To answer your questions, starting with your last one: Losing and retaining/reacquiring Philippine Citizenship Per Philippine Commonwealth Act. no. 63 (section 1, paragraph 1), you automatically lost Philippine citizenship when you became Australian (the quote is from Lawphil.net): Section 1. How citizenship may be lost. – A Filipino citizen may lose ...

For Aussies such as yourself, my site - Beat That Flight (and beta Android app) might be able to help a bit. For example, on a search from Sydney to Hong Kong - on the left side, you can see baggage options, with the perceived difference in price: It's not perfect, and relies on data on upstream providers as well, but makes an effort to try and calculate ...

Yes, this is possible. I found it wasn't covered by the kiwi.com FAQ so I called kiwi.com customer service, and after some confusion and explaining they disabled the automatic check-in for my flight.

63€ for gasoline seems right in this part of the world, and for 63€ to become an unnoticeable difference, you would have had to buy snakcs for several hundred €'s, that's a lot, so you really should have noticed, so for all practical purposes you did commit a crime. I don't know the German level for typical fines, but I think 100€ sounds cheap. So you ...

Kayak is not my first choice of search engines, but I do note that it now attempts to factor carry-ons and checked bags into the price. You have to start the search and then change the zero bags default in the filters. Kiwi.com (which I also am not thrilled with) will tell you which flights allow NO bags, which isn't a great help, but it's something. ...

I book flights regularily and actually keep a list of hidden charges for the sites that come up near the top of any search regularily. Then, when I make a new search and see the prices listed, I simply add the hidden charges I know about in my head. Typically, the offers are close enough together that the hidden charges actually do make a difference. It's a ...

You might be guilty of theft or fraud by taking the gas without paying. The station could have filed criminal charges and you would get a chance to argue your viewpoint that it is all their fault in court. (Or you could have ignored the summons. Could be trouble on your next visit ...) Instead they decided to send you an invoice for the debt, with ...

The gov.uk site has a whole page about this, the summary at the top states: If you applied outside the UK contact UKIV to find out how to cancel your application You can only get your fee refunded if your application hasn’t been processed yet. If you applied within the UK You can cancel via an online form, but you will not be refunded. You won’t get ...

As @skifans pointed out, I was wrong to assume that ISIC require university attendance. The reason I thought so was that their online dropdown for schools only showed universities, but it is possible to type any name into that textbox, so I entered the primary school name there. As proof of attendance, I submitted a screenshot from my daughter's profile ...

You have to pay the courier fee for each applicant separately, even if the packages arrive together they need to be paid for individually. You can't send multiple applications for the cost of one. Every cost related to an application will need to be paid for each applicant, regardless of whether they apply together and are a family. (Application Fee + ...

I believe what you're referring to is the fee mentioned here in PPTC 153: As it says on the form, the $25 fee is included in the $160 application fee. It is not an additional fee. Further down, you can see that if you cancel your application or are refused, then only the $25 portion of the whole $160 is refundable. So, you want to pay $160.

I don't know for certain, but I would guess that the "time/km" entry actually means "time or km" (rather than "time per km", which doesn't make sense). You are doing a time-based rental (because you have unlimited km), which is 6 days, at presumably $1 per day. That seems rather inexpensive, but as mentioned in the comments it may be normal for cars in that ...

The fare rules you've listed allow you to change the date of the return flight only (NOT the outbound flight which is the "1st Flight Coupon") for free, but only if the new flight you are changing to meets certain conditions (same "Routing/Carrier/fare Amount/fare basis/stopover Condition") If you are simple looking to change to the same flight on a ...

The whole question depends on the exact terms of the ticket, fare AND the booking agent ( whether it is a site, or a real agent, or even the company itself. That being said - and speaking from own ( quit big ) experience in changing and cancelling - The Changes / Cancellation fees in almost always for the TICKET as a whole and not the LEG / SEGMENT. I ...

If this is of any value, the answer is yes. http://www.ontarioparks.com/hphp/freedayuse

I have just spent few months living in Buenos Aires. Researched the topic of ATM withdrawals and money exchange, and can confirm the following findings. The smallest ATM fee is at Banco De La Nacion. It's around 230 ARG (or 5 USD). All other banks charge 10 USD or more. Max withdrawal limit: Up to 4000 ARG Also, Banco De La Nacion seems to be the best ...

From my experience today (6 September 2019) with a Visa Debit card issued by a major French bank, it seems that Aeon Bank ATMs do not charge fees (or if they do, they don't tell you*, which would be surprising). Aeon Bank ATMs are unfortunately not as ubiquitous as Japan Post Bank or Seven Bank ones, but can still be easily found nationwide using a ...

As confirmed at One Mile at a Time and FlyerTalk, both of which are broadly reliable for such information, you can indeed avoid the booking charge (CIC) by purchasing the ticket at the airport ticket counter. Although Frontier's contract of carriage asserts a right to assess an "additional processing fee" for tickets purchased at an airport counter, its ...

I think I know the answer now. I wanted to complete all the applications before paying, so I filled them all in. I noticed that the payment information for my children said $0, whereas for myself and my wife it said $25 (application fee). I gather it gives the cost based on age not on whether you are linked to someone else's application. I hit Submit ...

I have an account in Citibank and I withdrew at Itau on Avenida Paulista many times. The limit amount R$750 R$12 fee.

As long as you confirmed the reservation through the My Bookings page, and haven't made a completely new booking, you don't have to pay the reservation fee. More likely the credit card transaction, that you see is only a hold and not an actual deduction. The hold should disappear in a couple of days. If not, then you can dispute that transaction with the ...

Swede's have the option to use the website Flygresor.se which can include the surcharge for a checked bag and also for climate compensation and payment method. The site only searches prices through Swedish travel agencies, not directly with the carriers. Because of this prices are only available in SEK and support is very limited. The airline selection ...

You can always check the Kampuferry website for their fares and information. Keep in mind the port facility charge and fuel surcharge, which are settled only in cash and collected directly at the counter of the company at the time of check-in, both in the Shimonoseki port and Busan port. On that website you can also read about the Passenger Tax for ...

Transit visa fees vary depending on whether you applied for: Direct Airside Transit visa (DATV) - £35 Visitor in Transit visa - £64 https://www.gov.uk/transit-visa If you both applied for the same type of visa, you should have paid the same fee.

In almost all cases, United requires "new money" for the change fee. ie, the change fee does NOT come out of the value of the ticket/credit, but you are required to pay the full cost of the change fee, and you will then get the full value of the credit. In the example you've given above, you would need to pay United $200 dollars, which would then unlock ...

Most likely what you have paid is a "deposit", which in this case happens to be for the full amount of the stay. If you were to check-in, they would deduct the deposit you've paid from the room cost, and thus you would end up not having to pay anything as you've in effect already paid for the room. If you cancel, or if you fail to check-in, then they will ...

It looks like you have applied for the wrong duration of the visa, and in cases like this the result is usually that they approve the application for the correct duration but keep the application fee. The guidance (pdf) says Periods of grant Partners: We will grant leave in line with the expiry date of the Main Applicant’s leave, except where the ...

For additional background for people who may be looking to do this, I recently purchased tickets using this same method on Frontier Airlines (which has a similar charge), and came across two complications. If you need to purchase baggage, realize you'll lose some of the savings, as you cannot purchase it at the lowest price (typically $30 for the first ...
