When it’s over £700 to travel with a car for a family to the iom for a week I’m not surprised people look elsewhere or holiday within the UK. 

I cant see the state owned racket reducing these fares anytime soon and undoubtedly will in turn increase fares off the island. Another stealth tax. 

2 adults plus two children travelling Monday and return the following Monday £311 (plus car) end of July next year

Maybe but Saturday 20 July for a week for 2 adults + 2 children + car is £782 return from Liverpool.  You can always find cheaper alternatives but many families don't have the flexibility and those looking for self-catering accommodation (as families often are) are usually obliged to stay Saturday to Saturday.

Thank you Roger. I did Sat to Sat first week in August. Because it’s school holidays and that’s when people have holidays and sat to sat because that’s a normal working week for holiday time off. 

But id expect that response from that troll.

Yep, Neil will have spent a good 4 hours online trying every option just so he could find one cheaper than the one you mentioned just so he could come back on here and start a pointless argument about it with you for a few hours.

I may be wrong but I sense some discord between the Sultan and Neil if one says black the other white.    Have their paths crossed in an earlier  existence?

Nah, it's between Neil and everyone not totally off their faces.

@dilligaf

Would you mind sticking to the same avatar?

I just get used to picking up your posts amongst all the dross and you go and change it to something else yet again!

It's like a strung-out adolescent constantly having an identity crisis!

Just stick to that nice cartoon Aussie with the corks in the hat.

Thanks.

No intention at all. It took me all. Of five minutes to find an alternative. Just get a little fed up of people having a go at the SP all the time purely because they are too lazy to look for alternative prices

There are lots of people on these forums sick of Neil’s pointless and empty-headed arguing in every thread.
