Disposable Portable Urinal I use Travel John for tent camping and have one in my car for emergencies. It's very small when folded, the bag is filled with a powder that turns into a gel so you won't spill anything. You can also add more to it later, the gel will absorb more liquids as well. The powder has some chemicals in it to neutralize the smell. ...

I had this case once when driving with my children back from vacation. By driving I mean sitting in the middle lane of a huge traffic jam. Obviously, this was precise moment when the younger one absolutely had to pee (even though I asked 7 times if he was done at the last stop. But I digress). The solution I found is to have him "do it" into a box of ...

This solution works only for males. Karl Pilkington proposes a solution in this video: https://youtu.be/rt2h8jSdxHY Store a hot water bottle under your passenger seat. When necessary, relieve yourself in that. The advantages (from the video) are: large storage capacity wide rim to prevent, er, spillage

Ok, this seems like a silly question, but I will give it a try. In the US, if your not on the interstate system, then you likely won't have this problem. There are few "traveled" roads, that don't have small towns and what not along the path. They do exist, specially in the rocky mountain regions. Adjust the answer as needed. Number 1 Pull off an exit, ...

You did not mentioned any specific country, so I adjust the answer accordingly. When I mention "yourself", it includes children, life partners and all other people fighting with the problem. 1. Be aware if it is ok to relieve oneself in public and simply leave the car when possible Some cultures are more permissive and see the inevitability of the ...

My ex-husband drove a work truck for 2 1/2 hrs each way to the job site on the Los Angeles freeway system every day while drinking a thermos of coffee. One day he showed me his method. Drilled a hole through the floor board, stuck one end of rubber tubing into the hole, put a funnel on the other end. While driving he would "whip it out" and go into the ...

Honestly, adult incontinence products are inexpensive, highly effective, comfortable and hygienic. For example, a packet of 15 iD Slip Maxi all-in-one briefs (essentially adult diapers) costs £10 (66 p each), holds about 3-4 litres of urine, is dermatologically tested, safe, discrete, and comfortable. Glider and fighter pilots use such products, as do ...

An English male friend of mine always has several small milk bottles in the car, neck of which are big enough to allow them to be used as 'hospital bottles' and the tops are closing well enough to keep the contents in when done properly. Store them top up when used to make double sure. Select the size of the milk bottles based on need. Me, a female, ...

Find the nearest place to stop safely and get out of the car... Having traveled a LOT by car, including with/as small children, that's always been an option. If someone has such serious problems holding their bladder, invest in diapers (which exist for adults as well).

A well prepared fighter pilot driver will be equipped with a Urine Collection Device (UCD) A typical UCD consists of a small container with a dehydrated sponge inside, connected to a tube which in turn is connected to a funnel-like orifice that is adapted to the user's anatomy (different designs are used for men as compared to women). The user ...

Bring a towel or blanket, some baby wipes, and optionally a small trowel or a stick you picked up along the way. A few small plastic bags are also helpful. If someone (especially a small child) can't wait until you can exit, pull over at a safe spot. A safe spot has a shoulder significantly wider than the car, and you pull as far off as you can without ...

The one and only place to park in Venice, is the one-and-only Garage Marco Polo! Your happy car will drive in here... Of course you can easily book in advance, just phone them or use their web site, I think. I have in fact found the web site for you Henrik: http://www.GarageSanMarco.it/en They have Italian, German, English on the web site. Note that ...

The only parking I'm aware of that lets you book in advance over the Internet is at Marco Polo Airport (http://www.veniceairport.it/en/park.html). It's a good option, though; competitive prices (from 10 € a day) and plenty of services to get to and from the city (Venice Marco Polo Airport to Venice); your kids will definitely enjoy arriving into Venice by ...

The whole of August is traditionally taken as a holiday for many Italians. This is less true now than it used to be due to economic conditions amongst other things, but still a good rule of thumb. This means that cities that are not typically holiday destinations for Italians are emptied and contain mainly foreign tourists, and seaside towns that are ...

That depends a bit how often you want to access the car. For example the Framingham Logan Express offers parking at $7/night. With bus fares that would be about $125 but it takes about an hour for inbound and outbound travel Overnight parking is available at some of the MBTA lots (see http://www.mbta.com/riding_the_t/parking/default.asp?id=25204) and you ...

Economy parking at the airport would cost you $260 for 14 days and this seems to be the cheapest option around. To confirm this, you could use this price checker, and enter the dates you are looking for. Some hotels may let you park your car while you are working, as stated here

Other answers have covered the options of buying a Swiss vignette, however there's one more option you can try. When you get to the rental agency, ask if they have a car with a Swiss vignette in their inventory. While this may seem far-fetched, I've actually seen rental cars in Czech Republic with a valid Swiss vignette. Since they're valid for 14 months ...

When I last travelled to switzerland by car I was able to buy a Vignette in Frankfurt, at ADAC

Edited 1: check with your car rental company about the vignette. Border areas will most likely provide a car with the vignette already affixed if they know you will be traversing Switzerland. 2: Renting a vignette is not possible. Buying one is simple Previously In Switzerland you need a vignette to use the motorways. It costs 40 CHF and is available ...

Everthing is clearly explained in the Swiss Autobahnen site . The vignette is required for most major highways, and costs 40 swiss francs. In can be bought at "post offices, petrol stations, garages, touring club offices (TCS) and Customs". The time I used it I had rented a car in Frankfurt. As far as I recall, I got it at the border.

In Germany there are no special vignettes - it's all free. But yes, as already written in the comments, in Switzerland you need a vignette. The vignette costs 40 Swiss Francs and will be valid for one year. There is only this one version. The vignette is only needed for motorways, not for the rest. You can buy them at gas stations, or - most often - ...

You do indeed need a yearly vignette to drive on Swiss motorways. It costs CHF 40 and needs to be affixed to the windshield to be valid (in principle, merely having one somewhere in the car isn't enough to avoid a fine). The vignette for a given year is valid from the beginning of December in the year before until the end of January in the year after. I don'...

I think you are going for worst case scenario here. If by the mild chance any of these accidents occurred, you could make a claim to the broker. It would probably be best to have a copy of the bill of lading

LAZ have an online reservation system on their website, however it seems to be unavailable for that particular location. However a different site called Parkopedia lists their price list: Parkopedia shows numerous alternative parking spots in that area, so you shouldn't have an issue finding a spot:
