Service rating : We were very happy with the service provided by Fleetway and had a great week at Knossos Beach Bungalows. Our only comment would be why were our flights booked to Chania rather than Heraklion? Our original dates were to Heraklion and we did change the dates before booking but do not feel we were told about the change of airport which necessitates a three and a half hour coach trip dropping other people off along the way. The return was better as it was just the two of us in a minibus and so was quicker. We had booked our very early morning flight so that we could enjoy an extra three to four hours at Knossos Beach Bungalows. We did thoroughly enjoy our stay and would recommend Fleetway Travel.
Product : Wonderful week. Lovely bungalows, clean, well designed and laid out with privacy when we needed it. Great choice of food in main restaurant, Swell restaurant fantastic. Renie massage great, Maria Pilates fantastic. Room 143 recommended. Check that you are flying into Heraklion rather than Chania to avoid a long coach journey.

Service rating : Excellent service from Fleetway, with superb support by e-mail and (when asked for only) by telephone.
All the separate parts of the package worked brilliantly and the local agents abroad were outstandling and worked together seamlessly.
I will happily use this company in the future and have already recommended Fleetway to friends.
Product : The island of Lipari is lovely and the town itself very pretty. The views from the accommodation were fabulous - it's a pity there's no facility to upload photographs.
Villa Enrica is towards the northern end of the town and is absolutely gorgeous. The standard of the rooms excellent - a room for two was a huge living room, bedroom with an emperor sized bed and built in storage and a large shower room. Two terraces with tables and chairs, one South facing one facing West. Aircon efficient.
People with mobility issues must make sure that they make this clear when booking - our room was near the pool, which is 50m up a steep hill from the Reception area.
Staff were very friendly and helpful and the breakfasts were leisurely. If, like us, you go half-board then the evening meal is served and the Chimera restaurant, which is a ten minute walk away, although the Villa Enrica will transfer you by minibus. The standard of food here was very high indeed, with fresh, local produce beautifully presented. I'd recommend the squid.

Located right in the middle of the Costa Blanca, Benidorm is divided by the two beaches Poniente and Levante (referring to the Spanish words for sunrise and sunset). Inarguably the heart of the city, these two sandy beaches attract both holidaymakers and locals alike all year long and a dip in the clear blue Mediterranean Sea should definitely be a daily ritual while staying here. Here you will also find plenty of options for water sports as well as tour boats along the coast and to the nearby Benidorm Island, which serves as a wildlife sanctuary. For an alternative view of the city, head to the chequered Santa Ana Square which separates the two beaches. Here you can either view the sea and the cityscape from the Mirador viewing platform or walk down the steps to the Mediterranean Balcony, where you’ll be almost entirely surrounded by the sea and the waves crashing gently against the rocks below. After spending time along the coast, you can either stroll through the centre of the city and look at the tall buildings as well as the local bull-fighting arena, or head out of town for some of the experiences and sights that hide in the area around Benidorm. Visit the beautiful Algar Falls just north of the city, walk along the water or jump straight in for a refreshing dip. You can also experience the colourful caves of Canelobre that penetrate the hillsides west of Benidorm. If what you’re looking for is more along the lines of fun and relaxation, then you can also spend a day or two in the Aqualandia water park or the Terra Mitica theme park, where myths and legends from around the Mediterranean appear in various entertaining ways. Benidorm is a place where sun, sand and luscious water come first, but you’ll easily be able to find plenty of adventures around every corner to add extra flavour to your holiday.
Each region in Spain is fiercely proud of its local identity and culture and regardless of where you find yourself in this vast and fascinating country, you’ll quickly discover that one of the cornerstones in every regional self-image is the local food. We’ve collected (and sampled) the five following dishes, yet these are just a few examples of the great variety of dishes you’ll find in Spain.
Spending an extended weekend in Iceland means making sure you pack in all the things worth seeing and doing here. Don't fret, though, we've kindly compiled a useful list that you are free to follow to make sure you get the full experience of this wonderful Viking island.
Whether you are staying on the mainland, or even on one of the many islands themselves, you can easily travel to and between some of the more remote islands that will give you a glimpse of a more serene part of the Mediterranean, away from the tourists and the developed seafronts.
