The Manage My booking section on the MH website, is only for bookings made directly on their website.

For seats etc, you'll need to call MH or ebookers.

This is a lovely deal. Managed to price it all up to around 1.5k for the Singapore GP in September. That was including a junior suite with lounge and breakfast for three nights, in a nice looking 4.5* close to the circuit...

Pity I have no friends, or at least, I have no freinds that can afford a weekend in SG. 😂

Is there an easy way to search for fares to DPS (on ebookers), rather than having to go through the hotel selection step first, then to find that there is "no availability" for flights when you select one of the hostels?

you may check the flights on GF first, if price for your selected dates is approx 1500-1600, then you move over to ebooker to book with a hotel packaged together to reduce the price as to OP stated.

Thank you ^, but I cannot get any prices for DPS on GF in the range you specify - all are 1,800+ :(

Unfortunately, I guess you have to play with the dates on ebooker one by one then, get yourself a beer/popcorn handy :)

Do you have access to EF? If so, it should work as long as you find Z availability on the L/H portion. S/H seem to book into C.

For reference: I had somewhat buyers remorse on the account of QR supposedly launching a great sale in a few days time.

I called Expedia.co.uk who I booked through:

a) absolutely no changes or refunds permitted
b) Expedia.co.uk only allows refunds day of purchase, not within 24 hours. Expedia.com offers within 24 hours
c) As mentioned previously upthread, it appears as if YQ is omitted - cash refund of the taxes would have been ca 220.

I did the Singapore GP a couple of years ago, my spending was somewhat helped out by BA16 going tech on the day after the race, 600 back, thank you very much.

Yes, I have EF. And the longhauls have plenty of Z availability, but still no luck. This one doesn't like me for some reason! :)

That's weird. I booked BKK and that to me was the killer for availability. What dates you looking at?

Anything really - August, September, October. What I have found is that departing on a Saturday returning on a Sunday is giving better prices.
