comment How to get from London Gatwick to Cambridge on public transport?
A taxi is considered public transport by some people but is not cheap. Personally I would not try to do the impossible and except that a night in a hotel near Gatwick is needed.

comment What are good holidays for a disabled adult and a small child?
The High Peak and Tissington Trails in the Peak District are very accessible, Parsley Hay Cycle Hire has "bikes" that are attached to the back of a wheelchair.

Think about saving the money on not going on holiday to get a powered chair- freedom is worth so much.

comment How can I make flying with a wheelchair or crutches easier?
checking in a wheelchair is a BIG risk, copying with a lost set of cloths is a lot easier then trying to get hold of a replacement wheelchair. Also more people touch a check-in char therefore more chance of it getting damaged.

comment Slightly illicit: felon traveling on a US passport; will I be refused entry to the UK?
@Calchas, I think it comes down to how effective the other checks are believed to be by the person you are trying to catch. So just by using 'behavioural observation' so you don't do the checks on most people, you may stop it working....

@Calchas, An example, when the UK police setup metal detectors at trains stations to find people with knife, hardly anyone is found due to the detectors sounding. However undercover officers find lots of people with knifes due to them trying to avoid the detector.

@Calchas, 'behavioural observation' works well but ONLY if it is not the main system in use. It is when people start to believe it can be used instead of other systems that it fails.

comment Cancelled UK visa on entry
I expect that not having a booked return ticket within a few weeks of arrival was a key issue. I am VERY glad that for once the UK boarder force is going a good job!

comment How much cash to carry for a conference in the Netherlands?
@Willeke, about £4 for the buy back see travelex.co.uk/services/buy-back-guarantee and travelmoney.moneysavingexpert.com/buy-back then about 0.5% when using my cash card in a ATM outside of the EU

I think this is the best option, as it is then THEIR problem if the couch gets stack in traphic and you miss your flight.
