I was just about to ask the same question, not that I'm trying to ponce a free hoodie, t-shirt, poncho, or any of the other bits and pieces in Blast's vast range of wares. No, just trying to work out if I can factor in a free hoodie or t-shirt when calculating what clothes not to bring   santa

Guys Sarah give me the boarding passes for everyone on the 3rd week, if anyone would like a copy or info PM me, I can scan them and send then across.
Regardless if I send copies I'll be carrying all boarding passes just incase, to hand out at the airport.

And some goodies too Very Happy
Guys I'm not sure if you want to swap no. Before we leave to find each other or maybe we'll be okay finding each other? Never flown from London.

Well we're here, but there's some good news and bad. The car rental does not include insurance, unknown to me, if we didn't opt in for the insurance and we wrote off the car, we would have to pay €30,000! Not sure anyone would b happy to pay that. So, we opted to take it out but I need £75 per person I'm afraid. The taxes on rental cars within Europe have increased massively I'm afraid, so the overall price of them have increased generally, Sorry everyone.
