I am book on the Dubrovnik and the Dalmatian Coast trip in October. I have never travelled alone before and I am worried about arrangements  at Gatwick Airport,  in the brochure it states that there are JY representatives to meet travellers at all UK airports but
I read a post recently where the person said they did not get to meet the rep until they got to Dubrovnik airport.   Can you reassure me that there will be someone from JY at Gatwick as I am not sure about checking luggage in
etc.

Hi HMT,

We do have airport representatives at all UK airports and you'll find them walking around the check in area. They should be carrying a grey/silver clipboard with Just You on the back. If you can't see them straight away - not to worry, they may be helping one of your fellow travellers to check in.

I always recommend that you use the Just You luggage labels that are sent with your final documents - this helps our representatives to keep an eye out for you. The labels are also handy for your fellow travellers to spot you too.

Kindest regards,

Julia

Hi HMT.

That may have been my post that you read about no rep at the airport when I flew to Dubrovnik.  If so, may I apologise as I flew from East Midlands, was ridiculously early at the baggage drop off, and the JY rep may not have been there yet. 

I have always found J.Y reps to help at both Gatwick and Heathrow, so don't worry.  If by any chance you don't see anyone when you arrive (and I think that you are flying EasyJet?), there is always someone from their company who will help you.  I hope that helps. 

It may also help if you put a post later on, on the "Say Hello to Single Travellers" thread to see if there is anyone else on the forum, travelling from Gatwick, on your date.  It doesn't always help, as not everyone uses the forum, but there may be someone who you can get in contact with prior to your departure date, so you may be able to meet up with them at Departures. 

I have also found, if it is an airport that you don't know, that reading up about it first online may help.  Gatwick is actually a fairly easy airport to find your way around, unlike Heathrow. 





I don't know whether you will have a Local Tour Manager (Julia or Monty will be able to let you know nearer to the departure date), in which case you will not meet them until Dubrovnik, but if you have a British Tour Manager, I would imagine that they will be flying with you from Gatwick.  

I hope this helps a bit!!

Hi HMT,

I was on this trip on the 1st May trip to Dubrovnik. It was a fantastic holiday and you are in for a real treat.

My flight from Gatwick was at 05:55, I got to the airport around 3:15 and the JY Representative was there already!!! She recognised me from my JY label and came to help me check in my luggage. I then went to have a coffee and a couple of ladies recognised me by my JY label and asked me to join them... so before I even got on the airplane I had made friends.

Kind Regards
Kezzer

Hi Smudger1

There are 19 travellers booked on the 17th November departure 13 of the group are taking the main tour only with 6 of the group staying for the Singapore add-on. the group is made up of 13 women and 6 men with ages from mid-40s through to early-80s.

I have spoken to a colleague about the time you are transiting in Singapore. Currently Just You don't offer any trips but I have been told that subject to your flight times, you may have time to explore the city on your own and the Tour Manager should be able to advise you. Alternatively, the airport offer a free city explorer service (depending on times) which you may be able to take.

Kindest regards,

Julia

Hi Julia
I hadn't realised until I read your post that we could get more information about the make up of the group.  I have just booked my first just you holiday to Malta on 26 Sep 2017.  I notice that there is only one place left on this trip so as it is almost full are you able to let me know how many are in the group, male/female mix, age ranges and anyone flying from Gatwick.....  or whatever information you can share.

Thanks in advance, kind regards
Jacquie
