This accommodation is in the Manos brochure for 09, which is now part of Thomas Cook. However, it isn't coming up online. Does anybody knowing anything about next year for this one. Looks lovely and all the reviews are excellent. Any clues anybody?

Well Seabreeze aint going bust and do you think Easyjet, Monarch, Thomsonfly and flythomas cook are ok?? I do so get booking because you have to book well in advance for this place its very popular!! XL demise had been on the cards for a long time.

I am going to AG next year and I have booked Direct with the People.
As soon as easyjet Summer 2009 flights are out I will be booking with them.
Like Nigel says and I agree Easyjet, Monarch, Thomsonfly and flythomas cook are pretty safe. (Touching Wood as I say this).

SeaBreeze is one of the most sought after locations in Agios Gordios. I would have no second thoughts about booking with them direct. Yannis will also arrange a taxi transfer from the airport if asked. Do not delay as they are already heavily booked for next year as they get so many repeat guests.

Beautiful setting and always a good welcome. Have you looked on their website? Must agree with the others, book now before someone else takes the booking! We always book direct with Spiros at the Angelica and look for our own flights too.

I rang Manos on Saturday and they advised me that the accommodation is fully booked until October 2009 which is why it isn't showing up. But sounds like what you're saying may be the real reason it's not online.

Can I just say that this TO did this to someone in Zante even to the point of telling people as they got of the plane in Zante that the apartments were full or were deemed unhygenic and were sending them to other Apartments.
Truth being that they had put them in there Brochure and taken bookings for them without TO's and apartments agreeing a contract due to TO's trying to get them to drop their prices.
I mean how low can the Greeks drop their prices. They are paid a pittance now by TO's.
Maybe look at Booking Direct and then keep your eyes open for flights.

Also it depends on the type of contract the accommodation has with a TO. If they are on allotment contract (i.e. TO only pays for rooms used as against guaranteed where rooms are paid for all summer regradless of occupancy) then the TOs often put these allotment properties on stop sale until all the guaranteed properties are full. This means that anyone trying to book the rooms are told they are unavailable and assume they are fully booked when in fact the rooms are available.

Yes, accomm now booked. Flight prices are going up by the day - perhaps I'm pushing them up by looking at them. I read an article in the paper yesterday about the potential lack of flights with the XL demise, indicating that flight prices will go up due to demand for summer 2009. Unless people won't go away with the credit crunch and the tour operators are left with loads of flights. It's all speculation really and we just need to monitor them. If you're prepared to do night flights from Gatwick, they are about £300 cheaper than what I am looking for (day flights from BHX, EMA or MAN). Have looked at the Kiss ones, a bit sceptical about a new operator - the potential for folding. A bit cautious me, perhaps too much!

Prices of holidays and flights are quoted at very high pricea at this time of year. A month ago I looked at a holiday location in July 2009 for a ruby wedding trip.I checked again yesterday and the trip price had dropped by £350.
If you are within reach of Gatwick watch out when EasyJet release their 2009 prices. I missed the best prices this year for a departure on 31st August due to family dithering. Still I got flights for £126 return. I will not make the same mistake next year. Roll on Agios Gordios 2009.

We enquired with The Sea Breeze about keeping our room on at for a late flight at the end of our holiday - we were told we couldn't arrange in advance, but would sort something out when we were out there.
I suspect it depends what rooms you are in (private or TO) and you may be moved to another room, but hopefully you'll manage to get something sorted out.

Just noticed your back, how was your holiday?
We had and are still having beautiful weather so there maybe something in the rumour that you bring rain with you
With regards to booking an extra night if you email them they will let you know if they can as people do book independently with them not just TO's if they can't you stand a good chance of getting a room for one night elsewhere as the main August rush will be over.
