comment How punctual are Swiss trains?
Yes, now I have to add another one. If you miss your last connection, also take to the train conductor. If it is their fault, they have to pay a taxi for you.

But also here it depends. The 1/50 chance is only if you take connections as an average passenger. If for example you're always taking the Railjet at Sunday night from Vienna to Zurich, you're almost always late.

comment How punctual are Swiss trains?
Generally, the trains are really quite punctual. And even if not, a lot of times they are able to make the time up while traveling. Furthermore, important connecting trains often wait for a delayed connection. If this doesn't work out, you can always take to the train conductor. In most cases they are very helpful and will provide support to find a suitable alternative train for you. If you unsure if you're will be able to get your connection, you can also always ask them for help. Then they will try to call the connecting train to wait for you. this also works for a lot of local buses.

comment How to protect electronics on a beach holiday/vacation
I closed this question since it's really something you shouldn't do as others already pointed out. If you have a new question, please do not edit your old one, but ask a new question.

comment What cool things can I do with GPX routes that I have collected from my travels?
As @mindcorrosive said this is off-topic because of of the question form, I'm going to close this. However, I would consider to go to hikr.org with your data.

comment Rooftop restaurant in Santiago, Chile
We have a similar question about New York (travel.stackexchange.com/questions/9364/…). I think this question is okay, since it is quite limited (rooftop, high security, ...) @ragnvald If you could add a little bit more information (e.g. prices) that would be even better.

comment What is the nearest underwater hotel to Germany?
I think there is not one available, a lot of them are announced, but I couldn't find any. Take a look for example at this page which claims to be the first underwater resort, however, it is not yet available: poseidonresorts.com

comment How can I travel to the north pole (Arctic areas) from Russia cheaply?
@uncovery True, but questions are duplicates if they're asking for the same thing, not if it happens that the answer is the same.

comment Can you suggest a route to travel from Moscow to Siberia and return in 2 weeks?
This question is way too broad and therefore there is no real answer to it. Additionally, the most interesting route is also not very specific. What means interesting for you?

comment How much would it cost to take a train from Krakow to Prague, Prague to Munich, Munich to Hamburg, and Hamburg to Warsaw?
I wanted to emphasize the part about 300$ for each leg.

If you're talking about 300 USD for each leg then you should have left some pocket money :)

comment With car rental should I pay now or pay later?
That could be possible. But I'm not sure if this is a legal thing to do. Even if I do not pay now, I have a contract with them.

comment Pick up full tank, return empty policy
@Vince It depends on the car, but normally you're able to drive 30-50 kilometers, even if the car warns you that the tank is really empty. But that's not the only problem: It will be very difficult to plan to empty the tank at the drop off station, especially if you're unfamiliar with the region. I think most people are not going to risk that they will end up with no gas.

comment Pick up full tank, return empty policy
@Vince The problem is that you will always pay more since it is very unlikely that you're able to return the car with a really empty gas tank.

I agree to migrate the other question, but here, I'm not so sure if it should be migrated.
