So when Andrex began offering two flights for the price of one in return for nothing more stressful than buying two kitchen rolls, I was first at the check-out. Having waded through the small print, I shall not be first at the check-in.
The cheapest flight of the deal is Heathrow to Paris for pounds 130, or pounds 65 per person. But you have to add pounds 2 tax and pounds 23 insurance. So pounds 90 per person does not look such a good deal compared with a fare of pounds 79, including tax, through Nouvelles Frontieres (071-629 7772)
With Andrex, you have to book at least four weeks in advance (more stringent than the most restrictive Apex deal) and stay a Saturday night. The Nouvelles Frontieres fare can be booked at any time and is valid for any length of stay up to six months. If I want to clean up on cheap flights, I will not use Andrex. Does anyone want to buy two kitchen rolls?
