comment What are the advantages of booking through a booking site instead of booking directly with the hotel?
(3) is actually not true. All the booking sites I know of just pass the credit card details directly to the hotel and don't care about the customer.

comment Preventing theft in Western Europe
Seriously, crime is not that common in Western Europe. Follow the common sense precautions listed in the answers below, but don't worry about it too much.

comment Is it possible to pay for a British Airways flight that originates in Ireland in sterling?
Recently BA seems to make sure that the prices on their website are either the best or close to the best comparing to other websites. @feklee, usually the cost of phone call is not the biggest issue, they (e.g. Opodo) will charge you extra for every change of the tickets, on top of the airline charges.

comment Beach huts closest to London
I didn't realize you can just rent these huts! Thanks for letting me know. On this occasion I am looking for 'live-in' huts though (probably in warmer countries)...

comment What should I think of and prepare when flying with kids?
I am pretty sure they will be fine. 3h long flight is not a problem really. I agree with @Kate that you should try to educate them about flying, planes, etc. so they know what to expect.
