About Gatwick Airport

Gatwick Airport is one of London's major airports, next to London City, London Heathrow, London Luton and London Stansted.

In 1958 Gatwick Airport was officially opened by Queen Elizabeth II and was the world’s first airport with a direct railway link. Nowadays Gatwick Airport is not only well connected by rail, but also by road. Since Gatwick Airport was officially opened it has grown from just 186,000 passengers to over 45 million passengers each year. Gatwick is located in one of the best connected areas in the UK.

London knows 4 separate seasons, but still has light showers and cloudy skies most of the year. The best time to visit London depends on your preferences. But if you want to visit when the weather is mild, it is better for you to go between March and May. This time of the year you will witness the royal parks and gardens blossoming. If you want to save money and don’t mind the cold it is best to visit London between December and February.

    If flying out and need to return a rental car, give yourself an extra 15-30 minutes. You will need to wait for a shuttle to take you to the airport after returning your car. The airport is beautiful and easy to find what your looking for.

    If you arrive early for your flight, there is a lovely waiting area before you go through Security to the Gates. Lighting is soft, and there are comfortable couches to relax or nap on. There are also tables for your snacks, and snack and drink machines available. Free wi-fi lets you check your messages in a peaceful setting. If you want to make a phone call, there is no background noise. My husband and I wound down there for half-an-hour before going through security, and it refreshed us for our flight.

    San Jose is a fantastic airport to fly into if you're going to the Bay Area or headed to Santa Cruz and the central coast (you can't miss Big Sur!). Drive straight from SJ on Hwy 17 to Santa Cruz. Hit up Cat and Cloud for coffee on the East Side, and Verve on Fair if you check out the West Side. Head south and hit Big Sur. Hop on Highway 1 heading back north and if you please, go north passed Santa Cruz all the way to San Francisco. On the way back to San Jose it's always worth checking out East Bay (Oakland/Berkeley) but try to time it to miss traffic (literally impossible).

    It’s a smaller airport than I thought. 1 area for customs... long lines! And a bus trip with all your luggage to get to the car rental area. Dropping off your car is an easy process, no hassles. Just the bus trip back to the terminals building with all your luggage and no carts.

    Bring a small bag of candy or cookies for the desk crew and the crew working your flight. This small gesture can mean so much to them. Or just a simple smile and thank you when ever you see people working for an airline. They really do want to make your trip a positive experience, even when things happen beyond their control.

    Have reserved at the web of the company directly. Take with you copy of insurance. Take a trash bag with you, collecting the trip trash, so when delivering is faster. Bring a sanitizer lotion with you, so you can avoid get sick by touching the driving wheel . Be courteous with next customer, avoiding smoke in the car.

    The car rental staff will try to sell you insurance despite your efforts to inform them that you have already purchased insurance from a third party and hold insurance on your personal vehicle as well. It is important to be vigilant of this so that you do not accrue any unnecessary charges for your rental.

    It was Denver where we rented the car, not San Jose. Anyway, it was our first visit to Denver and we found it to be a lovely city. I would suggest a tour of down-town with a visit to the Larimar Square area for a lunch or dinner. We enjoyed a visit to Union Station to see the beautiful work they did on the renovation of the old train station. We stayed in Boulder and used that as a base for skiing at Copper Mountain and touring old, small mining towns like Nederland and Lyons. All in all a great trip that was made better with a great rental from Holiday!

    I traveled to Yosemite and then to Lake Tahoe. Lake Tahoe is the awesome place one should visit in the life time. The heavenly rope way is the most thrilling experience over there. And I also traveled to Golden Gate Bridge, Bay bridge, vista point, SFO downtown are the must places to visit. I suggest one to travel during nights to feel the beauty of bay bridge. For the drive lovers I suggest to have a ride on the step roads in the SFO downtown.
