I doubt that you will get a complete and trustworthy answer unless an employee from SJ decides to answer here and publish confidential information about their pricing strategy. Nevertheless, perhaps some of my observations can be of some help. One unusual thing about the SJ ticket pricing is that even the price of refundable tickets vary depending on demand....

The cheapest tickets are released 90 days before departure, so that's when you should start looking. The cheapest tickets on the X2000 and SJ 3000 servives cost SEK 195, while for InterCity Train it's usually SEK 95. X2000+SJ 3000 are all-reserved, so if all places sell out there'll be no more tickets May I ask what route(s) you're doing?

I recommend you not to book and find a hotel when you get there because in the internet it might look different. And there're plenty of the hotels anyway. Get a list of the hotels where you'll want to stay with the prices. Be aware that most of the locals in Indonesia, such as motorbike and taxi drivers as well owners of guesthouses and street vendors, love ...

There are a lot of hotels in Bali and Lombok, so I think you will be fine without booking in advance. However, I would recommend that you do otherwise, unless you're willing to take the first hotel you see. I once did this in Jogjakarta (no booking) and won't do it again. It's a waste of time, going from one hotel to another to find the best price. ...

Short answer: No, that's not the case. I think what you've heard was a little mangled in the telling. There are indeed only three large airline Global Distribution Systems (GDS), which are the systems where both tariffs (prices) and reservations are created, stored and accessed. These are Travelport (Galileo/Apollo/Worldspan), Amadeus and Sabre, the last ...

No, it isn't and it was never. And they won't tell who uses what. Several airlines don't participate in any of those systems, but force all sales through their own system (example: Southwest). They have obviously some disadvantages from that, but also some advantages; they think it is the better solution. Google's ITA (http://matrix.itasoftware.com/) or ...

For the hotel chains Hilton and IHG this is possible: Hilton For Hilton this is an official feat of their booking site. Select a hotel, a room type and a rate, click "change dates" and you'll arrive here: check the button "Use flexible dates" and you can see the best rate and scroll back and forth by as much as you want. tip of the hat to travel-...

I have in the past (ca. 2 years ago) successfully booked and stayed at Airbnbs using another person's credit card, without the card holder staying with me. It is fine. I also agree with @Berwyn that once the booking has gone through you are fine. Some airlines do have the hassle of asking for the credit card used for the booking at check in and once I did ...

arbnb charges the credit card as soon as the booking is accepted. If the payment goes through then airbnb has accepted it. If the payment has not been reversed in the day or two afterwards, you should have nothing to worry about.

The consequences (for you) depend what kind of card it is (is it a pre-paid card, a debit/check card or a credit card); however as a simple matter if the card has no balance - and no "overcharge" feature, the request will be rejected with a notice stating the same. Keep in mind that they may have pre-authorized the charge (also called a "hold") if so, the ...

Here is how I understand your codes and what they mean: It means you are wanting to board a train at an intermediate stop, not either end (that's what RL signifies). You were originally wait list #2 (WL2) for a confirmed berth (CNF). A confirmed birth is basically a single person bed/bench/bunk. You are RAC, which means you can board the train, but are ...

No you don't all need an account. Only one (the one who makes the booking) is enough. Source: I have often stayed at Airbnbs together with other people (either as the one who made the booking or accompanying) and no multiple accounts were necessary. You only need to specify the number of guests, you wouldn't even need to give their emails. Since you get ...

If your only requirement is to keep legs under 6 hours going from New York to Tokyo, I would say New York-Vancouver-Anchorage-Kamchatka-Tokyo, which is close to a straight line, but would not be cheap (not a lot of airlines competing on that Anchorage-Kamchatka route). In general, I don't a website that lets you limit per-leg time, but Hipmunk (among others)...

I'm not sure how you intend to prove that the agent bought you the same ticket (the basis of your claim); and pocketed the difference. Consider the following: It is normal for airlines to offer cheaper fares on their website than agents; or hold different promotions that are not offered to agents. The fare type/class/code may be different; you may not be ...

Six hours makes searching easy if you are crossing continents because you will need a mid-ocean stop and there are not many of those. After that you just know which big hubs are roughly en route and stitch it together. You are reverting to a much earlier era of flight. Is it doable still? Yes, but don't expect it to be easy or quick. In other words: the way ...

I like hipmunk.com for this sort of stuff. It gives a nice overview of flight segments (including letting you know if wifi is available on which legs) and you can filter by stops and other features:

Before I deleted this answer I gave the /maxdur option to ITA Matrix as documented here. Unfortunately that only allows you to limit the maximum duration of the whole component of your flight. So, either the whole outbound, or inbound, or in the multi-city tab, the origin and destination. It would be possible to use the multi-city option to contruct an ...

From Easyjet on Twitter: 'If you've already selected seats, these will automatically be transferred to your new flight so no worries. (1/2) If the seats you chose are no longer available, we'll allocate the closest match we can find. Any issue, please DM. Anna (2/2)' Hope this helps.

There isn't really a definitive answer to this question. It all depends on how many people book for said day, what time of day, and then who books in advance. Personally, I would buy tickets in advance, so that if there was a big queue on the day for the non-advance tickets, I would be fine. Based on the fact that people have only got to scan QR codes in ...

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:
