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 ...

Not sure if the "normal" flow you allow you to do this, but note the following items from the Heathrow shopping FAQ: Can items be transferred between terminals? If a product you would like to purchase is available at any terminal in Heathrow, we can arrange to have the product transferred to the terminal you are flying from, provided that the ...

I have never heard of a law or regulation that would require an airline to provide transit accommodations based on a scheduled connection (as opposed to a cancellation or other operational failure, for example). After all, you are the one choosing to accept the itinerary as given. But it is true that such accommodations are written into some fare rules on ...

You will pass through customs and immigration when you first land in Canada. There is also passport exit control when you leave Sweden. In London there is no customs and no immigration for international-to-international transit passengers, although you will go through a security screening.

The last rule refers to the yes and no boxes you have to tick, e.g. did you ever get deported. The transit checkbox is not part of the yes/no boxes. In fact, you don't even need to update the application at all while your esta is valid. So if nothing changed except the fact that you are there for a transit, then no, you don't need to apply again. The ...

If KLM allowed you to book this as a single itinerary rather than two separated tickets, then you are covered. If you miss the connection, they will have to find a solution for you with another flight. Then you need more to think if you are ready to be delayed if you miss the connection. In theory, 55 minutes should be enough but there is no room for any ...

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, ...

From my own experience, if things go reasonably well you are likely to get to your next connection in time. Sometimes airport/KLM staff waits in front of your flight to help you get to your connecting flight. Unfortunately, the same can't be said about your luggage. Schiphol seems to be particularly slow with handling luggage, so there is a much greater ...

I chose the sleeping pods to sleep for 5 hours! They were good but was disgusted that the price you pay doesn't include a blanket and a pillow! £8 for a blanket! We already paid £43 and thought we would get comfort. So if your thinking if the sleeping pod get a blanket and pillow off the plane because they put the air conditioning on so it's cold!!!!!

I ended up with in a similar situation in Abu Dhabi last year. An earlier delayed flight had resulted in me missing my connection. The airline wouldn't provide a hotel room because it was day time, but my body clock was saying it was the middle of the night and I didn't want to adjust to Gulf time. The airport is pretty spacious, or seemed so last May, ...

I can't find a Costa Rican source for this, but according to TIMATIC, it is possible to transit without a visa if the onward flight is within twelve hours of the arrival. Alternatively, the traveler is exuded from the visa requirement if she holds certain visas of other countries, including the EU. Her US visa won't help with this because it is a transit ...

I flew through Schiphol (from Kuala Lumpar) last year with 45 minutes transfer time. I managed to make the connecting flight with 20/15 minutes to go, however my bag did not make the flight. luckily, I was heading home and my bag was delivered to my house the same day. I found transferring from one gate to another quite frustrating due to the long walk ...

I had the same situation about one year ago. I had a layover in ORD for my trip from LHR to CUN and I had a valid ESTA. I just modified the application with the new flights information and 'TRANSIT' in the US address.

Let's leave aside the point that there is nowhere in the world where transiting through Canada is your only option for a flight to Vegas. When transiting to the US through Canada you are not required to clear Canadian customs or immigration. However it is made quite clear that you must comply with immigration and visa restrictions. This means you are not ...

The answer is maybe, depending oh the nature of your transit. According to the Emirates Visa Checker: Transit - United Arab Emirates (AE) Visa Visa required. TWOV (Transit Without Visa): Holders of confirmed onward tickets for a max. transit time of 24 hours. Visa is required for transit between Dubai International Airport (DXB) and ...

Like most countries, Brazil allows visa-free transit if you do not need to leave the international transit area of the airport. However, if you have booked separate tickets, then you have to go through immigration and customs in Brazil before checking in to your next flight. This visa can be issued to individuals whose final destination is another ...

Tom is correct in pointing out that your concern should be the visa application rather than the airline or immigration officers. The requirement is that your passport be valid for at least three months after your anticipated departure. If your passport validity is insufficient for your planned travel, you should get a new passport before making your visa ...

I would suggest to check with the Airline as some airlines (Ex. Emirates) does make arrangements as they are the official carrier of UAE an would most welcome any traveller to stay (as it's good for UAE's economy and promote tourism)

No. The baggage system is not designed to store luggage for this period. You should arrange to store your bag in a left-luggage facility. If you have concerns about customs controls for alcohol, pork, et c., there is a procedure whereby Dubai customs retains these items and return them to you when you leave the country again.

I made a connection of 55 mins OF VIE-AMS-DOH at AMS in Dec, 2015. First leg was 10 mins late, I was on last row, so last to deboard. No checked in luggage. As soon as I hit the ground, started running towards new gate. I used the priority immigration lane, then again ran. Made to boarding counter @ gate just 5 mins before they were going to close it. Both ...

This has happened to me before. I had two separate flights Bangkok->London through India, two different airlines and Mumbai I think. My belief was that I would be able to not leave the transit zone and just remain there until the next flight. When checking in in Thailand at the check in desk they noticed my lack of visa and said I can not proceed without ...
