When is the ideal time to plan your next trip to London to avoid disappointment? We have phone calls every day asking how far ahead a vacation apartment reservation should be made to ensure they will be able to stay with London Connection. It depends on:

  • How many guests
  • Length of stay
  • Time of year you plan to visit
  • Flexibility vs. fixed dates

2-22 Great Queen Street, Covent Garden

How many guests?

Of course, the number of people that will be traveling with you and staying overnight is an important factor. There are options for individual flats in the same building, or up to 4 bedrooms in the same accommodation.

# of Guests 1-2 3-4 5+
Book in advance 1-4 months 3-6 months 6-9 months

How long will you be in London?

How flexible are you?

If you have already booked your flights and have specific dates, it may limit which properties are available. Our suggestion is that you have an idea of your flights and ideal dates, then check our website for available properties. It may be exactly the same, or you might need to shift your flights a few days.

Sometimes, people don’t understand the importance of planning ahead. We received a request the first week of December for someone that wanted a particular property for the first week of May. It was too late — that property was already booked. Another call came in July for a three week stay in August. We were sorry to have to turn anyone away!

Can last minute reservations be accommodated?

It depends on the time of year and the size of the group, but sometimes they can. Always, always — call and ask!

2-47 Grosvenor Street, Mayfair

Our goal is to meet your needs and have the perfect property for you and those traveling with you. There might be options not showing on the website. Don’t hesitate to call our office at (801) 393-9120 if you need help choosing the best accommodation for you. We know them well, and can hopefully answer any questions. STAY CALM AND STAY WITH LONDON CONNECTION
