I have recently found that almost every flight (Apart from higher priced ones) are informing me i must layover for upto 23 hours. I have never had to do this before and i have some questions from those who have had to do this.
I am going to India for about the 7th time and the cheapest flight i find uses KLM that goes to Amsterdam. It is roughly 15 hours layover to India .
(Q 1) Does my luggage transfer to my connecting flight. IE: I do not need to pick it up and slug it about ? Obviously, i may need to leave the Airport (See Q2) and do not wish to slug that about, too.
(Q2) If i leave the airport, via a Taxi, waht is the SP regarding return to the Airport?
What i mean is this: When we arrive at a terminal with our bags, the SP is common. Issue of tickets, loading luggage for flight and so on. We then make our way to the gate of departure. So, do i simply enter the terminal and by pass all that and make my way to my gate as stated on my Ticket?
(Q 3) How do i go about money to pay taxis and such? I would have some UK pound with me but i would have to exchange it for EUs? And the damn exchange rate and fees,
)(Q 4) What are the prices of Taxis from and also too the airport?
(Q 5) does anyone know of any cheaper flight sources that do not force me to wait more than 5 hours at an airport?
I would like to know people#s thoughts and ideas on this matter as it is new for me. I will not go asleep, even in a Hotel. I suffer from High Anxiety and simply will not be able to sleep until i land in Jaipur two days after my first flight. Yeah, i WILL stay awake.
