Wow. That's brilliant.
How much was your holiday for you to get a thousand pounds off?

Happypeeps11 Mon 03-Feb-14 18:49:02

£9500 down to£8500! 2 weeks full board

ihatethecold Mon 03-Feb-14 19:01:01

Please say that's for a large family!

Where are you going?

You spent how much on a holiday? That's obscene

diabolo Tue 04-Feb-14 16:26:21

The OP might have saved up for years for this, or she just may be well off. As long as she hasn't harmed anyone to get the money to pay for it , I don't think people should be saying its obscene.

People choose to spend their money on what is important to them and rightly so.

Everything is relative klingy

Perfectlypurple Tue 04-Feb-14 16:42:59

Of course it's not obscene to spend that ona holiday. It's their money to spend as they wish. We spent nearly 4 grand on a holiday before spending money for just the 2 of us. It was a special occasion and we work hard for our money with very little time together because of the shifts we work so our holiday is our time.

Have a fabulous holiday op

What a great saving, I'm sure you will enjoy the holiday more knowing you got a discount.
Enjoy your holiday.

In like neilsons holidays although the cost in school hols is more than going long haul all inclusive!

revealall Tue 04-Feb-14 18:09:46

I don't have a problem with people spending 8 or 9 grand on holiday.

It just seems a shame that most of that money is going to a big company rather than small Greek businesses. Yes I know they might use some of the local services but it won't be anything like £8,000 worth. (perhaps you could spend that grand you saved locally).

diabolo Tue 04-Feb-14 18:20:52

Agree there revealall, I wouldn't do all- inc, some of my favourite towns and restaurants in Menorca are really starting to suffer through so many AI hotels. OD for a villa and arrange my own flights and car hire every time. Though it does work out more expensive usually, I happily pay the extra not to be stuck in a hotel with a thousand other people listening to Take That impersonators. grin

givemeaclue Tue 04-Feb-14 19:05:00

Op don't worry, you will not be in a hotel with take that impersonation. Neilsons are small hotels with lots of great sports tuition. The actual hotels are locally owned they are not owned by Neilsons. Many staff will be local. You will have a lovely time. We are not talking drink till you drop all inclusive, in fact drinks are not included!

givemeaclue Tue 04-Feb-14 19:06:34

So put that in your pipe and smoke it those of you who would stay in a small local hotel, the op is!

Wossname Tue 04-Feb-14 19:08:14

Fucking hell, that's my annual take home pay

Happypeeps11 Tue 04-Feb-14 19:11:05

Thanks for all the nice comments. It is a lot of money and we do work hard to save for 1 big holiday a year. On that holiday we really enjoy certain aspects. 2 weeks, somewhere hot, great food, pref all inc or full board, package including flights, sleeps 6 room set up, loads of great activities for kids and Dh. (I am happy with book!) next to a nice sandy beach. 4-5* accommodation in peak school summer holidays! If anyone has any cheaper suggestions for us for next year, please let me know lol!

BackforGood Tue 04-Feb-14 19:13:45

Try Tunisia or Turkey.
OK, only 5 of us, not 6, but got 2 weeks with all that (well, we didn't use kids club) for half that price last year.

Happypeeps11 Tue 04-Feb-14 19:16:33

I am sure i will cope with a bit of the take that thing! A nice cocktail in hand a warm evening and anything will seem ok

Happypeeps11 Tue 04-Feb-14 19:18:38

I would look at turkey, don't necessarily want kids clubs more kids activities as kids a bit older now. Where did you go? Hotel/operator?
