comment Data plans in Germany that can also can be used elsewhere in Europe
I haven't heard about reasonably priced Internet plans that work throughout Europe, the best way to go still seems to have a local sim card in every country you are visiting.

@Dirty-flow, I am pretty sure they are very close for the specific route and the specific period.

Some cheap airlines are worse than the others, and I always try to avoid the worse one :)

comment Which ski resorts in western Europe offer free lifts (intended for families)?
@DarkLightA, this is a fair point. However, the pass is more like a few hundred pounds for a week, and it costs pretty much the same to go to an area with free lifts.

Wow, they go really long way to detect these things! I don't think they have these systems here in Arabba yet, but I am not sure obviously.

@Vince, while a reduced cost beginner area is surely useful, the question was specifically about free areas.

@MarkMayo, thanks for your comment. I narrowed it down, hopefully will be helpful for other people now as well.

@MarcelC., I think you are right. I will ask (a bit more general) question about the second part.

comment How can I find the cheapest private hotel room (as opposed to a bed in a dorm) using online tools?
Checking hostelbookers, and the functionality is a bit sh1t to be honest, because I selected 1 person, and it sorts by the per person price of the cheapest private option (which is usually private 8 person or something ridiculous)

comment Why is public transport from/to the airport so expensive?
London City Airport is in Zone 3 (not that it changes anything). Also to get EasyBus tickets for £2 you need to book months in advance, on the day they are at least £8.

comment How do carpool lanes in the US work?
When it says "2 passengers", does it include the driver? I.e. if there is only the driver and one other person in the car, do they count as "2 passengers"?

comment When booking a hotel via an opaque site, is there any way to increase the chances of getting free wifi?
As far as I know these paque booking sites usually target better hotels (4* an up), and these usually don't have free wifi, at least in the rooms...
