Just want to say a big thank you for organizing the trip to Carteret.

We all had a great day and the golf club were very hospitable and well organized for the day!

We would definitely love to book on again for next year should they run the trip again.

We are back safe & sound after our Paris & Disney trip. We all had a brilliant time, young & old!!!!! There were no problems on the trip back. And it went smoothly except for a bit of rolling on the boat!!!!

It was lovely to meet you in St Malo and really appreciate you coming to our rescue when the train was cancelled. The Pullman was a great hotel & so too the Newport where we could easily walk into the parks.

Thank you so so much for all your hard work in organising our trip. It has made a great Golden Wedding gift to our children and  their families with lots of memories.

You have given us 5* treatment and will have no hesitation it recommending you & I Travel to anyone else.

Thank you again from The Minchinton’s & Belhomme’s & all the best to you.

Just a quick email to thank you for helping with the booking this year for our school pupils.

They had a fantastic time in France last week.

The boat and the coach went very smoothly.

Good morning team,

A just a note to say a big thank you for organising this trip for me.  The hotel and staff have been absolutely 💯 fabulous, kind, and friendly. Even the taxi service was excellent.

Please let me know of any future trips and put my name forward for the next Fete de Ramparts

Just a quick email to say we had a fantastic day in Carteret last weekend, all the guys enjoyed themselves and I'm sure the other golfing groups did as well.

The course was good, there was plenty of food and drinks provided and the staff at the course did a great job keeping everyone hydrated!!!  If you have the opportunity, please pass on our thanks to them.

If you are running this type of package next year with the breakfast and buffet after golf included please keep me in mind, our group would definitely be interested again.  The shotgun start was also a very good idea, meaning groups didn't need to hang around before playing.

This comes to say a big thank you for a well organised and incredibly enjoyable trip to the Fete des Remparts 2023. The boat was on time, the taxi was waiting, the taxi-drivers both to and from our hotel were truly charming, and as for the Hotel Mercure Jerzual, well, I could only find praise for every aspect of my stay with them. In fact, I have just been on Trip-Advisor, saying how happy I was with everything.

Cant wait for the next Fete des Remparts in 2025. It was good last time, but this time, it was even better.

Thanks again!

Just a note to say thank you again for going the extra mile on Saturday.

To get any karting in after that delay was fantastic. Everyone in the group really appreciated it.

We had a superb weekend with everything running smoothly after the initial delay.

Great service as ever. No doubt I’ll be in touch in future.

I would just like to thank you very, very much for arranging our St Malo shopping trip for yesterday. We all had a brilliant day and thanks to your help it all went very smoothly - the transfer vehicle and drivers were great.

We often do this and it would be good if we could ask you to arrange any of our future days out too. Once again -  big thank you from us all

Just thought I would drop you an email to say thanks for organising the Carteret trip for me yesterday (Saturday 10th)

The day trip was brilliant and the meal at Le Noroit restaurant in Barniville was excellent.  Also thanks for organising the taxi from the Carrefour in Barniville to Carteret.

Looking forward to contacting Itravel in 2023 for further trips to France.

Thanks once again

Just to let you know that the trip went very well with the cars behaving themselves but on occasions

not the owners!!

All the hotels were very good but it must be said that they all suffering from lack of staff and several we had to

wait for our rooms bearing in mind we usually arrived around 4.00pm. We all thought that Hotel Abbaye de Fontevraud

was the best with an exceptional meal at their restaurant where we went for the Tasting Menu (wine for every course)!

We thought it was the best meal we have ever had! Because we were there for Saturday/Sunday after dark there was the

“Soleil Luminaire” played out on and in the Abbaye – spectacular.

You had warned us that the restaurants on the Monday/Tuesday would be closed but with the help of the Hotels we were able to get simple meals without having to use the cars. All in all a very successful trip.

Dear Emily,

Thank you for your help with this.

I am pleased to say that we had a really lovely visit to Sark today. The horse drawn carriage ride was a real highlight.

Good morning, just wanted to let you know we had a wonderful time at Sark yesterday. We were given a really comprehensive tour of The Dixcart Hotel, it really is a beautiful hotel. Lunch at Stocks what a nice setting and the finishing touch the tour by horse and cart. It absolutely made our day to see the Dixcart Hotel thank you for all your help to make it happen.

We had an excellent time in France. The golf courses were in very great condition. Auray was a really nice place to base ourselves. The timings all worked well.

Looking forward to our trip next year. Will be in touch.

Kind regards

Jersey Travel

In a prime location between the UK and Western Europe, Jersey is an ideal destination for tourists looking for weekend breaks, long family trips and adventure holidays. With short travel times and convenient schedules, Jersey travel could not be more of a breeze. Whether you are travelling to Jersey by air or by sea, you have a great range of options in terms of travel days, times and departure destinations. Arriving into Jersey is also incredibly straightforward with Jersey Airport located less than five miles from St Helier , well connected by public transport and offering numerous car hire options on site. Meanwhile, the ferry port Elizabeth Terminal is located centrally in St Helier and served by both Condor Ferries and Manches Iles Express. Not to mention, once you have arrived, the island is incredibly easy to navigate and find your way around. Travelling both to and around Jersey is convenient and simple, making your Jersey holiday a breeze.

Quick Links

What Documents do I Need to Travel to Jersey?

Before you travel, it is advised that you check the validity of your passport or identification. If you are not using your passport, please check the accepted forms of identification with your airline or ferry operator. If you are travelling with a car or pet, also make sure you have all the correct documentation required for entering and travelling around Jersey.

It is advised to confirm COVID-19 travel requirements prior to departure. As requirements and guidelines are subject to change, it is therefore advised to check the guidance for entering Jersey, any country you are travelling from or through and the requirements of the airline or ferry operator you are travelling with. Further COVID-19 travel advice can be found below. With the status of COVID-19 constantly changing, it is also worthwhile checking the latest guidance for Jersey so you know what to expect and follow guidance when you arrive.

To save you time on arrival, it is also best to have a plan in place of how you will be getting to your accommodation. Jersey Airport offers car hire options, public transport, taxi services and private transfers. Car hire, taxi services and private transfers can all be booked in advance. Elizabeth Terminal is located centrally in St Helier and within walking distance of many hotels as well as public transport links. The central transport hub Liberation Station is a 10 minute walk from the ferry terminal. A taxi rank is available 50 feet from the terminal, however, availability is limited so it is recommended to pre-book a taxi service. Car hire options are also available and companies will meet customers at the terminal before transferring to the depot for car collection. If you are bringing your own car into Jersey , a satnav is beneficial to help you navigate your way to your Jersey accommodation .

Do You Need a Passport to go to Jersey?

Yes, as all arrivals to Jersey will be arriving by air or plane, passports or an alternative accepted form of identification will be required to travel with your chosen airline operator.

For UK and Irish citizens, identification is not required for entry to Jersey as it falls under The Common Travel Area, however, identification will be required to board a flight or ferry. Please confirm accepted forms of identification directly with the airline or carrier.

However, your pet must have landed legally in the UK if originating from abroad. There is no requirement for your pet to have had any vaccinations to enter Jersey.

For passengers travelling by ferry with a pet, no documentation is required for carrying your pets from the UK. However, pets arriving by ferry from France will require additional documentation to depart France and arrive in Jersey.

The Common Travel Area

The Common Travel Area is a long-standing open borders arrangement between the UK, Crown Dependencies and Ireland. The arrangement allows freedom of travel between the United Kingdom, the Republic of Ireland, the Isle of Man and the Channel Islands . UK and Irish citizens can freely travel throughout The Common Travel Area without a requirement to carry identification for travel or immigration purposes.

COVID-19 Jersey Travel Requirements

As of the 7th February 2022, any previous travel requirements in relation to COVID-19 under the Safe Travel Policy are suspended.

You can travel to Jersey via ferry either with a car or as a foot passenger on Condor Ferries. Travelling by ferry with a car gives you the freedom to explore Jersey in your own vehicle, bring any four-legged friends with you and enjoy no luggage restrictions. Travelling as a foot passenger is often more budget-friendly than flying as well as having a 25kg personal luggage allowance which is significantly more generous than that of airlines. Foot passengers do not need to pay for transporting a bicycle with them and for an additional charge, other large items can also be transported including camping gear, filming equipment, and surfboards.

Condor Ferries offers excellent on-board facilities including Wi-Fi, a children’s tv room, a duty free shop, and a number of dining options. Travelling by sea also offers the benefit of travelling with stunning panoramic views from the ship’s lounge and decks as well as the opportunity to enjoy a scenic approach to Jersey.

There are no direct flights between Jersey and any of the other Channel Islands. Flights from Jersey to Alderney have one change and require a stop-over at either Guernsey or Southampton. The islands of Sark and Herm do not have their own airports.

Jersey Travel by Sea from the Channel Islands

Jersey is well connected by sea to the neighbouring Channel Islands. The most frequent service is between Jersey and Guernsey with sailings operated by both Condor Ferries and Manches Iles Express. Condor Ferries operate 6 sailings a week with a journey time of 2 hours whilst Manches Iles Express has a shorter sailing time of 1 hour and 20 minutes with 4 sailings per week.

All flights via Malaga, Tenerife and Mallorca are with BA CityFlyer through Fly Direct, a tour operator specialising in direct flights to and from Jersey, Guernsey and the Isle of Man.

Jersey Travel by Sea from Europe

As Jersey is just 14 miles off the coast of France, it is surprising that no airlines operate flights between France and Jersey. However, visitors from France can travel to the island quickly by sea.

Condor Ferries currently operate a regular route from St Malo in France to St Helier. This high-speed ferry crossing on board Condor Voyager has a journey time of just 1 hour and 25 minutes. The direct route operates 3 days a week during the Winter running Friday to Sunday with additional sailings on alternative days during any school holidays. The route also increases to daily sailings between the peak season of July and September.

Condor Ferries allow passengers to take cars and pets on board with them. European travellers boarding the ferry with a vehicle need to provide an international driving permit and a country sticker in addition to a driving licence and insurance documentation. Travellers transporting pets from France to Jersey need to provide documentation that their animal complies with the Pet Travel Scheme.

In addition to the route between St Malo and St Helier, Manches Iles Express operates a ferry service between Jersey and Granville in the French department of Manche in Normandy. The crossing takes just 1 hour and 25 minutes and runs year round. The weekly schedules vary but sailings are a minimum of twice weekly with up to 9 sailings per week. Daily crossings are available between July and September. Manches Iles Express does not transport cars or pets but bicycles can be carried for an additional charge.

Getting Around Jersey

Once you have arrived in Jersey, your next travel step is how to get around. The island has great options for car hire and an excellent public transport system with walking and cycling are also popular transportation methods to explore the island.

Car Hire in Jersey

The easiest way to navigate Jersey is by car and with so many car hire companies across the island, vehicle rental could not be more straightforward. Car hire is a great option for visitors to Jersey who want the freedom of driving but are flying to the island and therefore cannot take their own car. Car hire is available directly from the airport, ferry terminal and central locations across Jersey. It is advised to pre-book your car hire option prior to travelling however, vehicles are also available if you decide at the last minute to rent a vehicle.

Europcar, Hertz and Avis all have dedicated desks in the departures terminal at Jersey Airport with cars on site. All other car hire companies will meet you at arrivals and transfer you to their vehicle collection office. Elizabeth Terminal at Jersey Harbour does not have on-site car hire options and companies will meet you at the terminal to transfer you to their depot.

To rent a vehicle, you will require a valid driving licence, a credit or debit card and international travellers will also need an international driving permit. A charge will be applied to your credit or debit card as insurance against the car and will be released on a satisfactory return of the vehicle. Some companies only accept credit cards so please double check this with the car hire company if you are planning to use a debit card. Car hire companies have different driver requirements and it is therefore advised to confirm with the individual company but most require drivers to be over the age of 25 and have held a full driving licence for a minimum of 1 year.

Bringing Your Own Car to Jersey

If you would prefer to navigate Jersey in your own vehicle , you can do so. You can bring your own vehicle to Jersey when travelling by sea with Condor Ferries. Condor Ferries allow transportation of cars to Jersey on all services from the UK, Channel Islands and France.

For UK citizens bringing their own car from the UK or a neighbouring Channel Island, you will need both a valid driving licence and valid vehicle insurance.

For international citizens bringing their own car from France, you will need a valid driving licence, valid vehicle insurance and an international driving permit.

All cars entering Jersey require a country identifier displayed clear on the rear of your vehicle. The country identifier should include both the letter code and flag of the country. If your vehicle displays a country identifier as part of the licence plate, an additional sticker is not required.

Please note, for vehicles from the UK, the GB sticker is no longer valid as of September 2021 and must be replaced by a UK sticker to comply with UK and European laws. An additional sticker is required for UK vehicles with a licence plate identifier stating ‘GB’ or ‘EU’ which must now be supported with a UK sticker.

Public Transport in Jersey

Jersey has an excellent public transport system with a regular, reliable service operated by Liberty Bus . Liberty Bus has a variety of routes across the island including frequent connections from the airport and ferry terminal to central locations and points of interest. Tickets can be purchased both on board and at Liberation Station in St Helier. SIngle, multi-day and family tickets are all available and it is advised to purchase any multi-day tickets at the station to receive a durable card rather than a paper ticket which would be obtained should you purchase on board. Timetables can be found online or are available from Liberation Station.

Please note, face coverings are currently mandatory on public transport in Jersey.

Cycling and Walking in Jersey

A great way to explore the island is by getting out into nature and discovering Jersey by foot or bike. Jersey has great walking routes and cycling trails including almost 50 miles of ‘Green Lanes’ that prioritise pedestrians and cyclists over vehicles. Maps and route information for both walking and cycling can be found online or available at the Jersey Tourist Information Centre. If you are travelling by sea, Condor Ferries allow bicycles on board free of charge whilst Manches Iles Express has a small additional charge. Alternatively, numerous shops can be found across the island offering both short term and long term bike hire with a variety of different bicycle options.

These are the best, and worst, times to drive to the Jersey Shore for Memorial Day weekend

Thursday marks the first day of Memorial Day weekend travel with millions gearing up for their getaways.

In and around New Jersey, thousands of people are preparing to drive to the Jersey Shore which typically comes with plenty of time sitting in traffic, especially during a holiday weekend.

Here is everything you need to know about Memorial Day travel this year including the best times to embark on your journey down the shore.

Start the day smarter. Get all the news you need in your inbox each morning.

Record number of road trips expected

Road trips are projected to set a record, according to AAA which expects that 38.4 million people will be traveling by car over Memorial Day weekend.

In total, 43.8 million travelers are projected to go 50 miles or more from their home over the holiday weekend.

This number of road trippers is up 4% compared to 2023 and 1.9% compared to pre-pandemic levels in 2019. It is also the highest number for the holiday since AAA started tracking in 2000.

The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey is expecting 4.2 million travelers to use its bridges and tunnels during the holiday period, a number consistent with the same period in 2023, according to a PANYNJ press release. In order to accommodate the expected volume, repairs and construction projects at all crossings will be suspended from 5 a.m. on Friday until 5 a.m. on Tuesday.

The best times to drive on Memorial Day weekend

Drivers who plan on traveling on Thursday or Friday are advised to hit the road early in order to avoid mixing with commuters, according to INRIX , a provider of transportation data and insights.

If you plan on heading home Sunday or Monday, INRIX recommends that you avoid afternoon hours when return trips will peak.

These are the best and worst times to travel by car throughout the holiday weekend, per AAA and INRIX.

  • Thursday, May 23: Best time to travel is before 11 a.m. and after 7 p.m.; Worst time to travel is between 12 p.m. and 6 p.m.
  • Friday, May 24: Best time to travel is before 11 a.m. and after 8 p.m.; Worst time to travel is between 12 p.m. and 7 p.m.
  • Saturday, May 25: Best time to travel is before 1 p.m. and after 6 p.m.; Worst time to travel is between 2 p.m. and 5 p.m.
  • Sunday, May 26: Best time to travel is before 1 p.m.; Worst time to travel is between 3 p.m. and 7 p.m.
  • Monday, May 27: Best time to travel is after 7 p.m.; Worst time to travel is between 3 p.m. and 7 p.m.

"Travel times are expected to be up to 90% longer than normal," said Bob Pishue, transportation analyst at INRIX. "Travelers should stay up to date on traffic apps, 511 services, and local news stations to avoid sitting in traffic longer than necessary."

Air travel Memorial Day weekend

According to AAA, airports are also bracing for a spike in travel with an expected 3.51 million air travelers during the holiday weekend. This number is a 4.8% increase from last year and a 9% increase from pre-pandemic levels in 2019 marking the most crowded Memorial Day weekend for airports since 2005.

The Port Authority is expecting nearly 2.2 million passengers to travel through Newark Airport, John F. Kennedy International, LaGuardia and New York-Stewart International airport between Thursday and Tuesday, according to a press release from PANYNJ.

Travelers are encouraged to plan ahead and allow for additional travel times. PANYNJ recommends that passengers on domestic flights arrive at least two hours in advance of their departure time and passengers on international flights arrive at least three hours in advance.

You can check out the Port Authority's air travel tips for tips and tricks as well as information regarding TSA security lines, parking lot availability and more. Travel tips can be found at panynj.gov/airports/en/aviation-safety/travel-tips.html .

PATH advisory

The Port Authority also released a PATH advisory stating that on Memorial Day, Monday, May 27, trains will operate on a Saturday schedule. For further information about the PATH schedule, you can download the mobile app RidePath or visit panynj.gov/path/en/planned-service-changed.html .

AAA is anticipating that nearly 2 million people will travel by buses, cruises, and trains. These modes of transportation got hit the hardest during the pandemic and, with this holiday weekend, have finally made it back to pre-pandemic numbers.

"We haven't seen Memorial Day weekend travel numbers like these in almost 20 years," said Paula Twidale, senior vice president of AAA Travel. "We're projecting an additional one million travelers this holiday weekend compared to 2019, which not only means we're exceeding pre-pandemic levels but also signals a very busy summer travel season ahead."

Update: 4 N.J. counties under a coastal flood advisory until early Thursday morning

  • Updated: Jun. 06, 2024, 12:49 a.m. |
  • Published: Jun. 05, 2024, 9:58 a.m.
  • Advance Local Weather Alerts

An updated coastal flood advisory was issued by the National Weather Service on Thursday at 12:46 a.m. in effect until 5 a.m. for Mercer, Gloucester, Camden and Burlington counties.

The weather service says, "Up to one foot of inundation above ground level in low-lying areas near shorelines and tidal waterways."

"At this level, flooding begins on the most vulnerable roads along tidal waterways. Some partial or full road closures are possible," explains the weather service. "If travel is required, allow extra time as some roads may be closed. Do not drive around barricades or through water of unknown depth. Take the necessary actions to protect flood-prone property."

Breaking down weather alerts: advisories, watches, and warnings

  • Flash flood warning: Take action!

A flash flood warning is issued when a flash flood is imminent or occurring. If you are in a flood-prone area, move immediately to high ground. A flash flood is a sudden violent flood that can take from minutes to hours to develop. It is even possible to experience a flash flood in areas not immediately receiving rain.

  • Flood warning: Take action!

A flood warning is declared when flooding is on the verge of happening or is already underway.

  • Flood advisory: Be aware:

A flood advisory is issued when flooding is not expected to be bad enough to issue a warning. However, it may cause significant inconvenience, and if caution is not exercised, it could lead to situations that may threaten life and/or property.

  • Flood watch: Be prepared:

A flood watch is issued when conditions are favorable for flooding. It does not mean flooding will occur, but it is possible.

Be flood-ready: Expert guidance from the weather service for your safety

Floods can pose a significant threat, especially if you live in a flood-prone area or find yourself camping in a low-lying region. To ensure your safety, the weather service offers essential flood safety guidelines:

1. Seek higher ground:

  • If you reside in a flood-prone region or are camping in low-lying terrain, the first step to safety is relocating to higher ground.

2. Follow evacuation orders:

  • If local authorities issue an evacuation order, heed it promptly. Prior to leaving, secure your home by locking it.

3. Disconnect utilities and appliances:

  • If time allows, disconnect your utilities and appliances. This reduces the risk of electrical hazards during flooding.

4. Steer clear of flooded basements and submerged areas:

  • Steer clear of basements or rooms where water has submerged electrical outlets or cords. This helps prevent electrical accidents.

5. Evacuate promptly for safety:

  • If you notice sparks or hear buzzing, crackling, snapping, or popping noises, evacuate immediately. Avoid any water that may be charged with electricity.

6. Stay away from floodwaters:

  • Never attempt to walk through floodwaters, even if they appear shallow. Just 6 inches of fast-moving water can forcefully sweep you off your feet.

7. Seek high ground if trapped:

  • Should you become trapped by moving water, reach the highest point possible and dial 911 to contact emergency services.

During heavy rainfall, there is a risk of flooding, especially in low-lying and flood-prone areas. Remember to never drive through water on the road, even if it seems shallow. According to the NWS, as little as 12 inches of rapidly flowing water can carry away most cars. Stay safe by being prepared and informed.
