Saturday afternoon, we will drop off our car in the car rental village and take the shuttle bus to the Radisson Blu hotel next to the terminals. Our flight is around 11am the next morning back to the US. Would like your help with the following questions:
1. My husband bought some goods and would like to get the VAT refund. Can he do it the night before since we are next to the airport or does he have to do it after we check-in the next morning?
2. I've read that the Radisson Blu restaurant is not very good and is expensive. Is there anywhere to eat within walking distance (this is for dinner)? If not, is it practical to take the train into Manchester and eat there?
3. Does anyone know the GPS coordinates for the car rental villages. It will probably signposted from the motorway but I like the extra insurance of the GPS.
