Not only is this possible, it would be my preferred way of doing it. Scotland has very good rail and bus connections, and the railways run through some of the best scenery and over some of the most spectacular bridges in the world. What's the point of renting a car and leaving it in a parking lot while you hike? Using public transport also means you can do ...

Normally, you do not blindly believe a sat navigation sending you to that pond ahead at the end of the road. Similarly, tracking systems of public transportation have mostly supplemental value. From people who understand them more in depth I know that many scenarios of incorrect indication can happen: the vehicle broke and but it remains assigned (logged in)...

As many as you would like (and physically possible) within the zones chosen (some night buses and trains may require additional supplement). Like your own link says With a monthly travelcard you can travel as often as you like in the zones you have purchased.

I don't think there are any "SBB zones". This is not an SBB zone or ticket. It's a Z-Pass travelcard. Z-Pass is a grouping of several unified fare networks around Zürich's ZVV: Zürich's ZVV A-Welle Ostwind Schwyz-Zug Each of those fare networks/regions cover public transport in their respective regions, usually operated by many different ...

When your ticket expires, you become a hare exactly at that spot. It does not matter that the ticket was valid when you boarded. Buy another ticket from the driver, SBB app on your mobile phone, or, if the service is frequent, pause the journey and buy at stop. They will fine you also if the ticket is formally valid right now but will expire before reaching ...

10 April 2021 update: The COVID 19 situation in the UK has pretty well quieted down. The problem is now in the Netherlands, and basically in much of continental Europe. There are restrictions, requirements to have test results to come into the Netherlands but the situation is such that the UK people are told not to travel yet. So while we could travel in an ...

Navigating central Tokyo by car is an expensive, confusing pain, so the Japanese solution is to take the train out to the general area you want to explore, then rent a car at the station. JR's Ekiren service (aka "Trenta", as in train-rental-car) is the best way to do this, and they often have promotional packages that combine train tickets and ...

See https://www.zvv.ch/zvv/de/abos-und-tickets/tarif/verbundtarif-und-richtlinien/preisgestaltung-nutzung-gueltigkeit.html . Should I be fined or is this okay? Depends on when you present your ticket. The 24 hour ticket's validity starts when you first stamp it and it's validity ends 24 hours after the stamped date and time. When you show the ticket to a ...

I believe the Zonenplan Z-Pass should cover the zones of your pass. (also part of this brochure - page 8 in the PDF, labeled 16/17 on top) From what I can tell, the zones of interest for you will be in the red and blue sections. A map that covers all of Switzerland is something I'd appreciate too. Unfortunately, that's being made quite difficult because of ...

There is definitely a ferry service to Comino, on a recent trip I remember seeing ferries from Gozo to Comino. I found this company (no affiliation) that looks like it's currently running and offers ferries from Gozo to Comino. You can view the departure times here: Departure From Comino Blue Lagoon 08.15 am Comino Blue Lagoon 09.15 am Comino Blue Lagoon 10....

Travelling around Scotland by public transport or hitchhiking is possible. But as one comment said, Scotland is big. It can take 3 or 4 hours to drive Edinburgh to Inverness, It is about the same by train, and trains in the UK are generally expensive if not booked in advance. Hitchhiking is of course free, but could take a long time (and sometimes a lot ...

With only 4 days, it will be a problem. As other answers have said, Scotland is a big place. If you're flying into Edinburgh, I would recommend spending those 4 days doing a thorough job of exploring Edinburgh. There is a lot of history in the city, so it will keep you plenty busy enough. For hiking, climbing Arthur's Seat is an iconic part of a trip to ...

As for the ticket you can get a 9 o'clock day pass at the ticket machine at the station in the Airport (the machines are on the floor above the rails). It is valid on all trains, busses and trams within the ZVV area until 5am the next morning. If you take one of the special night busses/trains running after midnight you need to get an night supplement for ...

How long should I allow for, to clear Passport control and baggage reclaim ? Very difficult to predict, but it also doesn't matter. Assuming you are going into London, you have three options: Heathrow Express, TFL (formerly known as Heathrow Connect) and the Piccadilly Underground Line. None of these require you to pick a departure time up front. The ...

If you download the pdf schedule at the link you provided, you will see three bits of 'rider info' that are applicable: When flagging a bus along the route, choose a safe location where the bus driver can easily see you, can safely pull off road and where you are not at risk from other vehicles. Ok, so you can flag the bus, you don't have to get it at an ...

There are at least two taxi services. One says: Kuukkel Taxis serve all kind of transportion services. We have two spacious taxis, each of which can accommodate 8 passengers. A covered trailer for transporting goods is available additionally, if required. From us you can get Airport transfers, local transfers: to all accommodation destinations, Saariselkä ...

You can try taking a local bus, but it does take a bit of planning. They are almost always on time, and pretty easy to use. Some of them are pay by trip, and others are pay by distance. You can tell depending if you get on the bus from the front (pay by trip) or the middle (pay by distance). If you get a pay by distance bus you pick up a ticket when you ...

Driving in Japan is easier than you imagine it might be, though I would hesitate to drive in Tokyo. The car I rented in Hokkaido in 2016 had navigation in English (I had to specifically request this option when booking), and I needed an International Drivers Permit. The navigation interface was a little unusual relying on phone numbers or points-of-interest ...

Hi all thanks for your answers The timing does matter, I should have mentioned that I have an onward train Journey from Kings Cross to Newcastle while I realise I don't need a timed departure from Terminal 2 I do have to catch a specific train at Kings cross as flexi or buying on the day was looking like too much of an expensive option for me. A friend of ...

Its pretty much impossible to give suggestions without knowing how experienced you are at walking and camping, but here is my 2 cents. Setting realistic expectations, if you are starting in Edinburgh, and you want to go hiking in Scotland's more famous places, like Glen Coe, Fort William, or Aviemore or wherever, then it will take you about a day to get ...

Renting a car would result in a rental car road-trip of Scotland and you would see less. reserve the money from the car and spend it on trains and hotels and hostels. Like that you can go wherever you want and stay for as long as you want. I'd want to walk along the Scottish coast for a couple of days and the mountains a couple of days and spend some time in ...

As @Bernhard Döbler has already pointed out this a regular RMV connection. Weekly ticket is 41 Euro, monthly is 140 Euro and yearly is 1377 Euro.

In the Zurich public transit regulations that someone else linked to, the only section I can see that would extend validity beyond the time printed is this: Compound tickets are valid until the last scheduled stop that can be reached before the end of the validity period. If a journey with a combined ticket valid for up to two hours cannot be made directly ...

Finnlines has instructions for foot passengers on its website: https://www.finnlines.com/ferry-trips/contact/harbours-and-driving-instructions/travemunde It contains the following mention: Please be aware that there is no walkway from the Lübeck-Travemünde Skandinavienkai train station to the Skandinavienkai Terminal.

I'm not aware of any such scheme for Mallorca. Public transport in Mallorca can generally fit into 3 categories - EMT buses which are local services around Palma, CTM buses which are longer distances buses across the island and rail services. CTM don't seem to list any form of unlimited travel passes on their website (https://www.tib.org/en/web/ctm/bitllets-...

Belated, but yes: there are different options to reach Comino island either from Malta or from Gozo, and obviously for the way back. Ferries or - more easily - smaller touristic boats are chartered or scheduled by private companies, often offering both the choices of a "taxi" service (only taking passengers to Comino and back) or an additional tour ...
