Good to have the hotel's perspective too!

comment passport damage to e-chip
Failed to work at the e-passport gate, or the immigration officer commented when admitting you that the chip wasn't working? (They're quite different)

comment Dublin transit visa requirements for Indian citizens
As for her intra-schengen flight, was she travelling on her own, or with you? (The rules for spouses of EU citizens vary on if they're travelling along or with their spouse)

comment Dublin transit visa requirements for Indian citizens
The UK and RoI share some common immigration rules (the Common Travel Area), but not all. You'll need to look up if a UK Spouse Visa is valid in Ireland under the CTA or not

comment Travel insurance against death in Europe
If you update your question to make clear that you already have some life insurance, and want extra, then I'll delete my comments. If you have some other specific reason for wanting extra cover when travelling, put it in the question. If not, I'll be minded to answer explaining how travelling in Europe is pretty safe on a global scale, and how you'd be better off with Life Insurance to protect you in general and not just when travelling around Europe

comment Travel insurance against death in Europe
Sorry, I'm not understanding you. If you're worried about how your family would survive financially if you died, then how would it be any different if the (say) car accident was while you were on holiday, as opposed to on your way to work on a normal non-holiday day? i.e. what's special about your travels that means you'd like extra insurance for it happening then?

comment Travel insurance against death in Europe
If you're concerned about dying and your family needing money, given that holidays aren't normally much more risky than living at home, would you not be better off taking out a general Life Insurance policy?

comment How to use a “code avantage” discount code from the SNCF Voyageur program?
Ah ha! If you go to the homepage, it has all those boxes except the Code Avantage one. The link you've given has a different form with the space for it, which is what I'd missed, thanks!

comment Is there any way to tell if someone has been through our hotel room?
Some hotels have guest safety rules which mean they want to enter the room to check, no matter the Do Not Disturb sign. I once found security and hotel management outside my room, about to enter when returning very late from work having accidentally left a "Do Not Disturb" sign on the door and a spare key in the light when leaving that morning

comment How to know a flight is not full?
Don't forget that there's only a loose mapping between seats booked in advance and seats in use at takeoff. Overbooking, missed connections, flexible tickets, staff on standby, no-shows etc!

Be tired? (I always sleep much better coming back from skiing / hiking etc by sleeper than on the way there!)

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

comment What will happen if I cancel the credit card with which I booked a flight?
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
