Latest From The Blog

Traveling in the winter can certainly be a very different experience than traveling in the summer from what you are choosing to pack to right up to the process of flying. This month, our blogging aim is to bring you a few tips to help you prepare for your winter air travel. Hopefully our little guide will help you get to your final destination and back with minimal trouble and in a safe manner regardless of what winter tries to throw in your direction.

Winter time is certainly not known for its wonderful and predictable weather.  When flying, your travel times can be closely affected by a sudden surprise storm, whether that’s because of the ice and heavy winds or snow. Read through this short list to help make the best of it.

  1. The first golden rule of flying in the winter is, ‘fly non-stop’! Once a plane is in the air it is out of the way of those pesky winter storm conditions so it is unlikely your flight will be affected. Your delays will come from either take-off or landing, so take advantage of this and try to minimize the number of times you have to go through that process. Catching a connecting flight will absolutely mean adding an extra take-off and landing to your journey, therefore increasing the chance of delay.
  2. IF you do end up having no choice but to take a flight with a connection, make your best efforts to avoid a long layover time. With a short layover time, it is far more likely that a short weather related delay during take-off or landing will cause you to miss your connecting flight. I think people who enjoy being stranded in an airport for an indeterminate amount of time are few and far between. If worse comes to worse, let your flight attendant know and they may be able to help hold your connecting flight and at the very least, make sure you’re the first off your current flight once you land.
  3. Again, if you do get stuck having to take a connecting flight, check the weather in advance for the connecting airport. The weather at your departure airport may be sunny and warm, but your connecting city may be experiencing the storm of the century. If this is the case, we would certainly suggest making contact with your airline company and ask whether there is any way they can connect you to your destination through an alternate connection airport.
  4. Also, pre-emptively, if you have to take a connecting flight, you might want to take advantage of the freedom you have while you are booking your trip and selecting a more southern city to connect through. The father south you go generally means the more stable the weather is and therefore less likely to result in any disruptions
  5. Choose a morning flight. Simple. Morning flights are one of the best ways to avoid delays. Delays tend to start in the morning and cause a domino like effect of disruptions throughout the day. A 5 minute delay in the morning might result in a few hours later on in the evening. I think it’s safe to assume that 5 minutes is highly more agreeable than a few hours.
  6. Don’t wrap gifts. It’s something many people do without thinking, and to be fair is isn’t something most people would have a second thought about but security doesn’t like items they can’t see so it is likely they make want to take a peak inside. Save yourself the aggravation and pack yourself some wrapping paper and sticky tape to wrap at your destination. 

If you’re planning on flying out of Gatwick and paying a visit to the incredible Dutch city of Amsterdam, make sure you plan your itinerary ahead of time. (Not to mention check out our availability and stay the night before your trip) We have put together a list of 7 fun and stereotypically Dutch things to do while you’re in Amsterdam to help make the best of your little vacation.

  1. Vondelpark
  2. Vondelpark is located smack in the heart of Amsterdam and offers an incredible escape for the bustling city outside the park walls. The park is generally filled with people of all ages and all backgrounds relaxing, playing ball or having BBQ’s. The park is filled with lakes, birds and gardens to provide a bit of sanctuary for everyone.

  3. See the canals
  4. The cheapest form of transportation for you while you are travelling will always be walking. Walking is arguably the best way to get around Amsterdam anyway! Why not go and take advantage of this opportunity and meander around the cobbled streets alongside the historic and picturesque canals. Not only will you get to absorb the canal culture the Dutch hold so dear to their hearts, you will also see a world of fantastic architecture

  5. Sunday Market
  6. Every Sunday in Amsterdam, you will have no trouble locating a Sunday Market. Usually held in the city squares (pleins) or alongside the canals, a Sunday market certainly won’t be hard to find. You’ll be fast tracking your way to the top of your bargaining game while checking out the local arts, antiques and one-of-a-kind Amsterdam souvenirs.

  7.  Openbare Bibliotheek Amsterdam
  8. The OBA is the Public Library of Amsterdam and despite sounding like a dull and dreary afternoon, the library is actually a great place to visit and best of all it’s free. Occasion you might even get to enjoy the piano music coming from the top floor, where you can also enjoy views of the city from above.

  9. Blijburg Beach
  10. For the lack of seaside which Amsterdam has, you might find it quite impressive that the Dutch has still managed to create a beach of their own. Whether you’re simply looking somewhere for a nice stroll, sunbathe, swim or even somewhere for a great outdoor party, this beach has it all.

    >
  11. Stadsarchief
  12. Stadsarchief is the City Archives for Amsterdam where you are able to walk through exhibitions created to showcase the incredibly rich history of Amsterdam. You will find a variety of interesting things to see here, and the entrance to the basement level is all free. The building itself is certainly something worth paying a visit.

  13. Red Light District
  14. This is a must experience staple of a visit to Amsterdam! The Red Light District is well known for its controversial topic of interest, but also is one of the cities most visited spots. A little window shopping here will open your eyes to something you probably won’t see anywhere else.
