One thing is not frugal in the UK

Now that I have your attention...do not even think about using your frequent flier miles to visit London.

Why, you ask?

Because you the frequent flier are responsible for Paying the taxes if you land at Heathrow or Gatwick...

We have learned that if you go to Europe land in France and take the Chunnel...

You are paying for the constant upgrading of the British airports.

For Example the number of miles required to fly to Charles De Gaulle or Heathrow is the same.

The taxes are another story...recently the tax to land at Heathrow was $230 if you use frequent flier miles $10 for Paris...the difference will pay for a lot of rides by bullet train from Paris to London...and it is fun and time saving...city center to city center.
