Important notes (please read the launch email – click here to read the email).
  • We will not be organising a group flight to Prague because of the number of different options available. If you do want to travel by alternative transport to coach, you are fully responsible for booking, paying for and catching any flights, as well as airport transfers. You will still have to pay the price for the return coach transport as we need to get your seat to Prague!
