comment Does luggage need to be rechecked if you connection is in another country?
@pnuts -- if you transfer from an international flight to a domestic one, you always (afaik) have to get your luggage and walk it through customs. If it were interlined from international to domestic, it would never go through customs at all.

comment Does luggage need to be rechecked if you connection is in another country?
@pnuts -- the US is a special case. Alone (afaik) among the nations, we have no exit controls: you just walk out. The downside of this is, there is no "airside" at the airport. If you change planes at a US airport, you must go through passport control and demonstrate you have the legal right to enter the US (you can get a simpler, but not simple, transit visa). Of necessity, you go through Customs, with your carry-on luggage. It may be that your airline will give you your checked luggage so you can take it through too. I just don't know.

Apparently there is a thing called an "interlining agreement" between airlines. I don't know how it works.

comment Australian visa and criminal convictions
Australia isn't admitting convicted criminals? A complete reversal of their old policy.

comment Buying a flight ticket from a different country
@samy -- what, are you thinking you should have a paper ticket? I don't think I have flown with non-virtual ticket in 15 years. Show your passport.

comment Is there a defined/standard way to determine the relative cost of staying in a particular city?
@jpatokal -- I know, but "the chicken version of the Big Mac" makes as little sense as "the WASP version of Woody Allen".

comment Buying and insuring a car in the US for a roadtrip
@AdrienBe, I have traveled only superficially in Mexico, but I can read the newspaper. Maybe you should Google "decapitation mexico".

comment Is there a defined/standard way to determine the relative cost of staying in a particular city?
I don't know if I would say "but" food is extremely cheap in America; I would say "and" food is extremely cheap in America -- therefore it is cheaper to live here, seeing as I need food to live. Restaurant food, especially foreign restaurant food, is often more expensive than local, market food, but a traveler will often be eating in restaurants. Finally, as I said, no index is perfect; the OP didn't ask for perfect, he asked for standard.

comment How much Indian currency can I carry to Thailand from India?
You can ask the OP what he planned to do specifically, but it is the essence of tyranny to ask "Why would a law-abiding person want to do this thing I am making unlawful?" The point is, the OP has some reason that he himself finds sufficient and he should not have to justify himself to anyone not involved.

7,500 INR is less than $120 USD. What a huge pain in the ass.

comment what do i use as zipcode in usa when ireland doesnt have zipcodes?
Re-read my answer. That was (my interpretation of) the OP's misunderstanding of the process. The bank never sends personal information about the card-holder to the merchant.
