Would you be travelling to the UK together, or would she be going there on her own?

This PDF shows the oyster vs non-oyster prices a little bit more clearly, I think

comment London public transport: Is it possible to buy a paper ticket for a single journey?
As per the TFL fares table, a zone 1 single on Oyster is £2.30, on a paper ticket is £4.80. Two journeys in your trip and you'll have saved the Oyster deposit!

comment Do I need to show proof I will be leaving UK when I enter (as an EU citizen)?
The Schengen rules don't require an online passport / ID card check, so Schengen guards can (and often do) just look at the passport then let you in. UK rules require a scan of EU passport and ID cards, which takes longer.

comment International flight - Changing airport and airline in New york
I'd suggest buying that ticket from a "bricks and mortar" travel agent, rather than an OTA (online travel agent). A proper travel agent can get it all on one ticket, which would mean you'd be protected against delays. If it's on two different tickets, then you'd be on your own

comment How can I get from Gatwick to Weston-super-mare?
What modes of transport are you open to? Hiring a car? Taxi? Train? Bus? Chartering a plane as far as Bristol?

comment French Schengen visa refused in India - what to do?
Could you post the exact text of the refusal? It looks like you haven't used the exact words, and those really matter!

comment Are British immigration officers permitted to require evidence of a relationship between passengers and their children?
@AndrewLazarus Most "formal" contracts just have one or two witnesses, no special qualifications required, generally anyone is fine as long as they're not a family member, and even then sometimes that's fine!

comment Are British immigration officers permitted to require evidence of a relationship between passengers and their children?
@AndrewLazarus What would you suggest for someone coming from a country that doesn't normally "do" notarization? I gather it's quite cheap to get in the USA, for example, but in other countries it can be insanely expensive because it's not normally done

comment Will getting a refund from an ESTA scam site cause me to be blacklisted from the US?
Did the site make clear (though quite possibly in small text) that all they were providing for their $16 was some sort of checking/forwarding service, or was it a complete scam pretending to be the US government with no "additional services" for their fee?

comment How can I find the canonical validity map/area for a UK train PlusBus ticket?
Specifically, if you go to the plusbus.info page and scroll about half way down, you'll see in the Additional Information section A Hitchin PLUSBUS ticket is valid for bus travel to Butterfield Business Park. Are the sites that fail to mention/include Butterfield Business Park failing because they're old, or was it once included but now removed? Without knowing where the canonical definition of the zone is, we can't tell which sites are correct and which ones are out of date!

What makes you think that the map on the plusbus hub site is correct though? Both the main PlusBus website and Intalink pages show it as in the zone, and the PlusBus website has a whole news entry about how the Butterfield zone is in the newly expanded area!

comment Airlines with the most Surfboard friendly baggage policy & fees pricing?
Is this in a general sense of "anywhere in the world"? Or are you planning to fly from/to somewhere in particular with your board?
