I am planning to spend a week in UK around Christmas time. Of course my air travel will have been paid. I will not rent a car since I don't have a UK driver's license. But of course will need lodging, meals and taxi or railway funds and spending money. I will have an American credit card also. I am trying to get a ball park figure so I can save for the trip. I am a student in the US so inexpensive lodging is desired. I will be in the Manchester area.
