Accommodation and travel costs maybe high

The exchange rate for 1 pound sterling is around IDR 17,700, and the average expenditure reaches IDR 600 thousand per day, and that doesn’t include accommodation, activities and plane tickets. Therefore, it takes a lot of preparation before you go on vacation to London, and it would be better if you prepare your vacation in advance – and of course save more too!

Choose the best time

Many Indonesian tourists want to have a vacation in London when the air is cool, and avoid hot weather like in Indonesia. The good news: London is cool all year round, with summers only dropping to 25°C during the day.

Search for Hotels in London

When looking for places to stay in London, we strongly recommend choosing accommodation that is a bit outside the city. Because, the closer you are to the city center, the higher your accommodation costs. But, with London’s very complete transportation system, it usually only takes you 20 to 30 minutes from outside the city to central London.

Budget-friendly location close to the city center

Staying in luxury areas in London such as Kensington, Chelsea, Notting Hill, Knightsbridge and Brompton will definitely make your budget very high. Instead, you can choose locations such as Shoreditch, Paddington, King’s Cross, and Camden Town – all within 20 to 30 minutes from the city center by train!


With hostels already aplenty in Europe – including London – it’s easy to find a great hostel at a great price! If you really want to save money, there are choices of dorm-type rooms that you can order for around IDR 300,000 to IDR 600,000 for one night! Besides the affordable price, you can meet other travelers from all over the world in this room that contains 4 or more beds. However, if you want a room to yourself, most hostels have private room options too, for a higher price, of course.


Another option for getting a room or apartment in London is with Airbnb. You can choose your place to stay according to the location and price you want – you can adjust everything to your needs and the method is easy.
If you are lucky, you can also get an apartment for under IDR 200,000! Apartments with overnight rates like that are usually a bit far from the city center, but if you come with a large group, it might be more worth it.
