      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 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.

      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?

      by debjames3 Online Now Jun 5, 2014 at 8:11 PM

      We are just beginning planning our second trip to Britian. Coming from the US (dallas) the last time we spent a week in London and 4 nights north including York and Blenheim Castle areas etc. This time we plan to spend 4-5 nights in London, and then 6-8 nights driving around. The other areas on our list include Portsmouth, Stonehenge areas, and Oxford, the cotswolds, Stratford on avon and Warwick Castle. We are big Inspector Lewis/Morse and Downton Abbey fans. Im trying to figure out how many nights we should allow for the oxford area, and whether we can just stay there and visit the cotswolds, Stratford on avon and Warwick, or should we just concentrate on Oxford, and then move on to a hotel/b&B at the other places? Again, just starting to plan - so any advice appreciated. We don't like to be scheduled every minute but to allow some down time to enjoy the country and its citizens. Thanks!

      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...

      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!

      B & B in Oxford

      by crmartins Online Now Sep 26, 2010 at 9:26 AM

      Hi everybody!

      I'm planning on going to Oxford in November....it's been hard to find a place to stay as it seems to me that it's a little expensive. Do anyone has a suggestion on places to stay like a B&B? It doen's have to be too good. Having breakfast and placed in the city will be great and enought!

      Thanks in advance!

      Where to stay?

      by dldkag Online Now Feb 22, 2010 at 9:32 AM

      I'm considering my first trip to Oxford at the beginning of May, and I have a couple basic questions:

      1) If I have only 1 day to visit (from noon Saturday until about 4 pm Sunday), what part of the City would be the most practical for seeing the sights?

      2) What hotels in that area would you suggest? Cost is less an issue than comfort.

      Thanks for your suggestions.

      Does anyone know if the English concession travel card can be used on the Oxford Park and Ride bus?
