You first take the train to Düsseldorf Hbf (main station). It is a 5 to 10 minutes ride (depending on the number of stops) and there are some 6 to 8 trains/hour. From there, you can either walk about 10 minutes to your hotel or take the 709 or 719 tram to the "Berliner Allee" stop and walk from there. Taking a taxi from the airport to the hotel is of ...

Also see Timatic. As to visas, Singapore issues them electronically, they are not stamped in your passport. You may apply for a visa as soon as you know your new passport ...

The only advice she got from the travel agency is to use disability services. Not disability services, but you can use the meet and assist services from the airline that are provided to minors. The same service is available for elderly travelers and those needing extra assistance. This would make sure someone receives her at the gate, takes her ...

I have thought about that as I wanted to organize a trip for my parents. So here are my suggestions: Buy her a small phrasebook, so she'd have some phrases translated from her native language to English Write some notes like "Can you please help me find my gate?", "Where do I go for … Terminal #", "Where do I find representative of … airline …" and few ...

There are various ways to help her get from the start to the end: Have a phone with her. Make sure it supports all of the frequencies the countries use she's going through (most newer phones do, but some older phones don't), and a SIM card that has roaming enabled. If she can use a smartphone then also try to get a SIM card that supports data roaming as in ...

She will have boarding passes for the connecting flights, just wave one of them at nearly anyone in uniform and they will point which way to go. "Big international airports" deal with this kind of thing many, many times per day. Won't surprise them one bit. Does she read the roman alphabet? Recognize numbers 0-9? Knows the standard pictograms? She'll be ...

You can use your Oyster card within the Greater London area on busses, trains, underground, overground and the DLR. Outside of the Greater London area there are some places where you can use your Oyster card, but they are also close to London and usually within the M25. Gatwick is much further away to London, so you won't be able to use your oyster from ...

You can get an Oyster card from the airport. However, it's not available on the trains yet. You'll have to buy a ticket at the station (there are machines on your right as you walk into the train station at the airport). If you want to go to Monument, you'll only have to change once, and you won't need to buy a new ticket. Buy a ticket at Gatwick to ...

The answer to this question (and many others) will change in late 2018 or early 2019 when Crossrail opens. For future reference, board a Thameslink train at Gatwick (the likely destinations for this service are Bedford, Luton, Peterborough, Cambridge or King's Lynn) and change at Farringdon for a Crossrail train to Paddington. Because this journey will be ...

Let me expand on the "train transfer". It's pretty easy. I would say this is the best way to go, all things considered, especially because your hotel is right by Penn Station and so you don't have to navigate the NYC subway. Buses or airport shuttles might be cheaper but are subject to traffic; taxis cost quite a bit more. AirTrain is just an airport ...

The 72 Hour Transit Visa is applicable when you fly from country A to country B via one of the authorized airports in China and wish to stop over. To the best of my knowledge there are no restrictions prohibiting doing it again on the return journey. There are restrictions if you have separate tickets, ie: London to Beijing and then a separate Beijing to ...

The Northeast Corridor railroad connects Penn Station and Newark Airport, and the train trip is less than a half hour. Options include Amtrak and New Jersey Transit. NJT has more trains and is cheaper, while Amtrak has fewer stops (actually, looking at the map that might not be true -- it appears that the NJT train doesn't stop until Newark). In either case ...

From the Charleroi Airport website page for "Rail and Bus", you'll discover that there's a special shuttle bus between the airport. It's Bus A, and the price is included in the cost of the train ticket if you buy a ticket to/from the airport. It takes about 20 minutes from the airport to the station at Charleroi. There are special train tickets for travel ...

If those times are on weekdays, traffic will be very bad. I would recommend the train, connecting to a NJ Transit train to Manhattan. The reverse when you leave.

Given LaGuardia's location you will have to use Ground Transportation irrespective of where you're coming from at some point of your journey. The simplest way to get from LaGuardia to Penn Station would be to use the NYC Airporter or a cab. Price will vary but would be as close to a door-to-door as you can get. Otherwise if you feel like using public ...

When leaving JFK, get the free Airtrain shuttle to the Lefferts Blvd station stop then get off and get the Q10 bus to Ozone Park Lefferts Blvd subway station where you can get the A train to the city. Transfers are free between bus and subway when you use a metro card. Do the reverse to get to the airport.

The answers are yes, no, depends on the airport. I have never been on this particular route, but by international agreement airports let transitioning passengers stay in the airport until their next flight. Do not try to leave the airport, you need a visa for that. Your third question is the tricky one. You may (but maybe not) need to pick up your bags ...

For the cheapest way avoid the 747 and private buses. Get either the 16 or the 41 to the city centre (costs €3.05; paid to the driver). From Terminal 1 walk out the main exit from Arrivals cross the road and walk through the car park atrium. You'll find the bus stop on the other side. Get off the bus at O'Connell Street in the city centre. It's a wide ...
