Train segments are handled differently to airline segments, and the implications for skipped segments are slightly different. Unlike air segments, the airline has no real way of knowing if you actually boarded the train, only that you picked up the tickets. So as long as you pickup your train tickets (not just your boarding passes!) at Schiphol then your ...

It appears that yes, it would work. Or at least it worked in this particular scenario. Jordan Axani and Elizabeth Gallagher return from round the world trip His call was answered and another Elizabeth Gallagher agreed to go on the "once-in-a-lifetime" trip, meeting him for the first time in the departure lounge on December 21. Now the pair are ...

Are there any tricks to get one quickly? There used to be many tricks available online but I think it's not worth looking at them now because lately I have had very good experiences while booking Tatkal tickets at IRCTC. I have heard the same from many of my friends. I mean the site has improved a lot so I don't think you will need any complicated ...

You can skip the train ride after the flights, but not the other way around. For example, KLM sells flight tickets starting from a train station in Belgium, where you have to check-in in Belgium already, therefore you cannot just show up in Amsterdam and try to board on the plane. It may still be possible somehow, but it's not guaranteed, hence not ...

Yes, you can try to get a refund. Based on TFL's site: If you have a valid Travelcard or Bus & Tram Pass on your Oyster card and leave it at home or temporarily mislay it, we will consider giving you a refund. You must provide original tickets or receipts for the fares you paid on the day and we will refund you the pro rata day value of your ...

Mixed fare class bookings are generally not possible online. To be a little more precise, most engines will happily compose the cheapest tickets from mixed fare classes, but do not give you fine-grained control over individual segments. See also Pricing and booking mixed-class fares, with economy & premium economy combined?, which is about essentially ...

I'm assuming that the Chiswell street is the one in central London. With a postcode of EC1Y 4SA or similar The best option would be the Thameslink rail service from Gatwick to Farringdon station, and then transfer to the underground for a short journey to Moorgate or Barbican, depending on which end of the street you want. There will then be a 3 or 4 min ...

The ones I've seen work on a scratch-off method and apparently lack a magnetic stripe, so I think you'd be lining up to show it to the guy in the booth. Day Passes are printed on card paper; Weekly Passes and Metropasses have a magnetic strip for automatic turnstiles and so, like tokens, work at all subway/RT station entrances whether staffed or not. On ...

The IRCTC Magic Autofill Google Chrome extension will save you precious time while booking. Here's a video explaining how it works: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eYh3s2tRYnY I have used it thrice and it works like a charm. Save precious seconds.

Not without getting a ticket to cover your journey. In food terms, it'd be like paying for 6 meals and just taking the 7th. It's not allowed. Similarly, if your ticket is valid from A to B, continuing on to C is NOT on the ticket's terms. You might get away with it if you stayed on, and played dumb ("oh I fell asleep and missed my stop") but if there's ...

You do not get a receipt by default from Virgin for changes made over the phone. Having done this myself a few times (largely because we frequently travel with a dog, so everything has to be done over the phone), you will receive the initial information and ticket when booking over the phone but any further updates and charges will generally be updated in ...

It's possible to pick a more expensive fare, for example if you want more flexibility or frequent flyer miles. By default, most airline websites will show the cheapest fare first but allow the user to pick a more flexible fare if they wish. Online travel agents and other third parties might not always offer this functionality but there is no guarantee that ...

There's no problem at all with this. You're booking, and taking, all your flights. You're using all your returns, the airline is not going to care. No links or references I'm afraid, but I've done basically this without the cruises. When I relocated from the UK to Asia for work I ended up, for various reasons with a one-way ticket to the back to the UK. To ...

Yellow SNCF Self-service Machines You should be able to print an e-ticket reminder using one of the SNCF self-service machines (the yellow ones) you can find in most stations. All you need is the card you used to book/purchase the ticket. This SNCF documentation page (in French) explains how. Here is the equivalent page in English, which is much less ...

Your fare class is a 2nd tier factor for upgrades, not a primary one. Airlines first look at your elite level status. They then rank their top tier flyers by the fare class. They then go the next elite level down and the same. So forth until they reach the non-elite flyers. It is not 100% cut and dry, as gold elite flyer on a full Y fare might get ...

You do not need a return ticket, as long as you can show a proof (e.g., letter) that says come and collect your residency card; In case the staff ask you about the intent of your trip to Denmark.

No, the Go Card is not valid in Cairns. As you quote yourself, the Go Card is only valid for transport in areas managed by TransLink in South East Queensland, and as detailed by TransLink these are roughly bounded by the Sunshine and Gold Coasts.
