comment My lost credit card was used to book a hotel room in my name
@NateEldredge With my cc company at least, closing the account is not tantamount to disputing a charge.

Can you "dispute the charge" through your (online) credit card account or customer service?

comment Documents necessary (and recommended) for first time travel to EU for US Citizen
Yes, that makes sense. Have never been asked a "document of finances" at any border yet.

comment Documents necessary (and recommended) for first time travel to EU for US Citizen
Thank you for the assurance. Such doubts arise in my mind since I always had to produce a "certificate of finances" or some such when I applied for a US F1 visa, a Canadian visitors visa and it was a recommended document for a Schengen D/Scientific visa. So, I thought there's no harm being too careful! :)

Will a self attested certificate of finances with my bank account details as an attachment do for "means of subsistence"?

comment Do I need an airport transit visa for layover in Germany?
Lufthansa has an interesting page with examples. Hope that helps. VFS Germany says "NO, you don't need an airport transit visa if you are travelling to US or Canada via Germany and have a valid Visa for the same. However, if you are travelling to any other country you will need to apply for a Transit Visa."

comment North-American chipless credit card in France
@MeNoTalk Good point on the "bounty on original question". Never thought of that. Should I delete this question if I were to do that (bounty on other question?)?

@Flimzy I am assuming that USD are next to worthless at magasins, restaurants, tabacs and boutiques at least until I have Euro?

comment North-American chipless credit card in France
@Flimzy But I am guessing that my chipless credit card will not work at automated ticket kiosks? Or am I wrong on that count as well?

These sound fantastic! Just out of curiosity, do any of these have vegetarian options?
