From Ian Pettit
During March, over the past few years the Photographic Society has planned a few days on the continent of Europe.
This year we have enquired with the travel agent and they have provided details for a trip to Riga in Latvia.
Leave EMA on Monday 26th March 2018 at 07.20 hrs arriving in Riga at 12.05. Returning on Wednesday 28th March departing 22.30 arriving EMA 23.25.
They are offering us the Dodo Hotel (2nights) which is a 6 minute tram ride from the old town.
The price for flight and accommodation is £258.50 for single accommodation and £217 for shared accommodation. Insurance and transfers are not included.
I need to check a couple of things. 1 does the Hotel accommodation include breakfast, I believe it will. 2 If we fly with Ryanair, we need to understand the baggage arrangement as they are about to change. This could mean a small additional cost. The price currently assumed carry on luggage only.
As with all these trips the price quoted is at the time of enquiry and can change. We will need to book as soon as possible to ensure the best price. I also assume we will need to pay in full at the time of booking as most operators these days require the balance to be paid 3 months before travelling.
Once we know the numbers interested I will proceed with booking. In the mean time I will keep members informed of any updates as they become available.
If you would like to join this trip PLEASE LET IAN P KNOW VIA EMAIL by next Thursday 11th January. This ensures we know of everyone interested and avoids me forgetting someone.
