Flights from non-London airports
Post: #21
I am going on my first Just You holiday to the Costa de la Luz on 12 June. There are only two holidays leaving from Glasgow Airport which would probably make me think twice about booking with Just You again. Would it be possible book my own flights in the future? I have heard that Just You will take £150.00off the price of the holiday and allow me to book my own flights. It would be wonderful if more flights were made available from Glasgow.

I recently travelled from Manchester to Prague on the city break. We had to pay a supplement for not travelling from Heathrow. We got there in the evening of the tuesday and were scheduled to leave on the friday evening. Travellers from Heathrow had arrived first thing that morning but were due to leave AFTER us on the friday night. Therefore, they got a day longer than us AND we paid more!!
I realise this will be due to matching flight times, but it does seem unfair!

I think the idea of having a Manchester and a Heathrow trip would be good, as all travellers would arrive together.
This would also save the rep from to-ing and fro-ing back and forth to the airport to meet different groups. Im just not sure you would always get enough to fill a trip if you relied on passengers at one of the northern airports though, which is probably why things are arranged as they are.

Hi there,

We do offer a make your own way option on some of our holidays where the transfer to the first hotel is nice and straight forward. I would recommend connecting flights personally, then you will be with the group on the main flight as well. Connecting at Heathrow for example is so straight forward at terminal 5 now for example

There was one holiday which I really wanted to go on which only went from Gatwick at 6.30am so I would have ended up paying for a flight down (as it is too far for me to drive on my own) and booking a hotel room which I would be vacating at 4am approx to check in - no way!! So I restricted my options to Manchester departures and am going to Prague, Vienna and Budapest but from looking at a thread in a different forum here, it looks as if I might have a long wait for the Gatwick flight before we transfer to the hotel - is that the case?

And the really thing that really gets me annoyed is the very restricted choice of holidays in the school holidays! I no longer look at where the holidays go to but when they are! Very frustrating!!

Hi Shyanne,

I can certainly see why that would be frustrating for you to only utilise the hotel room for a short amount of time. Without knowing which tour you are referring to I would assume that Manchester don't offer the route needed for that holiday.

For your Prague, Vienna & Budapest holiday we would arrange separate transfers to the hotel for each flight unless they were arriving at a similar time, so no need to worry about waiting for hours at the airport!

Thanks

Will

Thumbs Down 
Dear all,

as a result of your great feedback we are going to be trialling some Manchester specific departures for our 2013 holidays. These will be available in our September brochure. Although there will be just a small selection initially while we try and guage what works we hope that this will improve your choices if you live in the north.

We will also improve the way that we show our regional departure options on the brochure page so that it makes it easier for you to see which holidays will be best for your needs.

Thanks again to everyone for taking the time to tell us your thoughts.

happy holidays

Will

Hi Will,
I have followed this thread with interest. I see Just You are considering offering more flights from Manchester for next year to cater for those people living in the North, which is great - but what about us Midlanders?

Whereas East Midlands airport would probably not be an option, Birmingham has a very large airport and I am sure there must be flights available to the destinations Just You use.
At present we get very little choice of holidays from Birmingham, other than a few long-haul holidays, so for the majority of holidays we have to fly from London airports - but we get no connecting flights from Birmingham to London either.

It will be interesting to see what holidays are offered from Manchester in the new brochure, but even so it will just mean we Midlanders still have very few options from Birmingham.

Best wishes,
Lesley Angel

Hi Lesley,

As a midlander myself I understand your point. We do currently have half a dozen European tours and some South American tours that depart from Birmingham at the moment. Birmingham doesn't offer as many routes that we use as Manchester does at the moment which is why we don't do more from there.

We will be keenly watching how popular our regional departures are for next year and if they are successful then you can be sure that we will be doing more.

to Saints96 - we will be trialling some North America tours on Manchester only departures. Plus we will be showcasing more the other tours that have Manchester (and other regional options). In the current brochure we actually offer 18 different tours from Manchester alone for example.

Many thanks

Will
