perthuycharsupp : I was arrested on Feb 7 2012 on a bogus false charge. I bonded out on Feb 8th. The DAs office did not file a bill of information are even accept the charges till Aug 2 2012.I have read that they have 150 days to file a bill of information. mine went way beyond this. Due to the fact it took them that long to file anything does it give me a good chance of having my charge dismissed? I've written the 3rd circuit court of appeals asking for a dismal. A private investigator was hired as well and only came back with circumstantial evidence due to a old charge in the past for which I had been on probation for :( any insight into this would be greatly appreciated!! can one be taken to trail based ONLY on this kind of evidence, and can I fight this based on how long it took them to file a bill?

jgoodlikegp : Your ordinary bank debit and credit cards are fine for that sort of thing.
If you need cash, just go the nearest ABM machine.
For anything else, pay by credit card.

But if you're using cash cards, make sure they'll be accepted in Canada.
Brand name ones like Visa or MasterCard are accepted by most places in Canada.
For example, MasterCard has nifty Cash Passport cards:

But keep in mind not every shop, store or restaurant takes everything.
So be sure to have at least some cash on you, just in case.

lupins : Do you have a credit card? Or a debit card?

Personally, when I travel, I try to bring only enough money with me in cash to hail a taxi cab or buy some food or drink at a small store or restaurant. Sometimes no money at all. Once I get to the destination, I go to the nearest ATM and withdraw what I will need for the next day or two, so I am not carrying a lot of money on me. Showing wads of cash in a foreign land are a temptation for muggers, pickpockets and others of their type. It says "Hey I'm a tourist, come rob me".

Pay for any hotel, rental car, and fancy restaurant meal with a Visa or Mastercard. Money from the ATM is for public transit and small purchases in stores.

Cash cards will work in Canada, just not necessarily the ones purchased in another country. For example, if you bring an American Visa debit card to canada, I'm not sure how that works because the money will have to get converted from US to CDN dollars. Usually that's handled by the bank associated with the credit or debit card.

If you feel more comfortable using a loaded cash card, Canadian currency ones are available at the airports or in just about any pharmacy here in Canada.

colemiliClipsp : The easiest is to just withdraw cash from an ATM while in Canada. It will come out of your own account, in Canadian dollars, and the exchange fees are pretty low. For larger things, use a credit card, which will be charged in Canadian dollars, and again, the exchange rates are usually pretty good.

Alibabamen : I am fairly newly restricted to a wheelchair. I can stand, transfer, no problem. I cannot walk. I've procrastinated but now for various reasons I really need to fly. I've gone to websites and read up on this but they don't really give you a FIRSTHAND VIEW of what this is like.

For example, where on the plane do they put you? In or our of your own wheelchair? (I assume out - I've seen the photos of those teeny chairs they use).

What if you are too wide (no, I am not obese) to use their chair?

You mean 3 flight attendants are going to be lifting me into, say, an aisle bulkhead seat in economy?

How do you get into the bathroom?

Do you use the bathroom with the door left open?

What if they change the plane from a bigger one to a smaller one?

Can the airline refuse to accept you?

Can the airline refuse to push you in your wheelchair (not motorized) a long distance to make a connection?

I live in a medium large town but it is not a hub: it uses smaller planes a lot (but still jet), flights overwhelmingly connect through places like Denver or Dallas which I know from my ambulatory days have long distances.

Are some carriers (United, American, Northwest) notoriously polite or rude at handling disabled wheelchair travelers?

Please, I would like to hear from people in wheelchairs that have actually done this.

NOTE: I don't expect each Q above answered! LOL I would just like some reality feedback from people in wheelchairs that air travel!

PHOTO OF THAT AIRLINE AISLE CHAIR: http://i44.tinypic.com/2wnrz89.png Looks miniscule.

Thank you!!

grearoriure : I've flown with h/c assistance with both United and Delta. I have never had issues with rudeness of assistants. They did what ever was necessary, and were incredibly polite.

There are certain amounts of help you can get. I had h/c assistance to and from the plane door, I could use crutches to get down the aisles on crutches. There are chairs available to get you down the aisles if you need them. Or there is help if you can't walk distances. You let them know at the time of your reservation how much help you'll need.

I made sure not to need to use the bathroom while flying when I needed crutches, the wheelchair assistants were pretty good about taking me to the bathroom between flights.

It has been awhile since I have flown on a flight, even with the smaller jets, that did not have a jetway. You can always call and ask
