Useful links for guests coming from the UK

The following websites may be of use when you are arranging flights, car hire and insurance:


Generally, is the place to visit to book your flights.  It is a comparison website which searches the major flight sellers and gives you a list of prices, cheapest first.  When booking flights, you will need to be patient when trying to find the best price.  Generally speaking, you should you able to find a return flight to Boston from the UK for under £300, prices go up and down daily and it is often said that Tuesday and Wednesday nights are the best time to book flights.

Canadian affair occasionally has some good deals on flights to Montreal (3.5 hours drive), Halifax (5 hours drive) and Toronto (10 hours).  These are direct flights, leaving from various UK airports.

Car Hire:

We have always used for car hire, they use Dollar and are generally one of the cheapest.  More often than not you can also upgrade to unlimited drivers and get a tank of fuel for free.  The cars are great too.


We highly recommend Atlas Direct for travel insurance.  They offer competitive rates for single trips and annual policies.  They can also accommodate you if you have medical issues (but you will need to call them to discuss this).  Alternatively, has a travel insurance comparison section which you may find useful.
