Airport Transfer?
« on: February 19, 2017, 10:49:27 AM »
Any recomendations from forum members for someone local who does Airport Transfers (to Manchester)?

Thanks in advance.  $good$

He was excellent with us and one of the lowest prices.

Dave, as you know we've just come back from being away, and for the first time I switched to Jet Parks to park my own car.
The one I used to use had gone up to nearly £5 a day, but Jet Parks was nearer £3.
So, for a 24 day stay, it was only £67.  Jet Parks is a very efficient operation.
The Jet Parks bus is on a 15 minute loop, and it takes about 5 mins to get you back to your car.
What's not to like?

Nowhere even close to being as exciting as your diverse and interesting travels Hollins.
We like Tenerife at this time of year and following a year of very hard work, (7 days a week from Feb 18th to Nov 15th), we treated ourselves to a 24 night stay at our favourite hotel in south Tenerife.
I was ready for home after the first 2 weeks, mainly due to being able to see the web orders racking up. That gave me a sense that I was letting folk down and should be home.
But, I emailed every customer and received some really kind replies.
So, I have to say that on the last day, I still didn't want to come home!
That's not like me at all.

It's nice to go back to your favourites and when you have travelled a lot with your job previously like you and I did it makes it easier to choose the places you like.
I am always interested in where other people choose though.
Can you sit out on a sun lounger at that time of year in South Tenerife?
I have never been but have often wondered about going.

We have just paid £69 for 10 nights at the multi storey at Manchester using BCP. Roughly the same price as our return ticket to Switzerland but we are lucky that the flights are so reasonable these days.

Not sure I could spend 10 nights in a multi-storey car park, Hollins. Too draughty at this time of year .

You sure can, swimming, sunbathing and stuffing face is the order of the day!
It's about 22 degrees on average, a little breezy some days.... but not a drop of rain until we were checking out.
Any later in the year and I think it would be a little uncomfortably hot for me.

Thanks for the recommendations!  $good$

Trips booked so far for this year are Amsterdam  and Tenerife. Would like to fit in one or two more, time permitting.
