BACKGROUND In Jan 2006 we booked a holiday with Thomas Cook, due to some work being carried out on the beach where we were staying they advised us to cancel our holiday with a full refund and book something else. Top marks for Thomas Cook. However, this happened three weeks before we were due to...

MONARCH PREMIUM SERVICE? – IT CERTAINLY IS NOT! This was our first and hopefully our last flight with Monarch; we have in the past avoided flying long haul to the Maldives with Monarch, mainly because of the many bad reviews we have seen. However this year the island we wanted to stay on was only...

This is about Monarch scheduled flights not charter, I thought it best to make that clear! Monarch scheduled flights operate to Spain including Alicante, Barcelona and the Balearics, the Canary Islands, Portugal and Cyprus. It uses most UK airports, but mainly Birmingham, Luton, Gatwick and...

Recently having travelled out to Spain and back with Monarch via Gatwick Airport I thought I'd share my opinion of our travel experience. Having travelled with Monarch several years ago, I recall not being overly impressed but having more recently travelled a couple of times with Ryan Air, I...

“Not quite like royalty”

ProReasonable fares, very helpful staff.

ConsNeeds a little more leg room!!!

I have just got back from seeing my sister in Spain. I decided to fly with Monarch purely for the fact that they offered the cheapest flight. On the dates I WANTED to travel, Easy jet were offering a return flight for £350 at the cheapest. I got mine for £137. Quite a difference I thought. Then...

It had been a couple of years since my family and I had last been to Spain, mainly because we didn’t want to take our daughter on a plane while she was at the fidgety age of 18 months. Now that she’s two and a half it was time to travel abroad once more. So Spain it was (Granada in particular)...

I came to be flying by Monarch Airlines after booking a holiday to Egypt with Cosmos (both these reviews to come later). As you can imagine it was quite a long journey departing from Manchester at 10.00 am and arriving in Egypt at about 5.30 p.m. our time. To do my review I’ve broken it...
