Voice of Travelers to Granada

Trip to Granada

My family decided to take a trip down to Granada. We live in Seville and decided it was about time we left our city to head to Granada. We started by getting an air ticket to the destination. We used JetBlue for the air ticket to the place. They had ticket discounts for groups. We were five of us so the ticket discount would come in handy in saving costs. Granada was only a couple of hours away from home so within no time of boarding the plane we arrived. Granada was much more pleasant to the eye than we expected. We had such a great time in Granada. We decided as a family to get a ticket back next fall.

School trip to Granada

My name is Nancy Bella. My school organised a trip to Granada University whom they had a partnership with. The school arranged everything for us including the vias and air ticket. The got us the air ticket from FINNAIR. The return ticket was from jetBlue. This was because the airline offered special ticket options for students. It took us ten hours to get to Granada. The service by the crew in the plane to Granada was substandard as I remember asking for a drink which came almost an hour later. The place was great when we finally arrived. Students from the school took us round the various places in Granada. On our way back home the service in the FINNAIR plane was way better, I would advise any traveler to get their ticket from them.
