Find United Kingdom-related Products and Services. Connect and Interact with those who share your interest in the United Kingdom.
Below you'll find Merchants and Products which speak to the topic of this site and which, in keeping with our mission as The Web's Concierge, have been carefully chosen and individually screened for your shopping ease and pleasure. They are not paid ads, but rather companies with whom we have selectively chosen to partner. We do earn a referral fee if you find something you like or need and purchase it. We have striven to bring you the "best in breed" companies ... those that: we like, our friends like, have great sites and service, have good online reviews, positive consumer reports, and are family friendly. Keep us posted with regards to your own personal experiences with them.
You may be surprised at companies that have not been included. The "noisiest" in the marketplace are not always the best. We have chosen 1) newer innovative companies that are performing well and garnering respect in their respective niches as well as 2) "Main Street" companies that have been reliably getting the job done for decades ... in some cases centuries. Our oldest partner, thus far, has been in business since 1819! That's staying power.
Rest assured, if we've included a certain vendor in a site's line-up, there's a very specific reason for it. You may have to hunt and poke a bit, but it'll be well worth the effort. Enjoy the adventure!
The Leader of the Pack
One Travel: Offering air, hotel, car, cruise, and travel package deal booking ... considered one of "the top 10" best online travel sites (ranking pretty high on that list ... ahead of others you might hear more about) ... they do have an easy to use site which has lots of info on it which you should read (esp the FAQs) ... also providing good customer support.

Carrot-Top: This is THE place to come if you need a patriotic flag (from the US or just about any other world country) or novelty banner ... pre-printed or custom (and the range of stuff they customize is amazing ... right down to the tablecloths for that special event!). So, if you're needing an American "Stars & Stripes" (and the flagpole to go with it), a military grave marker (hard to find), or a US state, city, or territory flag ... you will find it here. And so much more (the "more" including military, civil service, religious, nautical, auto racing, golf flags; retail and advertising banners, etc, etc) And they've been doing it for 30 years.

Intrepid specializes in "soft" adventure" travel (which might be a relative term for some folks) and small groups (as few as four and usually not more than 12). It is no frills ... local food, local transport, and modest accommodations ... grassroots travel I guess one would call it. Just without all the pre-planning hassles. They've been doing it since 1989 and have 800 different tour variations. Some folks love 'em (including some of the National Geo folks), some not so much. You just need to know what you're looking for out of your travel experience.
