Hello all. Its the first time i've been on here since my last visit to Goa in 2005.
My wife and i along with two friends are planning a holiday in Goa in December. The last time we came we booked a cheap package holiday, we used that hotel as a base and traveled around a lot. I'd like to do the same again except the price of the package holiday seems to have gone up quite a bit. Could you please help me with the names of some travel companies that do cheaper deals (under £600 for a fortnight). I know of Jewel in the crown but thats about it.
I have also considered flight only and booking a villa. Does anyone know of a website that advertises Goan villas?
Package deal are still not cheap at the moment as I've been looking for ages (although I've got single supplement to add on). Have you tried Olympic? Park Avenue is coming up at about £636 but otherwise it seems that most of the holiday companies want £700 +.
Travelzoo is a good site to keep an eye on as they have one off reductions and I was lucky to get a deal with them last year. (stayed at Park Avenue)
There are several sites that do rentals and I'm sure someone on here willl soon point you in the right direction.
is one that seems popular.
hi,friends of ours got a good deal with travelpack £990 for 4 weeks staying at the marinha dourada
Presumably that's per head and is well above the £600 Yorkshirepudding had in mind ! Travelpack can get you flights only with Qatar for £510 ish. Southall Travel appears to be the same.
Depending when you want to go, Monarch holidays have some packages that are not too far over budget. 3/12/2009 for 2 weeks
which might be the simple way to get it sorted.
Good luck ! Dave
booked our holiday last night. Two weeks at the Marina Dourada with Thomson. Internet price £660 for two weeks departing 26 Nov. Seems like a decent hotel in the reviews. At least we are not flying with Monarch.
The MD is , IMO, an excellent value for money hotel. Close enough to everything but far enough away too ! Arpora is walkable and has a good selection of eating places. The only time it will be noisy is Saturday night when the market is on, and that's a big if too as last year it failed to happen.
