Absolutely. We've been haggling with the travel agents for the last couple of weeks and went to book a P&O cruise yesterday for next year only to find the price had increased due to a fuel surcharge being slapped on of £100 per person. Damn! We then went back to the travel agent who gave us the next best price and they didn't add the fuel surcharge on! Best advice I can give is to shop around and be quick (well quicker than us anyway!).
