As jcaron pointed out, details vary from country to country. Some general remarks: In some European countries, residents are required to register with the municipal authorities of their primary place of residence. But that's really a detail for the Expatriates site. It becomes relevant to the Travel site when you consider that hotels would be an obvious ...

I know that some starwood hotels allow you to entirely skip the check-in process and simply walk up to your room and use your mobile to unlock the door; although this isn't anonymous. I also know of some hotels that allow you to check in as an alias; but again, this isn't anonymous this is just an extra layer of privacy to prevent people from asking for you ...

In fact both, the Custom Department and RBI are correct. Passengers visits for different purposes. So they are entitled to different amount of foreign exchange. Foreign exchange can only be purchased from authorised persons. So there may be any amount. However specifically for tourism only US$ 10000 can be taken in a calendar year.

Your fan, or its power supply, should have a label on it indicating the acceptable power inputs. You should find something like: Input AC 120-240V 50-60Hz This gives the range of voltages and frequencies that are acceptable. If it says "50-60Hz" then you are OK at 50Hz. (Or any other range that includes 50Hz, but other ranges will be very rare.) If it ...

The answer is unfortunately not as simple as stated by CMaster. If the device contains an AC motor directly driven by the mains voltage, reducing the mains frequency will indeed cause the motor to rotate slower, but it may also overload the motor. It is difficult to easily explain the physics behind this, but basically, a motor needs a larger magnetic core ...

Besides trying your hand at searching through the usual suspects (Adioso, matrix.itasoftware.com, google flights, hipmunk, etc.), which is going to give you the actual cost of flying, I've found the following: It's possible to get a roundtrip on most major airlines between a few big South American cities and a few European cities for as low as 500 euros. In ...

If the system is simple enough, it shouldn't be a problem. The motors will work, just spin slower. If there's more complicated electrics going on, or slowing the speed of the fan will effect the actual role of the device, then you might have bigger problems. Edit: While this answer covers "does it run", other answers have shown that there additional ...

I generally use SkyScanner to identify a few low-cost routes, then matrix.itasoftware.com to find a likely good date for one of those routes, and then, check around that date on kayak.com, momondo.com, and adioso.com And when I think I've found the best deal, check the airline's website to make sure. Sometimes it is a little less. This doesn't always get ...

You can monitor the flyertalk mileage run deals forum. Also, the cheap city pair thread.

You could try a site like skyscanner, or along those lines. I've had experience with booking really cheap flights from at least inside the US to different locations. Also the site allows you to search the whole month

For UK you can use tello.co.uk, their pay as you go credit doesn't expire and they say that they keep your SIM active for 6 months. I have it from Nov 2014 and didn't use it for almost 9 months and it was still active when I spend my Christmas holidays back home. They have low rates and the signal in good inside the city

I found a great place called Saunia at the Gallerie in Nové Butovice. It has at least 5 types of sauna and a steam room, relaxation areas, cold pool shaved ice, and cold water buckets. Only thing missing from my requirements are the pool and hot tub. For 2 people for two hours we paide 450 CZK. Towels were included :D

The short answer is: there isn't any. There is no such thing as anonymous booking nor anonymous check-in. What you have described is simply automatic collection of keys on late arrival or arranged/instructed by the hotel. Just because some European countries have lenient regulations it does not mean that they encourage anonymous stays. There is an implicit ...

A while ago, my Paris/Nice train ticket was 17 euros, booked maybe 3 months ahead of my trip; booked the day before travel, my friend's ticket on the same train was 60 euros, so booking your train seat months ahead can get you a better price. Megabus (uk.megabus.com for Europe; us.megabus.com for USA) tickets are much cheaper than Eurolines tickets and the ...
