Sep 23, 2013 at 5:25 comment added Daniel B @hippietrail I see your point :) The comment about the price was w.r.t. the cost of the flights (and food at the airport, if necessary). In some cases, it's well worth it, IMHO!

Sep 21, 2013 at 3:55 comment added hippietrail @MarkMayo that's a non sequitur. You imply that nobody has ever asked or ever will ask a question with an obvious answer. As for the second point it was the subjectivity I was pointing out: "There's a way to get a show but it's pricey" vs "It's only fifty bucks for a shower". From the comments it apparently was actually obvious to others. d-;
Sep 20, 2013 at 22:41 comment added Mark Mayo @hippietrail what's obvious to you isn't necessarily to others - or the question wouldn't get asked!! And again, your budget may be $10 a day, but there will be business travellers and others who visit here who have no issue with paying that if they can just get a shower.

Sep 20, 2013 at 13:51 comment added user5043 Firstly, congrats for caring! Secondly: Consider paying for that shower anyway. I often fly 12 hour + 2 hour connections, and that shower in the middle makes me more relaxed and less tired when I arrive.
Sep 20, 2013 at 13:48 comment added hippietrail @DanielB: Yeah Mark, bless him, can't resist answering even when answers are really too obvious (-: 30 euros is reasonable? Wow that's almost my reasonable 3-day total living expenses. Subjectivity and all that (-;

Sep 20, 2013 at 8:25 comment added jwenting or just realise that most people you're traveling with will have their noses malfunctioning just as much as yours because of the dry air in the cabin, and will reek just as much after having been stuck in airport waiting lounges (which are always too hot) and security lines for hours and hours before their flight.

Sep 20, 2013 at 7:23 comment added Daniel B Mark's answer has already pointed this out, but it's often quite easy to shower at a lounge while waiting for a connecting flight. Most of them are very reasonably priced, if you consider that you get "free" food and drinks too (e.g. I recently paid 30 EUR for one in Frankfurt). This can work wonders if you have a short second flight following and / or you've brought along a change of clothes.
Sep 20, 2013 at 5:20 comment added hippietrail I have pre-departure but post-checkout showers all the time in all kinds of hotels, hostels, guest houses. I'm at the cheap end but it would surprise me if cheap places offer more services. Just ask, but it probably won't be the shower in the room you checked out of. For all the other points carrying deodorant and spare T-shirts in your daypack / cabin bag and washing your armpits at public restrooms is good enough and more than some people would do.
Sep 20, 2013 at 4:05 comment added hippietrail No puzzle here. 1) everybody's a bit stinky at the end of a long flight so we're all equal which makes not so awkward. 2) you can wash your armpits in the plane's toilet and change into the spare shirt in your carry on luggage. 3) once you've de-planed there's more spacious bathrooms in the airports when you can freshen up a bit more thoroughly. After you collect your checked luggage you can even get to those dangerous items like shampoo and toothbrush (-:
