Other comments Very convenient to be met when both going and returning from holiday good to be right outside departure doors and picked up straight outside in a warm car in the winter months. Quicker and more efficient. Less hassle then getting on a park and ride bus and very very good value for money. Such a great way to go! What a start to the holiday! No driving past the airport for 10 miles humping cases onto a bus ride back to airport...then repeat the exercise on way home when tired and fed up! It's fantastic... Seemed a lot easier than the other methods and the price was very similar if it had been more expensive I probably would have put up with the extra hassle. Good price used before efficient polite helpful staff No stressful car park search or bus wait.
