'Free' flights for Wildwind Sailing Holidays from Dublin

Good news for Irish sailors planning a Greek sailing holiday. Go-ahead UK firm Wildwind, based in Vassiliki and run by Simon Morgan, is now offering free supplemental flights to London and accommodation at the Hilton Hotel in Gatwick during the early weeks of the upcoming school holidays!

Unfortunately, there are no direct flights from Scotland or Ireland to the local airport in Greece, Preveza. The bulk of Wildwind's charter flights are with British Airways on Sundays leaving London Gatwick at 8 am (arriving in Greece at 1 pm) and returning at 4.35pm (you'll leave from Greece at 2 pm). This means that most of the clients travelling from Scotland and Ireland need to stay overnight in London in order to make the morning outbound flight. Usually, you will have a convenient onward connection on the return portion of your journey.

There are very good low-cost flights to Gatwick from a number of regional airports including Glasgow, Edinburgh, Belfast and Dublin. Wildwind recommends to stay the night in London and have a night on the town at the start of your holiday. They have even made a deal with the Hilton hotel near the airport to offer Wildwind guests discounted rates.

During the period of June 30th to July 20th, Wildwind will pay for both your flight and your hotel accommodation at the Hilton or another hotel of your choice, up to a maximum of £200 per adult and £150 per child, on the basis of reimbursement of expenses for regional travel and overnight accommodation.
