      Specialist advice re coach holidays

      United Kingdom Jan 9, 2017 at 2:58 PM

      We have a long established local company that organises local day trips, theatre trips as well as short and longer holiday breaks in the UK and Europe..
      We have, so far, only used them to take us to and from events in the Wales Millennium Centre in Cardiff.
      They have an excellent reputation amongst local people who have used then for longer holidays in the UK and overseas.
      . We are considering a coach and Eurotunnel trip to the Austrian Tyrol. 8 days in all.
      Can you please advise me if we should see any particular details of affiliation to any travel authorising associations ABTA - that sort of thing.
      They are www.europeanheritagetours.com
      We usually travel independently with full Travel Insurance but now octogenarians like the idea of sitting back and enjoying the view with somebody else at the wheel
      I would be very grateful for any advice you can give.
      Thanks

    • how much money do you need to be granted a visa to visit the UK for 1 or 2 weeks?

      England Dec 25, 2016 at 12:22 PM

      In order to have the visa application approved, you need to show that you have a certain amount of money, the means to look after yourself for the duration of your stay and to get back to your home country on your own. You need to show that you have a reason to return home.. The person who will visit me from morocco is a student who wants to visit the UK for 1 or 2 weeks, they can also stay with me in my house so there is no need to pay for a hotel or anything like that, even food I would provide everything. But we dont know how much money they must show is in the bank account for the visa to be accepted or denied. There seems to be no guideline about any kind of threshold. Does anyone know more about how much money is needed for the visa application to be accepted?

      I am from the USA and traveling internationally for the first time to Newcastle. I have a layover at Heathrow during the travel. I know in the USA you have to go through immigration and customs at the first port of entry into the country. Do I have to go through immigration and customs before I catch my flight to newcastle? I am traveling with American Airlines for the whole trip.

    • VISA Question

      London Jan 1, 2017 at 5:01 PM

      Hello, guys. Here I have some dilemma. Due to UK's Immigration procedure, citizens of Ukraine need to obtain VISA to step on Her Majesty's soil. But, there are also some rumors that once you have NATIONAL LONG-TERM VISA (in my case, I'm currently holding National Long-term student VISA of Spain) from any EU/Schengen Agreement country, you could travel to GB without another. Please, reply me as soon as you can, because I've tried several times to figure it out both in UK's Government website and Spanish. None of them replied. Thank you in advance.

    • Traveling with baby for 1 month in Scotland. Help please!

      Scotland Dec 31, 2016 at 10:14 AM

      Hi there,

      My husband and I are planning a trip to Scotland in the month of June. As we will be traveling with our baby daughter, we're hoping to find an area to base ourselves for the month (or split our time between two home bases; a couple of weeks in each place). We will be renting a car from Glasgow and returning to Glasgow at the end of the month. We would like to see the Highlands (possibly the Isle of Skye) and castles. Any suggestions would be appreciated! Thanks!

      Northumberland or Kent?

      United Kingdom Dec 27, 2016 at 10:48 AM

      We're taking an 8 day trip to England and I have one free day to choose between two options. We'll either be doing a tour at the beginning of the trip, from Edinburgh to Alnswick Castle, the Holy Island, and the Northumberland coast - OR we can do a one day tour from London to Kent, Leeds, and Dover. I'd been interested in Northumberland and the Holy Island as I have a Scandinavian heritage and also have traced lines back to the Northumberland area, and have also heard about the beautiful, remote landscape. However, this tour will be a lot of time spent scenic driving. The other tour will be rushed, but allow me to see Kent, Leeds Castle, with a stop at the cliffs of Dover. Which would you suggest?

    • Seeking info on gettting to Bute from Greenock

      by vickimay Online Now Jul 1, 2010 at 11:30 AM

      We'll be in Greenock on Sunday, August 8 (as a kicking off point to Glasgow). However we have friends who are from the Isle of Bute and their family has graciously offered to entertain us for the day. We understand we need to take a ferry. I have a ferry schedule from Wemyss Bay. Is that in Greenock or nearby? Can we walk there from the cruise ship or will we need transportation? If we need transportation what are our options? Appreciate any and all info. Thanks!

      My family will be traveling to Greenock on September14 as part of a transatlantic cruise. We would love to see some of the country side, but do not want to go on ship tours.
      Is it possible to do some of the walks up into the hills in a few hours. Is it easy to get around, can you hire a cab or taxi?
      Any information of things to do that will give us some feel for the country side and be able to do on our own will be appreciated.

    • Cruiseship terminal and Greenock attractions

      by daju22 Online Now May 28, 2006 at 6:58 AM

      Hello,
      We will be visiting Greenock in September. We have a mobility scooter. Would like to get off the ship and walk around Greenock for a couple of hours. What route would you suggest we take and what sights should we look for? Hopefully, there aren't alot of cobblestones as they make for an extremely bumpy ride! :) We have this map of Greenock:

      inverclyde.gov.uk/portal/ind...

      Is the Ocean Terminal where the cruise ships dock?
      Could we walk to the McLean museum?
      Any other places you would recommend for an easy walk?

      Or should we take a tour to Glasgow, the Lochs,or Stirling Castle?
      Sorry for all the questions, but previous passengers say there isn't alot to do here. We usually love to walk around the ports and see local attractions.
      Thank you for your time and help.

      Thanks so much for your help.
