Olympic Holidays

Great singles deals

I use Olympic hols a lot as they so often have great deals for solo travellers.
I have just returned from an all/inc week in Egypt which cost very little more than I would have paid for a flight only. it was amazing value for money.
Yes, you have to keep checking the website out to catch the deals, and move fast to book when you find them, but they pop up more frequently on Olympic than any other holiday company. I have yet to regret grabbing a cheapie from Olympic Holidays.

Very good - til you try adding a transfer!

I hope that TR read this cos IMO it's a fault on the website, or maybe I missed something, somehow.
Looking for, choosing, and booking hotels is very easy. No criticism there. Everything was going well with my booking, until......

I realised I needed a transfer from the airport. Thinking I had somehow missed this option, I went back through the pages but did not find it. I then clicked on transfers and went through the motions, hoping that TR's site would link it with my hotel booking, which I had completed all bar the payment. Not so, and all the info I had already entered was gone. Had to go right through the hotel booking again, and after payment had to do the whole rigmarole yet again to book my transfer separately. What a pain in the a**e, just to pay an extra £2.97!!
And yes, that really was the price of my shuttle transfer (return) from Sharm airport to Nabq Bay.!
I hope that price is not too good to be true. In fact fingers crossed for the whole self-assembled holiday as not done it this way before.
