While Tourist Israel is not government, it's a pretty reliable site and their page has this important note:
As of January 2019, Israel made a change to remove cash from bus transportation and use the Rav-Kav card exclusively.
OK so we need that card! Almost everyone will enter Israel either at Ben Gurion or Ramon so let's see where we can get a card ...
Seems wild to me that I couldn't find this info in English from the official sources. Here's a shot:
The regional transit authority, VOR, fares are valid on the vast majority of mass transit in the region:
All trains operated by ÖBB (S-Bahn, Regionalzug, railjet...)
Underground (U-Bahn) operated by Wiener Linien
Trams (Straßenbahn, "Bim") ...
Does the 48-hours ticket include train from airport to city center?
No. The 48-hour ticket, excludes the zone the airport is in.
If not, are there any ways not to buy separate ticket, but just
"expand" 48-hours ticket?
Theoretically yes. The 48-hours covers all of Zone 1, so you only need to buy a ticket from the airport to edge to zone 1. However, I ...
The 48-hour ticket for the "core zone Vienna" indeed does not include the airport (despite the "core zone" wording all other zones outside of Vienna have been abolished in favour of a distance-based fare system).
I would suggest that you download the ÖBB app (available in English), which allows you to specify that you already have a ticket for the core zone ...
Yes, The Cassiopeia is still used for tour excursion service from Tokyo. Tours are typically start a minimum of 100 000yen. See the below website (Japanese) for details and tours can be booked from the same website though keep in mind these tours tend to get booked up really quickly
and this ...
The RER vending machines will probably only accept coins and card payments and no bank notes at all. At the airport, there are however staffed ticket counters where you can buy a ticket and pay cash and get proper change.
So, after coming back from the trip I thought I would update.
As well as ticket desks, there are also a long row of ticket machines at Alges station, to ensure tickets can be bought 24/7. Tickets can be purchased from those machines, and must be put through the barrier to gain access to the platform of the station. Different types of ticket are available, ...
There is now a Rav Kav sales point at Ben Gurion airport, at terminal 3, in the arrivals hall, next to exit 2.
The Rav Kav website maintains a list of sales points with address and opening hours. I don't know how accurate or complete this information is.
You can also buy an anonymous Rav-Kav from a bus driver, with some initial stored value. (Note that ...
You can get an anonymous Rav-Kav on every bus.
Israeli here, you can buy an anonymous Rav Kav on any bus when you board it. It costs 5 NIS. In fact it's the only pay with cash when boarding the bus.
This is what it looks like (sorry for the poor photo quality from my computer). The "Dan" in the center is the bus company whose driver I bought it from and ...
If you want to have everything prepared in advance, you can also head to Ebay and purchase a Rav Kav card in advance by having it shipped to your home address. Some sellers even offer pre-charged Rav Kav cards, so you won't even need to top them up on arrival.
This is obviously a more expensive option, as all resellers charge a fee for their services.
You can buy a Rav-Kav at many central bus stations around the country, and the Tel-Aviv train stations. However, the opening hours for the train station Rav-Kav booths are annoyingly limited! (not sure about the bus station booths.)
Ryanair are often strict about enforcing arbitrary rules. The only kind of boarding pass which can be used on your phone for boarding a Ryanair flight is accessed using the Ryanair app. Using a PDF of the boarding pass may result in you being required to pay a £/€20 printing fee. Ryanair make a big proportion of their profit from levying fines like this so ...
I finally went there and yes, as stated in
JoErNanO's answer, you can visit the museum complex in the morning, go out and then come back in the afternoon to see Corte Vecchia with the same ticket without any problem. In fact, the time slot you select is only relevant for the visit of Castello di San Giorgio (but note this time is strict, so you wouldn't be ...
Super FASTPASS for September became available at a later date.
I was able to purchase it yesterday. I guess the initial inavailability (in June) was due to the different price policy for September - weekdays are cheaper beginning with the second week of September so maybe the powers that be had to look into the demand first in order to know what to offer (...
The general rule is that if you're sold a ticket on that itinerary and the itinerary no longer becomes possible, either due to a last-minute delay or cancellation, or something planned further in advance (but after you bought your ticket), you are allowed to travel on the next available train by the same operator, or to get a full refund. This applies ...
There is no time required to keep them. Throw them away whenever you want.
It is better to still keep them digitally, even in an old email.
Some uses for keeping them:
Travel record history
Bookmarks (paper only)
Claiming miles for flights
Future discounts (either on flights or other perks offered by the airline)
There are three options:
your travel agent is right,
the airline corrects it at little or no cost
the airline tells you it is alright as it is.
But to find out you need to call the airline. Go with what the airline tells you to do.
And better call sooner rather than later.
If it is the first, 'cancel and buy a new ticket' and the travel agent ...
As in most cases you do not need your boarding pass after entering the plane, keeping them for a few days after arrival should be enough. People mention keeping them till your air miles show up on your frequent flyer account.
Other reasons to keep paper boarding passes are to keep records of your flights, to show border officials you really left the ...
1: Some airline offers Siem Reap to Jakarta one-stop journey with one PNR. one PNR means one ticket that mean luggage will be auto transfer to next flight but its high expensive(Thai Air offer like this flight will cost 443$).
2: but if you book two separate tickets with two PNR you can find very cheap ticket near 170$. always remember no guarantee for ...
I was trying to do the same and had the same issues. I was booking a train from Barcelona to Amsterdam,
So Instead I opted to book out of a site called https://www.thetrainline.com/ which actually shows different train options. Please see if this works for your case.
Check this screenshot for more info. I have opted the same date as you mentioned. It is ...
If the PDF is a boarding pass, it won’t be accepted:
Hi Simon, we don't accept PDF boarding pass, you will need to print it out.
You have a few options:
Print your boarding pass at home or at the airport (for a fee depending by country)
Use the boarding passes on your phone (either in the app, Wallet for iPhone or Google Pay for ...
It is now possible to get a "Carte Enfant Accompagné" (accompanied (?) Child Card (?)) wich allows a designated adult to travel with children for a year at the cost of 30.- CHF.
I got one for each of my step-siblings and the only thing I needed was their ID/Passport.
N.B.: I'm Swiss as are my step-siblings and I'm holder of the "AG" (yearly or monthly public ...
