"We would just like to say a massive thank you"

We would just like to say a massive thank you to you and Frontier as we had a wonderful time in Canada and saw some amazing sites/experiences. All the travel arrangements were perfect and ran really smoothly. We have used Frontier twice to Canada and on both occasions you have produced amazing packages that have matched our requirements and expectations. We have again recommended you to family and friends and when we next look to book travel to North America you will be our first point of call.
