  • Hi Funkel, If I understand your question correctly, you're flying to the United States and then booking a flight to Mexico once you're there? According to most travel agents and official government sources you do need an onward ticket. Sometimes a…
  • Angdrea, Most reports of the violence state that the resort areas are generally unaffected. Tourism is a big business in Mexico and as such it seems that people with businesses in resort areas have clubbed together and paid private security guards …
  • Liz_2010, A quick internet search on San Luis Potosi suggests that while it has been affected by the drug violence between mexican Law Enforcement personnel and Drug Trafficking Organisations (DTOs), it is one of the states (and towns) that has bee…

  • Hi Sarah, You're right about the news being preoccupied with the drug violence in Mexico. But it is still a wonderful place to travel to. The tourist areas tend to remain unaffected by the violence (which seems to be concentrated along the US/Mex…
  • Thanks so much Lesley - the IATA website and the Quantas ones both say that there's a departure tax, but then other sources say that it is included in the price of your ticket. It makes more sense for it to be in the price of the ticket because that…
  • Thanks so much for the info Lesley. The different reports from different sites were all quite confusing.
  • Hi Ina, I would recommend that you and your husband go to his Commanding Officer or another official from the US army and ask for their help as they would be best equipped to deal with this type of situation. Some rules don't apply as strictly to…
  • Hi Bobby, A quick google didn't reveal any results for the cultural holiday you mentioned. However, the only week long cultural holiday that I can think of in Italy in April 2011 would be the week around Easter. Have a look at our Public Holidays in…

  • Hi Lolly and Bon Voyage India, It seems you both may know Bangalore a little better than I do. Could you maybe recommend some good restaurants in the city? So far I have read good things about Samarkand on Infantry Road, Karavalli at the Taj Gat…
  • @Kashish, I it would depend on the reason yo were deported and if you went throgh any court system before deportation. I think geneally people have to wait aou 2 years before being allowed back into the country but I know of people that have been de…
