On the way there the service was easy and perfect, however on our return despite phoning to let the company know we had arrived just after we got through passport control, we had to stand waiting on the shuttle bus for 35 minutes. This meant that when we finally got to the car we hit rush hour traffic which we had hoped to avoid. Overall, not ideal.

Terrible service on return journey on 7th July. My two children were feeling very poorly, had been vomiting on a very eventful journey from Ibiza. We had to wait over an hour on the bus turning up, along with loads of other people. A lot of us tried calling the number supplied to find out why the bus was so late, the staff were just hanging up the phone on us. The bus eventually turned up and the driver was very very rude. No apology for the lateness. We were then packed on the bus, far too many for one bus with loads of luggage. It was now past midnight, my children were exhausted, not to mention very ill with this vomiting bug. So disappointed in this service. I just wanted to get home after a very long and tiring day and this was the last thing we needed!!! Would not recommend to anyone!
