If you've got a contactless credit or debit card, you don't need an oyster card. Since September 2014 you can just tap in using that contactless card everywhere you can use an Oyster card, and it charges you the same rate as an Oyster card, with the same daily capping policy. (there are other high tech "contactless" options too like NFC smartphone apps ...

Getting to and from Heathrow By train The Heathrow Connect and Heathrow Express services will operate as usual. Neither do usually accept Oyster cards, but it might be worth checking on the day. They both terminate at Paddington station; the Connect stops at several stations along the way. Travellers could get the Connect to Hayes and Harlington, then ...

I'm a non-muslim lived and worked for 9 months in Istanbul. So, here's my experience. Turkish people are really really friendly and very kind. They are known as Turkish hospitality which they as a host will take good care of you as a guest. While I was living in Istanbul, I talked and asked many questions to strangers. I never had any problems, even though I ...

Turkey is a beautiful country and Turkish citizens are very educated and well mannered pretty much everywhere. If you are taking public or private transport in Turkey, it's very common for people to help you, them typically being very kind to strangers. If you are non-Muslim, take some care of the sensitivities surrounding that, Avoid topics that might ...

From my station, a Super Off-Peak Day return is £17.80. Including a Travelcard makes it £23.30 (an increase of £5.50, to save you working that out). A one-day price-cap on Oyster is £6.40 for Zone 1 and more for other zones. If you are actually travelling into London and out to Zone 6 on your paper train ticket, then the daily cap on Oyster for that usage ...

Yes there is! Witt Hotels has some excellent information on Istanbul, which I have personally used and recommend reading. I have not used the Istanbul tourist pass or Museum pass myself as I did not deem it worthwhile for myself and based on the 'attractions' I wanted to see. Istanbul Museum Pass Public Transport Istanbul Kart for public transport To ...

I checked the Belgian railway site for you and they mention that folding bikes are free of charge. The Flanders railway company 'de Lijn' has a mention of bikes on their Dutch language site, in short you can take a folded bike for free if you do not bother other passengers but no full size bikes at all. Als u de andere reizigers niet hindert, mag u wel ...

Just did this today, by bike, from Amsterdam City Center. Go to the Flevopark on Amsterdam's impeccable bike lanes, then take the scenic bridge (Nesciobrug) and pedal for a few kms, mostly right along the river, in a park with bunnies (Diemerzeedijk / Waterkeringpad). You'll cross farms, sheep, friendly people. Muiden itself has a few nice cafes and is ...

The best way to get from Gare de Nice Ville to your hotel is to take the tram. Since it's late at night, you probably don't want to walk the whole way. But, you will probably have to wait at a tram stop. As you exit the train station, turn left and a short walk east is the "Gare Thiers" tram stop. The tram runs until just after midnight (at about 20-30 ...

Get a bemo from Senggigi to Mataram's Mandalika bus terminal (Terminal Bis Mandalika), from where there should be semi-regular onward bemos to Labuhan Lombok (about 2 hrs). Prices are fixed and should be listed on the notice board at Mandalika, it was Rp. 11,000 a few years back.

In my experience, no, the day travelcard is usually cheaper. Depending on where you are going from, you might also find that you can get a railcard which makes it even cheaper still - such as the Network Railcard if you're in the area it covers, or the Two Together Railcard if you regularly travel with the same person. Both of these are £30 and get you 1/3 ...

Sloterdijk was a village out of Amsterdam but has now been gulped up by the city and is part of it. Just like the villages around London are part of Greater London. It is within the city bus system area and on those buses you can use the travel passes for the city. And depending on where you want to be in Amsterdam, the bus might well be faster than going ...

My suggestion would be the Atlantic City jitney http://jitneyac.com/index.php Current cost is $10 to $15 dollars each way. They also do an in city service for $2.25. You could also look at the free shuttle to Egg Harbour rail station http://www.sjta.com/sjta/pdfs/Egg_Harbor_AC_Airport_Brochure.pdf Which also connects to a couple of Nj transit ...

From the Toronto airport, you also have a third option beyond Windsor & Niagara Falls: the Blue Water bridge between Sarnia & Port Huron. There's one VIA rail train per day from Toronto to Sarnia, and one Amtrak train per day from Port Huron to Chicago. Both Sarnia & Port Huron have local bus service (albeit minimal), so getting from point to ...

To get from the train station to the hotel, the most direct way is actually to walk 1.2 km (15 min). If you do want to take the bus, you will have to walk to Rue de Maréchal Joffre (10 min, 750m) and take the N5 bus. From there, you can walk 3 min (280m) to Hotel Wilson. (source) To get from Hotel Wilson to NCE, you can walk 300m to Station J.C. Bermond and ...

The Havatas bus runs 24 hours. But the bus only goes to Taksim which from your timing you won't be able to get the metro to Sultanahmet from Taksim Square. If the hotel that you will be in has a taxi service I'd suggest you to call them up and order a taxi. Or else, getting a taxi from the airport would be around 100TL. I took taxi all the time when I was ...

I don't know any other day ticket that would fit the bill but you can go from Sloterdijk station to many places in the city with the subway/metro or tramways and to Amsterdam Centraal with a bus. So the issue is one of commercial/administrative policy (trains are operated by another company), not merely the fact that Sloterdijk would be out of the GVB day ...

The passes for Vancouver and Victoria are different. I went two weeks ago from Vancouver to Victoria by bus and ferry. On the ferry you can buy in the gift shop a daily pass for buses in Victoria, costs 5 CAD. To add: you can do it in one day.

There is a ferry between Breskens and Vlissingen, running hourly at least and more in summer, during the school run and more. You can only use that ferry by bicycle or as foot passenger, cars and buses have to use a tunnel farther away, there is also bike transport through the tunnel as cyclists are not allowed to ride it. Here is a map of the area with ...

This is not rocket science: It's ample for getting from one end to the other. It's not if you have to use public transport and also want to be a tourist. But, it's easily doable. Long distance bus transport is very good in Turkey.

The train costs 29€ for any group of up to five persons (22€ if you travel after 6pm) if you buy a "Brandenburg-Berlin-Ticket" (respectively "Brandenburg-Berlin-Ticket Nacht"). You can buy this ticket online or at the ticket-machine. The price is always the same. At the counter a 2€ surcharge applies. It is not possible to buy a ticket in the train. Don't ...

The likely answer is no, it would be cheaper to still buy a Travelcard from your local station. Oyster is slightly more convenient to use than a paper ticket, but not so that I would consider it worth spending more to do. But this is something you can check by comparing the cost of current Travelcard with the equivalent return ticket plus the Oyster cost. ...

I wanted to add a comment to @user568458 answer but I don't have enough reputation points yet. Until recently I used contactless credit cards, but recently I have had trouble with this system. On one occasion I was charged an extortionate amount for a single journey (yes I 'tapped out'). On another occasion I have had the credit card stop working on TFL ...

Train tickets are never cheaper on the spot, usually they are more expensive, sometimes much more so, although on this route the price should not change very much so if you are comfortable with paying €34, you don't need to worry. As @neo explained, there are also some special tickets that might allow you to save some money, especially if travelling with a ...
