I second Berend for the options of public transport. Very convenient, reliable and not too expensive. If you do prefer to drive yourself and prefer to be flexible, you might find using a car sharing platform easy. In downtown Amsterdam, you'll find car2go for example. It's a bunch of cars to share which are parked throughout the city. These you can use to ...

It would depend on where exactly you need to be in those places. But if staying in a hotel near Amsterdam Central Station is a must, it would probably make sense to use public transport. The public transport planner for The Netherlands is called 9292. There is a direct train to Hoofddorp, it's a 22 minute ride and costs € 5.30 per person, one way. And you ...

You can check if your BahnCard has been correctly canceled online: Go to https://www.bahn.com/en/view/index.shtml, login with your username/password. Click on "All BahnCard Services" under "My Bahncard services" approximately in the middle of the page. This is where the webpage always switches to German for me. There is a menu item "Informationen zu meiner ...

I just used Stasher.com to store a few bags. They have a few locations just outside Sants - was so easy, just booked and paid online and then dropped my bags off! Have used Stasher elsewhere as well and always had a good experience so fully recommend for whenever you need luggage storage.

Looking at the TRTC website's ticketing page there does appear to be a one-day unlimited ticket available for NT$150: You can choose when to activate the pass. Once activated by scanning at the gates, it is valid for unlimited travel on the Taipei Metro until end of service on the same day. Valid for one passenger at a time only. So it looks like this ...

The accepted answer that you linked to is concerned with a different case, namely that the train is marked as "please take a different train" in the on-line schedule. In this case, the "Zugbindung" (ticket is valid only for a specific train) is not automatically cancelled and you have to take the train if you don't want your ticket to become void. If a ...

In general, this is driven by the practicalities of rail travel. First let's exclude cases where the passenger has missed the train. When the carrier imposes a restriction that the transport will only work on a certain run (like nearly all airline tickets), and the carrier refuses to provide transport on that run... then the carrier is obliged to provide ...

The chances of you being "denied boarding" are very low. There is no pre boarding check, nobody is standing at the door counting passengers. So there is nobody to deny you boarding. What is possible is that the train is physically so full that the train cannot leave, and when it does happen it usually escalates to the point where a train will be ...

What I read on the Dutch version of the 'buy your BritRail M pass' page is that you can enter your date of arrival in the UK till about 6 months after arrival. You may have to adjust the arrival date by hand but when I tried that was possible. There is however a rule that you may only use such a pass if you are in the UK for 6 months or less and may be ...

CDG-Zürich is not an easy one by train, honestly. Trains from Paris (center) to Zürich use the LGV Sud-Est, go through Dijon, then on to the LGV Rhin-Rhone, Mulhouse and Basel (red on the map). They still take a bit over 4 hours. Most trains from CDG going in that general direction either run on the LGV Est towards Strasbourg (blue), or the LGV Sud-Est down ...

You can use the DB site, to get an overview which trains are departing at a given station in a given time frame: https://reiseauskunft.bahn.de/bin/bhftafel.exe/en If you click then on a train number, you get the schedule for that train with all stops and times. On that page, the "ICE" category includes TGV, Thalys and other high velocity trains.

Not sure whether this is what you are looking for, but this link seems to work for me. Basically you can enter your "From" and "To" place directly on https://www.sncf.com/en. Unless you can catch the 18:23 in Paris (which should arrive in Zurich at 22:26) you might be better off with spending a night in Paris and taking the TGV leaving 07:23 on Jun 13th to ...

“Paris Pass” appears to be a third-party product that bundles the official Paris Visite pass with a few extras. Given that Paris Visite is rarely worth it, because it's a lot more expensive than passes for just transportation, it's probably not worth it either, but it depends on how much you'll travel. When passes advertise huge savings, keep in mind that ...

Pigneto station is fully open and operational, and so is line C from San Giovanni to Monte Compatri/Pantano (and not only on Wikipedia, but also in real life). I know that personal experience and personally often using that station is not a formal source, but I wonder what I can do more. Taking some photographs there, perhaps? A confirmation comes from the ...

One-way tickets in Switzerland are valid for the whole day (unless you buy a specific Supersaver Ticket), so you can easily buy it online a few days before you arrive and take the printout with you. What you need to know though is whether you are going to take the connection where you change trains in Lausanne, or the one where you change trains in Renens. ...

This is a difficult metric. I’m not sure my answer will be the best, but I was on a regularly scheduled rail line in Baikanur that was very short - maybe 1500m. It was a passenger rail, it was not connected to another rail, and it is extremely difficult to gain passport/visa to visit Baikanur as a tourist. I don’t know if it even has a name but it ...

In Spain smoking is prohibited in all public/collective transport premises. That includes open-air stations. Usually there will be warning signs and ashtrays at the limit of the area, but not always. It's also prohibited in closed spaces where workers can be present. This includes bars, restaurants and clubs.

You can only transfer ticket to your close relatives. For friends, its not applicable. https://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/city/allahabad/Now-you-can-transfer-your-train-ticket-to-your-loved-ones/articleshow/7845239.cms

I think the Train of the end of the world near the southern end of South America qualifies quite well. It's not connected to any other trains (the network of Argentina having been largely dismantled) and is in a very remote place. It is also the southernmost railway in the world.

How do you even prove something like this? Marrakech is 1083.12 km from Zouérat and both are on different railways. In the north, the railways connects to Tunisia but it ends at the Lybian border and it's more than 1400km from Gabes, Tunisia to Sallum, Egypt so the 1083.12 km is the shortest distance. Even the most remote northern railways in Finland and ...

According to Wikipedia line C is open, and as of May 2018 it is no longer unconnected from lines A & B since there is now transfer to line A at San Giovanni station. So you're probably OK.
