Start and finish your holiday in style with our included 'VIP Home Chauffeur Service'. If you live within 50 miles of your chosen international departure point, you can be picked up and dropped off from your doorstep as part of your Cosmos Holiday. Cosmos will explain the details when you book and you can choose to be picked up from your home address, or an alternative if it is more convenient and still within 50 miles of your chosen departure point. Your driver will contact you 48 hours before you are due to leave, to arrange a suitable pick up time. If you live more than 50 miles by road from your chosen departure point you can still take advantage of the service by paying for the excess mileage at £1.70 per car, per mile.

This service is only applicable to the UK mainland and is subject to change and availability.
