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:

There is the Presto card system, which you can get at the GO station, but not all subway stations currently accept it (many a tourist would use do). All streetcars apparently now do accept it. If you are primarily visiting the downtown core, you'll probably be taking the subway and streetcars, and less so buses. At subway stations you can usually pay in cash ...

There's an excellent option - go to any tourist bureau (HIS, JTB, etc.) and order tickets from there. They normally sell packages, such as tickets plus hotel and it is often way less expensive than booking tickets directly. The only issue with this option is that people in these establishments may not speak English.

When can flights be booked? Tickets go one sale twice a year on a fixed day common to all airlines. For example, tickets for flights from March 27 through October 29, 2016 all went on sale at 9:30am on January 27. The day when tickets go on sale is announced a couple weeks beforehand. The old system of selling tickets only from two months before departure ...

Some airlines (Qatar, for example) provide a form for payment verification, if the credit card holder is not traveling with the passenger. One needs to upload the monthly invoice from the credit card company to prove that he owns the card/has access to the invoices which are generally accessible only by the owner. Another alternative that I found online ...

As simple as it sounds, book a ticket which doesn't require FOP verification. For example, here's a reseller which doesn't require you to present the credit card for verification at the airport (and even accepts virtual cards). You may even book the ticket with an actual virtual credit card to be sure.

Airlines in Europe usually ask for your payment card at the airport if and only if the cardholder is travelling. I routinely book flights for my parents (directly via the airlines' webpages, never via reseller) and so far there has always been an option to indicate whether the cardholder was travelling or not. Note that some airlines (Lufthansa if I remember ...

If you are worried about showing payment, you can eliminate this by going to a travel agent and have them book the flight. That automatically verifies FOP for the ticket. You can also visit the airline's office and do the same if they serve your home town. But be sure to talk to your friend by phone BEFORE doing anything. They can call you collect. The ...

he might not be able to board the plane if he doesn't have the original form of payment. I read the linked answer and it does not mesh with my experience after hundreds of flights I took in Europe, the USA, Canada and in between. Consider people flying on the dime of some company. The passenger certainly won't have the card for that. Even in the case ...

Yes, it's possible for this to happen. I think Google themselves say it best: Please also know that the data we show can unfortunately change at any time in any direction. We generally have a very high accuracy rate, and we update our data as fast as anyone in the industry and faster than most. That said, these changes are determined by the airlines, ...
