  • "Travelling with my Mother"

    Took my 97 year old mother to a special birthday celebration on the island. She is blind and uses a wheelchair. The loading crew ensured we were parked in an area easy for us to leave and return to the vehicle and for me to unload/load the wheelchair. Courteous and helpful staff. I did phone before travelling to explain our situation and also mentioned it when checking in. The whole process was stress and trouble free. Highly recommended.
