Travel essentials 

At one time or another we have all forgotten something that we’ve had to panic buy at the airport. Therefore, pack these essential travel items in advance to make sure your flight and time abroad is as smooth as possible:

  • Plug adaptor
  • Travel cushion
  • Book
  • Earphones
  • Cash to exchange
  • Antibacterial hand soap
  • Plasters
  • Eye mask

Luggage size

If you haven’t already got a luggage scale at home, now’s the time to buy one. You can pick them up for a really reasonable price and it saves you any worry about your luggage being too heavy. Once you have packed your suitcase you can simply put it on the scale and adjust as needed.

If you are taking hand-luggage, double check how many bags you are allowed to take with your airline, as well as the dimensions of those bags. Airlines have become more and more strict over the years and the last thing you want to do at the airport is remove contents from your luggage so it fits. 

Tickets

It goes without saying that you should always double check your tickets the night before your flight. Check what time your flight is and if you’re not checking in online, see what time you need to be there for. 

When you pre-book our chauffeur service, at the time of booking we will always suggest to get to the airport with plenty of check in time depending on the flight. This usually ranges from one and a half to two hours before the flight takes off. However, when you book airport transfers with us, we will work out all the timings for you to ensure you have plenty of time to get to the airport.

Travelling with children

If you are travelling with children, being organised is more important than ever and that’s where our airport transfers come in. Save yourself the stress of airport parking and be dropped off right outside the airport with us.

Although we are unable to supply car seats, we can use yours and are happy to look after them until your return. This saves you any hassle of taking it with you and we will bring it with us for your return. Find out more about travelling with children here.

Sleep

The day before your flight it is important to make sure you eat dinner early, have everything planned and packed, and set an earlier bedtime. Although it’s hard to sleep properly the night before a flight, try to fit in as many ‘zzz’ as you can. Not only will this help you feel not as groggy when your alarm goes off early, it will also take a lot off your mind knowing you are organised beforehand.
