Airline & Travel Information

Scandinavian Airlines

Services to Sweden and Norway are with Scandinavian Airlines System (SAS) using mostly Boeing 737-800 aircraft. On most SAS services our prices are based on the lowest available fare which means that passengers are seated towards the rear of the aircraft and charges apply to food and drinks. Free baggage allowance at the time of writing is 23kg per person, plus one small carry on item.

Health Information

Whether you insure through Discover the World or not, it is very important that anyone traveling to Europe carries a European Health Insurance Card (EHIC), these cards are free if obtained from the NHS.
