Mobile Fantastic summer holiday flight prices

Just booked an amazing deal with Virgin. I decided to try putting Miami as our final destination instead of Orlando. As it turns out the flight does a stopover in Orlando anyway. So, we are getting a direct flight to Orlando for 500 per person. I am paying less for four people then I did for two last year! Worth checking if you are also tied to school holidays. It does mean on the way home we have to drive down to Miami. Quite looking forward to that though! This is from Manchester.

You will have to fly on to Miami though on your first flight or your return will be cancelled .

Do you realise you will still need to get the Orlando-Miami connection or your return flights will be cancelled? Still worthwhile if you got a great price tho!

Yes you will need to fly onto Miami on your first flight but it's not to far away and your flight is still a bargain .

I think that price is still worth flying into Miami then driving back to Orlando.

Have you paid an extra 1200 to fly direct to Orlando rather than drive from Miami ?
Think I would have just driven even though inconvenient .. But everyone's different

1200 pounds or a 3-4 hour drive? That would make a big hole in your villa/park ticket/food costs...
