      Accommodations

      London Apr 7, 2014 at 3:40 PM

      Tossing around the idea of picking up a pair of tickets to the Monty Python show at the O2 in July, most probably on the 20th. My son (27) and I (57) would be attending together, and spending 4 or 5 days in London, arriving by air to either Heathrow or Gatwick. Looking for suggestions for accommodations - easy access from/to the airport would be nice, easy access to the O2 (tube okay) even better; room doesn't need to be 5 star, just clean and safe - hotel, hostel, b&b all okay. Thanks!

      Harwich cruise logistics

      London Apr 7, 2014 at 10:13 AM

      I'm looking at the logistics for a Harwich - Copenhagen cruise. It's been some time since I've been in London, but never found the trains too difficult. Any suggestions my thoughts of staying a few days in London, then taking the train to Harwich in the AM to board the ship? Or would it be better to travel the day before and overnight in Harwich just to be on the safe side of the trip?

      At the end I'm debating on taking Easyjet (or other) from Copenhagen back to London to attempt at some round trip savings on air fare from SAN in the US as opposed to two one-way trips. Thoughts from those that travel Europe frequently?

      Driving in the UK countryside.......

      by spacedust Online Now Sep 17, 2012 at 12:11 AM

      Hi,
      I intend to rent out a car from Hertz in Oxfordshire..... I have never driven abroad and hence have a few queries
      1) What does the term "unlimited miles included" mean? Also, what all forms of "insurance" or "additions" are a must to be safe (the website lists a huge range of can-be-chosen-inclusions)
      2) How far is this place "Osney Mead - Ferry Hinskey Road" from the centre of Oxford town or Oxford Railway Station?
      3) Whereas where we live, parking is not very heavily regulated & One can always find a familiar road or a parking lot to push the car into; however, in a place like London I am sure this would not at all be the case. However, in these small towns, like Chipping Camden or Bourton on the water or the Slaughters is parking regulated extensively and what does one do in case one doesn't know of parking spaces..... Also, is it a crime to just park by the roadside when one travels from a village to another
      Please help... As this will form the basis of my decision to drive or take the bus...
      Cheers

      by ahr268 Online Now Sep 10, 2012 at 2:12 AM

      Hi all,
      I know it's not really a "travel question", but I am starting a job in Oxford in three months and 'm planning to visit from New York for a few days to do some preliminary apartment hunting. My question is: how do real estate agents operate in Oxford (and, I guess, in the UK in general)? Is it like in the US, where you hire an agent and he/she searches for an apartment for you from all available sources, explains the process, helps with paperwork and, then, takes a 1 month commission? Or is it that the agent is solely a representative of his agency and shows you only those apartments which his agency is listing? I've emailed a couple of agents but they were sort of unclear. My web searches also didn't help much. If anyone has had experience in this department or can point me to a good website I'd really appreciate it!
      Thanks!

Add to that I also need to book online, transfer money and make a plan to make the best of my 2-3 weeks stay. Can someone please who went to oxford before or knows about it give me steps to make the most of my travel or at least just steps to get there or any general pointers or any mistakes that I shouldnt make.

      I got a passport and a bank account. And I choose oxford because I always wanted to go there. I am 21 years old. First goal is to prepare for and pass IELTS. Then visit places where I can do new things that are exclusive to oxford and visit colleges.

      Sorry about my bad english language , thats why I need an english course

      Oxford from Toronto

      by Kaspian Online Now Jun 6, 2012 at 11:30 AM

      My brother is trying to get into Oxford this summer, but his dates fall right near the beginning of the Olympics and plane prices to London from Toronto are insane! We have low-cost flights from Toronto to Manchester (and then he'd have a 3-hour train ride--not bad for a Canuck), and I've also suggested he check flights into Cardiff.

      So my question is: Is there any other major airport hub around Oxford he should be looking at? Maybe he could fly from Toronto to Ireland or something and then onto cheaper carrier to a smaller English town? Any ideas? I really don't know all the airports in the area.
