The Aspire Road Test

A car for the Spring. Mazda MX-5

Until we reach summer proper holidays are likely to be restricted to mainland Britain.  From April onwards the roads of our island will welcome locals and tourists alike.  What is needed is a car to enjoy the highways and byways, and best done in an open top sports car.

If you are young, or feel young, there is only one car, at a sensible price, that meets the requirement, and can be used all the year round.

The million selling Mazda-MX5.  Read the full review in Business Travel News

British Airways and Dettol

The name ‘Dettol’ may be synonymous with childhood and protection for cuts and bruises but it is a serious hygiene tool and Britain’s biggest selling disinfectant.

Supported by the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, British Airways (BA) has teamed up with Reckitt Benckiser (RB), owner of the brand, to offer customers a range of Dettol products in the air and on the ground.

Once on-board BA will be introducing a Dettol antibacterial hygiene wipe. Each customer will be handed a packet containing the wipe as they board the aircraft.  Covid-19 has made us all more hygiene conscious.  

New Greek hotel

With the name of MarBella you would not expect a brand new hotel to be in Greece, but it is.  The MarBella Elix opens in April in the Parga region, served by British Airways summer flights from Heathrow to Aktion National Airport (PVK).

The Travel Timetable

From Monday 29 March, people will no longer be legally required to stay at home which means that domestic air travel will no longer be restricted for work purposes only.  The airlines will be busy and likewise the trains. Take advantage of the current cheap prices and make your reservation early.   Book your Aspire Lounge visit well in advance.

Good Friday is 4 April and Monday 6 April a Bank Holiday in all four home countries except Scotland. 

Monday 12 April is the date that the airline industry looks forward to when the reconvened Aviation Taskforce publishes its report which will presumably answer questions regarding the current air corridors.    

Five weeks later, Monday 17 May, hospitality opens up again and the airlines internationally can really begin to take off.

21 June has been set as the date that all legal limits on social contact will be removed. 

TNU advice is when booking a holiday always use a credit card, either through an ABTA accredited travel agent, or direct with an airline.
