As @greyshade commented, I don't know what you might be worried about. I've bought tickets for parents, kids, boyfriend and they all worked fine. Admittedly, those were all domestic flights, but I've had international tickets purchased for me by my employer. Definitely try to access the ticket record via the confirmation number on the British Airways site ...

Paris Visite is mostly a tourist trap. It only comes in zones 1–3 or zones 1–5, while all major tourist attractions are in zone 1 except for the Versailles Palace which is in zone 4, and Orly airport is in zone 4, Roissy airport is in zone 5, so most tourists will want the more expensive zones 1–5 pass. The Parc des Expositions in Villepinte is in zone 4, ...

The Parc des expositions near the porte de Versailles is served by the métro, so you can go there with a zone 1 ticket. Most tourists attractions would be in zone 1 too. Except if you planned something else, you only really need to get out of zone 1 to go to Versailles or to the airport. Even assuming a round-trip to Versailles and a trip to and from the ...

It depends on the airline and your port of departure; because these checks are done at the gate and at most airports, gate employees are contractors and not airline employees. Although one time a few years ago I remember while departing Newark the INS was checking boarding passes on the jetway, which was weird. I have had similar problems, because I have a ...

This answer is more of a general one, and it can be different for Hong-Kong. But generally, you are taking a huge risk but it is still permitted. If you have only one ticket, then you should be totally fine. Airline will take care of your baggage if any, and if the first flight was delayed, they will compensate you and/or arrange alternative flights ...

To answer the second part of the question ("is it cheaper/possible to get an open return?"), the answer is no. In Germany, it is very uncommon that open returns are cheaper. Even buying a non-open return ticket will only lead to lower cost in very few cases. Note that as neo wrote, you will probably take the bus first, and as the bus and the train are ...

According to the website of the local transport association VRR a single trip costs 16,50€ (just enter the trip into the search mask and click the "E" button to see the price). You can buy the ticket at the station. There is no open return ticket (but if you want to travel on the same day, or more often there are cheaper options, see that website). If you ...

First, understand that you're not the normal customer and airlines really aren't set up to serve your particular needs well; they've oriented themselves towards the majority. It looks like your options are: buy a no-change fee fare. Typically, this will cost two or three times the cheapest fare, or even two or three times [cheapest fare plus one change ...

If you opted for a web check-in when you did your ticket purchasing, then you MUST come to the airport with a printed boarding pass of the web check-in. I am talking about coming with the actual paper print. I've just flew from Sofia to Tel Aviv yesterday and I had to pay a 35 Euros fee.

On voyages-sncf, the standard booking tool does not provide a field for your "Code Avantage". However, if you go for advanced search, you will find, in the section for the passenger details, a "Promotional Code" field appearing. I know it is not straight forward.

If you go to the voyages-sncf webpage, you'll see there's a field called Code avantage. Just type your code in, and the associated discount should be applied.

It should be instant. Source: Italian and booked hundreds of trains (two yesterday). Anyway, you only need the Booking Code (PNR) in order to board the train and that should also be shown during the last step of the booking process, a page that the Trenitalia site suggests to print. You can also log in and go in the customer area. At the bottom of the ...

History. When the railways were first built in the 1840s parliament wouldn't allow them to build in the city center. The underground was the solution for how to get between one station and another (as well as how to commute in London). So historically through tickets between different companies using different main London terminii included the connecting ...

It's very likely that the only recourse you have here is to contact them, give them the time, date and details of what happened, and you may get an apology or some cash back. Maybe. They're contactable both by phone, and by email on their site: (+33) 03 20 40 40 40 (local call rate) Mondays to Fridays, from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., and Saturdays, from 9 a.m. to ...

There may be a barrier to doing the purchases online using your existing account But as it says on this page http://www.16-25railcard.co.uk/eligibility-benefits/eligibility/ You can purchase whilst 24. My recommendation would be (and what I did when I was a bit younger) to make the purchase in person at a railway station. And to purchase it as if it ...

Yes you can do that, but you need to create a new account. From the FAQ: Providing the expiry date of your Railcard is within 30 days you will be able to renew it. Just log back into your account. You can renew your Railcard if it is due to expire before your 26th birthday. ... ... You will not be able to renew a Railcard if its date of issue ...

The exact rules will actually vary slightly depending on the city pairs. On the Malaysia Airlines website, on the Review Your Itinerary and Price page there's a small link at the top for View Fare Rules. You can use that to check exactly what the rules would be for an given ticket you were thinking of buying As a general rule though, mhbasic is the least ...

As was explained in the comments: The way that all the airline booking systems work, it is not possible to have people on different booking (fare) classes on the same ticket. If you have two people on the same flights in the same booking classes, it's fine. If you have two people on the same flights but different booking classes (could be business and ...

Yes you can, but it's almost never a good idea, so you have to have a really good reason to try it. Here are the problems As Vagish pointed out, if there is any delay on your incoming flight, you will miss your connection and the second air line will treat this as your fault. Most will charge you a change fee plus potentially any difference in ticket ...

You can book two separate tickets for two separate flights. However if one flight is delayed and you miss the other you may not be re booked onto the next flight without paying a fee. Most major airlines will rebook you on for free if they ticketed both parts of the journey. So it is better to see if you can get one airline to ticket the whole journey, this ...

According to cheapair.com, it's 54 days in advance. At least in 2013 it was. Quoting the article, [They] monitored 4,191,533 trips. For each trip – that is, a flight from city A to city B on a specific date with a specific trip length– we looked at prospective fares over about a 10½ month booking window, ranging from 320 days in advance, to 1 day in ...

I am not a lawyer. That being said, if your friend is a legal driver in India, and has an Indian driver's license, is over 18, and was driving the type of vehicle she is licensed to drive, then India is listed in Appendix C. She should have been a legal driver in Massachusetts. If there was no other infraction noted on the ticket, other than not having a ...

A traffic ticket lawyer is probably the best bet. They can be in court for you if they have to be. The fees are often not actually too much but it may still be more expensive than just paying the fine. http://www.avvo.com/speeding-traffic-ticket-lawyer/ma.html You may also request a court date, once assigned write a letter to the prosecuting attorney and ...

I contacted East Coast directly and below is the response: If a Railcard cannot be produced at the time of purchase or at any ticket examination then the full undiscounted fare will be payable as if no ticket or Railcard were held. In addition to this, a valid Railcard must be held for the full duration of both the outward and return portions of period ...
