    I am not sure about holidays but worth pricing your packages up for next year again. Some people are getting price reductions. We are getting a call sunday as we only booked friday. The girl said a lot of people are complaning and have every right to.
    Call the uk number not the indian call centre.

    I've just repriced mine but the exact holday has gone up.

    However i can fly out a week earlier and stay for 4 weeks instead of 3 and it cost nearly £100 less!!!

    I will be ringing Val tomorrow.Even with a £25 PP ammendment fee it won't cost anymore than the 3 weeks.

    That quote includes the new tax prices too!!!

    We paid £2209 for 3 weeks and the total cost for 4 weeks fly drive is £2118.

    I wonder if it's that easy.
    As i'm adding extra to the hol i might not even have to pay ammendment fee!!!

    LOL didn't think you'd be on tonight!!!

    That would be £25 per person wouldn't it?

    Which would mean 4 weeks would still cost less than the 3 weeks we have booked now?

    I wonder if i'd get away with no ammendment fee if i booked the first weeks accomodation as the cost would go up then but we'd get 4 weeks?

    Usually they don't charge if you add and spend more though.

    Even with a £75 ammendment fee it would still be cheaper for 4 weeks!

    Quite a cheap quote for our dates next May - but still more for a fly-drive than we've paid with Thomas Cook for 2 weeks in a 4 bed villa , car hire and flights!

    Cheap stuff for Virgin though - Half the price of May 2008's!!!!

    repriced mine. No economy seats left so it would not be cheaper. Noticed 'Vaa discounts' quoted twice and came to £600 off. Anyone know what this is???

    Going to play round with few dates either side to see if any economy seats available. Swings and roundabout as noticed the duty/taxes had doubled.

    Well i phoned Val and she said it shouldn't be a problem.
    She is just waiting to hear from VH now.

    If we lose our Vroom i will probably add that back in and i'd like to book the first 15 nights hotel too and hope that they won't charge me the ammendment fee as i will actually be giving them more.

    As i have the DC ultimate ticket we have 14 days tickets already so won't need any more for the extra week.Think i will add an extra night at RPR s we can now fit it in and be able to make more use of the 7 day ickets we have.

    Disney time will stay the same though but i can live with that!!!
