Anyone any recommendations for travel agents that are reasonable enough with last minute deals, looking at heading sometime early next week, prices seem to be a bit steep anywhere I have had a look so far, this is a real last minute decision because the house is still a bit of a building site and need another break away from it for a short while, any help lads Thumbs Up

There are good deals on this site although you might have to sift through a bit to find a last minute holiday

Good man Sham, yeah kinda knew that but as said it is all last minute would usually have booked well in advance but sometimes you just need to get off

only back from a week away with the young lad. €1200 half board it set me back. Self catering was something like €50 less each so no brainer to pay the bit extra for the grub of which I took full advantage. Point is that there was nothing going much cheaper. September is where youll get the value but thats no use if you want away now.

Yeah Sept would be ideal but time constraints and work commitments rule it out for both of us plus the chungfella will be back in school, I am sure you made hay while the sun shined

Ring up Cassidy Travel. Rang  on a Monday in June and that Friday I was on the way to Gran Canaria for 350 a head. Cracking apartment and location. Might have just got lucky with it but that deal wasnt advertised online.

Yeah that's my experience of last minute stuff too. Chances are they're cancellations or something that they didn't get a chance to put on their website. Call a few places and see if they've anything they want to offload. Give them your dates and your budget (obviously lowballing a bit) and see if they get you away

Flying midweek can be cheaper too, but that obviously only works if you're not bound by having to fly weekends.

Taking her to the Caribbean? Very posh.
Greed has won, big finance has won. Whatever small role elite clubs still play in the local communities from which they grew is dwarfed now by their position as global brands.

Very much doubt you'd even get flights alone for one person to the Carribean Puerto Rico. LOL
 
Was there myself with the family for a winter sun holiday 10 years ago.  Decent enough spot considering it's really a typical Spanish holiday resort ie full of McDonalds and british bars and restaurants and the like but from what you've said above, it looks like you're just looking for somewhere sunny and far away and a chance to clear the head and unwind for a week. At least it's not Playa del Ingles you're going to, I've heard it's meant to be an absolute dump, even worse than Shagaluf in Majorca and that takes some doing! LOL 
The nation holds it's breath...YES, WE'RE THERE!!!
