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

      Isle of Wight 7 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?

    • 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.

      by MartinZ5 Online Now Feb 29, 2016 at 12:20 PM

      How can I go from Luton Airport to Preston?
      I saw National Express busses, but it's make no sense. It's cheeper to go to London Victoria and then to Preston, because directly from Luton Airport to Preston it coasts about 38 pounds, and from London to Preston is 10 pounds with the same bus. I can't understand. If someone can share better transport I'll be very thankful.

      Best Way to Get to Luton Airport

      by Nishk87 Online Now Dec 7, 2012 at 12:26 PM

      Hi VT-ers,

      I've not been on here in absolutely ages, hope you're all well!

      Can anyone help me with the question outlined in the title please? When I'm looking to book a train, it's asking me whether I'd like to go to the Luton Airport Parkway (and from there I presume I'd take a bus. How long is this bus journey?) or if I'd prefer to get a train straight to the airport. There is a price difference of about £10 between the two (the parkway being a cheaper option, even with the us fare on top) so I'm just wondering if there is any point in getting the more expensive option and getting a train that goes straight to the airport?

      Thanks for all your help!

      Hello all. I'm flying out of Luton for the first time next week, and need some advice about traffic congestion.

      I'll be driving from the Travelodge at Hockcliffe to the car park at Slip End, to arrive at about 8.30am. My sat-nav says 10 miles and 20 minutes, but I hear bad things about congestion on the the A5 through Dunstable. Can't afford to miss my flight! So how much time should I allow for the journey?

      Any advice gratefully received.

      Taxi from Luton Airport to Stony Stratford Milton Keynes

      by Paisleypaul Online Now Feb 3, 2010 at 1:50 PM

      M'luds & ladies

      Myself and a colleague are flying to Luton Airport late on a Sunday late March- I understand a taxi to Stony Stratford in Milton Keynes is about £60+. We may be in time for a late bus to MK but that alone is £33 between us and still to get a cab to Stony Stratford.

      Any suggestions, such as a non airport based hire cab company that may be less or are we stuck with £60 (and is that figure correct?)

      thanks
