Flights and Travel / Re: Flight cancelled
« Last post by Haybo on Yesterday at 01:20:17 PM »
Oh dear!  looks like you will have to stay until the spring.....

Seriously though - what a nasty thing to happen.  I hear what Chris_S has to say, but you buy in good faith and hope for the best.  As you may know, I have terrible buyers remorse having bought flights with Ryanair in September.......
Flights and Travel / Re: Flight cancelled
« Last post by Chris_S on Yesterday at 10:58:34 AM »
Not a surprise really.

TC and tui are prone to this sort of thing (other operators are available).

You should remember that TC and tui are really package operators with their own airline to fulfil the package transportation costs under their own aegis, thus retaining any profit from those flights.

They then sell surplus space to third parties (like independent travellers and third party package operators) to fill the remaining seats, and maximise their bottom line (and ensure their 'airline' remains profitable).

IF, and it's a big IF, the package operator has low take-up of a particular flight for their packages, they will move the customers onto more convenient (i.e. profitable, by removing the flight costs from their balance sheet) flights, sometimes on different days, but more likely inconvenient (for the passenger) times.

This means the other passengers booked on the flight find their flight cancelled, or moved to a different time (often at night).

Obviously, if you fly with a scheduled airline these conditions do not exist, though there are some airline operators (you guess which) who, if left with a under-utilised flight will claim 'technical difficulties' and move the passengers to a later flight, or something.  Their obligations are somewhat different to the charter flights, hence the discrimination between 'charter' and 'scheduled'.

In the end, if your flight is with a charter company, then these things are more likely than with a scheduled operator (though the caveat applies, this isn't 100% guaranteed - nothing is).

If you monitor far enough in advance your travel arrangements, you will notice that the aforementioned operators have dumped several flight in the last two months, in some cases leaving no flights at all from some airports, or reduced to one day a week.  This, obviously can screw up your accommodation plans where you find your flight is now substantially different from your accommodation booking.

In the end, you pays your money and takes your choice. ???

Places to Visit / Things to Do / Excursions / Kekova Boat trip from Kas
« Last post by kazilla on August 14, 2018, 04:55:27 PM »
I am struggling to find a boat that will do a private charter from Kas to the sunken city of Kekova.  There will be 10/12 adults in September looking for a day trip.  Captain Ali Garlic has quoted 650 euros but I have nothing to compare this with.  We will naturally have to arrange separate transfers to Kas and the trip is also weather permitting.  Any experience of this trip or advice please would be greatly appreciated.

Wouldn’t buy in a falling market. Current consensus seems to be “complete lack of confidence” (in the Turkish lira). If you’d bought £500 worth last Monday you’d have got 3375 lira. Today you’d get 4277 (isbank rates). Still dropping, so next week? Wait till it stabilises or starts going back up.

  • Sezkalkan: Holly - you may be better off starting off a post under 'general discussion' on the right hand side, but generally the weather is great in October - mid 20's with plenty of sunshine. Maybe the odd bit of rain, but doesn't normally last too long.  A little cooler in the evenings, so pack a pashmina.  It seems very safe. All of us Kalkan nutters hvae been coming all year and more than once too!  Go for it
