There are two reasons why this is an approximate price:
  • Some quoted prices were the 2018 prices because 2019 prices will not be available until later this year. There is likely to be a small increase to the 2018 prices.
  • The approximate cost of the flights was calculated using prices quoted for flights in 2018. We will not know the exact price until we book the flights for 2019 at the end of June.
To secure a place on this trip, please pay a deposit of €250 at the Travel Desk at the next general meeting.
