going LAX to Heathrow. then somehow get to Brittany, France at the end of it all. got LAX to london taken care of, but it's the next one i have problems with. with ryan air, it doesn't look like a great deal going to Dinard (Brittany) (75.99 GPB is what it says). call me out of the loop, but what's GPB? anyway. i want to know if i should go with it. what else is there? i don't like eurostar prices.

plus, i have a friend in london who will be back home by the end of my trip, but she's not sure. so i wanted to know if there were anymore flexible dates that don't need to book it RIGHT NOW. oh, i leave at the beginning of june and go home end of june. ugh. any ferries that would stuff me in cargo? what to do? i feel pressed for time to book something.

i'm not sure about the other stuff, but its probably GBP not GPB. It stands for Great Britain Pound I think.

check out national express coach service, they go to lots of european destinations from the UK for pretty cheap. And fedfe is right, GBP is Great Britain Pound; the current rate from US dollars to GBP is about $2 to £1. Heinous but true. Good luck!!
