If you’re planning on visiting London anytime soon, then we have a whole host of travel tips lined up for you in this post. Getting the full experience in a city is always based on your knowledge, experience, and location. If you book your stay in a central accommodation such as the Accommodation Paddington London – that comes with amenities such as Wi-Fi, comfortable bedding, an in-house restaurant – then the location aspect of your trip would be optimized.
Your knowledge and experience are both mutually dependent, but many people visiting London haven’t visited enough times to get a full understanding on how to best navigate the city so that they have the most enjoyment while saving on expenses. In this post, we’ll be sharing tips on how you can make your stay in London not only a memorable one, but also an affordable one.
First of all, long before you embark on your trip, consider applying for a credit card with no travel exchange fees. Meaning, your transactions in high street stores and such won’t be charged extra transaction fees. Plus you won’t have to deal with the whole ordeal of exchanging money before and during your trip, worrying about whether you’re getting a fair exchange rate.
Of course, it might be helpful to carry some cash just in case, so perhaps exchange a small amount of money before you leave, even if the rate is not as great as it would be in London. You don’t want to be scouring for currency exchange stores once you’re in London – simply because once you arrive – you don’t want to be taking care of the logistics of your trip! Rather, you want to exploring and discovering the culture, and history behind this city, and having fun. Anything else besides that is just a distraction.
Other than that, we also highly recommend you purchase a London pass. Doing so allows you to visit the best attractions in the city, without having to worry about how much each one will cost. Rather, you pay a one fee (and make huge savings – if you go to at least three attractions per day) and get access to all the best attractions in the city.
In conclusion, by purchasing a London pass, having a credit card with no foreign transaction fees, and using your card as often as you can – as opposed to using cash, you’ll make your trip stress-free, much more affordable. Book your accommodation in central London to also save costs on transport and you’ll end up walking more often. In the end, with the right strategies, you can have a brilliant time in London without having to worry about expenses.
