Hello, we are going to London for 3 weeks. We want to go to Paris and Ireland and Scotland as well as Amsterdam. Can anyone help us with the best ways to get around at the best prices for air. As well as a good place to stay in central London that is not to spendy? And a good place to stay in Paris. We have accomadations in Ireland and Scotland already. Do we need to pre book our flights between London, Scotland etc or can we just show up and get a ticket???? Help. Thank You sooo much. kay
Maybe this link can help you find you cheap flights.
Just select the country and place you want to go from and then you see all your options.
Hope it helps.
If your base is in London check out Ryanair and Easyjet. They cover all the destinations you listed. But be aware that the airports they use are often quite far from the city centre.
Often the fare is cheaper the more in advance you book.
For Paris use the Eurostar. Although it looks more expensive than the cheap airfares it will save you money for transport to/from the airports and you will depart and arrive from a very central train station.
As for accommodation try www.hostelworld.com
Thanks so much for the info. This is a great site. I think that I will learn alot on here. Im sure I will be back with more questions. Thanks so much, Kay
YOu can fly from London to Dublin or Shannon with Ryanair for as little as £1 if you book early, and fly either early morning or late in the evening. Same is true for flying to Paris or Amsterdam from London. If you book the flights in advance you can fly for next to nothing.
You could take the train to Scotland if you wanted a change from flying. Its a good way to see the countryside if you have the time. Maybe stop off half way in Manchester or somewhere like the Lake District on the way?
What's your budget for accomodation?
