I've used freetime for "Deals" with the old clubcard vouchers, have been to Drusillas Zoo Park, Lego Land and London Zoo, and made massive savings on the entry to these places everytime ie. Lego Land = 2 Adults, 2 Children and a Baby entry price =£86.00 , Clubcard vouchers sent to freetime £21.50 = entry for the above. Saving 75%.

SCOOTERBOY, thats why you can buy tesco clubcard vouchers on e-bay, four times the face value!

I've used Freetime regularly (for the vast number of holidays I have each year, being a grossly overpaid manager!!), & they're great. Always got cheaper than whatever I found on the internet & the staff are really helpful. Can't recommend it enough.

If you need a namebadge to know who I am, I don't need to know you.

Calm down dear it's only a commercial.

I'm somewhat of a bullshi**er myself, but occasionally I enjoy listening to an expert...Please carry on.

I don't use the table Always at work at the mo as in middle of refit 200 hours short on depts and got a whole 20 hours overtine to 'help' cover which just about covers the time i spend on checkout doing relief calls.
Sorry you asked now? feels good to have a rant though

If u get an email quote from Tesco Travel Agent then take in to Going Places, they will beat it- so you get to buy your hol off a real person AND pay less. But they don't do all the tour ops and all the brochures from the tour ops they do..

I saved my vouchers and got 2 annual passes for Tussauds, a collegue then sent of for 2 more for me and i paid her the £40 which gave us 4 annual passes. We then went on a four week holiday to the south of England using the passes and saved a lot of money and the kids enjoyed the theme parks. We even went back in the oct hols and plan again for easter and the summer before the passes run out. Alton Towers alone would have cost £80 for one day, we go for two days at a time so got our money back no problem. The other good vouchers are the days out ones the kids loved the open topped bus around London and it only cost me £2!!!

Saved my vouchers for MFI deal tokens, bought a new sofa (my first EVER brand new bit of furniture, which is probably why I am SOOOO excited about it) and it only cost me £9.

"Did you know that Tesco Freetime offers you 10% off the tour operators' lowest price on a huge range of holidays year round?" (Taken from the peopleattesco site.)

Not strictly true.  :o

I rang Tesco freetime to get a price for a holiday. It was dearer  :(  I asked "how can that be with the promised 10%?" Reply "Because we can only give 10% off the brochure price, not off the travel company's internet price, we can't better that".

So that means Tesco are not giving employee's ANY benefit. The 10% discount is not actually an employee discount. Go to any travel agent with a brochure price and they will better it. So Tesco Freetime is just the same as any other travel agent, don't let them fool you into believing its a "staff benefit" when booking a holiday from any of the operators they list. They are not giving you anything that you could not get yourself, by booking direct online. In fact, as I found, I could actually get it cheaper that way.  :(

The only 'benefit' I got was a £5 off furniture stuff when you spend £20" thats pretty good "IF I f**kING SHOPPED AT TESCO"

Its better to have it and not need it then need it but not have it!
