Jaya the orang-utanApologies for the delay in responding to your blog comments this week. I’ve only been logging on intermittently as I’ve just got back from a short break in Jersey. We flew from Southampton with Flybe, on a short 25 minute flight, yay! I rented a car from the Avis Licensee in Jersey operated by Falles Car Hire and I have to say they gave me great service. My flight was delayed due to the extra security following the recent events at Glasgow Airport and so I wasn’t at the hotel on schedule to have my car delivered. You might remember I’d booked a Mazda MX5 and didn’t have room for my luggage :o) No problem, they gave me my car at the airport and dropped my luggage to the hotel for me. That was really great, thanks guys!

I stayed at the fabulous Club Hotel & Spa in St Helier, and if you want to you can read all about it in my review on Trip Advisor (I’m EiboNewbury). I have to say the customer service skills demonstrated by the staff there were the best I’ve ever seen anywhere. However, the highlight of my trip was my visit to Durrell (formerly Jersey Zoo). It was my husband’s 40th birthday and I adopted an orang-utan called Jaya for his present. We went to visit Jaya and met all sorts of interesting people and found out about the fantastic conservation work that Durrell carries out worldwide.

As it happens, Avis in Jersey supports Durrell and do a lot of partnership activity, which can be seen by the car in this photo. (My husband hid with embarrassment when I stopped to take the photo). So if you’re stuck for a present for that special occasion, adopt an animal at Durrell! You can get to Jersey really quickly if you live in the south of England with Flybe and rent an Avis Car from the airport to get you to Durrell to go and visit your adoptee:)…
