If you've got a contactless credit or debit card, you don't need an oyster card. Since September 2014 you can just tap in using that contactless card everywhere you can use an Oyster card, and it charges you the same rate as an Oyster card, with the same daily capping policy. (there are other high tech "contactless" options too like NFC smartphone apps ...

From my station, a Super Off-Peak Day return is £17.80. Including a Travelcard makes it £23.30 (an increase of £5.50, to save you working that out). A one-day price-cap on Oyster is £6.40 for Zone 1 and more for other zones. If you are actually travelling into London and out to Zone 6 on your paper train ticket, then the daily cap on Oyster for that usage ...

I'd try priceline and do it during the week, not on a weekend. http://www.priceline.com/promo/name_your_own_price/flights/

Get an Oyster Card or Use Your Contactless Payment Card If you plan on travelling a total of two journeys in two days then you won't need a 2-day travel ticket (nor 2 day travel cards) as that would be to expressive, as well as overkill. The simplest option would be to get two one way tickets covering the zones you need. These will definitely be cheaper ...

Just did this today, by bike, from Amsterdam City Center. Go to the Flevopark on Amsterdam's impeccable bike lanes, then take the scenic bridge (Nesciobrug) and pedal for a few kms, mostly right along the river, in a park with bunnies (Diemerzeedijk / Waterkeringpad). You'll cross farms, sheep, friendly people. Muiden itself has a few nice cafes and is ...

In my experience, no, the day travelcard is usually cheaper. Depending on where you are going from, you might also find that you can get a railcard which makes it even cheaper still - such as the Network Railcard if you're in the area it covers, or the Two Together Railcard if you regularly travel with the same person. Both of these are £30 and get you 1/3 ...

My suggestion would be the Atlantic City jitney http://jitneyac.com/index.php Current cost is $10 to $15 dollars each way. They also do an in city service for $2.25. You could also look at the free shuttle to Egg Harbour rail station http://www.sjta.com/sjta/pdfs/Egg_Harbor_AC_Airport_Brochure.pdf Which also connects to a couple of Nj transit ...

Unless things have changed since I last looked at this (and it's been a few years), your only option is to fly. In these days of low cost carriers, it may also be cheaper to fly via eg. Kuala Lumpur on Air Asia, even though this makes no sense geographically. And for why there are no ferries: the southern Philippines (Mindanao) are strongly Muslim and in ...

If you are travelling on an Argentina passport, you will be able to apply for leave to enter at a UK port. The applicable rules for this case are found in Immigration Rules for visitors which has this to say about funds... (the applicant) must have sufficient funds to cover all reasonable costs in relation to their visit without working or accessing ...

There is a company that does self storage who advertise with luggage storage in London. I haven't tried it yet but will next time I'm passing through London.

As pointed in a comment Switzerland is an extremely expensive country. Unless you actually work there, anything you want to buy or rent will come at an outrageous price. So have a look at companies located in France. Mind that you may have to consider companies a bit further away from the border, anything close to the Swiss border is usually more expensive. ...

The likely answer is no, it would be cheaper to still buy a Travelcard from your local station. Oyster is slightly more convenient to use than a paper ticket, but not so that I would consider it worth spending more to do. But this is something you can check by comparing the cost of current Travelcard with the equivalent return ticket plus the Oyster cost. ...

I wanted to add a comment to @user568458 answer but I don't have enough reputation points yet. Until recently I used contactless credit cards, but recently I have had trouble with this system. On one occasion I was charged an extortionate amount for a single journey (yes I 'tapped out'). On another occasion I have had the credit card stop working on TFL ...

Yes, a Oyster card saves a lot of TIME, not having to buy tickets or travel cards. It may also save you money, but not having to queue up for 20 minutes to get a tube ticket is of a lot more value to me. The only time I would consider not using a Oyster card, is if I never travelled to London apart from on a rail ticket that has a very cheap “add on” ...

The current second PWSE result for the title of this question is: lastminute.com. The first is this question.

A one-month pass from Warabi to Suidobashi is 9050 yen, or 300 yen/day. You can get off anywhere in the middle (Akihabara, Ueno) for free and if you ride farther (Ginza/Shinbashi) the remaining fare is calculated as if you entered at the nearest station (to your destination). A bonus hint: getting to Big Site by train is expensive. There is some bus ...

Is there such a thing as a one month railpass for Tokyo, and is it worth the price if I take the train an average 5 times a day? No, as far as I know there are only commuter tickets, which are valid only for a specific route. Note also that there are multiple companies that operate public transportation in Tokyo, and each has their own tickets; there ...
