Ok so i know courier service has its ups and downs. I wanna know if its totally worth it? Cause if so im willing to do it and ive never done it b4. I want a courier flight to london how much would u think that would cost approximatly leaving outa O'hare? Are the courier flights more freqent to london? Thats what ive heard because i wanna see if its available when i turn 18 which is on august 3rd meaning im gonna sign up that day. I wanna shoot for leaving to london on august 28th, but is that even remotely possible? It depends on the courier service company right? I just wanna know if london is usually available for courier service often no matter what the company.

ive looked into this before and i dont think its really worth it first you have to sign up which costs money. then pay a small amount for your flight. but you have to give away your baggage space so you cant really carry anything besides a carry on bag. and the length of the stay is only for a few days

just buy a ticket its not that expensive from anywhere on the east coast.

hmmmm, but im not looking forward to a long stay. I just want a cheap flight cause i need to save money. As of now all i have is like 600 dollars. That definatly wont buy me a trip there. Lodging will be free cause im going to cardiff to stay with someone i know there temporarily. I dont really need luggage space cause i dont plan on bringing anything back nor staying long.

I can fly to London from Phoenix for $299 depending on the time of the year. Use British Airways site. Of course I am talking a few months out not next week or anything. Currently British Airways has a deal where you get 2 nights in a hotel for free.

I ran a query for you in it. I chose leaving Aug. 3rd and returning Aug. 28th. Going to London Heathrow is $455 and returning is $425 the total was 993$ with taxes. You should have booked earlier than a month in advance to get a good price, plus August is one of the busiest months of the year for travel to London. You should also know that 600$ is not enough. London is very expesive, but I loved being there!! If you think you can get by on just a carry on for 3.5 weeks go for it. The courier thing isn't as easy as it looks in EuroTrip (the movie). If you can get a super cheap flight, thats cool. Just realize when you get there your money is worth almost half. 600$=324.4 pounds. Buy a cd there (for example) is still 13 pounds. which is like 24$. Good luck!!! You will love it there though!!
