Yes, it may be very well worth to give it a try. Location based price differences are quite common in the travel industry and it is very much possible to save money by pretending to be somewhere else. Seeing that you are from Denmark, a specific example would be the Color Line ferry from Hirtshals to Larvik tonight at 22:15. If you try to book two persons ...

I actually did it. Not easy but not dangerous either. Here is my solution: Zero road crossing (the road from the airport, and even more so the highway to which it leads, are large roads with fast traffic, crossing them would be suicidal). One hour of walk. OK with a backpack and hiking shoes, not OK with a rolling suitcase or light shoes. Itinerary: Exit ...

Most Viennese museums request just a valid ID/Passport/Driving License which shows the age. Same is valid in rest of Austria. Other countries might have different rules. For example, "The Kunsthistorische Museum" in Vienna mentions "Pensionisten ab 65 oder mit gültigem Pensionistenausweis" "Pensioners over 65 or with valid pensioner card" The EU law does ...

Just contacted Island Trader, they said NO. Insurance etc was too difficult, and they no longer carry passengers. What a shame as this would be an awesome boat trip!

The nearest hotel seems to be Кедровый Дом It's a 2km walk along a road that none of maps consider walkable, but on OSM it is accompanied by minor roads which should be walkable. Note that they're not 2GIS, but on satellite view they're visible. They seem to degrade at the end of path but not impassable. The real challenge here is crossing major road at the ...

I'll work on this answer or I'll change it to an answer wiki if anybody prefers. Please let me know. This is just a rough version so far... FamilyMart : 3 X 20 minutes per day via email registration. May have seats and power! Look for イートイン "eat in". Can be confusing to get working and staff can't help. Lawson Station : Easiest konbini Wi-Fi to use by far! ...

There are typically no discount tickets for students in Germany. As student, you get a 'Semsterticket' together with your matriculation documents after payment of your semester fee. This ticket allows you to use public buses and trains for free within the state, except long range trains like IC/EC/ICE. Since Bremen is a small state on its own, the range ...

Everything is free if you are under 26 years old, also the Trianon. There is just an exception: you can't visit the gardens when there are the musical fountains shows. As it says on the ticket shop page: Attention, on days with Musical Fountains show or Musical Gardens, access to the Gardens is free only for children under 6. Tickets for the Musical ...

7-11 and Starbucks also have free Wi-Fi. (I can't recall if McDonald's has Wi-Fi, but they tend to in most countries) There is also this "Free Wi-Fi Passport" offered by Softbank: https://www.softbank.jp/en/mobile/special/freewifi/en/ According to the site you only need to provide "mobile phone number, password, gender and age group". For that to work, ...

Another recent option is a Swapfiets. You pay a monthly fee of currently 17.50 Euros (15 for students) and get a decent bike, repairs included. Contract duration is one month. They're not sport bikes, but should be sufficient for inner-city transportation and occasional longer trips. (No affiliation, I just think this is one of the cases where their offer ...

According to booking.com, the hotel mentioned by alamar offers a free shuttle: https://www.booking.com/hotel/ru/cedar-house.html, so technically you won't spend money on transportation since you plan on staying in a hotel anyways.

I have been doing this many times, for flights, rental cars, and hotels, and never had any issues with it. Often you can save a lot, but it is not always cheaper; and you have to be aware of country specific regulations (and potentialy speak other languages - sometimes prices change when you switch the language). [Example: flights within Peru are extremely ...

The very flight that was the reason for my question has just had a price decrease: Google Flight price tracker. "Today" is 2½ months before the flight. So, I'd say that yes, prices CAN go down. I agree, however, that counting on that possibility is not a safe strategy.

Flying on an airline with reduced excess luggage fees This is probably the best option, as you get to check the luggage with you and fly to your final destination.

I just read about this on Air France this past week. See this page from the Points Guy for more details: Air France Le Pass (Note: I am in no way associated with TPG). What it looks like is that you can buy "Le Pass" for a given number of flights with a given amount of specificity on routes and timings. You can choose a specific route, or choose flights ...

There are a lot of good answers to this question. However, an answer that actually provides a complete overview is lacking. I recently wrote an article on my website where I covered all of the wild camping rules for every single European country. You can find that article here: Wild camping in Europe: Complete legal overview. Covering every European country ...

To use the WIZZ Discount Club, your girlfriend's ticket must be on the same booking as yours. Unfortunately you cannot add passengers to your booking, so you need to create a new one. But I assume that it will cost more so it's not worth it. From wizzair.com: Can I add more passengers to my reservation: Unfortunately this is not possible. You will ...

You need to make sure that you have a metro card as you can not buy one at Hudson’s or any outlet in JFK. Take the Q10 Bus from T5 going to Kew Gardens union TPK Station.Get off Lefferts Blvd and Cuthbert Rd. From here you can catch the A or C train into Manhattan. If you didn’t have a metro card pay 2.75 on the bus so make sure you have change. This is time ...

Using Booking dot com you can find in the whole country and filter by "hostel" so you can get at once all the prices. Specifically for Japan here's the link sorted by price and filtered to show only the hostels. You have more than 1000 options to choose from 7 euros. This is just an example and have in mind that Booking has not all hostels in Japan, but ...

I suspect you're correct; Taoyuan station to Taipei station is 52 TWD by local train, or about US$1.60. There is also the recently opened Taoyuan MRT Subway service via the airport, but this doesn't cover the old Taoyuan station (only the new HSR one) and is much pricier at 160 TWD.

Not as of right now. Madrid Barajas' official website lists all non-stop destinations and airlines flying them. It lists only EgyptAir against "El Cairo" (the Spanish name for the city). http://www.aena.es/en/madrid-barajas-airport/airport-destinations.html#E

If I remember right that might've been Vayama, they changed the program to directly offering Secret Fare. The closest they now seem to have to this is a dubious seeming "Exclusive Phone Offer:" Priceline offers Express Deals. Hopper briefly offered a "Secret Fare" program as well but shut it down.

ITA Matrix can help with this (note that it is strictly a flight search tool and not a booking engine; it cannot book any flights). Choose "advanced controls" and add the MINMILES code to the "extension code" field. For example "MINMILES 5000" will filter the results to only show routings of 5000+ miles. (The number of miles may not match the frequent flyer ...

As other replies say, there are Trains from wherever you stay to Monaco and is quite cheap. If you are on a budget you have some different possibilities and I'd suggest what I'd do in a budget: Get general entrance tickets. You still have a great view and you'll join and enjoy the Grand Prix. I believe with that ticket you can also enjoy Monaco's Castle ...

In late Feb 2018 I stayed in the village of Casilda just outside Trinidad (my hosts were Sergio y Lesly, a nice stay). There's a beach called Playa Ancon a short ride away by horse cart or if you can stand the heat, by bicycle. The first part of it is all-coral, sadly bleached, but you only have to step into the water to start seeing fishes. A delightful ...
