Planes, trains and rental cars
Unless you’ve been stuck in a cave for the last 24 hours you can’t fail to have noticed that there’s been the small matter of an erupting volcano in Iceland disrupting the skies across Europe.
With flights grounded for a second day and closures at most major European airports, describing the situation as chaotic would be an understatement!
With an a total of 17,000 flights expected to be cancelled today alone, passengers are looking for alternative modes of transport to reach their destination.
However finding an alternative to air travel is proving to be very difficult for thousands of stricken passengers.
With ferries across the channel and the eurotunnel already experiencing a surge in demand, travel between the UK and mainland Europe is more difficult than ever.
Those willing to drive the distance can turn to car hire, but demand is high as passengers begin to realise that flight cancellations for another day are fast becoming a reality.
Four Sixt UK staff members know this better than anyone else. Having landed in Munich on Wednesday their flight has been cancelled twice and their vist extended unexpectedly by 48 hours. A 12 hour road trip now ensues, arriving home in the same suits they left in 4 days ago! We will let you know how they get on.
