Always fly from Manchester. Flight prices will drop again - usually end of August or mid September and then again early December. Set up an alert from Skyscanner and check each day - never paid more than 420 each for end of May / early June.

Seems to be the case and what we have always done too.

With kids, I prefer to pay the extra to go from Manchester rather than the nightmare car journey to Glasgow or Gatwick. Both these airports have a terrible road network which could affect your onward journey

Constant checking of sky scanner will usually find a decent price eventually.

I have flown down and back to Gatwick from Manchester. It wasnt ideal but it was the best option available to me on the dates I wanted. The prices werent bad at all and virgin sorted it all for me

Our May 2020 flights (2nd-16th) with virgin MAN-MCO have just massive dropped in price this week (from 900 to 586 each for 2A) so if you can hold your nerve in the next few weeks you might get lucky.

I was gutted when I saw it as I half-panic bought as there werent many seats left but we wanted premium both ways which thankfully hasnt gone down to what we managed to get on skyscanner! Like other have said Id rather pay a little more and not have the stress of travelling far to get to the airport but if travelling meant we got to go then thats better than not going at all 😊Good luck with your hunting!

We live in Cumbria and fly a lot from LHR but return to Manchester.

3.5 hour train journey to Euston, blackberry car (30) to premier inn on Bath Road (but have T4 PI booked for next year as a change 30). Next day, flight to wherever, Miami, LA, Washington.

Usually return mco-man then train back home as we would never do that drive again, too dangerous as DH does not sleep on the flight. I may snooze a little but will be asleep within minutes of getting in car so no help to DH 😪

With Virgin you pay top dollar. Same date and airport with Thomas Cook is 390!

Nobody surely pays 900 economy off peak?

Ive often wondered if first timers have just booked without researching but then if they can afford it theyve got more money than me 🙃 personally I wont fly with Thomas cook as had bad experiences previous and said I wouldnt fly with them again but then thats my choice and my money

Edit: I just had a quick mooch on skyscanner and TC premium is only 50 less than what we paid with virgin and were on the early flight so Im definitely happy to be at the magic a bit sooner for 50 😁
