Welcome to the UK, described by Lonely Planet in the latest UK guide as "simply one of the most beautiful islands on earth". You'll find that whilst people can appear flippant and/or sarcastic on this branch, it's only part of the unique British sense of humour so don't take it personally.

I have been reading up on the multi currency cash passport and thought it sounded like the ideal option as there are no transaction fees/currency conversion fees or ATM fees - i have read through their terms and conditions so i am aware the actual ATM's can charge fees if they want to. My bank as well as most banks charge a 3% conversion fee on any transaction made overseas so i wanted to avoid this. Currently i have 2000 Euros and 1000 pounds cash. I need to get another 1000 pounds and i…
Our family of four (children are 2.5 and 5) are going to be staying in Moveen West for several days in late July. I was wondering if you have any advice for what we should do when we are there. We will have a car but since the kids are so young, we can't be too ambitious in our day trips. We are interested in everything the area has to offer. The kids really want to see castles. I read about a dolphin cruise in a nearby town. Obviously the Cliffs of Moher are a must. I recently read about…
My family is spending a few days in Dublin before renting a car and driving to Moveen West, County Clare. I have some questions about car rental and car rental companies.
1. Is it best to:
a. rent the car in Dublin (I read that driving in Dublin is terrifying especially for people unaccustomed to driving on different sides of the road)
b. rent the car at the Dublin airport
c. take a train to Shannon (or somewhere close to Moveen) and then rent a car
2. Is there a car rental company…
I'm planning on driving around Scotland in September and would like to remain flexible so would not prefer to set up firm reservations schedule beforehand. Is there a resource to make reservations in budget type hotels as I go or at least a good list anywhere? I've heard that it's not too booked up then. I would prefer budget hotels and spend on food (and of course gas) instead. Any general advice about this?
Sorry if this has been asked a million time, I searched but didn't find anything useful.
I will be in Dublin from Saturday to the following Friday. Monday to Friday for work, the weekend I have to pay my own way. It seems like the Leap Visitor Card would be the cheapest option, but to be refunded by my employer I have to have a receipt. If I buy the Visitor Card at the Tourist Information (Visit Ireland, I think it was called) at the airport then I assume I will get some sort of…
I have a Type C (Single Entry) Schengen Visa and will be visiting Germany in September. As far as the info gathered by me i can travel to all Schengen countries with this visa but i would like to visit London as well. I know i have to get another visa which i will but my question is would i be allowed to come back to Germany ? As my return flight is from Germany. Pls advice if it would be possible with a Type C (Single Entry) Visa? If not what is the alternative
