Florida Flights for October Half Term from Scottish Airports

Greetings from Alex at

It’s a busy time of year if you’re planning a Florida holiday during October half term 2013.

United Airlines are dropping seats into the system for their popular flights to Orlando, Tampa and Miami from either Glasgow or Edinburgh.

They are already loaded up to 16th October 2013 so two week itineraries departing on the all-important weekend of 4th October will be complete in the next day or two.

Prices are very good even for the peak dates

For example we have just completed a booking for a family of 7 flying Glasgow to Orlando on 2nd October for a fortnight. A 7 seat minivan fully insured for 2 adult drivers is included

Price is £585 each inclusive of all fees and charges and the booking is on a £75 per person deposit. Balances are due 90 days before departure.

If you need to travel on the weekend (Friday, Saturday or Sunday) add £40 per adult and £30 per child.

You might want to fly direct from Glasgow to Orlando with Virgin – availability is not looking very good outbound on 5th/6th or 12th/13th October and inbound flights are yet to appear. But if you call with the names of the passengers we can keep an eye on the flights and grab your seats as soon as they pop up. If the price is right you can go ahead and make a booking. If it’s too expensive the process has cost nothing.

We can hold options on multiple airlines for you so you have a choice of the best deals on the market

You need to be quick – half term seats are melting away!

Other options include Aberdeen to Orlando with Virgin via Manchester or Inverness to Orlando with Virgin via Gatwick. Just one stop and your bags go straight through.

We also have excellent fares with US Airways from Glasgow to Orlando or Tampa via Philadelphia.

If all else fails we have cheap flights to Florida from Manchester with Virgin. Flights are direct.

You can’t choose a better time to visit Florida than October – Halloween celebrations are in full swing and the weather is absolutely beautiful.

To give you an idea of the sort of holidays we can put together for you once your flights are organised check out the following pages on

Happy Florida holidays!

Florida Holidays 2014 – Easter Florida Holidays 2014

At we spend half the day emailing quotes for florida holidays 2014.

Top of the list as usual are enquiries for Easter 2014 Florida holidays.

We can put together any combo of Easter 2014 flights, vehicles and accommodation but if you’re short on inspiration check out our March 2014 Orlando holiday with Virgin flights.  March flights to Florida are unusually cheap because Easter falls late in April in 2014. Now’s your chance to grab a bargain.

You might be planning a 2014 Florida villa holiday. You can have a look at our February 2014 Orlando villa offer. February half term is the only school holiday of the year in the low season so prices are fantastic. So is the weather especially when compared to the UK’s freezing February skies!

Other Florida 2014 villa holidays: a peak date Easter Orlando villa offer from Glasgow or Edinburgh; a very cheap March 2014 two centre Florida villa holiday with the first week in Orlando and the second in Fort Myers 15 minutes from Sanibel; or, later in the year, a cracking June 2014 Orlando villa holiday which proves that you can holiday on Disney’s doorstep for less than the price of a fortnight in Tenerife.

If you realise you’ve missed the boat for Virgin and BA’s best prices for July and August next year (it’s incredible we know but peak dates sell out in a few days) now’s a good time to book in advance for 2014. Check out our July 2014 and August 2014 bargains.

If your heart is set on Mickey Mouse and the kids are holding you to ransom we’re good at Disney Florida holidays 2014. You don’t need to break the bank either. Have an look at our July 2014 Holiday Inn at Walt Disney World Resort package. At just £885 each preadvance inclusive of Virgin flights, the Disney hotel and a fully insured car you will wonder how we do it. Don’t forget that your holiday is booked with Major Travel with full ATOL protection so your money is safe.

If cheap holidays to Florida in 2014 are your desire look no further. Call or email us from or, for a tailormade quote from your blogger, write direct to Good prices and friendly service from a Florida professional guaranteed

Are you planning your Florida Holiday at Tuscana Resort Orlando?

If so you should have a look at our great new website section.

At nearly all of us have had a holiday at Tuscana in years gone by.

Your blogger has been twice. Once in June two years ago (for the Harry Potter opening). And once again last March when we stayed at Tuscana but drove over to the Gulf Coast most days to fish and go to the beach.

Both fabulous holidays but take it from me the heat in June is phenomenal. I would definitely recommend the winter months when the weather is perfect.

Anyway we all like it at Tuscana. A good looking complex, a great location, beautiful big apartments and it’s cheap! What more could anybody want.

We’ve put together half a dozen Tuscana specials for you. Tuscana Easter, Tuscana Xmas, Tuscana summer. You get the idea.

Have a look at and bag your own Tuscana holiday.

A tip. I flew both times with Virgin. So should you because they really make the effort.

Happy Tuscana holidays!
