comment What will happen if I cancel the credit card with which I booked a flight?
@emmalgale When booking online with British Airways, you're asked if the person making the booking is the one travelling, if you tick "different person" you won't have to show a card at checkin. If you say "same person", you may (but by no means always) have to. I'd say I probably get asked for the card about 5-10% of the time with BA

From the British Airways checkin instructions If you have booked directly with British Airways, either through ba.com or a British Airways Telephone Sales office, and you paid with your debit/ credit card you must present that debit/ credit card at check-in. So, depends on exactly how you booked / paid for it

comment Which mazes in Europe are worth visiting with children?
@Venture2099 I'd say I've visited well over 2 dozen mazes in Europe, which is how I can feel confident saying there'll be hundreds of them. Some brilliant for adults and large children, some only of interest to very small ones. A question that would produce hundreds of answers (eg one answer for one or two mazes) is not a good fit for your format, sorry

comment Which mazes in Europe are worth visiting with children?
Given there are quite possibly hundreds of mazes in Europe suitable for at least some children, I fear this isn't a good fit (as it stands) for our Q&A format

comment Why do UK train tickets crossing London include the underground, but Paris ones don't for the metro?
@Bernhard And with Eurostar too, but it's still another ticket to buy, and isn't available on all trains arriving into Paris

comment Airside arrivals area at Heathrow T3
If you follow the signs for the underground, you'll stay inside the whole time. If you follow the signs for taxis or local buses, you'll exit the terminal at the front. Staying inside between plane and baggage claim is often a good thing :)

comment Send 1 overweight suitcase instead of 2 underweight?
@DavidRicherby But people don't sit at the very very back! "At the pointy end" is (I believe) a fairly well known euphemism for sitting in a premium class (first/business/as appropriate)

comment Is it possible to get a tentative flight itinerary to apply for Taiwan visa without paying?
Did you try asking a Travel Agent? Many (but not all) can put a hold on a flight and issue you a provisional itinerary based on that. (It would be only fair to then book the real flight with them when you confirm your plans)

comment Send 1 overweight suitcase instead of 2 underweight?
What class are you flying in? I've found that largely (but not always), the closer to the pointy end of the plane you're booked in, the less they enforce baggage rules. May help that you tend to get more baggage allowances anyway, so it's harder to exceed them anyway! But just an observation...

comment With a Lille Pass Pass smart ticket, what happens if the wrong ticket type is selected by the validator?
Nope, no confirmation, just a big green tick telling you what had just been picked! Difference was only about €10 between what I used and what I'd meant to, so not the end of the world, but it was annoying. (And being a Sunday, no-one around to speak to about it...)

comment Visa-free travel: no entry or exit stamp given between UK and French border?
EU nationals won't receive stamps when travelling between EU countries, just their passport / ID card checking, so it is somewhat of a special case
