    Summer Holiday 2015 Atlantic to Med Pyrenean ride

    Post  donkypace on Sun Mar 22, 2015 1:39 pm

    I have been looking around for a possible destination for this years getaway. Please let me me kniw what your thoughts are on a possible trans Pyrenan route Atlantic to Med on August 15th to August 21st. You will need to be wafer thin as this is a not easy. I found a professional company who look after everything other than flights. They guide us along the route have two nice busses as back up which also carries our luggage from hotel to hotel etc, meals are also included and they even have their own chef to make us good nutritious grub.
    The price is £899 per person on a twin room basis £300 deposit payable on booking. Flights are on top I reckon about £200 for flights.

    We could probably do it cheaper if we did it ourselves but the admin would be high and complicated.

    Any thoughts much appreciated.

    Hi Paul,

    I really like the idea and the cost is fairly justified for what you get. However, this year I wouldn't be able to afford it or indeed explain it to Jo, bearing in mind the house extension project we are planning. I'd expect that a few of the guys may feel the same about the cost?

    For me, I could do a trip similar to previous, where we spend around £500 for flights and accommodation. Sorry to be negative, but just being realistic (better than white noise).

    Cheers,
