Austria Trip

Hi All,

We have a few cancellations for Austria. We can make name changes on the flights without charge up to 2 weeks before we depart, so a substitute will simply slot in.

The dates again are from the 9th to the 16th August, departing from Dublin. The cost is €629.00 to include flight, coach transfer, 7 nights hotel accommodation on a half board basis. Please contact me if interested as soon as possible.

Liz
