price of flights

Can anyone tell me what the average price is to Antigua from the Uk, we hope to be travelling next January, BA is showing around £900 one way! That surely cannot be right.

It's a bit early for 2015 flights to be released. Try www.newmont.co.uk for good prices or wait till BA next have a sale - you can generally expect tp pay between £550 and £650 return

Best prices I have seen were for January this year £360 return with Thomas Cook from Manchester - very good indeed but not around for long.

If you go to the ba.com site and put in dates in Jan 2015 it comes up as £337 each way, economy class.

Both BA and Virgin have sales throughout the year - not sure when the next one is but if you type - BA SALE - in the SEARCH box at top of page you should get a link. There is a guy on the Barbados forum who posts when BA have sales and Virgin usually follow.

Thanks for replies. Yes looked at the BA site, £337 outbound, now £1500 inbound. Because its towards the end of January we want I think the prices are a bit squiffy on the inbound and hopefully will right itself over the next week. ChrissieH I I know who you mean so will keep a look out on the Barbados site. Will wait for the sales or just keep an eye on prices, just wanted a guide to cost out a holiday. Anyone know of good carhire? we have been quoted $65 per day plus $15 for insurance, is this a good price?

We did not hire a car in Antigua - we stayed in hotels both times and hired a local driver for a round island tour first time and then used taxis. Second time we planned to have a car for a couple of days to revisit places but illness prevented that. We thought the hotels were a bit more out of the way - unlike Barbados where they are mostly close to the main highways- so people tended to stay in resort more. Driving around was fine - a few potholes so would not like to try at night but easy enough by day. We paid roughly the same as trips to Barbados.

Debating as to whether we really need a car. We hope to be staying just outside Jolly Harbour so will not be in resort but not sure if I can justify paying for a rental car that may stand still some days. Went to Barbados last year and it was so easy to jump on a reggae bus-cheap too but wanted to try somewhere different. Sounds like it may be a different kind of holiday.

Not been to other Caribbean Islands but gather that Barbados is a bit different in that you can get around really well on local transport so we usually have a car there for a couple of days only. We liked Antigua, great beaches, people, places to visit, but you do have to think about how you are going to get around ( more so if you are resort based ) I would guess you would get a better weekly car hire rate than hiring by the day.
