Excellent. Your Rob saved us a ton of money and did a great job with his BA booking for Anna who is going to China next week. The Project Manager was very impressed.
I would like to say a huge thank you to you all, your persistence and good humour got me through last week, plus the final flight arranged got Patrick from Bodrum in Turkey to Valencia in time for him to attend the Grand Prix!
Medway Travel simplified things – and this saved a lot of money per passenger! They keep a very watchful eye over you. Well done Medway Travel, and thank you.
