In addition to scheduled flights, we can also offer you charter flights, often from your local airport to the most convenient airport for your chosen holiday. We usually include a hire-car which you really need for most destinations in order to explore properly and as most of our hotels are situated in countrified areas. You can tour France in this way, perhaps collecting your car at one airport and returning it to another.
