Yeah, but you can't buy one for €119, you have to buy two minimum - there isn't even an option to pay a single room supplement.

T&Cs say For 2 night stays, you will have a minimum of 40 hours at the destination, for 3 night stays, you will have a minimum of 60 hours at the destination.

Again, it's a bit vague whether that 40 hours starts as soon as the plane lands, or when you arrive at the hotel reception, but either way it doesn't really give you enough info to be able to plan things properly. I'd be worried that it'd be a late evening flight on both legs, so you'd arrive late, get one full day, then have to check out of the hotel at 11am and spend the rest of the day being in "going home" mode.

Nah, not for me.

I'd never deal with this crowd again. They sell vouchers as they are not regulated by any current Irish law. We bought a voucher to use recently, ended up not being able to use within window due to serious illness at the time, after the first 14 days they will offer no refund or exchange only points for their site. These point can only be used off 15% of the cost of other vouchers. In other words spend over 1k to get your original voucher value back. It's a total racket.

Christ 20 hours both ways on a plane for 1 week in Thailand.

And the days your flying are counted so 5 days, not a hope

You are guaranteed 60hrs at location on the 3 night trip which I’m sure starts when wheels touch down then ends when wheels up. Factoring in travel time in NYC for example, time you need to be in the airport at before departure the 60 hours is closer early 50’s

Then the opera house hotel is in the Bronx. And what’s the bet you’ll be given that hotel not the one on E 40th. Who the fcuk wants to go to NYC and be dumped in the Bronx.
