Off on my holidays – and yes booked with a travel agent – after 21 years in travel I still have a huge loyalty and being a family man (not married but been dating 17 years) I have to go up an aisle one day – and that is of course and aircraft! I have booked private transfers with my days of waiting at an airport in 35 degree heat with Sharon and my two year old Amelia well and truly over and irrespective of working for Holidaytaxis a private transfer is a definite must not an extra!! Anyway only away for a short week but thought I would leave you with a few true facts and queries to ponder over ……
