    • Transit Visa

      Heathrow 3 hours ago

      This is in continuation to my earlier question answered by you. My airlines says that I need to check in the baggage again(though I will be having hand baggage only).
      So the facts are that
      1. I am Indian citizen having a valid canada visa
      2. will need to change terminals 2 to 4 for taking the connecting air canada flight. (Air india and air canada flight tickets booked on same ticket with a time gap of 3 hrs)
      3. Airlines say that I need to check in the baggage again (though I will be having hand baggage only).

      So what do you suggest should I get the transit visa and which type

      London Jul 6, 2015 at 7:50 PM

      Hello all! I have 2 days that I am trying to plan but I am lost on the how to's and if it can be done. Idealy on day one I would like to do Windsor and then go back to the hotel in london. Then on the second day train to bath see the roman baths, the jane austin centre and the circus (we have been to bath once before and are going with newbies - this is all the are interested in) then going out to the cotswolds to see Castle Combe and Bibury and that direction. We only want to see a few towns (2 or 3) before heading back to bath for dinner, then train back to London. I also thought that we could do windsor and cotswolds by rental car on day one. Stay the night someplace in that area and then on to bath the next day spending the day looking/shopping and heading back to london that night. What would be the best option?? I am uneasy about driving on the other side of the road so would option 2 not be a good idea or is it not a big deal? Thanks!!

      Heathrow Jul 27, 2015 at 4:54 AM

      Hey everyone,

      My boyfriend is flying in from Australia and landing in Heathrow at 6am on Wednesday and then flying to Amsterdam at 3pm that afternoon. I'm flying into Heathrow tomorrow night and sleeping in arrivals so I can surprise him when he lands. I am now worried that he won't need to go through customs and go through arrivals. The second flight to Amsterdam isn't on the same ticket as his original flight so does it count as a connecting flight? Or will he have to go out through customs before he catches his next flight?

      Cheers, Monique :-)

      UK train low cost tickets London-Newcastle

      by g.l.s.h Online Now Sep 17, 2014 at 11:42 PM

      Good day!

      During my visit to London this Dec. I intend to travel for 2 days to Newcastle. I've noticed that when booked in advance, train tickets can go as low as 16 pounds one way. The reservation system allows bookings for some 2.5 month in advance, which means that 8-9 Dec. bookings can be booked as for yesterday.

      My question is for those whom are familial with these tickets: when I search dates (Mondays, always) in Nov. or even Dec. 1st I can see these 16-28 pounds tickets available, however for Dec. 8-9 ALL tickets go for 120-150 pounds! which is a fortune when having a small family, and in comparison to domestic flights that go for 45-55 pounds (and which I want to avoid). Are these dates have any "special" demand for train tickets to Newcastle, or is it that the system starts publishing the special "book in advance" fares only a bit later?

      I would wait a bit for the low cost option, but if be advised that these dates would most likely be stable on the 120-150 pounds tickets, I would just take the flight option.

      Thanks!

I'm moving to attend Newcastle Uni and he will be joining me and transfering his job. We have never been to the UK before and have so many questions! Here is what we really need to know:

      1) City Centre or Quayside? Which is better for the under 25 crowd? Pros? Cons? Pricing isn't a huge factor since we are coming from such an expensive city in Ca.

      2) Mobile phones: we have tmobile currently and are considering going with Tmobile UK upon arrival. Good idea?

      3) Dog: we are bringing our 4yr old dog with us. Is Newcastle (generally) a pet friendly city?

      4) Rental (or letting) policies: what is generally required to let a flat or home in England? We will have a deposit prepared but are there specific documents required?

      5) Culture: I am a biracial young woman (Italian/Black American.) Are there many types of people in Newcastle or will we be looked down upon?) We come from such a diverse city, I want to know what to expect!

      6) Banks: Which bank(s) are best for temporary accounts? We will be in Newcastle for 1-1.5yrs

      7) weather: we know it's cold and rainy usually....right?! Does it ever get hot or snow?

      8) Driving: I am terrified of driving on the opposite side of the street! Will I need a new/different drivers license to drive in the UK? Or since I have a valid Ca license, will that work?

      Anything else that you would like to share would be so helpful to us! We appreciate your help! Looking forward to our journey!
