      Specialist advice re coach holidays

      United Kingdom Jan 9, 2017 at 2:58 PM

      We have a long established local company that organises local day trips, theatre trips as well as short and longer holiday breaks in the UK and Europe..
      We have, so far, only used them to take us to and from events in the Wales Millennium Centre in Cardiff.
      They have an excellent reputation amongst local people who have used then for longer holidays in the UK and overseas.
      . We are considering a coach and Eurotunnel trip to the Austrian Tyrol. 8 days in all.
      Can you please advise me if we should see any particular details of affiliation to any travel authorising associations ABTA - that sort of thing.
      They are www.europeanheritagetours.com
      We usually travel independently with full Travel Insurance but now octogenarians like the idea of sitting back and enjoying the view with somebody else at the wheel
      I would be very grateful for any advice you can give.
      Thanks

    • 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.

      Hi there,

      My husband and I are planning a trip to Scotland in the month of June. As we will be traveling with our baby daughter, we're hoping to find an area to base ourselves for the month (or split our time between two home bases; a couple of weeks in each place). We will be renting a car from Glasgow and returning to Glasgow at the end of the month. We would like to see the Highlands (possibly the Isle of Skye) and castles. Any suggestions would be appreciated! Thanks!

      Northumberland or Kent?

      United Kingdom Dec 27, 2016 at 10:48 AM

      We're taking an 8 day trip to England and I have one free day to choose between two options. We'll either be doing a tour at the beginning of the trip, from Edinburgh to Alnswick Castle, the Holy Island, and the Northumberland coast - OR we can do a one day tour from London to Kent, Leeds, and Dover. I'd been interested in Northumberland and the Holy Island as I have a Scandinavian heritage and also have traced lines back to the Northumberland area, and have also heard about the beautiful, remote landscape. However, this tour will be a lot of time spent scenic driving. The other tour will be rushed, but allow me to see Kent, Leeds Castle, with a stop at the cliffs of Dover. Which would you suggest?

    • New Bus Station drop off at Sophia Gardens

      Cardiff Aug 8, 2015 at 1:16 PM

      I booked a room at the Sleeperz Hotel right next to where the Central Bus Station/train station is (or should I say was) not realizing that on Aug 1 they shut it down for construction. Now we are getting dropped off at Sophia Gardens and I am a bit worried as my coach bus from London arrives at 2:20 in the morning. I have never been to Cardiff (am from the US) and wondered if it is relatively safe to walk this at night? If not, is there a public bus I can take or will taxis be my only option? (And will there be an easy to flag taxi or do I need to prebook this)? I thought I picked the best hotel as it was right next to the station so I am a bit upset - but thankful I realized this now and not at 2 in the morning on the side of the road! Thanks for any advice you have!

      Can anyone recommend a modern hotel near Cardiff Central station but nevertheless, quiet? I'm coming in August for one night, to visit the Dr Who Experience, but I think the hotel would be more conveniently placed near the station, rather than near the Bay, as after visiting the exhibition it would be more useful to be in the city centre.
