Good find op. Will cost for me to to Stansted Airport from Leicester lol
Wait until the fines start arriving...
I am seeing prices for over £30+ each. Is that right?
Ciampino airport coach into Rome drops you off by the main station in Rome, Statzione Termini, offers a return price and is definitely more reliable than Ryanair. I always stay at a budget b&b called Hotel Luciani, 3 star rated, less than 5mins walk from drop off point. Luciani is a family run place, parents had it in 2000 when I first went (older kid helped out then), and now their grown children run it. From single bed to family rooms with bunk beds, hotel is well looked after, rooms tended to and most importantly (for me), it's a very clean hotel. Most touristy places are within walking distance Colosseum, Spanish Steps, Trevi Fountain etc and if you go to the Vatican, you need to go more than once; if prayers are being offered, some rooms are shut one morning but open next afternoon so there's always a chance you'll see something you missed previously.
Why didn't you file a small claim instead of using CEDR? Ok you'd have to pay the initial court fee, but BA would have to repay that too. Imagine if BA didn't settle... you'd then have £2000 resting on a crappy arbitration body, which if badly decided would surely predjudice the later required court case?!! I'm not sure if this CEDR is similar to adjudicators or ombudsman bodies but I've had bad experiences with both of the latter who make idiotic rulings while they are never held accountable (unless you risk £5k to bring a judicial review.) I'd never risk using them again, filing a small claim has ALWAYS been faster and more effective. At least with a small claim you know its far more independent and you can always appeal with the same no costs rule applicable.
