comment Why does EasyJet require my ID details in advance?
@DCTLib Eurostar staff don't see your passport, and don't ask for it when booking. Heading from Europe to the UK, your passport is checked by French or Belgian immigration officers (Schengen exit) then immediately by British ones (UK juxtaposed entry), but never Eurostar

comment Can you get from London to the French Alps by train, with no/minimal changes?
@JoeBlow The Ski Eurostar is a single direct train from London to the French alps - you board in London, and stay on board all the way to Bourg / Aime / Moutiers, very civilised! The Swiss option is a change of trains in Lille Europe, often just cross-platform

comment On TGV (or other French long-distance trains), can you take the earlier/later train?
Why did you miss you train? If you missed the train due to other train related delays, then you're allowed to take a later train than booked no matter the ticket conditions

@JoeBlow The Swiss services are Eurostar London to Lille, then TGV Lyria from Lille via CDG and the LGV Interconnexion to avoid Paris

comment 14 hour layover in Incheon, how to spend the time?
Have you checked if your nationality allows you to enter South Korea without a visa? That'll make a big difference to what you can / can't do with the layover!

comment Applying for “Aufenthaltsbewilligung – Familiengemeinschaft” from within Austria
Also, it's possible that this would be better on the Expatriates site rather than here, as it's about moving for long term not a short visit

comment Queenstown, New Zealand private transfers
It's a ~2 hour drive, so any taxi driver is likely to be happy to take your money for the trip! Or are you after a shared transfer?
