The places you have mentioned are in three of the 'home counties': Herts, Hants, and Surrey, and I have tooled around two of the venues (never been to the Harry Potter film sets). It's debatable whether it makes sense to rent a car to visit popular tourist venues in the home counties, but that's a topic relying heavily upon your experience in South East ...

You have nothing to worry about. The police in Canada react to calls in one of several ways: they just interact with you but do not write your name down in their notebooks and they make no record of the incident. Once, a police officer who came to my home for a noise complaint wrote my name on his hand (so he would have it if he needed it over the next few ...

While I understand your anxiety, in commonwealth Countries they will COMMUNICATE to you if you are not welcome anymore. Once I had to be the adult responsible for a kid in UK who stole from a shop. He had to apologize, was sent back to his home with the formal warning that the next time he wouldn't be welcome in all the commonwealth countries, should that ...

Because there are plenty of postal services you can use before you reach the airport. If you couldn't be bothered to pay attention to what you were putting in your luggage before you got to security, that's your own fault; I see no reason for an airport to expend the cost of making up for it.

There are services like that in Germany. I twice forgot to check in my Victorinox knife, and they found it during the hand luggage control step. So they just offered this service and it was sent back to me to Moscow by mail. It was in Berlin in two different airports. It worked like that: you pick an envelope from a stand nearby and put your thing there. ...

Even if they don't, it's a matter of being a bit quick and resourceful. If you have sufficient time it should not be a problem. Same thing happened to me at Schiphol with a rather expensive Leatherman Tool. Went back out, down to the newspaper stand and brought a boatload of postage stamps. They were even kind enough to give me a free envelope (otherwise I ...

Many US airports do in fact have a "mail back" kiosk near security, where you can drop off your pocket knife, attach a form with your address and some money (postage plus a hefty markup), and have it mailed back to you. Airport Mailers is one of the companies that operates these kiosks; they claim to have kiosks in these 22 airports (elsewhere on their site ...

Yes, it's safe - keeping your bags safe is their only job! I've heard of thefts from bags by baggage handlers at airports, by other travellers, even by hostel staff. I've never, anywhere in the world, heard of anybody having something stolen from a bag left in an accredited/official left luggage operation at an airport or train station. And as for why, ...
