Since you are in the UAE, you'll have to pay in Dirhams, as that is the currency there. According to a couple of answers I found on worldnomads, that's the case. There's an ATM and an exchange desk in the airport but it seems the taxis also accept credit cards. Based on your previous question however, you should know there's a free shuttle service provided ...

As the normal transfer time is one hour(plus delay over 30mins), deduct time for taxiing and gate close time, actually you have <30mins for transit. Prepare your passport and take out you computer/mobile before landing for faster security check. Choose a seat as front as possible. Pack your stuff and prepare to leave before the flight landing to leave ...

Railcards Assuming you actually mean a railcard as in the discount card, according to the how to buy page for railcards (in this case the 16-25, but you can switch to the others from the menu), they can be bought online or by phone with a UK driving license or passport (which I assume you don't have) or at any station with a manned ticket office. You can ...

To go as smoothly as possible, I would book into one of the hotels close to Heathrow that has a regular bus to/from the airport. Then after spending time in central London, I would travel to Heathrow on the tube after 8pm, so you get a seat. Then get the bus to the hotel and the bus back from the hotel the next day. (The last tube is late enough to ...

The other answers are really awesome. To me it looks a bit like all your asking is are you allowed to leave the airport on this layover? Given that you hold a passport which does not require a visa to enter Turkey You are basically a free person in Turkey, you are not being held in the airport etc, you can go where you like. There are no border ...

As you're traveling with Turkish Airlines and have a long layover, you can ask for a free tour of the city, hosted by Turkish Airlines. Here's some info: http://www.istanbulinhours.com/tour-schedule You should confirm this with the airline beforehand, as what's available depends on your schedule. Depending on the time and duration of your layover, you ...

Just after leaving the airplane, there's passport control, which is long because they're understaffed. It takes 45-60 minutes to get to taksim square, by either shuttle bus or metro. The bus because is easier, the metro is more dependable. A bus leaves every half hour. Hop in, the driver will walk and ask all passengers for money. In Turkey euros and ...

Zaventem is the name of the town where the airport is located, which is why it's often called Zaventem airport. Its official name is now Bruxelles-National/Brussel-Nationaal but this is the same airport. “Brussel-Nationaal-Luchthaven” (literally “Brussels-National-Airport”) is the train station designed to serve it. Another potential source of confusion is ...

The "Zaventem airport' station is in the airport itself. When you do the search, than the name will be corrected to Brussel-Nationaal Luchthaven or just Brussel-Nat-Luchthaven. The trains in belgium, except for a few special services, like thalys, don't have sit / train reservation. You can get any train. The only detail that you must have in account is ...

In actuality given where you are going there are public transit options available but again depends on the time of the day. You can take a train from Newark Airport to New Brunswick and then take 815/818 bus to get to the Hilton East Brunswick, so in this case the amount of time you spend in border control and customs won't really matter.

Immigration and Customs is not easy to judge in the US. It all depends on flight arrival time, number of immigration staff on desks, any delays experienced to all incoming flights, if you get of the plane first or last, number of people to process, types of visas etc etc. In my experience I have waited between 30 minutes in line and 3 hours in line. If I ...

5 hours in Lisbon is tight. It is more tight when you talk about 6am. The rush hours in Lisbon at week days usually are tough. I saw few option. Easy to go. Praça do Comercio It is the old town of Lisbon. There you can see little streets, local and old coffees and restaurants. Also you can find a lot of touristic points. My favorite is Castelo de São ...

It is possible with a bit of planning and discipline. I think you will struggle to get into the centre of town, but you might instead be able to explore the area to the east of the airport, which has been recently regenerated into a modern style area, quite different from old Lisbon. There is a nice cable car that goes along the coast, and an oceanarium. ...

I had about 7 hours of a layover in Lisbon last summer returning to Dublin from Brazil. My bag was not checked through and for the life of me I could not find a baggage depository in the airport, so I took mine with me. It may be there, but be prepared to take your suitcase with you. The Metro goes right to the airport from the city centre, though you will ...

If you bought it on one ticket then yes, it is sufficient time or it would not have been sold to you (alright perhaps I am an optimist!). Your luggage will be through-checked to CDG, if on one ticket. (If it is on two tickets it should still be possible to arrange for it to be through-checked and to pick up your GRU-CDG boarding pass at FOR. However I would ...
