    • Waterfalls where a Mobility Scooter could access?

      Isle of Arran Yesterday

      Hi,
      Visiting Arran tomorrow for the first time. My husband has Parkinson's Disease so we are a bit limited in what he can do. We would love to see a waterfall. Are any accessible by mobility scooter?
      Any other suggestions for beautiful places to see during that are either accessible by scooter or no more than 250metres to walk?
      Thank you so much

      Short connection Terminal 5 and Terminal 2

      Heathrow May 4, 2015 at 8:36 PM

      Hi everyone,

      I have booked flights with Singapore Airlines from Edinburgh to Singapore next month. I arrive at Heathrow Terminal 5 at 0925on a BA flight and leave from Terminal 2 with Singapore Airlines at 1130 so just over 2 hours connection time.
      Will this be enough? I'm not sure if I can check my suitcase through from Edinburgh as I don't think there is a Singapore Airlines check in there.(The BA ticket was bought through them though.)
      I'm panicking a little as, although I know Singapore Airlines will be obliged to get me back if I don't make the connection, all the later flights seem to be full and I have an onward connection to New Zealand that I need to get.
      I'd really appreciate any advice. 3

    • Is 90 minutes enough time between landing at T3 and departing from T5?

      Heathrow May 24, 2015 at 2:08 AM

      I'll start by saying that for me it wasn't. My airline's reservation staff in Australia booked a flight from me and my brother to Croatia via London, so I assumed I had enough time. We were trying to visit our father who was critically ill in hospital. The inbound flight landed at 6:55am and the outbound was due to depart at 8:30am. We didn't deplane for almost 15 minutes after landing. I now know that the average shuttle bus trip time including waiting is 20 minutes, but at that time there was a huge queue, and it took us over 30 minutes. So with all the walking and the bus trip, we didn't get to the "ready to board" desk in T5 until 7:55 - about 45 minutes all up - and we were refused entry. We still had multiple security stages to get thru, and boarding closes at 8:10 due to having to catch a shuttle bus to the plane, which takes about 5 minutes. We only made it to the boarding pass checking desk by 7:55 by running and jumping queues once we got into T5, so I don't think we were given anywhere near enough time, but my airline refused to take any responsibility and we had to stay a night in London (we had to pay for the hotel ourselves), which proved to be decisive in terms of why we were in a hurry to get to Croatia.

      Britrail England Pass vs Railcard

      England May 18, 2015 at 6:11 AM

      I am visiting Europe for approx 1 month and will be spending the first 6 days in England, using London as a HUB point to stay and taking day-trips around the area. I have done research and am stuck between getting a Britrail England Pass for $218 or getting a youth railcard for $30 which offers 34% off train fares... for convenient/affordable travel on those day trips.

      Was wondering if anyone had any insight? I figured the railcard will give me a little more flexibility and could potentially save me more money if I take less trips out of London than I am planning but the Britrail England Pass is much more convenient for getting on/off trains and not having to worry about tickets.

      I fly from Kuala Lumpur to land LHR T4 on 21 June, 4.20pm. I plan to take a BA flight to Geneva departing at 8.00pm. Do I have sufficient time for immigration custom and the terminal transfer and then check in for this BA flight? Hope someone know this can help me. Thanks a lot.
