Where do you all book your holiday?

Hi

After a great trip to orlando this year we're looking to book up for next year. We are a family of 4 (2 adults, 2 kids ages 8 and 15).

I would like to know where all you Orlando experts book up your holidays?

We are planning to go early July 2015 and we would like to stay in a villa or suite.

We are willing to fly from Newcastle or Manchester.

Would it be better to book separately or as a package through Thomsons, Thomas Cook etc?

Open to any suggestions of ways to book and locations to stay.

Hope I've provided all the information you kind people need to help me out. :))

We either fly with BA... Glasgow - Gatwick - MCO or Aer Lingus....Glasgow - Dublin - MCO.

Book direct with the airlines

Hotels, mainly Travelrepublic or Expedia. A few times booked direct with the hotel. Always check around for prices first before booking

Car Hire, can vary with different companies for prices from year to year. In the past used Expedia, Netflights, AlamoBrits . Prefer Alamo as you choose your own car at MCO

Book everything individually. Usually, the only thing I combine book, is the flight and car insurance. For instance we found a good British Airways flight + car hire bundle this year. Park tickets we purchase online. Villa rental we organize direct with the owner. We have our favorites now, so we just contact them directly to let them know we want to rent their villa for our next trip.

Great. Any good sites for looking at Villas in particular? Thanks for the info people!! :))

I tried looking on kayak at flights for around the 10th July 2015 and it doesn't find any matching results. Am I looking too early?

We found Alamo Brits last year through this forum and booked our car with them. As others have said I use skyscanner to look at prices wherever I'm flying but always book direct with the airline.
