      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?

    • 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.

      Kensington, London - places for lunch

      London Jan 26, 2017 at 7:18 AM

      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.

    • Not much lodging available due to bank holiday.

      Edinburgh Feb 21, 2017 at 8:59 AM

      We are flying in to EDI for the start of a 3-week driving trip around Scotland. We arrive on Thursday 5/27 and will stay near the airport for 1 night (we arrive late in the evening). We thought we would then spend 3 more nights in a B and B in central Edinburgh. However, due to the bank holiday, many of the places where we would like to stay aren't available. So, instead of touring Edinburgh first, we thought we would head out of town and see some other sights/cities first and see Edinburgh at the the end our middle of our stay. Any suggestion of where we should go first since Edinburgh will be crowded? Thank you, Cynthia Burbank, CA

      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! :)

      Quiktrak kiosks/ticket offices...your experiences please.

      by leics Online Now May 11, 2011 at 11:28 AM

      I have two train journeys to make whilst in the US: NY (Penn Station) to New Haven, and New Haven > Boston.

      I am tempted to buy tickets online in advance a) because I suspect there may be a wider range of cheaper fares and b) because I'm not used to trains which get full-up (the vast majority of European trains cannot get full-up) and am thus a little wary of being stuck in NY (and/or New Haven).

      If I do this then I can pick up the tickets at a Quiktrak kiosk or at the ticket office. Amtrak won't post the tickets to me (fair enough).

      1. Have you found Quiktrak kiosks at Penn station (or elsewhere) to be efficient/actually working and not to have ridiculously long queues? Are they happy with European chipped cards?

      2. What about queues at ticket offices? As a general everyday rule, are US railway ticket offices besieged by customers or are queues reasonable?
