comment Is it possible to apply for UK transit visa in Heathrow on arrival?
@AleksG There are airside "flight connections" buses at Heathrow, so no need to go landside between T4 and T5. Big problem is the visa to board in Bombay, unless they qualify for an exemption

comment Travel in the Schengen area after my residence card was lost or stolen
Why would you go to a visa check desk on an intra-schengen flight? There's no immigration controls!

@Relaxed For an intra-schengen flight, there's no immigration check, it's purely an identity check

There's a recent Daily Telegraph article here which gives some more options, but I've not tried the others listed so I can't comment on their suitability

comment Do I have to recheck luggage in Heathrow Airport transferring from a flight on Delta to British Airways?
CTA won't change things customs wise, you'll clear customs on arrival in Ireland, it'll all depend on the ticketing

Ibis Budget is one that springs to mind, but I'm not sure if they'd have suitable rooms or not?

comment Do I need an EU visa if I'm married to a UK citizen?
Have you and your partner only ever lived in the UK, or have you spent time living in other EU countries? (Whether or not your partner has exercised their "treaty rights" can affect things)

comment How much time do I require to make a connection in Munich airport?
Are you wondering if you can make it if everything goes well, or are you wondering about your chances of making it if there are any problems (delays on inbound flight, long queue at immigration etc)?

comment iPad, cellular data sim card, London UK?
General rule - get an unlocked ipad (no carrier lock), then get whoever offers the cheapest data PAYG (pay as you go = pre-paid) sim at the time when you land. What that might be will vary over time, depending on price wars and special deals!

As a general rule, the Wiki Voyage "Stay Safe" section on most cities is normally pretty good. Did you try reading that for your intended destination? Any questions after that?
