UK help with April 2012 itinerary, rentals,bookings

Jump to last reply

Travelers, I really need your expert help. We (2 active divorced women in our 60's) are planning a 3 week car trip through Scotland and England. I have a few questions and hope you will advise us!
Arriving in Edinburgh from the US on April 26, departing London on May 17.
What do you think of this itinerary and the lodgings???? One of us was in the UK years ago, drove a car throughout the UK, and has been to most of these towns/cities before, but not the lodgings)
2 nights Edinburgh (maybe Geraldsplace B&B?)
1 night St. Andrews. (Brooksby house B&B??) (we like golf)
1 night Housestead for Hadrian's Wall (Beggar Bog B&B??)
3 nights York (St Raphael Guest House or Crook lodge???)
3 nights Cotswolds (Lygon Arms B&B or Tythe Barn cottage???)
1 night Bath (Threee Abbey Greeen or The Crescent Inn???)
2 nights Salisbury (Legacy Rose & Crown???-I stayed here years ago and loved it)
2 nights Canterbury via Rye and Brighton (Canterbury Cathedral Lodge or?????)
5 nights with friends in London area.
My other questions are:
**car rental---europcar company ok?? Vauxhall automatic car? what about getting the extra insurance?? cost of gasoline??
**is it safe to book all these lodgings online via credit card? what other way do you suggest? This is a real concern!
**where should we get a GPS--bring it from the US or rent one with our car??
**cell phone--rent one? where? Mine won't work in the UK
ANY OTHER SUGGESTIONS!! Thanks ever so much!
