Turkey Flight and Travel Information

General Flight Information

Rather than restricting our holidays to certain flights on specific days, we are happy to book any available flight that suits your particular requirements, whether those might be for a departure from your local airport or for a duration other than the standard one or two week package. Supplements will apply to cover the differential in cost between your chosen flight option and the standard option upon which our brochure prices are based. As most airlines now operate “fluid pricing” policies with fares rising and falling in line with supply and demand, typical flight supplements are shown for guidance purposes only. As a general rule, supplements tend to be highest for weekend flights, especially for school holiday departures such as May and October Half Term, when demand invariably outstrips supply. We will provide a definite quote for your chosen departure date at the time of booking, and advise you of any charges that certain airlines apply for options such as checked-in baggage or in-flight meals. When we are buying flights specially for you in order to offer the most competitive fares it may sometimes be necessary for you to pay the full amount for the flight at the time of booking.

All our regular flights are day flights (unless advised otherwise at the time of booking), and are operated by reputable carriers such as Monarch, Thomas Cook Airlines, Thomson Airlines, Germania, Aegean Airlines, Olympic Air, Turkish Airlines, Jet2, British Airways and Easyjet. We will advise the actual flight timings at the time of booking, but please note that schedules may sometimes be subject to change. We will advise you of any significant schedule changes that may occur subsequently, but please be aware that such changes are outside our control, and only constitute a ‘major change‘ under the terms of our booking conditions if the departure time of your outbound flight changes by 12 hours or more from the timings confirmed on your original confirmation invoice.
