who do you all book with /through?

This is our second year booking with onthebeach.com we went with them again as despite them being more expensive this year compared to exact same deal last year, we had no qualms and a straightforward holiday last year. It was simple to just book all online although the card charges and admin charge per transaction when you pay off the balance is quite frustrating!!!

Who do you book with to get the best possible deal? x

I booked DanDare (Ryanair) direct from Prestwick, then hotel via trivago (to travelrepublic) also transfers via travel republic, but I always have about 6 tabs going with hotels.com, laterooms.com, travelrepublic etc, so I take my time and shop around,,,, without doubt my best deal was with Ryanair and I live only a couple of miles from the airport so happy daze ;-)

Cheers Wullie ;-)

Last year booked as a package holiday on Icelooly but flew from Manchester to save a bit of cash and ended up wasnt worth the hassle cause of the 6/7 hour travel to get to Manchester but this year booked through Jet2 and flying from glasgow thankfully

I know it sounds obvious, but I search the net and get several quotes and reference numbers then phone up the main tour operators and ask them to match the quotes or near as possible.

It worked for me this year and got me the peace of mind by using a tour operator with the cheapness of internet offers. If they want your custom they will bend over backwards to get near as possible to your quotes, just as long as you can prove it with reference numbers and flights ect

I know from England ye have a great choice but from Ireland we are very limited . first choice/falcon have monopoly and as of this they charge extortionate prices. I generally book with booking.com, could have 10 hotels for same date booked as they don't charge a penny til 2 days before & then I look at updated prices every 3-4 days. also use alpharooms but only confirm booking if im 100 as they do charge fees. skyscanner for flights. it takes up a bit of time but I have saved thousands over the years & never had any problems with bookings made. the savings allow us to have 3-4 holidays a year instead of 1 expensive holiday.

hope this helps
