What to know before you fly to United Kingdom?

There’s no denying that the UK is jam-packed with things to do all year round, but the seasons do have an impact on what’s available – and what’s fun. Cosying up in a whisky bar in Scotland during winter might be wonderful, but in summertime you’ll have several extra hours of daylight at your disposal, which is always good if you’re on holiday! Generally the best time to fly to the UK is from May to September, when the weather is warmer (and the days are longer). Spring and autumn are both usually warm and dry, while July and August are the busiest months.

The best airlines to fly to the UK are the major airlines, which will have more flights and therefore offer more flexibility. If you want a direct flight to the United Kingdom from Australia, you’ll have to jump on the Qantas Dreamliner, which departs from Perth and gets you to London in around 17 hours, non-stop.
