are there any rules or restrictions for an international stopover?

Hi

I am not sure where to find this information online so I wanted to ask here,

Does anyone know if there are any rules to staying more than 24 hours on the international side for transit flights in airports?
for example, let's say I have a flight from Istanbul to Madrid to Quito with no luggage to check-in, with a stopover of 24 hours and 30 Minutes in Madrid. and no Airport Transit Visa is needed.

Should I prepare for anything if I'm not leaving the transit area or the international area for that duration? any rules by the airport?

Thank you in advance and would really appreciate the help.

Do you think its a good idea to bring a tent to South Africa/ Tanzania?

I’m leaving for my trip tomorrow and was curious as to if a tent was necessary given I’ve read mixed things. My friend and I are budget backpackers and we would do the safari’s with the sleep in a tent option if cheapest. But do these safari’s also give you a tent/sleeping bag? I would preffer not to bring mine if possible since its a lot of space but I would appreciate the flexibility of having one and if it could help cut down and some costs.

Abkhazia border open when entering from Georgia?

Hi, I'm an American citizen trying to travel to Abkhazia. Currently as of April 9th, 2021, Russia is currently closed to Americans. Georgia is open to Americans so I planned on traveling through Georgia to get to the Abkhazian border but I'm not sure if the border from Georgia to Abkhazia is open. The Abkhazian government website says nothing about the border being closed but I've seen travel blog websites last updated in January saying it was closed. And I've heard from a couple Russians that they believe the border is also closed from Georgia.

If anyone knows where or how to get this information please let me know. I would love to travel to Abkhazia.

Any would help would be appreciated. Thank you!

Do I have to organize a trip to Tanzania through a travel agent?

I’ve been fascinating about Africa for years and years. I can not wait to go (not now…lol.) I’ve never been to any African countries, I’m wondering do I have to book the entire trip through the travel agent? I do like nature activities, animal, wild life explorations, etc. I assume these places have to be directed by the touring other than driving there by myself, right? I’m a little bit in the hassle that I don’t know where to start. Can I book the ticket to Tanzania, staying at the hotel, then ask the front desk to introduce me some daily tours? Thank you, any tips help.

Is America a bad place to start my travels?

After college i want to travel the world while working, i plan for america to be my first destination but is it a bad choice? Is it hard to make money so i could eventually leave and hop to another country, or would a country with better wages be better for the first destination?

Does anyone have experience with a missed connections on Tap Portugal airlines?

I found a great deal on a flight but it has a super tight 55min connection in Lisbon. I know this is risky and likely cutting it too short. I called Tap to inquire about how they handle missed connections. I didn't get much confirmation at all from the customer service agent. He did confirm that Tap does not have any reciprocal arrangements with other airlines so they could only rebook me on another Tap flight and they would only cover the cost of the rebooking if it was due to a delay. No guarantee that they would cover the hotel and meal if I needed to stay overnight to catch the next flight. I'm worried that I'll have to book a new flight at cost if there's no delay on the flight but a long security and customs line that causes me to miss my connection.

I'm wondering if anyone has experience with a missed connections on Tap Portugal airlines? How did Tap work to resolve this?

Google didn't provide much info here. Thanks!

Anyone use WiseCar car rental?

Hi, were booking a trip to Hawaii from the US (domestic travel) and looking for a cheap car for 5 days. We stumbled upon wisecar on kayak but the price of the car for 5 days is way too low to be true. When we book through them the option said we would get a "surprise" car rental company after booking. After booking it said our car rental was Thrifty but when we called there was no reservation because our voucher doesnt even have a reservation number. It looks like half of the reviews online said they showed up and there were no cars available after booking.

Is this service legit?

Travel insurance company recommendations

I'm traveling to the Dominican Republic around august 2021.

The company I used to buy the trip doesn't offer any refund option if anything happens, so they recommended me to go with a travel insurance agency.

What company should I go to for travel insurance so I don't lose my money if anything happens?

reputable companies and cheap travel insurance as possible.
