From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Lloret de Mar is a Mediterranean coastal town in Catalonia, Spain. One of the most popular holiday resorts on the Costa Brava, it is 40 kilometres (25 miles) south of Girona and 75 kilometres (47 miles) northeast of Barcelona. With a population of 39,363 in 2009, it is the second largest town in the Selva comarca of Catalonia.

Lloret de Mar attracts summer visitors on package tours. Its main beach (length: 1,630 m; width: 45 m; small, gravel-like stones) is one of the most popular Costa Brava beaches and is consistently awarded the Blue Flag for cleanliness.

The organiser, Mike Hulligan, is on the 1855h Liverpool to Girona, hoping to be at the hotel around 2300h. Returning on the 1715h.
He booked his accommodation through TravelRepublic and has taken the 'all inclusive' option. Both Ryanair and TravelRepublic practice discriminatory pricing, so the better deals are to be had by booking now or the day before travel.
