Broadsword Posted March 4, 2008 Share Posted March 4, 2008 Ok chaps and chappesses, I posted this question elsewhere, but now elsewhere won't talk to me... so lets see what you lot think!! Over lunch I watched a brief excerpt of a programme called 'Don't get done, get Dom' (I think). Well, anyway, what seems to happen is that a little bald crafty cockney type (Dom) assists members of the great unwashed to get good deals on goods and services. It just happened that I watched a bit where he helped a guy haggle with a travel agent to get a 3.5K holiday in Hawaii knocked down to a 'I'm cuttin me own throat' 2.5K... not bad I hear you say! Well here's the question: Have any of us haggled over the cost of a Broads holiday? Is there anything to be gained by saying to your Blakes telephone operator, or the yard concerned 'Well, I really want the holiday, but you're going to have to do better on price'? The guy on the show did it not once but about three times and gradually got the price lowered by a massive Â£1,000, and, all sorts of extras thrown in, like free travel insurance, and entry to the posh lounges at the airports!
