Clermont!

Love that. Great away trip. Definitely winnable too. They aren't quite the force they were.
What would you recommend is the best way to get there? :smt017
Nothing is showing at the moment, but it seems the best way is a flight from Birmingham.

Sorry for the link...

Looks like destinations are very depleted currently due to COVID. Porto and paris listed on the airport website and

Good news sounded serious with him being carted off to hospital so quickly in an ambulance

We are undecided whether to fly from either Birmingham/Luton or get Eurostar which goes to Clermont with a change over in Paris.

I couldn't find any flights from Luton to Clermont, only flight from Birmingham to Clermont is Air France, change in Paris, takes a long while and costs approx £220 return, basically same price as Eurostar, which also involves a change in Paris and also takes a long while. Other routes are available but will involve car hire.

Just posted in the Clermont specific thread, can get return flights to Limoges from East Midlands for just over £100 on skyscanner, problem is with Covid they only fly on Sat and Tue so would really need it to be a Sunday game. (Or Friday could work at a push)
Used to run around with an 11, 14 or 15 on my back.
