comment How can I avoid or minimise haggling without causing offence?
I'm assuming you've seen the Haggling Scene from The Life Of Brian? (Find a version of youtube if not!)

comment Are there any Carsten Höller slides in museums/galleries in Central or Eastern Europe?
Meta is the right place to ask this sort of thing, so there's a record and clarity!

comment EU: Medical insurance mandatory at border control?
Can you get something from them in advance? Might be wise anyway, otherwise what would happen if you (say) had an accident in the airport and needed treatment?

comment Joining the hop-on/off tour of Paris from CDG airport
Could you clarify if that's the only place to join, or just the best given the connections?

We discussed it on chat, and it was felt that the whole world would result in a "too list like" question, so the suggestion was to limit it to just one (broad-ish) area. If you think that's the wrong call, meta is the place to discuss / debate it! :)

comment What if I don't take my last transfer at British Airways
Would this be a one-off dropping of the last leg, or is it something you plan to do fairly often? Also, which frequent flier program will you be crediting to, BAEC or another OneWorld one?

Several hours! Took a bit of time on chat to get a consensus on how to form it into a good question though...

comment Oyster charges for multiple routes between two places
You'll need to touch a route validator if you take the "unusual" (aka cheaper) route so it knows you did (eg avoiding zone 1). Someone can hopefully point you at the full details from the TFL site

comment Working out the best European country to post a parcel from to Australasia?
@Vince I don't want to give the exact details of my parcel, as I feel that would make it too localised. My questions isn't so much how I can minimise the cost of this one parcel, it's how anyone travelling through Europe can work out what's the best country to post their parcel from!

comment Working out the best European country to post a parcel from to Australasia?
As an example, posting my parcel from the UK to Australia looks to be about €5 seamail, €10 airmail. Assuming I can work the Croatian postal website correctly, seamail would be €24 and airmail €28! That degree of variety seems enough of a difference to make me want to investigate the cheapest option

comment Working out the best European country to post a parcel from to Australasia?
It's too big and heavy for "letter" posting, small enough and light enough to not need a shipping company. Think a bunch of souvenirs, a few tshirts, a couple of books, that sort of thing. I suspect "small international parcel" in most countries will get it there, I just want to work out which country is best to post from! And my hunch is, quite a lot of people on a European tour may find themselves in a similar position with a kg or two of stuff to post home part way through
