Thank you for your post, the cost difference is predominantly in the exchange rate. For 2009 all operators had bought forward at a very positive rate against the dollar when it was approximately $2 to the UK Pound. Buying forward for 2010 they would have been positioned at $1.4 to $1.5 to the UK Pound. Either way there is a difference of approx 25% on the dollar content of 2010 vacations from the UK, this includes the accommodation, aircraft fuel and departure tax elements of the vacation. Prices have gone up, unfortunately this is a fact of life with exchange rates and oil prices but I can assure you that Couples Resorts prices have not increased from Europe for 2010 and we still remain very competitive and terrific value for money against our competitors.
Our number in the UK for all Guests wishing to talk to us on this or any other matter is 01582 794 420. We look forward to hearing from you soon..!
