    Default Thai Embassy London visit coming up...

    Hi guys

    I have booked my wife an appointment to renew her passport in person at the embassy. It said on the website that I should receive a verification email, but that never arrived. I do have a booking reference number though.

    It seems very difficult to get through to the embassy on the phone, so what I'd like to ask from you guys is do you think it will be fine to travel up to London for the appointment, or do I actually need the verification email that never was..?

    Thanks in advance

    Matt

    Did you check the spam folder?

    As long as the appointment has actually been made then you should be OK. A chap was turned away recently because he had no appointment.
    Now whether you MUST have the verification e-mail with you I'm not sure but as long as the appointment is valid and you have the reference number fingers crossed it should be OK (but we all know about Thais )

    Hi Gary

    Yes I checked the spam folder but there is nothing anywhere sadly... Well we arent flying anywhere until April so if we get turned away we will just have to book again, there is plenty of time. Not that I particularly enjoy visiting London...

    It has now moved to the basement next door. Don't forget to get a ticket when you arrive. Should be an easy journey. Ours was.

    Me and my wife attended April just gone ,around 30 mins we was in the embassy ,the tube station is not far away Gloucester road station so you could base your search around the underground it will give you more options rather then just the posh zone .

    Be very very careful watch out for the price of hotels. It is a very expensive area. When we applied for Jan's passport we met a couple of friends at the consulate and decided to go out for Thai food in a hotel in the main road . The meal came to £150 which thank G they wouldn't let me pay. I had gone white. Looked at the cost of staying there, £400 per night . Could fly to Thailand for that much.
    Look to stay out of the centre perhaps near the district line much cheaper. As has been said above Hotels .com

    Can't go wrong with a Travelodge, the ones around Kings Cross are cheap enough and only a few stops on the Piccadilly Line from the Embassy, there are cheaper options out around Finsbury Park which is still on the Piccadilly Line

    I live just outside of London and near to Heathrow Airport.
    The cheapest Travel Lodges near me are Heathrow, Sunbury and Feltham.
    If you stayed in the Feltham one you could get a train to Richmond and then District alone to South Kensington.
    I don’t know where you’re travelling from but I would definitely would not stay anywhere in central London as
    prices are extortionate.
    I’m currently working in the West End so have a decent knowledge of the areas near to
    the Embassy.

    I’ve emailed the Thai embassy several times in the past and they never reply. Same with Thai Airways and a few other places over here.
    I kind of feel that it’s a Thai thing to not deliver good customer service.

    Anywhere in London or near Heathrow Airport is extortionate. One of my sisters has a B&B close to the airport for around £70 per night and I haven’t heard of anything cheaper.

    There are plenty of hotels in easy travelling time of the embassy ranging from 60-160 pounds per night advertised on booking.com its no more expensive than Manchester Sheffield Leeds Edinburgh etc

    Ibis London Heathrow is often available for as little as £36 per room.

    Oh Tobias, I thought you had a bit more class than that.

    I like to stay here when in town, it's far better that getting the tube home after a nice evening. Gerald on the front desk is just a darling.

    If you're offended by any assistance I give, it says far more about you than it does me.

    The family suite has a special deal for half-term, you get a children's room for free when you book the suite, but you'll have to book quickly to get it for the bargain offer of £3300...…….


    Most of the Travelodge's in zone 4 on the Underground are bookable for about £70 a night in advance

    When I overnight at Heathrow I stay at the Sofitel T5, part of the Accor Hotel Group which also has the Ibis brand within its portfolio - I offered the Ibis as it is by all accounts a pleasant, affordable hotel with very convenient transport options.

    Great advice by everyone
    P.S do not forget your cash for the passport and return service (cash only)
