Pick up your hire car at Jersey airport and enjoy this subtle blend of the best of British and the best of France, all contained within one glorious island.
"With our perfect combination of British charm and French class we really are a world apart from the mainland.”
It is indeed true that the Anglo-French influences on the island make it an alluring destination, with glorious beaches, stirring coastal walks and fantastic food.
Laid back and lovely. You won't be tearing it up till the early hours but you will feast like a king on lashings and lashings of cream.
Jersey is famed for its hospitality - you'll feel like one of the family in no time.
There's more chance of sun here than on the British mainland, but Jersey does average 33 inches of rain per year so pack a brolly just in case.
Cream or potatoes - take your pick. Or you can combine them both for total comfort food pleasure.
Fictional TV detective Bergerac, of course. The series was a mainstay of BBC drama in the 80s and gave the impression that Jersey was a hotbed of international crime. It isn't.
Over 300 islanders were sentenced to the prison and concentration camps of mainland Europe during the occupation of Jersey in World War II. Twenty died as a result.
"It's hard to imagine a more peaceful and tranquil island. Yet Jersey's landscape and the character of its people are forged by centuries of battles, exploration, struggle and reinvention." - Jersey Tourist Board

" I guarantee that anyone would love driving in Jersey. There aren't really any traffic problems, drivers are polite and you get to enjoy the beautiful surroundings. Oh, and there are no road taxes! But you should keep in mind the fact that some of our roads are quite narrow and twist and turn between the fields and farms. The maximum speed limit throughout the island is 40mph. Some parking spaces require payment by paycards that can be purchased in garages, post offices and shops but not in car parks. Those parking spaces don't accept payment by cash or credit card. "
