    It’s £5.30 for 30min in the short stay car park. If you time it right that should be enough.It’s £8.xx for 1hr if you run over. I’ve done a couple of family pickups in the last few weeks and no problem getting in and out in 20min.

    Assuming a UK passport + bags it’ll take minimum 20min from landing time to get through.

    There is a cafe Nero in the terminal right by the foot bridge to the short stay car park so if they beat you could always wait for you there …

    Thanks, ended up doing as you said. Timing was perfect and it took 30 mins.

    Right, ok. Will try that. Thanks

    Thanks both, will keep an eye out.

    I can only assume then phoning to get Creation to make me a bank transfer will be like pulling teeth? 🙂

    I have done it and it was pretty straightforward.

    Mine is offering 26K (usually 25K, so not a massive increase but every little helps!), for £3K spend in 3 months.
    You are welcome to the link if you want it.

    I think that’s the usual bonus with additional 1k because of referral. I’ve that as well on my other card.

    The Monese voucher page mentions 90 days. Does that mean whatever underlying voucher you buy will expire in 90 days, or you have 90 days to choose an underlying voucher, which in turn will have its own validity?

    I think you have to choose a voucher in 90 days. Sainsbury voucher I once got has 2 years validity.

    And the route has new club suite if it matters.

    There’s a direct BA flight from Heathrow to bangalore, have you tried that? I think it’ll be better for connecting to Chennai.

    shub

    Agreed. If you haven’t already booked, there are better options.

    In similar situation.
    I’ve Flights already booked to Santorini for a week in mid-August next year. Will be travelling with a toddler and a baby so can’t do island hopping.
    So considering various options.
    Plan A is a 5 night points redemptions at Vedema – Marriott and 2 nights somewhere else.
    Plan B could be couple of days in Santorini and 5 days on some other near by island.

    Suggestions please?

    Codes working again apart from 400 one.

    Everything was open and working 1 month back.

    It’s all it allows you online if changing to the same route. And an easyjet ‘chat’ person confirmed the 1 year validity. Not actually (re)booked anything though.
    (I thought I tested moving my early May ’21 to late May ’22 successfully in the old system, but I may be misremembering)

    You’re right, Online it only allows now within 1 year of original flight date.

    Changes are limited to 1 year from original flight dates. I’m not sure if this was the case, but it certainly is now.

    Is it mentioned anywhere? Can’t see it on their website.

    I’ve got a couple of sets of flights I need to change. One was fully cancelled, and was back in around May last year. They still show in my account as cancelled. I’ve then got flights to Barcelona in Feb which was for my husband’s birthday, but they changed the airport from Luton to Gatwick, which doesn’t suit us. Need to do something with those before Feb.

    I’ve then got flight to Tenerife booked later this month which I think we’re going to change. However, these have already been changed once (they were previously cancelled flights) and so this seems to mean I can’t change them online, as it just throws up an error code. I just wanted to get some idea of what to change them to that wouldn’t cost a shed load more money, but I guess I’m going to have to call, and have a list of ideas/dates and see what happens.

    Yes, I also have couple of cancelled flights from earlier this year but would like to book in Dec 2022. Not sure if there will be additional charges for change in airport now.

    From what I can figure out, once the test on arrival is negative, you are free to go anywhere.

    Yes, it seems they have changed it. This are the new instructions:
    “Switch to another flight for free. You can search easyJet flights and make changes to your booking yourself via Manage Bookings. When making changes online, you can choose from any alternative flights on the same route. If you’d like to change the departure or arrival airport to another one within the same country, please contact our Customer Services Team, who will be happy to help.”

    Looks like changing within same country is still free but have not yet tried.
