It's just to match the normative symbols to some degree that are usually used for each of the various types of roads in each country. You can fairly easily check this by comparing any maps or roadsigns in the country you're from, the country you're in, or international road atlases, which also try to match the normative symbols. By "types" or "grades" of ...

I know an excellent service that has a highly informal interaction and is able to make suggestions based on vague requirements. It can ask questions to refine your requirements, and is even able to suggest modifications to those requirements if it thinks you can find a good deal. It has access to all the other websites that offer cheap travel, and can pick ...

I would like to expand on hippie's excellent answer with respect to Saudi Arabia. The highways symbols with the country map outline are national highways, which is a recent development as Saudi Arabia continues to build out its road infrastructure. In Saudi, the older signs simply had the name of the major destination, and the road was named for the major ...

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 ...

Based on my experience of living in Singapore for ~7 years and traveling to Malaysia by every means possible (plane, train, bus, boat, taxi & car), the absolute cheapest pre-bookable option is indeed the KTMB train from Johor Bahru to Woodlands, which will cost you the princely sum of RM 7 (~US$2) in "AEC Economy Class". Now there's a potential fly in ...

Unfortunately, the online site doens't have all the features that a phone booking or in-person booking does. Perhaps one day. It's not however, a duplicate of their functionality. Most common bookings can indeed be done online, and the assumption is travellers likely have similar discounts, if any. You have two options: Book two separate transactions, ...

I guess, you are looking for a list of this kind: The Most Popular Online Booking Sites in Travel This summarizes the country wise usage of each site so that you can get an idea depending on the area you want to visit. However, this list mostly shows the names of various international websites in use which may show you discounts and offers in the first ...

I've found Groupon Getaways helpful for this sort of "I want to travel somewhere on a budget within these timeframes/preferences" request. You can choose where in the world you would like to travel or what type of holiday you would like (eg "beach"), enter in your dates, and relevant options will appear. Some include flight + hotel, some only hotel. They are ...

To add to previous suggestions, you can have some information on the meteofrance (french public service) website. For example, for Hendaye : http://www.meteofrance.com/previsions-meteo-france/hendaye/64700 where you can see at the page bottom average rain, temperatures, and so on. (Rain is something to take into account if you plan to visit Pays Basque).

The answer strongly depends on your country of residence, because usually insurance policies are limited to residents. There are a couple resources in the UK, my favourite is: http://www.moneysavingexpert.com/insurance/cheap-travel-insurance

No, your name in kana is not really required, it's just that the booking systems for both sites are 100% geared for Japanese people. But instead of making something up, just punch your name into Google Translate and let it do the work: James Smith → ジェームス·スミス. That said, I wouldn't bother booking at all, the buses are virtually never full. Just show ...

I found one that might work, literally only on the past weekend. So good timing, potentially. And I'm aware of a more adventurous companion one too. Kicktraveler - the American spelling of traveler, but I'll let that pass - allows you to join or design trips that you want someone to come along with. It's like crowdfunding your travels - say you want to ...

OTAs usually allow third party payments, but it is normally the 3rd party that does the booking ie: your relative makes a booking and pays for it with on your behalf. That way their address, contact and payment information is in the record and you are listed as the room occupant only. In your case, you have already made the booking so your address and ...

To the extent that you are on a meta-search engine or other aggregator of information that is a third-party to the airlines (e.g. one step removed from the carrier itself) you should be okay. The systems generally pull from a GDS (global distribution system) on a read-only basis. Now, if you are searching for the fare on the carrier-owned system itself, then ...

A question asked so much, it's on their site as a frequently asked question. How can I check in and get my boarding pass? Checking in online at Spirit.com is free, and it's the quickest way to check in for your flight and print your boarding pass. Check-in begins 24 hours before departure and ends an hour prior to departure. This is also a good ...

I don't think you're going to find a complete online list of food blogs that does what you want. The reason for this is that compiling and maintaining such a list would be a very time consuming task. Even if it was based on self-submission it runs the risk of having out-of-date blogs listed or being spammed or gamed by 'for-pay' food blogs. And it's still ...
