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.

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..

"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.  :(
