i've used www.airline-network.co.uk in the past and found their rates pretty reasonable.

never tried www.easyrentacar.com but i spose it's worth a shot.

Automatic 1 class upgrade with Avis and a BA executive club card

Always book an automatic car in the lowest bracket and you will always get 2 or 3 group upgardes as there are no group A's available.....

Ok let me know afterwards as when we visit home will need to arrive in Gatwick and then zoom up to Chester, but have been told by a travel agent that we can dump the car and fly out of Manchester for no extra cost ??

I don't blame you .. I resent the prices you get charged for car hire.

if you speak to Naz at holiday autos though he will tell which deal is the best around - like including with airfares etc and if you tell him that you a member of the Desert Wives you will get a discount as well - AA get Mrs AA to do it. there is a special rate for us on his web or at least there was.

i don't understand why you resent it...surely it's the same with airfares and any other service etc...supply and demand
