URGENT!! Le Meridien Khao Lak for 50p a night!!
 
Guys,

Check out this thread in the Hotel Deals Forum: http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/showthread.php?t=631551

**FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS IN THREAD 9**

I've just booked 12 nights in August in a 2 bedroom Grand Villa, Private Pool, Beachfront, Plasma Tv 42 Inch, Jacuzzi.

Total price: 13,200 UGX = 3.65GBP :D :D

Hurry, whilst the offers still there......

Looks like this has gone - I can only get it to bring back rates in USD...

Congrats thou!

Raffles Dec 4, 06 1:11 am

That was the easy bit.

Now you've got to find BA award availability!!

I have booked a villa and suite for 6 nights for my parents in Feb.

I have the Royal Suite for 3 months in March. Cost me a ridiculous amount but I can stretch to the 4.

In general, FT history shows that people who book errors for 2-3 days are allowed to keep their bookings, but people who take the p*ss get a full cancellation .......

... and also run the risk of spoiling it for others who've booked a few days if the hotel decies to try and deny all of the stays!

Sorry Raffles/JHM you are totally right. I meant 3 days, as three months would be more than "in March". I was typing something whilst thing about something else at the time I guess! I do though totally agree with your sentiment.

Would rather have had a villa without outdoor pool but that was all there was when I booked for my three days. Happy to share the room on late March if anyone wants half a free suite!

I have indeed read that thread, but it refers to the 3 night Z3R code. I used the Z5R code which I believe meant no free nights, but 25% off all nights when staying for 5 or more :)

To be completely honest though, I'm not convinced any of us will get to keep our bookings. Guess we'll just have to wait and see! Pretty exciting though... :p

Just to follow up on my previous post, here are the terms and conditions for the Z5R rate. Looks like I should be ok :) ^^^

That's good news. I have a 7 day reservation using the same code.

However, I'm not too confident this will be honoured.

ba bob Dec 4, 06 4:34 pm

I have just booked too, 5 nights in March - MCS? if this works, you are a legend!

gallagher Dec 4, 06 5:06 pm

I've got 9 nights (only in a deluxe room I'm afraid^ ) to conicide with my F flight to BKK on the mistake GF fare mentioned at 3 month's ago on FT - thanks MCS (although I looked at the original post yesterday afternoon just after it was posted - I think I was the first to view it) and stupidly thought it was a non-starter and didn't look back until this evening - just goes to show you can't take your eyes of FT for a minute:rolleyes:

thanks

Am I the only one who thinks that trying to take advantage of a ridiculously obvious data-entry error is somewhat pathetic? I mean, it's a bit of a giggle I grant you, but no doubt there'll be people up in arms (or in court) when Starwood tries to ask the not unreasonable question: "why would we, an American company, price hotel rates in Thailand in Ugandan Shillings?"

What's happened to us?
