My girlfriend and I have spent several hours picking out places to stay from AirBNB listings in Copenhagen. It SEEMS like there are so many wonderful, available places to stay. But my booking requests (5 so far) have all been declined by the hosts. What's going on here? How do I get a successful booking?

What is the best way to give a gift card to help pay for plane tickets for domestic US travel? It can't tie the recipient down to a particular airline and it must be a gift card, so please don't tell me to give cash. That would obviously be best. posted by Xalf at 11:41 AM - 9 answers
My wife and I will be flying with our daughter for the first time this fall, on a cross-country journey to see grandparents and relatives who haven't met her yet.

The plan is set--now I just need to buy the plane tickets, and I don't know how to go about finding the best deal. [more inside] posted by Inkslinger at 8:06 AM - 12 answers

I've hatched a half-hiking half-not trip - taking a train from New York all the way up to the beginning of the Old Croton Aqueduct Trail, and hiking the whole thing back down to New York City. But I'm gonna take two days to do it, and am looking for a cheap hotel halfway along - in Tarrytown, Sleepy Hollow, or thereabouts. Any suggestions for a hotel?

What's the best way for me to get rid of it? Should I sell it or give it back? And if I should sell it, how? [more inside] posted by OrangeDisk at 11:49 AM - 7 answers

On Thanksgiving Wednesday, we'll arrive at the Philadelphia airport, probably at terminal F (US Airways) at 8:15 in the morning. We leave 80 minutes later, probably from terminal B (US Airways, again). No checked luggage, pre-cleared for customs, just pick up bags and run. Given Thanksgiving craziness and picking up the shuttle to C-16 so we stay inside security, is this still doable? When does it become Thanksgiving hectic?

My wife and I had to move our road trip to the Telluride area back a couple of weeks to the first week of October. I'm worried that we will be greeted with bare aspen trees! I know that the timing of peak color can change from year to year, so I realize that any advice is just a best guess.
So, are we in luck?
Thanks! posted by Don_K around Telluride, CO at 10:30 AM - 7 answers
If you're flying in to Reagan National Airport in DC with a baby and your own car seat, how do you get a cab to your hotel? Will the regular cabs at the cab stand be able to accommodate you, or should you reserve a car service or cab ahead of time? If the latter, can you recommend a company?
