Anyone used? Phuket Forum #buy #travel #insurance


anyone used

This type of special deal is exactly why I used last time. I check their site every few weeks, and they have these specials every now and then. It s not a mistake, but there may not be a whole lot of rooms at that price. I ve noticed other sites (eg often come down to their price in the next few weeks after seeing the special deal. I figure they must all check each others prices, or get offered the same deal from the Hotel. Didn t happen last time, no one even came close, so I just booked with hoteltravel. Very happy. If it s what you are after, just book it.

Seems to be a lot of good prices floating around at the moment. It could be the current political trouble in Thailand. The Hotel owners may be scared of suddenly having no cash flow if things get out of hand in Bangkok. Happened last time too.

Hoteltravel have a price match guarantee if anyone else beats the price (good luck with that, they didn t do it the one time I tried, said they didn t get my email. ).

    Before starting out on their first major expedition (an 18-hour drive to Florida from their home in Springfield, Ohio) with their 2-year-old and 4-year old, the Larsons hung little numbered tickets above each boy’s car seat, one for every hour of the trip. “They were redeemed for wrapped treats they could play with or eat along the journey,” says mom Therese. “They loved pulling down the ticket when I asked in my conductor voice: ‘Tickets, please!'”

    Easy Travel Toys

    -Uninflated balloons (to blow up and bat around at airports and rest stops)

    Goa and Kerala Honeymoon Packages for the Newlyweds

    Honeymoon is the best time for the newly weds to acquaint with each other from a close range. Bonds forged in the early stages of married life remain strong throughout, and form a basis for happiness and joy in the years to come. The Goa tour packages are designed to leave the couple in embrace of each other and discover the meaning and significance of togetherness. However, Goa is a favorite tourist destination for people of all ages.

    The honeymoon packages allow the newlyweds to make the most of sea and sand. There is a lot of pampering through complementary services and floral decorations to throw in a romantic atmosphere which allows love to blossom. Kerala is another destination in India which is famous for pristine natural beauty and verdant surroundings. The main attraction of the honeymoon packages in Kerala though, is a stay in the houseboats in Alleppey. The calm waters of the rivers and the pristine lakes in this beautiful Indian state are ideal for living close to nature in luxury and opulence.

    The house boats with cozy and comfortable furniture and facilities offers a perfect ambience for a romantic sojourn for the newlyweds. The sumptuous cuisine filled with indigenous flavors is popular among tourists. The fresh water fishes form a delicacy which is a must savor under any circumstance. However, you can ask for international cuisine,  if mild spices delight your taste buds.

    Those who wish to give a kick-start to their lives together will love the beauty, tranquility, solitude and romance of both Goa and Kerala. Your Travel Parter for India

    Annual Travel Insurance #gorilla #travel

    #annual travel insurance

    Annual Travel Insurance

    Like a package plan. a worldwide annual travel insurance plan delivers comprehensive protection for all the trips you take ‒ all year long.  Some annual trip insurance plans are renewable.

    What makes worldwide annual travel insurance unique?

    Many travelers like the convenience and economy of a worldwide annual trip insurance plan, which is similar to a package plan but covers the traveler for a full year.

    Same worldwide coverage for 12 full months

    The reason many travelers like an annual trip insurance plan is the convenience of having the same coverage for all their travel plans all year long. Most plans have a long per-trip length requirement (usually 70-90 days). One policy to read and understand; only one number to call for travel assistance services.

    Comprehensive and economical

    Annual plans are relatively cost-effective because the coverage for cancellation is low or not included (some plans offer optional trip cancellation coverage on a per-trip basis for an extra fee). Age is taken into account, but most annual plans run a couple hundred dollars per year, per traveler.

    Key difference is little to no trip cancellation

    The amount of trip cancellation and interruption coverage needed is determined by the total pre-paid non refundable travel costs at risk for a particular trip. With an annual plan, however, each trip during the year will have a different trip cost and the traveler won’t likely know all those costs when they purchase their annual plan.

    This is why trip cancellation and interruption coverage is very limited in annual plans and may only be available for a flat trip cost amount (such as $1,000) and it may only apply to a single trip during the annual coverage period.

    Why would you need Annual trip insurance?

    The following explains why certain travelers need an annual travel insurance plan.

    • You are taking multiple worldwide trips in the coming year and you don’t want to have to research and purchase travel protection for each individual trip.
    • You have a medical emergency and seek care in a foreign country.
    • You have a serious accident and need to be evacuated to a medical facility.
    • A hurricane shuts down travel and you don’t want to sleep on the airport floor.
    • Your checked luggage has been badly mangled by the handlers and you need replacement clothing.
    • Your checked bags went one way while you traveled another and you need some essential items until they catch up to you.
    • You want to be sure your dependent children are safely returned home if you are hospitalized and leave them unattended.
    • You want the comfort of knowing that a loved one can visit you if you are hospitalized on your trip.
    • You want term life protection to care for your family in case a flight accident occurs on one of your trips.
    • You want travel assistance experts to help when you have a travel emergency or need concierge services.

    What coverage is included in Annual trip insurance?

    The following coverage is typically found in an annual trip insurance plan.

    • Coverage for emergency medical and dental care. including hospital visits, surgery, prescription drugs, doctor and dentist office visits, and more.
    • Emergency medical transportation so you can receive medical care for your illness or injury.
    • Reimbursement for unexpected lodging, meals, and transportation costs if your travel is delayed a certain number of hours (usually 6-12).
    • Reimbursement for lost, stolen, or destroyed baggage and personal effects (up to the policy limit) whether they are lost or destroyed by the airline, a taxi driver, a hotel employee, or anyone else.
    • Reimbursement (up to the policy limit) for personal essentials if your baggage is delayed a certain number of hours (usually between 12 and 24 ).
    • The comfort of knowing your dependent children will be flown home (with a chaperone, if necessary) if you are hospitalized an unable to care for them. Arrangements must be made through the insurance provider’s travel assistance services.
    • A bedside visit benefit if you are hospitalized or in critical condition on your trip. Arrangements must be made through the insurance provider’s travel assistance services.
    • Some flight accident insurance as a term life benefit to your beneficiaries if you are killed in a flight accident on one of your trips.
    • The convenience of 24/7 travel assistance services for help with medical emergencies, travel emergencies, business emergencies, pre-trip planning, and more.

    And some annual plans include:

    Who should buy Annual travel insurance?

    Travelers like these should purchase annual travel insurance:

    • Frequent travelers, such as business owners and academics. When much of your time is consumed by traveling for your work or study, it’s difficult to research travel insurance for each trip and much more economical to have one plan with consistent coverage you understand all year long.
    • Active, healthy, traveling retirees. You may have waited all your life for your retirement and want to put as many trips on the schedule as possible. Of course, you want the safety of travel insurance on each of those trips too.
    • Journalists and writers frequently sent on last-minute assignments. When you have to travel often at the last minute, there’s no time to understand, purchase, and review a single-trip policy. Plus, it’s useful to have the same coverage all year round so you know what to expect without having to sign up for new coverage every time.

    How much does Annual trip insurance cost?

    Most full-featured annual multi-trip insurance plans will cost a traveler around $200, depending on these factors:

    • The estimated number of trips
    • The estimated number of days for the longest trip of the year
    • The traveler’s age
    • The options chosen with the plan

    See 4 Steps to 100% confidence in your travel insurance plan for information about how to be sure you the the right travel insurance plan.

    Where should you buy your Annual travel insurance?

    You have two options for buying travel insurance – the best option is to compare plans from all companies, get quotes, and purchase your travel insurance plan online:

    All travel insurance companies include a free look period with a refund that lets you review the plan documentation. If you decide you need something a little different, you can make changes to your policy or cancel it for a refund (minus a small fee).

    Annual, multi-trip travel insurance. #flights #cheap #tickets

    #annual travel insurance comparison

    Annual, multi-trip travel insurance

    Compare cheap annual, multi-trip travel insurance quotes through our preferred provider, [1]

    Key points

    • An annual policy may prove cheaper than single-trip ones if you make more than one excursion in a year
    • Take care with the policy start date if you want to benefit from cancellation cover
    • Remember that there will be limits on the number of days covered for each individual trip
    • When taking out an annual policy think about the destinations and cover areas you need insurance for throughout the entire length of the policy, not just for your next trip

    If you’re taking a holiday or going on business, it’s advisable to take out travel insurance to cover you in the event of anything going wrong whilst you’re away.

    And if you take several breaks a year, it’s well worth considering getting quotes for annual travel insurance (also known as multi-trip insurance).

    An annual policy is, as the name suggests, taken out on a yearly basis and covers you regardless of how many trips you need to take.

    This is different to single-trip travel insurance. which covers you only for the duration of one break.

    Single trip v annual travel insurance

    Annual travel insurance tends to be more expensive than single-trip insurance, but it can work out to be more cost effective depending on the number of times you’re away from home.

    “If you’re lucky enough to have more than one holiday in a 12-month period, it may be that a multi-trip policy offers better value than selecting separate policies for each trip,” said’s Caroline Lloyd. Remember, though, that there are a number of important things to consider if you opt for a multi-trip policy.

    Take care with cancellation cover

    Some people delay taking out an annual policy until the day their holiday is due to start, meaning that the cover will last longer into the following year, but this can be a costly decision.

    Need more information?

    By doing this you’ll be missing out on valuable cancellation cover that can insure you against the unexpected in the build-up to your trip.

    “Perhaps above anything else, it’s worth noting one key point with annual and single policies – the start date of the cover,” said Lloyd.

    “For single policies your cancellation cover starts from the day the policy is purchased but, for annual policies, any cancellation cover won’t start until the policy date start, which you will be asked to specify at the time of purchase.

    “To be covered immediately for any cancellation, you need to select the purchase date as the policy start date.”

    Also take care if your annual policy runs out midway through a planned trip. In such circumstances it may be worth speaking to your insurer, but it’s unlikely you’ll be fully covered.

    Instead, you may want to consider taking out a new annual policy running from the date you book the holiday, or a single-trip policy to cover the particular excursion you’re planning.

    How many days are you covered for?

    Note that on an an annual policy there’ll almost certainly be a restriction on the number of days each individual trip can last. Insurers commonly offer cover for a maximum of 30-45 days a trip but some include cover for up to 60 days.

    If you’re planning an extended trip, then you may want to consider long-stay travel insurance or specific backpacker cover .

    How to buy multi-trip travel insurance

    If you search for travel policies using, the first question you’ll be asked is whether you want single trip cover, annual (multi-trip) cover or dedicated backpacker insurance.

    Look very carefully at the excess you have to pay, as insurers will often use this as a way to create attractive, cheaper policies

    Caroline Lloyd,

    You’ll be asked when you want the policy to start. remember that if you have a trip booked already and you want to benefit from cancellation cover you should start your policy as soon as possible.

    You’ll also be asked what destination(s) you require cover for and should remember to consider all the places you think you may travel to in the duration of the policy. If, for example, you’re going to Europe next but you plan to travel to the USA later in the year, you’ll need to factor this in.

    Also try to think ahead when you’re asked whether you need cover for winter sports. business trips and/or cruises. Again these may not be relevant for your next trip, but you may need such cover during the course of the policy.

    You may be able to add extra destinations and/or winter, business and cruise cover later on by contacting your insurer, but it’s likely that you’ll have to pay an extra premium and, perhaps, an administration fee.

    Choose whether you need cover for an individual, family. couple or group, then declare any pre-existing medical conditions before proceeding to the results table.

    “Look very carefully at the excess you have to pay, as insurers will often use this as a way to create attractive, cheaper policies,” said Lloyd.

    “Premium or gold policies will typically offer higher levels of cover and lower excesses. They may also include additional cover elements such as missed departure cover, which gives you cover in the event that you are delayed on your way to the airport, through traffic or a breakdown.

    “Not leaving early enough or sleeping through the alarm doesn’t count though – I’ve nearly done that myself!”

    When you see an option you like you can click through for more detailed information on the policy and, if you’re happy, proceed to purchase.

    This is the default welcome page used to test the correct operation of the Apache2 server after installation on Debian systems. If you can read this page, it means that the Apache HTTP server installed at this site is working properly. You should replace this file (located at /var/www/html/index.html ) before continuing to operate your HTTP server.

    If you are a normal user of this web site and don’t know what this page is about, this probably means that the site is currently unavailable due to maintenance. If the problem persists, please contact the site’s administrator.

    Configuration Overview

    Debian’s Apache2 default configuration is different from the upstream default configuration, and split into several files optimized for interaction with Debian tools. The configuration system is fully documented in /usr/share/doc/apache2/README.Debian.gz. Refer to this for the full documentation. Documentation for the web server itself can be found by accessing the manual if the apache2-doc package was installed on this server.

    The configuration layout for an Apache2 web server installation on Debian systems is as follows:

    • apache2.conf is the main configuration file. It puts the pieces together by including all remaining configuration files when starting up the web server.
    • ports.conf is always included from the main configuration file. It is used to determine the listening ports for incoming connections, and this file can be customized anytime.
    • Configuration files in the mods-enabled/. conf-enabled/ and sites-enabled/ directories contain particular configuration snippets which manage modules, global configuration fragments, or virtual host configurations, respectively.
    • They are activated by symlinking available configuration files from their respective *-available/ counterparts. These should be managed by using our helpers a2enmod. a2dismod , a2ensite. a2dissite , and a2enconf. a2disconf . See their respective man pages for detailed information.
    • The binary is called apache2. Due to the use of environment variables, in the default configuration, apache2 needs to be started/stopped with /etc/init.d/apache2 or apache2ctl. Calling /usr/bin/apache2 directly will not work with the default configuration.

    By default, Debian does not allow access through the web browser to any file apart of those located in /var/www. public_html directories (when enabled) and /usr/share (for web applications). If your site is using a web document root located elsewhere (such as in /srv ) you may need to whitelist your document root directory in /etc/apache2/apache2.conf.

    The default Debian document root is /var/www/html. You can make your own virtual hosts under /var/www. This is different to previous releases which provides better security out of the box.

    Please use the reportbug tool to report bugs in the Apache2 package with Debian. However, check existing bug reports before reporting a new bug.

    Please report bugs specific to modules (such as PHP and others) to respective packages, not to the web server itself.

    Argentina is Cheap Again (If You Follow This Advice) #hotels #and

    #cheapest way to travel

    Argentina is Cheap Again (If You Follow This Advice)

    When I put out the first edition of The World s Cheapest Destinations at the end of 2002, Argentina was one of the best travel values in the world and it stayed that way for quite a while. Reeling for a huge banking collapse and currency crisis, the local peso went from parity to the dollar to a rate of three to the dollar when the dust settled, without any change in prices.

    After a while though, even though the exchange rate kept widening, inflation galloped even faster. As tourism picked up and hotels were able to fill their rooms, rates for those went up as well. With an inefficient and pricey airline system, combined with very long distances for buses, eventually Argentina drifted out of budget travel territory and I had to drop it from the book when doing updates.

    This is a country that can t get out of its own way though and you can almost bet money that every 10 years they re going to be in trouble again. That time is now. They have defaulted on debt. robbed the public pensions, strangled international business, and practically outlawed a whole range of imported goods. It keeps getting messier and nothing is working as intended though.

    Another Collapse, but When?

    The prevailing wisdom from people who live there is that one of two things will happen before the next election at the end of 2015.

    1) The government and economy will collapse, the opposition will come in and make rescue moves, and in a few years they ll get all the credit for the turnaround. The current government won t regain power.

    2) The current government will somehow keep limping along and will stay in power long enough to hand the whole mess off to the opposition, then the old guard can blame the whole mess on the opposition since it will take a while to turn things around. Then eventually the pendulum will swing and they ll be back in power.

    Either way, few are predicting good news on the horizon anytime soon. There are so many red flags right now that it s hard to see anything positive to point to.

    There s one big red flag though that s really a gold one for travelers: a dual exchange rate for those with dollars.

    Official Rate vs. Blue Rate

    Nobody wants to call the real exchange rate a black market rate, so they re calling it a blue rate to make it sound prettier. The official rate is a little more than 8 to the dollar. The real rate you ll get on the street is more than 15. This rate is so open that it s printed in the newspaper and you can look it up online each day.

    What this means for you the traveler is this: cash is king. Forget the ATM, forget using your credit card. For both of those you re going to get the lousy official rate. You can almost double your spending power by bringing cash.

    Your Argentina-bound carry-on bag

    Yes, I know this goes against everything you ve learned about safety, theft prevention, debit card back-ups, and the like. But really, you are better off acting like a mobster and coming in with rolls of $50 and $100 bills (clean and recent of course) than you are trying to use plastic. Then you simply exchange these dollars for pesos and use those pesos to pay for your now-much-cheaper hotel rooms, restaurant meals, and bus tickets. Use those pesos to shop for now-cheap leather goods and to buy good wine for cheap.

    If you do this, you ll be copying what the wealthy Argentines are doing now. The country has slapped a 35% international travel tax on anyone leaving the country to try to stem the outward flow of money, but it s not keeping the rich from traveling. That s because they can easily justify it as a business expense: they ve stowed their money in Montevideo, Panama, or Miami. So it s a banking trip. It s also the only way they can shop for items not made in Argentina: the import restrictions have gotten so tough that most of the best-known international brands have pulled out of Argentina. The ones who stayed are having to buy buildings to have something to do with their profits since they can t get them out of the country.

    In short, its a big mess. But when there s upheaval, that s often the best time to visit. You have a hard currency in a land where that hard currency is extra valuable.

    Just be advised there s one big expense you can t get around: the hefty reciprocity fee to enter the country. Chile dropped it recently, but not Argentina (or Brazil). You need to apply in advance and pay $160 per person if you re American, $92 if you re Canadian, and $100 if you re Australian. Stay a while to make up for this tax on tourists.

    Annual Travel Insurance Quotes #travel #agents

    #annual travel insurance

    Buy travel insurance and get 2 for 1 cinema tickets

    Every Tuesday and Wednesday for a whole year with MEERKAT MOVIES

    Comparing annual travel insurance

    So why might you need annual travel insurance? Well, it can be essential if you travel often. People often buy a travel policy to cover them for their holiday abroad once a year, but it can work out cheaper to buy annual cover if you go away twice a year or more. This is sometimes also called multi trip travel insurance.

    More generally, it’s essential to have travel insurance as it should protect you if things go wrong.

    What does travel insurance cover?

    The main purpose of travel or holiday insurance is to cover you for cost of medical treatment abroad – which could go into thousands of pounds. It could also pay for you to be transported home in an emergency.

    Policies do vary from insurer to insurer, but most should include emergency medical treatment costs to cover things such as hospital charges and ambulance fees. They usually also cover getting you home after medical treatment abroad, if you can’t use your original tickets. Often you’ll be covered for the costs of a friend or relative staying with you while you’re treated, or flying out from home to support you if needed.

    Your policy can also cover you if you lose your baggage or other possessions (or they’re stolen), and refund you if the trip has to be cancelled or cut short (cover will vary depending on provider).

    So is it going to be cheaper for you to buy an annual policy or a single trip travel insurance? It actually depends on a few things, so the best way to find out what would work best for you is to do a travel insurance comparison.

    Where are you going?

    When you compare travel insurance you first need to decide if your policy needs to cover you just for the UK, or for Europe, or the USA, Canada and Caribbean. You’ll need extra cover if you’re going to the USA, Canada or Caribbean, or anywhere further beyond. So if there’s a chance you will be going somewhere exotic, it could be worth including that in your annual policy.

    Some people think that they don’t need travel insurance if they have a European Health Insurance Card (EHIC). If you need medical treatment while travelling within many European countries, the EHIC means you can get treatment on the same basis (maybe free or at a low cost) as people who live in that country. However, it will be on the basis you get taken to a public not private hospital. In the event of an emergency you will be taken to the nearest hospital.

    But the EHIC isn’t a substitute for travel cover – it wouldn’t pay for getting you home or other costs linked to your medical emergency. They are also date-specific, so check the expiry on your card before you travel. Be aware too, that not all European countries recognise the EHIC. Also some policies will waive your excess if you have one.

    Outside the EU of course there’s no EHIC, so it can be more expensive again to get medical support.

    A final point on where you’re going. Your travel insurance won’t cover you if you are travelling to a country that the Foreign Commonwealth Office (FCO) doesn’t consider to be safe. If you’re not sure, check the FCO website.

    Who are you taking?

    Your annual travel insurance could just be for you, or you could buy it as a couple, or cover your family or a group.

    If you’re including other people, you will need their dates of birth and details of any medical conditions they might have, to get an accurate quote.

    What will you be doing?

    If you’re going skiing or snowboarding, or taking a cruise, or your trip is for business, not all policies will cover you. With winter sports there’s more risk of injury, while cruises need specific elements like cover for being confined to your cabin, or an emergency airlift to hospital. If you’re travelling on business (and your company isn’t insuring the trip) not all general policies will cover you. We’ll ask you about these elements as part of our quote information.

    If you’re planning on being adventurous on your travels, you might need to check whether things like bungee jumping, white water rafting or lion taming are covered in your policy – should you need them.

    How’s your health?

    From an insurer’s point of view, if you have a health condition it could mean you‘re more likely to need medical help while you’re away. Because of this, some conditions might make your insurance more expensive but this isn’t always the case with all conditions.

    It’s important that you do list any medical conditions and give insurers all the information they need because, if not, you might be charged more by your insurer or not be covered. If your insurer discovers that the medical emergency on your trip was linked to a condition you already had, they could refuse to pay your bills or add a cost.

    To get you a list of quotes, we’ll ask you a few questions about your health and get you to add in the names of any medical conditions.

    Compare and save!

    Next you’ll get a page full of travel insurance quotes. These are listed in price order with the cheapest travel insurance at the top.

    You can also see all the main details of each policy – how well it’s rated by Defaqto, the amounts of medical, baggage and cancellation cover and what excess you would pay if you did make a claim. You can filter your results to only show those over a certain limit, if you like.

    To find out more about what is and isn’t included in the policies, click each one for more details.

    Once you have found a travel insurance quote that suits you, click the button to go through and buy. But do make sure you read all the details. We hope you never need to claim, but you should make sure you have the right cover, just in case.

    Don’t forget, if you buy your travel insurance policy through us, you will benefit from the fabulous Meerkat Movies! You can get 2 for 1 cinema tickets on Tuesdays or Wednesdays, every week for a whole year.* A great reason to choose us for your holiday insurance.

    AMD Kaveri – graphics performance on par with Radeon HD 7750

    AMD Kaveri – graphics performance on par with Radeon HD 7750

    CPU Chipset – Published on Friday, 17 February 2012 12:07 Written by Jacob Hugosson

    We look forward to the launch of AMD Trinity this Summer, but have already acquired some new information on the successor. Besides the third generation Bulldozer architeture it will sport a graphics processor on the level with the just launched HD 7700 series.

    We know that AMD is planning to launch the third generation APU in 2013, Kaveri  – a processor with integrated graphics, and once again it will raise the bar for such a circuit. Kaveri will be the first product from the company that will make the memory non-exclusive, that is processor and graphics circuit will be able to share the memory. No matter if it is graphics built into the motherboard or the processor, the graphics processor has had to allocate a certain amount in the past. In practice it means that all RAM will then be available to both processor and graphics circuit.

    Documents from AMD have revealed specifications for Kaveri, which at first sight reminds us of a recently launched circuit. Besides third generation Bulldozer architecture “Steamroller”. it will get 8 GCN units, which is the exact same as Radeon HD 7750.

    Luxury Link reviews #international #air #travel

    #travel auction sites


    Rating: 4.3/5 (3 votes cast)


    I just purchased my first hotel stay through luxury link auction feature.

    I read online that if you use the buy now option you can submit changes to your dates for a small fee however, since i bought this using the auction feature does anyone here know if i too will be able to submit a change in my reservation dates? The original ones I booked will definitively not work.

    Rating: 4.0/5 (5 votes cast)

    My experience with Luxury Link was terrible!

    I won the bid for an awesome 4 night stay in Marrakech and was told I would have confirmation for my booking in 2 days. 2 weeks went by and I did not hear from them so I had to call them which is expensive as I live in the UK. So they said they would call me back in 20 mins and an hour went by and guess what. No return call! So I called them back again and they said that they cant get hold of the hotel but in that 2 weeks I had had no contact from them to keep me informed! I also emailed them 6 times in that 2 weeks and no reply!

    So 6 weeks on I managed to get them to agree to a refund and they said just send an email to confirm this which I did straight away. Its now been 21 days and still no refund! I called them an spoke to a rude lady called Dena who was not apologetic and sarcastic when I asked for an apology.

    I can understand its not there entire fault that they cant get hold of the hotel but then Marakech is the same time zone as the UK so if I can talk to them why cant they? Im more annoyed that I wasn t kept up to date and had to ask for an apology and I still have no refund!

    Major storm expected to snarl Northeast holiday travel. #travel #agents #australia

    #holiday travel

    Story highlights

      Rain or snow expected to cause travel problems in the Northeast Tuesday, Wednesday “I-95 corridor may end up being the dividing line” between snow, rain, meteorologist says American Airlines is waiving rebooking charges for travelers using 18 Northeastern airports AAA expects 46 million people to travel over Thanksgiving, most since 2007

    If you’re heading to the Northeast for Thanksgiving, you might want to get an early start.

    A nor’easter is expected to pour heavy rain or snow on that part of the United States late Tuesday and cause problems on Wednesday, traditionally the busiest travel day of the year, CNN meteorologists say.

    “All of the major metro areas in the Northeast will be impacted by either heavy rain or heavy snow, along with high winds,” said CNN senior meteorologist Dave Hennen.

    He said it’s too early to predict which metro areas will be hit hardest, but airport delays are predicted Wednesday in New York City, Philadelphia, Boston and Washington, D.C.

    “The I-95 corridor may end up being the dividing line between heavy snow and heavy rain,” Hennen said. “Either way travel in the Northeast will become dangerous, especially interior sections of the Northeast with heavy snow.”

    International Air Tickets

    Select Your Flight Destination

    For USA Flights (Domestic) >> Airline Tickets

    Take advantage of our excellent negotiated low airfares.

    For many travelers, the airline ticket is the biggest cost of their trip, especially for those going on long international trips, so it makes sense for many of us to find a reasonable price from the Travel Agency.

    Find, book and pay for cheap flights worldwide. Flight reservations in first, business, club and economy class are all possible with international airline reservation system. All air ticket rates are subject to availability and not guaranteed until confirmed.

    Major Airlines:

    Malaysia Airline, American Airlines, British Airways, Cathay Pacific, Qantas, Eva, Malaysia Airline, Singapore Airlines, Continental Airlines, Emirates Airlines, Air Canada, Air India, Ethiopian Air, Lufthansa, Kenya Airways, China Airlines, Thai Airways, United Airlines, Air France, Alitalia, Czech Airlines, Korean Air, Northeast, Delta and Korean Air.

    It’s wise to make sure you know the total price of your airfare, including taxes and fees, and then checking airline or Travel Agency for the same flight to make sure you have a lower price.

    Airlines sell discounted Air Tickets to consolidators, who in turn sell them to travel agencies or directly to passengers below prices advertised by the airlines themselves.

    Cheap Airfare Tips

    • Traveling on weekdays traditionally costs less if your travel plans are flexible.
    • Buy your air ticket as far in advance as possible. Air Fares are often lower when purchased 15, 30 or 45 days in advance.
    • Try the prices on at least 2-3 airlines. Sometimes the price differences are enormous. Remember to discount the difference for a potential loss of frequent flyer mileage points. At times you may not get full mileage points with certain discount airline fares.
    • Book travel during holidays, or other peak periods, as early as possible to get the best promotions and deals.
    • Try a connection or one stop or 2 stop flight. They are sometimes cheaper than the nonstop direct flights.

    Seen from above, the Maldives look like amoebic tufts floating in a vast petri dish.

And no newspapers. More

    This small island nation, off the tip of India, is made up of 1190 small coral islands grouped into 26 atolls and has the smallest population of any Asian country.

    STAFF REPORT: Penang and Langkawi, Malaysia

    Our key accounts manager, Daniel, recently got back from a one week trip to Malaysia. Here s his thoughts on what Penang (Georgetown) and the island of Langkawi have to offer!

    Who do you think the two areas suit?  Whilst both destinations will suit almost everyone, I think Georgetown is an ideal destination for couples with its history, junk shops and interesting architecture. Langkawi is a brilliant family destination gorgeous beaches and very family friendly.

    What were your stand out experiences? In Penang, we spend hours trawling the Lorong Kulit Flea Market where we were the only tourists, really. My wife and I have a passion for antiques and curiosities so it was a brilliant place to satisfy our hobby. In Langkawi, we went on a kayak tour through the northern mangroves which was a fantastic glimpse into the islands natural beauty.

    Would you go again? Absolutely my wife and I are already planning a return to Penang in October! We re visiting friends in Singapore so will head over to Penang for a few days after that. We both agreed that Malaysia is our new favourite destination in SE Asia.

    What did you eat?  So much street food! Satay, char kway teow (fried noodles), laksa (soup) as well as numerous lovely curries. Malaysia has an incredibly rich tapestry of different migrant communities (British, Indian and Chinese especially) so eating in the country really has a fantastic blend of flavours and concepts.

    How was it, budget-wise?  Very cheap, relative to the UAE. Our lunches typically cost about 10dhs each, beverage prices were low as were accommodation costs. Our gorgeous rice paddy villa in Langkawi cost around AED400 per night including breakfast and that was on the higher end of hotel prices there.

    Daniel flew Qatar Airways/Malaysian Airlines Dubai Doha Kuala Lumpur Penang and then flew Firefly between Penang and Langkawi.

    Return flights from Dubai to Kuala Lumpur start from around AED1,800.

    Hotels: Chulia Mansion in Georgetown, The Gemalai Village in Langkawi.

    Airline Seat Maps, Flights shopping and Flight information- Best Airplane Seats

    #airline travel

    Travel Tips and reviews by SeatGuru

    Cheap Flights

    Do you have the G-Factor?

    Your journey – and your flight – matter and who better than SeatGuru to make sure you have the best one possible. No one knows cabin comfort like SeatGuru: we’ve been helping travelers choose the best airline seat for over ten years. And now we’ve condensed all our knowledge into our new Guru Factor (“G-Factor “) rating so you can choose the best possible flight for your journey. The G-Factor gives you comprehensive yet clear information about what to expect from the overall flight experience.

    With our newly launched flight comparison search engine, SeatGuru not only finds you the cheapest flights but just as importantly gives you our G-Factor recommendation for each flight option. We’ll tell you which itineraries score high on legroom and comfort and which ones don’t. Each flight from the SeatGuru price comparison engine has been run through the new G-Factor algorithm (patent pending) and comes with our straightforward recommendation: “Love it “, “Like it “, or “Live with it “.

    The G-Factor recommendation is based on the following:

    • An overall comfort score based on the type of seat, seat pitch, width, and recline for each cabin
    • Data from over 45,000 user comments on more than 700 different aircraft configurations
    • Our comprehensive customer service and satisfaction ratings for hundreds of airlines
    • In-flight entertainment such as seatback TV, live satellite, and other audio and video options
    • Onboard product offerings such as WiFi, seat power ports, and other additional amenities

    The G-Factor algorithm condenses all of the above and more – it is our secret formula used to calculate our SeatGuru G-Factor recommendation for each flight: “Love it “, “Like it “, or “Live with it “.

    For those that believe the journey does matter – we’ve created the G-Factor to make sure you have the best flight possible.

    Maldives Travel Guide

    Located just south of the Indian subcontinent, the Maldives are a gorgeous chain of islands in the Indian Ocean-Arabian Sea area consisting of 26 atolls. Travel to the Maldives and see why the islands have become so popular in recent decades (especially as a honeymoon destination) and why Maldives travel is always an unforgettable experience. The Maldives are well-known as a world-class diving destination with crystal blue waters teeming with a diverse array of ocean life. There are also plenty of private bungalows and resorts abutting the islands’ white, sandy beaches, though in recent years cottages and apartments in the Maldives’ major towns have become more prevalent. Of particular note is the islands’ capital, Malé, which sits at the epicenter of Maldivian culture and features dozens of colorful pastel buildings and great local restaurants. Visit Maldives and take in its vibrant local life, which has been influenced by the cultures of adjacent nations like India, Thailand and regions of the Middle East, and yet remains wholly unique. Let Travel + Leisure’s Maldives travel guide lead the way.

    Things Not to Miss in the Maldives

    • Go scuba diving or snorkeling and explore the islands’ gorgeous coral reefs or view them from within the popular Whale Submarine

    • Explore Addu City, the southernmost city in the Maldives and its second largest town

    • Plane hop from atoll to atoll by chartering an air taxi

    • Spend the day touring the National Museum

    • Eat traditional Maldivian food at the islands’ many hotaa’s, or cafés

    Air Travel Health Tips #discount #air #travel

    #air travels


    How can I improve plane travel?

    Most people don’t have any problems when they fly, but it’s possible to make airplane travel safer and more comfortable. Here are some tips:

    • Carry enough of all of your medicines to last your whole trip in your carry-on luggage. Ask your doctor whether you should change your dosages if your eating and sleeping times will change at your destination. Take extra medicine with you in case your return trip is delayed.
    • If you have diabetes or epilepsy, carry a notification and identification card (such as the Diabetes Alert Card from the American Diabetes Association). Have the name and phone number of your doctor with you in case of an emergency. Remember to bring along the names and dosages of all of your medicines.
    • The air in airplanes is dry, so drink nonalcoholic, decaffeinated beverages and water to avoid becoming dehydrated.

    What can I do about jet lag?

    • Get plenty of sleep before you leave.
    • Don’t drink a lot of alcohol.
    • Eat well-balanced meals.
    • Avoid overeating.
    • Exercise as much as you can on your trip.
    • Use sleep medicines for only a few days.
    • Get used to a new time zone by going along with the local meal and bedtime schedules.

    Melatonin may help with jet lag, but no one knows how long it can be used safely. Tell your doctor if you plan to take melatonin or any other herbal or alternative medicines.

    What about pain in my ears?

    If your ears hurt when you fly, try taking a decongestant medicine (such as pseudoephedrine) before you get on the plane. You can also swallow often and chew gum during the flight. Babies can suck on bottles or pacifiers during the flight.

    What else should I do?

    Even healthy people can get blood clots in their legs after long flights. Try to walk every now and then during your flight (unless the crew tells you not to). It also helps to drink water, stretch your calf muscles while you’re sitting and wear support stockings.

    If your doctor wants you to take oxygen when you travel, remember to tell the airline about this well in advance of your flight. The airline will probably provide oxygen for you for a fee. Federal air regulations don’t allow you to carry your own oxygen unit on a plane. You’ll have to make arrangements ahead of time for oxygen at your destination and also for layovers between flights. You can also arrange for special meals or a wheelchair ahead of time if needed.

    It’s dangerous to fly immediately after scuba diving. You’ll need to wait 12 to 24 hours after diving. Ask your doctor or diving authorities for guidelines on flying after scuba diving.

You define the parameters and we will make sure that you get exactly what you are looking for. easily created, reliably delivered and for the best possible price.

    Around 90% of all good safaris in Africa are arranged through specialist travel companies such as ours. Any medium to high quality safari should be intimate, personable and highly tuned to meet and exceed your desires and expectations. That experience starts right here.

    We pride ourselves in helping our guests to travel beyond the kinds of safaris offered by mainstream travel companies.

You name it, we’ve done it. Between us we now have over 100 years of experience building safaris, so we really do know what we are doing. And we really do love nothing more than sharing that experience with our guests.

    At heart we are still a small company. We are owner-run and have fewer than thirty people on our team. But in the intimate world of safari, that’s relatively large, so we have all the advantages of preferential relationships with lodge owners and safari operators, enabling us to provide you with elevated levels of service and the best possible prices.

    We work with guests across a very wide range of tastes and budgets, from tough pioneering expeditions into uncharted territory to super-luxury safari in some of the world’s finest lodges, from as little at USD2500 per person to family and larger group trips in excess of USD100,000.

No obligation, no hard sell, just real safari people doing what we love.

    Maldives Travel Tips #vegas #travel #deals

    Maldives Travel Tips

    George Fisher/Maldives Tourism Promotion Board

    Keep in Mind.

    • Off the resort, it’s a different place While you’re lounging blissfully poolside at your choice luxury property, be aware that locals (the staff who are currently serving you) endure a much harder lifestyle. Be courteous and mindful of their customs.
    • Respect Islamic tradition The Maldives is a conservative Muslim nation, where you’ll find plenty of mosques and very little alcohol beyond the resorts’ borders.
    • Communication may be tough The official language is Dhivehi, which originated from Sinhala the dialect of Sri Lanka. Most people in the hospitality industry will know English, but you should be patient with their speech.

    Picture it: A private villa stands over crystal blue water; days finish with orange sunsets that make you hungry for local citrus; gourmet room service and a masseuse are on call to avoid any unnecessary trips from your porch; and the only thing to make you want to leave is the breathtaking coral reef and underwater creatures that demand a scuba session for a proper introduction. This is the Maldives.

    If you don’t want that clich Caribbean beach getaway (The Bahamas ) or that trendy South Pacific retreat (See Bora Bora ), you should venture to the Maldives. However, getting to and staying in this tropical paradise requires patience (i.e. no direct flights from the states) and plentiful cash. Located between the Arabian and Laccadive seas, roughly 500 miles southwest of Sri Lanka, the Maldives is about as isolated as you can get (or would ever want, anyway). And while the country’s government and economy has recently been in flux, the sublime nature of this paradise has stayed constant in the dreams of travelers.

    How To Save Money in Maldives

    • Choose Flights Wisely Airfare from the States is incredibly expensive and one of the key reasons why the Maldives has not become an American tourist hotspot. If you can pair a vacation here with one in the Middle East or Europe (where you can catch a direct flight), the cost will be less ludicrous.
    • Pick Accommodations Carefully “Budget” accommodations don’t exist here; even the low-end hotels are sumptuous and advertise hefty price tags. So avoid the most expensive properties because food, drinks, and excursions there will also cost an arm and leg.
    • Consider All-Inclusive Packages Rates that include airfare, hotel stay, and meals may be your easiest and cheapest bet.

    Maldives Culture Customs

    The Maldives has been an Islamic nation since the 12th century. With this rich heritage, you ll find religious traditions entrenched in the culture. Mosques dot the capital of Male’. and you ll see some men and women dressed in very conservative attire. Should you wish to visit a mosque, you too should dress accordingly; however, be aware that some mosques are closed to non-Muslims. You’ll also notice people praying in public at certain times throughout the day. Be respectful by lowering your voice and not walking in front of those who are praying. Most of these visible cultural and religious traditions have been extracted from the resorts. However, particularly during Ramadan, expect to witness some Islamic customs, such as local restaurants closing for the daytime when the population will be fasting.

    Maldives Dining

    The lavish dinner entr es that you’ll sample at hotels are nothing like that of local meals. When you’re in Male’, try dining at a local eatery to sample the cuisine only if you have a hearty stomach. Some travelers report sickness after consuming local food because they haven’t allowed their digestive systems enough time to adjust to the cuisine. You’ll find that fish and rice are two staple dishes of the Maldivian diet.
