      Private Drivers from Brasov

      Romania Yesterday

      Hi again

      Based on the answers to my earlier question regarding itinerary in Transylvania we have decided to go to Brasnov by train and stay two nights there and do day trips from there by private drivers.

      We will arrive 8 p.m. or later and want to leave early the next morning. Are the private drivers ordinary taxi drivers who we will find all over Brasov (we will stay close to the main square in the old town), or do we have to find a travel agency? We would like to arrange the transportation the the first evening, and not the next morning.

      We do also ONLY want to arrange and negotiate the transportation on site in Brasov, we do NOT want to make a booking online in advance.

      Thanks.

      BR

    • Flying into Rome, visiting Amalfi coast, with time share in Tropea

      Tropea Yesterday

      My fiance and I are planning our Honeymoon and would like to base it around a timeshare week in Tropea the last week of September. We plan on flying into Rome, spending a couple days there then driving to Naples where we would rent a car and drive to Tropea. We would love to spend time on the Amalfi coast/Capri/Sorrento but would have this week long time share in Tropea. We are planning on spending 10 days total in Italy. Can anyone give some insight on what the best way to do Rome/Napels/Tropea? Once in Tropea, would it be worth it to go back up to Naples for a day or two or should we get it out of the way on the way down to Tropea? Any suggestions on what we could do in the Tropea area for a week? We are on a budget and just want to make our trip the most efficient :-) Thanks for your help!

      London travel advisory - Bus strikes.

      London Yesterday

      I realise this is not a question and I have posted the information in the relevant London transportation page but I post it here additionally in the hope it may save travellers inconvenience as people may not see it elsewhere.

       

      Following a number of strikes already this month the Unite union have decided yet again to seriously disrupt public transport in London with a series of three strikes affecting the buses. They are planned for 5th, 13th and 16th February from 0001 hours to 2359 hours on each occasion. This will obviously have a knock-on effect on night buses both prior to and after the strikes.

       

      Travellers are advised to check and replan their journey if necessary. Details of how to do this can be found on the Government website

       

      http://www.tfl.gov.uk/

       

      As always, I shall update this if the situation changes.

       

      Hope this assists,

    • Can my husband pick up the luggage and check it in on next flight if I stay in transit?

      Gatwick Jan 27, 2015 at 9:36 PM

      Good Morning.

      We are travelling to St.Lucia from Dubai on Emirates flight and second connection is BA flight from Gatwick Airport (I believe same rules will be applicable as for Heathrow). Unfortunately there is no agreement between these two airlines so we will need to pick up the luggage (which means going through immigration) and check it in on the next flight ourselves.

      My husband is British National so he does not need a visa to go outside of transit zone but I do (I need to get it in advance due to recently changed rules regarding transit of my nationality and we do not have time for this).

      The question is can he pass through immigration, pick up the bag and check it in on BA flight if I stay in transit?

      We are landing and flying out from same terminal and will print boarding passes before we start the travel.

      The only worry is we have same booking reference and my husband is concerned ground staff might not let him to check in the bag (and possibly on the flight) if second passenger is not there (me).

      We tried talking to BA but without much luck so if anybody here can help with the answer it will be much appreciated as otherwise we will have to travel with hand luggage and both stay in transit…

      Important Notice: New bag restrictions

      http://www.coopculture.it/en/ is informing visitors, tour guides and school groups that for security reasons, backpacks, large handbags and luggage are not allowed inside the excavations at the Colosseum, Palatine and Forum in Rome.  Actual dimensions of allowable bags has not yet been determined for these sites but have been recently restricted to 30x30x15 cm (abt 12 x 12 x 6") or smaller at Pompeii, Herculaneum, Oplonti, Stabia and the Museum of Boscoreale so that might be a good guidline until further notice.

      Visitors to Rome are asked leave larger items at their hotel or check them at the left-luggage office at Termini. Additonally, if you have scheduled a tour at the Colosseum, Palatine and Forum, you're asked to arrive 30 minutes beforehand to ensure timely passage through security checks.
