...all arrived as promised at price and worked fine on holiday.
But Woman who i spoke to to book tickets on phone was pretty rude and pretty unhelpful. She was in blackburn.

5 star 23/04/2014

Posted out promptly, very clear website compared to others

5 star 23/04/2014

Excellent cheap quick service. Fast delivery. well packaged

5 star 22/04/2014

Fast friendly service just what I wanted. Advice given was excellent

4 star 22/04/2014

In all of the below categories you should make it very very clear that your tickets are only for admission. I had to pay $17.00 per day to park at the parks (Disney Water Parks were free)

This amounted to a considerable expenditure which you should have made me aware off. It also made park hopping impossible and therefore took away the advantage of the tickets in the first place. All in all a bad experience financially
