Snow is Falling

Depending on where you live in the country, you may have been treated to some snowy showers over the weekend. For many, the snowfall meant a winter wonderland of a weekend, but for others it meant travel misery filled with cancelled flights and closed roads.

Here is what is going on around the country.

snow, cars, snowy

A lot of places up and down the country woke up Sunday morning to a blanket of snow outside. Divided on opinion, some people love it and welcome it, especially this close to Christmas as it gets you in the Christmas spirit.

Others however, hate the disruption of it. The UK is notoriously bad with dealing with snow, particularly when it comes to travel.

Preparation.

When planning a trip, whether it’s by car, train, plane or ferry, we would always advise you to leave plenty of time to get to your international departure point (regardless of the weather), but even more when the snow starts falling.

Everyone drives slower in this weather, and rightly so. You don’t want to end up being late by not taking this into consideration.

Closures and Delays.

There have been numerous delays and some cancellations due to the weather. Strong winds, heavy snow and black ice are causing problems for the trains, ferry’s and planes.

We strongly urge you to check with your travel provider before leaving home.

If they have cancelled your flight/train or ferry, it will be their responsibility to rearrange this for you and ensure you get to your destination.
