Well this is one good thing about backpacker hostels. In a hostel you still may need to wait until check in time, but they should always have one or more common areas with couches, beanbags, hammocks, deckchairs, etc. where you can doze off. They also have shared bathrooms so you can have a shower almost any time. This doesn't mean you have to sleep in a ...

Promoting a comment to an answer I think what you want is a Day Use Rate. Not all hotels offer them, but many do, especially around airports. As the name suggests, it's the use of a room in the hotel during the day, but not overnight. Typically, you'll have to be out by late afternoon, so that the room can be cleaned in time for a guest to use it from ...

The overall cost really depends on whether you want to bring a vehicle or not. It is much more expensive to bring a vehicle. If you want to bring a vehicle, then your only reasonable option is the ferry. There are two ferry services: Interislander Bluebridge If you do not want to bring a vehicle, the cheapest way is probably to fly (although the ferry ...

Picking a random date in the future, Rome2Rio shows that flying to Larnaca and then going by airport shuttle is probably the cheapest option in terms of paying. However, if you're searching elsewhere for flights, check out both Larnaca and Ercan as options, and flying out of both CDG and ORY in Paris, as they seem to produce quite different prices. Other ...

The only airline with regular scheduled flights to the Faroe Islands is Atlantic Airways, the flag carrier. There are daily flights to/from Copenhagen and less frequently to/from Keflavik, Bergen and Billund. However, they are probably already fully booked for the days near the eclipse ... Your best bet may be to find a dedicated eclipse tour with a ...

Bus is around 80-90 € (return). I think that there is very expensive and only an option if Flight depends on the day and company. The cheapest companies are Ryanair and EasyJet. Expect to pay at least 40 € for a return ticket to Porto and 60 € to Lisbon. Anyway, you can find one way tickets from 15 € to Porto or 27 € to Lisbon if you plan in advance. I ...

In most cases, this is not possible. The issue is that carrying a paying passenger like a taxi requires a different license and insurance. For private cars, this can be circumvented in many cases by using the car as a "rental with driver" as you can see on many airports (non-taxi limousines) which are not allowed to pick up passengers on the road but need to ...

As you are bringing a cycle and panniers, etc, you may find flying to be the cheapest and most convenient. Because Thailand is a popular destination for European tourists there are usually fare deals being offered. But there is no etched in stone cheapest routing, the fares vary from day to day and so you need to sit down and do some searching on the ...

What about adioso It gives you the option to specify a destination city, country, region, continent or even simply 'anywhere', 'international' or 'domestic'. You can also specify a date or a date range for either outbound or inbound flights: It then lists the results in a very neat way as if they were packages: The only thing I wasn't able to find ...

Here are a few search engines that do seem to offer the options you are looking for (all of them have been mentioned on this site before): Momondo requires you to pick a date but then displays a graph with prices for a whole month. Adioso offers several ways to flexibly specify dates and also accepts a whole country or region as destination. Kayak's ...

I don't think there is a country that everyone would agree as the cheapest (and better) country. There is a nice community-contributed index here: http://www.numbeo.com/cost-of-living/rankings_by_country.jsp India is the cheapest country per se, but in the northern region, there are some cities that you can spend same, or even more than one would spend in ...

Some airlines have group desks or departments which will deal with individuals. You can sometimes find the group desk contact info on the airline's website, otherwise just call their reservation center and ask for the group department. Other airlines only sell through travel agencies. In general group rates are not really that much of a bargain, you can ...

Additionally, many hotels do let you check in early. You might check with the hotel you have already booked. Ask them in advance if they allow early check-in, and if there's any charge. They may say there isn't early check-in, but you can check again when you arrive at the hotel the morning of your reservation. I have found that if they have rooms available ...

I thought about this long and hard, while this question is for a specific destination, the question per se is "What's a better way to find flights when cost is important and schedule is not". I do not want to point at one specific website, but I think as a concept the answer could be http://flightfox.com/ or https://www.darjeelin.com/ they do charge a minor ...

I support your original idea: Flying to Strasbourg SXB, taking a local train from the airport downtown (costs like €4, can be bought at the station, and takes like 20 minutes), visiting the Strasbourg city centre since it's really beautiful, and then taking a TER train from Strasbourg to Nancy (the ticket costs at most €25, less if you book in advance, it ...

Cheaper Is Not the Way For the purpose of safety I will start of by repeating what other have mentioned: looking for the cheapest place to learn something potentially life-threatening is probably not a good idea. Ask yourself how these places can afford to charge less for the organisation of an activity, and the maintenance of gear, both of which are ...

Not anymore. Now you'd have to sell a blue auto... Nowadays you can buy a heck of jeans of various quality everywhere, from marketplaces to supermarkets. The prices in, for example, Poland, are much lower than in Germany, so you'd have more luck selling your jeans in Germany... Before the 1990s the situation was completely different. Almost everything was ...

To 1:) This is actually quite simple. For example, the search engine Kayak.com offers this: click on "Multi-city" and just add all the parts of your journey. Only list cities in which you want to leave the airport - there may still be layovers on the individual parts of the journey. Note that this will find airfares that are for return flights (with ...

FX spreads will be tight in venues where the currency pair has liquidity, and will be wide where the pair is less liquid. As a general rule, currencies are most liquid in their home country and if you are holding MYR and want THB, you will can expect narrow spreads in Malaysia or Thailand, and wider spreads as you move farther away from those venues. The ...

This are actually 2 questions. Travelling by truck is possible. Just check some hitchhikers' blogs or meet them personally. Many truck drivers are bored and want to talk a bit or want to earn some extra and don't mind taking some passengers. Is it safe? If it wasn't, you wouldn't met many people doing that. It's the matter of trust and the ability to ...

A possible way to do 1 is to first use search engines to find out which airlines offer both flights with and without stopovers, and then book directly from the airline's website. Usually, you are able to select both legs separately among all their offered flights.
