Wind ups

We got a phone call from our travel company the other day advising us that they are building a new hotel close to the one we go to in Tenerife, they said there was some noise from the building work. We already knew because we keep in touch with the hotels web site. Anyway they offered us a choice of other hotels but we decided to stick to the one we usually visit. Going back on the web, a few people were saying they were offered a £140 reduction for remaining in the hotel rather than change. So being a bit miffed at not getting this offer we phoned the company, they assured us they had not offered anyone a reduction and it turned out to be a hoax, once one person posted they had got this reduction others piled in with even greater reductions winding people up. I guess some people just cant resist a wind up. :wink:

Pity it wasn't true, although 140 pound would be a huge reduction.

A 140 quid reduction is a little unrealistic

but Pilot you went for it though like a true pensioner :P :P

Where do you stay in Tenerife / Los Christianos or Americas........ Years ago we stayed in Americas at the Conquistador. in JANUARY . I couldn't understand why we were all walking round in t shirts and shorts and all the locals were in Anoraks woolly hats and scarves. 25 Centigrade is too cold for them it's their winter. We were sweltering.
