International travel plans and World Devices from Verizon #airline #flights #cheap

#travel plans
#

With a little planning, your phone will be the least of your travel concerns.

Passport? Check. Low airfare? Nailed it! You’re making headway on your vacation to-do list, but don’t forget to see if your phone’s ready for the international trip. Nothing dulls a vacation quicker than bill-shock.

Directions to that hole-in-the-wall restaurant your guidebook swears by. Translating signs along the way. Sending pictures to friends. All that data use adds up.

Before you leave…

1. Visit Verizon’s Trip Planner to determine whether your mobile device will work abroad and check the voice, text and data rates for your destination(s).

2. Use the Data Calculator to estimate your data needs.

Taking a long weekend?

Now, your wireless plan travels just like you do. When you take a trip abroad, you can add TravelPass℠. starting at just $2 a day per line and use your domestic voice, text and data plan while traveling to Mexico, Canada and beyond. You also only pay $10 a day per line in more than 65 other countries. You re only charged on the days you use your device abroad—it s an economical way to stay connected while you travel.

You’re only charged on the days you use your phone. So if you don’t send a text, use data, or make or receive calls while traveling internationally, then you won’t have to pay a dime extra.

It’s simple to use, too. Add TravelPass from My Verizon and you’ll get a text message explaining the fee when you arrive. The first time you use your phone (such as sending a text or answering a call), the fee begins. Use your phone as much as you want for the next 24 hours. You’ll only get another TravelPass charge if you use your device again after the first 24 hours.

Just remember that your minutes, texts and data will count toward your regular plan. That means if you go over your plan allowance, you will be charged overages based on your domestic plan. All 4G LTE World Devices from Verizon (such as smartphones, tablets, Verizon Jetpacks and USB modems) are eligible for TravelPass.

Taking a trip for up to 3 weeks?

If you don’t have a World Device and if you need a device for 21 days or less, consider the International Travel Program (must be on a qualified domestic plan). You’ll get service for a basic phone, smartphone or USB modem while in certain international destinations.

Before you leave the US, Verizon will send you a World Device and travel adapter to use on your trip. Just pay the one-time shipping cost. There are no daily rental fees or security deposits—just pay for the usage (talk, text and data depending on the device). The charges appear on your regular Verizon Wireless bill. Plus, you can keep your regular phone number and transfer contacts using Verizon Cloud or Backup Assistant℠ Plus.

Taking a month-long trip for fun or frequent trips for work?

Month-to-month plans help frequent international travelers get ongoing data coverage. You can choose the Mexico and Canada plan or a plan that offers service in more than 140 countries.

The bottom line

Two things work in your favor when you set up a data plan: you will be accessing much lower rates and getting notifications on your data usage.

To keep your data in check. turn off your email and push notifications, and use Wi-Fi when it’s available in airports, hotels and restaurants to browse the web or check your email.

For more information on International Travel Services, including a list of destinations, check out Verizon’s International Service Options. Safe travels!

Japan Airlines resumes flights from D #round #the #world #travel

Japan Airlines resumes flights from D/FW today

Kazuhiro Nogi/Agence France-Presse

Related

Japan Airlines resumes flying Monday from Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport to Tokyo’s Narita International Airport for the first time in more than 14 years.

The Japanese carrier initially will operate four flights a week but has said it might expand to daily service in the spring. It will fly a Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner jet — which has 161 seats and first-class, premium economy and economy cabins — on the route.

Japan Airlines will mark its return with a traditional Japanese gate ceremony at 10 a.m. Monday at gate 22 in Terminal D. The flight is scheduled to depart at 11:45 a.m.

Japan Airlines ended its D/FW-to- Narita service on Oct. 7, 2001, following the terrorist hijackings of Sept. 11, 2001. It initially began that service in March 1999.

Its Oneworld Alliance partner American Airlines, the dominant carrier at D/FW Airport, will continue to fly twice a day between D/FW Airport and Narita, using Boeing 777-200 aircraft with 247 to 260 seats. Each carrier will put its code on the other’s flights, meaning Fort Worth-based American and Japan Airlines will share revenue from each other’s U.S.-Japan flights.

Japan Airlines will rely on American and regional brand American Eagle to feed passengers to its D/FW flights, just as American feeds passengers to JAL’s flights out of Narita.

D/FW, the nation’s fourth-busiest airport, sees more than 63 million travelers a year and offers flights to more than 200 destinations, including 57 international cities. Nearly a third of the international destinations were added in the last five years.

Japan Airlines’ return to D/FW Airport is the latest in a number of international wins for North Texas travelers in the past four years. Among them:

To the west: American Airlines launched service to Seoul, South Korea, in May 2013; to Shanghai and Hong Kong in June 2014; and Beijing in May 2015. Qantas Airways launched service to Sydney in September 2014.

To the east: Emirates Airline launched flights to Dubai, United Arab Emirates, in February 2012. Qatar Airways launched flights to Doha, Qatar, in July 2014, and Etihad Airways launched flights to Abu Dhabi, UAE, last December.

Mexico

Mexico Travel Planning Travel Tips

Embassy Contact Information: Americans Americans living in or visiting Mexico are encouraged to register at the U.S. Embassy and obtain updated information on travel and security within Mexico.

U.S. Embassy in Mexico

Paseo de la Reforma 305

Col. Cuauhtemoc

06500 Mexico, D.F.

From U.S. (011-52-477) 788-7070.

From Mexico: (01-477) 788-7070.

Mexico Climate: Land to the north experiences cooler temperatures during the winter months varying from hot and humid during the summer, cooler in the winter (68 to 75.2 °F). South of the twenty-fourth parallel, Mexico temperatures are fairly constant year round (between 75.2 and 82.4 °F) and vary solely as a function of elevation.

Mexico has pronounced wet and dry seasons. Most of the country experiences a rainy season from June to mid-October and significantly less rain during the remainder of the year. February and July generally are the driest and wettest months, respectively.

Calling Internationally: To call Mexico from the United States, dial the international prefix, 011; then Mexico’s country code, 52; and then the city code, then dial the actual phone number.

Electricity: The electricity in Mexico is 127 Volts, alternating at 60 cycles per second. If you travel to Mexico with a device that does not accept this, you will need a voltage converter. Plugs have Flat blade plug, so if your device does not have this, an adapter plug is needed.

Travel Insurance for Mexico Trips: You should consider the benefits of travel insurance as part of your Mexico travel planning. Most travelers look for travel tips that discuss the importance of travel insurance and travel insurance through Travel Guard can provide important coverage for your trip.

Whether you’re taking a family vacation or business trip, Travel Guard has a plan for your trip to Mexico. These plans may include valuable medical expense coverage, trip interruption, medical emergency assistance and treatment services and more. And with Travel Guard’s 24-hour assistance line, your coverage can act as a travel guide should your plans change.*

Tool for finding cheap flights from departure city without entering destination

DAS02135 Gold Member

Messages: 1,216 Likes Received: 1,504 Status Points: 1,095

Not exactly a mileage run question, but I think this is the most appropriate place.

Is there a website I can use to find the least expensive flights from a departure city on a specific date? For example, if I want to see all the cheap flights departing from Boston next Friday so I can determine if any of them are warm and worth going to, is there a tool I can use?

I was using FareCompare like a different thread suggests, but I cannot figure out to use specific dates.

I also tried using Expedia s dream tracker, but all the pop ups on the map are a big pain in the butt.

I ve been hesitant to post this on Flyer Talk because I m sure it s answered someplace and I did not want snarky use the search responses. However, their forum search is not a great tool when they are so many posts.

EDIT TO SHARE SOME RESPONSES:

Here are some of the recommendations:

Great for constructing a mileage run, but not (yet) friendly for just finding cheap flights for a quick getaway:

The cheapest way from London to Paris #israel #travel

#travel to paris
#

Which is the cheapest way to get from London to Paris – car, Eurostar, coach or plane?

Comments

There are many different ways to get to Paris. Today, we did a spot check comparison on as many of them as possible, including rail fares, plane tickets, car – including options by ferry or by Eurotunnel – and by coach.

We should sound a note of caution in that some tickets are for travelling on a Friday (see methodology below), often the most expensive day to travel, which will distort the results somewhat. But they give a sound indication of how budget-conscious travellers should plan their journey to the French capital, whether travelling in the short-term or several months down the line.

Methodology

Prices checked are for a single adult, with no discount cards

Prices were checked on the morning of Friday September 4, for full adult fare, both single and return journey (four days after outbound trip). Airfares are hand-luggage only.

We have not included the cost of airport transfers for Easyjet and Ryanair. But a return train ticket from Charles de Gaulle to Gare du Nord will cost about 20, and from central London to London Gatwick is at least £10, and likely to cost more, unless booked in advance.

What we have learned (or confirmed)

On the launch of its international routes three years ago, Megabus (megabus.com ) carved a reputation for value with its headline £1 fares. However, when we carried out this same research last year, we found that the cheapest coach to Paris was run by iDBUS (now rebranded as OUIBUS; ouibus.com ). But wait, there’s more: for 2015, Megabus has reclaimed its throne, again providing the cheapest route on wheels to the French capital.

Both budget coach companies trump the National Express arm, Eurolines (eurolines.co.uk )

It’s also worth noting that travel company’s websites have become pretty good at pointing you in the direction of the cheapest fare, so it’s no longer necessary to be suspicious they’re hiding the best value.

For Eurostar (eurostar.com ), Friday is an expensive time to travel: the cheapest fare available was often £30 more expensive than the same for the previous or following day (a Thursday or Saturday). This is particularly true when booking in advance.

The same goes for Eurotunnel (eurotunnel.com ), only to a lesser extent, with only a couple of pounds variation between the cheapest ticket available for next Thursday (£76) and Friday (£78). As per usual, the most anti-social travel times wins you the best deals.

P O Ferries (poferries.com ) is marginally more expensive than Eurotunnel in our study.

The cliffs of Normandy await ferry passengers Photo: Fotolia/AP

Eurostar booked well in advance is still very competitive – only £33.50 more than the cheapest return by coach. Plus, the coach services we surveyed had an erratic approach to advance bookings, with no clear timeline available, where Eurostar allows bookings 180 days in advance.

Obtaining one of the limited number of cheap seats on the Eurostar plays a large part in determining the size of your final bill (fail to book a discount seat on Eurostar and the prices rise steeply).

However, it costs similar to easyJet and becomes a much better deal once you take into account transfers to the airport.

For drivers, Viamichelin is a terrific website. As well as the route, it calculates your likely fuel costs, and tells you how much to expect to pay for tolls. Impressive.

Travel times vary for coaches surprisingly widely (up to two hours), and consider just how much you fancy eight hours in a coach before being lured by the prices.

Group travel can be an advantage. OUIBUS, for example, offers discounts for groups of more than 10. And as for travelling by car, if several (paying) people are in the same vehicle, it is almost without question the best deal of all no matter when you travel (without taking into account any additional fees for travel insurance/ roadside assistance).

Note too that the Man in Seat Sixty-One has an interesting option if you wish to travel by train, ferry, then train again. Surprisingly it s not the shorter route via Calais that is cheapest, but a longer way, via Newhaven to Dieppe. Read full details of his suggested train-ferry-train combination here

Top tips on travel to Ireland: from handling the weather to

Top tips on travel to Ireland: from handling the weather to the locals (PHOTOS)

Heading to Ireland later this year or next? There may be a few things you need to know about before you head over.

Heading to Ireland later this year or next? There may be a few things you need to know about before you head over.

1. Check the baggage restrictions on flights

They can catch you out, especially if you’re flying within Europe with Ryanair and you get charged a gazillion euros for carry-on luggage. Don’t forget to Google beforehand and check out the weight and size restrictions.

2. You’re going to need an adapter

We’ve wonky looking plug sockets here in Ireland so if you’re making your way over you’d better stock up on the adapters. This is especially true for Americans.

3. It’s going to rain

It will. You might as well pack your wellies now if you’re planning to head over because in Ireland when it rains – it pours.

There’s also a chance that the sun might actually make an appearance so don’t forget the sunglasses!

5. We don’t all speak in Irish

Thankfully it’s not necessary to be fluent in Irish before you arrive – English is our main language. Not many people regularly speak in Irish in Ireland unless you’re wandering around in the Gaeltacht areas.

6. But we phrase things differently

‘What’s the story?,’ ‘do you want a lift?’ and ‘get the shift’ are phrases used on a regular basis here but may not mean what you think they might mean. Never fear though, we’ve a guide to Irish sayings and phrases to help you along!

7. We complain a lot

Usually about the weather, the banks or the government but don’t be afraid to join in – we love a good moan about the state of Ireland.

8. We drive on the ‘wrong’ side of the road

And by wrong, I mean the left hand side. Just in case you were planning on renting a car!

9. Look to your right when crossing

Following on from that, don’t forget to look to your right when you’re crossing a road. Thankfully there are now handy signs on the ground if you need a few pointers.

10. We were born to jaywalk

Listen, we just can’t help it. If there’s even the smallest gap in traffic we’re going to go for it.

11. Blasphemy is illegal

Yep, it’s true and written in Irish law – whether people actually abide by it however is another story altogether.

12. Don’t order a ‘black and tan’ or ‘Irish car bombs ‘ in the local

Just don’t. The barman probably won’t have any idea what you’re ordering and others may find it a bit offensive – don’t bother to risk it, safer to order a pint.

13. Tipping not compulsory

We’re not big tippers here in Ireland except in restaurant situations where the 10% to the waiter is almost a given. But no need to tip taxi drivers unless they’ve shown good service.

14. If you’re planning to rent a car, don’t forget to book an automatic!

The majority of cars in Ireland use a manual gear stick so if you’re planning to rent when you’re here don’t forget to book an automatic in advance.

15. Booking a taxi not always necessary

No need to call up a taxi every time you want to head somewhere, there are plenty to go around during the day. You can flag one down by stretching out the hand or just head to a taxi rank. But if you’re heading on an early morning flight home, best order one just to be sure. Taxi too expensive? Save a bit of money and take the bus instead!

16. Buses won’t stop unless you put your hand out

If you are taking the bus this is vitally important. But be warned, some days even putting your hand out and waving it around won’t be enough to make them stop. So don’t be surprised if you see people at the bus stop jumping up and down in desperation when the bus is in view.

17. Prepare to be late, the buses are never on time

No point in looking up the timetable, sometimes they don’t even bother turning up. This is particularly true for Dublin Bus whose buses randomly disappear off the timetable. You’re almost better off relying on these transport parody Twitter accounts.

18. We tend to curse a lot

Mind your ears, we do it without realizing! But we don’t mean it to be offensive; it just sort of slips out.

19. We almost take pride in the state of our potholes

Ireland’s country roads are notorious for having the regular pothole. You might as well take a crash course in rally driving before you tackle our roads.

20. Anything over 17 degrees is considered warm

Degrees Celsius that is, room temperature, about 65 Fahrenheit. We’ll head out in t-shirts when it’s this warm.

21. Off-licences close at 10pm

If you’re planning to head out or want a good night in, don’t forget that Irish off-licences, err liquor stores, close at 10pm

22. The perfect night out ends with a 4 in 1

What’s a 4 in 1 I hear you say? Why it’s the most delicious thing to eat after a night on the town. Usually contains chips (fries), curry, rice and some form of chicken to nom on.

23. If you don’t want to stick out as a tourist abandon your Aran jumper

Seriously. We don’t really wear them very often and if we do it’s probably in the comfort of our homes where we can’t be seen.

24. Never say no to a cup of tea

You’d be mad to say ‘no!’ We’re known for our expert tea-making abilities so grab the opportunity to have a cuppa.

Traveling From The U.S.

Having the correct documentation in place before your trip is essential to travel outside the United States. Below are the Passport Visa requirements that will help make your trip run smoothly.

Passport

A passport is required for ALL international travel. If you’re traveling anywhere overseas, even to Canada, the Caribbean or Mexico, you need a passport to board an international flight and to enter any country. In general, your passport must be valid for at least six months after the date you enter a foreign country.

Visit the U. S. State Department’s website opens in a new window if you need a new passport or your passport is about to expire. There, you can find information on obtaining first time passports, passport renewals, second passport issuance and extra blank pages for an existing passport. You can also visit the U. S. Postal Service opens in a new window to find the closest Post Office that can also provide new and renewal passport services.

Visa

A travel visa is required to enter many countries. To see if one is required for your upcoming trip, visit the U. S. State Department travel website opens in a new window .

Re-entering the U.S.

Check the travel documents you will need to re-enter the U.S. For example, if you are traveling to the U.S. from Canada, select United States in the Destination country box. This search engine and database are provided and managed by the International Air Transport Association (IATA). You may wish to double-check foreign entry requirements by contacting your local embassy or consulate.

Traveling to a U.S. Territory

If you are a U. S. citizen and want to travel to one of its territories, you will not need a U. S. Passport. Sufficient ID would be a U. S. driver’s license or other valid photo identification, the same as if you were flying to New York or Seattle. However, U.S. residents with foreign passports would be subject to the same entry procedures in one of the territories that they would be on the mainland.

These destinations are considered U. S. territories: Puerto Rico, Guam, Saipan and the U. S. Virgin Islands.

Two Air France flights from U.S. diverted by bomb threats

LOS ANGELES Two Air France flights bound for Paris from the United States were diverted for several hours on Tuesday following anonymous bomb threats, and more than 700 passengers and crew were safely taken off the planes, officials said.

Flight 65, an Airbus A-380 that departed from Los Angeles, landed safely in Salt Lake City, where passengers and crew were escorted into the terminal, a spokesman for the Federal Aviation Administration said. The Salt Lake Tribune, citing an airport official, said it was carrying 497 passengers and crew.

The FBI said in a statement that no evidence was found aboard the plane “which would lend credibility to the threats” against the flight.

The airport said operations were not affected, and local Utah media including broadcaster KSL reported that passengers had been cleared to reboard and resume their journey.

Keith Rosso, a passenger who tweeted a photo shortly after takeoff from Los Angeles, said he was “thankful to everyone who has been working to keep everyone calm and make sure air travel is safe. Hope to be taking off again shortly.”

A separate Boeing 777 that left Dulles International Airport outside Washington, D.C. Flight 55, was diverted to Halifax International Airport in Nova Scotia, which said 262 passengers and crew members had safely disembarked.

The Royal Canadian Mounted Police in Halifax said on its Twitter feed that police dogs searched the plane for evidence of explosives, but no details were disclosed.

In a brief statement, Air France said both flights had been the “subjects of anonymous threats received after their respective take-offs.”

“As a precautionary measure and to conduct all necessary security checks, Air France, applying the safety regulations in force, decided to request the landings of both aircraft,” the airline said in its statement.

It said authorities inspected the aircraft, passengers and luggage, adding: “An investigation will be led by the authorities to identify the source of the telephone call.”

Security officials have been on high alert since Islamic State militants claimed responsibility for attacks last week in Paris that killed 129 people. Russia has said the group was also responsible for the downing on Oct. 31 of a plane returning to St. Petersburg from the Sharm al-Sheikh resort in Egypt, killing all 224 on board.

The incidents did not appear to be causing flight delays or cancellations elsewhere.

According to data on flight tracking website flightradar24.com, flights operated by both Air France and other airlines appear to be taking off and landing normally at Charles de Gaulle Airport in Paris.

Cheap Flights to Perth

Perth overview

When is the best time to fly to Perth?

Perth is Western Australia’s capital and its largest city. Famous for its big open spaces, dominant skyscrapers, wine-growing and laid-back lifestyle, Perth offers a unique blend of urban and natural landscapes. Most travellers arrive on cheap flights to Perth during the summer holidays for the various events and festivals taking place. The annual Perth Festival and Swan Valley midsummer feast are just two of the popular summer events. Prices for flight tickets rise in the summer months, which can be hot but the perfect time to hit the stunning white sand beaches for a dip and watersports, or cool off in the shady national parks that border the city. Another peak holiday time is during the July school holidays, when cheap flights to Perth are harder to find.

Perth experiences nearly year round sunshine, the winters are mild with average daily temps around 15C. The majority of the rainfall occurs in the winter months with showers, gale force winds and thunderstorms prevalent. May and June are the heaviest rainfall months, so pack wet weather gear if arriving on flights to Perth during this period.

When is the best time to book a flight to Perth?

The shoulder seasons of autumn and spring are generally less busy and a nice time to visit Perth if you want to avoid the hot summer weather. Autumn though still warm enough for sailing and watersports, doesn’t have the intense heat which in February can be 40C or higher. Spring might still have the odd rain shower but the landscape blooms with wildflowers. The cheapest flights to Perth are in March, and the most expensive are in January.

How long is the flight to Perth?

Which airlines operate flights to Perth?

How to get from the airport to the city centre?

Perth Airport (PER) is a busy domestic and international hub and the gateway to Western Australia. Once landing in Perth Airport you can reach the city centre, 17 km away, by taking an Airport-City Shuttle ($15 for a single journey), or the Transperth, a bus that runs to and from Domestic Terminals 3 and 4. If landing at T1 or T2, there is a free terminal transfer bus that runs to T3 and T4. Taxis are available at all terminals and a trip to the CBD costs approximately $40.

Cheap flights to Costa Rica recently found by travelers

The top flight destination for Costa Rica is San Jose

Enter your dates once and have TripAdvisor search multiple sites to find the best prices on Costa Rica flights.

Arriving at the Destination

When searching for cheap flights to Costa Rica, there are four international airports to consider. The Juan Santamaria International Airport is the top airport in the country. It was recently ranked as the third top airport—and the most improved airport—within the entire Latin America and Caribbean region.

At the Juan Santamaria Airport, tourists can definitely expect to experience spacious and state-of-the-art facilities. Although the other international airports are less modern than Juan Santamaria, security will be a priority at each one. Many Costa Rica flights can be found that land at each airport, so pick whatever will be the most convenient destination.

Getting Around

When traveling to virtually any region in the country, the best place to start is San Jose, Costa Rica’s capital, and the heart of the country’s public transportation. When looking for the best flights to Costa Rica, starting your journey in San Jose is definitely a plus. Generally you will need to return to San Jose from another region before traveling to another tourist spot. From San Jose you can get a bus to virtually any cities throughout Costa Rica.

As a word of caution, the buses usually depart like clockwork. Thus, it is crucial to arrive punctually at the bus terminal. When there is no bus route to a particular location in Costa Rica, a good alternative is to rent a car. Take advantage of Costa Rica’s transportation, much of which is as convenient as airfare to Costa Rica.

Main Attractions

If you enjoy natural wonders, then you will definitely be pleased after choosing among the available Costa Rica flights. Consider visiting the various national parks. There is Tortuguero National Park, which means “Full of Turtles.” There is also Corcovado National Park where each of the four monkey species indigenous to Costa Rica are located. Another natural wonder is the Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve, which includes approximately 2,000 species of plants. There are also numerous species of birds and mammals on the reserve.

Costa Rica also contains several quality beaches. They include Corcovado, Manuel Antonio, Montezuma, and South of Limon. Some of the beaches accommodate activities such as scuba-diving and horseback-riding. The natural wonders are awaiting those who take cheap flights to Costa Rica.

Shopping, Dining, and Nightlife

During the past decade or so, several shopping malls have been built in the country. Some of the top shopping malls include Multiplaza del Este, Multiplaza Oeste, Outlet Mall, and Paseo de las Flores Mall. You can also find several quality boutiques in San Jose. Cheap flights to Costa Rica ensures you can enjoy yourself shopping.

When dining out in Costa Rica, you have many choices. Costa Rica is becoming increasingly cosmopolitan in its selection of restaurants. With airfare to Costa Rica, you can dine at King’s Garden, Sancho Panza Spanish Restaurant, or the Machu Picchu Restaurant.

If you want to enjoy night life after comparing airfare to Costa Rica, then you should certainly check out San Jose. You can find a wide range of cafes, bars, nightclubs, and so on. Flights to Costa Rica will get you started on an amazing trip.

Visitor Medical Insurance – Comparison of buying from US vs Indian

#travel insurance usa
#

Comparison of Visitors Medical Insurance Coverage from Companies in the U.S. vs India

You can purchase visitors medical insurance from companies based in your home country (such as India) or from companies in the U.S. Generally, the cost of medical insurance from an American company is higher, although it is still the preferred insurance to purchase. As demonstrated in the comparisons below, American insurance has many advantages.

The following table provides a detailed comparison of the various issues involving insurance products available from companies in the U.S. and India. Please keep in mind that this is a generic discussion. There may be exceptions to the offerings of products in both countries (and all the products from a given country do not work the same way). You should review all the details of any insurance plan you are considering before purchasing it (i.e. any brochures, policy wording, comparisons between plans and information from your representative).

Most of the information below regarding Indian companies was taken from the Web sites of various companies, as it existed as of writing this, and it may change in the future in case any of the companies revise their products. The information is also based on our personal experiences in dealing with these companies on a trial basis during previous visits to India, professional experience dealing with many customers on a daily basis, and from reading the discussion forums and experiences section on this Web site. The information is not targeted towards any specific company or product.

Hilton Scores a Victory Over Online Booking Sites, and What It

Hilton Scores a Victory Over Online Booking Sites, and What It Means for How Travel Will Be Booked

by Gary Leff on December 1, 2015

United Airlines used to offer last minute e-fares on their website, but stopped because they ran afoul of agreements with computer reservation systems to always display the best available fares through those sites.

Paying the computer reservation systems is costly, it s cheaper when airlines sell to you directly, so they used to offer bonus miles for doing so. And paying the online travel agencies is costlier still. Even though few airlines base commissions any longer (although Alitalia just re-introduced 1% commissions in Italy) they do pay based on volume.

Airlines have long paid less to the online travel sites than hotels. So hotels have gone to greater lengths than airlines in trying to get customers to book direct. Generally when you book on Expedia you still earn frequent flyer miles for your flights, and are eligible for elite status accrual and elite benefits. (Although it may not always be as clear what restrictions apply to the fares you re buying.)

Hotels on the other hand have:

  • Restricted points-earning (Hilton s official policy is no points at all, even for incidentals during your stay, when booking through a third party)
  • Restricted status-earning (major chains won t let your stay booked through most third parties count towards gaining or retaining status)

  • Restricted elite status benefits (Though Hyatt and Marriott generally honor elite status on third party bookings, other major chains do not)
  • During periods with hotel occupancy low, the OTAs had the greatest leverage. The major chain hotels were paying over 20% commissions, perhaps 25%, and independent hotels easily paid 40%.

    But those commissions have been falling. With hotels full they have a stronger bargaining hand. They re able to pay lower commissions, and negotiate other favorable terms.

    Hilton reports that it has successfully concluded better deals.

    [Hilton CEO Chris] Nassetta said Hilton Worldwide won the right to lower the commissions it pays to online travel agencies such as Expedia and Booking.com.

    Hilton Worldwide managed to eliminate last-room availability clauses and won the right to offer preferential pricing — lower rates than it gives to online travel agencies — to certain members of the hotel chain’s loyalty program, Nassetta said.

    “We are done with all of our OTA negotiations, and we achieved our goals in every one of those pillars,” Nassetta said.

    This likely explains Hilton testing discounts for HHonors members since they don t have to offer those same rates through online booking sites and can use those to incentive lower direct booking expenses.

    Airlines, too, continually squabble with the online sites and computer reservation systems over how their fares are distributed. Lufthansa is currently imposing an extra charge for tickets through these systems, which makes them less competitive. It s hard to sort out the effect it has had on the airline, because their sales have also been affected by strikes. Airlines want online travel sites to work through their own, less expensive, direct channels. And they want everyone selling their ancillary products, at the lowest cost to the carrier.

    When we see Expedia buy Orbitz after buying Travelocity we shouldn t just think of them as making consumer unfriendly moves, we should think of them as:

    1. Trying to preserve some of their leverage against travel providers who are eroding their margins.
  • Making defensive moves in anticipation of Google disrupting their business model.
  • That isn t to say that consolidation in the online booking industry is consumer-friendly. And consumer experiences vary. But online travel agency sites are hardly gaining market power .

    How to Recover Data from Failed Raid 1? #recover #data #from


    #

    Restore Data from Failed Raid 1

    RAID 1 also known as Disk mirroring, is the replication of data to two or more disks. It is good option for applications that require high performance such as transactional applications, email and operating systems. While using RAID 1, an exact copy of data is created on two or more discs. This technique will give more reliability and read performance. The only issue is storage capacity (the total storage used by RAID 1 will be equal to capacity of the smallest disk).

    However, RAID users may struggle a lot if data gets inaccessible due to Raid 1 drive failure. Let us know in which situations Raid 1 drive get failed on a Windows computer:

    • Occurrence of more number of bad sectors on hard disk may result in raid 1 drive failure
    • If you do any mistake while changing file system, then RAID 1 drive may fail to work further
    • OS crash is the other common reason for failure of RAID 1 drive
    • Failure of RAID technology can also make drive unreadable and useless

    Once the RAID 1 drive gets failed it will show different kind of error messages like:

    • Storecenter disk failure
    • Critical error on RAID 1 drive
    • Failed hard drive: RAID1

    In case, you come across above mentioned errors, then how will you solve them? How will you get back data from failed RAID 1 drive? Dont worry you can easily recover failed raid 5 array. raid 10 and raid 0 by using proficient data recovery program.

    Software to extract data from failed RAID 1:

    Yodot Hard Drive Recovery tool will help you to retrieve data from failed RAID 1 drive. This program has the ability for recovering data in all kind of risky conditions like RAID1 drive corruption, OS crash and disk failure. Addition to RAID 1, it can retrieve data from RAID 10. RAID 5 and RAID 0 on Windows system. Anyone can use this software easily because of its user friendly UI design. If you feel any difficulty while performing data retrieval process, you can contact same to the 27×7 technical team through mail or phone call. The utility can get back data from different brands of RAID drive such as Intel and Seagate. Apart from RAID drives, the tool is helpful in restoring data from internal / external hard disk, USB flash drive, mmeory cards, SSD and many other storage drives. This application can be used on various versions of Windows OS (Windows Vista, Windows XP, Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 8.1, Windows 10, Windows Server 2003 and 2008).

    Procedure to get back data from failed RAID 1 drive:

    • First, connect failed RAID 1 drive to a healthy Windows system
    • Then, download and install Yodot Hard Drive Recovery software on the computer
    • Once installation is over, run the application in order to start recovery process
    • Tool will show two options “Partition Recovery” and “Formatted / Reformatted Recovery” in main screen
    • Choose “Partition Recovery” to get back data from RAID 1 drive
    • Next, this program will display list of logical and external drives detected in system
    • Select the partition which contains RAID 1 drive
    • Then, software will start scanning process, wait for few minutes till it gets finished
    • Later, you will see data in two views such as “Data view” and “File Type View”
    • Mark the required files or else click on “Skip” button to select all files by default
    • Then, save extracted files to a desired location other than source location

    Important Tips.

    • Be careful while changing file system, chances are there to commit mistake here
    • Maintain significant data on some other storage devices to handle sudden data loss situations

    INCOME FROM HOME-BASED TRAVEL AGENCY

    Athena in Fairfield, California

    48 months ago

    VOA in Ottawa, Ontario said: PLEASE CAN SOMEONE IN CANADA OR the U.S. PLEASE TELL ME APPROXIMATELY HOW MUCH ONE CAN MAKE AS HOME-BASED TRAVEL AGENT? PLEASEEEEEE HELP! I really interested in this but I would like to know if it is worth it. I like traveling myself.

    Hey, I see no one has responded to you, which is wrong. I went to college and earned 3 certificates in Travel in 2008. I started a home-based business through a host agency for a brief time. If you have a good host agency that is legit, and that pays a good commission split (with low fees), and that has good training and a good reputation, you could do o.k. But, you have to hustle to find your business, and you are in competition with the internet. None of these agencies give you leads, the only one I know is American Express, and you have to have sold approx. $100,000 dollars worth of travel in order to work with them. However, if you find a niche, and a good agency, it is worthwhile because you can travel with FAM trips, and get diccounted travel.

    Look on NACTA to find a certified, bonified host agency. Check everything out to see which one suits you, and call them to see how they represent themselves on the phone.

    Blessings, keep me posted; happy holidays.

    Mysql can t create #restoring #possible #half #written #data #pages #from


    #

    01-09-2008 07:14 PM

    Mysql can’t create/write to mysql.pid

    Ok. having some issues with getting Mysql up and running.
    the system..
    PII box with 512 ram
    Fedora 7 (Moonshine)
    Mysql-5.0.45-linux-i686 (that is the build I downloaded.

    Everytime I try to run the mysqld_safe script I get
    nohub: ignoring input and redirecting stderr to stdout
    Starting mysqld daemon with databases from /var/lib/mysql
    STOPPING server from pid file /var/run/mysqld/mysqld.pid

    Now after extensive searching through the data bases here I ended up in /var/log/mysqld.log.
    Now I see when I started the server each time and what happened. Each time mysqld started, I get a database was not shut down properly, then a bunch a stuff about restoring half written pages, apply batch of log records, progress in percents followed by a bunch of numbers 3-99, apply batch completed (everything up till this point I am not too worried about because I think that the next 2 lines explains why the data base was not shut down properly.
    [ERROR] /usr/local/mysql/bin/mysqld: can’t create/write to file ‘/var/run/mysqld/mysqld.pid’ (Errcode: 2)
    [ERROR] Can’t start server; can’t create PID file no such file or directory.
    mysqld ended

    (I assume that the 080108 and time stamps were not important so have eliminated them.)

    When I look for /var/run/mysqld/mysqld.pid it does not exist at all, nor does the directory /var/run/mysqld.

    Now does this mean I missed something in the install process, or is there a setting somewhere that I have wrong. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Also I hope this was the right forum to put this in (it was either this one or the server forum, hopefully a mod will move if it should be in the server forum to prevent me from double posting. thanks.)

    No if you did it as root, you wont get permission denied, that don’t happen to root.

    And I’m sorry, somehow I missed this when I first read it, but by all means if you don’t have the /var/run/mysqld directory, go ahead and create it, and make sure mysql.mysql owns it. That does in fact seem to be what its complaining about.

    Thank-you, it is now up and running. yay. I was soo close to on my own, but thankfully there are forums out there. KnightHawk, I thank you very much.
    I am so glad I switched to Linux, in less than a week since I downloaded it onto the old computer I feel like I know 20 times more about my operating system than I ever did with Windows. once again, thanks.

    Popular cities in USA

    USA overview

    The United States of America, sprawling across the middle of North America. includes 48 mainland states, Hawaii to the southwest and Alaska to the north. American Samoa, Guam, Marianas, Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands are also part of US territories.

    In this vast nation, breathtaking natural wonders compete for your attention with mammoth and fascinating manmade cities of towering steel and glass. Travellers arriving on flights to America have a huge choice of fascinating destinations to explore. The energy and creativity of New York City have made it the cultural, fashion and financial capital of the US. New England is steeped in history and blessed with beautiful scenery, especially in autumn when the changing foliage creates a spectacular blaze of colour. The Blues Highway, from New Orleans in Louisiana through Mississippi and Memphis to Chicago, is a classic road trip along the trail of America’s music legends.

    Florida is about beaches and theme parks, from Disney World to nearby Orlando’s Universal Studios and SeaWorld.

    On the West Coast, popular California boasts a spectacular rugged northern coastline and the majestic Sierra Nevada mountains. The Napa Valley wine region is a magnet for foodies and wine connoisseurs, LA is the home of Hollywood and San Diego enjoys a relaxed West-Coast vibe.

    Less.

    USA climate

    Given its size, the climate varies throughout the US but some regions experience the changing seasons more intensely than others. The West Coast enjoys fine weather  year-round, while the Pacific Northwest Coast (Washington, Oregon) has cool summers and mild winters. The Midwest is known for its intense summers and winters and frequent tornadoes and thunderstorms, while Florida enjoys the warmest winters on the eastern coast.

    When to fly to USA

    There’s never really a bad time to catch flights to the US, but New York is most pleasant in spring and autumn. May and June are comfortably warm, while LA gets hottest in August and September.

    San Francisco is  pleasant year-round, while Las Vegas is best enjoyed in spring and autumn. Orlando is teeming with families during US summer holidays (July and August), when temperatures can reach 37 degrees Celsius.

    Cheap flights to the US are always found during the off season.

    Getting around USA

    Americans love their cars and their road trips, but there are many low-cost airlines, including no-frills leader Southwest, JetBlue, AirTran and Spirit Airlines to fly you around quicker.

    If you’re intent on hitting the highways a la Route 66,  you’ll find all the major car rental agencies at most US airports, including Budget, Dollar, Hertz and Thrifty.

    By bus: GotoBus.com has a handy online service for more than 100 bus companies and tours throughout the US, from budget to luxury options.

    By rail: AmTrak (www.amtrak.com) covers the States and the major cities in Canada. Check online for routes and weekly specials.

    USA insider information

    Things to do in America

    • New York is a Mecca for shoppers, from mega-department and fashion stores to cutting-edge designer boutiques. Serious shoppers can maximize their time by taking a tour of one of the shopping districts. Shop Gotham’s two-hour walking tours (from about US$25) have been likened to having a shopaholic New Yorker show you the coolest places to shop.
    • Get a culture fix at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music, which presents an annual program of mostly free recitals and concerts by students, faculty and guest artists.
    • Orlando’s majestic Harry P. Leu Gardens are a 20-hectare botanical oasis in the middle of the city. On site is a restored 19th century farmhouse, now a museum that evokes a time when citrus, rather than theme parks, dominated the region. (Gardens open daily from 9am-5pm; adult/child US$7/2; free admission on Mondays).
    • In Las Vegas start the day with an all-you-can-eat buffet breakfast at the “killer whale in a sea of buffets” – at the Spice Market Buffet at the Aladdin Resort & Casino.
    • Take a historic musical journey along the Blues Highway, from the Dixieland Jazz bars of New Orleans, to Memphis (and Elvis’s Graceland) and the blues trail along the Mississippi Delta to Chicago. The classic road trip takes you through the home of the blues. For information on festivals and events along the way, check out www.msbluestrail.org .

    How much do you tip in America?

    • Between 15 and 20 per cent is standard in the US. Irate waiters have been known to follow non-tipping diners onto the street demanding an explanation.

    Best Days Of The Week To Book Airfare, From Jeanenne Tornatore

    Best Days Of The Week To Book Airfare, From Jeanenne Tornatore (VIDEO)

    Orbitz Travel Expert Jeanenne Tornatore shared a few handy tips on when to book airfare for the cheapest rates possible.

    “When you’re looking at when to book, earlier in the week can be better, since a lot of airlines put their fare sales out earlier in the week,” she explained, suggesting Tuesday and Wednesday as the most cost-effective days to book flights.

    If you know you will be traveling during the busy summer season, Jeanenne recommends booking farther in advance, especially for popular destinations.

    “Fare prices go up as flights get fuller, and some of them will get booked to capacity during the busier summer months,” she told us.

    As far as specific time of day, Jeanenne told us that some people believe midnight is the best time, as some companies upload their most recent options at that time.

    “I personally don’t stay up that late!” she laughed, “but if you’re looking for a deal, try midnight.”

    Ebola travel: South Africa bans incomers from W Africa – BBC

    Ebola travel: South Africa bans incomers from W Africa

    21 August 2014

    Image caption Kenya has not reported any cases of Ebola, but is a common transit point for African travellers

    South Africa says non-citizens arriving from Ebola-affected areas of West Africa will not be allowed into the country, with borders closed to people from Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone.

    All non-essential outgoing travel to the affected countries has been banned.

    Senegal also said it was suspending flights with Ebola-affected countries, and closing the border with Guinea.

    Cameroon and the Ivory Coast earlier imposed travel bans, despite World Health Organization warnings not to.

    Medium-risk

    South African nationals will be allowed to re-enter the country when returning from high-risk countries, but will undergo strict screening, the health ministry said on Thursday.

    Usual screening procedures are in place for those who travel between Nigeria, Kenya and Ethiopia, which have been defined as medium-risk countries.

    Image caption Nigeria stepped up its airport screening procedures after a number of Ebola cases were confirmed

    South Africa has experienced two Ebola scares in recent weeks, involving passengers arriving from Liberia and Guinea, but the country has so far remained Ebola-free.

    Johannesburg has one of the major transit airports, connecting southern Africa with the rest of the continent. Several airlines, including British Airways and Emirates Airlines, have stopped flights to some of the affected countries.

    Meanwhile, Senegal’s interior ministry announced on Friday it was closing the land borders with Guinea “once again”.

    Senegal shut its border with Guinea for the first time in March after the virus reached the capital Conakry.

    In a statement, it said this extends to “air and sea borders for aircraft and ships from the Republic of Guinea, Sierra Leone and Liberia”.

    AU team

    Separately, the African Union (AU) announced plans to send a special team to the four affected countries.

    The six-month-long operation, involving volunteer doctors, nurses and medical personnel, will cost about $25m (£15m) and begin immediately, the AU said in a statement.

    Aid workers and medical staff are most exposed to the virus, and have been most at risk of becoming infected. Two US aid workers were discharged from hospital on Tuesday, after recovering from the virus they contracted in Liberia.

    The supply of the experimental drug used to treat the couple, ZMapp, has been exhausted.

    As Ebola has no known cure, it is being controlled by isolating victims and those who have come into contact with them.

    Liberia’s attempt to prevent the spread of the virus by imposing quarantines has led to unrest .

    How to Mail Merge Address Labels Using Excel and Word: 14


    #

    How to Mail Merge Address Labels Using Excel and Word

    Learning to use Mail Merge in Microsoft Word can be a daunting task if you’re trying to use Microsoft Help. We’ll outline a much more linear process — creating an address file in Excel, merging in Word, and adding intents and finer details. This simple process can save you hours of fussing around with labels, ensuring you don’t resort to handwriting them later!

    Note: This is for Office 2003; instructions for other versions may vary.

    Steps Edit

    Create an address file in Microsoft Excel by inserting names and addresses in the following manner:

    Row 1 should have the headings before you start to add the addresses from row 2 onwards

    • Place the first names in Column A.
    • Place the last names in Column B.
    • Place the street addresses in Column C.
    • Place the cities or towns in Column D.
    • Place the county in Column E.
    • Place the postal codes in Column F.
    • Save the file. Remember the location and name of the file.
    • Close Excel.

    Open Word and go to “Tools/Letters” and “Mailings/Mail Merge”.

    • If the Task Pane is not open on the right side of the screen, go to View/Task Pane and click on it. The Task Pane should appear.

    Fill the Labels radio button In the Task Pane.

    Click on Label Options and choose the label you are using from the list. Click OK once you have chosen.

    Click on Next: “Select Recipients”.

    Click on “Browse” and browse to the file you just saved in Excel and saved in My Documents. Open this file and a dialog box will open. All recipients should be selected by default. If not, do so and click OK.

    Click on Next: “Arrange your labels”.

    Click on “More items.. ” Leave Database fields (top right) selected and click on the fields you want inserted. Click on them in the order they will appear on the label. This is normally First Name, Last Name, Street Address, City, county, Postal code. Ignore the fact that they all end up on a single line, when you’re done selecting you can add spaces and carriage returns where you want them on the label. When you have all fields inserted click OK. If you forget one place the cursor where you want it to go (the field to the right of the cursor will probably turn gray—that’s OK), then click on “More items. ” again and choose the field you want to add. Click CLOSE on the window once you have finished inserting all the fields you require.

    Add spaces and carriage returns so the label looks correct. Ignore it when the field after the location for either one turns grey the space will be added instead of replacing the field.

    We nudge the whole address slightly to the right by “increasing the indent” once. This depends on the size of the label you are using, but looks better!

    • If everything is where you want it click on Update All Labels. You should see the fields copied to all labels.

    Click on Next: “Preview your labels”.

    If you are satisfied click on Next: “Complete the Merge”. At this screen you can edit individual labels or print. it is worth clicking on EDIT INDIVIDUAL LABELS and clicking ALL and OK even if you are happy with it so that you can access all the pages of labels.

    • Save the file before you do anything else!

    You can also use commercial online tools to perform your mail merge to create labels. The advantage is that they can be easier and quicker to use.

    Visit Washington DC

    Library of Congress

    The three buildings of the Library of Congress house more than 158 million items, enough to sate any bibliophile. There are more than just books among its vast collection: You’ll also find sheet music, film, rare literature and other resources. Take a guided tour of the world’s largest library to find out more about its beautiful architecture and rotating exhibitions.

    Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception

    Prepare to be impressed: the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception is the largest Catholic church in the country, and this title is well-earned. Built in a Neo-Byzantine style, it features a large dome that is decorated both on the inside and the outside, enormous vaulted archways, dozens of interior chapels and many works of art.

    National Gallery of Art

    A massive art museum with a huge collection of masterpieces, the National Gallery of Art is always popular among tourists for its easy accessibility and free entry. Its permanent collection includes important artists such as Van Gogh, Renoir, Monet, Matisse and Pollock, while a rotating exhibition of art exposes visitors to a wide range of historically significant pieces.

    Old Ebbitt Grill

    Founded in 1856, Old Ebbitt Grill lives up to its name — it’s the city’s oldest restaurant and bar. Stop in between sightseeing destinations (it’s right by the White House) and tuck into traditional American platters such as lump crab cakes, glazed meatloaf and pumpkin French toast. Happy hour gets you half-priced oysters at the bar.

    Located in Penn Quarter, Rasika is hugely popular for its modern Indian cuisine. Among its numerous awards, Rasika has the honor of making diners salivate over an unexpected dish: fried spinach. Known as Palak Chaat, these crispy baby spinach leaves mixed with a sweet yogurt and chutney never fail to enchant the taste buds.

    Founding Fathers

    A sprawling restaurant in Foggy Bottom, Founding Farmers serves up tasty American fare with customer favorites that are too many to list: crispy chicken and waffles, honeyed skillet cornbread, an incredible red velvet cake plus a handful of substantial vegan entrees. Top it all off with a cocktail containing Founding Fathers’ own whisky or gin!

    John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts

    Featuring celebrated groups such as the National Symphony Orchestra, the Washington National Opera, the Suzanne Farrell Ballet and more, the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts is the premier place to get your performing arts fix. Seven different venues give you plenty of options and genres to choose from!

    This low-key bar takes after speakeasies of the Prohibition era, with an unadorned black door leading to an unpretentious space serving top-notch mixed drinks. A strict no-standing policy means you won’t be fighting for elbow room at the bar. Sit back and take in the ambience, but be sure you make a reservation beforehand.

    Madam’s Organ

    Noticeable by the giant, red-haired mural on the side of the building, Madam’s Organ is beloved for having live music every day of the week, covering everything from blues to salsa to bluegrass. The name is a play on words of the name of the surrounding neighborhood, Adams Morgan, and demonstrates the bar’s eclectic, diverse and fun-loving clientele.

Just drop us a line with what you are looking for and we will get back to you with a quote. Remember though, the cheapest tickets to Pakistan are usually time sensitive offers and availability changes constantly.

    Whatever your air travel requirements are, the team here at Tickets to Pakistan is here to help!

    How to get

    Getting to Pakistan is easier than it ever has been with many major airlines serving cities in Pakistan directly or via hubs in Europe, Asia or the Middle East. If time is an issue, you might of course want to consider taking a direct flight with Pak International Airlines. As with most destinations, generally the more flexible you are, the better and lower the price will be.

    There are numerous airlines all with their own advantages and disadvantages in terms of connection times, choice of stopover options, onboard facilities etc. Some of the main airlines include Qatar Airways (connecting via Doha), Etihad Airways (travelling via Abu Dhabi), Emirates (connecting in Dubai), Gulf Air (transiting in Bahrain), Turkish Airlines (flying via Istanbul), Oman Air (travelling through Muscat) and Uzbekistan Airways (via Tashkent).

    All airlines offers a variety of timings and class of travel. Economy class fares are usually far more restrictive than those in Business or First, however, they are of course considerably cheaper. If you think you might need to make changes to your ticket, it is worth checking the terms and conditions or speaking to one of our sales advisers regarding the options.

    When to go

    Many people travelling to Pakistan from the UK will be going to visit friends and relatives whether for a special occasion such as Eid or Ramadan or for a wedding, birthday, family celebration or a more sombre occasion such as a funeral. If this is the case, then circumstances will naturally dictate when you need to fly. Even if your dates are fixed, however, there are ways to save on your flight tickets if you can be flexible a day or two either side of your preferred dates.

    Our search engine or sales advisers can assist you with this. If you are travelling to Pakistan for a holiday then when to go will depend on how you like your weather and what part of the country that you are travelling to. The south side (including the cities of Karachi and Lahore) gets very hot and humid during the summer months and daytime temperatures can be well in excess of 40C. That is of course great if you like heat but not ideal for sightseeing. It is probably also worth avoiding the monsoon season of July and August unless you have a good umbrella and plenty of waterproof clothing! In contrast, the north is usually cooler than the south and indeed can be very cold in the mountainous areas during the winter months. Consequently if you are heading to the northern part of the country, it may be worth considering planning your trip for the pleasant spring and warmer summer times.

    What to do

    Pakistan is a fascinating country with a rich history, culture and friendly, welcoming people. Just about wherever you go in Pakistan you will find a wealth of things to do and places to visit. From trekking in the mountainous northern regions to sightseeing in the cities of the south, we will give you some pointers below on how to make the most out of your stay.

    For the adventurous types, northern region is a very special place and affords fabulous outdoor and trekking opportunities. It has been estimated that in the Himalayas, Karakoram and Pamirs mountains, there are over a hundred mountains at 7000m metres or higher. Many of these are in or visible from northern region.

    If sightseeing is your thing, the south of the country offers a wide diversity of activities to ensure you have a fun-packed stay. The city of Rawalpindi just south of Islamabad offers a glimpse into traditional Pakistani life with bazaars and great examples of regional architecture. Islamabad itself has plenty to offer including the Faisal Masjid Mosque which is one of the largest in the world. The National Gallery is well worth checking out too as it has displays of many important national and regional artworks.

    For museum lovers, the National Museum in Karachi is a must. Also in Karachi is the impressive mausoleum of Quaid-e-Azam’s Mazar (the founder of the country).

    Although it has seen its fair share of troubles in recent years due to its political significance, the region of Kashmir is simply stunning with its breathtaking mountains (including K2, the world’s second largest) and the Baltoro Glacier which is the largest glacier outside of the north and south poles.

    Cheap Flights to Melbourne

    Melbourne overview

    When is the best time to fly to Melbourne?

    Peak Season

    Victoria’s lively capital always has something going on, so there’s no bad time to look for cheap flights to Melbourne. Christmas/New Years, school holidays, sporting events and festivals are generally peak periods when the city is busier than usual, so be sure to check what’s on in the city when searching for flight tickets to Melbourne. Some of Melbourne’s most popularly attended events include: the Australian Open Tennis (late January), the Australian Formula One Grand Prix (early March), Melbourne’s Food and Wine Festival (March) and the Melbourne Cup (early November).

    Car Hire in Italy – Compare cheap rental deals from easyCar

    #cheapest rental cars
    #

    Search for car hire in Italy

    Italy is arguably the most beautiful country on Earth; it’s certainly one which continues to attract huge numbers of holiday-makers every year, keen to experience its sights, sounds and tastes. The birthplace of modern civilisation, Italy is a country that offers huge variety, with something for everyone, whether that something is lazing by a pool or gazing at ancient mosaics.

    Things to do

    Opera: when thinking about Italy, many people will have an aria running through their head, whether consciously or not, thus it’s almost a crime to visit the country that invented opera and not attend a performance. Most cities and towns will be putting on a show, but one of the greatest places on earth, let alone just in Italy, to see an opera is Verona. The city, famous for its star-cross’d lovers, is home to an ancient amphitheatre, the Arena di Verona, which is one of the most atmospheric venues. Ticket-holders can choose between plush cushioned seats or sitting on the thousand-year old steps and light candles. The Arena comes alive each summer during the Verona Opera Festival; if you’re there during this time, take the hire car and go – don’t risk missing out.

    Shopping: Italy is famed for its stylish residents and haute-couture fashion houses and if shopping’s your game, then Milan’s the name. Contrary to popular belief, it’s not all Gucci, Armani and Prada, though such designers do grace the ‘golden rectangle’ shopping streets. There are also ample opportunities to pick up goods, including designer items, at lower prices as Milan also possess outlet stores. That’s providing you don’t mind being seen in last season’s trends.

    People watching: Venice, with its bridges and canals is a wonderful city, one in which it’s great to do a spot of people watching in-between seeing the sights or taking a gondola cruise. Head to St Mark’s Square and stop for a hot chocolate while watching people go by. Yes, there will be a lot of tourists, but there are plenty of locals too. It’s a fascinating pastime, even better in February, during the Venice Carnival. This annual event sees people dress up in masks and elaborate costumes, parading the streets without a car in the world. Sit back and drink it all in.

    Architecture: while there are incredible structures all over Italy, if you’ve only got time for one architectural stop, then make it Rome. Here you will find the Colosseum, the Pantheon, St Peter’s Basilica, the Trevi Fountain, the Spanish Steps. the list goes on. Though many of these architectural gems are in close proximity, to see them all could take ages – in fact, to see all the sights on the movie-themed ‘Roman Holiday’ tour, you’d need to walk for several hours. Hence it might be a better use of time to brave the erratic yet exciting roads and rent a car.

    Antiquity: with an exhibition on at the moment in London, you may have heard more about Pompeii and Herculaneum recently. These are the two cities that were devastated by Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD, but both were affected in different ways. The cities have been partly excavated and the remains are fascinating. In Pompeii are the famous casts of poor local people, caught in their death throes, whereas in Herculaneum are the ghoulish boat sheds that contain numerous skeletal remains. However, the ruins of these cities give an interesting insight into how these poor people lived and a visit is far more about celebrating their life than their unfortunate demise.

    Further afield

    If Italy is a boot, then Sicily is the football that the boot is kicking, situated off the southern-most tip. It is a large island – again, it would make sense to explore with a hire car, rather than rely on public transport – with its own culture and language, distinct from Italian (though today Italian dominates).

    It is perhaps best well-known as the home of Mount Etna, but fans of Italian detective fiction will recognise it from the ‘Inspector Montalbano’ series. There is a lot to see and do aside from the beaches; Sicily boasts several archaeological sites, temples and castles. There is a heavy Greek influence, which is evident in its art and architecture – such as the Greek Theatre in Taormina. In truth, most of the island’s attractions are on the cultural side, but there is a number of good restaurants, bars and clubs in Palermo, Catania and Taormina.
