You can't venture North of the Border much, Traveller from UK! :)

Jersey is on a par with or slightly better than Central and Southern England, but definitely better than the rest of the UK. My friends in Glasgow are removing frost and ice from their cars this week but it's still really mild here.

If you go to www.jerseymet.gov.je you can click on the 'Jersey Climate' link on the left hand side of the page. That'll let you look at the weather stats from previous years.

Very true ninebyfive; I was in Yorkshire last weekend and it was noticeably colder than back here. We had a couple of days in Leeds where only jackets were needed, no hats or scarfs, but on arrival back in Jersey we had the car windows wide open on the drive home from the airport as we were so hot in our heavy travelling clothes!

This year I spent the first weekend of April showing a group of travel organisers around the Island and the weather was beautiful; fingers crossed for more of the same next year!

Thanks very much folks! decided Im going to arrange holiday in June for 7 days self catering. Can anyone recommend a good airline direct return from Aberdeen ? I haven't been on a plane in years and all the sites a bit baffling to me! thank you all

No direct flights, it seems... but you can book Aberdeen to Jersey with Flybe, with a connection in Manchester or Birmingham. If you book it as one ticket then your connection is protected - i.e., if your first flight is delayed it's the airline's responsibility to get you to your destination (on separate tickets you would be on your own)

Hi ninebyfive....I have to say I have not been north of the border but I did say it would probably be warmer than Aberdeen!

Jersey has a pretty good bus service - www.libertybus.je - and it looks like your hotel may be close to a bus route (their web site mentions Bus No 8)

We hired a car last time we were there, and found it convenient... but depending on what you want to do you may well find that a combination of bus and the occasional taxi ride will work for you.

Enjoy your trip - I'm sure your mum will be delighted with her Christmas present!

Taxis are plentiful but quite expensive (no 'long' trips to make up the money like in the UK) but the bus service is ok and you might choose to hire a car for a day or 2 so you can have some freedom and explore the places that the buses won't take you :)

I would hire a car for at least a couple of days so that you can explore the island at your own pace. Jersey is beautiful and there is a lot to see and do.
