comment Lost baggage, airline doesn't do anything
I wouldn't call it normal, I would call it common though. The fact that the EU made legislation to protect passengers, kind of proofs that airlines not always have normal behaviour.

I wanted to suggest the EU passengers rights: europa.eu/youreurope/citizens/travel/passenger-rights/air/… But that only applies on flight to and from the EU

comment Can my brother photograph my wedding as a tourist?
@jonathanReez Only in Dutch (vlaanderen.be/nl/bouwen-wonen-en-energie/bouwen-en-verbouwen/…;. It stipulates that family up until second degree ((grand)parents and (grant)children) are allowed to help and the up until the fourth degree (cousins) are tolerated. "Vrienden mogen wettelijk gesproken niet komen helpen" Friends legally aren't allowed to help.

comment Can my brother photograph my wedding as a tourist?
I have seen people making pictures in the zoo with professional gear, simply because they just started a digital photo course. You could use that excuse. Then again, it is a really good question, since bureaucracy can be mad at times. In Belgium, for example, it is considered tax fraud if your friends help you in painting your house.

comment Car rental deposit €730 for 24h in a small car?
@pnuts is this your opinion, or do you have some background in car rental and you know for a fact this question isn't answerable?

Also except for rentals at airport, I have never found a rental company that is willing to give really full coverage insurance.

Or find a credit card that covers your rental insurance. They exist (UK/US), unfortunately not in the country I live in.

comment How do custom officers determine if the imported goods of a passenger are old or newly bought?
@AleksG I guess when you pay duty, you get a receipt for it. So bring the receipt with you

comment Re-applying a refused visa application
You can always try. Maybe try another country since Belgium has by far the highest refusal rates in Schengen: ec.europa.eu/dgs/home-affairs/what-we-do/policies/…

comment What neighborhoods in Paris are the least commercialized?
@pnuts but that is hard to answer. Then all neighbourhoods apply, even the surrounding areas (banlieu) apply.

comment How to do online payment in Ireland with french credit card?
@JouniSirén that might be in theory, the explanation I got from my bank is that it is primarily because of fraud protection

comment How to do online payment in Ireland with french credit card?
@JouniSirén It makes sense that you can buy services and physical products online, because you prob. had a delivery address. I am pretty sure that an IP case solely based on foreign credit card payments would not hold in court, especially where there is a single market (Ireland/France). IP rights are typically dealt with on the network address level and not on the credit card level.

Maybe you can also buy a prepaid Irish credit card for these purposes, but be cautious for the fees with prepaid credit cards.

comment Is there a car-rental scheme that works worldwide?
@gagravarr I would love to, but I have been searching for quite a while and it seems that those insurances are more common in us/uk then where I live.
