comment Showering facilities at Kings Cross station - Where are they and what are they like?
@user568458 In the male area, there's only one shower room, only big enough for one person, and you get exclusive use of it for the duration of your shower. You lock the door when you go in using a toilet-style lock. They clean and lock it (key) afterwards. I assume it's basically the same in the womens

@chx Paddington also offers public paid-for showers, possibly because it too has a fair number of long distance services. St Pancras doesn't seem to, but it's a 2 minute walk to Kings Cross. Euston doesn't have public showers, but does apparently have free ones in the First Class lounge + available for Sleeper customers. Not sure about any others

comment Duty free when flying to two different EU countries with 2 litres of spirits?
@JonathanReez Why does it need to be a Schengen flight? Surely any EU flight would count, as they'd have the magic green bag tags? (Schengen is about immigration, not about customs)

comment Is there a map showing alternatives to London airports?
London City (LCY) is going to be impossible to beat for destinations it serves. As for Heathrow, I haven't found it too bad as a departing passenger lately (transit is a different matter...), and arrivals has generally been fine too. I'd take Heathrow on a bad day over Luton on a good day every time, almost the same for Stansted, so it's starting to feel a lot like personal preference here

comment Can I check into a European hotel without my passport?
Depends entirely on the country and their rules, so I fear this question is too broad. Pick one country of interest and ask for that

comment SIM card for travelling to Europe from India
You should be able to look up the prices for most common European PAYG sim cards online. What happens when you compare them to your Indian option?

comment Traveling to the U.S for 7 days in March with ESTA visa and making another trip to the U.S in June. Can I be denied entry?
@CMaster An ESTA is a huge way different from a visa. An ESTA gives you the permission to approach the USA by Air or Water. Most ESTA holders will then request entry under the US Visa Waiver Program, and then admitted under that. The ESTA has nothing to do with whether or not you're allowed into the USA, nor any rules governing that, those are all the Visa Waiver Program (or Visa). The ESTA is only about being able to travel to the US border

ESTA != visa - would he be entering under the Visa Waiver Program?

comment Would a non-business traveler ever benefit from collecting air miles, as compared to simply buying the cheapest ticket available?
With BA on short-haul flights, taxes and fees are capped at £17.50 each way. With many other airlines they aren't, which makes a big difference on how valuable they are. There are at least some airlines where the taxes and fees on a redemption ticket are the same as the cost of a cash ticket...

comment Would a non-business traveler ever benefit from collecting air miles, as compared to simply buying the cheapest ticket available?
I frequently take leisure flights with BA, booked with my own money. When I factor in the costs of getting to the LCC airports vs Heathrow, the costs of getting from far-off airports to the city, the faff of dealing with somewhere like Luton, the cost difference vanishes. Then BA gives Avios (+tier points), so I often book flights with them with my own hard-earnt cash!
