      Shipping PC

      Derry/Londonderry Jan 27, 2017 at 3:00 PM

      Hi guys, I'm heading to Londonderry for a 2 months. As I'm programmer working remotely i will have to bring my PC with me. As I'm in Czech Republic right now taking it on the plane is not an option. Do you have any idea how to ship it safely and in possible cheapest way?

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

      Isle of Wight Jan 23, 2017 at 11:42 AM

      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.

    • Gatwick to London plane due in 21.45

      Gatwick Feb 12, 2017 at 11:44 PM

      Hi, Can someone please help me as this is doing my head in! We land at Gatwick at 21.45 and need to travel to York. What is the best way to go about this? Get into London and stay overnight in a cheap hotel close to Kings Cross and then set off the next morning. I take it the trains run around the clock, not knowing how long we may be held up in Immigration etc.

      Thanks in advance.

      I am visiting the V&A Museum with three friends. Can anyone recommend somewhere for a reasonably priced lunch, other than the museum itself. Two of us are vegetarian. Thanks.

      A Big "High Five".

      United Kingdom Jan 25, 2017 at 8:30 AM

      Yes I know this is not a travel question but I put it here deliberately. Please don't move it to miscellaneous as it's aimed specifically at all the people who follow or have helped out in the UK Travel forums.

      Of the top 30 Travel Forum Gurus here on VT, 5 are from the UK. That's 1 in 6. For a relatively small nation far outnumbered by the rest of the world that's quite amazing.

      Not withstanding all the other international members who have helped out with invaluable information about the United Kingdom. Well done and thank you everyone.

      It's now time to delete the direct link to UK Visa rules in my browser, probably one of the most asked questions ever on VT and enjoy my virtual retirement.

      A big "High Five" to everyone for making this the best travel forum in the world.

    • Mobile Phone Carrier?

      Scotland Jan 27, 2017 at 9:26 PM

      We plan to purchase our first smart phones before visiting Scotland in June. Are their providers you would recommend and/or any we should avoid? We'll mostly be in Edinburgh and the Highlands.

      (The more I learn, the more excited I become in anticipation of this trip.)

      How sad that this site is closing! The Scotland page has been so welcoming and helpful! Many thanks to all who've responded to my questions.

      18 days. England, Scotland or Ireland?

      United Kingdom Jan 23, 2017 at 3:49 PM

      Hi. I'm planning to travel by myself on my 26th birthday in May. I want to spend approx 18 days to visit UK. I am not into big cities and more interested with beautiful relaxing scenery (castles, mountains, lakes). I am planning to fly into London and spend maybe 2-3 days just to see the big ben and other touristy area then off to somewhere relaxing. Do you think I can visit both Scotland and Ireland in this timeframe? If not, which of the two would you recommend in terms of beautiful scenery? Also, would it be better if I hire a car and drive or take public transportation? Thanks in advance! :)

      Attractions to choose in half-a-day trip, Mini Van query!

      by csuresh Online Now Apr 29, 2013 at 6:56 AM

      We are a group of 4 adults and 3 kids wanting to goto Isle of Wight. We will be travelling by a rental mini-Van. I have three questions a) considering that I will half a day, can you help me filter out the best ones to visit b) place that will be very scenic to have some photo memories and c) Am I need to be concerned about mini van size - is it easy to onboard, park and take it out of the ferry. I have gone to this place 13 years ago but with a small car and could not remember much from that trip except that I went and returned to/from that lovely place.

    • Best car route to see as much as possible

      by BlueWilz1 Online Now Jul 28, 2011 at 1:21 PM

      Hi - we're planning to visit the Island in Sept coming into Ryde and out again via Yarmouth. I was wondering what the best driving route would be to see as much as possible. We have limited time so would like to take in an overview of the place so we can return in the future. Thanks.
