Last year I booked my outgoing June flight on 10 September and the July return on 22 October, but their flight release schedule is currently saying that early summer flights won't be released until October and end of June onwards until a very vague "Autumn 2016"! I wonder if they've delayed releasing their prices for next year because of the currency fluctuations caused by Brexit?
I wasn't lost - I was just taking an interesting detour!

We too are watching the flight release for early June 2017. Last year we booked about now. The website says early October. My friend telephoned Easyjet re flights from Bristol for 2017. They were vague as to whether they are even flying from Bristol in 2017 😱. Can't see it, but a concern for our friends.   Easyjet informed her the flights will be released in late October. We are looking from LGW and keep looking.

Not sure if Brexit is the reason, but definitely cautious somewhere along the line!

Thanks Elaine. Keep checking on here for a heads up for flight releases. We went June this year but next year we are booked for July. I guess they'll be out a bit later. We going away few days in October half term and worrying I will miss the summer flights coming out. I enjoy all the news and posts still on this forum even though its a lot quieter now. Audrey

The website says that flights for 26/6 - 10/9 will be released in early November and 11/9 - 28/10 sometime in December. We go in June, but come back in July, so we have to book our return flights separately from the outbound ones

The schedule release dates don't seem to be listed on their main menu (I had to go into their site map to find them) so - here's a link

Just booked outbound but my return date not available as yet. Elaine you seem to be getting notifications before me so if you are advised of actual release date a 'heads up' would be much appreciated.

Just booked for our friend - outbound from Newcastle mid June. Like you Sue, waiting for the early July ones to be released so we can get her home  LOL

Well I was up early this morning and sitting at my pc refreshing my browser every couple of minutes from 05:55! Didn't have to wait too long for the Manchester flights to get uploaded and our outbound cost was a couple of quid cheaper than we paid for the same flight this year

The website still says early November for our July returns, so I'm expecting them to release a firm date for them in about 3 - 4 weeks and I'll post it here as soon as I see it. I don't recall getting any advance notification Sue, I just keep a regular watch on both the website and their facebook page. I actually got an email off them this morning advising me that the spring flights were on sale - about 2 hours after I'd already booked!

Incidentally, after I booked I went on to both Jet2 and Ryanair to compare prices. Ryanair were almost 50% dearer and Jet2 were more than double the price of EasyJet, so it was well worth the wait! I reckon by the time we've booked our returns we'll have saved the cost of a couple of very good nights out

Yep :-) it was a one-off in 2007 and we have done it every year since. Its hard to think about being there without my baby now.

I do hope the £:€ improves though as the ferry, tolls and and fuel costs overland are a bit pricey, though to be fair, Paxos will always be worth it (I hope) 

Roll on June 17.
Big smile

Got my return flights. Quite a bit more expensive than the outbound, but I suppose that's partly because they quote in Euros for journeys starting in Corfu and we know what's happened to the Euro lately

Booked at 6:29 GMT just as the schedule was released for our friend Jean, she will be pleased 😎 For the return flight to Newcastle it was a bit cheaper than her outbound flight!
Good flight times and prices for Sunday's it seems.

Booked for my wife and I with the two children (might as well be classed as adults for the difference in price mind), and we are flying from Manchester on 22nd July and flying back 5th August with great flight times. Bit more than I wanted to pay at £1017 all in, but we expected it due to school hols and the value of sterling. Still that's May and July hols booked now so better start saving

6? I stayed up late but nothing was there, so went to bed. Ended up booking at 10. Bit more than I was hoping for but had to stick to either Monday or Friday (the typical charter transfer days) to get a good price on accommodation - which has gone up. Then add on all the extras for me for a fortnight (2 x legroom, missed flight cover, 23kg bags)...

Booking 'accommodation only' on Olympic gave me a good-ish price for 14 nights in Sidari at the Monika (great place) but that's up by about 1/3 on last year. At least this year the website lets you book accommodation only without throwing a wobbly.

If you can get reasonably priced flights to fit the booking period then it's cheaper than booking with a lot of places directly, at least up until mid-July, when the charters start to hike their prices a lot. Last year I even shortened the trip to 12 days and it still worked out cheaper booking 14 days accommodation. I'm not sure that's still the case this year though.

Paying extra for the luggage was a bit of a no-brainer this year, as the more sun lotion and pasta'n'sauce from ASDA I can take with me the more Euros I won't be blowing on the basics at tourist prices. And a second trip this year is right off the cards, unfortunately.
