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!

These trains use a different menu to the normal domestic TGV one - see my answer!

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

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

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

comment Why do UK train tickets crossing London include the underground, but Paris ones don't for the metro?
@Bernhard And with Eurostar too, but it's still another ticket to buy, and isn't available on all trains arriving into Paris

comment Airside arrivals area at Heathrow T3
If you follow the signs for the underground, you'll stay inside the whole time. If you follow the signs for taxis or local buses, you'll exit the terminal at the front. Staying inside between plane and baggage claim is often a good thing :)

comment Send 1 overweight suitcase instead of 2 underweight?
@DavidRicherby But people don't sit at the very very back! "At the pointy end" is (I believe) a fairly well known euphemism for sitting in a premium class (first/business/as appropriate)
