Doing More … Design your holiday to suit you.
When you book your holiday with Zenith Holidays, you can be confident that we will be there to help make the whole experience as smooth as easy as possible.
During the week before you leave, we will call you to make sure you have all you need or to provide any help or assistance in some last minute touches - but, before then, do make sure your passport is valid (not required for Jersey) and peruse our upgrade possibilities - you can book up to 2 weeks before you travel but do be aware that some things will sell out - airport parking and the Meet & Greet service often do on peak holiday dates and the "Fetch-my-luggage" service is bound to be popular on busy weeks so do book that early.
If you need an airport hotel or even some "tried & tested" car games for the kids for the drive down, let us know or book them online - once you have booked your holiday, all these extras can be added in your own secure booking area.
Have a great holiday!
