comment Has anyone ever used the Mega Bus?
How would it be dangerous? More dangerous than flying? Than driving yourself? Than other bus operators? Than standing in a field during a lightning storm?

comment Has anyone ever used the Mega Bus?
Hundreds of thousands, if not into millions of people have probably used a megabus in one of the countries they operate in. What's your specific question?

comment Baggage to Australia
Is this on one ticket or two? Who are you flying with from Memphis to Dallas? Those'll make big differences to the answer!

comment Is 80 minutes enough to transit from International to Domestic in SCL?
What is your backup plan if your inbound plane is late? On two tickets things are very risky, as you'd be a now show and they'd cancel that onward flight and any others on that ticket!

comment Any good woodworking/hardware stores in London?
Both places are about an hour from London, and both make nice day trips (or more!)

comment What are the options for a prepaid SIM card in Australia?
I know loads of people who use Amaysim and find them much better than Optus, who's network they use, and customer services seem fine!

comment Driving in North and South Carolina with an Indian driving licence?
There's often a difference in what's allowed for a short term visitor, and what's allowed for long term residents

Offers can vary over time, and also depend on how long you'll be there for. Between now and Christmas, for a short trip, Amaysim are your best bet as they've got a great offer on!

comment How to search for (cheap) flights, for flexible travel dates within 1 week or more?
For a throwaway round trip, I'd suggest you'd need to do a few searches. One for 1-7 days, one for 8-15 days, one for 16-21 days. I very much doubt a throwaway ticket will be cheapest for a very long trip. Quite quick to just hit Modify Search then change the trip length!

They show up for me on a one-way search! i.stack.imgur.com/XgTzq.png

Are you sure you're giving the ITA Matrix the right options? For me, it displays a calendar of a month, each day with the lowest price in it, and I only have to click through to get the details

comment Do I need a transit Visa when changing terminals in LHR(UK)?
@GayotFow Since we're using that as a "canonical answer" for this style of questions (see Meta), any chance you could update the answer to match the rule change?

comment What happens if my luggage goes over the weight limit?
How much are you worried about going over by? 50.5lb instead of 50lb? 52lb? 55lb? 60lb? 70lb? 100lb?

comment How can I add Malaysia Flight details to my British Airways Executive club?
Normally you'd tell Malaysia Airlines about your BAEC details, not the other way around. What happens when you try going to Manage My Booking with Malaysia Airlines, and enter your BAEC details in the frequent traveller section there?

I couldn't find the T2 one, the T3 one is somewhat hidden but does exist! It's by the toilets and ATMs on the far left just before you leave the baggage reclaim area

comment What kind of things can you take from a hotel?
@keshlam I know of a few hotels where the the bathrobes have a little sign hanging on them saying "I've love it here! If you want to take me home, please buy my twin from reception"

There's also the minibar, which is normally chargable, including things not in the minibar but near it (eg food next to it), but there's the odd hotel where the minibar is free

comment What kind of things can you take from a hotel?
It varies by hotel. In the last week, I've had 3 hotels put a bottle of water by my bed. 2 of them it was complimentary, one ended up charging me as apparently it was an extension of the minibar :(

comment What caveats and hitches about airline seats should a flyer beware of?
Sites like Seat Guru and Seat Plans are pretty good at keeping up to date on all the seats in all the planes of all the airlines, and telling you which ones have smaller width / more space / near toilets / etc. What are you after beyond what they offer?
