United Kingdom

What should I know about the United Kingdom before visiting?

There are many questions that a traveler might want to ask before visiting a new country. Below, we gathered some information we hope you will find useful! If you have more questions that are not answered here, check out the FAQ on the bottom of this page or contact us directly. You can email us, phone-call us, or click on the chat pop-up you should see on the screen right now to talk with us directly! We are happy to answer anything and offer you recommendations.

How can I go to the United Kingdom?

Since the United Kingdom is located on an island, you will almost certainly arrive by plane! The United Kingdom boasts a vast and grand network of flight and air connections. You can get there on a plane from pretty much anywhere on Earth. Once you arrive at the airport, all you need is to get into your airport transfer and go to your hotel. We recommend booking it in advance to minimize stress! 

During the Coronavirus pandemic, you should take extra caution before coming to the UK. You have to book 2 COVID tests in advance to take them in the UK. You will also have to provide a result showing that you were COVID-negative before starting to travel.

Do I have to quarantine after traveling to the United Kingdom?

After you arrive in the UK, you will have to take a COVID test and quarantine yourself for 10 days. If you traveled through a “red list” country, you will have to quarantine in a special hotel. If you did not, you will be able to quarantine at whatever place you are staying instead. So make sure to plan accordingly! You can take a private “test to release” test that is a basis to end the quarantine faster.

What is the minimum time I have to quarantine myself after arriving in the United Kingdom?

The minimum time you have to self-isolate in the UK is 5 days if your “test to release” results are negative. Otherwise, you have to quarantine for at least 10 days.

What makes MrShuttle a good choice when visiting the United Kingdom?

  • Door to Door Service: We believe that Door to Door services should be a world standard in the industry. What does it mean in practice? We take care of you from the beginning to the end of your trip or transfer. You pick a place where we pick you up, and a place where we drop you off. As long as it is within city limits, anything is fair game. Sometimes the best way to reach your destination will be via city transport. Do not worry – even then, our guides will accompany you from beginning to end.
  • Professional guides: To make sure you don’t miss anything cool, we focus on providing you with the guidance of the very best guides available. They can and will answer any questions you can come up with and will explain all necessary context to fully enjoy the tours. It is fun to be curious, so ask away!
  • Full Cost Transparency: We believe in full cost-transparency. Hidden costs and unfair pricing is a plague of the industry. Many tourists fall prey to predatory tactics relying on obfuscation and misinformation. MrShuttle says “no” to all of that. Our prices are clear and fixed. Since the price of transports within the city limit is not based on distance or time traveled, you will not be surprised by hidden extra charges when you arrive at your destination. Whenever there are optional costs, we will inform you what are pros and cons of paying them. We want to give you an informed choice.

I highly recommend this company. The car for 6 people was waiting for us even before the scheduled time. The drivers were super nice and the car ( minibus) clean and comfortable. Good price too and you can pay in cash or credit card if you order via website.
