Which airline though? Sounds pretty good - £4372 for 5 adults and 2 children with Virgin.

Often better to wait for the sales around January.

Doesnt sound a bad price . BY waiting you might get a less price just after Christmas , but if you hang on too long getting tickets for a large group becomes more difficult. You can nearly always pick up 2 to 4 but when you start to ask for seven you often get turned down.

I would say to you If you are happy to pay this price Book the tickets..

As the time gets nearer you may see them come down but they may go up. At least you will have the satisfaction that you have got yours and wont be disappointed or spend a lot of time shopping around and having to change dates according to availability..

Is this price just for Flights . or does it include a car or accommodation.

And more importantly is the the Total on the invoice. ie no add on's like booking fee, fuel surcharge,, cost of meals, etc.

Who is the Carrier.

Hi Angelfire

Who was this with? Very interested as hoping to go in June 08 and have seen a good price but not as good as this.

For July dates this is a great price if its from Scotland as this is the school hols and generally the time prices are bumped up.

Thanks ever so much for your comments. i think i will go ahead and book! the £449 was the end price including all taxes etc at it totaled up the final price for me. I need to pay extra for the meals but at an extra £12.00 each i don't mind.

Thanks
