Hi,School Holidays normally go very quickly but you do get to choose your date and place before paying so worth a try.
There is the May School Holiday date as well as the August dates.
Recommendations..my favorite place with the children in the UK is Butlins.
We go to Bognor but only because it's the closest to home.
There are also sites outside the UK which could be worth looking at if you have passports and a car.

Hi, I'm sorry if this has been answered elsewhere (have had a look around and couldn't see anything), but as this is the second promotion of the year does that mean there won't be much availability? Or are new dates released for this second promotion? I'm not tied to school holidays and am flexible with dates but we're hoping for a Monday - Friday break in June, July or August.

Parks we're interested in (at the moment, it could change in the next couple weeks) are: Skegness Butlins, Haven Thorpe Park, Haven Marton Mere & Haven Kiln Park. This isn't my first time booking with The Sun but we haven't tried for a Summer break before.

Obviously no one can say for sure, but ar we likely to get one of those parks in those three Summer months? I do have a priority code so that's something.

Thanks for reading and for any help 😊

Unless you've got a car and can get to a port closer to home with a deal France is a bit of a problem.
Reason being all Sun Ferry deals to France are in the South of the country.
If you're interested in abroad the sites in Costa Dorada could be of interest.
If you can do outside school term you could get cheaper flights from a local airport.
You would still need a 5 year passport for the baby though
Might be better looking at sites closer to home,then if you can phone the site to arrange beforehand you'll get an idea if it could be possible  to take the dog away too.

As rew86 said as you have a few dates available and the 4 sites you shouldn't have a problem getting one of your dates and sites.
Best to get in as early as possible though.

Hi,with priority booking you can book more than one holiday,but only the same person/email address.
With Sun+/perks you can book multiple bookings.
Non priority bookers can also book multiple holidays but a day later than the priority/Sun+/perks bookers.

Paris international,the train station is about a 15 minute walk away and takes you to disneyland in one direction and the centre of Paris in the other, so  you could still get the train to Disneyland.
The site does seem basic though.
La Croix looks the best campsite but also the furthest away from Disneyland.

Hi Essex boy, you sound like you know your stuff, thanks!

I'm a priority booker as we've booked holidays through the sun the past few years but this summer I'm thinking of booking a France trip.  I've got two questions.....

How do we choose a 7-day option?

Are we pretty much guaranteed to be able to book the ferry offer too?  I'm worried that if we successfully book the holiday on the date we want we might then be stuffed if we can't book the ferry offer too to go with it.

Thanks!
