I have a few questions about flying internationally, it is going to be my first time, and I have sort of an anxiety problem about things. Because I am flying alone, for the first time ever.
My trip is: CLE - ATL Continental
ATL - FRA Lufthansa
FRA - EDI Lufthansa
EDI - EWR Continental BOTH ON CHRISTMAS DAY
EWR - CLE Continenal
First question is where will I have to go through customs? Because I read that since the UK uses Pounds still that I will have to go through customs in FRA and EDI. And other people told me that I won't have to go through customs until I get to EDI. My layover in FRA is 3 hours.
Also what are some things that countries say you have to "declare"? I'd rather not get arrested in another country.
And finally, my uncle let me use his miles for the trip to help lower the cost of it. (He bought the tickets under his name and miles and put my name and passport # as the traveler.) How does that go about? I am nervous that it could screw me over somehow. I heard if you use miles and my flight gets cancelled and/or I miss it, then I will be screwed.
If you have anymore advice it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
