Just been taking a look at holidays available in Stoupa in September. Apparently from the 6th September the on-line price doesn't include baggage or transfers and states 'no rep service'! The previous week of 30th August has everything included. I suppose just another case of TC profiteering!

You had me worried for a moment as we have booked for week commencing 13th September. I've just checked the TC site & it does show standard 15Kg baggage, transfers & resort service as part of the remaining deals available (as does our booking details)- perhaps it was a glitch!

Thomas Cook seem to change thier discounts online all the time. We normally visit in July and I find that at some point in May/June they drop the price of the remainder of their July deals and at the same time they remove the free transfers and add a substantial charge, its all smoke and mirrors really.

The difference in baggage and transfers may depend on the chosen property, as Thomas Cook offers a Connect Service on certain properties. This means that you are a seasoned traveller who will not need a welcome meeting or the services of the rep in the resort. However as Stoupa offers both transfers and rep service in the resort should not make any difference to your holiday!!!!!! Don't know about Finikounda as last year there was no rep over there.

On the subject of T.C. I have booked flight only for June, travelling Kalamata to Manchester & return two weeks later. I normally go Easyjet, so this is a first for me with T.C. Being a tight fisted so & so I have kept "Extras" to a minimum & so declined on line check in, which in any event is not available at the Kalamata end anyway. The question is - On the T.C. site, it simply states to take the travel itinery to the aiport - Is this usual T.C. practice & also will this also suffice at Manchester for the return, or is there something else that has to be printed off...I can find no reference.
