comment Do I need to show proof I will be leaving UK when I enter (as an EU citizen)?
@JesseBaljon they might ask you those questions, if they stopped you. But immigration is the normal place where your passport is checked and questions about your visit are asked. It does vary country to country, but in most, they are separate steps.

To be clear, you mean "immigration", not customs. They are often confused, but are not the same thing.

comment How to change some details on the passport application AFTER it got submitted?
Totally off-topic, but you just caused me to check on your usage of "revert": english.stackexchange.com/a/10148/13944.

comment Are there still any advantages to using an Oyster card for travel in London?
Indeed. If you don't live near a national rail station, or don't use it on a daily commute, having a railcard doesn't make much sense.

When you say 'railcard', do you mean railcard (National Rail) or travelcard (TfL)? Note that plenty of Londoners (although probably not the majority) don't have either (myself included).

Some people do care about those extra cards. Railcards apply to a lot of people, but not everyone (for example, those commute by tube/DLR/bus/etc., or live in London but aren't regular commuters). It may not be better for you, but there are plenty of people who do benefit from it :)

Important and non-obvious subtlety on the mid-week thing, good point!

@JonathanReez that's not been my experience. Most credit card providers (I don't know about debit cards), at least in the UK, will give far better rates than cash, since they are using the standard interbank rate. The standard answer (travel.stackexchange.com/a/151/2555) seems to agree. That all assumes there aren't fees on top, though, as JoErNanO highlights.
