I have no personal experience with their services, but some people reported to me that Marks&Spencer has a reasonable money exchange services. (I'm not making an answer since I don't know the details.)

comment Item for removing stuff from headphone jack on a plane?
@JoErNanO A drop of water / a wet item in your jack plug won't really hurt your device in dry environment.

comment Are Lufthansa rebooking fees per leg, per flight, or per ticket?
@JoErNanO Not really, all my return tickets by Czech Airlines have got one amadeus (6-character) code and one ticket (3+10-digit) number.

@DavidRicherby Elephants are a no-no on flights. (1) they are animals, (2) they are overweight :D

@reirab But scrissors are allowed up to 4 inches. Ridiculous. (btw, the utili-key opens like scissors; can I claim it's scissors? :D )

So it's not something I would get persecuted for? No rules like "carrying hidden weapons" or I don't know what?

comment If I've visited Crimea, what country do I list on my customs declaration form?
This. Because it can't bring you any troubles; you don't lie to anybody and visiting Crimea isn't illegal. One could as well write Ukraine (Crimea) since the territory is in general still considered Ukrainian, but I don't think it makes any difference, it can only make one feel better.

comment booking.com: Can multiple people manage one booking?
I have done the booking, and now I need someone else to make the payment. Your answer doesn't seem to say anything about it. What is OTA? Why do you say "your relative makes a booking" when the booking has been made months ago by me? How can they even try to pay for it while the card info is supposed to be submitted through my profile on booking.com?

comment I am applying for a Tier 5 Youth Mobility visa, but have been denied a visa/overstayed in the Czech Republic/Schengen zone
The more lying you do, the worse it gets over time. (That's just my 2 cents, however, I don't really have experience with getting visas.)

@WTraveller Usually it's provided with your plane ticket.

comment Do I need UK Transit Visa from India to USA with valid US Visa
Well, transit visa may only allow you to go from the airport to the airport hotel and back. So unless you arrive to LHR and travel for instance from STD, you shouldn't get yourself downtown (depends on the visa though).

comment booking.com: Can multiple people manage one booking?
@Relaxed (getting a bit chatty and off-topic here, aren't we?) Well, there's likely certain legal difference between sharing the number with a vendor (who had to register with VISA to be able to do the payments) and sharing it with anybody else. I'm not an expert though, these are just my thoughts). And yeah, I had to share a card number once over an e-mail and I really hated doing it.

comment booking.com: Can multiple people manage one booking?
@Relaxed I agree with the phone/skype call (voice, moreover in this crazy language we do speak) being somewhat acceptable, but any logged means are a strict no-no. If not for another reason, just for the fact that your card insurance can be void/limited if you do that.

@JoErNanO That's what I meant. Well, you can probably post the answer even now, I'll just wait with the accepting to see if some other solution is found.

comment booking.com: Can multiple people manage one booking?
@JoErNanO Yeah, I considered this as well, especially since I'm in a hurry now and they're not at the internet. Well, I'll leave it the question as is for some time, if no better thing is found, I'll re-word it so that your comments fits as an answer. Is it fine with you?
