Christmas Travel

Here at Fare Wise Travel we have lots of ideas for your perfect break this winter.

Lapland Dreams

There is still time to plan a trip to take your little ones or your grand children to Lapland!

There is only a small window of eight weeks in the year that Father Christmas allows guests to visit him and as most children have lost the magic of Christmas innocence by secondary school, that leaves only 22 months of their life that they can see the elves, go sledging and meet the magical Father Christmas. That’s not long!

So book the dream, and see the look of glee on their faces just call us at Fare Wise Travel 01488 68 68 58 and we can make those Lapland dreams come true.

And finally, a few general tips, wherever you happen to be off to…

Check-in early – absolute minimum is three hours prior to departure of a long-haul flight and two hours for short-haul or domestic.

Consider pre-booking an airport lounge – well worth it to start your trip in a quieter space generally with complimentary food, drink and newspapers.

Allow plenty of time for your journey to the airport. The roads can be busy (after all, yours won’t be the only car heading in that direction) and we all know how treacherous winter roads can be. Better to arrive an hour early than an hour late.

Be prepared for long queues at check-in and security – if you find standing for long periods difficult pre-book airport assistance (generally a free service provided by the airport or airline)

Do not wrap presents – take the paper with you but leave the wrapping until you arrive as security may well insist that they see inside.

Do not take Christmas crackers as most airlines will confiscate them.

Pre-book airport and cruise parking – it’s so much cheaper and there is nothing worse for already frazzled nerves than arriving at the car park to find it is full and the only option is the extortionate short stay parking.

If you are travelling to colder climes take layers – indoors is usually over-heated and outdoors much colder than here. Similarly if you are going tropical don’t forget that coming back to Britain in early January wearing shorts and flip-flops will be to risk hyperthermia.

Ensure that all travel documents and tickets are easily accessible and checked well before you leave home. Take copies of passports, insurance policies and car documents and leave them with someone you trust at home.
