Re: France: Cameras are watching more than speed

Amateuremigrant ·
I'm very wary of surveillance when it applies at an individual level. However, traffic, often high speed traffic, has to be regulated (Highway Code) for us to expect to survive most journeys. Who is it that would object to bad driving being scrutinised ? They may well be grateful some day that someone else's misdemeanour has been noted. if you mindfully do that stuff, you shouldn't. And if you won't behave among the rest of us, then maybe you shouldn't drive.

Re: How do you buy your travel?

PHeymont ·
A reminder I used to post on other sites...when you book through an agency, with OTA or brick-and-mortar, the next step is to ask them for the airline locator number (that 6-digit string that goes on your reservation). With that code, go to the airline's site and search for your reservation...doesn't matter if you didn't book it with them directly, you'll be able to find it with the code and your name. If not, call the airline! The reason for all this is to make sure that the agency did its...

Re: Airbnb: 1 Night Free for New Users, Andorra new top choice

PortMoresby ·
Given the way the system works, I don't believe it concerns the hosts at all who will be paid for all nights. The promotion is, I have to believe, at the expense of the company and not the individuals with listings. Since there's a promotion code, it should all take place at the website level when booking.

Re: Airbnb: 1 Night Free for New Users, Andorra new top choice

PHeymont ·
I'm lost folks. Is the confusion resulting from the brief comment with the news clip? If so, I apologize, although it seems to me to be a pretty good replication of this quote from the original document, which they copied from an Airbnb press release, by the way. " First-time Airbnb guests who book a trip between January 13-17 for travel by March 31 , for stays of at least two days, will receive a one night discount (up to $300 ) on their trip." I don't see why "over one night" is clearer...
