comment Good area in Hong Kong for buying Electronics Accessories?
The Apliu Street Flea Market at Sham Shui Po was a lot more chaotic, but much more varied than the computer centres! I think it would've had the laptop adapter if I hadn't already bought one yesterday, but handily it did have various other adapters I either needed or quite fancied... Good tip, it was worth the visit :)

The Wan Chai Computer Centre had exactly what I needed, and was open on a Sunday! Also thanks for the directions, very helpful :)

comment Can tourists get French cheque books?
Second query - Does it need to be a French cheque, or would any Euro denominated cheque do?

comment Can tourists get French cheque books?
Pre-paid cheques sound a lot like Travellers Cheques, is that largely what you had in mind?

comment Can a hotel kick you out if you let an unregistered guest share a room with you?
I think it can vary a lot by country (rules, fire codes, average room size, taxes etc) - are you hoping for a general answer, or one specific to a particular country?

comment Can I bag wrap my suitcase at Leeds railway station?
I've never seen bag wrapping at any UK railway station, so I fear you'd be out of luck. Is simply buying a new outer suitcase an option?

How long a visa did you apply for? And how long did you get?

comment Can my mother meet my BF in T5 first class lounge even though she flies to/from T2 & T3?
Also, your BF can't guest someone into any BA lounge who doesn't have a same-day OneWorld flight, so even if she could make it to the terminal (which she can't), she wouldn't be allowed in the lounge!

Another possible problem for you - Terminal 2 closed several years ago, and doesn't re-open until June 2014...

comment Student train discounts in Germany without BahnCard?
You used to be able to buy a BahnCard 25 valid for just 3 months, at a decent discount, if that's still available could that be an option?

comment Two Weeks in Cambridge (England), practicing sport in group
You just need to wrap up warm, and maybe take a thermos of warm winter pimms rather than normal pimms + lemonade, but other than that it's still fun!

comment Is it possible to get a VAT refund on goods I purchased in the UK if I'm departing Europe from Paris?
Surely you'll be leaving the UK at some point to get to France? So can't you claim it then?

comment How do you call a local service number, when abroad?
For the UK, you can use SayNoTo0870 to look up the regular number in place of the special and/or premium numbers. For UK freephone numbers, you can call those from Skype at no charge. Those are fairly UK specific though, so I'm not sure there is a general answer

comment How can I get boarding card in UK Gatwick airport with Direct Airside Transit Visa (DATV)?
BA normally offer online checkin, along with printing your boarding pass, 24 hours before departure. Could you not do this, and print your boarding pass before setting off from home?
