We recently flew to Guernsey with Blue Islands and were quite impressed.

We took up one of those 'Secret Escape' packages which included flights, B&B (with one dinner) and car hire upon arrival.

It was so convenient with only 40 minutes travel by road to Southampton airport then just a 35 minute trip to Guernsey. We had front seats which gave ample leg space and then after take off, were served with a complimentary drink. The plane had a propeller which made it a little noisy, but after a while you got used to it! The crew were smartly dressed, polite and attentive to any needs. It was an early 8.30 flight and a warm bright sunny day, which provided good views from the plane, leaving behind the coastline and later encountering some of those wonderful white 'cotton wool' ' clouds which make you seem as if you are in a different world.

We touched down in Guernsey smoothly and embarked, crossing a short distance from the terminal, where we collected our luggage and headed towards the Avis car hire booth.

After our 5 day trip we returned to the departure area, where we shown to a special area for Blue Island passengers and given a complimentary drink and somewhere to sit until take off.

Blue Island seem to offer reasonable fares and include flights to Amsterdam, London City, Geneva, Chambery, Jersey, Guernsey, Paris, Bristol and Zurich.

It was very 'stress free' which was great!

    Thanks for the information. I will definitely give your review on Guernsey a read.

    Car rental was included with the package and came with half a tank of fuel which you had to take back empty. There was insurance to pay and fortunately we payed 'full cover' as we had an incident with the wing mirror. (The roads are very narrow)! You don't actually need much fuel as the island is quite small. We never had to refill the tank and we used the car every day (Ford Fiesta).

    The accommodation was La Grande Mare Hotel Golf and Country Club, located in Vazon Bay and was extremely good in all respects. I have written a review on 'Guernsey' which if you care to look up you will discover more about the hotel as well as the places we visited.

    Had a thoroughly enjoyable 5 days.

    The Channel Islands is on my bucket list of destinations. Thanks for the recommendation for flights, it sounds like a good option. How was the rest of the package - B&B and car rental?
