We have just booked our flights to London so over the next few months we shall be getting excited, nervous and hearing lots of advice from family and friends. For us it is a chance to catch up with our son, currently working/living in the UK, and do a bit of looking around as well as seeing some of my relatives. We shall also travel to Europe hoping to see Rome and some other destinations still to figure out.
We ended up going through the local Flight Centre office and found the travel consultant to be very helpful and incredibly enthusiastic. These days it is easy to find flights on the internet and if you know what you are looking for and how to go about things then you could get better deals, flights and connections but for us novices it is beneficial to use the professionals that are trained for these arrangements. Of course you then have someone to blame if it all goes “pear shaped’.
