Through our partner, Holiday Extras, we can offer car parking at 16 UK airports as well as arranging accommodation and the use of airport lounges.

Hotels

Holiday Extras offer a range of hotels at most UK airports and have been selected for their convenient location as well as the frequency of transfers to the terminal building.

Lounges

Many airports also have lounges available where you can experience an ‘oasis of calm’ away from the hustle and bustle of public areas. Relax in peace and comfort with a cup of tea as you read the daily newspaper or some lounges you can watch the television while you wait for your flight. These services must be booked in advance of your arrival. Our holiday consultants will do this on your behalf and advise costs involved.

Arriving at and departing from your villa

Hotel rooms are usually available from 2pm. Your villa or apartment is normally available from 5pm local time; our office closes at 8pm and cannot always guarantee entry to your accommodation later. If you are arriving late then please inform us well in advance so that we can make alternative arrangements for you.

You should vacate your villa by 10 am in order for the maid to clean and prepare the property for the next guests, however you are asked to leave your villa, as you'd expect to find it. In some areas there will be a charge for villas left in an unsatisfactory condition. Your villa is reserved exclusively for the people named on your holiday confirmation and no other persons are permitted to stay unless approved by us in writing.

Car rental
We can arrange a hire car for you if you choose to fly to your holiday accommodation. For Summer 2003, we are pleased to be working with Europcar, offering an excellent range of cars at competitive rates. Unless stated at time of booking your hire car will be available to collect from the airport on your arrival. Please see the car hire page for more information.

Currency
It's safer to carry most of your money in travellers' cheques, which can be replaced if lost, as long as you have a record of the cheque numbers. Scottish bank notes occasionally cause confusion abroad and it's probably better to take English notes. Euro cheques backed by a banker's Euro cheque card can be cashed at European banks displaying the Euro cheque (EC) symbol. Contact your bank for the latest Euro cheque information. Access (MasterCard), Barclaycard (Visa) and other major credit cards are widely accepted in Spain and can often be used in automated cash dispensers with your usual PIN number. Switch/Delta debit cards may not be accepted in some shops.

    Medical treatment when abroad
    If you are travelling to Europe you should get an E111 certificate which entitles you to reduced cost emergency treatment in EU countries.
