      Off-Peak Day Return question

      England Feb 2, 2016 at 3:49 AM

      I understand that the off-peak tickets are only valid after 9:30 in the morning. But I haven't been able to find out if they are also bound to a specific time in the afternoon. Can they be used on any train when going back? Or is there a certain rush hour, when all the commuters travel back and the off-peak ticket is not valid? I don't want to be bound to a specific train, but the difference between this ticket and an anytime return is more than 11 GBP so I'm thinking about getting it. This is for the London-Cambridge-London trains.

      Thank you for your help.

      I'm Colombian trying to book a flight from Houston, TX to Barcelona, Spain. With British Airways. My flight will have a conexion in London Heathrow for 2 hours. I will arrive at T5 and departure will be at T3. I WOULD LIKE SOME HELP figuring out if I will cross uk border when I go from T5 to T3 to catch my conexion flight? And if I will need a visa

      According to this article from the uk government website

      Colombian nationals will be able to transit airside through UK airports without needing a Direct Airside Transit Visa (DATV).

      Colombian nationals will still need a visa if they want to cross the UK border for any reason, whether to visit or change flights. If a connecting flight is from another airport, passengers will still need to get a Visitor in Transit Visa before passing through the UK.

    • Walking from Terminal 5 to Staines Moor

      Heathrow Jan 12, 2016 at 9:59 AM

      Hi everybody!

      In May I will arrive at terminal 5 and will have more than six hours before my connecting flight (also T5) departs. I know I'll need plenty of time for security, but I think there should nevertheless be enough time for a short walk outside the airport. I am thinking of walking to Staines Moor and maybe spend an hour there. My questions: Is it feasible? Can I walk from terminal 5 to Staines Moor or is that practically impossible because there are only big roads? Has anybody done this during a stopover? If so, do you recommend it? If you think it's a bad idea, can you recommend any alternative?
