You will probably not like my answer but I believe that Expedia is right. They hold no responsibility for you to be able to enter in a country. There is a simple reason for that. They don't have the capability to check whether you are allowed to enter a country with or without a visa and if you are entitled for such a visa in case one is required. This is ...

As a rule of thumb, visas are always your responsibility, not the travel agent's or the airline's responsibility. This includes finding out if there are stopovers that require a visa along the way, and Justfly sets this out in their T&C: As a traveler, you must know and understand the applicable legal requirements related to travel, including ...

Airlines will charge what they think customers will pay, and that price fluctuates over time and for various commercial factors, including demand, cost of supply and other factors. I often travel to the 3rd nearest airport (2 hours drive away) to save sometimes upwards of £1000 when taking the family on holiday. Always looking at nearby airports - both ...

Just back from my trip to Amsterdam / Brussels and I can share my experience. My Thalys ticket was not checked until the train had left Rotterdam. As a result, the earliest opportunity I had to disembark was Antwerp. Doubling back to Amsterdam from Antwerp took substantially more time, and was much more expensive. However, YMMV. It was not clear whether ...

As you state, the FAQ answers your question: This ticket needs to be printed at home and presented to the Stansted Express station or onboard staff to be scanned as a valid ticket for travel. In other words, if you present your phone with the ticket on, the inspector may tell you that your ticket is not valid, and you will have to pay for a full price ...

I've messaged the official Tallinja Facebook page (great customer service by the way!) and received the following reply: So the answer is yes, you can do that.

Having arrived at Malta airport February 1, 2016, there was a booth (I think towards the right hand side from Arrivals) where I was able to purchase a Tallinja card for €21 for 7-days. The booth also accepts Amex cards. This covers the whole of Malta and Gozo (Għawdex). Whether or not this can be topped-up I'm not sure.

There's no need to use a specific card at the self-service machines. See this question. In fact, although the confirmation email says "please take the card you used to make the purchase", the recent machines I have used (at least Virgin West Coast and Arriva Trains Wales) merely say "please insert a card for confirmation purposes" - they don't specify it ...

My understanding is that an Oxford-London Travelcard is valid for one journey from Oxford to London, as much travel as you like within London (Zones 1-6), then one journey back to Oxford. What you're trying to do is to use part of the return leg (Reading-Oxford) before you've used the outbound leg, which I think is against the terms of the ticket.

Can a travel agent book the fare? Yes they probably can. The likely reason you can not do it online is that fare (SYD-CPT) doesn't exist in their online system. So a travel agent will have to call and ask the fare desk to price the ticket out manually. You could possibly do the same by calling Qantas direct. There are so many possible airfare combos ...

Two responses, for depending on why you ask. If you ask because you want to know if it's legal, then yes, you can enter on a single way ticket. See the advice on this web page from the Australian High Commission in the UK that specifically references single vs. one way tickets. However, if you ask because you want to know if it's cost effective, then no, ...

Few options for you in situation : 1/ Call the airline directly. They might be able to make a phone booking that will allow bypassing this online booking issue. 2/ Use a 3rd party website to perform the booking that also won't have this kind of problem. I would really discourage you to input wrong details for the sole purpose of going through the booking ...

I'm sorry to hear about your travel woes but I would imagine they are in the right both legally and business ethically: https://www.expedia.com/p/info-other/legal.htm INTERNATIONAL TRAVEL You are responsible for ensuring that you meet foreign entry requirements and that your travel documents, such as passports and visas (transit, business, ...

I had managed to collect the ticket that I've bought from thetrainline.com using my Deutsche bank account card that has maestro abilities (not a credit card, i don't really think it's a true debit card too). The strange thing is that it isn't linked to my Paypal account that I've used to pay for my ticket. So I guess the machine only needed some sort of ...

The boarding pass will be fine, nobody will check for a e-ticket. (In fact, my last few easyjet bookings have them sending me no such thing, so not quite sure how you got one). Source: Travelled with Easyjet recently. Additional source, Easyjet website: Do I get a flight ticket from easyJet? easyJet is a ticketless airline. On completion of your ...

The cost is 2 Malaysian Ringits to get between terminals (source). Unfortunately, you can't buy the transfer tickets on their website, like the other journeys, you have to buy at the counter. If you have some left over Singapore money, you could go to a money exchange place and swap it (presumably there's a minimum), and use the remainder to buy a nasi ...

Use a credit card: there's no minimum, so yes, you can pay for that RM2 fare with your MasterCard. Cityliner also runs KLIA<->KLIA2 buses for RM1.50 a pop,and they might accept Singapore dollars at a 1:1 exchange rate; normally quite a bad deal, but if you don't have any use for your leftover S$, it's essentially "free".

There are many reasons for this: Airport charges vary greatly between hub and satellite airports. Competition is often a driver of prices, especially at a core hub airport like Heathrow. Routes may be restricted - they are especially so at large airports. If you are so lucky - you should always pick a satellite airport to start and end your journey. The ...

Delta has an app specifically designed for producing a machine readable boarding code, Spirit does not. Delta has programmed most of its scanners to read that app code, but not all. There are still airports where a paper boarding pass is issued by Delta. Spirit obviously hasn't upgraded its systems to use machine readable app codes. And so will continue ...

There is a local bus from Malpensa to Gallarate. It is operated by a company called S.A.C.O.. It has a bus stop at the north west side of Terminal 2, which is not at the same place as the other buses. S.A.C.O. bus stop at the north end of Malpensa terminal 2. These buses connect to the train station in Gallarate. In January 2016, I paid €1.80 and the ...

That is the bus company that provide direct transfer to Domodossola from Malpensa ( MXP ) airport : http://www.comazzibus.com/eng/index.php If the bus schedule meet your needs , I strongly suggest to get it , better then change multiple transportation .

The answer by blvdeer is partially correct in that it confirms the rule, but does not answer your question. The answer to your question is that if there is even one passenger who has a confirmed reservation in a ticket all the passengers in the same ticket can board the train and shall be provided seats as and when they become available. Partially ...
