FAQs

1. What’s the difference between Comfort and Quality accommodation?

Our Comfort and Quality options both offer clean and comfortable rooms with private bathroom facilities. Quality accommodation offers you that bit extra for an even better travel experience. This could be a room with a view, or more character in the interior design.

Accommodation options in the Quality category are normally standard rooms at 4-star hotels, or superior rooms at 3-star hotels. They also have good, full-service restaurants.

Good to know: At some accommodation options, Wi-Fi might not be available in your room but should be accessible from communal areas.
