You know what it's like being a tourist in a new city. You've just arrived, you don't quite know what's going on and you're standing there like a sitting duck

The EPok London Pack is an information and discount pack produced by London based firm EPok.com. The Pack gives London tourists 2 for 1 offers at restaurants, money off vouchers, half price drinks at bars and many other things to make a tourists life in London cheaper and easier.
"London's one of the best cities in the world. But if you're a tourist you could be being ripped off and saying thank you for it," according to Co-founder of EPok.com, Ron Rodney.
"You know what it's like being a tourist in a new city. You've just arrived, you don't quite know what's going on and you're standing there like a sitting duck," said Mr Rodney.
"Having the EPok London Pack will make you more like a Londoner and less like a tourist," he said.
So here are 3 ways that tourists get ripped off in London without even knowing it and the solutions.
Go to any major location where tourists are and there will be queues of tourists waiting patiently at a kiosk to be ripped off. Where are they waiting? At Currency Exchange booths. It's impossible to get a licence to print money but owning a currency exchange booth is the next best thing. The rates tourists are given are outrageously low, yet many tourists in London still use them.
Solution: Use an ATM card at any of the banks on the high street. Or better still order cash in advance from Travelex. Travelex
Even the most basic restaurant in London is more expensive than tourists realise. This is why Londoners find out where the restaurant deals are before going out. So while Londoners are enjoying 2 for 1 offers, a tourist could be in the same restaurant paying full price.

Most tourists go to London to see the history and attractions. But entrance fees to London attractions are not cheap. What tourists don't know is that there are major attractions no Londoner would dream of paying full price to see. So while a tourist pays full price, the Londoner rarely does.
Solution: Get the Days Out Guide which lists attractions that have 2 for 1 offers with vouchers to gain entry. Days Out Guide
"Before coming to London I'd recommend all tourists read our blog 3 Guys on a London Bus blog. It gives a good idea of what to expect and has offers available for tourists," according to Mr Rodney.
With these solutions there's no reason why any tourist should get ripped off in London. With a little careful planning, London can be enjoyed for a lot less than most tourists realise.
EPok.com was started by Ron Rodney and Norm Peters, who were later joined by Chris Peters. Based in London, England the aim of EPok.com is to give tourists in London the same money saving offers that Londoners know about and get.
To do this they produced the EPok London Pack. The Pack gives London tourists 2 for 1 offers at restaurants, money off vouchers, half price drinks at bars, a 2 for 1 theatre voucher, a what's on guide and a tips & tricks sheet to make a tourists life in London cheaper and easier.
There is also a blog, 3 Guys on a London bus, that gives advice and tips on events happening each week.
The Pack costs tourists £27 and comes with a money back guarantee. If the tourist does not think the Pack was good value they can get their money back while they are in London.
