Mickie's Reviews
Hotel Reviews: 1
I interesting unlike others I usually book flights first, as they seem to vary most whereas accommodation is pretty constant. Mind you that is when staying in a hotel. When we want a particular villa we book before flights are available. Dibb Villa owners and I expect many others are usually OK to have a bit of flexibility in dates until flights are confirmed.

I currently have on going insurance through bank, but when I didnít had done research and pretty much knew who I was going with and booked as soon as first expensive non recoverable cost incurred!

ESTA not too worried about itís either in place or I replace about three months before going if due to expire. Yes would be screwed if ESTA rejected.

Tickets I keep an eye out for a good deposit only deal and book when I see them. Ticket prices donít seem to vary much

We donít bother with airport hotel but things like that airport parking etc I just keep an eye out for better prices and book a couple of months before needed

I want to fly from Manchester next August, so I now just go straight for the wine as current prices are horrendous.

We normally book flights first, then car, villa and insurance ASAP after as flights / prices can be all over the place. Esta can wait till a few months before we go depending on when the last one expires

For 2021 we did choose a really nice villa early then the flights haven't worked out to match so I had to call and move the dates of the villa. Its not ideal as all villa dates weren't available so we'll find somewhere else to stay for the first few days

Holiday insurance

Glass of wine in the beginning, whilst booking and at the end!

I have insurance with my bank, which is handy.

I generally book the villa first (in the past a couple of years in advance )

Then followed by flights/car (fly drive).

Park tickets we booked as we have to say what Disney parks we want to go to (normally we would held off until the new year.

Last but not least Esta if they are out of date.

Good luck
