Volcanic Disruption 2011 - Travel Thread. Is your flight canceled? Take the bus!

Posted in Travel tips

Many flights were canceled over the last few days primarily between Ireland and Scotland and from Scotland to other destinations. However, this event doesn't change the fact that people still need to travel. In such situations, very often people don't know how to organize the alternative transport.

If you're one of those people who do not know what to do, follow the text of this post until the end.

You live in Ireland or in the north of the UK and your flight is canceled, you can still travel, just move to other means of transport, namely bus or coach.

To help these people who are in this situation, these links should hopefully help them out:
