Good point Stevescoots. I tend to fly to the departure point the day before and have a layover, with an old friend in Oslo it is nice to catch up over one of Europes most expensive pints!
Martyn, was curious about what you said regarding travel insurance, in fact you made my heart miss a beat. I have 2 annual travel policy’s, one for business trips, and a family one for non business travel. Do you think with the family policy I am covered for my Oz trips via Oslo, generally using a different airline to Oslo than the intercontinental journey?
