For the Czech and Austria vignettes they don't need your plate number, I suspect the others will be the same. When I got them near the border, they punch out the date on the spot.

Getting separated is inevitable. Nowadays, everyone has a phone and even if you're a cheapskate like me, it's worth spending $0.25 to send a text. But cheaper still, as some cities have free wi-fi,...

I would drop off luggage in hotel and take car to dropoff location. You don't need a car in Nice, but if you think driving in Monaco is a must do, then keep it for a day. There are large parking...

I stayed at the B&B Hotel Nuremberg-City. As I recall it was high on tripadvisor, inexpensive (69 euros in Dec 2013), and just across the street from the old city wall. I think it took 10-15 minutes...
