Bargain Holidays to Turkey just now.
« on: July 04, 2016, 16:13:53 PM »
We were in Thomson's Travel Agency this morning.  Speaking to one of the girls she told us that holiday bookings are really down for Turkey.
She said that she cannot convince people that the trouble in Turkey is nowhere near the resorts, customers do not realise how far away Istanbul is.  She went on to say, that she had a phone call  this morning from a man asking for a cheap family holiday within a couple of weeks.  She asked  "Is there anywhere you do not want to go?"  He said, "Turkey". She said to us, this is the norm now.
This girl was telling us she has some cracking bargains for Turkey just now and all people have to do is ring and ask. She can do some wonderful deals.

No, we are already book for a cruise, just in picking up tickets.  Deals are no use to us, we just book flights. We were out May/June and will be out again in September.

Has anyone noticed if the flight only prices having been dropping for the school holidays, I've been watching for a while now not dropping much at moment, not panicking yet as there looks like there is a lot of availability and we can fly from a number of airports being midlands based. Just wandered if anyone's noticed a pattern in the past?

Jet2 have made it into the top flight of "Which" Magazines best holiday operators.

For a comparatively low cost company that's quite an achievement, competing successfully with the tailor - made companies.

I've never used them - Bristol and Exeter don't figure in their service.

I think the idea of getting a cheap flight is to be able to go the next week, not within a month or two. 
As I read on this Forum recently,  a lady got last minute flights from Belfast to Dalaman for £75.00 return.
