I've now got a fekkn dilemma as my golf outing to Turkey clashes with Benidorm.

Looking for a booking expert to help me out here(that's you Marky).

I'm booked for Benidorm Tuesday 12th to Saturday 16th March 2019 BUT my golf outing (not yet booked but almost 100% certain of the dates) is gonna be Friday 15th March to Friday 22nd March.

Not really a problem if I'd booked myself as I would just have to cut Benidorm short, but I've now got a mate booked and want to leave him on his tod for the least possible time.

So, Cliff Notes, I need to get from Alicante to Antalya to arrive Saturday morning 16th latest or Alicante to Edinburgh to leave Benidorm as late as possible on the Thursday night 14th to arrive in Edinburgh before 8am(my flight leaves 10.30am).

Willing to go on 2 flights as I can't make it direct without leaving early on the thursday from Benidorm.

I've had a look at usual sites I use but either can't arrive back in Edinburgh in time or the prices are fekkn crazy.

Just had a look on Skyscanner, and it looks like your best bet is flying home a day early, or getting to the golf thing a bit late.

Or you can fly back from Alicante on Friday lunchtime (£50), and get back to Edinburgh just after 2pm.

My flight to Antalya is at 10.30am from Edinburgh on Friday 15th Mark so second part is a no-go.

Think I might just have to fly back to Edinburgh on Thursday night but that means the mate is on his jack jones for almost two full days in Benidorm.

Will have a full look at the weekend when I have more time. Still going to Benidorm just a two and a half day trip instead of the 4 and a half I thought lol.

Think most people will be there until the Saturday, so he hasn't really got to worry about being on his own.

Also read on their website that if you book through them they will give you room for 12% less than the best offer you can find (if ime reading it right)
It also says on their site.if you stay for minimum 5 nights.they give you a free ticket to benidorm palace ( which normally consists of a meal and a show)

Not a racing fan, but this is starting to look like a bit of a giggle. I've got a business in Cheltenham and I could not get near it this year for race-goers. Looks like the nearest I might get to it is errrrr, Benidorm!

Dougie,

You should get a list up, on your original post, of those going and/or thinking of going.

Hahaha, you've not met my mate after a few bevvies Mark. Think of Brexit Billy and you're on the right tracks lol. :help: :help:

Mind you he's a window cleaner and loves a bet on the horses so him and Dougie can talk ten pails of pish to each other 8-)

Sounds good to me mate. I’m not in the least interested in racing but I like a few beers in the sun and this looks like a good excuse.

I'm not going to know until late February if I can make it, but very unlikely I will, with the work I've taken on since October.

At least you won't have to worry about me mowing one of you down in the streets of Benidorm if I don't...

Gutting, but can't be helped, unless I wanted to cut Vegas by a week!

Just back after 4 days in Acuarium II Apartments with my sister and she thought the apartments were great, In case anyone wants to get them booked, they are very cheap but €200 deposit required.

Had a great time and spent a fair bit in the bookies(not many winners) and also a couple of nights in the Flash Voices Karaoke Bar and the Flash Hotel bar (singers/comedians etc on).

How many have we got confirmed now, about 16 by the looks of it so should be a good laugh.

I did speak to the owner of the Gallowgate bar/bookies and he says he is trying to buy Uncle Ped's bar and make it a bookies as well in time for Cheltenham. This bar is about 200 yards from your Hotel Dougie so could be handy if it happens.

I was going to fly out Monday, and back on the Saturday.

St Paddy's Day on the Saturday, so avoid all the carnage.

Where's the half board at Doug, as in which hotel? Is it only from Gatwick or they cater for us northern monkeys from Manchester?
