Yes you can do this but be aware of the following things: You might have completely different (harder-to-obtain) visa requirements, check carefully before! In case of a delay of your first flight (A to C) you loose your second ticket (C to B) under most ticket conditions. If you travel with check-in luggage you likely have to re-check your bags. This ...

Oyster and Visitor Oyster are more alike than they are different. They are both stored-value cards that deduct the price of trips as you make them, up to a daily cap. Journey prices and coverage are the same for both variants. Each kind of card can be topped up with cash or credit at machines found all over the system, if you find yourself using more than ...

You can find a detailed description of the stamp content on this page (in German). The calendar week and last digit of year assumptions in the comments are correct. Your ticket was stamped 10:00 on the Sunday (So) of calendar week 15 (April 11th to 17th) in the year 2016 by ticket validator number 5 on U-Bahnhof (subway station) Schönleinstraße. The weekly ...

I do this all the time and I always book the C-B flight connecting to the next A-C flight. I am rarely time constrained and spending a day in a hotel is not a big issue for me (I work remotely anyways). Yes, this means the cost of the hotel needs to be factored in. However, as mentioned in the original post, you might be doing this for other reasons than ...

As I thought after a look on a map, there are options to travel by trains without going through Paris. At a random date and time from the French SNCF site: 09H05 RENNES to 10H16 LE MANS change 10H43 LE MANS to 11H43 ST PIERRE DES CORPS change 12H03 ST PIERRE DES CORPS to 12H42 POITIERS Or, (this time from the German website) Rennes ...

I'm a resident of Berlin since birth (some 25–30 years ago) and I never owned a car. Imho the transportation system is perfectly sufficient under most circumstances. The exceptions are according to my experience: You need to transport heavy or unwieldy objects on a regular basis. You need to ride often on weekday nights between 1:00 and 4:30 a.m. from or ...

There are plenty of buses to Eugene from other cities. From Eugene there is a bus to the McKenzie River Ranger Station a few times a day https://goo.gl/maps/UypiSvpMkk12 From there, its a 10 mile hike. Could make a nice little backpacking overnight trip.

Which Stations Are Accessible? TMB says that all the Metro network is wheelchair accessible, except for a few stations (15 out of 156). These tend to be the older/non-recently-refurbished stations. The Barcelona Metro map lists them: This website lists all the stations with lifts. Locating Lifts TMB also says that you can locate accessible stations ...

Indeed, the French transportation network is organised very centrally around Paris. Looking at the map of the recent (it might change rapidly) intercity bus connections provided by comparabus.com (some website to book buses) and the train network maps provided by the SNCF for Intercités and TGVs, it looks clear that most trains and buses are centered around ...

I will only be in London for 2 days and plan to take the tube no more than 2 or 3 times, so it doesn't make much sense to buy an oystercard. You can buy single journey paper tickets for the tube, but they strongly discourage it through pricing. I just looked up a zone 1 tube fare and it was £2.40 on oyster but £4.90 on a paper ticket. At those prices ...

For these short stays usually the best option is pay as you go ticket, as these have daily caps - so you will never pay more than you would for a few daily tickets. If you have a compatible contactless card, you don't even need to buy the oyster card: https://tfl.gov.uk/fares-and-payments/contactless?intcmp=8257 Note that I am not sure if oyster/contactless ...

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 ...

Today, for leaving April 29 and returning May 3: The quickest is a CVG-ORD flight, which is $452 round trip. Cheaper is Amtrak, which starts at $98 round trip. In both directions this train runs overnight. Cheaper still is Megabus, which will be $44 round trip if you buy right this minute, and will go up if you wait. (And thanks to Karlson for the ...

As chx pointed out, you will need to clarify what "best" is. Cheaper? Faster? Most convenient? Most frequent? I'll concentrate on the train part. There are two train stations in CDG: "Aéroport Charles de Gaulle 1" is only served by the "RER" (suburban train / express metro). It is located in "Roissypôle", which is about halfway between Terminal 1 and ...

I think you should look for the disabled metro map, which is easily to find on google. I would explain more but I think the image says pretty much all. You will have to zoom to read which stations have "annoying stairs" and stations with elevator. About the steps that separate the ticket barriers and the platform, you can't really know, but I highly ...

Going to the official TrenItalia site as of today (end of April) for mid June: I see there is essentially one travel solution where you first take a fast train from Florence to Rome and then a sleeper to Tropea (so I didn't bother checking for the return). You have to choose your type of seats/beds so make sure you get to this page by clicking on the ...

In addition to Michael's answer you can use buses: Megabus - $35 Greyhound - about $50 Round Trip And in Chicago you can use Chicago public transportation to get to O'Hare.

There aren't any direct buses or trains from Edinburgh Airport to Dundee. Any journeys will involve at least one change somewhere. For travelling by bus, the quickest and cheapest option would probably be via Halbeath park and ride, near Dunfermline. This is doable in about 1 hour 40 minutes, depending on what time of day. From Edinburgh Airport, take the ...

The Citylink M92 route has one at 4:15 (1615) from Edinburgh Bus Stn St Andrews Sq to Dundee Seagate Bus Station Arr and then next stop at Dundee Seagate Bus Station Dep that has very few stops in between. However this is not from the Airport bus stop itself and you will have to travel to the St Andrews Square bus station. You can take the 747 bus from the ...

You can ride a scooter direct; give yourself a full day to do the trip. The road is reasonable but busy with traffic, trucks hauling cargo between Bali and Java. Also, arm yourself with a valid international drivers licence when riding around Bali to fortify against the inevitable Bali style traffic fines. It is quite a nice ride.

Access Narita limousine bus is the cheapest option to/from Narita airport. It costs only 1000 yen one-way to Tokyo or Ginza stations and preschool kids are free if sitting in your lap. So, for the family with two preschoolers it costs only 2000 yen one way. From Tokyo or Ginza, it's an additional 200 yen by train to Shinjuku. Note however that it is only ...

Option 1: Take the metro to Milano Centrale and use one of the direct airport buses from there I think your best public transport option is the one you already found: take the metro from Lampugnano to Centrale. Three options are available (ordered by simplicity in terms of changes, and shortest route in terms of number of stops): M1 (red) from Lampugnano ...

I have no experience in paragliding. However, I often see people paragliding on the Salève (a small mountain nearby Geneva, accessible by public transport and a cable car). I also often see people paragliding in Chamonix (Brévent). You can take a bus to Chamonix in the center of Geneva (Gare routière de Genève).

The best cheaper way I've found to get from Fez to Algiers is flying via Barcelona. As of April 2016, Fez - Barcelona - Fez is around $35-50 on Ryanair, and Barcelona - Algiers - Barcelona is around $110 on Vueling, for a total price of $150 (round trip).

You should definitely try blablacar (https://www.blablacar.fr/), as pointed out by mts (sorry I cannot comment yet!). It is very used in the Vallée du Rhône, I'm sure you will find a friendly driver. If you don't find your route directly on the website, try broadening the start/finish of your trip by looking on a map. I use a lot blablacar as a driver, ...

Rome2Rio says that you can get a Eurolines bus from Paris CDG to Calais. The journey lasts approximately 5 hours and is significantly cheaper than the train. Below is a screenshot from Rome2Rio: Eurolines agrees with this. Buses run to Calais Centre Ville, Calais Ferry, and Calais-Cité-Europe. Below is a sample quote for CDG to Calais Centre:

The train station is located in Terminal 2 (between 2D and 2F). Not sure if the train will be the cheapest way to go to Calais. The bus or a shared car might be cheaper (but also take more time). For instance, with the bus, you can get to Lille from CDG for just 9€ : http://uk.ouibus.com Then from Lille to Calais, with the bus, train or shared car, it ...

When visiting an establishment, it is always good to check with them first for any transportation recommendations. In this case, the travel to Woodbury Common page has many sets of directions and links for various modes. They include a link to an official MTA page on getting out to Woodbury Common Premium Outlets. You can do it in as few as two transfers ...

From my experience... Yes, traveling in Colombia is rather easy, often time consuming but what to expect from such a vast country. Long distance busses - they are rather comfortable, usually with toilets and WiFi. Finding schedule is a problem but you can always ask at the bus station (e.g. at the arrival), We had no problems with reservations or anything ...
