Posted on: September 30, 2008 at 8:13PMFYI: For all you who love London as much as I do and frequent it often....On your next visit to London, purchase an Oyster card for use on the tube. The great thing is, you can recharge them over the internet and save you from long, lengthy lines on your arrival. Simply charge before you go, putting in the day of your arrival and the nearest tube stop to your hotel. Once you pass through the gate with your card, it becomes activated.... report a problem
Posted on: October 07, 2008 at 2:54PMCarry any medicines in your carry on bag so they can't get lost with the luggage. Don't keep valuables in your luggage either to get pawned over by airport personnel. Use approved safety locks on luggage. Keep plastic bottles over 3 oz. OUT of your carry-ons and in your suitcases or they will be confiscated. This applies to any country now, thanks to terrorists. We have to be vigilant.

Posted on: September 30, 2008 at 8:53PMEven if you don't go to London often, its still a great deal. Even if you only ride the Tube once or twice a day over the course of a few days it ends up being cheaper.
