comment Best location for car rental in to the Peak District coming from London?
Stoke-on-Trent ended up being the winner for us, as it both had a Europcar venue and it was open on Sundays. It was a very easy (and picturesque) drive out there. Many thanks to @Gagravarr for the suggestion!

comment Will the traffic and parking be easier in York on a week day or a weekend?
The Park and Ride information was brilliant. It was very easy to drop off the main road right into a Park and Ride and then take the bus directly into the city. It also means you can catch the bus back to your park at numerous stops inside the city itself.

comment How long does it take to get from Gare du Nord to the Palace of Versailles, by public transport?
For the record we chose option B and it was very straightforward. Fewer changes leaves fewer chances for things to go wrong, plus it also saves you a few minutes walk. :)

If there's a preference for a particular brand, it's likely that brand isn't going to be available in Australia.

comment Oat Bran in Sealed Canisters
I've brought through food at least a dozen times and have never had it confiscated. They may apply different levels of strictness for different nationalities (Australian here), but as I alluded to in my answer I suspect it may vary by initiating countries. We've brought our's in from SA, North America, NZ, Singapore, Vietnam and Europe in the last five years, but there's obviously fair swathes of the globe unaccounted for.

Actually you no longer need to declare everything food-wise. They relaxed it a few years ago, so only it fits into some broad categories, e.g. unprocessed foods, honeys, dairy, etc. However if you want to be sure you're still better declaring it than not, simply because the categories can be quite vague.

comment Are there any package tours that run from Singapore via Malaysia to Siem Riep/Angkor Wat?
Because sometimes I just like to relax and let someone else deal with the travel planning. When we travel it's me doing the organizing and I find it quite stressful sometimes.
