1- the difference is mainly that if you buy a package rather than book it yourself you are covered by ABTA and ATOL bonding. These days most things are paid for seperately in a package, incl transfer etc. They will give you a 'free welcome meeting' where you might get a voucher for a free meal, but they are jut trying to sell you things.

2-Flex tickets and DC, Undercovertourist.com

3- no. Not for me as most places on this card are low end and I don't eat there. Some places have kids eat free on certain days w/o paying for it.

4- travelsupermarket.com for a comparison

I don't know if it will make a difference to your decision about DC but your 5 yr old won't be able to do the actual dolphin swim , you need to be 6 or over to do that section of the day.

Hi Chelly,

Just an idea on your travel insurance, check your Bank account's "included extras". Some accounts have travel insurance already included.

We bank with LTSB and our account's travel insurance also covers other members of our family holidaying with us. One holiday we included our nephew to be covered and another year a foster child was covered both at no extra charge.

If not the Post Office is quite competatively priced.
