Prices..

Hi all!

Hoping to go to sharm on the 8th feb for a week

Just waiting in partner getting time of work confirmed!

I've been watching prices for a while sitting low 400's now have jumped up quite a bit! Do you guys think they will keep getting higher or could they drop again if I waited till very last min?

Looking for the best deal, originally thought we would be able to get away for £400 :(

Thanks in advance

Check teletext holidays online... The travel agents on there specialise in cancelations and late deals and the prices are cheaper

Many schools in England finish for half term on Friday Feb 13th and some people may take off for a holiday a few days early. So you are straying into school holiday time when the prices shoot up alarmingly.

You may possibly get a bargain if you hang on long enough but you may not have a lot of choice.

In my experience Sharm is one destination that goes up in price the longer you leave it to the last minute.

Try Golden Ticket Travel, we booked with them last year and it cost us £290 each for a week all inclusive in Sharm at the beginning of June. We booked a week before, had 20kgs of luggage, free transfers and late check out room included.

Can recommend them for exceptional customer service.

Also try Seaside Travel, travel agents, based in Easington, County Durham they have a FB page with contact details on. they are local to where I live and have some fantastic deals shown nearly every day x

I think a lot depends on the flight operators rather than the hotels so if the plane has spaces they may bring the prices down? I don't know if its a fact but in my experience if you leave it too near to departure they aren't as cheap as say a month or two before. Is this because they know you will pay more? Never quite sussed out when the best time to book is, I would say when you see a hotel you want at a price you like....then book it!

Good luck....must say the Golden Ticket travel does sound interesting. Never heard of it. I would think they would still use one of the regular airlines though? Kath

Hi, in my experience the price never comes down the earlier you book the cheaper. I think this is down to only 4 airlines flying direct to Sharm from the UK. For Example Easyjets policy is the flights are the cheapest when 1st released then they tend to go up daily, this is probably due to the T&C that say if you see your same flight

cheaper you can claim the difference back. We booked our flight in October for travel at the end of July, we payed £340 return inc bags and upfront seats, same flights are now £550. The price of the Hotel is just the same price now as when we booked,

Hope this helps Duncan

Nope we got prices just before Xmas took a couple of days to decide which hotel went to book and Thomas cook had put the price up £400. We have kept checking and have booked through love holidays.com part of hays but much cheaper. Thomson flight on the 5th Feb £1223 for 2

By delaying booking it cost us an extra £100
