We always look at prices of scheduled flights on the websites of British Airways and Virgin Atlantic and try to book well in advance. Both airlines are very good. Outward flights from London Gatwick always leave mid morning and arrives mid afternoon (Local Time). Return flights leave Barbados early evening and fly through the night, arriving around 6am in the UK. Flight duration is about 8 hours and most flights are direct to the only airport in Barbados – Grantley Adams International.
We also offer an airport “Meet and Greet” service , that will deliver all your party and your luggage right to the door of the villa, saving any anxiety trying to find a taxi when the airport is busy, or the villa destination. Our reliable driver will await your arrival just outside the arrivals gate and will be holding up a card with your name on it! (He will know if your flight is arriving earlier than scheduled, or has been delayed). The charge for this service is US$90 (approx £60), which is similar to the Airport Taxi Fare. Please let us know if you would like to take this option. We will of course require your flight details so that w can organize this with our driver, who will also collect you from the villa and return you to the airport in good time to catch you flight home for a similar charge if you would like to make the arrangement with him. This is all part of the service and attention to detail when you decide to book Palm Tree Villa!
