The conditions for the Charles Schwab card remain almost as good as indicated in @holden's answer from 2011. There are still no fees, and still total reimbursement of ATM fees. However, the fine print says that the conversion rate will be between 0.10% and 1.0% in their favor relative to some benchmark, depending on amount and currency. This is my primary ...

No, you can't, because no such airlines exist. [Transport Canada] requires domestic air services operators [...] to be majority-owned and controlled by Canadians. [ref] You could book a flight from Vancouver to LA on a US airline, of course. And might be able to book a flight to LA from Toronto via Vancouver through a US airline (through codesharing) ...

You can buy the ticket from United, and it will be on "United Stock" (the e-ticket will start with their numbers, once upon a time it would literally have been printed on paper with their logo) even though it will be on "Air Canada metal" for the first and possibly second leg. It will be called something like United 4321 operated by Air Canada. This is how ...

According to auto magazines, L / 100 km seems to be the accepted standard. However km / L is sometimes used unofficially on forums and blogs. Either way converting from one to the other is simple.

The best cheaper way I've found to get from Fez to Algiers is flying via Barcelona. As of April 2016, Fez - Barcelona - Fez is around $35-50 on Ryanair, and Barcelona - Algiers - Barcelona is around $110 on Vueling, for a total price of $150 (round trip).

My answer might be treated as humorous but like a half-full half-empty glass there is a grain of seriousness. Rule #1: If you have money then spend it wisely. Of course if you don't have any funds it's a bit more difficult to travel but if you throw money away that doesn't help either. A very good example of what should be avoided (I do apologise to ...

Booking in advance at the airport will usually save you around the same amount as the $9 fare club, you can't get both discounts. This a great option for anyone who has easy access to one of their airport locations.

If you're eating out every meal, you'll spend a lot of money (and often overpaid your meal in the touristic places). It depends a lot of what you'll eat. If you'll go to standard restaurants, the average coast for a meal with drink and dessert is between 15 and 30 euros. But if you'll go a lot to the foreign restaurants (and there are a lot of them in ...

You'll want to look around what's known as the Old Quarter of Hanoi. You'll find hotels and hostels of various levels of quality throughout the area. However, Ma May and the surrounding streets are probably a good place to start for backpacker hostels (and bars), as is the little maze of streets just to the north of St Joseph's Cathedral. The latter area is ...

The International Youth Hostel Association provides accommodation with meals provided and /or a kitchen where you can prepare your own food. Also a great opportunity of getting to know other guests. Book as soon as possible. Bruges is picturesque but not exactly alive and popping.

If Amsterdam has any place to sleep for €30 per night, grab it as soon as you sure you will travel there at the time. Double that is more likely and that only on early booking. I have no experience with Airbnb for Amsterdam, for all places I have checked their offers they came close to hotel prices, not hostels anymore. Amsterdam is one expensive city, I ...

OMG, @Doc helped me find the answer, this is the answer! These two godlike websites are mentioned there: http://www.azair.com/ https://en.skypicker.com/ They do exactly what I was looking for! And they both can do search by countries, and they both account for flexibility (allow you to choose a range of days you want to stay at your destination, for ...

Connecting Ryanair flights are not found by the search engines simply because Ryanair does not sell multi-leg tickets. You can of course buy the tickets separately, but are then left on your own if you misses your connection e.g. in RYG when flying STN-RYG-TLL. Only you can know if saving roundabout ten pounds is worth the risk having to pay several hundred ...

Actually, you can search tickets from country to country for a specific month (or the cheapest one in a year) using SkyScanner:

Norwegian Air Shuttle specifically only sells point-to-point trips - in practice, this means that rather than making one-way trips artificially expensive (and in exchange maybe having slightly cheaper two-way trips), which is what most airlines do, your itinerary has no effect on the prices. So there is no need to look for a multi-city or two-way option; ...

A fair number of airline websites offer what is called 'multi-city' booking/search option. You can create all sorts of routings, but need to consider that the airline you are searching might not serve all the city pairs. You maybe be able to use the alliance websites to create a multi-carrier itinerary. The OTA (online travel agencies) may offer a ...
