These hotel deals aren't all they're cracked out to be- If you want to go during school hols you have to take what you can get, rather than what you want. I have been on two other breaks with their vouchers. The first time I found what I wanted immediately as it was in a remote location and not school hols (for a family birthday) but the following time I had to ditch my plans for a stay in an 'Old English Inn' after trying 7 different hotels - school hols.
Yes, we knew we could use them up to end of December but alas there's currently nothing in their deals that we fancy. And as Hi-De-Hi has pointed out, a lot of the "deals" are now so restricted, you'd be better off paying cash, getting a discount and using the clubcard vouchers to buy some shopping. It's all a bit disappointing because once upon a time it was a genuinely good deal. Sign of these recessive times I suppose.

I've been to Zurich, I can understand why you would want return tickets! LOL
Hadn't thought of using my Tesco Vouchers for it though.
I've just used a batch by converting to airmiles and booking the eurostar to paris 2nd January for a few days . The deal wasnt fabulous although it would of been a better deal had we gone a couple of days later but still cheaper in monetary value than booking direct with Eurostar and I didnt have to shell out any cash . There were some great deals for flights to Paris over christmas /new year with airmiles . If they are still available 750 airmiles return (BA) which works out about £40 in tesco vouchers each but the only way I was going to get Dave out of the country over christmas was by a relaxing jaunt on the eurostar and not a hectic airport .
Ill use another batch for restaurant tokens and we can go into london christmas Eve .Have something to eat , stroll around leicester sqaure , trafalgar , down the mall to buckingham palace etc . Did that last year and it's lovely christmas Eve night .
