What our clients say about this program:
"We booked our first trip to Ireland through Lynott in 1987 and were very pleased. I chose Lynott over others as your packages were a better value and much more affordable without sacrificing quality."

"It has been a few weeks since we returned from Scotland. Just wanted to let you know that we had a wonderful time and that the people were very friendly. Overall, we enjoyed our stay and thank you for your help. We plan on returning to Scotland in a few years."

--- James Brown (no, not that James Brown)

Why use vouchers?
If you would like the ease of traveling without having to carry cash to pay for accommodation, you may wish to purchase our Accommodation Vouchers. You simply decide each evening where you will be heading the next day and phone ahead for a reservation. Should problems arise finding accommodation when in Scotland, contact our local office, or seek advice and assistance from your B&B host/hostess. She/he will assist in booking subsequent night/nights for the cost of a telephone call. We do not recommend purchasing B&B vouchers in Edinburgh. An inexpensive hotel provides a wider choice of accommodation, and would be more readily available. Click here for vouchers only, without a car.
