Jersey Tour Package Details
Visit the ancestral home of the Poingdestre/Poindexter family. The Jersey Tour is scheduled to allow those attending the PDA Reunion in Eastbourne to extend their travels in Europe to include Jersey. A bus will take Reunion participants from Eastbourne to Gatwick at the conclusion of the reunion on the morning of June 9th.

The group will depart from Gatwick on the afternoon of Saturday, June 9th, plan to be at the airport by 12:30pm. We will return to London Gatwick the following Saturday morning, June 16th by 10:30am (exact time to be determined).
Attending the PDA Reunion is in Eastbourne, England, June 2-9th? Transpoirtation will be arranged during the reunion to take you to Gatwick to catch the flight to Jersey.
No other airfares are included in either the Eastbourne package or this Jersey add-on.
Passports and travel to Jersey and England:
Citizens of the United States will need current and valid Passports issued by the U.S. Do not wait to the last minute to order yours. Give the government at least three months to process. Information on obtaining or renewing your passport is available on the US Postal Service web site.
We strongly suggest you purchase comprehensive travel insurance that covers trip cancellation, medical, baggage, evacuation, and flight insurance. Make sure it covers everyone in your group traveling with you. Check with your credit card company for offers when you purchase your airline ticket. Buy your insurance policy within a week of the date you make the first payment on your trip (register for this package). Policies purchased later than a designated cutoff date — generally 7-21 days, as determined by the insurance company — are less likely to cover default of carrier, pre-existing medical conditions or interruption of your trip.
