comment Can I transfer from Heathrow T3 to T5 without a visa? I am a Philippine Passport holder
@GayotFow We generally don't want to delete duplicates: they're useful as search fodder. Visitors who find a question that's closed as a duplicate and unanswered are automatically redirected to the duplicate target.

comment Which is the best exit from metro Montparnasse to get to Avenue du Maine northbound direction?
@camden_kid All exits are reachable from all lines. It's just that to reach this block of exits from lines 4 and 12, there's a long corridor.

comment Roissybus - No more child fare, but how about baby?
I do believe that the fares on the RATP site are correct (I can vouch for the Orlybus fare at least as the last time I took it was after the last price increase). I guess Paris Info charges for delivery. And they're not good at updating their site, they even list 9€10 at parisinfo.com/transports/73373/RoissyBus on the “descriptif” tab (I think that's the former former ticket price).

comment Roissybus - No more child fare, but how about baby?
The price listen on the Paris Info website is the price that they charged you the last time they updated the page — if you order now you'll pay 12.10€! The price listed by RATP and ADP is the actual ticket price which you'll pay if you buy the ticket at a vending machine or ticket sales office.

comment How to get a visa reissued in France after having lost my passport?
Years ago (but post-Schengen), I knew an Indian student in France whose passport was stolen. He ended up getting a temporary passport, and he didn't need to leave the country. I don't know the details, I've long lost contact with him, and it's possible that the rules have changed, but I doubt that it's impossible to get the visa reissued or get a new visa without leaving the country.

@Relaxed In most of France, yes, but in Paris, more of the popular museums close on Mondays.

@HenningMakholm “PNR number” in the question implies India.

comment How to “acquire the right” to travel within the Schengen states while on “Long term French visa”
@JoErNanO It doesn't apply to all EU country pairs. There's definitely no such thing as a “residence visa”. EU citizens don't need to apply for the right to reside elsewhere in the EU provided that they have a source of income (simplifying a bit); some countries require that you declare your residence but that is only a declaration, it cannot be denied. Obviously you still need to declare your situation correctly to tax administrations, healthcare administration, etc.

comment Invitation letters for my Indian parents coming to the Netherlands
Regarding transit in Zurich, the answer is that you only need a single visa, because all of the Schengen area counts as one country for this type of visa. See Should my first trip be to the country which issued my Schengen Visa? and many other schengen visas questions.

comment Disembark flight at unplanned refuelling stop, if the stop is same as ultimate destination?
@HagenvonEitzen Is it? Most routes between Canada and Europe wouldn't go anywhere near the US.

comment If you're speeding by 20, why's it less hassle to ticket for 10 or 15?
This question appears to be off-topic because it is about means of transportation, not travel in a particular place. It could be made on-topic if it was asking about customs in a particular location.

comment If there are no planes flying into Nancy, can I schedule my own connecting flight from Strasbourg? Or anywhere for that matter?
@DavidRicherby Even Paris doesn't have direct flights to Louisville or Indianapolis. Nor does Heathrow, so I suspect neither offers any translatlantic flight. Imataloss will have to go via Detroit or New York or Washington or something.

comment If there are no planes flying into Nancy, can I schedule my own connecting flight from Strasbourg? Or anywhere for that matter?
@Relaxed Yes, it's the combination of the size and the train travel time that's too small to sustain flights. Is flying to Luxembourg really a viable option between Roissy and Nancy? I don't know how well-connected Nancy and Luxembourg airport are. There aren't many flights between Paris and Luxembourg.

comment How bad is it to overstay my Schengen visa by 6 days?
There's a passport control when you exit the Schengen area. They'll scan your passport and update the record for your visa in the database, and I'm pretty sure that a message will pop up on the official's screen telling them that you overstayed. The consequence may well be a fine and a Schengen visa interdiction lasting several years.

The part about Oyster is a duplicate, but not the part about Heathrow to Balham.

comment Is an Oyster card worth it for 3 days?
Most of your questions (but not the Heathrow–Balham bit) are answered at Transportation from St Pancras station to ExCel convention center. If you're going to make at least two trips in central London, then an Oyster card is cheaper than paper tickets.

comment Is an Oyster card worth it for 3 days?
The price cap is not available on standard oyster cards? When did that change? Last I was in London, a day pass would be automatically counted if it was cheaper than individual tickets. A benefit of standard Oyster cards is that they can be fully refunded (though this isn't worth the hassle if you leave London in such a way that there's no open ticket office at your exit point). See Transportation from St Pancras station to ExCel convention center — is any part of that answer wrong?

comment Is there a Paris equivalent of London's Oyster Pay-As-You-Go?
@tohecz True, but for most occasional visitors it's not worth getting a carnet for point-to-point tickets. Beware that these tickets are magnetic and employees are not as accommodating as they used to be when a ticket becomes demagnetized. I think the rules have changed and the ticket is now officially invalid if it has become demagnetized.

@Karlson I don't get it. How are standard traffic patterns not related to traveling (by car, bus or taxi)?

comment Cheapest (and hopefully fastest) option for family to transfer from CDG to ORY
@StephenKennedy On the contrary, the answer to “options from A to B” would be the right page on adp.fr whereas an answer to a specific situation (X hours, children) is a specific question that we can answer with specific expertise.
