    • What is ideal location for hotel. Do I need to book.

      Isle of Wight 11 hours ago

      We will be arriving on 1st July. We are only staying 2 nights with a car. Looking at the map would it be better to stay at Newport or Shanklin. We basically want to drive around the island and look at sights and shops etc.

      Bing July should we book first or drive onto island and hopefully find accommodation that we would like. We are both in our sixties.

    • 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?

    • Question about a layover

      Heathrow Jan 5, 2017 at 4:00 PM

      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.

    • Help! ways to get to Cambridge, UK from Harwich on a Sunday

      by teriterese Online Now Jul 24, 2012 at 12:36 AM

      Help! My family of 5 is traveling from Hook of Holland on the Stena line and arriving in Harwich on a Sunday morning. Car rental companies are not open so we need to get to Cambridge, where we can pick up a rental car. What is the most reasonable way to get to Cambridge? I checked into Greater Anglia train/bus but I must pick the tickets up at a self service machine station and Harwich is not one of them. Also, we do not reside in the UK, so we do not have a postal address in the UK?

      Any suggustions?

      I am travelling to Paris prior to cruising on the RCCL Jewel of the Seas. How the heck do I get to Harwich from Paris? I know EasyJet has a cheap flight to Luton, but I cannot figure out how to get from Luton to Harwich. There do not seem to be any cheaper flights from Paris to anywhere near Harwich.

      by 123skybird Online Now Oct 14, 2007 at 2:27 PM

      We dock in Harwich and I need advice. We want to take the Dutchflyer to Amsterdam. We will have to take the night ferry because I'm not sure we could get off the ship early enough to take the morning trip. So we will have 12 hrs to "do" Harwich. I would also like to send one piece of baggage to Dublin, because I fear we'll be over the Aer Lingus baggage allowance. We're flying from Amsterdam to Dublin and then home. I'm trying to get rates from either the Postal service or
      UPS(Mailboxes etc.)It doesn't need to be overnight express because we'll be in Amsterdam for 4 days & Dublin for 4 days. Also, where could we store our bags while we sightsee? There are 4 of us ages 66-77, interested in history, military and good local food. Thank you for any help!!! Elenore PS-trip in April 08.
