitting empty around Kissimmee (which is where everybody stays - Orlando is the city nearby but generally ISN'T where people stay), so during quieter periods (which I think this is) there are even more. I've done this many times before and you can easily save around 50% on villa costs. I used to basically search for the period you want, then look at the villas until you find ones you like, then block email the owners asking for their best possible last minute price. Just use one of the big villa rental sites like Home Away. I used to send off maybe 100 messages, sometimes more. I always ended up with some amazing deals. It's hard to say exactly but these were the approximate results of my requests; No discount - 5% of respondents 5-10% discount - 10% of respondents 10-20% Discount - 25% of respondents 20-30% discount - 30% of respondents 30-40% discount - 20% of respondents 40-50% discount - 10% of respondents Yes, that does all add up to 100% for all those that just checked (nerd) The best deal I got was a 7 bed (yes 7!!) villa withy a massive pool for, I think, 18 days. This was over 10 years ago now but it should have been £3,200 but as a last minute deal I got it for £800 with pool heating! Basically a 75% discount. Now this was an extreme discount, but the reasoning by the owner was that he was going away on business and didn't think he'd get any other bookings for those weeks so he took the chance to get something. It was also new to the rental scene and that's what I've noticed - generally newer properties on the holiday rental market (often advertised as NEW) usually offer good discounts anyway. You may find it a good idea to target any such properties as the owners are very keen to start getting SOME money in AND to build up reviews. Again, I've done this many times - I've rented 15-20 villas around Kissimmee and have never paid full price. Most of my offers were between 30-50% off. You can often get freebies included too such as pool/jacuzzi heating, which would normally cost £75-£100 or so per week. We've also got good deals by renting 2 villas for the period, but the only downside with this is that you may need to pay 2 deposits. If you sent off 100 enquiries you can expect to receive back around 10 owners offering you 40-50% discount. Whatever, give my suggestion a bash and see how much you can save! Hope this helps!


I think that's a cracking price ... Who's with me!!!


Probably an impossible question to answer, but how much lower do people think this might drop, if at all?


You can buy much cheaper insurance from here.

Gutted I missed this, by the time if checked with my work if the time was available it was gone!


Not a bad price, but once you have added £100 to select your seat and £235 car insurance the price creeps up. I wouldn't fancy driving on USA roads in a Vauxhall Corsa equivalent, so an SUV is £370 with insurance, so comes up at £1770. I had a good late deal last September with Virgin, 8 nights, flights with seat selected, SUV with full insurance and villa with games room and large pool for only £1825 all in for four adults. I booked it mid-august for a 2nd sept departure. On departure day we checked in at Disney springs so no lugging suitcases around. I was going to go for a last minute spain deal, but Orlando was cheaper. Bought Universal annual passes for £260 each so we could use them this year, also gets you free parking and 10% off food and merchandise. So if your after a cheap deal this year. look in August for September deals.


Well yes, obviously. Some of us normal people genuinely can't afford to go in school time, sorry.

Ok. Thanks.


Are you on a budget? I would do all you can eat in the morning, your kids are free when you go so it's just 2 adults. I'd recommend Golden Carrol for breakfast. If your really on a budget and cannot afford all parks, for £102pp (think kids are free under 5?) you can do SeaWorld/Busch/Aqua 14 days with free parking. Take snacks to parks etc as it's expensive to eat in parks $37 all day dining including drinks in the park per person, can eat every hour.


good advice. I would that add that buying park tickets in advance generally does normally save a fortune compared to gate prices.


Thank You, I will have a look at how that works out for us

Give them a call, no harm in asking if they have any discount codes for first time bookings. I don’t think there will be codes before long as I think they are introductory discounts.

We bought a 2014 Ford Focus from main Ford dealer thinking that and less than two years later it needs a new engine. Serviced regularly by Ford with average mileage and the warranty company are still arguing about paying out. When it’s fixed it will be sold and we will be leasing. You can’t get a brand new, decent spec car for this sort of monthly payment unless you lease and you have peace of mind that it goes straight back if anything goes wrong.


Doubt it - would say about break even, but longer term ownership you'd be worse off.


Ok so if that’s the case my full outlay for the 2 years was £4900 so I’m still quids in leasing! (y)


Nobody pays book price - especially for a kia! Would be surprised if you'd have had to pay more than 20k new for that.


I second this comment - I actually got a refund from Alphabet on my first lease car - not a single charge there was a small dint on pass door where some tool had opened car door onto mine. the inside of the boot had been well used with bikes frequently going in and out. Like the dude says look after it as if it is your own and keep clean, also before they come to inspect pay £20 for a full valet in and out make sure it is spotless. all the guys do is come out check it over and drive it direct to an auction house or you could negotiate buying it at the end they will offer a massive reduction....
