Road Trip Planning – Map Your Trip, planning a trip.#Planning #a

Road Trip Planning – Map Your Trip

This part of road trip planning can be really fun!

You’ve got your road trip partners signed up and your destination or part of the U.S. selected. Now it’s all about the route you’ll take. So, do you map it out online/use a GPS, or buy a map?

Planning a trip

The answer is: both. If you just have one you created online, you’ve got no room for flexibility. You’ll be nervous about going off your original route, or you’ll try going off of it and risk getting lost. If you can afford it, get a GPS system – TomTom and Garmin are the best – you’ll love it so much you’ll get to the point that you won’t know how you handled road trips before you got one. However, a GPS is not your brain – it cannot think outside its box! That’s where maps come in.

Once upon a time, my friend Melissa and I got lost in Michigan without a road map (and very little in the way of road trip planning) and there was nothing for miles but corn fields. That’s it – corn. No mini-marts or gas stations where we could ask for directions. No one drove by us while we spent a good half-hour hyperventilating sitting in our car where we had pulled off next to an unending wall of corn. We’d been driving for over an hour completely lost and hadn’t seen a single sign of civilization.

If you just buy maps for your route, you’ll have to wrestle with them constantly. I get nauseous when I read when the car’s moving – how about you? A simple printed out online map with driving directions combined with a GPS is the ticket (Google Maps and Yahoo Maps (opens in new window) are great resources).

Now, it’s not a real road trip if you spend the whole time on highways. Highways are boring. When my husband and I drive on the highway in our home state, North Carolina, all we see are pine trees. Snore!

All the interesting stuff and cool finds are on the smaller roads. When road trip planning, know that this is where the “meat” of your trip will be – where there are people to meet and things to see. Recently, on the way back from Wrightsville Beach, we decided to wing it and get off near Wilmington. I never expected to see old beautiful homes with Spanish moss hanging from all the trees – it was one of those great surprises you get when you leave the highway for the secondary roads.

For the best road trip planning of your route, I recommend the following:

  • First, select the sights you’d like to see along the way. You’ll want to do this first so that you can plan your road trip accordingly. There are a lot of guidebooks and websites out there to help you find them. I’ve written an article about guidebooks With a Grain of Salt: Guidebooks you might want to check out. As far as websites go, definitely give RoadsideAmerica.com (opens in new window) a look-see – they’re the best on the web and have lots of wild and wacky places to see.

  • Next, use your favorite online map to plot your route to include all sights. Google’s allows you to “drag” your route off of the highways it recommends. Try to get off the highways for some of the small towns along the way at the very least. You can still stay close to the highway and jump back on. Once you finish this step, you’ll have the number of miles you’ll be traveling for the Road Trip Calculator. You’ll also have an idea of how long it will take you to get there (most online resources give you an estimate).

  • The next step of road trip planning is to go out and buy road maps for your route – I’m a fan of the bound ones that are like books, but some people don’t mind folding up/unfolding the larger ones. I can never re-fold those things right! You can find maps in bookstores or online. Get these even if you have a GPS system – it’s nice to have backup.

  • Plan your hotels along your route, never doing more than 6 hours of driving a day. This will leave you plenty of time to stop for meals and to see your selected sights, not to mention you won’t be miserably tired of driving! When I’m road trip planning, I try to stick to driving two days, and then taking a day off from driving at an interesting sight/town before getting back on the road. This really helps make the trip more enjoyable.

  • Have a destination? Depending on what it is (some places have so much to do you’ll need many days), and how long you want the road trip to run, plan on spending a few days here. You’ll want a breather from driving and you’ll get a chance to really soak it up – your destination is why you planned this road trip in the first place! If you’re really pressed for time, plan to spend a full day there, arriving the night before and staying a second night before heading back.
  • Now you’ve mapped out a truly great road trip vacation. Check out my Road Trip Games and Songs for ideas to make your road trip even more fun!

    How to Work-at-Home as a Travel Agent, becoming a travel agent.#Becoming

    How to Work-From-Home as a Travel Agent

    March 28, 2017 This post may contain paid and/or affiliate links. Please see our disclosure policy for further information.

    Becoming a travel agentBy Holly Reisem Hanna

    Do you love to travel? Do you have wanderlust? Are you a master at finding great travel deals?

    Becoming a work-at-home travel agent might be your ideal work-at-home career path!

    Working as a travel agent might seem a little outdated in today’s world of Kayak and Airbnb, but in reality, many people still prefer to work with travel agents. Why? Experienced travel coordinators help travelers save money, time, and all kinds of travel-related headaches.

    Home-based travel agents generally work for a host agency (a company bonded and accredited by the Airlines Reporting Corporation or the International Airlines Travel Agents Network) as an independent contractor. You can also work as part of a consortium or a franchise, but as a beginning agent, a host agency offers the oversight, access, and background you’ll need to be successful.

    As a travel agent, you’ll collect a commission on the arrangements you book, and you’ll often have access to special deals. You can choose to work in a certain industry or work with specific businesses or a large corporation, or you might even assist clients looking into a particular type of travel (cruises, Disney vacations, etc.).

    One of the great things about becoming a work-at-home travel agent is that it’s a relatively easy startup business idea and the costs are very low. With a basic home office (including internet connection, a phone, computer, printer, and website), you can get started with a host agency right away.

    So if you love to travel or if you just love to help other people fulfill their vacation dreams, you may want to start a home-based travel agent business!

    Getting Started as a Work-at-Home Travel Agent:

    Home-based travel agents make an average of $31,056/year, but the wage ranges can vary between $8,000/year to $80,000/year. It all depends on your experience, the number of clients of you retain, hours worked, and commission and support from your host agency.

    Agents who work in specific markets or on specific vacation types (like destination weddings or luxury travel) can become very familiar with their market, and thus, enjoy even greater success. Working in particular markets, like weddings or corporate travel can also make a big difference regarding salary.

    Remote Travel Consultant Jobs:

    If starting your own business seems intimidating, there are many companies within the travel and hospitality industry that hire at-home travel consultants, reservationists, and customer service reps and best of all many of these positions come with travel perks!

    To start out, you may want to explore:

    For more remote companies that hire with the travel and hospitality sector, check out FlexJobs.

    Exploring Host Agencies:

    Finding a good host agency is key to getting started as an at-home travel agent. If you’re just starting out, you may want to familiarize yourself with host agency options to get a feel for what each can offer.

    How to Select a Great Host Agency:

    When it comes to what they offer their consultants, travel agencies vary significantly, so there are many factors to consider (besides simply who offers the best commission).

    For example, do you prefer a large agency or a small agency? Locally based hosting can be easier for new agents who might need support and training, whereas national agencies offer more regarding flexibility and growth.

    Carefully weigh your agency options and perform background research. Sites like Host Agency Reviews guide you through the process, offering tips on how to find the best travel agency that fits your needs. If you’re new to travel, you may also need help with marketing and setting up your website, as well as information on the basics of setting up a home business.

    Perks of Becoming a Travel Agent:

    Aside from being a great home-based business opportunity, becoming a travel agent offers some amazing perks.

    If you enjoy travel, you might love the chance to take “FAM trips” or “familiarization trips” to various locales. Cruise lines, hotels and tour guides know that the best way for you to sell their services is to become familiar with them yourself—so they offer all kinds of perks, including complementary and deeply discounted fares, as well as opportunities to use their services and explore all your amazing options.

    You can also save big on your own travel with great discounts! You’ll score awesome deals before anyone else even hears about them, and as a travel agent, you’ll have access to even greater discounts because, of course, the more you travel, the more business experience you rack up.

    The best part? You can deduct those travel expenses on your taxes as part of your business! You can also deduct things like advertising and expenses related to your clients. This amounts to big tax savings for you!

    Other Types of Travel Jobs:

    If you love the idea of working in the travel industry but you aren’t sure about becoming an agent or consultant, there are plenty of other job options out there.

    Travel writers document their travels and make great money (to fund even more travel). Magazines, guidebooks, and websites are often looking for freelance travel writers to contribute their experiences and give readers recommendations. If you have writing and communication skills, and you travel often, this might be a great option for you.

    The income for travel writers varies of course, but many writers are able to make great money by documenting and sharing their travels. Freelance writers, according to PayScale can make an average of $38,000 per year.

    If you prefer to try your hand at your own travel blog, you can also make money by setting up affiliates and directing traffic to your blog by marketing for like-minded and travel-focused companies. Setting up your blog is easy, and it’s a great way to share your travels with the world!

    There are other home-based travel jobs you can do too, especially if you have the expertise or a preference for particular types of travel. For example, you can become a cruise coordinator, where you work with companies like Cruise Planners in a home-based franchise. Cruise Planners can make around 14-21% commission (think between $490-$735 for just one booking)!

    You can also become a local coordinator for exchange students, in which you earn a small stipend for helping exchange students find a place to stay and get settled. Typically these contractors work with local organizations like schools and churches to find and help students interested in exchange programs.

    If you love to travel and you’re looking for ways to earn money from home, there are plenty of opportunities to take your travel beyond Instagram snaps and shares on Facebook … but if you’re really great at social media, you could also become a social media manager in the travel industry! Many of these positions allow you to work from home for a travel-based company, sharing posts and connecting with their customers.

    There are many ways you can earn money working in the travel industry. From becoming a work-at-home travel agent to finding ways to document and share your own travel experiences—there’s an opportunity for every traveler out there. Explore your options and pack your suitcase!

    as a Top Producer consecutive years since 2006!

    TESTIMONIALS

    Outside Agent Link has been my host agency since I started my business just about 10 years ago. Their support and training opportunities have helped me grow my business and become more successful each year. The Support Team is always there when I have questions or need guidance. I would recommend them to anyone interested in getting into the travel business looking for a host agency!

    Becoming a travel agent

    I have been an agent with Thomas Hogan Travel since 2006 and feel so lucky to have found them! They have always been there to answer my questions or help me with problems at any time of the day (after hours too!). The staff is so friendly and helpful they really care. Most importantly to me, they are completely honest and upfront. There are never any hidden fees. This company is completely reliable. I am absolutely confident that they have my best interest at heart. If you are thinking of becoming an agent, you could not ask for a more dependable, wonderful, honest staff. I plan to remain a loyal agent for many years to come!

    Becoming a travel agent

    Thank you Outside Agent Link for helping me start my own travel business.

    I have always traveled for pleasure and enjoyed all of the planning aspects that were involved. I thought how great it would be to help others plan their dream trips, and get paid for it as well! I had not worked in the travel field and I had the normal anxieties of starting a business, but decided to go ahead with my plan. A friend/agent encouraged me to join OAL. I’m so happy that I followed her advice.

    The OAL support team is dedicated to their agents and always available to help with questions or difficult situations. OAL pays well and on time.

    How and when to book a cheap flight, Travel, book a

    How and when to book a cheap flight

    Book a flight cheap

    It’s the classic traveller’s dilemma. When is the best time to book a flight for the cheapest deal? Do you bag a flight as early as possible or risk leaving it until the last minute? The answer, according to flight comparison website Skyscanner, is to wait, but not for too long.

    After an epic piece of number crunching of two million flight searches over three years Skyscanner has come up with the ideal time to book 10 summer sun destinations. Flights to Spain, for example, are at their cheapest (£153 for a return) five weeks before departure, while the cheapest flights to Greece (£228 return) are available just three weeks ahead.

    However, Filip Filipov of Skyscanner advises that while five weeks is the average, the optimum time to book your flight can vary significantly between destinations. “Price patterns can vary by type of airline and between short and long haul travel, so is very much destination dependent.”

    The best time for flights to Turkey, for example, is 13 weeks before departure, while the US should be booked five months (21 weeks) ahead.

    Skyscanner’s research covers scheduled and low-cost flights (charter flights represented less than 1.5%), and is contrary to the advice given by most industry experts who say, when it comes to full-service scheduled flights, the golden rule is the earlier the better.

    “Generally flight prices go up rather than down the closer you get to travel, so the earlier flights are booked, the better,” says Andy Washington, managing director of Expedia.

    Washington’s advice is that if you have a specific destination and specific dates in mind, the safest option is to book as soon as possible after seats go on sale, which for most scheduled airlines is between 10 and 12 months in advance (see the examples below). Most scheduled airlines hold at least one major sale in a year, usually in January, so now is also a good time to look for bargains outside of peak travel times.

    Charter airlines, by contrast, may reduce their prices closer to departure if they are struggling to sell seats, so it can be worth waiting to book – but only if you don’t have a specific destination in mind as there is no guarantee that they will be discounting the place you have your heart set on.

    Here is a list of Britons’ favourite summer destinations, with the average return flight price for summer and the best time to book (weeks before departure).

    Below is a selection of airlines with details of when fares go on sale, and the best time to pick up a bargain.

    Becoming a travel agent

    as a Top Producer consecutive years since 2006!

    TESTIMONIALS

    Outside Agent Link has been my host agency since I started my business just about 10 years ago. Their support and training opportunities have helped me grow my business and become more successful each year. The Support Team is always there when I have questions or need guidance. I would recommend them to anyone interested in getting into the travel business looking for a host agency!

    Becoming a travel agent

    I have been an agent with Thomas Hogan Travel since 2006 and feel so lucky to have found them! They have always been there to answer my questions or help me with problems at any time of the day (after hours too!). The staff is so friendly and helpful they really care. Most importantly to me, they are completely honest and upfront. There are never any hidden fees. This company is completely reliable. I am absolutely confident that they have my best interest at heart. If you are thinking of becoming an agent, you could not ask for a more dependable, wonderful, honest staff. I plan to remain a loyal agent for many years to come!

    Becoming a travel agent

    Thank you Outside Agent Link for helping me start my own travel business.

    I have always traveled for pleasure and enjoyed all of the planning aspects that were involved. I thought how great it would be to help others plan their dream trips, and get paid for it as well! I had not worked in the travel field and I had the normal anxieties of starting a business, but decided to go ahead with my plan. A friend/agent encouraged me to join OAL. I’m so happy that I followed her advice.

    The OAL support team is dedicated to their agents and always available to help with questions or difficult situations. OAL pays well and on time. We are fortunate to be part of Travel Leaders, America’s largest travel company. The agents at OAL are a great networking team that are happy to share their knowledge and experience. Last but not least, OAL’s working relationship with their vendors is amazing. We have great Reps!

    After almost seven years with OAL, I am still happy to be partnered with this great host agency. I couldn’t have chosen a better group to be part of.

    Do I Need A Travel Agent License or Certification, becoming a

    Do I Need A Travel Agent License?

    One of the most frequent questions I get comes from people thinking they need to get a license or pass a test to become a home-based travel agent. These are fairly typical:

    How do I get my travel agent license?

    In order to be a full-fledged travel agent do you need to be licensed or certified or take a test?

    Only one state, Rhode Island, had something they referred to as a license. But it was really just a requirement to register and post a bond. And Rhode Island repealed the law that required that license in June of 2010.

    So there really is no such thing as a travel agent license if by license you mean having to pass some sort of state-administered test, like you do when you apply for a driver s license.

    However, some local governments (counties, towns, cities, etc.) might have license provisions for those operating a home-based business. This is more in the nature of a tax than a license (in the driver s license sense of the word). The local municipality uses ordinances like this to keep tabs on who s operating businesses in residential neighborhoods.

    This is pretty much a formality and you shouldn t be worried that the local powers that be will tell you that you can t run your business. Their main concern is that you don t start a manufacturing business that might involve dangerous chemicals or processes, or a retail business that might bring a steady stream of cars and customers to your house, thus compromising the residential character of the neighborhood. And, of course, they get some more money for the municipal coffers.

    Regulations like this are not a universal rule. There is a very good chance your local area has no such regulation. There is no such requirement in New York City, which is one of the most heavily taxed and regulated business environments in the country. (Sssh! Don t tell them!)

    If your local government has such a rule, you should abide by it (although I suspect that many home-business operators don t out of ignorance or otherwise and the local authorities are none the wiser). Check with your local Chamber of Commerce; they should be able to tell you all about local ordinances. And don t worry about it. Like I say, it s just a formality and it shouldn t cost you all that much.

    What About Travel Agent Certification?

    Likewise, you do not have to be certified as a travel agent to become a home-based travel agent. Now there are several travel agent certification programs out there, most notably those operated by The Travel Institute, but that is something else entirely. Seeking travel agent certification and becoming a certified travel agent is a matter of professional pride, not a must-have to become a travel agent.

    Some host agencies only want to deal with agents who have experience. So if you ve just graduated from a travel school, you may have a certificate but no experience. Other host agencies won t deal with rank beginners but will deal with recent travel school graduates; in this case a certificate can be helpful. Some host agencies will require that you have some form of travel agent certification (like that from the Travel Institute) to qualify for a higher commission split without paying a fee.

    Many, many host agencies, however, including the vast majority listed in my home study course, will sign you up pretty much no questions asked. No travel agent certification required. No travel agent license needed

    Another thing that can seem something like a license or certificate is the fictitious name certificate, which is called different things in different places. Essentially, it s a legal formality that allows you to cash checks written to your business name. Let s take the case of Sue Jones and her home-based travel business, called Travel With Sue. Now the bank will not deposit a check made out to Travel With Sue into Sue Jones personal account. The solution? Sue registers her business name at the town hall or county court house (for a fee of course), gets her fictitious name certificate for Travel With Sue, takes it to the bank and opens a business account in the name Travel With Sue.

    Again, this is a formality (a bit like a tax, too). You don t have to pass a test or get a travel agent license to do this.

    Some states (California and Florida among them) have laws that require travel agents to register. Again, these are not true licensing laws. In my opinion they are a misguided form of taxation on travel agents that lets the state pretend it is protecting the interests of consumers. You don t need to pass a test to register under these laws; all the state wants is your money. So these laws have nothing to do with a real travel agent license, travel agent certification, or becoming a certified travel agent.

    By the way, all these sorts of housekeeping matters are covered in my home-study course in the section called Getting Serious.

    A College Student’s Financial Success key

    Financial success may come in different forms. Financial success does not only mean that you are financially independent, or you have been able to make thousands of dollars off the stock market. To be financially successful, may mean making sure by the time you graduate from college, you are not in debt or worse off than you started.

    As essential as it is to secure a part-time job to support your personal wants, you must be aware of the hidden regressors that come uninvited. Your first check in the mail, brings you to some degree, some feeling of accomplishment. Your adult life is just beginning, where you see the value of getting paid for work done. It goes without say that it s at that time where you start to take on additional responsibilities. The importance of communication and being able to be reached wherever and whenever, prompts you to procure a wireless. The apparent need of getting to and from your job incurs the cost of driving insurance, gas and all other related transportation expenses. Indubitably, acquiring a job doesn t always mean money inflow; it creates a path for money outflow. One needs to be prepared for the unexpected and the ability to be financially successful.

    Credit cards: a friend or a foe? When the due date for bills draw nigh, and the checks are not coming in as often as you would have expected, many students feel pressured to use credit cards as a means of a short-term loan. This method where you plan on immediate repayment is not harmful; however, many students misconstrue that credit cards are an invention to make college life luxurious and comfortable. Wrong!

    Saving is sometimes barely doable for some students, since they end up owing money to all these credit card companies. Our system is designed so that without good credit, one is limited from doing a lot of things. It is thus sagacious if we use our credit cards wisely. Use credit cards for things you know will definitely bring you a return. For example, use your credit cards to buy gas to take you to work. When you decide to use your credit cards to buy all the possible clothes on sale; and the purchase is backed by the conviction of repayment after you graduate, put the credit card back in your book bag.

    Credit cards can either make you or unmake you; this is because if you use them wisely, once you graduate, it will be easier to get a loan for a new car or a lower security deposit on that new apartment. For the college students that work, there is always a possibility of saving your money, even if you can t save a lot; you can still save a little. Try to research online, for banks that offer high interest rates on their savings account. The proliferation of online savings accounts has undeniably increased the interest rates, and thus the potential to earn more on your savings.

    To be financially successful means to be free from debt, in the college perspective it is to try to avoid a post-graduation debt. The broke college student has the ability to be financially successful, if means are taking to save more and use credit wisely.

    Asking for a lot of money

    Most people dream of making a lot of money. The question is, what does that mean?

    The truth is that money is highly subjective. Certainly, a billion dollars is a lot of money; there are only a handful of billionaires in the world. Is a million dollars a lot? In terms of total wealth, no; a significant minority of the population has a million dollars or more in total assets to leave to their heirs, largely due to the appreciation of real estate. Were one to make a million dollars a year, however, that person would be among the most highly paid in the world.

    Personal perception has a significant role in determining the amount of money that a person can expect to make. The reason for this is that the two factors that most influence earnings–level of demonstrable skill, and payment requested from an employer–are very dependent upon the individual. Moreover, while skill is partially based on individual confidence and partially dependent upon innate ability, the amount of money that a person asks an employer to provide is solely based on the individual.

    Of course, the two are related. One cannot have a minimal skillset and expect to receive a high salary. However, many people have excellent skillsets yet are paid comparatively little versus their peers. Why?

    The truth is, they probably didn’t ask–or if they did, they didn’t ask in a way that conveyed they really thought that they deserved what they wanted. In many cases, the boss knows the most that he or she can pay, but will be pleased to pay less if an employee will accept it.

    Of course, the boss will not tell the employee what he or she can actually afford to pay. But dealing with that is comparatively easy in the Information Age: there are salary guidelines for given locales and positions available on the Internet. The real challenge is not asking a high level of compensation, but feeling that you deserve the high level of compensation for which you are asking.

    To do that, one must understand the relative value of money. We have established that being a billionaire is truly remarkable, and that accumulating a million dollars over a lifetime is not but that making a million dollars per year is. What about lower income levels–the sort that we tend to see in everyday life?

    How much is a lot?

    The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Federal Poverty Guideline for a family of four in 2006 is $20,000. A family that makes this amount or less is, by definition, poor.

    The median income reported for a family of four in 2006, however, ranged from a low of $45,867 in New Mexico to a high of $87,412 in New Jersey. These figures include single- and multi-earner households.

    Consider a candidate in New Jersey who holds a degree in a moderate-demand field. Will he or she accept a salary of $20,000? Probably not. Expecting a salary of $87,412 may seem excessive, though, because he or she would, as a single earner, be requesting the average income of a family of four.

    But is it excessive? Actually, no; if $87,412 is the median salary–meaning there are an equal number of earners above and below that mark–the candidate could, in fact, confidently request $90,000 or more. The reaction from a hiring manager would depend in part on the industry and also in part of the applicant’s specific skillset. Another candidate, in another job, however, could ask for it and get it. The trick is to have the audacity to ask.

    A real-life story

    Shortly after I finished college, someone I knew earned $40,000 a year. His stated goal was to reach a salary of $50,000. He worked hard to apply himself to education and professional development, and volunteered for special projects to expand his skillset.

    His next job offer caught him off-guard: $73,000. He took it, of course, astonished at how much he now made. Within a few months, though, he realized that others in the field made considerably more. He stayed active in professional development and worked hard to master new skills.

    A year into the job, he requested an increase in salary, providing his employer with salary survey data and other information. He received a raise to $89,000 and was offered an incentive plan based on performance.

    After three years, he decided to leave. He interviewed at a number of top companies that were excited to meet him. He had an offer from one for $110,000 and then got an offer from another for $115,000. Deciding that he prefered the first company, he asked if they would increase their offer. Knowing that this would require approval, however, he offered to take an initial salary of $100,000 until he finished his probationary period. They accepted.

    Four years ago, he aspired to someday make $50,000. Today, he makes $115,000–and considers $200,000 to be easily within reach given a few more years. And why?

    Europe on a Shoestring: Travel on a Budget

    Budapest, Hungary at night. Photo by Greg Koszorus

    Sitting in the backseat of a blue hatchback Saab, I look out onto the peaceful Danube River, which runs through the center of Budapest, Hungary. The bright lights of the Hungarian parliament light up the night sky, reflecting off the river. The historic bridges along the river are illuminated with lights, and I am amazed at the beauty of this city.

    It is my first night in Europe, and I can already tell what an incredible trip this is going to be. We plan to visit Hungary, Austria, Italy, France and Germany. I can’t wait to experience the different cultures and witness the history of each place. Looking at my boyfriend, who is seated next to our Hungarian friend in the driver’s seat, I wonder how I got so lucky. How did I get all the way here from little Greeley, Colorado?

    Well, by saving and planning, that’s how!

    When my boyfriend first asked me to travel with him to Europe, I said yes without any hesitation, but in my head I was wondering how the heck I was going to pay for this on a student budget. After thinking about it, I decided I was going to make it happen.

    The first thing I had to do was start saving. Every tiny paycheck I got, I would put a portion of it into savings. No more Starbucks, no more going out to eat and no more shopping. Sadly, Starbucks was the hardest thing to give up, but it was all worth it.

    Travel in Austria was even easier using the Eurail Select Pass. Photo by Kirstin Graber

    After doing my research, I learned that the best way to save money when traveling is to plan ahead. In my case, this was key when traveling to Europe because it is much cheaper to pay in dollars than in Euros. Constantly researching online for the best prices available also helped.

    Buying a plane ticket from the US to Europe can be extremely expensive, but fortunately, travel websites like Priceline and Expedia made it possible. After saving and ticket hunting for a few months, I was finally able to afford my ticket to Budapest.

    According to Yahoo Travel, one small thing to remember is that the cheapest days to buy a plane ticket is on a Tuesday or Wednesday afternoon and traveling on a weekday.

    Next on the list was finding a place to stay in each country. Once again, the travel websites came in handy. We looked for accommodations in safe locations at an affordable price, and travel websites provide all the information you need. Even though you don’t know exactly what you are getting, that is just a part of the adventure.

    Train travel is one of the cheapest ways to get around in Europe and can be the most fun. If you buy a Eurail train pass, you will save a good amount of money. We chose the Europe Select Pass, which allows you to travel a certain number of days within your chosen countries for one set price. Since my boyfriend and I were under age 26, we could purchase a discounted youth pass. It cost us US$ 451 each for eight days of train travel within Italy, Germany, Austria and Hungary.

    When you do get to your destination, remember to set a budget for the trip and stay within the budget. Know the currency and always calculate how much you are spending in dollars. Often times, people think they are spending less than they really are.

    With a little planning, it s possible to travel on a student budget in Italy. Photo by Greg Koszorus

    Another important aspect of traveling is to know the little quirks about the country you are visiting. For example, in Italy, restaurants have a sit down price and a take out price. In Venice, we found Paninis for 3€ ($3.88). When we ordered, the man told us to sit and wait for the Paninis. When we went to pay, he charged us double the price.

    When we asked why, he said it was because we sat down and ate in the restaurant. We could have saved 6€ ($7.77) if we had taken the order and stood outside. Knowing things like that is important, so you are aware of ways they may overcharge you.

    Many students claim they don t want to travel because of how expensive it is, but I am proof it is possible. Your bank account may decrease dramatically, but the experience and knowledge you gain is worth it.

    Just remember to plan ahead, save your money and stay within your budget. I have no regrets for going and cannot wait until I have saved up enough to go again.

    Cuba Travel: 5 Things to Know If You – re Thinking

    #cuba travel
    #

    Yesterday’s announcement that the U.S. will loosen restrictions on visiting Cuba has some travelers in tizzy. By all means, pack your bags—but read this first.

    Did you hear that noise yesterday afternoon? It was the collective squeal of travelers around the country, upon learning that President Obama had announced the resumption of U.S diplomatic relations with Cuba. For many American vacationers, Cuba with its classic cars, mojitos, and fine cigars is a dream destination, but one that rigid travel restrictions have made difficult to visit. Yesterday s announcement didn t remove those strictures, but it did promise to relax them.

    Ready to go? Here s what you should know.

    1. Don t expect anything to change overnight

    While the new policy won t allow unrestricted tourism to Cuba (which would require an act of Congress), it will loosen restrictions on certain types of trips, according to a White House statement. So what exactly does that mean? There s plenty of speculation, but no one really knows the details just yet. On Wednesday afternoon, the Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC), part of the Department of the Treasury, announced that it expects to issue its revised travel rules in the coming weeks. No changes will take effect until those new rules are released.

    Currently, U.S. citizens who want to visit Cuba have a few options. Cuban-Americans with close family in the country can visit as often as they like, while other people may be permitted to go for professional, religious, or educational purposes. However, for the typical traveler, the most viable option is a people-to-people trip. These are super-regulated group tours, which must focus on educational and cultural interactions with Cubans. Many industry experts expect that the new rules will focus on loosening the restrictions around these existing forms of travel.

    2. Some prices may fall

    According to Collin Laverty, president of trip provider Cuba Educational Travel. the typical cost of a group tour to Cuba is around $4,000 to $5,000. One reason prices are so steep, he explains, is that people-to-people trips must be highly scheduled, meaning they include all meals, guides, transportation, activities, and more. Plus, tour providers must stay on top of their permits and licensing, which requires manpower and lawyers fees. (Katharine Bonner, who oversees travel to Cuba for Tauck. says it took six months for the company to get its paperwork renewed.) Tom Popper, president of operator insightCuba. adds that Cuban travel suppliers tend to charge American firms a premium, which drives up the price of the tour.

    If the new rules allow less rigorously structured tours, prices are expected to come down. And, should they allow for independent travel to the country, vacationers will likely be able to choose their lodging and itinerary, giving them more control over what they pay.

    3. but demand is likely to pick up quickly.

    Travel to Cuba is already pretty popular. According to the Associated Press. 170,000 Americans visited the country legally last year, while Quartz report s that the island was the second most popular Caribbean destination for international travelers during the first nine months of 2014. As U.S. travel restrictions ease, trip providers say they expect demand to surge. For people who ve always wanted to go but never managed to pull the trigger, the idea that massive cruise lines could soon be adding Cuba to their itineraries may be what it takes to get them to book. People want to go before it changes, says Popper. The collective travel consciousness says this isn t going to last forever.

    4. The infrastructure isn t there yet.

    For Canadians and other international travelers, Cuba is often seen as a sun-and-sand getaway rather than a cultural destination, says Laverty. As a result, there are a sufficient amount of hotels by the beaches, but once you get into Havana, there aren t enough rooms, he says. Until the country s tourism infrastructure has a chance to catch up, Americans looking to stay in the cities or countryside may have a tough time finding accommodations. Flights are also tricky. Right now, the only domestic commercial options are charters, all of which fly out of Florida.

    5. New options are coming.

    Under the current system, travel companies that are licensed to take Americans to Cuba have something of a monopoly, says Laverty. While the new rules are unlikely to completely erode that advantage, they should make the industry more competitive and fuel new options for travelers. In the case of Cuba Educational Travel, that may mean adding some more independent, less full-service options. Says Laverty: We re ready to help people navigate these uncharted waters.

    Cheap airfare deals: The 10 best ways to get a cheap flight

    MAKING THE UPGRADE

    Upgrades usually come at a stiff price but Optiontown sells unsold business class seats aboard Air Asia and several other international carriers at a huge discount. Individual bookings are more likely to succeed than a group or family, and you might have to wait until you’re in the queue at the check-in desk to receive confirmation. See optiontown.com

    Advertisement

    FLY ON THE QUIET

    Blue Zone seating aboard Air Asia.

    Demand for seats fluctuates, and you can use this cycle to buy yourself a cheaper seat. Between cities with healthy business traffic, midweek flights in the middle of the day are usually the cheapest. Use a flight search engine such as Momondo that gives you day-by-day prices, or Kayak, which sends you an alert if the price changes. See momondo.com.au ; kayak.com.au

    BOOK YOURSELF A BARGAIN

    Most airlines release seats and open their bookings 11 months before flight time and the cheapest “earlybird” seats are the first to go. Book well in advance and you’ll save, airlines have become experts at filling their planes. The days when you could count on a late-breaking, red-hot deal are well and truly over. If the Aussie dollar continues its downward trajectory, an early booking may give you more reasons to cheer.

    Air Asia Sydney to Kuala Lumpur.

    STRETCH OUT FOR LESS

    Singapore Airlines’ economy class preferred seats come with many centimetres of extra leg-stretch room and they’re some of the cheapest exit row seats around. The airline charges $US40 ($55) for a preferred seat on a Singapore-Australia flight, $US60 will get you the same from Singapore all the way to Europe. Book online. See singaporeair.com

    Singapore’s Changi Airport is not only a place to shop or eat between flights, but also a comfortable place to catch 40 winks.

    Flying long haul? It can be cheaper to book sector-by-sector rather than a single ticket that takes you all the way through, for example one ticket from Melbourne to Hong Kong and another from Hong Kong to your final destination. Remember though, you might have to pass through customs and immigration, collect your bags from one flight and check in on another. If so, leave plenty of time between connecting flights.

    KNOW YOUR LIMITS

    Budget airlines make much of their revenue from travellers who show up at the check-in desk with baggage and carry-ons in excess of the allowance. They rigidly enforce their limits and if you pay for any extra baggage allowance you may need when you make your booking you’ll save. Wait until you get to the airport and if you’re over, the penalties might end up costing more than your air ticket.

    Denver airport, pitched like a row of teepees against the Rocky Mountains.

    THE RUB ON HUBS

    Competition between airlines is fierce at busy airport hubs, and that keeps prices lower than at smaller airports that are served by just a few airlines. In Europe and the US especially, if you bus or train to the nearest major airport rather than flying out of a regional airport you should be able to travel at a much cheaper price.

    THE LOWDOWN ON LOW FARES

    Although it lacks the bells and whistles of some airfare search engines, ITA Matrix Airfare Search is the go-to fare search engine for many travel professionals. Type in your route, the extreme ends of the dates for your outward and return flights, check the “see calendar of lowest fares” box and back comes a graphic with the cheapest fares available on every day within your time frame. See matrix.itasoftware.com

    SNOOZE CONTROL

    The Guide to Sleeping in Airports website is a must-read for anyone facing a long airport stopover and looking to inject some comfort into the ordeal without busting the budget. Best seats, quiet zones, free internet, tips from other passengers – this is a goldmine for the cost-conscious traveller. Singapore’s Changi Airport consistently ranks in pole position for travellers looking to sack out between flights. See sleepinginairports.net .

    LOCK AND LOAD

    Lock in the price of your air ticket with STA Travel’s Airfare Deposit Program. Pay a non-refundable deposit of $300 and you can pay the balance just seven days before flight time. Qantas offers Book Now, Pay Later. Pay a $25 holding deposit and your seat is secured, but the deal does not apply to all seats on all flights, and the final price may change if taxes, fees and Qantas’ charges rise.

    Finding a Good Travel Agent

    By Linda Garrison. Cruises Expert

    Linda Garrison went on her first cruise in in high school and has been hooked on cruising ever since. She has cruised over 100 times and spent more than 800 days on cruise ships. Linda loves ships of all kinds and has sailed on a wide variety of ships from small sailing ships to mega-liners, budget-priced cruises to ultra-expensive. She has enjoyed cruise destinations on all seven continents and visited dozens of diverse countries and hundreds of ports of call via ship. Many cruise travelers don t realize just how much of the world can been seen on a cruise! Read more

    Finding a good travel agent who will work with you to select the best cruise possible is sometimes as difficult as finding a good doctor, dentist or other service professional. The process for finding the agent who will find the best cruise for you is similar.

    Continue Reading Below

    Booking a cruise is much more complicated than buying a plane ticket or calling a hotel for a room. As with any vacation, there are many decisions you must make. It is important to find a travel agent professional who has lots of experience in cruising. After all, you wouldn t want heart bypass surgery from a psychiatrist! There are many cruise-only travel agencies, and many other full-service agencies have cruise specialists on board who sell nothing but cruises. Among other things, a good cruise specialist should be able to

    • find the best deals, answer all your questions, and have general knowledge about cruise lines and the cruise industry
    • lay out several options for you if you are uncertain, and provide brochures and information from different cruise lines
    • tell you how you will get your baggage from the airport to the ship and back
    • answer questions for those with special needs (on-board child care, dietary restrictions, medical conditions and
    • answer questions about the cruise lines cancellation and payment policies.

    For first timers, a local agent you can sit down with personally is best.

    Continue Reading Below

    Ask frequent-cruiser friends, relatives, or co-workers who they have used. Most cruise travelers love to help those new to the cruise vacation experience. If that doesn t work for you, check out local travel agencies ads in your Sunday newspaper and call agents to interview them over the phone or in person. You want an agent with lots of cruise experience and knowledge. One with personal experience about the cruise line you are interested in is a plus. Interview agents and find out which cruise lines they have traveled on and how much they know about food, cabins, entertainment, fellow passengers, facilities and common areas, or anything else that matters to you such as ballroom dancing or playing bridge. Look for someone who seems to be interested in getting to know you and wants to match your interests with the wide variety of cruise lines and destinations available to cruise travelers.

    Ask if the travel agency is cruise-only or a member of a professional organization such as CLIA (Cruise Lines International Association). ASTA (American Society of Travel Agents). or NACOA (National Association of Cruise Oriented Agencies). The Web sites of these three organizations can provide recommendations on agencies.

    The large cruise discount agencies can sometimes find deals not available to a local agent. The problem is that the person you are dealing with may be thousands of miles away and not even an experienced cruiser. If you (1) are willing to take the time to do the research yourself, (2) already know exactly which cruise you want, and (3) do not require any complicated air arrangements or air/sea transfers–then using an 800 number to book your trip can be easy and sometimes save you money.

    A good local travel agent you have met in person may be easier to work with if you return from your cruise with a problem he/she will step up and help you resolve the problem and negotiate on your behalf with the cruise line. A large cruise discount agent might do the same, but the agent doesn t have as much to lose locally by not providing outstanding service.

    Travel agents can serve as advisers, planners, and negotiators. However, remember that they make their money through sales commissions. As with any sales person, be aware of any travel agent who seems to be pushing one ship or one cruise line over others. It may be only because the commission is higher!

    I ll have to admit that finding a good travel agent might not be as important today as it was in the past, especially for those of us who are Internet-savvy and think planning is one of the fun parts of traveling. Ten years ago a local travel agent was almost a necessity if you wanted to cruise. You would go to the agent s office, pick up some brochures to study, go back to the office to sit down and discuss bargains and possibilities, and then book the cruise. The first-time or infrequent cruise traveler had to almost completely rely on the travel agent for help and information. This is certainly no longer the rule. If you are willing to invest the time, you can do the planning yourself and design the perfect cruise vacation. Then you can contact an online discount cruise broker, a cruise line or a travel agency and book your dream vacation!

    How to Become a Travel Writer

    Novelist and T+L contributing editor Gary Shteyngart on how he travels, and why.

    A few years back a friend of mine took me out to eat with several recent college graduates. As soon as I was introduced as a novelist, the cheerful, sangria-fueled table stopped chattering as my new friends tried to digest exactly what that meant. “So…you…write…books.” It reminded me of one of the first questions I was asked at a reading after my first book came out: “What’s the difference between, like, fiction and a novel?” Since that reading took place in Los Angeles, the next question was to be expected: “So who directed your book?”

    This time around, I knew to head off the conversation at the pass immediately. “I also write about travel,” I said, to a chorus of “Wow!” and “Awesome!” and “Where was the last place you went?” and “Isn’t Bangkok’s new airport the bomb?”

    The ascendancy of travel writing as a serious endeavor is not exactly new. It’s possible to think of Don Quixote as an extended travelogue, and, if you’re so inclined, the Book of Exodus. As a teacher of fiction writing at Columbia University, I am no longer surprised when my students drop by during office hours with the question, “How do I break into travel writing?”

    To write well about travel requires an emotional attachment to the idea that life is composed of a series of shifts. Being an immigrant, or someone with roots in more than one culture, helps. But really all it takes is being an emotional immigrant. The next place you land should seem as real to you, if not more real, than the place you left behind. When I was six, my family left Leningrad for a one-week stay in Vienna, followed by a half-year in Rome, followed by a small lifetime in Queens, New York. Our existence was an endless trail of train stations and airports, men in official hats bearing heavy passport stamps, the crunch of authority against travel documents. And because I was a child and lacked any sense of tragedy—the tragedy of leaving one’s culture and language behind—each newly cracked train timetable, each fog-choked airplane takeoff was thrilling. When we hunkered down in Queens for 10 years of relative poverty and zero plane travel, I was heartbroken. Why weren’t we moving? I spent large parts of my childhood on my grandmother’s fire escape, watching TWA 707’s nosing into LaGuardia.

    Today’s traveler is often confronted by hordes of newly minted tourists from Russia and China. Some bemoan their lack of manners, but I am always glad to see people from repressed places let out of their holding pens, if only for a few weeks. My aunt left the Soviet Union during the tail end of the Gorbachev era, and she used her tiny salary to travel as far as Switzerland and Japan, living on air and water, sometimes solely on air. Many of us ex-Soviets grew up with the idea that the best you can do with your life is to pack your luggage and head for the airport.

    There are differences in how one conducts the Grand Tour these days. Chinese and Russian travelers, whether in groups or alone, seem to pass through the traditional gauntlet of museums and temples. When I return to St. Petersburg, if only for a few days, I pay my respects to the Hermitage, cultural duty mixing with childhood memories. But I cannot remember the last time a museum visit has truly moved me, or radically changed the way I perceived the lay of the land. Maybe the Leeum, Samsung Museum of Art, in Seoul, did the trick, the quiet brilliance of its celadon ceramics contrasting nicely with the electronic hustle outside. The fact that the museum carries the name of Samsung made it doubly so.

    But many of us now want more than the chance to see our jet-lagged faces reflected in a museum vitrine. The contemporary Western traveler wants to see the lives of others—maybe actually live them (cue Airbnb). Blown away by Shanghai, saddened that I had only a few days in the city, I found myself transfixed by the postings outside a real estate office. My mind flashed with figures. If the average Shanghai resident earns x per year, how on earth can she afford to buy an apartment for y. Real estate prices, the insane hunt for the best soup dumpling in town, the thrill of nearly having your leg shorn off by some kind of motorized post-donkey-cart—all of these come together to form our impressions of a place. Each of them can be the start or end of a travel piece.

    I used to jot down my travel notes in a series of miniature reporter’s notebooks, but now most of my notes are typed on an iPhone and make for a long string of non sequiturs when I return home. “Some of Dubai’s pale-brick mega-architecture oddly mirrors the Creedmor mental facility in Queens.” “Eat around the actual fish and u find little morsels of flava.” “Emiratis r really into decoration.” Off-the-cuff iPhone photos—an ATM dispensing gold jewelry in Abu Dhabi, for example—complement these musings. Returning to my hotel late at night after a few shots of Turkish raki or Chinese baijiu, I can whip out the laptop and make some truly grandiose generalizations along the lines of “Damaged people from a damaged country can’t just suddenly become whole.”

    Another key to travel writing is to have friends. Like a CIA agent cultivating new operatives, I think half the reason I still attend parties is to make sure that when I fly into BKK or HKG, or even ATL, I will have someone on the ground who knows the place better than I know my own New York. Because I’m not looking as much for the sights, or the shops, or even the food stalls (okay, maybe the food stalls), as I am for opinions. I want to get off a plane and start chatting with my friends right away, seeing the landscape through their seasoned eyes, and typing “Emiratis r really into decoration” into my phone. I want to hear not just the exultations about the best fried chicken on the planet and the second best tripe in Lazio, but great outpourings of disappointment and regret. To steal from Tolstoy: each happy country is alike (and dreadfully boring, I might add); each unhappy country is unhappy in its own way. I know I’ve hit upon something when, deep into the night, the last lights of some garish new skyscrapers twinkling off until dusk, someone whispers to me some version of: “Please don’t quote me, okay? But everything here is a lie.”

    Often I’m afraid. Not for my life so much. These days, from Ramallah to Baku to Asheville, the world is actually shockingly safe. I’m afraid that I won’t get it right. That I’ll bring too many biases. That I won’t see the lies. When my plane lands in Beijing, a city of 20 million, I know I have just eight days to come up with something original and insightful about the place. Yes, I’ve already made all the right connections before boarding at Newark and tonight I will meet a Chinese American former rock star who, if his Internet musings are anything to go by, is one of the smartest and funniest people in the People’s Republic. And so, jet-lagged but full of purpose, swinging my luggage from escalator to moving walkway, cutting off that truly annoying Belgian couple whose child has been drooling on me for 20 hours, running toward the bittersweet word immigration, with the universal symbol of a man in a cap examining an open book, I begin my new life.

    Japan on a Budget, Tips for Cheap Travel! Japan Travel Mate

    Japan on a Budget, Tips for Cheap Travel!

    Here s a non-exhaustive collection of ideas for travelling Japan without spending a lot of money. These ideas for cheap travel are somewhat random, and unordered, but take a look and you ll be sure to pick up a tip or two to save money on your Japan holiday.

    Things To Do In Japan

    In this article:

    Travel in off-peak times

    Now this doesn t mean you will be missing the good weather. Peak times in Japan are during the major national holidays and the school holidays.

    The best time is April. This is spring in Japan and students are at school, the cherry blossoms are blooming and the weather is great. September and October are good times also, it is autumn in Japan and everyone is back to school and work.

    Around the end of April and beginning of May is Golden Week in Japan. 4 national holidays over a week, prices for accommodation go up and shinkansens are booked solid best to avoid this time!

    Mid-July and all of August are summer holidays in Japan. which means peak domestic travel and hence, high prices on just about everything. It is easily the busiest time of year and also the hottest.

    Japan Rail Pass

    When people tell me they re going to visit Japan, the first thing I ask them is have you bought your Japan Rail Pass yet?

    The JR Pass is available to anyone on a tourist (Temporary Visitor) visa and gives you unlimited travel on all Japan Rail buses, trains and shinkansen (bullet trains) the only exception is you can t travel on the fastest express services.

    The Japan Rail Pass just flash this pass at the ticket gates and stroll on through

    At first glance, the pass may seem expensive. Last time I travelled to Japan on a tourist visa I paid about $600 AUD for a 3 week JR Pass. Consider this example: a return trip on the shinkansen (bullet train) from Nagoya to Okayama is normally about 24,000 yen (about $300 AUD). Osaka to Tokyo is much further and more expensive. I did about 6 of these trips during a 3 week stay, so I saved about $1000 AUD and saw a lot of the country.

    7, 14 or 21 day passes are available and conditions are you must be travelling on a tourist visa and you have to purchase the JR Pass before you enter Japan. Check costs and buy a JR Pass online .

    Cheap shinkansen travel

    If you can t get a JR Pass, but you don t want to take the bus, there are cheaper options for the shinkansen. You can buy an unreserved seat, which means a seat is not guaranteed. People tend to sit in the carriage vestibules and there is nothing wrong with that. Being a super fast train, you re not in for a long journey! But if you travel in off-peak times, and during the day (i.e. not the morning or evening when shinkansen is used for work travel) then you ll get a cheaper ticket AND a seat.

    JR West Shinkansen series 700.

By comparing prices of car rental from several players, you can save a lot of money. If you prefer to retrieve the rental car in the city center, this is also possible.

    How to find the best car rental deal

    Rent a Car Best Price

    Whether you’re looking for a sporty vehicle, a super mini or a larger family car, you’ll find the best deal on your rent a car by shopping around online in advance. Not only will this save you money, it will help you to secure the vehicle type you want rather than turning up and choosing from the cars everyone else has left – if there are any left at all. Being organised is particularly essential during peak travel periods, such as the school summer holidays, when many of the popular car types will sell out well in advance. Even if you’ve pre-booked your rent a car and have already bought your excess insurance, the chances are the car hire rep will still have other extras and upgrades up their sleeve to sell you. So, to avoid paying any more than you have to, here are a few extra charges you can avoid.

    Adding additional drivers, particularly those under the age of 25, can bump up the cost of hiring a car. So, find out the costs and think realistically about whether the price justifies how often the extra person will actually be behind the wheel. According to the Post Office’s Motoring on the Continent report, UK drivers in Europe can expect to pay significantly more for fuel this summer than last. So, it’s just as important to shop around for fuel while you are away as when you are at home. Many car hire companies now also operate ‘fuel empty’ policies, whereby you pick up your hire car with a full tank of fuel and are charged for it at a price set by your company. You are then expected to return your car with an empty tank. If you want to avoid this type of policy to control your own fuel costs, find out the rules of the company you are planning to hire with before you book.

    Daily charges to hire sat navs or child car seats – If you know you will rely on a sat nav or are travelling with children and will need car seats, be prepared and bring your own from home to avoid steep daily charges. Not only will this save you money, but it will ensure the quality of the items is what you are used to.

    Why is United Airlines suing a 22-year-old? Dec. 29, 2014 #svr

    Why is United Airlines suing a 22-year-old?

    22-year-old Aktarer Zaman founded Skiplagged.com last year.

    A young computer whiz from New York City has launched a site to help people buy cheap plane tickets. But an airline company and its travel partner want to shut him down.

    The site helps travelers find cheap flights by using a strategy called “hidden city” ticketing.

    The idea is that you buy an airline ticket that has a layover at your actual destination. Say you want to fly from New York to San Francisco — you actually book a flight from New York to Lake Tahoe with a layover in San Francisco and get off there, without bothering to take the last leg of the flight.

    This travel strategy only works if you book a one-way flight with no checked bags (they would have landed in Lake Tahoe).

    It’s not like these tickets are the cheapest all the time, but they often are.

    In the lawsuit, United and Orbitz call Skiplagged “unfair competition” and allege that it is promoting “strictly prohibited” travel. They want to recoup $75,000 in lost revenue from Zaman.

    Zaman said he knew a lawsuit was inevitable but he points out that there’s nothing illegal about his web site.

    He also said he has made no profit via the website and that all he’s done is help travelers get the best prices by exposing an “inefficiency” in airline prices that insiders have known about for decades.

    “[Hidden city ticketing] have been around for a while, it just hasn’t been very accessible to consumers,” Zaman told CNNMoney.

    Indeed, “hidden city,” ticketing is no secret among frequent fliers, said Michael Boyd, President of Boyd Group International, an aviation consulting firm in Evergreen, Co. Boyd worked as an American Airline ( AAL ) ticket agent 30 years ago, and says he was trained at the airline to help customers find “hidden city” fares.

    “I don’t think it’s illegal what he’s doing,” Boyd said. But lawsuits are expensive and it could end up costing the young entrepreneur who has irked the two billion dollar corporations.

    Airlines usually offer cheaper fares for some destinations that are not regional hubs, Boyd said. Many of these flights are routed through more popular destinations. But if a lot of people take advantage of that discrepancy it could hurt the airlines, which is why they want to shut him down.

    Born in Bangladesh, Zaman grew up in Brooklyn, N.Y. and graduated with a bachelor’s degree in computer science at age 20 from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. He lives in Manhattan and works at a technology start-up that he declined to name.

    Zaman said Skiplagged is just a “side project” and declined to discuss the lawsuit.

    Orbitz said in a statement that it is obligated to uphold airline fare rules.

    A United spokesman said, “This practice violates our fare rules and we are taking action to stop it to help protect the vast majority of customers who buy legitimate tickets.”

    Other travel experts say that the airlines may not achieve much if Zaman’s site is shut down, especially in a world where information is becoming more readily available.

    “If [Skiplagged is] shut down, undoubtedly there will be other people to come along to scrape fares and make them available,” said Robert Mann, president of R.W. Mann Company, an airline consulting firm in Port Washington, N.Y.

    Travel Itinerary Template: Keep Your Trip Organized With a – Cheat

    #travel itinerary template
    #

    Sometimes Nothing Beats a Good Ol Fashioned Piece of Paper!

    Technology, especially mobile devices, have really helped travelers stay organized while on the road.  In fact, one of our favorite travel apps that we use is called TripIt.

    The TripIt app helps us consolidate a lot of our travel information and confirmation numbers into one place.  This allows us to access it online or save it for viewing offline on our mobile devices. However, I have learned from my previous travel experience that using technology doesn t always make things easier or quicker.

    This is especially true when traveling overseas.  I don t always have my mobile devices powered on, and often they are not connected to a data network.  Other times I may not want to draw attention to myself and my fancy technology while I m walking down the street.  In these cases I ve discovered that it s easier to go old school, with an actual piece of paper!

    Unfortunately, all those confirmation emails and travel planning documents tend be long and include a lot of information that you may not need.  In fact, if you were to print all of that information out, you would probably be walking around with a small book in your pocket!

    This defeats the whole point of a cheat sheet because you would be fumbling around trying to find what you need.  My cheat sheet is only 1 page!

    A travel cheat sheet should be concise. Mine is only one page. The text looks small, but when it s printed it can be read fine.  Just fold it into quarters and stuff it in your pocket!

    Items to Include on Your Travel Cheat Sheet

    There are all kinds of things you may find useful to put on your travel Cheat Sheet.  But the most critical pieces of information to include are only those that you may need to reference quickly while you are on the go.  So don t overdo it by putting too much information.  Keep it concise and easy to read.  Some of the items I include in my cheat sheet include:

    • Rough Itinerary Don t plan each minute!  But it s helpful to plan out major activities on each day, especially days when you are traveling.
    • Hotel Information confirmation numbers, addresses, contact information, prices deposits paid (so you know what you owe on arrival), and possibly directions.
    • Transportation Information flight numbers, train / bus schedules, how to use local transportation and buy tickets, etc.
    • Attractions if there are certain sights that you absolutely want to see, make a note of their operating hours and days (because that might impact your itinerary), addresses, and prices (which will help with budgeting).
    • Activities anything that you have pre-booked, along with the confirmation numbers.
    • Language Phrases include a few simple phrases or notes about the language or even local customs.

    Bring a Hard Copy of Your Cheat Sheet Keep It Handy

    My cheat sheet template is only one page.  It is grouped into 4 sections so that I can easily fold it into quarters and stuff it in my pocket.  Within the document itself, I group the information within each quarter section.  This way when it is folded, each side has a table of similar information.

    For example, one side of the page might have my overall itinerary for each day, while another side contains all my hotel information.  I also color code the header of each page for each section.  This makes it easy for me to find the page I need for whatever it is that I m looking for.

    Be sure to print out a few copies, and it is good to send an electronic copy to your email.  Lastly, this cheat sheet document is perfect for sharing with family and friends, in case they need to contact you while you are away!

    Download This Travel Itinerary Template to Create Your Own Cheat Sheet!

    Perhaps this travel itinerary template will help you get started so that you can make your own cheat sheet for your next vacation.  I assure you that you will feel so much more organized during your trip, and not fumbling around with smartphones or trying to open emails while on the road.
