Taking into account the extra fuel and the bridge toll and a night in the airport hotel and eating out the evening before it was still over £100 cheaper and a much more relaxed morning having the hotel there.
VERY surprised that Cardiff was cheaper -was that flight only with Vuelling/Flybe ??
Are these just flights or package holidays and can anyone explain why there is the difference?
It's the cheapest option for us Larnaca to Liverpool direct and we always stay 1 night on arrival at the Hampton by Hilton hotel directly on the airport. Miles cheaper than we can get for both flights and airport hotels at Manchester (our home city) and an easy route onwards by train into Blackpool the next morning to be close to where my parents now live.
We're off back again in a few months.... just extended our flight with easyJet from one week to two as we're on a UK property hunt near Blackpool/Cleveleys as my dad isn't strong enough to travel any more and isn't going to recover from the debilitating illness he has.
So, by the time we return to our roots we will have had 12 good years of life in the sun and are now looking forward to another chapter in life's great tapestry!

Unfortunately, little choice of holiday destination nowadays, so we have to drive to Gatwick to get to the longer haul routes -also VERY expensive compared with travelling from the larger airports -it was cheaper for us to fly from B'Ham last year to Corfu -even allowing for an overnight stay,8 days parking and petrol, we saved over £250 :yikes
Cardiff! had to take a friend there to catch a flight home to France. We started off on the M4, then a dual carriageway, then a road with traffic in both directions and eventually a road with passing places. Just when we were about to turn the sat nav off we saw the tail of a plane poking above the hedge, we had arrived!
