    Actually the AKL and WL are the 2 least expensive deluxes. Value hotels like pop will range from $82.-154.00 depending on the season. Mods from $154. - $226. And deluxe from $250.- $400. Of course I'm talking standard view. Start your change bank now!!!

    Mick get yourself a pound coin tin. I have one that looks like a big baked bean tin and you can only open it with a tin opener. I save pound coins for the two years prior to a holiday and it always has around 500 pounds in it - that's your two nights deluxe hotel stay plus change sorted!

    We use ours to save for the extras, I put aside $25. per day for breakfast the resort mugs, one special breakfast, if we drive I usually come up with the funds for meals and hotels as well. I usually can save abot $600. in a year, sometimes more!
