Travel: United Kingdom - London

School terms keep kids in school and parents sane. Holidays can be boring to kids if they are left alone. Discuss vacation ideas and how to make good use of the free time for both children and adults.

Hi. I'm trying to do a "proposal" for my "CFO". Any budget or reasonably priced accommodation to recommend for 2A 1 teenager and 1 child? Preferably no Airb&b because I'm afraid the guys might dirty the toilet. Please recommend locations to stay in too. Thank you.

When in London, make sure to get an Oyster card. An Oyster Card will save you time and money when it comes to those pesky travel related costs that seem to gobble up our cash. Grab an Oyster Card (which is FREE, with a small refundable deposit) from a Tube Station and preload a given amount onto the card. When using an Oyster Card, your journey is not only discounted but you’ll also have a maximum daily capped amount that you can spend in one day. This means that after doing 3 or 4 journeys, the rest of the day’s travel will be totally free around the whole of London!

To add - getting the refund is quite quick and painless too. You can do it at a machine at a Tube station after your last journey, or you can keep the card for your next trip as the card does not have an expiry date. If you plan to use the Tube from Heathrow, make sure you get the card there to get the lower rate even on that first ride.
