    Sundowners Tours denying refund without large fee

    Our Sundowners tour late August departure was cancelled, with the company invoking force majeure. That was to be expected. We had paid deposit of about $4400. They proposed to offer a travel credit with a 10% bonus, usable by mid 2022. That didn't suit us so we asked for a refund as per the...

    Ships and Planes (sorry no trains)

    Not often do you see ships outnumber planes to this extent. Couple of screenshots just now of our part of the world. There are a lot of ship crew out there moving between countries even with borders "closed". I hope the protocols at ports are being managed appropriately. ng between

    Ads on AFF Home pages and articles

    Hi, I paid my subscription to AFF, with one of the reasons being to kill the ads. However, when I go to "Home" page it is plastered with ads. Also if I go to the articles listed there. One particularly annoying aspect of the embedded ads is they have differing dimensions, so when they change...

    Answered 2 wheel cabin bag - so hard to find

    This might start the 2 v 4 wheel arguments, but I want / need a new "international" sized cabin bag and I would like a 2 wheeler, under 2kg and robust enough to be occasionally checked. Looking around the luggage stores and even online it is all 4 wheels. Any suggestions ?

    Qatar - Doha "First Class" lounge

    In economy on Qatar with a 6 hour connection at Doha, and was offered paid access to "First Class Lounge" @ around $120 pp when I made the booking. Seemed reasonable for a rare experience if it really was a "First Class" lounge, but it isn't. When you look at the Qatar website it only mentions...

    Will be departing Venice VCE on Emirates J next month. I found out a friend will coincidentally be on same flight in Y. I understand Emirates use the "Marco Polo" partner lounge. Can anyone advise if I can take a guest into an Emirates lounge in a situation like this?

    We have been to NYC a number of times as our daughter has been studying there for last 5 years. At first you start with the obvious attractions, and progressively explore various neighbourhoods and looked for the less obvious. We are heading to NYC twice this year. While checking latest...

    USA ESTA asks for social media IDs

    Had to renew my ESTA for an upcoming visit and noted the form now asks about your presence on social media. I am assuming this is fairly recent as the questions have not yet appeared on at least a couple of those agency" sites that helpfully offer to take extra money for your application. It...
