Just a warning in case you think you are seeing things or you think your travel agent is tryimng to rip you off!!
On Thomson's flight website, they are no longer accepting deposits for flight bookings for 2006; payments have to be made in full when you book!
Even booking through a travel agent like us they have increased the flight-only deposit from £60.00 per person to a crazy £130.00 per person for 2006. In many cases on the bookings I have done so far, that can be more than 50% of the total cost up front and some people aren't travelling for over a year! Total rip-off.
We are all in in arms over it in our trade press and switch selling to other charter flights where the deposits are as low as £40.00 per person, but the problem is if you want a Tuesday, it is only Thomsons. If you want a Friday at least there are other charter carriers.
