comment Northern Cyprus - way to visit and what problems can I have with Republic of Cyprus after that?
All regular international flights outside of Turkey are not nonstop; they require an intermediate landing at a Turkish airport. Ercan International Airport

comment Can I travel by road, from Greece to Italy, with only my Greek identity card?
Is this a "new" Greek ID card with latin characters or an "old" one with Greek characters only? You are fine with the former, but may have problems with the latter.

comment Bringing laptop with US keyboard layout back into the UK
I don't think there's any reason to worry over this. Recently I flew from the UK to the US and back with a laptop having a Hebrew layout and no one even bat an eyelid.

comment Will airlines compensate me if my entertainment system is not working?
Thomas Cook flight, Manchester - Orlando, we were informed that some seats had a malfunctioning entertainment system so they handed out an "apology letter" to all passengers and offered a complimentary drink on board due to the "inconvenience caused". Also, this issue caused a 45 min departure delay, but at least all passengers were compensated (including those that their system was working fine).

comment Public transport (Lynx buses) Orlando, FL - “fixed route” pass
So I can buy a "Fixed Route 7-Day Standard Pass" and use it across all aforementioned Links unlimited times, for 7 days. Is that right?

comment Breaking down with car during trip - multiple country breakdown service?
You have to mention where is this car licensed (Hungary, UK or other?) and what kind of car insurance it currently has and from which country.

comment Open Banking account in the US for a foreign traveler
When applying online for such a card, it requests a Social Security Number, on top of US address, so I don't think a foreign visitor could acquire such a card.

comment Late night taxi in Crete
25 euros is a decent price, given the distance from Chania airport to the town. All the best! Enjoy Crete! (Chania is much more picturesque than Heraklion :-))

comment Deposits policy for holiday accommodation in Spain
Thanks anyway. I decided to reject their policy and go for another option after all.

comment Trip in the south of Germany
It really depends how much you spend on (for example) the castles: some want to see every single item and read its tag, others just browse quickly. I haven't been to the Deutsches Museum. Muenchen in one day, probably is OK to see some few things. You can't do both Nuremberg and Bamberg in one day, choose one city only. And for the rest I have no experience. Hope this helps :)

comment Deposits policy for holiday accommodation in Spain
Through their official website I asked for availability and then exchanging emails with the owner. Not through booking.com or such.
