My flight was late, I had booked a bus and you left me behind, you @#$%^&

We are sorry that your airline hasn’t been able to maintain their schedule.

In order to provide the most efficient and convenient service possible the bus in which you had a seat booked also needs to run to schedule. Your ticket is valid for the next available service.

We hope your airline performs better next time.

Does Gull charge for excess baggage?
We’re keeping your travel costs down: from 3 February 2020 there is no charge for excess baggage​. Our baggage allowance is in line with the standard checked and carry-on baggage allowance of the major airlines.​
 
We understand that travelling sometimes requires our passengers to bring larger items like golf clubs, surfboards and bikes. That’s why we no longer charge for excess baggage.​ If your items can’t be safely stowed, you may be asked to travel on a subsequent bus offering more storage space.​
 
We love happy passengers and our drivers will be their very best to accommodate your needs.​ If you are able, please assist our drivers by loading your luggage into the trailer or beneath the bus.
