Fly Direct From 20 UK Airports

Our range of UK airports helps keep your journey times to a minimum, and for your added convenience, we can also arrange your airport car-parking or an overnight airport hotel for you in advance – see details below.

Connecting Flights Via Europe

Inghams has negotiated special rates to selected destinations with the following European airlines:

  • K.L.M. via Amsterdam
  • S.A.S. via Copenhagen/Oslo

Flight details and full flight times will be given at the time of booking. You have a short flight from your UK airport to Amsterdam/Copenhagen/Oslo where you change aircraft before flying to your chosen destination. Your luggage is checked through to your final destination (except in Oslo, where you will have to reclaim your baggage).

British Airways via Gatwick/Heathrow

For a £75 supplement we can offer connecting flights to airports shown in the table above from: Aberdeen, Belfast, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Jersey, Leeds-Bradford, Manchester and Newcastle. We recommend you book early in order to get the lowest tour operator economy booking class from Gatwick or Heathrow

Baggage Allowances

All European flights (charter and scheduled), now limit each passenger to one item of checked in luggage weighing either 18 or 20kg. Exact details will be on your e-ticket

Pre-Bookable Seating Arrangements

To ensure your party sits together, you can pre-book seats on the following airlines: Austrian Airlines and Thomson Airways (Innsbruck, Salzburg and Verona only).

Simply reserve your seats at the time of booking up to 12 days before departure for a small charge of £9 per person return. Please note that seats may be separated by an aisle due to aircraft configurations. Exact seat numbers are given at check in. Should we cancel or change your airline to one that is not part of this scheme, we will issue a full refund.

Flight-only Bookings & Transfers

We sometimes have flight seats available to sell on a flight-only basis on our charter flights to Italy and Austria throughout the season. As availability and prices will vary according to the date of travel and the time of booking, please see our flights only page for the latest up-to-date information.

Flight-only passengers may also book car hire or coach transfers to and from our featured resorts if required. Please note that coaches run to/from featured Inghams accommodation only, and please use the price panels on our resort pages to check that your preferred resort is indeed served by the flight you have chosen.

Private Transfers

Private Transfers are also available for the ultimate speed and convenience, and you can pre-book a private taxi transfer with us from the airport to your hotel. We offer private taxi transfers to groups of two to six people booking a full package with accommodation. Prices are shown in the table to the right. If your group is larger than six people, please contact us for a quote. You can book a private transfer up to 14 days before departure, but we recommend you confirm this at time of booking to ensure it is reserved for you.

Transfers to your resort

  • Transfer to your accommodation from the airport is normally by coach, except in Switzerland and Constance. Occasionally this will be by or include transport by minibus, taxi, train or boat. Guests travelling to different resorts may be on the same coach, and the transfer itinerary may include dropping off guests at resorts en route.
  • Approximate distances and transfer times from overseas airports to resorts (excl. time at the airport) are shown on each resort page. Journey times may vary due to traffic and weather conditions. Times given are only a guide.
  • It may be necessary to wait for guests arriving on other flights, but we try to keep waiting time to a minimum.
  • In a few Austrian/Italian resorts it may not be possible for the coach to reach the hotel due to the layout of the resort centre. We will try to arrange for the hotels to send a taxi/minibus to collect you and/or your luggage.

Transfers and Travel in Switzerland

  
Transfers to Swiss Resorts and Lake Constance
Transfers in Switzerland via Zurich and Geneva airports are by train, using the excellent Swiss Federal and mountain railways. Your journey may involve changes of trains, and some transfers also involve travel by a local bus, boat or cable car. Zurich and Geneva have railway stations within the airport. Onward transfers within resorts to/from your accommodation are included by taxi/minibus/bus where necessary. Swiss trains, railway stations etc operate a ‘no-smoking’ policy. Some competitors charge
£115 per person for rail transfers in Switzerland.

First-class
First-class rail tickets are available for Swiss transfers (and Constance, Germany) at a supplement:
• £33 Single-centre holidays
• £33 ‘Mont Blanc Express’ (upgrade applies on Swiss trains only from Martigny to Visp)

• £40 Single centre holidays to Bregenz, Lindau & Lochau•£63 Glacier Express, Golden Pass & William Tell Express (3-centre holidays)
• £83 Two-centre combinations
NB. Must be booked at time of confirmation.


Swiss Half-Price Card
Worth over £80, this card is included in the holiday price for all Inghams guests travelling to Switzerland. This entitles you to a 50% reduction on first or second class travel on most of the Swiss Transport network, including all mainline railways, regular public and postbus routes (not PTT excursions), most lake ferries and steamers and many cable cars and mountain railways. NB Half-Price card not included for guests travelling to Lindau, Lochau & Bregenz. When pre-booking a ‘Swiss Pass’, this is issued in addition to your Half-Price card & resort transfer ticket.

Fly-Luggage – Switzerland (Optional)

Swiss Railways operate a service which enables you to send your luggage all the way from your UK airport, on check-in, to your hotel in Switzerland. This service is available to all guests flying to Geneva or Zurich airports at an extra cost of £14 per item each way. Please purchase at time of booking.

Outward journey

• Check-in your luggage at your UK airport, with fly-rail baggage label attached.
• Please note: Your luggage will normally arrive at your hotel the morning after you arrive in Switzerland, so it is vital that you carry an overnight bag with you with all    essentials.
• Luggage will arrive in resort at the railway station and be collected and brought to your accommodation for you by your Inghams representative (system varies by resort).

Homeward journey

• Luggage normally needs to be sent from your Swiss resort back to the airport the day before your flight home. Your Inghams representative will arrange this for you.
• Please note: You may only be able to send your luggage as far as Geneva or Zurich airport. For security reasons you may need to collect it at the airport railway station and check-in for your flight with it as normal.
• If you are flying with Swiss International Airlines, you can normally send you luggage back to your UK airport without collecting it at the Swiss airport. Please note that this service is not included in the basic holiday package.

Two Centre and Multi-Centre Holidays
Luggage registration within Switzerland between centres is not included but can usually be arranged locally for a small charge, if required.

Swiss Classic Tour - Transportation of one piece of luggage per person is included from Lucerne to St. Moritz, St. Moritz to Zermatt and Zermatt to Grindelwald only.

Regional Connecting Flights

Booking scheduled flights from regional airports may not be possible until 10 months prior to departure, when airlines release their availability.
