As the place of golf, tennis, nearby sunny beaches, but also… Disney, Orlando is a key US destination for adults, children, and adults who behave like children. Since zero of those things are usually cheap, securing round trip flights with meals, drinks and entertainment for a mere £240 per person is a total bargain. Here’s how to book one for yourself…
Virgin Atlantic’s big January sale is in the final days, and the airline just dropped Orlando flights even lower. That means you can fly round trip from London for just £240 return, and Manchester is only about £75 more. True bargains, indeed.
These Virgin flights don’t come with a checked bag – but you do still get a full sized carry on and a personal item, which is more than enough. Learn to pack better, if you can. The flights do however still include drinks, booze, meals and even afternoon tea from Eric Lanlard, aka Cake-Boy.
The Dates You Can Travel
These bargains are only available in late February, early March and then November, but similar prices are available on most dates outside of peak summer. Getting the lowest prices is easy, but you’ll need to stay at least four nights to get them.
You can stay much longer than four nights, but you’ll need to stay at least that long to pull up these prices. Virgin Atlantic actually makes low fares easy to find if you press “flexible dates” on booking.
When a family of four can fly long haul round trip for under £1000, that’s a bargain. Better yet, you can use some Virgin Miles to lower the prices further, if you wish. The best way to book these flights is direct with Virgin Atlantic on their website here, or via online travel agencies like Skyscanner here.
These fares won’t last long and availability is drying up fast, so if you want in – get in sooner than later. All USA flights allow 24 hours from the time of booking to cancel risk free for a full refund, so book first and cancel within 24 hours if you need to. It’s better than missing out if you decide you want them and they’re already gone…
