There is no online database lookup when you leave Italy. At the most they will check your passport to make sure it is valid, and stamp it if necessary. Theoretically this could be done if you use the passport e-gates if they're at the airport you're using and you're eligble to use them. However, there is absolutely zero chance that Italian bureaucracy would ...

According to the ataf website (which I can transalte for you in the part concerning administrative fines), you have 15 days to pay the fine before getting a written notification. After the notification, you will have to pay the full fine (rather than a reduced one) within the next 60 days. After that term, an additional procedure (possibly via court) will ...

There is no chance that you will have any issue with this. However, if the fine is very small (less than 50E), pay it. I went into trouble once on the way to Pisa from Florence. Nobody told us to stamp the ticket, and the conductor got us. He asked us to pay a fine of 25E and stamped all three.

Without getting into the philosophical paradoxes inherent in asking about "the most expensive free trip", I'm pretty sure the longest duration & distance that you can pull off with an Opal card in a single day without backtracking is Goulburn, NSW to Scone, NSW by train: https://goo.gl/maps/6nYEY2oTjqT2 This clocks in at a cool 513.54 km per the ...

There is no option to get a refund on unused travel. There is a mobile payment system, but it requires you to provide your bank account and authorize direct debit. Weekly tickets are not all that expensive and are valid across all means of public transport (bus, tram, U-Bahn, S-Bahn) A weekly tickets for zones A and B costs around 30 Eur. ...

All local tickets work on both trains/metro and buses. There is an Oyster-like contactless card called Rejsekort, which gives fares about half of those of discrete tickets. Unfortunately it's not terribly convenient for visitors. The transport agencies are pushing hard to get everyone to use name-registered cards (which require ordering in advance and ...

The TfL website does not mention a deposit refund for faulty Oyster cards. They only mention that after you get a new card they will transfer the credit and passes you had on the faulty card. Quoting from TfL: Faulty Oyster card If your Oyster card doesn't work when you touch it on a yellow card reader, it may be faulty. You'll need to get a ...

The Caravanistan guide that you cite describes getting from Baku to Alat but it is not too hard to backtrack: from Alat port take a minibus / taxi to the bus stop from there take bus 195 to Baku Looking at google maps, this seems to be the Alat port to me. You are looking for transportation from the port to the bus stop where the 195 will take you to ...

It's quite common for none of the validation machines to be working. Officially, you must seek out the train conductor immediately upon boarding and have your ticket validated. It isn't sufficient to write on the ticket yourself. Source: ...

Shared mini-vans, song theaws, etc are not allowed to pick up from the airport. Passenger pick up is restricted to taxis, airport limousines and tour buses. So anything the ferry company can arrange will be by taxi or private transfer. The same rules would apply to any other tour company offering tickets on the ferry. Song theaws and shared mini-vans are ...

I recommend checking out the below links. Hopefully these will tell you what you need to know. You may need to use the Google Translate tool on link 1, but if you know the name of the service you may be fine. Link 1: ...

Checking a couple of TOCs, including Southeastern Railway and ThamesLink there seems to be a general exemption with identical wording: Delay Repay is a national scheme train companies use to compensate passengers for delays. You can claim compensation if you're delayed by more than 30 minutes when you travel with us (except when delays are caused ...
