You are being hit by one of the great joys of the airline industry known as 'Married Segment'. Most airlines price flights based on the origin and destination of the travel, not based on the individual flights. ie, in this case they are charging you as if you were flying from YVR to SAN, regardless of the fact you're actually flying via DFW. The "base ...

If I were you I'd be prepared for an early morning. Other attractions I have visited offering free passes on a first come first served basis usually tend to attract massive queues hours before the opening of the ticket office. This also send to be true for the Washington Monument: NOTE FOR SAME DAY TICKETS TO THE WASHINGTON MONUMENT: If you plan on ...

There are multiple Antilope Canyons you can visit. Examples are: Upper Antilope Canyon: https://navajotours.com Lower Antilope Canyon: https://lowerantelope.com Antelope Canyon X: https://www.antelopecanyon-x.com During the summer the more popular are very crowded. (There are some nice videos on YouTube showing how uncomfortable it is for the visitors). I ...

The statement that the cited website is the official website for Antelope Canyon tours is false. I found a list of companies which offer tours to Antelope Canyon (note that the prices listed in the table are not accurate as of today). It looks like one can almost always find availability for any date since there are more than 10 companies organizing tours.

Just to fill out the options mentioned in comments. There are two routes available: one served by East Midlands Railway from London St Pancras and one from London King's Cross served by London North Eastern Railway involving a change at Doncaster or Retford or possibly Grantham (I did not do an exhaustive check) onto a Northern service to Sheffield. The ...

jpatokal’s answer is absolutely correct when buying from a ticket machine outside the ticket gates, for example the ones that are close to the people-operated counters. However, if I already entered the ticket gates with an IC card and then attempt to buy a same-day Shinkansen ticket at the transfer station, this option is not available. These machines will ...

Skyscanner is another that provides email alerts for price changes, I also use it to find the cheapest flights for any given route as it compares all available flight combinations for you, and if you are flexible about your dates you can view the search in month mode see the price for that route every single day, sometimes you can save significant amount by ...

Try logging in Perhaps you made an account on the site you bought your ticket from. Try logging in and seeing if you can see the ticket there in your profile. If you can, you should be able to do whatever you need to do to access it (print it or transfer it to the app if it's an eTicket, or get the code to print it from a machine if it's a Tickets on ...

I'd say buy your tickets as soon as you are sure you want to travel on that day. While sometimes prices drop dramatically, most of the time they drop only a bit and the early buyers are getting better prices. I have no experience in South America, but as you need to travel to those events, I would not trust there to be cheap tickets.


2

If the price drops rapidly, it can be risky to wait till less than a week before your flight. After all, you may end up paying even more, but it's your choice. A good idea is to create price alerts on a few websites like Google Flights and Skyscanner and buy the tickets immediately when the price starts dropping/when you see they are at a reasonable or ...

According to National Rail Enquiries, there are no train services on Christmas Day, 25th December, and limited services on Boxing Day, 26th December. There are two key web pages you should use to check your specific journeys, the Journey planner and Future engineering work. Unfortunately, a lot of the more disruptive engineering work is scheduled around ...

Some airlines even enable you to "check-in" multiple times online or in their mobile app, and give you the option of changing your seat each time you do. Subsequent "check-ins" after the first one are really just updates of your check-in. If you look at your boarding pass, there's usually a "sequence number" (often marked SEQ, but sometimes just a 3-digit ...


7

No, but it is not considered as a double checkin. You have the same seat and the same sequence number. You only print your boarding pass twice.

Have done this so many times, with many, many airlines. I often check in online in case I'm delayed by traffic etc, at least I've bought myself some time - but if I get there on time, I too like to get the actual boarding pass. Also for 18 months I worked for an airline in Australia, had to fly regularly and we'd regularly reprint, change, update and ...


2

No. I do this all the time. Reissuing boarding passes is routine; they're easy to lose, after all.

In 2017, I traveled to India on an eVisa, and did not have my ticket booked before my application. You can also see the sample form here, and it's not required.


2

Yes, although you'll need to collect the tickets first and take them to the ticket office. It doesn't need to be the station of departure, any ticket office will be able to do so. Although consider that whatever problem lead RailEasy to be unable to reserve may also effect the ticket office. Remember not all trains are capable of being reserved. Source: ...

I am not sure about the link you have posted, but this is the official website for the Indian eVisa https://indianvisaonline.gov.in/evisa/tvoa.html The official website will ask you about the date of arrival, the port of entry and duration of stay. However, you can arrive on a different date as long as it falls within the duration/validity they have ...

Contact easyJet Customer Service if you want to get it done. If you decide to do so, prepare a solid explanation of why you need to do it and what's the relationship between the two accounts involved. If you're also trying to get the passenger's name changed at the same time, easyJet will likely suspect that you're trying to re-sell the ticket. You'll have ...

This isn’t allowed, according to the Ts&C’s paragraph 6.5: You cannot resell your ticket to someone else. We reserve the right to cancel any Booking, without a refund, if we reasonably believe it may have been resold or made available for resale (including, but not limited to, via any online marketplace). (From the comments)

As your post was written the 13th of September, at this time there were many rains and floods in the east of Spain and a lot of trains were cancelled. When this happen, the Renfe web page is not working properly and it is better if you call to Customer Support and buy the tickets with them. Other option is to travel by bus, you can use this web www.alsa....

Advance tickets are indeed non-refundable; this should have been made clear when you were sold the ticket. The date and time on an Advance ticket CAN be changed prior to travel (usually for a fee), but not the destination. However, I echo the confusion of others about why you needed to buy a new ticket — your route from Manchester to Heathrow will ...

@fkraiem's excellent answer covers most JR trains that are all-reserved. I will add information about all-reserved trains run by non-JR companies. There are few limited express trains operated by non-JR railroad companies, and a majority of them are all reserved. Most of them are not of too much interest to most travelers, but can be very useful to some of ...

I have travelled on the ÖBB Nightjet from Germany to Switzerland, and can confirm that indeed they require a printed ticket. I suspect that the reason is that on long international trips the ticket may be checked multiple times, as crews are changed, and with a paper print the first conductor can just stamp it, thus signalling to subsequent ticket checkers ...

I would like to suggest you to use Oyster card, it has so many advantages over the Travel card. Note: Oyster cards are not valid for travel between Oxford, Reading and London.

This company explicitly states family as parents and child, and since you're in a homophobic country that requires and male and female parent to be acknowledged

Yes it's legal. Their family is defined as parents of a child, I imagine you're not 12 or under, and your aunt is not your father.

I'd say no - the prices didn't seem to be changing at all for Jadrolinija. But, if you want a specific date or cabin then you should book in time. I don't know about SNAV since I haven't travelled with them. One could make some better research and actually check the differences.
