comment Who pays for the return ticket when a country refuses entry?
'No country requires a passport to leave the country' while I can't comment on what would happen if you don't have your passport, there are a lot of countries that do have 'exit immigration', including Australia, New Zealand, Russia, Singapore, etc.

comment From whom can I buy travel insurance if I don't “live” anywhere?
Yeah, insurance requiring a country of residence is really annoying. Especially when they define it as 6 months in a year.

I've used World Nomads before, and I recall that the wording said Citizen or Resident. At least for NZ.

comment Longest possible single-fare journey in London Fare Zone 2?
@user2002 yes you're right. I misinterpreted the fare price, since I assumed £4.30 was too expensive for a zone 2 only fare. Damn those paper tickets are a rip off.

@Grzenio the time limit depends on the time of day and day of the week. See table here: oyster-rail.org.uk/maximum-journey-times

comment How do I find out whether I am allowed to / have to disembark from a flight that transits at an intermediary airport?
@AnkurBanerjee I don't know of a way, but perhaps those at FlyerTalk might have more of an idea.

Having one boarding pass is no indication that you can stay on-board. I've had stopovers with AirNZ and with Emirates where my ticket and boarding pass indicate a direct flight (e.g. LHR->AKL and DXB->AKL) but we have a stopover (LAX and SYD respectively). It's the same physical plane, and you have the same seat the whole way, but you're forced to disembark for the 1-2hr stopover while they clean the plane. In the US you even need to clear immigration!

comment Is it possible to change from an Air New Zealand flight to a BA flight in Beijing without going through customs?
Also see this thread on flyertalk: flyertalk.com/forum/air-new-zealand-air-points/… where people had different experiences when going through LHR. So ring AirNZ and check!
