Cheap Airfares

Cheapest airfare for international flights

For international flights, don’t count on the search engines

Search engines like Hipmunk and Kayak are great for finding flights within the U.S. but sometimes they’re not so good for international flights, especially those that start or end in exotic places like Asia, India, or Africa. That’s because not all foreign airlines make their fares available to the search engines, and even those which do sometimes don’t list their best fares. International engines like Momondo. Skyscanner. and Mobissimo sometimes do better, but even they sometimes miss fares offered by certain airlines.

So what do you do? First off, try a travel agent in the country you’re visiting. Yes, a travel agent. Years ago you stopped using travel agents for domestic flights because you realized you could get the best fares yourself online. (Either that, or you’re so young you never used a travel agent in the first place.) Well, that goes out the window as soon as you’re talking international fares. Case in point: Once the best fare I could get for Japan to India (Osaka to Delhi) from Kayak, Orbitz, etc. was $1641. I walked across the street to a travel agent in Osaka and got a price of $1108 a whopping $538 savings. (And yes, that budget price included taxes and all applicable fees.)

I had a similar experience in India, trying to get a flight to Hong Kong. I spent hours on the net and I think the best I could come up with was around $1200. I mentioned my problem to the hotel staff, and they said they were sure they could arrange a ticket for me. I asked them to go ahead, and sure enough, they did, for around $566 — less than half price! (I tipped appropriately.) The point is, you just can’t expect all international flights to show up in the search engines.

If you go this route you need to make sure that you’re not being scammed by buying a fake ticket, and that’s especially true in India. But as long as you work with staff at a hotel you should be okay, because if they scammed you then you could tell the police exactly who they were, so they’re not likely to do so. Just don’t buy from someone who doesn’t have a permanent business location.

(Incidentally, those tickets I just mentioned were all before I stopped flying, because flying causes climate change . Now I travel by train and cargo ship, and I bought carbon offsets for the travel I already took.)

Next tip: Check the price at the airlines directly. Find the airlines that serve the country you’re flying to or from. (Use Bing or Google.) You can then check the airlines’ websites or call them to get fares, which will often be substantially cheaper than what you can find in the search engines. One Australian reader says that he saved $200 by going directly to Qantas over what he could find on Kayak and the other engines.

Finally, our general tips for getting cheap airfare apply to international fares as well. For example, round-trips are often cheaper than one-ways for some inexplicable reason, so if you’re planning an around-the-world trip full of one-ways, you might save by buying roundtrip tickets and then not using the return trip. Also, remember that when you insist on flying on certain days you’ll usually pay more, so if your schedule is flexible,pick your travel destination first. and then find the cheapest travel dates for that destination. If you start your research with hard-wired dates in hand, you’re unilkely to get the best deal.

[an error occurred while processing this directive] U.S. to Bermuda, Cancun, etc. USA3000 offers service between select U.S. cities and Bermuda, Cancun, La Romana, Puerto Plata, and Punta Cana. In Sept. 2004 we checked and found a roundtrip fare between Baltimore and Bermuda for $160 (!), while the best Orbitz could find was closer to $400.

Other international sites

Other sites we found which have good international fares are:

  • Anywhere to anywhere: Skyscanner (reportedly very good with European flights, and lets you search for flights to or from an entire country, without having to enter the city)
  • U.S. to/from Canada: Air Canada
  • Canada to everywhere: Sears Travel
  • Australia to Australia: Fare Hunter
  • Other international, especially Europe: Mobissimo Momondo.
    • Momondo’s flexible dates feature is awesome. It gives you a GRAPH showing the price for every single day in any month you choose. Sweet! Unfortunately, this feature doesn’t always work, though.
  • Tip for flying into Europe

    Kelly Fine writes: “We found that it was much cheaper to fly to London on one airline and fly from London to the Continent on another airline. This seemed to be true no matter what city in Europe we wanted to go to. And it was impossible to find a cheap flight from anywhere to Bratislava, so we found a flight to Vienna, which is only a little over an hour by bus from Bratislava. Flying into central and eastern Europe is much more expensive than flying to western Europe.”

    Courier travel: A thing of the past

    For years I used to mention the great deals you could get as a courier, by carrying documents or packages in exchange for a deeply discounted fare. But over the years I had to slowly remove the courier websites from my list one at a time as they went out of business, and now there are pretty much none left. Well, there might be a couple, but they can’t really save you any money.

    So what happened?

    • The Internet now lets companies send documents quickly and cheaply, so fewer couriers are needed.
    • Post 9/11 regulations make it harder to transport items that aren’t actually yours.
    • The fact that airlines now charge for checked baggage makes courier travel a worse deal (both for the courier company as well as for the traveler).
    • Travelers now have easy access to discounted fares through the Internet, so they can already save a lot compared to what they might have had to pay in the past.

    Here’s a good article from MSNBC which explains the change. Sorry, the party’s over.

    Thanks for visiting, and I hope you liked the site. I’ll leave you with a couple of hand-picked ads.

    5 sweet international destinations where strong dollars mean cheaper vacations

    A swanky room overlooking a sunny piazza in Rome costs a lot less this year. So does sipping espresso, nibbling on croissants, and dinning on steak frites in Parisian cafes.

    Favorable currency exchange rates are making overseas travel far more affordable for Americans. Depending on the country, hotels, restaurants and shopping may be anywhere from 15% to 50% cheaper now than this time last year.

    You can thank sputtering overseas economies for the more tourist-friendly prices. In the ever-changing currency markets, the U.S. dollar is once again in demand.

    Of course, it s welcome news for anyone who is planning an overseas trip. Some people who ve been unable to afford international travel may finally be able take that dream vacation.

    It definitely has an impact, and yes, it does encourage people who are on the fence, said Andi McClure-Mysza, co-president of Montrose Travel, a travel agency in Montrose, Calif. near Los Angeles, that books more than $280 million in travel annually.

    Customers routinely bring up exchange rates in planning their trips and deciding where to go, she said. Getting a $5,000 vacation for $4,000, when taking into account potential savings, can be a powerful lure. Currency rates don t affect airline ticket prices, which happen to be relatively high at the moment. But they can mean savings on what visitors spend their money on after arriving.

    Keep in mind that package tours don t necessarily take fluctuations in currencies into account. It depends on the operator and the contracts it cuts with hotel, restaurants and ground transportation suppliers.

    Through the first 10 months of 2014, U.S. citizens made 57 million international trips, or 9.6% more than during the same period a year earlier. A buzzing U.S. economy and those exchange rates means more growth is likely in 2015.

    Here are a few destinations where exchange rates will make your dollars stretch a lot further.

    12 Tips to Make International Travel Easier #travel #deals

    #international travel

    Blog Post

    Being in a strange place can be invigorating and eye-opening. Some of my favorite travel memories include an early-morning run along the Danube River in Budapest, touring the temples of Angkor Wat, and having late-night drinks and steak in Uruguay.

    There have also been plenty of business trips where the only sites I saw were those visible from my hotel room window, because I was too busy running from one meeting to another.

    Regardless of what type of trip you’re on, there are several steps you can take to ease an overseas journey. Here are 12 of my favorite international travel tips:

    Hotel business cards. The first thing I do when arriving at a hotel overseas is take a business card from the front desk. That way, if I ever get lost, I have the name and address of the hotel in the local language. Large populations around the world speak English, but having something in a local language that I can show locals and taxi drivers is an extra bit of insurance.

    The six-month passport rule. The expiration date on your passport is actually a bit deceiving. The U.S. lets you use your passport up to the date inside the cover. However, several countries will deny travelers entry if the passport expires in less than six months. Why? If for some unexpected reason you get stuck overseas longer than planned, that country wants to ensure that you have a valid passport to eventually travel back to the United States. To avoid any problems, I always renew my passport during a downtime in travel, about nine months prior to the expiration date.

    Getting cash. The way to get cash is usually an ATM, but many U.S. banks charge steep fees for using an ATM that is out of network. You can take out a large amount of cash at the airport ATM so you pay that fee only once, but it’s never advisable to carry large sums of cash. Plus, you risk having too much local currency left over at the end of your trip. Charles Schwab and Fidelity both offer checking accounts that have no minimum balance requirements and reimburse you for all ATM fees, including those from overseas.

    Credit cards. The best exchange rates are often found using your credit card. However, many credit cards will tack on a foreign transaction fee, sometimes as high as 3 percent. It’s a pointless fee that no traveler should ever pay. The Chase Sapphire Preferred card and Platinum American Express are two of the cards that don’t levy this fee. Also, never have a hotel or restaurant convert a charge into dollars first. It’s a bad deal.

    Fraud alerts. Notify your credit card company’s fraud department of what countries you will be visiting and on what dates. This way, they won’t think your card is stolen and shut it off just when you need it the most. Be mindful of any countries you might be changing planes in; you might need to make a charge during your layover, especially if there’s a delay.

    Credit card chips. U.S. credit cards rely on magnetic strips on the back that are swiped at vendors. In Europe, cards have a chip embedded in them which—when paired with a PIN—are used for purchases. It’s a much more secure way of charging goods, but hasn’t been adopted in the States. Most vendors overseas can still swipe your card. But train ticket machines, gas stations, and other machines where we pay without interacting with a person often reject cards that are swiped. Getting a chip and PIN card from a U.S. bank is hard. But many credit cards are now coming with chip and signature technology.

    Medicine. I always carry an eye mask and earplugs in my medicine bag because you never know what your hotel room is going to be like. But I also carry Advil, NyQuil, Imodium A-D, Tums, and a handful of other key medications. Yes, even the most historic European neighborhood has a drugstore. But do you want to be running around Germany late at night, trying to translate “diarrhea”? If you’re heading to third-world countries, stocking up on the right drugs is even more important. Many travelers fill a prescription in advance for the antibiotic ciprofloxacin and bring it with them just in case.

    Travel alerts. It’s a good idea to check the State Department’s travel warnings and alerts. It’s also smart to print out the address and contact information of the local embassy.

    Foreign airline sites. If you are on a tight budget—and don’t have to book through your company’s travel department—look at overseas airlines’ sites in their home countries. I recently booked a ticket from southern Italy to northern Italy on Alitalia. The airline’s U.S. site wanted twice the price of the Italian site. I’m not fluent in Italian, but Google Chrome translated every page for me. I paid in euros, using a credit card with no foreign transaction fees.

    Data roaming. Set up your cell phone to avoid international data roaming. Many business travelers have an international calling and data plan. But infrequent travelers don’t. The biggest costs can come from transmitting data overseas. I was in a remote part of southern San Diego last summer, and my cell phone provider sent me a text alert welcoming me to Mexico. Apparently, I had jumped onto a cell tower in Tijuana. I immediately shut off my data roaming, turning it back on only once I was out of that area.

    Google Maps. I have a great sense of direction and rarely need a map. I know others aren’t as lucky, though, and have come to rely on their cell phones to get around. If you don’t add a data plan to your phone while abroad, you can still jury-rig a crude version. Using the Wi-Fi in your hotel, plot out a few routes you plan to walk that day. Then take a screenshot of those maps. You can later find the photo, zoom in, and follow the path. It’s not ideal, but it’s a work-around.

    Unwanted local currency. I figure out on my last night how much cash I will need and then set aside the leftover money. At checkout the next morning, I take that cash and ask the hotel to apply it to my bill and then pay the remaining balance with my no-foreign-transaction-fee credit card.

    5 Cheap International Holiday Destinations

    We all love going on holiday, but spending thousands of dollars on a trip to a popular international destination may not always be achievable. It is possible, however, to have a great international holiday which fits within your budget if you choose your destination carefully. Read on to find out about some of the best budget destinations worldwide.

    Beijing, China

    Last week, I headed to Beijing. I got myself a really decently priced flight for just over $300 from London with Aeroflot, packed my bags and headed off. Accommodation in the capital is reasonably priced, but its in your day-to-day activities that you’ll see the most savings. On a budget of $80 per day for 2 people, we managed to see all the sites, dine out in exclusive restaurants and have enough left over for shopping. A 15 minute taxi ride in Beijing costs you about $2.5 – unheard of in the west – and a meal for 2 in a western chain about $15. A 3 course dinner in a fancy Persian restaurant in vibrant Sanlitun came to just $30, and a Mojito in cool Hou Hai bar area is $3. Entrance into many attractions is either free (for example the great Military Museum) or very cheap – the most expensive we found was the CCTV tower which came to about $10 each. With these sorts of cheap living costs you’ll have plenty of money to head to the famous Silk Street market to pick up all sorts of bargains on clothes and fabrics.

    Eastern Europe

    It’s not as cheap as it once was, but it’s still possible to do Eastern Europe on a budget. While some destinations like Krakow and Prague are begining to catch on that there is money to be made from tourists – I paid $12 for coffee and a croissant in the Market Square in Krakow –  there are gems to be found even further east. Sarajevo and Belgrade are two excellent locations with low prices for accommodation and dining out and a raw history ready to be explored. The cheap flights to Eastern Europe offered by many budget carriers have been a blessing, so head further east to Bosnia, Serbia, Romania and the Ukraine to get the best of the bargains before they go the way of Poland, Czech Republic and the Baltics by raising their prices to reflect the growing tourist industry.

    Spain, Portugal, Morocco and Tunisia

    If you’re not fussed on accommodation, location, dates and culture then you can get some of the cheapest and best deals online. With a little flexibility, I’ve managed a week in the Algarve for a stunning $120, and 5 days north of Barcelona for $160. I’ve taken a deal to Agadir in Morocco for $250, ditched the hotel after a few days and headed on the bus to Marrakech for half the cost of a normal flight. This idea isn’t for everyone, as these deals are based on limited flight choices, out of the way resorts and normally 2 or 3* accommodation. But if you’re looking at a week in the sun and live near a major airport this is a great way to get a last minute deal. Try for the best cheap deals, and remember not to expect too much accommodation wise, and be prepared to be slightly out of the way from the main tourist attractions.


    A long term favourite, Thailand offers great savings in some of the cheaper resorts. Local transport costs next to nothing, food is delicious and cheap, and the services provided are second to none. Get yourself a massage for $5, and dine out on local specialities for under $10. A major benefit is the bed and breakfasts or guest houses in the country where you can still find rooms for as little as $10 for a decent room. Local sightseeing can be pricey in some of the tourist areas, but off the track you’ll find fantastic savings, souvenirs and friendly locals.

    The Best Time to Buy International Plane Tickets

    Buying international plane tickets mid-week could save you money. (Photo: Hemera Technologies/ Images )

    Related Articles

    Flights can be one of the first things to consider if you’re planning an international trip. Although you might have hotels and transportation to plan, the price of your flight could dictate what destinations you choose based on cost. Flight prices can vary from day to day so checking price comparison websites can help you snag the best deal. However, other factors including the amount of time before you want to travel and the day of the week you book can also impact the final cost of your plane tickets.

    Advance Booking

    Booking tickets in advance can help get flights at a lower price. Rick Seaney, CEO of, recommends buying tickets around four months before you plan to travel. He says that airlines don’t usually release cheaper tickets before this time but, when released, reduced seats are likely to sell quickly. Therefore, you should start checking price comparison websites well before you want to leave.

    Greek debt relief closer than ever but creditors must act, Greek


    Greek debt relief ‘closer than ever’ but creditors must act, Greek prime minister says

    ATHENS Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras kept up his demand for debt relief from international lenders on Tuesday, saying Athens was close to securing a solution to ease its debt mountain but that creditors must meet there commitments.

    Greece wants to wrap up negotiations with the lenders — the European Union and International Monetary Find — on reforms and on debt relief this month.

    It needs another tranche of bailout money, wants to qualify for inclusion in the European Central Bank’s bond-buying program, and seeks to return to bond markets immediately afterwards.

    “We are closer than ever to a substantial solution on debt relief,” said Tsipras reiterating that Greece had already agreed to apply more austerity after its current bailout expires and it was its lenders’ turn to fulfill their promises of discussions about debt relief.

    “Τhe ball is no longer in our court,” he told reporters referring to lenders’ statements on debt relief in past years.

    Despite Greece’s recent statements and a bailout review agreement at staff level, sources close to the lenders have been less optimistic seeing talks on debt relief lasting longer than May.

    This is because of sharp differences between the IMF and Germany, Europe’s paymaster, over the Greece’s fiscal targets. The former says Greece’s target and debt are unsustainable; the latter, with an election coming, is less willing to drop its hard line.

    After six months of tense talks, Athens and the lenders reached a deal last week on a set of additional reforms the country needs to implement in 2019-20, two years after its current, 86-billion euro bailout program expires.

    Greece wants euro zone finance ministers to approve the reforms’ deal at a scheduled Eurogroup meeting on May 22 — a key condition for unlocking vital loans — but also agree on a formula to make its debt sustainable in the medium-term and long term.

    Debt sustainability is key for the European Central Bank and the Washington-based IMF, which participated financially in the country’s first two rescue packages, but has yet to announce whether it will join Greece’s current program, the third since 2010.

    Greek lawmakers are expected to vote on the new austerity package by May 18, before euro zone finance ministers assess the country’s progress.

    Tsipras, who is sagging in opinion polls and whose term expires in 2019, controls 153 lawmakers in the 300-seat parliament and he is expected to pass the bill.

    But the delays in the negotiations have slowed projected economic growth and have exacerbated reform fatigue after seven years of austerity hurting the government’s popularity further.

    Asked whether he was considering a cabinet reshuffle, Tsipras ruled it out.

    “We are not considering it. Our aim now is to speed up work as much as we can,” he said during a visit at the education ministry, where he announced a planned education reform.

    Health Insurance Requirements for J-1/J-2 Visitors

    Whether you are a J-1 student or J-1 scholar at UC Berkeley, health insurance coverage for yourself and all of your accompanying J-2 dependents is required throughout the period of your stay. The required coverage and health insurance plan enrollment depends on both your affiliation at UC Berkeley and U.S. federal requirements (e.g. U.S. Department of State and the Affordable Care Act).

    Visiting Scholars and Visiting Student Researchers

    Visiting Scholars and Visiting Student Researchers’ health insurance benefits are provided through Garnett-Powers Associates (GPA). See the UC Berkeley Visiting Scholar Benefits Program (UCB-VSBP) website for detailed plan and enrollment information.

    Please check with your department administrator regarding any benefits offered to you and your family through your UC Berkeley employment. If you have an insurance plan that meets all of the UC Berkeley and U.S. Department of State requirements but does not include medical evacuation and repatriation of remains, you must purchase supplemental insurance to make sure you also have this requirement covered. One option for supplemental insurance for medical evacuation and repatriation of remains is BETA through BETINS: International Health and Travel Insurance.

    A J-1 student is defined as a degree-seeking student who is enrolled in a UC Berkeley Bachelor’s, Masters, or Doctoral degree program or a student enrolled full time through the UCEAP Program and who has one of the following categories listed in Section 4 of the DS-2019: STUDENT-NON-DEGREE, STUDENT BACHELORS, STUDENT MASTERS OR STUDENT DOCTORATE.

    • Underwritten by an insurance corporation having an A.M. Best rating of ‘‘A-’’ or above; a McGraw Hill Financial/Standard Poor’s Claims paying Ability rating of ‘‘A-’’ or above; a Weiss Research, Inc. rating of ‘‘B+’’ or above; a Fitch Ratings, Inc. rating of ‘‘A-’’ or above; a Moody’s Investor Services rating of ‘‘A3’’ or above; or such other rating as the Department of State may from time to time specify;
    • OR backed by the full faith and credit of the government of the exchange visitor’s home country;
    • OR part of a health benefits program offered on a group basis to employees or enrolled students by a designated sponsor;
    • OR offered through or underwritten by a federally qualified Health Maintenance Organization or eligible Competitive Medical Plan as determined by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.

    Additional Health Insurance Information

    If you are not eligible for the health insurance benefit plans listed above, you must enroll in a plan that meets the Department of State requirements listed above. Options that meet the requirements are available through the Garnett and Powers website. Proof of insurance that meets the Department of State requirements must be provided by the international scholar upon request to ensure compliance with Federal Regulations governing the J-1 Exchange Visitor program.

    International Travel Nursing

    International travel is the future of nursing, says Gary Fanger, founder and owner of an international travel nurse comapny. The nursing shortage is not expected to improve anytime soon. While bringing nurses to the United States from other countries is not the answer to the shortage, it can help while other solutions are put into place.

    Entering U.S. at port of Entry

    List of Volunteer Medical Mission Organizations to forgein countries

    Traveling outside of the United States

    Working outside of the United States is not usually a money making venture, except in the middle east. In general, nurses tend to make less money in other parts of the world. For example, the pay in the UK and Australia is approximately 27 to 36 thousand U.S. dollars a year. If you want to travel to another country, you may want to consider saving money and paying off bills before you go.

    Plan on spending 6 to 8 months in processing before being able to travel. The process of proving your credentials and obtaining a visa still takes awhile even though the United States nursing education is highly regarded in other countries.

    It can be difficult to find companies that send nurses to other countries because there is not much money to be made in doing so. Even more difficult is to find a company that sends nurses to a country that speaks a foreign language.

    If you are really serious about working outside of the U.S. you may want to apply for licensure in where you want to go. The licensure application is often the most difficult and tedious part of the process and staffing companies will take you more seriously. Below is a list of some foreign nursing boards.

Liaison Majestic and Liaison International offer strong coverage for those unexpected illnesses and injuries when you are away from home. Plans include benefits like hazardous sport coverage, terrorism coverage, emergency medical evacuation and much more.

    US Visitor Medical Insurance

    When you or close family members are planning to come to the US for a short-term visit or are moving here permanently, they need some kind of health insurance coverage to protect them in case they have medical problems. These plans are a lower cost alternative to other Travel Health Insurance plans. Scheduled benefit plans like Visitor Secure. Inbound USA. and Visitor Care are a good choice for the cost conscious person.

    Annual Multi-Trip Insurance

    Do you take several trips outside of your Home Country every year? Are you tired of buying a new policy for every trip to provide you with medical and evacuation coverage while you travel? You should take a look at Wander sm Frequent Traveler. Patriot Multi-Trip and Atlas Multi-Trip. Each plan is different and will provide you with good choices for you and your family.

Each visa has specific requirements for eligible plans that must be met prior to getting the visa issued. We have several plans that meet or exceed the requirements for each kind of visa. You can view the information on our Schengen Visa Insurance J-1/J-2 Visa Insurance pages. We provide full benefit schedules, list exclusions and offer online instant applications for each plan we represent. You are welcome to call or email us with any questions.

    Lower Cost US Immigrant Insurance

    When you or close family members are moving here permanently, they need some kind of medical coverage to protect them in case they have medical problems. In most cases immigrants are not immediately eligible for a local insurance plan, or if they are 65+ years old, they will not qualify for Medicare for 5 years. Scheduled benefit plans like Inbound USA. and Visitor Care are a good choice for the cost conscious person needing something short term until they qualify for a local health insurance plan. Inbound Immigrant is renewable for up to 5 years, so this plan is ideal for older immigrants needing coverage until they qualify for Medicare.

    Trip Cancellation Coverage

    RoundTrip from SevenCorners, Travel Basic. Travel Max or Travel Select from Travelex offer very strong trip cancellation policies that cover you for Trip Cancellations, Travel Delays, Baggage Loss or Baggage Delay, Rental Car Protection as well as a small benefit amount for health problems that occur while on your trip.

    International Travel Tips #india #travel

    #international travel

    A Hop Across the Pond: Traveling Internationally

    Passports and Visas

    The first thing you ll need, of course, is a passport. All foreign countries require a passport for entry, even Canada and Mexico (who previously allowed U.S. citizens to enter with only a birth certificate photo ID) will begin requiring passports in the near future. The U.S. Department of State has outlined these regulations:

    1. Passport or other accepted document required for all travel (air/sea) to or from the Caribbean, Bermuda, Central and South America.

    2. Passport or other accepted document required for all air and sea travel to or from Mexico and Canada.

    3. Passport or other accepted document required for all air, sea and land border crossings.

    Depending on where you live there are several places that can house a passport facility. Post Offices, Courthouses, some travel agencies and libraries are all authorized to process passports. Check with the U.S. Department of State. for a listing of the nearest facilities in your zip code.

    Bring along two passport sized photos (obtainable at Kinkos, Sears or AAA), proof of U.S. citizenship and a valid form of photo identification. Make sure to allow for at least 6 weeks between your passport application and your departure date. If you already have a passport, make sure it is valid for at least 6 months after your return from abroad.

    In many countries, a visa is not required for U.S. citizens traveling less than 90 days. In countries that do require a visa, you can typically fill out a form upon arrival for a small fee and receive a one month visa. Some countries in Africa and Asia require visas prior to arrival and for that, you ll need to pay a visit to the country s nearest embassy. Travelers staying longer than 90 days in any one country must procure a visa through a work or school program.

    Once all of your documentation is in order, make copies of your passport, identification, itineraries or any confirmation papers you may be traveling with. Keep the originals on you at all times and keep the copies safely locked in your hotel room.

    Out of Country Travel Procedures

    If it is on either list, then please read the University Policy for travel to Travel Warning Countries for procedures to follow. The traveler is required to submit the Travel Warning Release and Assumption of Risk form, a statement of support from the Dean, in additional a paragraph from you saying how you will mitigate your risks while you are in the travel warning country. For questions, please e-mail Xiujie Sun or call 852-0295/852-0297. Requests to travel to travel warning countries or countries on the CDC Travel precaution list require an additional 15 working days to process.

    Comparing International Travel Insurance #travel #inn

    #travel insurance comparisons

    Related Articles

    International travel insurance provides a security blanket for all sorts of emergencies when you travel abroad, but not all policies are created equal. Don t just sign up for the first policy you come across. Learn how to compare international travel insurance policies.

    Cancellation Coverage

    The most basic thing an international travel insurance plan should do is cover your losses if you must cancel your trip at the last minute or cut the trip short. Compare plans based on what counts as a valid reason for cancellations and what kind of proof you need to provide to have your claim approved. For instance, will a plan cover you if you have a death in the family but not cover you if you have lost your job and can no longer afford the trip? The thing with last-minute emergencies is that you never know what they will be, so looking for a policy that covers a wide range of approved cancellation reasons is beneficial.

    Medical Coverage

    Medical coverage is usually an optional feature with international travel insurance, though some basic level policies offer some minimal coverage for emergencies. Doctors and travel industry experts alike recommend adding medical coverage, especially if you are going to a remote area or if you are going to be doing activities that could lead to injury, like skiing.

    When comparing medical coverage, evaluate both the coverage and the price. You don t have to buy your travel medical coverage from the same company you are using for your cancellation coverage, so see if that company will give you a deal if you purchase both from them. In terms of medical coverage, find out if you are covered for just emergency room visits or if you are covered for hospital stays. Also, find out what medical issues are covered. If you have a pre-existing condition, verify that medical emergencies associated with that condition are covered.

    Additional Coverage Benefits

    What extras come with the different policies you are evaluating? Do they cover lost luggage? Stolen wallets? Legal issues that arise abroad? Some policies are bare-bones plans while others may have lots of bells and whistles at the same price. Shop around.

    China Travel Service International (REVIEW) – China Forum #travel #finder

    #china travel service

    China Travel Service International (REVIEW)

    First off – BE CAREFUL as there are dozens of agencies called China Travel Service so don t get confused. The company I am reviewing is China Travel Services International based in San Francisco, CA (also in Los Angeles. New York and Beijing ) and their website is (so you don t get confused).

    After searching the Internet and talking to local travel agents, we decided to go with CTSI and worked with Alex Wang in the SF office.

    We read some horror stories about poor quality food, hotels, airlines and high-pressure sales at factory stores so were obviously concerned when we booked, especially given CTSI was quite a bit cheaper then the other online travel agencies.

    Well, we just completed a 21+ day tour from SF to Beijing, Shanghai. Xian, Guilin, Yangshuo, Hangzhou, a cruise on the Yangtze River /Three Gorges. Hong Kong and a custom side trip to Canton.

    Here s are feedback on each of the important criteria:

    Itinerary: The itinerary was perfectly planned, not only allowing us to visit a variety of cities/provinces, but also experiencing the broad spectrum of local cultures throughout China. We experienced the busy cities of Beijing, Shanghai and Hong Kong, but also relaxed in Hangzhou, Yangshuo and of course the cruise on the Yangtze River – none of which we would have enjoyed if not recommended by your company. We originally had concerns with 21 packed days of travel (esp. with young children and seniors with us) but everything down to the daily itinerary (including shows/entertainment) was perfectly orchestrated.

    Food/Accommodations: This is the area we were most concerned with because of reviews on the Internet but was NEVER a problem on our tour. EVERY meal was colorfully prepared in local tradition and served in banquet style, dish after dish! Accommodations were all first class – both clean and functional and centrally located. Even the domestic and international flights were as good if not better than domestic flights in the US.

    Local/National Tour guides: The local and national CTSI tour guides were what really transformed a 21-day tour into a memorable experience of a lifetime. They were ALWAYS there to educate us on the local sights and customs, assist us in every aspect of our stay, and constantly making us laugh. We especially want to thank David (Hangqing) Huang our national guide in Beijing/Xian/Guilin/Shanghai who was more like an ambassador to us than a tour guide and Andy in Guilin who “joined” our family during our stay.

    Price Value: We searched every online and offline travel company specializing in China Travel (many with the similar names) but narrowed down to CTSI/Intertrips. We were a bit concerned that we would be getting less quality than other more expensive tours, but upon our return, now know we just got the best value!

    Caveats: So not to paint our travel as perfect (although darn close) some things to consider. Food was high quality and plentiful (banquet style – dish after dish) but contains more oil and less salt than Chinese food we have in US. As you get closer to Hong Kong, you will find food more similar to that in US. We did take at least one break from Chinese food (25 days!!) and ate at local Mc Donalds which had a more diverse menu than US!

    Shopping is great everywhere but sales people can be aggressive and be prepared to negotiate. Weather was hot and humid, but we survived.

    We found the people very nice and courteous (except at markets and trains) and surprisingly very clean – more so than Chinatowns in the US.

    We considered booking our own itinerary, but the cost was not only more expensive, but the language barrier and lack of experience would have been a big mistake.

    Hope you all enjoy as much we did!

    International Car Insurance #international #car #insurance #usa


    Looking for info on expat insurance?

    International Car Insurance

    If you enjoy driving and value your independence, you’ll want to keep using a car – even when moving to another country, where you may need to get used to different traffic conditions. For expat motorists, car insurance is a big part of staying safe. Read our tips on international policies below!

    Visiting Motorists

    If you are just planning to take your car abroad for a while, e.g. on a preliminary fact-finding trip or extended business travel, your normal insurance policy will often suffice. Contact the insurance provider and ask what their coverage for international travel entails.

    Frequently, international auto insurance policies switch to minimum coverage once you drive abroad. Car insurance for travelers is usually limited to a certain number of days as well. However, by investing a bit more money, most drivers can upgrade their policy for international trips. In other cases, insurance providers at your destination may offer temporary policies for visiting motorists. For example, you can buy short-term car insurance in the UK, but these products require higher premiums than the average quote for local vehicle owners.

    If you cross the border in a motor vehicle, you could be asked at the point of entry to provide proof of insurance. Make sure to find out what the usual basic cover for foreign drivers is and carry your insurance documents with you. Most countries expect both national and international drivers and/or car owners to hold some kind of third-party liability insurance.

    Proof of Insurance and the Green Card System

    Motorists traveling within the EU don’t need proof of car insurance at all. If you register a car in one EU member state and buy the legally required cover, all official policies include basic coverage for other member states by default. Only in case of accident do you have to produce your insurance papers. Though it is no longer mandatory as legal proof within the EU, the so-called Green Card remains the most easily recognized document for international drivers.

    Some other countries still expect foreign drivers to carry such a Green Card as proof of car insurance for border inspections or traffic police. These nations include: Albania, Belarus, Bosnia, Iran, Israel, Macedonia, Moldova, Morocco, Russia, Serbia, Turkey, and Ukraine. If you travel to one of these destinations, ask your local insurance company to issue you a Green Card beforehand.

    Buying Motor Insurance Abroad

    If you actually relocate to another country, things are a little different. If you don’t want to bring along your own vehicle, most company cars or rental vehicles come with an existing insurance policy. However, if you import your own car, an international insurance policy will only be valid for a limited period – e.g. as long as you can keep your foreign license plates, or so long as you are considered a visitor.

    Once you count as a local resident or register your car, you generally need a new quote from a local insurance company. In many countries, third party liability insurance is a legal prerequisite for registering your car with the traffic authorities. For example, in the UK, driving or owning a vehicle without insurance coverage is a criminal offense. Even if the potential consequences are not as drastic as jail time, you should get insurance nonetheless.

    Car Insurance Types

    It’s now time to go auto insurance shopping. Don’t hesitate to contact several companies and compare their quotes and products. Regardless of where you live now, most kinds of car insurance differentiate between two or three policies.

    Third-party coverage pays for all or most damage to other people’s property, as well as treatment of their injuries sustained in an accident you caused. Third party plus extra (e.g. third party plus fire and theft) enables you to file a claim if your car is stolen, or damaged by severe weather conditions and the like. Comprehensive coverage offers – as the name implies – a broad policy that will also reimburse you for having your vehicle repaired if you were responsible for an accident yourself.

    You should always read the fine print and check which provisions a specific quote includes. Will the insurance company pay for a courtesy car? Are your passengers covered too? Do you get money for legal expenses? The list goes on.

    Paying Premiums

    Also find out which factors your premiums depend on. Quotes vary according to…

    • age
    • how many people use the car
    • gender (The EU introduced unisex tariffs in 2012, but other countries might consider young male drivers a risk factor.)
    • deductible (i.e. how much you pay out of your own pocket before filing a claim)
    • where you keep the car over night
    • type of vehicle (e.g. vintage car, sports car)
    • driving experience and insurance record

    The latter can pose a particular problem to expats. Insurance companies aren’t necessarily obliged to take your record from another country into account. But if you haven’t had any accidents back home, it could pay off to contact a potential provider. They may be willing to lower your premiums if you send in an official translation of your old insurance record.

    Last but not least, be aware of when exactly the insurance coverage kicks in and when the premiums are due. In Germany, for example, motorists usually get temporary insurance papers for all travel involved in registering a car (e.g. driving it to the vehicle inspections office). Premiums are paid on an annual basis, but your car insurance company could make an exception and offer quarterly payments, etc.

    Getting Advice

    To compare various quotes for international or local vehicle insurance, contact an independent insurance broker or get in touch with the big national automobile clubs. They often provide their members with special offers for car insurance.

    Automobile associations can also give advice on what to do in case of accident. International drivers should read up on traffic regulations and legal proceedings beforehand. In some places, like the UAE, it’s highly recommended to contact the nearest embassy or consulate immediately when you are involved in an accident. They can provide legal counsel if the police threaten to confiscate your passport or send you to jail until the matter is resolved.

    How to Target International Media #international #media #database


    Target International Media

    How to Use the Three T’s

    With the Three T’s of international distribution Targeting, Timing and Translations you’ll reach audiences around the world more efficiently.


    Business Wire’s news wire circuits let you target news to select audiences based on industry and market needs. In fact, our network is composed of dozens of news agencies, financial information providers, and web-based news services worldwide. Please consult with your local account executive to find the distribution that suits your needs.

    • General Media circuits: Our regional circuits reach the broadest possible spectrum of media outlets in a given region. Major newspapers, radio/TV stations and networks, online outlets, magazines and news wires are all included.
    • Financial Media circuits: Similar to General Media, but with a financial emphasis. Analysts and the financial community are included in each region in addition to general media.
    • Trade Publications: For specialized news that needs to reach an industry audience, Business Wire offers a wide variety of trade media options in virtually every region of the world. And if we don’t currently offer what you need, our international media relations team will build it for you. Trade distribution in any region can be ordered free of charge (except Technology and, in Europe, Health) for relevant release content when ordering a corresponding regional media circuit.
    • Disclosure: Global companies often have global disclosure requirements. Business Wire currently offers disclosure networks in Canada and in many European markets, which include our Transparency Obligations Directive (TOD) network.


    Knowing when to send your news is especially important when sending internationally. Holidays, time zones and the local work schedule of your destination should all be given attention to help optimize pickup of your news. Here are some tips and resources:

    • Most Visible Time: Just as in the US, the optimal time to distribute a news release overseas is in the morning, either at the opening of the local exchange or shortly afterwards (generally 8:00 – 10:00 AM local time). This is when the most people are viewing news, and keeps your news visible for the entire business day.
    • Avoid Weekend Distribution: Business virtually comes to a halt on weekends in many foreign markets. Pickup on your news is likely to be extremely low if released over the weekend.
    • Know Your Time Zones: Time differences play a big part in choosing when to release your news for distribution abroad. Consult time zone websites such as or for help.
    • Holidays: Be aware of holidays in your target markets. There is a holiday virtually every day somewhere in the world; know if the people you’re trying to reach are celebrating rather than working.


    When you send news internationally, there’s a good chance translations will be involved. Media, for the most part, respond positively to news sent in their local languages. However, translations don’t happen instantly. It’s important to give our translators plenty of time the biggest factor when producing quality translations. Most translations can be returned in 24 to 48 hours or less, but many things can slow the process down:

    • Length of Release: A release with a large word count will take proportionally more time to translate.
    • Language Selection: A core group of languages (Spanish, French, German, Italian, etc.) that are used more frequently are generally returned more quickly than other, less frequently used languages. Please remember this if sending your news in less frequently used languages.
    • Language and Jargon: Many companies have unique products and services, and this can often be reflected in the language of their news. A company producing computer chips will use technical language and jargon unfamiliar to the layperson. While most translation companies will have translators who specialize in particular industries, it’s a good idea to provide a glossary of terms unique to your industry. Doing so can only streamline the process.
    • Rush Translations: Rushing a translation is rarely a good idea. Certain quality control steps are inevitably skipped to allow quicker turnaround, compromising the usefulness of the translation.
    • Reviewing: If your company has multilingual speakers on staff or in overseas offices, it’s helpful to have them review and approve translations prior to distribution. This adds a little time to the process, but is the best way to ensure the translated news release is conveying exactly the message you intend.

    In general, the earlier you can submit your release prior to its intended distribution date, the better the process will go.

    GOP Lawmakers Recount Harrowing Moments of Baseball Attack – NBC 10


    GOP Lawmakers Recount Harrowing Moments of Baseball Attack

    U.S. Rep. Joe Barton, R-Texas, said dozens, “if not hundreds” of shots were fired during the shooting, which lasted five to 10 minutes. (Published Wednesday, June 14, 2017)

    The bravery and quick response of U.S. Capitol Police prevented Wednesday’s shooting at a Northern Virginia baseball field from becoming a “massacre,” congressmen at the center of the terrifying ordeal said.

    House Majority Whip Steve Scalise, one Capitol Police officer, an aide to Rep. Roger Williams, R-Texas, and a Tyson Foods lobbyist Matt Mika were shot and wounded Wednesday morning as the Republican congressional baseball team held an early-morning practice in Alexandria, Virginia. Police previously said that five people had been shot, but they have corrected the number to four.

    The gunman, identified by NBC News sources as James T. Hodgkinson, from Illinois, was wounded after trading fire with police. He later died from his injuries, President Donald Trump said.

    Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky. Rep. Mo Brooks, R-Ala. Sen. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz. and Rep. Joe Barton, R-Texas, recounted their harrowing experiences in television interviews Wednesday morning, saying U.S. Capitol Police officers distracted the shooter and ultimately wounded him, saving more people from being shot.

    Rand Paul Discusses Role of Security During Morning Shooting

    Congressman Steve Scalise of Louisiana, along with multiple others, was shot this morning during baseball practice at a park in Alexandra, Virginia.

    The shooting victims were practicing for a Congressional baseball game scheduled for the next night when a lone gunman opened fire on the crowd. Senator Rand Paul was at that practice and says if it weren’t for Capitol Hill Police on the scene, the shooting could have been much worse.

    (Published Wednesday, June 14, 2017)

    “After the first shot, then there was a rapid succession of shots, five or 10 shots,” said Paul, who was in a right field batting cage when the shots first rang out. “In the field, I see Representative Scalise is shot but moving and he’s trying to drag himself through the dirt out into the outfield.”

    At the same time, Brooks said he and others near the infield dove into the first-base dugout to hide from the shots.

    Brooks said he and others in the dugout aided a wounded staffer until officers began firing back at the shooter.

    “I hear loud explosions. I look up and there’s a man with a gun. Fortunately, he’s a good guy,” Brooks said of a Capitol Police officer. “He’s shooting back across the in field at the man with the rifle.”

    Brooks said the return fire distracted the gunman until he was downed by the officers.

    “The only chance we had was the Capitol Police,” Paul said. “Had they not been there, it would’ve been a massacre… There’s no escaping a guy if he’s got several hundred bullets and we’ve got no weapons and no place to hide.”

    Congressman Describes Va. Attack: ‘The Gunfire Was Non-Stop’

    Rep. Mo Brooks, R-Ala. describes the moment a gunman opened fired as the Republican congressional baseball team held an early-morning practice in Alexandria, Virginia.

    (Published Wednesday, June 14, 2017)

    Sen. Flake described calling Scalise’s wife after Scalise was taken by the ambulance. “I didn’t want her to hear it on the news,” he told NBC News.

    “[Scalise] dragged himself after being shot to off the infield and into the outfield to get a little further away from the gunman,” he continued.

    Choking up as he spoke, Barton recounted a similar scene. “Scalise’s security detail and Capitol Hill police immediately began to return fire and Alexandria police also immediately came and began to return fire,” he said.

    Barton, the team manager, said he took cover behind a dugout when the shooting started. His 10-year-old son was also on the field and dropped to the ground. “I was getting down, making sure my son was down,” Barton said.

    Just prior to the shooting, at about 7 a.m. two congressmen who left practice early said they bumped into the man they now believe was the shooter, and he asked them whether the people practicing were Democrats or Republicans.

    Rep. Jeff Duncan, R-SC, and Rep. Ron Desantis, R-Fla. were getting into Duncan’s car when the man asked them for the political affiliation of those on the field.

    Medevac Lands After Shooting at GOP Baseball Practice

    A medevac landed in Alexandria, Virginia, after reports of shots fired at a baseball field where congressional Republicans were practicing. House Majority Whip Steve Scalise was reportedly shot.

    (Published Wednesday, June 14, 2017)

    “I told him they were Republicans,” Duncan said. “He said, ‘OK, thanks’ and turned around. I got in the car and left, and found out later that my Republican colleagues were targeted by an active shooter.”

    The two Capitol Police officers were wounded in the shooting, authorities said. Both are expected to survive.

    Brooks said even after one of the officers was wounded, he limped toward the outfield in an attempt to help Scalise.

    “He’s loyal to the person he’s assigned to protect,” Brooks said of the officer. “So even though he’s wounded. he’s trying to make sure Steve Scalise is going to be ok.”

    Hi Janice, Our trip was a thoroughly enjoyable family adventure! Thank you so much for the unique opportunities that you created for our daughter at each college. Meeting with a student at Harvard, was probably the most informative way to start the entire trip. She devoted a lot of time (in the rain) providing real college life details. She swiped us into dining halls, dorms & buildings that we might not have seen otherwise. The sophomore session at Princeton was wonderful! Thank you so much for everything that you did! We really were able to get the most out of each campus visit! Best, Julie

    Julie, Parent of a high school Junior in Southern California

    I found working with Custom College Visits a very positive experience. They were able to pinpoint colleges that were best suited for my daughter and the travel plans were well organized. In addition, they were able to set up an interview with a member of a college color guard, as my daughter had expressed interest in going to a school that had a color guard. I am very pleased with my experience with Custom College Visits, and would recommend them highly.

    Mark L. Parent of high school junior in Northern California

    Lili got accepted into her first choice school today (early decision): Boston University! She is thrilled beyond belief and relieved as well. We could not have done it without your help, it was invaluable. I think the High School Honors program she did there was probably very helpful and we would not have know about it without your forwarding the information to us. You rock! So, I am tipping my hat today to both you and Lili!

    Kim T. Parent of high school senior in Kansas

    I am happy to tell you that Nivi has been accepted early decision to Brown University. She is the first ivy leaguer in our family and we couldn’t be more proud! Her decision to apply was made easier because of the excellent experience she had during her customized tour via your company so thank you so much! We will be sure to recommend you to our friends here..

    Gayathri S. Parent of high school senior Chennai, India

    Thank you again for being so good at what you do. Our trip to the US was a huge success. I was on the verge of cancelling the trip but knew I couldn’t let my son down. That I even found you on the internet was a direct answer to my prayer for a miracle. The itinerary worked very well. I knew I was in good hands even before I boarded the plane to the U.S. and your attention to detail far exceeded my expectation.

    Egbe O. Parent of international high school student

    We had a wonderful trip to Philadelphia and Boston thanks to Janice Caine of Custom College Visits. She worked out an itinerary from start to finish. We visited 9 schools and it was as smooth as possible. Janice worked out tours and information sessions as well as meetings with tennis coaches.We have boy/girl twins and both were happy which is not an easy achievement. Not only did Janice work out the schedule but she recommended great schools in both towns. We would highly recommend her.

    Phil S. Parent of high school students SF Bay Area

    “Thank you SO MUCH for your involvement in the Splash Parents’ Program this weekend! I am just reviewing the feedback forms, and your presentation received rave reviews across the board; many parents cited it as the highlight of the program for them! Some verbatim quotes include: ‘The Planning and Preparing for College Visits was a great eye opener;’ Thank you for all the effort, energy, and enthusiasm you put into making the event such a success.”

    Marisa M. Coordinator, Splash Parents’ Program Stanford University

    Our college process was two-fold. It began with getting a jump start on the standardized testing, and not waiting until spring of junior year to focus. I believe our outcome was successful because we had a well-managed plan helped along by an expert, Janice Caine, of Custom College Visits.

    Lisa L. Parent of high school students SF Bay Area

    Happy New Year! Wanted to let you know that Charlie was accepted to Johns Hopkins Early Decision! Great news and very exciting all around. Thank you for all your help.

    Beth A. Parent of a high school senior. Massachusetts

    Using Anti Snoring Mouthpiece

    The good news is that for most people, snoring is caused by a blocked passageway. Instead of a smooth breathing process, the air has trouble getting in and out of the throat, therefore causing the sound. Blockage can happen because the tongue is in the way or the throat muscles are weak and preventing proper airflow.

    If the problem is due to these two reasons, the use of an anti snoring mouthpiece is the best possible solution. The mouthpiece is worn during sleeping and positions the problematic body part properly so that it doesn’t block the air from passing in and out of the mouth.

    Today, there are two types of mouthpieces used for snoring.

    * Tongue Retaining – tongue retaining mouthpieces are small and placed only at the tip of the tongue. This pulls the tongue slightly forward, therefore preventing it from flopping around in the mouth, causing snoring. Comfortable and easy to use, tongue retaining mouthpieces are best used if you snore with your mouth closed. The Good Morning Snore Solution seems to the most popular tongue retaining device on the market.

    * Jaw Retaining – jaw retaining mouthpieces move the jaw slightly forward, tensing the throat muscles and preventing them from vibrating during sleeping. This type of mouthpiece is best used by individuals who snore with their mouth open, indicating that the problem is with their throat. Note that jaw retaining types can be uncomfortable at first and needs to be fitted in.

    Why Opt for Mouthpieces?

    The use of an anti snoring mouthpiece is best for backpackers because: (1) they are small and easy to bring with you, (2) they don’t need constant replacement, and (3) they can be easily cleaned.

    Of course, there are also other options today, but most of them aren’t ideal for the traveler lifestyle. Make sure to check with your doctor first before opting for the mouthpiece to make sure that this is the right solution for you.

    Top 10 Cheap International Travel Destinations in the World #best #places

    Top 10 Cheap International Travel Destinations in the World

    By Hope Nardini

    I love to travel, but as a college student, jet-setting doesn t always fit my bank account. Weekend getaways. staycations. and last-minute discounts help me make the most of my travel budget, but what about budget travel to more exotic destinations?

    I ve found that visiting places with favorable exchange rates has worked out well for international destinations especially when I can also find the best airline ticket deals to get there. Some of the main factors I consider when evaluating a potential destination are: cost of living, visa fees, airfare, activities, culture, and safety. Using this strategy, I ve been able to travel to five South American countries in the past two years on a relatively tight budget.

    With all of this background in mind, here is my list of the top ten budget travel destinations, with the underlying theme being very favorable exchange rates and extremely low costs of living.

    Best Cheap Travel Destinations Around the World

    1. Uganda

    Kampala is one of the cheapest cities in the world, and Uganda, known as The Pearl of Africa, hosts Lake Victoria, which is the second largest lake in the world. The official language is Swahili, but English is widely spoken, especially among the staff at hotels and tour companies.

    Kampala is at the top of my travel bucket list because it s a hub for adventure activities such as whitewater rafting on the Nile River and bungee jumping. The city of Jinja also offers quad biking and river boarding (boogie boarding down the river).

    2. Jamaica

    Jamaica has plenty of luxury options, but thanks to the island s new international airport, deals on 3,000 new hotel rooms, and clean beaches, Budget Travel has rated Jamaica one of the top budget travel destinations for 2011 .

    International airfare has been pretty affordable lately. I checked and round-trip flights from the eastern U.S. are under $400, which is cheap enough for me to justify a visit to an affordable hotel for a long weekend. Homemade Jamaican jerk chicken is a great plus too!

    The only reason Jamaica isn t number one on this list is because I avoid hurricane season (July and August), but I d rather visit during the winter when I m craving some sunshine anyway.

    3. Bangladesh

    Bangladesh was rated Lonely Planet s number one value destination in 2011. According to Lonely Planet, you can buy meals for under a dollar and enjoy river cruises for rates lower than what you d spend in nearby India. Bangladesh may be a non-traditional travel destination, but don t overlook it.

    With the exchange rate, I ll be able to stretch my travel budget enough to sail by the Irrawaddy River Dolphins and see tigers in the Sunderbans National Park outside of Khulna. Bangladesh also has a wide range of handmade crafts such as coconut masks, bamboo sculptures, and folk dolls. Leatherwork and pearls are also popular exports.

    The U.S. State Department warns that tourist visas granted upon arrival are usually only valid for 15 days, so you shouldn t expect to have an extended stay without a fine or special permission.

    4. Hungary

    I m not sure exactly when Hungary came onto my travel radar. Budapest has gotten a lot of publicity lately for its beauty as a UNESCO World Heritage site. Fortunately, Hungary is also an affordable travel destination. You can get huge meals in markets for $5, public transportation via train for $1, and hotels for $20 a night.

    The city seems like a curious mixture of 14th century architecture and modernization. Highlights include the gorgeous architecture of the Fisherman s Bastion, the Buda Royal Palace, and the tranquil Margaret Island.

    5. Ecuador

    I spent an entire summer in Quito, and there s still so much I haven t seen. With just $3 for lunch, I bought soup, rice, chicken, juice, and Jell-O. A bus across the city cost 50 cents, and because Ecuador uses the U.S. dollar, I didn t even have to worry about losing money in the exchange. I wish I had time to explore beach towns like Montanita and cloud forests like Mindo.

    The beauty of Ecuador is that it has a rich natural ecosystem, from the Andes Mountains running through the country to the amazing coastal rain forest, yet you re also near incredible major cities like Quito and Guayaquil.

    6. Thailand

    I ve heard that the street food in Thailand is world-class. Blogger Richard Barrow tried a Thai Food Challenge and ate street food in Thailand for every meal for an entire month. His spending averaged less than $4 a day on food. At the end of the challenge, he had tried one hundred different meals. How can you beat the price, variety, and deliciousness?

    It s no surprise, then, that Thai cooking classes are so popular, but there are plenty of things to do for budget travelers as well: relax on the beaches, explore elegant Buddhist temples, shop at the Damnoen Saduak Floating Market, and check out the busy colorful city of Bangkok.

    7. Peru

    Don t be misled by the prices at Machu Picchu; Peru is really a very affordable travel destination. I lived in the Ancash region, just north of Lima, for almost four months last fall. A typical three-course lunch was as low as $2 in the town of Huaraz. Hostels throughout the country are budget-friendly as well. A typical bed in a dorm room cost $8 to $10, which usually included a simple breakfast of juice, bread, and fruit.

    I also found public transportation to be affordable, although airfare within the country is expensive. For example, a bus from Cusco to Lima cost me $37, while the cheapest round trip plane ticket I found was $160.

    8. Dominican Republic

    The Dominican Republic is an attractive budget travel destination for baseball fans and suntanners alike. Santo Domingo, the capital city, was named a UNESCO World Heritage site because there are still colonial elements from Christopher Columbus s arrival in 1492. The island comes alive during Carnaval Dominicano in February and Semana Santa in April.

    The Dominican Republic is home to a wide range of lodging options to fit any budget, from luxury resorts to affordable hostels. Although it s not the cheapest country in the region, there is a good mix of sun, safety, and affordability.

    9. Croatia

    AskMen named Croatia one of its Top Ten Cheap Vacations. and they say hostels go for about $10 per night. I visited the city of Dubrovnik a few years ago, and I remember being able to see my toes while swimming in the crystal-clear water. I also remember seeing the bright orange roofs on buildings showing which of them were bombed in the Yugoslavian War from 1991 to 1995.

    While food and lodging were both relatively cheap in the Pearl of the Adriatic, I did have a problem finding shop owners and waiters who spoke English. I should have bought a Croatian phrase book.

    10. Argentina

    I took part in a college study abroad program in Buenos Aires. so Argentina holds a special place in my heart. The cost of living is cheaper than in similar cities in the United States, but inflation is an issue with prices rising for the past few years. For example, I noticed that groceries were cheaper when I was there in December 2009 than when I visited exactly one year later. A bottle of Coke cost 3.50 pesos then and rose to 6 pesos in 2010. However, public transportation remains affordable as does lodging.

    There are other equally exciting cities that are cheaper than Buenos Aires like Cordoba, Salta, and Jujuy.

    Final Word

    I m grateful that I can still fit international travel in my budget. When I save up for a trip, I plan my itinerary accordingly. Choosing destinations with a lower cost of living allows me to explore new destinations for a longer period of time.

    These are just the top 10 places on my list. How about you? Have you been to any of these countries? Are there any affordable places on your travel bucket list?

    Travel Tips for International Flights

    International flights can affect your immune system. (Photo: airplane image by Clarence Alford from )

    Related Articles

    International flights are often long affairs and generally involve one or two layovers. During these long flights, which can reach over 16 hours when traveling from North America to China or Australia, it is important to take care of your health and safety. With preparation, you can arrive at your international destination healthy, well-rested and ready to take on a new country.

    Protect Your Health

    In the days before an international trip, it can be tempting to stay up late taking care of last-minute packing and other travel details. Losing sleep can weaken your immune system, which means that you will be more susceptible to the germs of other passengers on your flight. If possible, stick to your normal sleep schedule to stay healthy. To protect your immune system further, Reader s Digest recommends, that you use doses of echinacea or vitamin C.

    Prepare for Jet Lag on Night Flights

    Many international flights involve flying overnight and changing one or more time zones, which can confuse your body and cause trouble with sleep schedules. To prepare your body for a change in time, arrive to your international flight ready to sleep. Bring a sleeping mask, socks and earplugs. Consider taking a mild sedative or an over-the-counter sleep aid, which will help you get to sleep in an unfamiliar environment. Even a few hours of sleep will help you stay awake upon reaching your destination and will enable you to adjust your schedule to the new time zone.

    Bring Comfortable Clothing

    What International Air Travel Was Like in the 1930s

    Today we largely take international air travel for granted. Every major city in the world is little more than a hop, skip, and jump away. But what was it actually like to fly halfway around the world in the 1930s, when the very concept was still novel? Pretty incredible, as it turns out—provided you could afford it.

    At the dawn of commercial air travel, Imperial Airways was Britain’s shuttle to the world. As the British Empire’s lone international airline in the 1920s and ’30s, Imperial was responsible for showing the rich and famous every corner of the Empire. And in doing so, their mission was to make the Empire (and by extension, the world) feel that much smaller.


    They did it in style.

    Rough Take-off

    After the war, Britain had a surplus of warplanes that would jumpstart its commercial air industry. But the early 1920s was a hard period for British aircraft companies. Unlike their counterparts in France, Belgium, the Netherlands, and the United States, very little government investment in British air travel occurred during peacetime.
