[08/07/12]   Travel Tip Tuesday!

Flights: Paying too much for a flight is a huge pain, but sometimes it feels like there are few other options. Get Smart.

Before you go…
- Use Bing’s travel site with a fare predictor. You put in the dates and places, and the Fareologist will show you a break down of recent prices for this flight, advising if it’s a good time to buy or you’d be better off waiting.

When booking…
- Know the best tips to get the best prices - like booking on Tuesday 3 pm EST and searching for flights heading somewhere on Wednesdays, Saturdays, or Tuesdays.

If you want to travel to someplace specific…
- A friend who flies home to see her family often told me about Airfare Watchdog. You sign up for alerts for specific flights - let’s say New York to LA - and you’ll receive email notifications as soon as deals for that destination are available.

Cars:

If you’re renting…
- General travel sites like Expedia will search the best car deals but another route is to search through your company (or even holding/partner compaies) to take advantage of a corporate discount.

If you’re without…
- OffMetro is a great site for people living in the metro areas of NYC and San Francisco who are looking to get away without a car. They suggest places to go (let’s say you’re interested in accessing a few beaches in the area) and how you can get door to door via train or other clever, non-car ways.

Hotel:

Take your pick on where to rest your head…
- Sign up for reward points at any hotel you frequent. If you travel for work, there’s no question you should be taking advantage of this to get a few free nights later.
- Keep an eye out for deals by following Travel Zoo’s Top 20. Every week they publish the top deals from flights to hotels to entertainment. For our trip, I booked a fancy hotel at a huge discount price in the center or a major (i.e. expensive!) city.
- Save money with Bed and Breakfasts or hotels where breakfast is included. One less meal on the road, is money in your pocket.
- If you’re up for it, do a house swap. I had a friend who stayed here through AirBnB.

Entertainment:

What do do…
- log on to Trip Advisor, input your destination (Napa, CA) and up pops all the information you need to know about the attractions you can’t miss and the best hotels, all with experienced reviews from first hand visitors.
- Utilize the hotel concierge. I recently got a deal on show tickets through a hotel and the discount was better than any other published deal I found online.

Where to eat…
- Browse the foodie chat boards on Chowhound or search on yelp to get suggestions and reviews from the people who have experienced it first hand.
- Simply input your location (hotel, show, etc) and see what’s in the area via Google Maps.

[07/24/12]   Travel Tip Tuesday!

Save money by choosing the right airport! The three airports where prices were the lowest were all in California, with Burbank's Bob Hope Airport coming in as the cheapest with flights averaging $221. Long Beach and Fresno were two and three, with flights averaging $250 and $290 respectively. Rounding out the top five were two Pennsylvania airports—Harrisburg International ($304) and Lehigh Valley ($307).

Wondering what the most expensive airports were? New York's JFK came in fifth with flights averaging $678, followed by Kahului in Maui ($712), Charleston, South Carolina ($717), and Honolulu ($854). The top spot went to Anchorage's airport, where flights averaged a whopping $964!

[07/10/12]   Travel Tip Tuesday:

How Can I Avoid Seasickness?
Staying busy and keeping your mind occupied are the best ways to avoid seasickness. Try to stay on deck in the fresh air and focus on anything other than the moving ship. Take deep breaths and drink plenty of water. When on deck, facing forward (rather than to the side) seems to help most people. Remember that you need to let your brain adjust to this new unstable environment by allowing the horizon to act as the true point of reference.

Although drinking plenty of water is important, you also need to keep something in your stomach (although spicy or fatty food is not recommended). Lying down in a deck chair in the fresh air often helps many people; it's almost like you can sleep it off! Most modern cruise ships are equipped with stabilizers that eliminate much of the motion that causes seasickness. This is one time when bigger might be better-the larger the ship, the less it will rock! If you know you are prone to seasickness, try to get a cabin on the outside (with a window) and mid-ship where there is less motion.

[07/03/12]   Travel Tip Tuesday:

Cruising Etiquette
Even though your cruise ship may be bigger than your hometown, it's still one place where many people must coexist harmoniously. Be courteous and respectful of others by following these guidelines.

Dress Properly -Even if you're allergic to dress codes, do not show up to a formal dinner in jeans and flip-flops. The ship will have a code for each day, so learn it.

Keep Your Children Close - Kids, we all love them, except when they're someone else's. If you travel with your little ones please keep them under control, especially around pools and while passing through more adult-centered areas such as the casino.

Learn the Ship's Language - Your vessel is a ship and never a boat, and the ship is always a she or her. Left is port, right is starboard. Aft means rear or stern, while the bow is the front of the ship. The bridge is where the Captain and his crew control the ship, and only some ships have open bridge policies.

Save One Seat, Not All - While it's okay to save a seat for your companion, it's poor form to save a row of seats for your entire table. The same goes for deck chairs.

Follow Jogging Rules - Most ships post hours when running is allowed because passenger cabins are often located under the jogging deck and some people prefer to sleep at 6 a.m. than listen to your footfalls.
