About a month ago I found this site when I was looking for advice on POCs and travel insurance. Thanks for all your help. We finally went with the sequal eclipse costing us £290 to hire. Insurance I paid a little over £400 as I got a discount through my bank Santander. So all in all not too expensive. Would certainly not hesitate to travel again. All air crews and ground staff very helpful. I have to comment that the assistance in Manchester airport in comparison to the US was a poor second. Not due to staff who were brilliant but due to understaffing. on both the outgoing and arrival one man to push three wheel chairs!!
Despite this we managed to see all the sights and best of all spend some quality time with our son and lovely daughter in law.
