Traveling to London is always a good idea. It doesn’t matter if this is your first or 20th time in London, a trip to the Old Smoke is always exciting, and a few tips for the trip can always come in handy. You never know what you are missing out of your checklist.
To help you with that, we have made a list of the top things you must have in your mind before you hop on that plane to London.
Check the weather in London and pack accordingly. If you have gotten it right one time, it does not mean you always will. The weather in London is quite unpredictable, yet you should still check it before your trip. Pack your bags according to the weather, but always take at least one pair of warmer clothes. You never know.
Pack a foldable umbrella. In London, the mornings can be all sunrays and butterflies, while rain showers can chase people away from the streets a few hours late. It could also be the other way around. Make sure you always have a foldable umbrella, so you won’t get wet like a chicken, or have to carry a big umbrella around when it is not raining.
Get your travel insurance. It is mandatory to have the right travel insurance when you travel to London. You may feel that nothing is going to happen to you, but that you can never know. It is always better to be prepared. You can get a UK travel insurance, or Schengen travel insurance that covers the non-Schengen EU countries. The second may be better for you.
Book flights into smaller airports. You may be able to get cheaper tickets this way, and save yourself a lot of time and energy by avoiding long lines and crowds.
