comment Hiring car in Florida under 21 y/o with European license?
Hertz will rent to you, but they're one of the more expensive car rental agencies and you'll also have to pay a Young Driver Surcharge.

comment Am I supposed to re-check luggage at YYZ on a flight from Europe to USA?
As far as I can tell, both Air Canada and YYZ agree that connecting to a US-bound flight in Terminal 1 (where Air Canada operates out of) should not need you to pick up your luggage in YYZ. Assuming both flights were in fact in T1, the only thing I can think of (besides handling error) is that your check-in agent in Germany only tagged your bags through to Toronto for some reason.

Go speak to a travel agent--they'll be able to charge each ticket separately.

comment How to procure a Schengen visa for a Thai boyfriend
With respect to refundable airfares and hotels, it is always possible to book refundable, wait for the visa, cancel the refundable, and book cheaper non-refundable flights + rooms if the visa was successful.

comment Open gates on the Paris Metro
@Vince It was today, i.e. Wednesday, so I don't believe that Metro trips were meant to be free, especially since I took two other trips on the Metro today and both of those required a ticket.

comment Why is taxi fare (in the UK at least) the same price for 1 as for 4 people
Well, a black cab weighs 4354 lb (excluding driver), and most people are not rugby players, so I'm not sure the fuel consumption will in fact be "noticeably" affected. In any case, economics dictates that prices are set not based on costs, but on what people are willing to pay, and I have a strong feeling that people would be much less willing to use taxis if they were priced per-person (or if there was a per-person surcharge), which is not what the taxi drivers/companies want.
