We are off to England for Christmas and New Year’s. Very very exciting! Dean’s family is in Liverpool so we will spend 5 days with family for the holidays including Boxing Day which I have never celebrated before. Then we’ll be in London for 5 days through New Year’s Day.
I went cray-cray looking for discounted air fare, settling on $1265 x 2 for an outbound flight SFO – Dulles – Manchester and a direct homebound flight from Heathrow to SFO. I feel I failed miserably on booking flights as those fares are unbelievably pricey.
To soothe my inner frugality, I scored on our hotels. I believe Booking.com is the way to go. Across the board, they had super discounted rates. $350 for 5 nights at a centrally-located hotel in Liverpoool. And, wait for it, $960 for 5 nights at a West End hotel in London. Woot-woot! Both reservations have free cancellation so I have the next couple months to find even better deals.
