You have to get someone to pick you up at LHR and drive you down to Southampton to retrieve your car.

We will be sailing on Ventura in October from Southampton to Barbados and returning to Gatwick. We live about ten miles from Southampton but P and O expect us to drive to Gatwick and leave our car there and they will bus us from there to Southampton to join the ship. they will not provide transport from Gatwick to Southampton on our return so we will be getting taxi to Southampton at the beginning and getting train back home from Gatwick on our return. We are not happy about this arrangement but is is cheaper than paying petrol to Gatwick and then paying for two weeks parking there. So in answer to your question ...if its the 24 October transatlantic trip you are doing then it's Gatwick they're flying back to ...and they will expect you to have left your car there....but your TA should have told you the details.

Sorry just noticed you are from Nottingham... so I would drive and park car at Gatwick and get the P and O transfer from Gatwick to Southampton...then your car will be there for you when you fly back. You can ring P and O customer services to verify the details of the transfer.

The Ventura flights in Oct are to Gatwick; Birmingham; East Midlands; Manchester. You choose which airport when you book your flight. P&O normally run a coach from the airports to Southampton for those that want to park their car at the airport. Alternatively, you could pick up the Evesway coach at Trowell,or Leicester Forest services and take a taxi home from the airport. Or you could take the train to Southampto.

We have also booked this cruise and live in Nottinghamshire. We are planning to get a taxi to Trowell and pick up an Evesway coach. We fly back into East Midlands and will get a taxi from there. We actually chose this cruise because it flys back into East Midlands. If you live in Nottingham there is an airport link bus from the airport back into the city via Clifton.

Taxi?? How dull. My suggestion is go to your local car hire and price a one day one way rental. Take the hire car from your local office and drop it off in Southampton. Do the same thing from whichever UK airport you come from. Cost look to pay around £100 plus fuel each way (haggle with them, I work offshore and can get a one day one way rental from Enterprise for £60). If it seems a lot just think how much easier it is than messing around with public transport or some coach company.

After having my head bitten off yet again this week for simply doing my job, I thought it was high time to set the record straight about prices and supplements for single travels and inform people of the role of the agent, i.e me.In the cruise industry we have many guests in the higher age range, down to the relaxing nature of a cruise, the luxury element, and a lot of the time, because the non-retired can’t afford the time or the money during their work schedule to take in a cruise.Nat...
