Remember we are going to the UK mid year, via Singapore? We lost out a bit by not booking our flights in 2007. A few days ago I looked at the accommodation in Singapore where we thought we would stay and it had gone up. Why did no one ever say to me, the earlier you book, the better the price?
Right, better book stuffs now. Singapore accom booked, London accom booked, train to Newcastle booked. At some point, you just have to choose a place from the the huge number on offer. We will be near Paddington Station in London and on a direct line to Kings Cross Station where we will catch the train to Newcastle.
The train one is interesting. Just as an exercise, I also tried to book for tomorrow. The fare was around £50. By paying online in advance for June, the fare is £12. I wish I knew when and if we are going to Blackpool. I would do that in advance too, but then we might have a car and drive there.
A tour in Singapore we have decided to arrange at the hotel tour desk once we are there.
Next step is a tour or two when we are in London. It is not so much about money here, but the time factor. It takes time to do these things and we will only be in London for a few days.
I suppose using a travel agent takes time. You have to visit them etc. But boy this online holiday booking can take over your life. Even booking one locally like Jo has taken her a lot of time.
