    Did you do the 5 location thing ... says we don't find out until the end of February (apart from the fact we want February half term which is before then, ha!)

    I had problems with the 'must have 5 dates' as we can only go half term cos of taking kids out of school. Hopefully we will get something for that week of the 5 places we put down.

    I've booked before so i get a special reference number and can book online. So just put in some locations and dates and then it gives me a holiday and I can ask it to search again or book it

    I went to Butlins Bognor on one of those Sun deals 13 years ago and it was good. My friend went to a Frnach campsite last summer with them and said it was great.

    We usually do it but didn't collect enough tokens grrrrrr. I have the special online code too. I dodn't think there were any dates in February available? Most of the parks don't open until March

    There are a few February ones, but not many! Luckily some in the area we wanted.

    I've been doing them for the past 3 years. Booked 4 nights away at the end of June (£15 per person). Chris finishes his exams the week before so that was the only time we could go. We're going to Presthaven again :)rolleyes:) always seems to be Wales 'cos it's easy for me to drive there and the kids won't try anywhere else lol! :D

    Too early I know but I am going to ring them later to find out if we got a break so I can let the kids know!

    Whenever I've booked by post they've sent my forms back pretty quickly. I think they say you have to wait until the end of Feb because they know they'll have to send out thousands of bookings etc. :D

    I've sent a booking by post but heard nothing yet. But it is as Mrs Depp says and I've always had replies back quickly. And when you think of how many applications that are dealing with I am impressed with their speed

    Apparently, there weren't any in the Norfolk/Suffolk areas that open in February - pity the dates weren't mentioned in the paper!! Aaaargh! We didn't get anything - apart from disapppointed kids! :cry::mad:

    You can check the parks opening dates by going to the websites (eg, Haven, Parkdean etc). Most don't open til March. Did you get anything else or was that the only area you wanted?
