You don’t need to bring your passport with you when you’re flying within the UK. Some form of official photographic ID is required, so bring your driving license instead.
There are printers in the check-in area of London’s Airports, so there’s no need to panic if you forget to print your boarding pass. If you have a smartphone you store your boarding card electronically on your phone, security can scan the e-barcode, and you don’t need to worry about paper at all.
We recommend giving yourself 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 some extra time.
What to expect in London
London is the most expensive city in the UK, however, thanks to its size it does offer a host of options for budget travellers. There are plenty of hostels and cheap eats to be found with a little research. Lunch in the centre for one person can cost anything upwards of £11* however supermarkets and small cafes away from the central district can be found much cheaper. Money for transport must be taken into account as getting around London is almost impossible on foot. The local bicycle hire scheme is a cheaper alternative to the Tube with bikes costing just £2* per 24 hours. The capital is a buzzing, exciting city with a never ending amount of culture, entertainment, sights and experiences on offer and a must see for travellers on all budgets.
