Terminal Information – Departing
Flybe usually fly from Manchester Airport's Terminal 3. Free Wi-Fi is available for up to 60 minutes for every passenger, and there's an Escape lounge for those who enjoy a bit of luxury before they fly (prices start at £19.99 per person).

There are three places to grab a quick bite and a coffee: Caffe Nero, Upper Crust, and Costa. There's also an Italian restaurant, Trattoria Milano, if you're really hungry.

You can leave your passport at home: you only need your driving license to fly within the UK. Try to arrive at least 90 minutes before your flight is due to depart, or earlier if you have luggage to check in. You should also give yourself more time if you're flying during a busy period. School holidays, weekends, early evenings and early mornings are the busiest times for airports.
What to expect in Inverness
Similar to Manchester, the weather in Inverness is famously unpredictable. If you're visiting during the summer it's a good idea to pack your waterproofs and a few jumpers as well as your warm weather clothes. Despite being on a similar latitude to Juneau, Alaska, the temperature in Inverness is fairly mild. It's usually about 14°C in July and August, and 4°C in January.
One thing to watch out for is the currency. Scottish bank notes are different from English ones. Most establishments in Manchester are happy to accept Scottish bank notes, although some businesses do raise their eyebrows. To be on the safe side we recommend either withdrawing cash before you leave Manchester, or only take small amounts of money out of the ATM at a time.
The midnight pub curfew ended in 2013, and it's now possible to find some great nightlife in the city.
