Hopefully they will be cheap at first but last year that didn't seem to happen?

Does anyone know what time they were released and did you have to do the usual faff of having to scroll forward until they appeared?

On martins money he talks about a sneaky way of bagging even cheaper flights by booking a Flexi fare with easyJet. As well as including baggage, speedy boarding etc they also are free to change the date and time for up to 3 weeks. So for instance if you booked two weeks before school hols you could theoretically change to the actual school hol dates for no extra cost. I think that's what it means haha

I bought our tickets just before 0700h when the flights appeared. Flexi tickets look appealing, but they didn't come up as an option from Bristol. Will be buying the return tickets next Wednesday.

Jo, total cost was 193. Two of us, two cases, 20k and 23k. That's around 30.00 cheaper than last year. Now just waiting to see about the return release next week!

Jo- The flights came on at 05.30am by doing the scrolling but were all through normally at 06.00am .
The flexi fares are only usually available about 3 months before departure ,and the prices of them have got higher,also normal prices will have increased by then,you have to wait 24 hours after purchase to change them and do check if flights are not then full.Think they have started pricing flexi tickets higher after Martin Lewis advertised the trick haha.
