In many European countries private bus operators are not allowed to compete with the public transportation system. This is the case in France, Switzerland, and the Benelux countries. This means that a bus operator like Eurolines cannot transport people within those countries, even though their buses might have several stops. In Germany the ban on domestic ...
Sort of a match for what you're looking for: http://adioso.com.
You can check out Eurolines and Busabout for a bus Europe travel if you're in a budget. My relatives recently traveled there but I remember they have used http://www.voyajo.com/ for their trip.
As far as I know there is no such website or app that allows to book last-minute cheap flights. So you have to use any of the well-known services. In particular, the flight trip between Barcelona and Madrid (or viceversa) is known as "puente aereo" (literally "aerial bridge") and in general the cheapest company that operates this route is Vueling (13 flights ...
Disclaimer: I actually never booked a single flight through them. Rome2Rio gives the following prices for single routes: Italy to the US: 259 Euro Spain to the US: 290 Euro London to the US: 306 Euro I didn't enter specific dates.
1) Yes your phone can work overseas. With Sprint it seems that you will have to request for them to unlock the phone for international use. They appear to have a requirement that you are an existing customer in good standing - which I take to mean that you pay your bills. Call Sprint Worldwide Care on 888.226.7212 to get it done. 2) Plenty of the uk ...
The nearest one from Barcelona is Sant Lloren ( 30 minutes by car ). There is a monastery on the top of the mountain. Alternatively you can go to Parc Natural del Montseny. ( 1 hour by car ).
There's a lot of street meter parking in San Jose, CA, and a couple of garage structures with entrance tickets. Parking in the garage could be expensive, but many businesses do validation of certain garage parking, and thus you can often park for free if you're willing to purchase something in a participating nearby business: Safeway in downtown has an ...
From Berlin, the closest non Schengen destination is the Kaliningrad Oblast. The beeline distance is +- 500 kilometers and over the road its +- 600 kilometers. There are direct flights between Berlin and Kaliningrad. It is just one hour. Otherwise, there are a couple of places in non Schengen countries that you can reach in more or less 2h30 by plane: ...
It is completely possible. You can for example buy interrail/eurail pass train tickets. With this train pass, you can take trains for 2 months. If you do that, you can spend less than 6000 USD. For example, I spent 1 month in Europe and I travelled 5 countries, 17 cities (most touristic and expensive ones) and I only spent 1500 EUR. The only bad thing about ...
Swiss Pass could be a very good option. When I went to Switzerland for 4 days, I paid in pounds (£153 if my memory serves me correct), and traveled the whole Swiss network for 4 days. They have some limitations, but the cost is worth it.
For tourists there exist passes and reduction cards. See www.swisstravelsystem.com The best offer, in my opinion, is the "Swiss Half Fare Card", which gives half price travel on the whole network (including also 50% of on mountain railways), for 120,- CHF, for a whole month.
The credit card format ticket was either a Halbtax Abo, a Generalabonement or a Gleis 7. The Halbtax Abo is basically a subscription that is valid for 1, 2 or 3 years and that will reduce all train tickets by 50%. The subscription itself costs around 150 CHF per year. The Generalabonement is is a ticket for one year that allows you to use any train, and ...
As already said, the best option would be to buy a used bike. You can find very good offers on eBay kleinanzeigen. You can find a good bike even for under 50 EUR. Another option is wo-bleibt-mein-fahrrad.de. They buy, sell and repair old bikes in Leipzig. I'm not sure if that would be useful for you, but maybe there are some interesting cheap bikes.
Rental prices are not designed for periods of more than a few days. It might be possible to negotiate a long-term price at a flexible rental business. It's definitely possible to get a decent used bike for 50-100 EUR. There's a risk that it could be a stolen one, but almost none of running into problems, even if it is. I'm pretty sure that shipping a bike ...
For many years prior to March 2011, you could park for free on the streets in downtown Denver, from 22:00 until 02:00, but there was no street parking between 02:00 and 06:00 (supposedly for street sweeping). Almost every single web-resource you find nowadays, two years later (April/May 2013), still insists that parking between 22:00 and 02:00 is free, but ...
If you perform a search for flights on Kayak, it will sometimes show an airfare predictor in the top left-hand-corner of the results window, showing whether prices are predicted to fall or rise in the next 7 days (and therefore, whether you should purchase the ticket now or wait). This only seems to happen when enough people have searched for that route ...
I ran into Hipmunk. This online airfare aggregator has a graphical airfare predictor. Exactly what I have been looking for.
I was quite impressed with the Tokyu Stay chain recently. Full review of their Nihonbashi hotel here, but quoting the pertinent bit: As for the rooms themselves, they're mini-apartments: all but the very smallest come with a kitchenette, full-sized fridge and a washer-dryer. The twin room we stayed in is 30 m2, spacious for Tokyo, with two beds ...
I would also check Airbnb, as there a lot of place listed for a variety of budgets https://www.airbnb.com/s/Japan I travel on various budgets around Asia with my family and we regularly use Airbnb (or Flipkey as well, but Airbnb has been better with budget places) to book an apartment for ourselves. My days of sleeping in capsule hotels are far in the past ...
Just to add some more up to date info: There are different levels of dining plan. The main one includes 1 table service and 1 counter service per person per day of your vacation. This dining plan no longer includes an appetizer, and it does not include gratuity. Also, the dining plan has been increasing in price each year, outpacing the increase in menu ...
There is a fairly comprehensive listing of Guernsey accommodation on Visit Guernsey Unfortunately there are indeed no hostels listed. There are a variety of guesthouses, inns and self-catering options. Or another option might be Couchsurfing, since there are a few hosts there.
I contacted the Guernsey Information Centre, North Plantation, St Peter Port, GY1 2LQ Email: email@example.com There response was simply: "Sorry we do not have hostels in Guernsey only normal camp sites"
I think best way to get this informations is ask the consuls this country in your country (it is good because he/she probably speak in your language and know this regulations). A few years ago I was traveling in Balkans (Serbia, Montenegro, Macedonia) and I slept in such a places which owners for sure don't register me. When your are going by car just look ...
