Some of the prices that people are getting quoted for next year are unbelievable, for many years I have booked everything separate, flights, transfer & apartment. Mid week cheap flight out and midnight flight coming back. Saves a fortune.

I have for a long time been a strong believer in DIY.That for me has now changed.I could not find anything to match Thomsons on line price for Club Aida next August 14 nights 2 adults and 1 child.....£1577 that is flying from local airport Doncaster.Cheapest flights I could find independly were £365!!!!

Isn't club aida a thomson exclusive hotel though? you'll never be able to undercut them on a hotel they have total exclusivity. sometimes diy works sometimes it doesn't we always go diy because we're more inclined to book a smaller independent hotel and pick the cheaper flights.

I believe Aida is a Thomson hotel.That said flights from my local airport Doncaster for next August are between £350-£400 that is without baggage costs!! Probable total costs for flights only approximately £1300/£1400!!! Have done DIY many times and have been a big fan.Just feel that the days of the really cheap flights have all but gone.

Hi Emma271112,

I thought that I would check this out.

The following are for two weeks flying from Gatwick with Thomson.

These were the only three I checked as many hotels are already full for September this year so I could not get a price but I feel that this trend would probably hold true.

09th September 2013

Albatros Apartments S/C £328

Club Turquoise S/C £571

Kervansaray A/I £883

08th September 2014

Albatros Apartments S/C £454

Club Turquoise S/C £493

Kervansaray A/I £832

So as you can see, one hotel is showing more expensive for 2014 but two are showing a reduction!

Holidays are not necessarily going to be more expensive next year. You just have to shop around!

Peter & Jean. :o)

We booked our holiday about 6 weeks ago, Club Alize 30th Sept for 10 nights A/I £550 each, thats with baggage and transfers, with First Choice ( 2 ADULTS AND 2 17YR OLDS). Some other family members also booked at same time for same place. I checked the same holiday last week and the price has shot up to £698 per person. How can tour operaters justify these increases its just shocking!!!!
