You do not need your passport with you when you’re flying within the UK. There are printers in the check-in area of BelfastAirport, so there is no need to panic if you forget to print your boarding pass. If you have a smartphone you can store your boarding card electronically on your phone. Security can scan the e-barcode so you don’t need to worry about paper at all.
We recommend leaving plenty of time at the airport, so try not to arrive any later than one hour before your flight is due to depart. Queues at security are longer at weekends and during school holidays, so it’s worth giving yourself extra time.
What to expect in London
Being the UKs capital city, London is an expensive destination. However, its size means that it does offer a large choice of accommodation and dining options. Budget travellers will be able to find hostels and cheap eats with a little research. Lunch in the city centre for one person can cost anything upwards of £11* however supermarkets, fast food takeaways and small cafes away from the central tourist areas can provide it much cheaper. Money for transport must be taken into account as getting around London is almost impossible on foot. A local bicycle hire scheme is a cheaper alternative to the Tube with bikes costing just £2* per 24 hours. Those wanting to see shows and visit the major tourist sights must be willing to part with their hard earned cash, however there are wonderful free things to do from London’s stunning parks and gardens to many free museums and galleries. The weather in London can be warm in the summer but expect wind, rain and cold during the winter months.
