It all depends on what was required when the ticket was purchased. Based on experience with US based carriers and a couple of Canadian regional carriers, secondary IDs such as passport number, DOB, etc are never required at the time of purchase, but are only required prior to departure. As such there would be no "incriminating" proof that the Elizabeth ...

It's called an open-jaw flight/ticket, and you usually have to deal with it and buy two one-way tickets. Most bookings sites will allow multi-city options. For example, on Matrix Airfare Search, you can choose the multi-city option. Then you can specify which date ranges you want to take the A-B and C-A option. Sometimes it's cheaper, sometimes it's more ...

I found some answers at their website at How to check in for a flight?: They only have self-service kiosks in Riga: Currently available to our passengers travelling from Riga airport, self-check-in kiosks allow you to check in at the airport free of charge. Also, they do have a 10 EUR airport check-in fee, but that does not apply to "passengers ...

The most relevant documentation regarding this situation is the following vague statement in Ryanair's terms and conditions: 6.6 You must produce valid travel documentation matching the details on your Boarding Pass for all flights ... So the question is what Ryanair considers "valid travel documentation" and if the name in the travel document matches ...

Date and place of birth are commonly used for this purpose in other contexts (although even that is not always enough) but it comes down to what the airline in question required. Very often, nothing else than the name and credit card number are required (and can therefore ultimately be matched with the booking). Even the nationality is not always required. ...

If you really, really want to save every pound, then if you get an Oystercard (or have a contactless debit or credit card) and use only buses to get from Heathrow to Balham (you can do it in three bus journeys, taking a bit over two hours in total) you will be charged £4.40, the daily cap on bus fares. In general, if you want the cheapest way to get around ...

To get from Heathrow to Belham, you can take the bus to Victoria Station for £5.70 cash. Comparatively, you can take the train from Heathrow to Paddington for £21.00. People wanting to save time will take the train, which is about 15 - 20 minutes; the bus takes a lot longer. It's a close call between the two because you'll be fatigued and lagged after a ...

Checked with the travel agent, and the fee is per ticket - so, 70 EUR even if I change both the outbound and return dates.

Turns out that when I tweeted Jet Blue they were willing to work with me and change the name on the ticket to First Middle Last. This should solve my problem since First Middle Last is on my passport. I find it a bit odd these days that you have more luck getting help from Twitter instead of using the normal channels of your travel agent OR calling the ...

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 ...

If you totally want to maximise your budget then then the absolutely cheapest way is to walk. Heathrow to Balham, for example, is 15 miles - google maps says a bit under 5 hours, obviously it depends how fast you walk. Balham to Westminster is much shorter, of course. The advantage (apart from it being free) would be that you'd get a real feeling for the ...

You can use the Velocity Frequent Flyer (Virgin Australia's loyalty program) Status Earn Fare Class table to perform the conversion - https://www.velocityfrequentflyer.com/content/Info/StatusEarnFareClass/ In that table, you can see that T falls under Discount Economy which is the other name for Saver/Saver Lite. The table does not differentiate between ...

I can confirm one scenario where it makes difference - when you travel with kids. We used it this summer when travelling to Europe and it knocked off around $200 for the kids tickets. But not all airlines do it. But if you search e.g. on Kayak, there is under dropdown next to Search button this list of options: Adults 18-64 Seniors 65+ Youth 12-17 ...

Our website at http://www.skyscanner.net provides this functionality. You can do a flight search and choose "Airline combinations" in the results page filter. This lets you see results where several ticket bookings are required, also known as "non-protected transfers". Hope this helps.

Is an Oyster card the most cost-effective way, or buying paper tickets? Yes, it's worth it, in strictly financial terms. You always (or very nearly always anyway) get a (slightly) cheaper ticket price with the Oyster card than you do with paper tickets, and when your journey is over, you can turn in your Oyster card and receive a cash rebate for any ...

This travelcard is valid for all trams and buses (including the night buses) in Budapest and some close suburbs (including the airport), on the HÉV suburban lines within the city limits (a separate suburban network that's pretty much like the metro), as well as on the BKK ferry. It isn't valid on the main suburban trains (not operated by BKK) nor on the ...

The transfer ticket is basically two single tickets rolled in one, sold cheaper but with the restriction that the second trip must take place within 1½ hours. If you need to take a bus, then the metro, then a tram, that's a total of three tickets, which you can decompose as one transfer ticket (HUF 530) plus one single ticket (HUF 350, or HUF 300 if bought ...

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 ...
