I did (Kyoto)-Beijing-Moscow-(Stockholm) last december. In Russia we travelled mostly on domestic trains of various kinds (the Trans-Mongolian have some russian cars attached in Russia which allow domestic travel), using mostly "Kupe" 4-bed compartments. We made most planning and booking as we travelled. We used the RZD web booking at ...

@SpaceDog gives a decent answer, but I would like to argue that it's both possible and reasonable. If you're going to do the journey in installments, which it seems to me you're thinking of, your only option is not to travel on the trans-siberian (or trans-mongolian) only. There are plenty of train connections that travel parts of the long journey and it's ...

It certainly can be done -- is it reasonable, well that depends on your definition ... You're going to have two major issues here. Visas You likely need visas for the places you're visiting (Russia, Mongolia, China), and they will need proof of onwards travel. You'll likely have to get a specialist to help anyway and the overall visa validity is going ...

Yes, but you have to inform IR at least 24 hours in advance, otherwise you may lose your seat. See this answer: Boarding point change for an Indian rail reservation

In Lille, the trip count paradigm is used. According to this : http://www.transpole.fr/fr/pass-pass-et-tarifs/titres-occasionnels.aspx Single trip €1.50 10 trips €12.50 Short trip €0.80 (3 stops max, on subway and light rail only) Day pass €4 2-day pass €7.50 3-day pass €9.50 After 7pm evening pass €2 All fares allow transfers. Single trip and each trip ...

Unfortunately, you won't be able to get such discounts. Only students in Swedish universities or other eligible educational institutes can obtain such cards, and those are period cards for 30 or 90 days. If you are staying only for a short time in Stockholm(which is not immediately apparent from your question), you may take advantage of the visitor tickets ...

Last September I flew into Paris with a one-way ticket, and nobody said a thing. Later I re-entered France by bus from the UK, and wasn't asked anything, either. Spain and France are both part of the Schengen Area, and as such ought to have the same rules, so you shouldn't have any problem. But it's still possible you might be asked about your travel ...

No, If TC will find the seat is vacant from Hosur then He can give it to next waiting passengers. You need to change your Boarding point again.

Your friend probably simply meant another product, the “rail pass”: Travel alone or with others for the low price of only € 7.60 per trip. The Rail Pass takes you where and when you want to go. Discount pass: 10 journeys for € 76 in 2nd class To any destination in Belgium 1 or more passengers on one Rail Pass No restrictions for a year ...

First of all, if the station C is enroute station A and B, you can't take a ticket from A to C and use it in the way described even from a booking window. However, if the station B lies between stations A and C, and you want to travel from A to C, you can buy a ticket from A to C and then do two reservations of it. The first reservation would be combined ...

If an e-ticket consists of partially confirmed and partially wait list, all the names present on the E-Ticket are added on the reservation chart and you can travel since the Ticket will be considered valid during the journey. For confirmation, you can visit the following section of IRCTC website: https://www.irctc.co.in/beta_htmls/Waitlisted_E-Ticket.html ...

Any waitlisted seat on e-ticket are cancelled as soon as the chart is prepated. And the 100% ticket amount for the waitlisted seat is refund to the account that was charged. If you travel with such an e-ticket, you will be considered travelling without ticket and you will be fined. You still have a long time for the ticket to confirm however my experience ...

Check the transit system website it has been fully updated. You have all fares in each line page, plus a route planner (accessible from "home" page or "find your route" page). This website also works for Menorca island.

Contrary to your statement, you can add the number during the booking process. When you book from SNCB you can tick Loyalty cards. In the second step you can then add the Eurostar Frequent Traveller number: I know this doesn't help you anymore since you already booked it, but this is how you can add your frequent traveller number.

The airlines track the number of on time departures (and arrivals). It is a key metric both within management and to some of the public picking an airline. One way to increase the chances of an on time departure is to get everyone to the gate earlier than really needed. Arriving on time is closely related to departing on time because at busy airports ...

Taipei to Keelung is effectively a suburban service, there are trains every 15-20 minutes and reservations are not required (or even possible for most trains?). And even for long-distance trains, advance reservations are generally not necessary, unless you're traveling at peak season (eg. Chinese New Year) or on some special train (eg. the Alishan Mountain ...

Leaving aside the question of round trip versus one-way fares, there are some potential disadvantages to booking your outbound and return flights on separate one-way tickets as opposed to a single round-trip (aka return) ticket— unless all tickets happen to be fully flexible, fully refundable, full-fare tickets, which you won't be buying if you care at all ...

There's generally only one major disadvantage to booking two one-way tickets in situations like this - Change/Cancellation fees! If for some reason you have to cancel your trip, instead of paying a single cancellation fee you'll have to pay two - one to each airline - and odds are that each fee will be the same as the single fee would have been so in effect ...
