Getting married at the end of September and looking at heading to Belfast for a 3 nights a few days after the wedding.

The best flights go into the international airport and we're gonna stay in the titanic quarter.

Looking online it looks like there are buses we can get from the airport to the city centre and back is it possible to get an open ticket to be used on and off over the course of our stay?

We are looking for looking at a few of the Game Of Throne tours has anyone got any recommendations? The main thing that needs to part of the tour is seeing the Giant Courseways.


I'm currently working out in Belfast Int airport. Are you open to hiring a car? The transport links in NI don't seem that good, especially if you want to drive up the coast to do Giants Causeway, you could do the game of thrones stuff and then hit giants causeway on the same day if you're in your own vehicle. (Unless of course you've found a guided tour that does both?) The international airport is also about 30 mins from the city. The locals keep telling me that you can park about 10 mins away from giants causeway and don't have to pay by the way. Rather than parking in the visitors center.

What date do you land? If you didn't want to hire a car and If I'm not working that day and I'm still in Ireland I could give you a lift into the city.


Sorry I thought I had replied we've arranged transport but thank you so much for offering we should arrived later tonight :)

Ahh I'm back home now anyway. Hope the wedding went OK.

They do do GoT bus tours by the way. Not sure if they're any good, mind you.

RE. Giant's causeway. You don't need to pay, if you go into the visitor centre you can 'pay' to walk down. Me and my friends however just walked over the top of it (you'll see it's built into a hill) and then along the cliffs. Some great views up there, then you can walk down to the causeway.
Obviously I don't know if we were being criminals or not...but no-one seemed to mind.

Can anyone recommend an app on android where I can manually add a holiday itinerary?

Just booked a Caribbean cruise for next April and have a few flights to catch along with then picking excursions at various islands so it would be nice to be able to plan it ahead of time.

Anyone here done the Morocco Sahara tour? We've booked our flights for November, and just trying to think of how to fill the days. 10 days in total starting in Fes and leaving from Marrakesh.

Not sure I want to do anything on a Camel, but if it's the only option I guess I'll have to.

So...anyone ever been to Delhi?

More importantly the airport. I've got a long turnover there and I'm a teeny bit concerned that I may need an Indian Visa. I don't plan on leaving the airport, but I'm still concerned as to what procedures I need to go through. I've not really travelled much outside of the EU and I've never ever done an airport transfer before, so I don't know what the rule of thumb is

I haven't been to Delhi. I haven't even been to India.

But if you're transit you're almost certainly not going to need a visa. You aren't going to even go through immigration, surely.

If you're going to leave the airport between your flights, then yeah, you'll need a transit visa or whatever allows you to clear immigration and customs.

If you're merely moving from the plane to your departure gate, my travel experience dictates that you won't need anything but your passport and boarding pass. You'll need to go security probably though, so be careful with liquids in your hand luggage.

You might want to get in touch with the Indian embassy, they'd definitely know whether or not a visa was needed (and be able to issue one should it be required).

So I'm thinking of adding a few days in Seoul to my big Asia trip. I'm a bit torn; on the one hand Korea has never really been on my radar, on the other there are a few things I'd like to see there and this is likely to be my last holiday for a few years. I'm also a bit worried that since Hong Kong, Taipei and Tokyo are all on my itinerary that Seoul maybe a bit too similar. Any thoughts for or against?

Hi. I've had an issue when trying to check in with air india. Has anyone used these before? Or seen something similar. Tickets booked through a third party company. I'll attach the picture now.

But basically it wont let me check in online . I feel if I turn up in Heathrow tomorrow itll all be fine, but the message does concern me.

Any advice?

Edit: I dont know how to upload screenshots from my phone.....basically it says.

'Currently there are no free seats kindly use a saleable preferred seat with the assistance of our contact centre or airport customer service'


The last bit of the message makes me feel like I Should be ok tomorrow ? I tried phoning and the call line is useless :(

I quite fancy going whale watching, Iceland seems like the best bet, to combine closeness and whale watching experience. Anyone got anything better, or can recommend any tour companies?
