Travel Agents in 2016?

Can anyone recommend a good online travel agent for vacation planning? Yes I have fingers and an internet connection and have self-booked many flights and hotels in my lifetime. But plotting itineraries, finding cool places to stay, navigating transportation schedules and local attractions, etc requires time and energy I do not have. [more inside]

Lakes District or Inner Hebrides?

Ms. Window and I are heading to Scotland and The North in mid-October. We have a chance to spend two days in the Lakes District or two days on Mull and Iona, islands of the Inner Hebrides.

What should I ask my mom to get me in Scotland?

My mom is flying to Scotland today for a long business trip. She texted me asking if there is anything I wanted from there. She used to always get me tea on these trips, but I'm cutting it out of my diet. What should I ask for that's not too expensive? Something I can't get in the U.S. Midwest.

I'm booking business travel for someone who needs a hotel at Heathrow that is very, very easy to reach from Terminal 2. I've been there before and know it's a huge area with many hotels that can be reached via a variety of buses.

London with the boy (nearly six!)

So I'm about to take my son to London on a father and son trip. We've been once before and loved it. We went on the river bus, to the Natural History Museum (scary animatronic T-rex!), Science Museum and to Grenwich to see the Cutty Sark. We saw the changing of the guard. We had a WHALE of a time.

Help and advice for emergency international trip

Emergency England travel advice. My sister is very sick and I need to get to England as soon as possible. I am in Nashville, TN USA. Where can I get the cheapest plane tickets? Do I need to clear cookies from my browser every time I search, or is there a site that is best? If I fly into Heathrow are there trains to Brighton? I will have my infant with me also. Any advice welcome.

Help us enjoy the Scottish Highlands!

We have 9-10 hours to spend in Scotland around Inverness (arriving in Invergordon). We are interested in seeing some beautiful Scottish highland scenery. We are interested in suggestions for routes to take to see the most dramatic scenery, and what would be some worthwhile local sights/castles/picturesque villages to see. We have heard about the road from Durness to Ullapool, but are not sure if there is time for that. We do not have a car but might be able to hire a driver. Thank you for any help!

2 week Toronto to east coast road trip suggestions

I've booked July 9th - 24th off for a family road trip to the maritimes. We're no sure how to start planning. We've never been on a long road trip to visit multiple cities, places before and are a little lost on how to plan this. We were thinking of taking this route: Toronto - Ottawa - Montreal - Quebec City - [something?] - Fredericton - Moncton - Charlottetown - Peggy's Cove - then back (through the US perhaps?) Is this too much? Any suggestions on where to stop or a better route? Will be travelling with my wife and two daughters (9 and 11).
