Who do I go to for cheap flights?

Can I get a passport for ds2 in time? You used to be able to queue up somewhere in London for them - is this still possible?

Puff

You can find out about the passport at www.ukpa.gov.uk, they have a what to do bit if you're travelling within two weeks. This is the UK Passport Office site by the way!

Best place for cheap flights would be Easyjet, BMIbaby (depending where you are in the country) or google cheap flights and this will throw up plenty of sites you can look at.

Hope this helps, have a great time.

Puff - you can queue up for a renewal but not for a first time one.

If you go to the post office, I believe they do an express service and check the form over for you. You would need to get it sorted out tomorrow though to have a reasonable chance of getting it back on time!

It's his first passport (he's just 2) - looked at the passport office website - it looks as though replacement or renewal passports can be obtained in a day, but not first ones . There's a guaranteed 1 week turnaround service though....

Lucky you! Hope you can get it sorted in time.

You could try Thomsonfly for flights.

Where do you live? For flights try www.skyscanner.net . The airport is listed under Menorca.

Puff Sun 03-Jul-05 21:49:34

Thanks for the advice and info - will ring passport people tomorrow and in meantime peruse flights!

Fantastic!
Try Travelbag and Trailfinders too. Both good,and I use them a lot.

Insure & Co on the internet are by far the cheapest travel insurance company too.

QueenEagle Sun 03-Jul-05 22:19:46

Doh - that should have read Insure & Go...

Can you fly directly to Menorca - thought you had to fly to Majorca first and then take a ferry???

Stand corrected - but any of the main airports should have flights.

where can you fly from puff? manchester has cheap seats with monarch on the 15th, as does luton and gatwick.

I have just found my brother good flights to Menorca from Stansted, good times and £960 for 4 for 14 nights, flights with Thomas Cook. Dates available were for lots of dates in Aug, good luck.
