1 Pound Hotel Rooms in London


The Hoxton The Hoxton Urban Lodge is a boutique hotel in London, and they are offering a £1 Room Sale. That's a meagre 2 US dollars to stay in a boutique hotel in one of the most expensive cities in the world.

There are 500 rooms available for £1 and 500 at £29 between 1st August and 31st October 2008. The last time this sale was on over 500,000 people tried to book, so it resembles a lottery as much as a sale. Like the lottery you've got to be in it to win it, so if you are planning a trip to London it's worth having a go at getting a one pound room.

Other offers include:
- Rooms for £59 over the August Bank Holiday.
- All Sundays in September at £59.
- All Fridays and Saturdays in November at £79.
- Rooms from £30 in December.
- Rooms on Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and Boxing Day for £30.

You can find out about the next £1 sale by joing The Hoxton mailing list.

Fly from London to Australia with Low Cost Airlines


The New Kangaroo Route - London to Sydney with Low Cost Airlines

Low cost airlines have now covered just about every short haul route possible and are now looking at inter-continental long haul flights. It will soon be possible to fly from the UK to Australia one stop, just like the traditional scheduled airlines.

Of course you don't have to fly to Australia in one stop. There are so many low cost carriers along the way that it is possible to break to trip up into multi stops like you would on a round the world ticket.

Flying like this though won't necessarily mean that your flight will be cheaper. And because most low cost airlines aren't in the booking systems of travel agents or online booking engines you have to do all the flight segment research yourself. For someone like me though that is half the fun.

If you are trying to fly straight through it's advisable to leave enough time between connecting flights. If one flight is late and you miss the next you will not just be able to get on the next flight like on a scheduled service. If you are trying to go straight through then one or two stops would be the most managable. Anything over that and you are better off enjoying the city you have flown to.

Here is a list of some route options to fly from London to Australia I have put together using only low cost airlines. Some stop over cities arrive in one city and depart from another city close by (eg Sharjah - Dubai and Hong Kong - Macau). Overland options (eg fly into Mumbai, out of Chennai) aren't included as there are so many possibilities.

I have only covered the kangaroo Route for the list, but it is possible to fly around the world using low cost airlines. If you have you flown from the UK to Australia or around the world on low cost airlines, or have made up some other possible itineraries, leave a comment.
