Maybe some people end up with some spare cash when they leave a country for good. Their choices basically are: Keep those bills as a souvenir. Spend them in Duty Free. Exchange them at the window to reclaim those money at least partially. Since Duty Free's price policies rival those of exchange windows, it probably makes more sense to exchange your bills ...

If they are on the same ticket (not self-transfer), should you miss the second flight due to no fault of your own, then the airline has to get you to your destination. If it's self-transfer, then you're on your own, and the Stockholm-Oslo return flight will probably be cancelled as well. As both Norway and Sweden are Schengen countries, you will clear ...

Using an ATM internationally may require some pre-planning that most people don't do. As a savvy traveler, you probably already know what your bank is going to charge you for an international withdrawal, but I don't think most people do. You may have notified your bank in advance that you're traveling, so that they don't suspect fraud when an international ...

The Tahiti airport authority lists three shops available at Bora Bora airport. Below is my translation, though there are a few phrases that I'm not sure I've translated correctly. Bars & restaurants: Snack Pora Pora Shops: Arana: Tel 67 68 67 ou 67 52 38 Newsstand with French & foreign magazines, book sales, postcards, ...

Many (e.g. Travelex) also allow you to pre-book your cash for collection at the airport. The rates are much better (seemingly their own online rate, which, while not in the top 10 today, is quite reasonable). This provides a profit stream for the company, while for the user it provides convenience (you're hanging around there anyway) and peace of mind (...

The only space you have a right to is the space underneath your seat. And even then, some aircraft entertainment systems take up much of that legroom. So if your bag won’t fit underneath your seat and you refuse to board without your bag with you, they may bump you to the next flight and let you board that one earlier. If there is no next flight or the ...

Yes. 1.5 hour is plenty unless there is unusual back up at immigration or your incoming flight is significantly delayed That's on the tight side. Mainly the problem is getting from gate to gate. Frankfurt is airport is huge so it depends a bit how far the gates are apart. If both flights arrive/depart from Pier A (typically for Schengen flights), than it's ...

No, but: while you will not go through "actual" immigration and customs, you will need to go through a passport examination that's an awful lot like immigration (complete with long snaking queues at times) and a strict security check afterwards. Fortunately you have plenty of time to connect, so you should be fine, just follow the signs for Transfers.

Everything you need to know is on the official Narita Airport webpage. You are required to pick up your luggage before exiting to the public area, where you then must recheck them in and pass through security to get to your connection. And I don't know what you mean by transfer, but you can travel between Terminal 2 and 3 easily. There is a pedestrian ...

There is only 1 option for you in this case: you need to contact with either the Immigration Officer or the travel agent (as mentioned) to get them process the mainland Vietnam visa in Phu Quoc for you. You can save money by getting Visa on arrival for Vietnam (with cheaper price) before departure to Vietnam, but once you enter Vietnam, you cannot use that ...

Very few items are to be removed from your carry on and put into the trays. At the moment it's laptops and tablets. At some screening points it's the little bag of liquids. Everything else, they don't care where you put it but they care about time. If you have, despite all the signs, video screens, and behaviours of the people in front of you in line, ...

I saw in a documentary that the reason is commercial. Many European airports want you to be on the center, near shopping area, so you can spend more. They get much money from passengers. In US airports are public, so they exploit less passengers. For such reason, they try to keep security queue as short as possible, and try to get as quick as possible ...
