I spent hours researching this topic as I will be flying into LHR T5. Sofitel at T5 currently charges GBP40 to use their spa facilities even just for a shower. Hilton at T4 which is connected by a covered walkway only charges GBP20 to use their shower facilities for non residents.

The answer depends on 4 things: How you are getting to the airport What airline you're flying with How frequent the flights on that route are How good your travel insurance is If you have great travel insurance, are on a route with one flight roughly ever hour, and are just hopping on the tube for 20 minutes to get there, then arriving just before you're ...

Check-in and luggage drop-off usually will be closed 45-90mins before departure, depends on airline policy. Time is enough to arrive the farthest gate before closed if everything is ok in custom and immigration check in busy hours.

It means you must hold a ticket out of the UK within the specified time. You can't present yourself to the immigration checkpoint and tell the officer you will buy a ticket before leaving and you can't use this facility to stay 2 or 3 days in the UK. If you choose widely, you could have more than 24 hours to do some sightseeing but basically, it's a ...

You do go through a security check at LHR, but it is pretty perfunctory (by British, attack-dog standards). If you are traveling to India on an Indian passport, they won't ask any questions.

The immigration checkpoint will be essentially unavoidable when you arrive at your final destination. You can't get anywhere interesting without passing through immigration first. You can't even get your checked luggage, as the baggage claim is between the immigration and customs checkpoints. You may want to avoid passport control in an airport where you ...

When checking in your luggage, ask the person in charge about your luggage; normally, they should be transferred automatically and you will pick them up in London. Also, if you are a minor, you should also tell the person doing the luggage checkin; they will help you get around and will help you towards your connecting flight in Dubai airport when you ...

No, there is no need to pass through immigration control in this circumstance. Simply follow the purple signs to the new terminal. The inter-terminal bus system is before immigration control.

Yes, airline staff in general will do a check that you have the necessary documentation to enter your destination country. This is because they are subject to costs if they fly a person who is not permitted to enter the country. So if you do not have the necessary documentation you will not be permitted to board the aircraft. On the other hand, just because ...

Star Alliance has lounges on the arrival level at Heathrow Terminal 2. I don't know the details of your lounge access, but I don't see any reason why you shouldn't be able to use them. Of course you will still need to transfer to T3 at a reasonable time.

I don't believe so, no, unless you have arrivals lounge access. When you get off your flight in Terminal 2, you'll be in the arrivals passenger flow. Unlike a domestic US arrival for example, you don't just get dumped out into the terminal, but into a secure area. You'll then follow the Purple Flight Connections signs, which for most of the way will be the ...
