comment Is it rude to ask if the food contains pork or alcohol?
Do you have a reference for the "secret pork" story? Sounds like either an urban legend, or a distorted version of a recent study showing cross-contamination, or of the reasonable warning that many foods which seem like they should be vegetarian are made with animal products (e.g. McDonald's fries and beef fat).

comment Hotel asking cancellation fee
Good to know. I guess when I travel in the US, I'm either a) staying with a friend, b) booking at a conference rate, or c) doing something last-minute, so I never noticed.

comment Hotel asking cancellation fee
@reirab Huh — I've never seen the option at a US hotel. Do you have an example?

comment What is the best way to travel cheap through Scotland?
@GayotFow Add your answer too? Szamanm is probably not the only person interested in traveling through Scotland....

comment Does Mastercard or American Express have more worldwide acceptance?
I've had Mastercards with what seems to me to be comparable auto rental coverage — see mastercard.com/tt/personal/en/findacard/credit_cards/platinum/… — is there some specific benefit or gotcha I'm missing?

Okay, thanks. I think the plan to keep it as backup makes most sense, if it is likely to be only a few MBs.
