over the last two years holiday companies blamed the cost of fuel for banging up the prices :(

this year they are 400 plus higher than last year

ie 3 weeks in cuba 4* is over 2000 for one person

rip off Britain :(

are they just taking advantage of the shrinking market ie no Tunisia no sharm etc ?

I really feel for anyone with kids now :(

Its called capitalism gentlemen. The laws of supply and demand rule the roost. Supply is down, no Tunisia, not much in Egypt and people are understandably turning their backs on Turkey. Demand is high as people are feeling a little more confident about the future, hence the price goes up.
If you guys are thinking of strting a revolution then I am behind you, comrades.

Add Kos and Rhodes to that list.

Who in their right mind would want to holiday there?

The only revolution it would take is for people to vote with their feet and stay at home. Kids don't need to go abroad to have fun. They would be just as happy to be on the receiving end of some quality time with parents. What do babies and young kids get out of holidays in the sun? Nothing - it's all about the parents needs, not the kids.

Correct....If Tony re-reads his own post he will discover it contains a vivid clue to how free market economies actually work.

Surely holidays are luxury options if you can afford it. If you can't afford it don't go.

Agree with this 100% , though even a stay at home or a few days in England can cost a fair bit in holiday times. My only thing would be the level of profit the travel comp

I believe Cuba will still be full of 'mature' Canadian women looking for love Gra? Problem is they're looking for young Cuban studs not mature Yorkshiremen ;D

Should have booked through CAMiller tours - still have a week in Maui at the end of August (sleeps 6-8 ) or a week anytime in Cancun (sleeps 4) XD
