Nicky Kelvin and Liam Spencer from The Points Guy and prolific travel content creator Maz Green come together for a day in London with a difference: the first of an exciting series of videos coming to The Points Guy Arrivals YouTube channel that sees us try to find the perfect day out in London on three very different budgets.

Nicky tackles the U.K. capital with a budget of just 10 pounds (about $12.85) to play with, Liam takes the challenge to the midrange with 100 pounds ($128.50) and Maz goes wild for her luxe day with 1,000 pounds to spend ($1,285). Each participant enjoys an activity, food (focusing on the popular British tradition of Indian food), drinks and transport.

Check out the video below to see how they got on.
