Since this question had been first posted and answered there have been a few new developments in the long term rental space. So if you decide that you need a car for 1-6 months it may be better to use long term rentals instead of buying a car. For example: Relay Rides - on this site you can rent a car from a private party although the selection may not ...

There's an entire wiki dedicated to this exact question! http://prepaid-data-sim-card.wikia.com/ I'm marking this as a community wiki-answer in case anyone wants to dig into the pretty significant amount of work required to expand this answer with rates and options available for the US. :-)

Weirdly I thought we had this question, but the only question seems to be in relation to Canada in North America... Yes, you can. I've done so the last two years, and intend doing this again in June/July this year. Which company you use depends on your requirements and the deals, of course, but I just went into a couple and asked what they had, and then ...

It's unclear what you are asking. The FAA tracks about 40,000 regular flights per day (150,000 including freight, military, private planes, etc.). If we estimate that about a quarter of those international, you are looking at 10,000 flights. Each flight has 20+ fare classes so the total number of quotable prices significantly exceeds 100,000 and that's for ...

Weather: The hot season for Zion and Moab begins in May. By June, you can expect daily highs in the mid-90s F (30 C) and overnight lows around 60 F (15 C). Bryce is at a much higher elevation, so high temperatures will typically be around 75 F (23 C) and overnight lows around 45 F (7 C). In all three locations, you can expect dry weather and cloudless ...

How much stuff do you have? You will not be able to move personal effects (term customs uses for your stuff) between countries without a residence visa. If you show up at the Peace Bridge border crossing with a rented truck they will deny you entry as it looks like you are moving down there (which you are). Note that the rented truck is no problem at all, ...

You are not going to get a stamp on your new passport, because you didn't use that passport to enter. The stamp is just a one-time record; you cannot replace it. Usually, the thing that matters for a foreigner to be able to stay in the U.S. is the I-94, which documents their status and duration of stay. For people entering since mid-2013 by air or sea, the ...

I have used sites like Kayak.com you can navigate around and see where you want to go. This will scan multiple travel sights and airlines at once so you can compare.

Yes, unfortunatly you must provide some sort of address. It sucks

I've crossed the USA from New york to San Francisco in a motorhome a couple of times. I went throgh arizona, vegas, texas...well it was long way! Basically you cannot stop and sleep everywhere and less in a gas station. We did it but you might be visited by some police officer in the middle of the night asking you why you are there. What I would suggest is ...

In the US, this sort of vehicle is known as an RV, or recreational vehicle. You are allowed to drive them on a category B licence from the EU, though you may need to be 21 years old. (You will need a BE licence if you want to drive a car or light pickup truck with a trailer attached.) You will also need your International Driving Permit. It's not usually ...

In my experience of travelling to the USA on an ESTA Visa from Europe you are asked you to write the address that you will be staying your first night in the USA, be it a hotel, friends house or family residence on the customs and border protection form. The immigration officer asks to see this form and stamps it. You are then let into the country and hand ...

I don't think its a requirement to book hotel in advance but you can check the details over http://germany.usembassy.gov/visa/vwp/ But, of course, booking a hotel in advance would you the trouble your friend had. :-)

"Transit (C) visas are nonimmigrant visas for persons traveling in immediate and continuous transit through the United States enroute to another country" "A foreign citizen whose layover in the United States is for a primary purpose other than to transit, for example to visit friends or sightsee, requires a visitor (B) visa." Ref: ...

The trip is now (successfully) over, here is the summary. Crossing the border via bus (Greyhound) is not a problem, since everybody has to go through customs (including the driver). I had an ESTA form, but it wasn't really necessary since there were only ~10 people on the bus and it was early in the morning. We were the only ones at the border and the whole ...

Dublin Airport is one of the rare European airports without an airside international transit area (with a minor exception that doesn't apply here). Everyone arriving at the airport from another country must clear Irish immigration before continuing onward. For this reason, anyone passing through here must either have a transit or short-stay visa or be ...

It doesn't matter where you're from. If you've a 10 year tourist/visit visa for US, its probably multiple entry visa & you can visit US anytime you want.

When you preclear US customs at Halifax Stanfield you will not need to go through customs again when reaching the United States. You arrive at a domestic terminal in the US rather than an international terminal and can proceed directly to your next flight. All you need to do is to make sure the airline checks your bags through to TPA, which they will do if ...

Your visa can be used throughout its validity period, unless cancelled or revoked. Hence you will be able to enter the USA on your current B-1/B-2 visa since it is hasn't expired yet. Moreover, the visa remains valid until it expires (ha, nice tautology). This is true regardless if it is contained in an invalid/expired passport. All you need to do is make ...

It may be wise to just take the big hit on a business flight Boston-Barcelona return, then use budget carriers to travel within Europe such as Easyjet or Ryanair. E.g. BOS-BCN, BCN-VCE, VCE-BCN, BCN-BOS You will only have to book 2 return flights which could be cheaper than individual flights. I apologize if this is does not coincide with your schedule.

No. The 90 days do not pause in Canada, Mexico, or nearby islands. Source (Ctrl+F, "Trips to Canada, Mexico, or nearby Islands." When you come back to the US, your leave-by date is the same actual date as it was when you first entered the US; your whole trip, from when you first enter the US until you last leave the US, must be at most 90 days unless you ...

On a trip like this, unless you have a really good reason not to do so, book a round trip instead of a multi city and fly the European section with a European airline. In case, book a BOS-BCN and a BCN-VCE roundtrip. You might find substantial savings. Or you might not but it worths a try. Use Skyscanner for the European leg, it knows about the low cost ...

It's not something we could know without knowing your dates and flights. But yes, it can happen, you'll just need to investigate. Sometimes the sum of segments can be less than the total price. ALso, do you have to use Delta? There are many trans-Atlantic airlines, consider an aggregate site like kayak which provides the ability to find flights with mixed ...

Not quite sure what the question is. You could book a tourist trip to the USA and ask for a visa for that. If you want to wait till April 20th after you get the ticket you need to check the wait times to get a visa interview appointment and the processing time. I checked for Chennai and it's a week to appointment and one working day to get a visa. Delhi ...

In most cases the immigration officers do not know where you come from when you show up at their desk, as people coming in on several flights arrive at once. Besides, visa do not include prescribed flight routes, you could have found a better deal with an airline that goes through Pakistan which is a very common thing. So, no, it does not matter as long as ...

Until about 5 years ago it was possible to have this plastic wrapping service done at LAX. Now you can't have the service done! LAX and SFO were the only American airports that I ever saw plastic wrap being done in. I have tried buying a big roll of the plastic wrap that moving companies sell to wrap their furniture in. It is very difficult to wrap your own ...

Territorial limitations are listed in the visible region of the Schengen visa (as opposed to the machine readable region). For your specific question: "is this meaning that i cannot go to estonia (not that i plan) or that i can go?!", the answer is NO. A restriction against Estonia (issued by a Spanish consulate) would look like... ESTADOS SCHENGEN (-EE) ...

In general, if you're in a place that also sells drinks and you're using vouchers, etc then tip as you would if you'd paid. So a dollar or two per drink depending on price and place. Same goes for discounts and other freebies like a 2 for 1 deal -- although you could choose to tip more up front. Obviously if the staff just decide to give you a freebie then ...

The visa validity is what determines the length of your stay. If your visa is valid till 24 Jun then you can stay inside Schengen till that date, period. Edit: I am wrong, some visas do have a specified length of stay, see my comment on @GayotFow's answer. While it is impossible to answer the other half with surety without seeing the visa, I have some ...

While you do not need an ESTA, you can get one. Last time I crossed a Canada/US border, by car (no need of ESTA either), the border agent asked me if I had an ESTA. When I said I thought I did not need one, he told me the process would be faster. But most importantly, there is a priori no reason you will take much more time than most other travellers. As ...

Your U.S. visa will not let you visit Canada or any European countries. The only country besides the U.S. that it will allow you to visit is Mexico. (Possibly some Caribbean countries too, not sure.)

While it doesn’t specify if it must be fully charged TSA said: As the traveling public knows, all electronic devices are screened by security officers.

While Jonas' answer is indeed the legal situation but note: there is no penalty for breaking this particular law and more importantly, no US citizen can be denied entry to the USA if said person can prove citizenship. This is more generic than the USA, this is one of the fundamental meanings of citizenship. A birth certificate is a good start, the more IDs ...

There are Drive Away services that match drivers with vehicles that need to be driven to a specified destination. A quick web search for "drive away services" will turn up number of these companies. These services usually don't charge rental fees, you just fill up the gas as you go. Most do require some sort of security, such as a cash deposit or credit ...

No, you don't have to do so. The official line, from the CBP FAQ page on the VWP and ESTA: Q: Can prospective travelers apply for an ESTA without specific travel plans if they want to be able to travel to the United States later on short notice? A: Yes. VWP travelers are not required to have specific plans to travel to the United States ...

In my personal experience no. I've been to the US three times staying in different locations without altering the address. Although full disclosure, I'm not sure if that's ok, it is my personal experience.

You can't be denied a passport simply because you're forgetful, but you might be denied expedited processing. Somewhere, an officer is wondering what happened to all those passports you lost, and whether they might have been stolen or misused. The reasons why one might be denied a US passport include: Failing to fill out the application completely Failing ...

If possible, drop the packaging, and carry it in the the cabin-luggage/side-bag. You are out-of-trouble. In very rare case, even if you questioned, say it is for personal usage. You are good to go.

Truck stop is also Homeland Security, they aren't just looking for overloaded trucks. Be smart, pull thru the weigh station and save yourself a roadside inspection 10 miles down the road.

One option I recently found out about is Shipito. It is a company that offers a USA address (in fact it has a few adresses for you to choose from) for shipping things you buy online. They can hold your stuff for up to 90 days and they will charge you 1 dollar (+ shipping costs) to deliver your goods anywhere in the world. I assume they can deliver in any ...

A little confused as I can't find a current flight via Reno connecting Hnl to xna. http://www.flyxna.com/airlines-flights/airlines/ However assuming that it is actually via Las Vegas. I looked at the actual operating airlines, so American flights could actually be operated by Envoy air or Mesa Air branded as American eagle, and the United flights as ...

Although United and American probably do have an interline baggage agreement (most of the larger IATA members do), and are probably capable legally and operationally of transferring bags directly, it is up to the discretion of each airline whether or not to do so. And most US carriers have been increasingly reluctant to do so over the last few years as they ...

No, you can not extend your stay, unless it is some sort of emergency like hospitalization, canceled or delayed flight for more than 24 hours, etc help.cbp.gov ESTA is usually granted for 2 years or until your passport expires (whichever comes earlier), so depending on when yours started it is possible, that you may not have to apply again help.cbp.gov ...

Because United and American do not have Interline Agreements in place. Interline agreements address the issues of transfering passenger data from one airline to the next, which in turn effects the transfer of baggage. If two airlines do not have an agreement, then bags will have to be claimed and then rechecked with the next airline. The lack of interline ...

That's perfectly legal. You have a flight out of Canada and you only stay 4 days. Can't see a problem. Except... be very careful on flying the last day of your allowed stay because if there's a problem with your flight to Toronto and you are rebooked on a flight on the next day then you will get an overstay and lose your VWP rights for life and will need to ...

While the phrase "transit" is not clarified in the ESTA Online help it is amply clarified on the transit visa page: A passenger embarking from a foreign port on a cruise ship or other vessel which is proceeding to another country, other than the United States, but during the course of the journey, the vessel makes port in the United States with no ...

Both UPS and FedEX have a "hold at depot" option. You put your name on the package but their address plus "c/o UPS hold at depot". The downside is the depots are usually in industrial parks near the airport with a complete lack of public transportation. You will need a car to go get it. The delivery/pickup window is also limited - after 3-4 days they will ...

When I needed something mailed in the US while travelling, I organised ahead with a hostel in Los Angeles. We were going to stay there anyway, and you might find they want you to book a night if you're going to collect mail from them, but give a hostel a call and see if they'll accept mail on your behalf - I've done it in several countries now with no ...
