Air Travel Ticket Information

For long distance travel in Britain, air travel is worth considering.

Travel agents can give more information. British Airways offer a 'Europe Airpass', but only to BA travellers from certain countries outside Europe.
British Midland offer a 'Discover Europe Pass' giving unlimited flights. It is only available to residents outside Europe (except Iceland and Greece).

You may find cheap 'standby' tickets available for certain flights.

Do not take a taxi unless you are sure how much it will cost.
To take a taxi from London airports will be expensive, unless you are a large group!
London Heathrow to central London would be about £35!

Go by train or bus if possible!

London Heathrow has frequent electric underground trains to the centre of London, as well as buses.

London Gatwick has Gatwick Express and other trains directly to London or the South Coast.

'Thameslink' trains from the south coast also stop at Gatwick, and go non-stop across London to Luton and Bedford.

This saves changing trains in London, if you are travelling to parts of the North of England.

Cheap flights

Britain (and London in particular) is known as one of the best places to buy cheap air tickets, and they can be much cheaper than buying them in your own country. But there are difficulties! It may not be so easy to use a credit card across frontiers to buy a cheap ticket. And some agents may not be prepared to give the cheapest tickets to overseas buyers.

If you have friends or contacts in Britain, it may be possible for them to help you, and buy tickets for you.

You must however be very careful when buying air tickets. With cheap tickets, you may not be able to change dates or times later, or receive a refund if you cannot travel for any reason. And not all ticket agents are reliable. An agent might go out of business, or cheat you! Dealing with an agent in a different country adds to the difficulties. Of course, you may find that tickets are cheaper from an agent in your country anyway. Payment by credit card may give you protection against non-delivery of tickets for any reason - check with your credit card company.

There is however a good honest travel agent in Britain that we recommend. He may be able to help you to obtain cheap air flights to Britain.

Cheap flights

The Cheap flights website also lists cheap flight options from Britain, and agents. We give it so that you can have a picture of some of the cheapest prices available. We do not know any of the agents listed, and so cannot give any recommendation. Many cheap flights are also advertised in British daily newspapers, particularly the Saturday issues of THE TIMES and THE DAILY TELEGRAPH.
