Tom
Hi! I'm Tom. It's the end of the day here in London so let's look at some ways we can really say goodbye to British people.

Bye! See you in a bit! See you in a bit means the same as 'see you later'. You could also say in a bit!

Bye! Have a good one! Have a good one means 'enjoy your free time'. I say it like this: Have a good 'un.

Are you off? Are you off means 'are you leaving?'

Catch you later! And, catch you later means 'see you later'.

Finally, when you are leaving, you can say I'm going to shoot off! Or, I'm going to shoot! And you can also say I'm going to scoot which has exactly the same meaning.

Now, I'm going to scoot off, so see you in a bit.
