comment Is the price per person affected by searching a flight for more than one person?
On full-fare tickets, when booking with some higher end travel agents (eg American Express), it's sometimes possible to get reduced rates when booking two tickets. Last time I looked, it basically brought the cost of two fully-flexible business tickets down to not much more than two non-flexible business ones, which is a large discount, but one not all that useful to many travellers...

They're popular with families, and other people travelling as groups

comment Getting from Fort Collins to Denver Amtrak
From the look of it, probably by travelling down the day before and staying overnight in Denver, but hopefully someone can confirm one way or the other!

It's likely to depend a lot on your planned usage

comment Will my operator-dependent phone work in another country's operator if it is the same company?
Depends on how they've locked it, but as Vodafone UK and Vodafone HU have different network IDs, the answer is probably "No"

comment What to do when no search engine can find a connection that clearly exists
My best guess is that the cheap Iceland air flights from KEF to the US don't combine with the cheap onward US domestic flights, and it's only the very expensive fare classes that can be put together on one itinerary. Can you pull up the fare details of the ones that do and don't go together, to see about that?

comment Is a UK company granted a duty free allowance?
Are you planning to carry the electronics back with you in your luggage, or are you planning to ship them by post/courier/shipping company/etc? (The rules differ)

comment Is it possible to get an Oyster card refund online?
Given that the credit on them doesn't expire, is there a reason why you can't just hold onto it for your next trip to the UK?

comment if I leave schengen area after 3 months, can I return to a different country within the schengen before I finish my 6 month period?
The rules are very clear, as explained in answers to that question. It simply is not allowed - the Schengen zone is a single immigration area. People may sometimes get away with it, but that doesn't change the rules

comment Is New Dehli, India, safe to travel to? (Ebola Scare)
I think in a big city like the OP is in, traffic accidents are likely to be several orders of magnitude more risky for them!

comment Is New Dehli, India, safe to travel to? (Ebola Scare)
I'm not aware of any reported problems with Ebola in India, so I think the answer is "don't worry, just take normal precautions for India"

comment Overnight train: London to Berlin
The killer probably isn't the security restrictions, it's the UK juxtaposed border controls. Also, a sleeper from London to the continent could work despite those, since you'd clear immigration+security at St Pancras, returning would be the hard bit

comment How to get from Gatwick airport to Paddington?
Not sure if it's a good idea to put this answer in now, as it may confuse people in the next 4-5 years, and also bits about Heathrow aren't completely confirmed yet
