    • Traveling from Miami to Delhi via Heathrow - Do I require transit visa to travel from T 3 to T 5 ?

      Heathrow Aug 29, 2016 at 11:43 AM

      Hi All

      I am an Indian citizen and I am travelling from Miami (USA) to Delhi (India) via Heathrow. I have a valid US B1 visa.
      The flights are -
      1. MIAMI to Heathrow (BA 206) - Terminal 3
      2. Heathrow to Delhi (BA143) - Terminal 5

      I did checked the UK visa site and it says, if I have a valid US visa, I do not need a transit visa.
      I just wanted to check from anyone with same flights if this is the case.
      Any help is appreciated.

      Thanks

      On previous visits to the area we've used the bus to get from moreton-in-marsh to Chipping Campden. We want to use a car service this time. Can anyone recommend a taxi service for this relatively short (12 k) trip?

    • transportation between terminals

      Heathrow Aug 21, 2016 at 10:45 AM

      I have a 6 hour layover in Terminal 5 and want to go to Yotel at Terminal 4. Can I go there without a ticket showing connecting flight out of terminal 4? Can I go there without going through customs? If this is possible, where do I go in terminal 5 to find the transportation? Is there a fee?

      Dorset - art/craft/glass shops and independent shops

      England Aug 8, 2016 at 1:12 PM

      Hi,

      I am looking for craft like places to look at for shopping in Dorset, so pottery places/glass places, etc. I know about Poole pottery, but am really looking for small independent craft places. I have searched, but can't really see many places in Dorset (am staying near Sturminster Newton and will have a car, so can travel). If anyone can help, I would be really grateful.

      Thanks for reading this even if you can't help :-)

      I'm traveling from Iran to Canada and I have a 5 hour layover in Heathrow. I arrive at terminal 4 with Ethihad airlines and depart from terminal 2 with Air Canada. Apparently I'll need a transit visa if I pass through control border. How can I make sure if I will and I need a visa.

      There are several Hop On Hop off in London, each covering different routes and places of interest. If we have only time to do one, which one is recommended? We will be staying at the Americana Hotel near the Sherlock Holmes and Madam Tussauds Museums. Thank you

    • Long layover - how much time REALLY?

      Heathrow Aug 29, 2016 at 12:27 PM

      Arriving LHR from US at 9:05a in T3. Departing T5 at 10:40p (almost 14 hours). I want to go into London, and leave my carry-on at the Excess baggage counter. That means returning to T3 to get my bags, then transferring to T5... How much time do I REALLY have to tour? Or put another way, when must I depart downtown London (via the Underground, not Heathrow Express) to safely make my flight?

    • Airside Transit Query in Stansted

      Stansted Aug 19, 2016 at 12:16 AM

      Hi All, I hope someone can respond to this - many thanks!

      Very simply, I'm aiming to fly with Ryanair from Glasgow to Stansted, then pick up another Ryanair flight from Stansted to Cork. I'm travelling on an Irish passport, and I'll have hand luggage only.

      I have slightly overly 1.5 hours to do this, and my question is this: is it possible to stay 'in transit' and therefore disembark at Stansted, check the flight information board when I arrive for the Stansted to Cork departure gate, then make my way to that gate WITHOUT having to go thru immigration and re-circulating via security etc.?

      When I have disembarked (from other flights) via Stansted I have noticed a 'flight connections' sign, and assumed that that was in place for that very purpose, but I'm not entirely confident about this.

      Many thanks again.

      I will be arriving on Aer Lingus in terminal 2 at 12:40 but have a separate flight that I need to board out of terminal 5 on BA at 3:15. Will this leave me enough time to get through baggage claim, security, customs and bag checking, etc?

      Manchester long-term car parking, driving in UK with a "wrong" car

      Manchester Aug 6, 2016 at 5:18 AM

      I fly regularly to Texas. With a lot of electronics both way we strongly prefer non-stop flights.
      So far the DME-IAH flight of Singapore Air served us the best.

      In their infinite wisdom Singapore Air changed their flights to Munch / from Munich and to Moscow / from Moscow so neither can be used.
      Instead, they fly now from Singapore to Houston via Manchester.

      Questions:

      - What is the best way to get from Alsace to Manchester by car?
      - My car is quite "wrong" for UK, even with the right-hand drive car it's a challenge for me to drive there. How to manage that?
      - How the channel - tunnel operations do work? I do have a Title and a Registration - but not the usual European paperwork, so the curb weight of the car is not indicated. Do I need to contact the manufacturer for the weight data or it is irrelevant on the ferry or the train?
      - Normally (at least in RU) it is not rude to ask (in advance!) the airbnb host to park the car on his/her premises (i.e. in the garden or private driveway) while I am in Texas for few weeks.
      How is it in UK? Is it rude?
      - What is the best area in Manchester which is good for the airport transportation (and probably leaving the car for few weeks safely)

      Thanks

    • change in plans made after ticket purchase.

      Heathrow Jul 31, 2016 at 3:45 PM

      We arriving from MSP - LHR on 01/10/16 on DL 10 arriving in Terminal 4 at 12:15 pm and instead of staying in London on the front part of vacation we have decided to continue on to Munich instead. Contacted Delta. No interlining of luggage with anyone. I was told that to change my business class ticket to now include Munich would cost an additional $8,000 dollars per person. No way. I mentioned to her that there is a flight on BA leaving at 16:35 out of terminal 5 and she said that would be enough time so I booked a separate ticket on BA. Is this doable? Getting nervous.

      Travelling by train and coach/bus in England

      England Aug 6, 2016 at 9:24 AM

      I am planning to explore England by public transport (train/coach) for two weeks in September. So far I haven't really decided about the exact destinations. These could be both Cornwall/Devon as well as Northern England/Yorkshire.

      So what are your tips and tricks to get the best deals for train or coach trips. Is booking online and well in advance always the best option? Where should I book then? I have checked the BritRail Passes, which are only available outside the UK, but actually they still seem to be way too expensive even compared to normal fares.

      Are there any discount cards or anything like this, which might make sense for me even for a two weeks trip.

      Any help is much appreciated. :-)
