comment Are tickets without reservations interchangeable for Intercités and TER trains?
@mouviciel That FAQ answer is weird. AFAICT there are no Intercités train without compulsory reservation running in PACA, so no comparison is possible. I still haven't found an example where you would need a different-priced ticket on an Intercités without reservation and on a TER for the same route.

comment Are tickets without reservations interchangeable for Intercités and TER trains?
@Vince Thanks for the example. But AFAIK you can take a TER with an Intercités ticket in PACA, no? Just because management is different doesn't mean tickets have to be different. For example, in Île-de-France, suburban tickets and passes are valid in all trains, even non-IdF TER and Intercités, except for trains with compulsory reservations.

I'm not aware of any region where a TER ticket and an Intercités ticket cost a different price (excluding tickets with a reservation or a reduction card). Could you give an example?

comment Can Somebody travel with their gun internationally?
Which countries specifically? Most (I think all) EU countries require a license except for hunting guns. Your US permit doesn't mean anything outside the US (and perhaps Canada). Even if you're in transit, I'm not sure they'd allow a gun in your checked baggage without first obtaining the appropriate permit. Do be aware that in most of Europe, it is not considered normal to use guns for self-defense, only for hunting.

comment 3 days in Amsterdam: What to see?
@Annoyed The subscription is optional. I've never tried to buy the card online and have it mailed to me, only bought it in person (which carries a €5 surcharge).
