They also said that although flights are not showing on their site for 24th it may be that Cosmos have chartered the plane for that day and it's not on sale for TCook! It is ONE complete joke. NOBODY can give me a definate answer so we can't book yet! BOOOOO
Hi, I know what your saying about costs, but honestly, I'll NEVER fly with TC again after this holiday...we booked our flights and accommodation seperately, but the problems we've had with TC have been unbelievable...even at the airport it was a complete JOKE!! We flew long haul with First Choice last year and will do so for future long hauls...they were fab....the inflight facilities were fantastic and we were in the standard class...we flew to Mexico Premier class and the inflight facilities were no where near as good as the standard class First Choice offered!!
When it comes to insurance, you can get travel insurance that covers independant travellers...costs a wee bit more, but worth every penny.
Something some people don't realise as well, is travel agents don't have access to all room options hotels have...for example, booking through a TA for moon palace, you get the option of a king bed or 2x double beds....moon palace has 3 sections....Thomas Cook only have insurance for guests to stay at the Sunrise side....we booked indepedently and got a concierge room at the Nicuz side just next to the new side, Moon Grand. We do plan on going back to moon palace, and when we do, will 100% book independantly again.
It does cost more, but its your wedding/honeymoon...and if your like us, you want it to be perfect...with no regrets.
Hope i didn't go on too much there...just trying to spread my thoughts as an old wifey now!lol
