    Yes I have done the same, to return on Saturday 16th. I was thinking about changing as the French may want/need the aires. What are the dates of the bank holiday?

    they dont charge to change and unless the new time you choose is dearer. you may be able to do the change on line yourself unless you used Tesco vouchers then you have to make the call.

    Just have a shuftie on line first to find out a more suitable date/time and also the price and then ring up and change it, if the cost of the new date is more you just pay the difference, if its less though you won't get a refund. They don't actually make an admin charge for changing.

    Go early and enjoy the Kent area if you can but you may find the journey down busier during the week than at the weekend.
