The Carrier Bag Shop is a lifesaver for teachers who need to get hold of little present bags and cellophane wrapping for the Christmas Fayre. In fact for all wrapping needs, it's great. I bought 50 small silver bags to give my students a Christmas party bag for less than I would have paid for 20 party bags elsewhere. And they arrived the next day.
We booked a one week half term holiday in Dalyan, Turkey. When we eventually arrived at our hotel, it was great. Couldn't fault it. But before getting there, we had to pay again for the extra leg room seats we had booked and paid TR for but they had neglected to tell the airline. Then we nearly turned around and came back at Dalaman Airport. We'd booked and paid for a private 3 seater taxi and man to greet us but they were nowhere to be seen. In fact, there was no indication of where we should go on arrival, despite our following the TR instructions to the letter and being familiar with the airport. We hung around for 45 minutes waiting for our taxi to show up. Eventually a man arrived, was stunningly rude and we set off in an unmarked car. The rude man was not our driver; presumably he was just cadging a lift home.. We fetched up in a housing estate on the outskirts of Dalaman where we dropped off the rude man and his family. By the time we arrived at the hotel it was all shut up and we had to rouse the owner to check in. The return journey after several confirmatory phone calls was ok except once again it was a shared shuttle rather than the private transport we'd paid for. The crowning insult was when the airport carpark wanted to charge us £121 for parking although again we had paid Travel Republic up front. I don't think they were trying to rip us off; more likely just inefficient...
