Cheers mp. More expensive than I'd anticipated then.



Hope I haven't put you off.

Not as cheap as India/SL but cheaper than Oz

It is the "internal" flights that look v.expensive. and i guess if you fly in and out via different ports the return flight would cost a bomb too. Unless you just do 1 test but would rather do at least 2.

Hoping to do two of these depending on venues, (really want to to go to Trinidad) and dates. Can't believe the ICC think it acceptable not to have an away test series for the biggest band of travelling support for 15 months.

Flying into one island and out of the other shouldn't be much if any more expensive than flying home from the same place, It depends on the availability of the flights. If you can fly a few days before the start and after the end you should find the flights slightly cheaper. than arriving in the day before and going home the day after.

But then you need to spend more on accommodation!!

Have never been to the Windies before but looking to do so in 2015. Are most of the grounds away from the more 'tourist' areas? Am considering 10 days or so encompassing a Test. I'm particularly thinking about Barbados if there is one there.

If you're looking for a caribbean holiday with a bit of cricket mixed in Barbados is by far the best option (if there was only one test in the series it would be in Barbados).

Mass market tourism is on the south coast where there are plenty of busses into Bridgetown. Then it's a 15 minute walk to the ground.

Thanks Hector - I'll get Oz out of the way this Winter then start saving!

If we are playing down in Trinidad then Tobago is a must visit, absolutely stunning.

Island hopper flights daily from Port Of Spain, around 20 mins and pretty cheap or you can get ferry/speed cat.

3 Tests April 2015, all Windies decent players will be away at the IPL!


Windies don't have any decent test match players.

Just so I can get it out of the way early, can I have a moan about the venues in advance. I predict Jamaica, Antigua and Barbados.



Barbados then Antigua..great April holiday..cant wait

I'm keen to get to WI in 2015, long held ambition to watch England in the Caribbean. I contacted Gullivers and they told me venue announcement would be fairly imminent, although flights can't be booked until May 2014.
