The procedure is the same as when you get a ticket for your yourself. If you have concerns, look at some Justairticket reviews. Customers share their experience with buying tickets.

You can do this with ITA Matrix search. Enter your search parameters, and then click "Advanced Controls" under "Extension codes" (or Outbound and Return Extension codes if you are searching for a return flight), enter -CITIES HKG. There are lots of other interesting parameters you can use in the routing and extension codes sections which you can find by ...

Answering my own question: turns out the 24-hour limit is in place because all ETS Platinum trains continue past Ipoh to Penang/Padang Besar. So you can book well in advance if you're going further than Ipoh, but they don't want people traveling only to Ipoh to hog all the seats. In the end, as we'd been told there was plenty of space and we had no ...

Am I likely to find hosts who would agree to this deal? Sure. I've done it myself. But on the part of the host-- long-term, off-the-books rentals are not wise. The laws vary by state but if a host allows a guest to stay in their home long enough (California is something trivial like 2 weeks), and they are collecting the equivalent of "rent" from the ...

Keep in mind that if you e-mail the agent for the property (owner or otherwise) saying, "I'll give you $1000 to stay here from June 1st to 7th this year" and they reply, "Ok," you now have a legally binding written contract. The risk here is not about not having a contract (even an oral agreement can be legally binding if correctly formed) but in how you ...

The Reporting your presence is required in Italy, which the host must comply with. The likelihood is high that they are asking for the passport image beforhand so that they can fill out the form (twice) so that all you have to do is sign it upon arrival. If you don't want to do this, print out the corresponding form, fill it out properly and tell them ...

Yes, you are likely to find hosts that will agree. You are also likely to find a host who, upon your revelation of dishonesty, refuses to rent to you and reports you to AirBNB.

I would do this only for subsequent stays and with a written contract. I've done this. I was renting a furnished apartment for about 5 weeks over Airbnb¹. After about 3 weeks, the host asked if I wanted to renew, and if so, with or without Airbnb. He wrote a contract which we both signed, only then I paid, and less than through Airbnb. I don't care ...

As Nate Eldredge pointed out this is against Air BnB's T&C's and could result in both you and the property provider being banned from their platform. But it's pretty dam unlikely you would get caught, so let's assume you and property owner have agreed to the deal you suggested. What additional downsides exist? The homeowner could take your cash, then ...

Airbnb would almost certainly consider this to be a terms of service violation. From Section 14: In connection with your use of the Airbnb Platform, you will not and will not assist or enable others to: [...] use the Airbnb Platform to request, make or accept a booking independent of the Airbnb Platform, to circumvent any Service Fees or for any ...

Tor is blocked by airlines most probably not due to "security" concerns, but rather because airline websites are notorious for using all manner of browser traffic/history sniffing to alter the price for different customers to maximize the ticket price. To test this out, visit a few airline websites in Private Mode versus Normal Mode in your browser. Its not ...

You can amend your nationality during Web Check-in.

In my experience, it's not just Tor; I have found that many companies either block or restrict access via VPN networks. Sometimes the restriction is subtle (e.g., Hilton often reports a login error if I am access it it via a VPN, American Airlines often just spins and never loads when I am on a VPN). I assume they believe that VPN users are more likely to ...

Credit card fraud is a considerable problem for airlines. You would think the fraud risk would be low—after all, passengers usually have to appear in person with photo ID to make use of the service—but as there are a number of types of fraud, "airlines alone lose from $2.4 billion to $4.8 billion to credit card fraud annually." In particular, fraudsters can ...

This doesn't happen with all airlines, obviously. I tried to visit several airlines with Tor and found I could not access Lufthansa or Air Canada, but I could access British Airways, American Airlines, Air India, Emirates and Etihad. In the two cases, I saw the following error: Access Denied You don't have permission to access "http://www.aircanada....

You will need to ask your SAP/Concur administrator on this one. Typically this question is related to how the internal accounting is setup and that's different for every company. Often "indirect" travel means its getting charged to an overhead account. "Direct" would mean it's being charge directly to a client or a project. Which one it is depends on your ...
