You are a goddess! Everything went really well. Larry (our tour director) was working his little butt off and did a phenomenal job! Thank you so much for working with us and especially at the end right before the trip when we had students move in and out of the trip. You made dreams come true for kids that wouldn t have had that happen with other companies. I owe you big time. Thank you again for everything. We really couldn t have done it without you.

John Stangel – Director of Bands, Kaukauna High School

It was a wonderful tour! Our guides were absolutely fantastic, and I was very pleased with the things we were able to sample from these cities. Great meals and dining locations, and the first two performance venues especially were absolutely unforgettable experiences the students had a very memorable experience, and there are lots of great feelings swirling around the HHS orchestra room in the final few weeks of the school year!

Allegiant Air plans more nonstop flights for Pittsburgh #cheap #air #travel

#airline tickets

Allegiant Air is making Pittsburgh a base of operations

By Mark Belko / Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

It won t arrive in time for Mardi Gras but Allegiant Air is giving Pittsburgh-area travelers reason to celebrate: A new nonstop flight to New Orleans.

Allegiant will start twice-weekly service to the Crescent City from Pittsburgh International Airport on Feb. 19. The airline, which is expanding rapidly in Pittsburgh, also is adding a new seasonal flight to Palm Beach, Fla. and expanding its seasonal service to Myrtle Beach.

Since touching down in Pittsburgh last February with flights to three Florida cities, the Las Vegas-based airline has added four others, counting the two new ones to be formally announced today.

It also will make Pittsburgh a base of operations next month, a distinction that will bring with it up to 40 jobs and a permanently-based 156-seat Airbus 319 aircraft.

With the new flights, Allegiant will become the airport s fourth largest carrier in terms of destinations behind Southwest, American and Delta.

Pittsburgh travelers have been pretty enthusiastic about us. We really saw an opening for ultra low-cost service, which Pittsburgh hasn t previously had. The response that we ve seen has been overwhelmingly positive, Allegiant spokesman Justin Ralenkotter said.

Pittsburgh has been without a nonstop flight to New Orleans for 10 years. For at least the last two years, the airport has been offering incentives such as landing fee waivers and increased marketing support to carriers willing to commit to nonstop flights to desired destinations.

In conjunction with that, Allegiant will not have to pay gate or landing fees for the New Orleans and Palm Beach flights for a year.

The twice-weekly New Orleans service will fly into Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport. Fares will start as low as $39 one way.

Seasonal twice-weekly service to Palm Beach International Airport also will begin Feb. 19 with fares as low as $39 and operate through May 16. Allegiant will be competing on that route with Southwest Airlines, which will be offering a Saturday-only nonstop to the same airport from March 12 through April 9.

We re really not competing for the same passengers as other carriers. We see ourselves as complementing or adding more choice to travel, Mr. Ralenkotter said.

Allegiant will be starting its seasonal twice weekly service to Myrtle Beach April 7 next year, two months earlier than this year.

Mr. Ralenkotter said the route has performed exceptionally well for us. The airline aims for planes that are at least 90 percent full, and the Myrtle Beach flight has exceeded those expectations, he noted.

He added there is no hard or fast rule how quickly the airline expands in a city. Cincinnati, which like Pittsburgh has lost an airline hub, currently has Allegiant flights to 11 cities. Indianapolis has flights to seven destinations.

Pittsburgh has done very well for us. We ve been very pleased with the results that we ve seen from the market there and how people have taken to our service in booking those flights, he said.

When to Buy Airline Tickets and More Travel Advice #travel #australia

When to Buy Airline Tickets and More Travel Advice

Want to find cheapest available flights every time you shop? FareCompare CEO Rick Seaney shares his favorite money-saving tips.

LISTEN :   Rick Seaney s podcast of best tips.

5 Ways to Save on Airfare

Let s start off  with basic advice for all travelers: Always  compare airfare prices. No single airline always has the best deal. If you don t compare, you could pay too much. More good tips:

#1: Shop for domestic deals on Tuesdays

According to FareCompare s database of current and historical airfares (one of the world s largest), airfare pricing trends show the best day to shop for U.S. domestic tickets is Tuesday and the best time on Tuesday is about 3 p.m. eastern. Here s why:

Airlines typically kick off airfare sales late Monday or early Tuesday.

  • Other airlines lower prices to stay competitive
  • Price matching is usually complete by early Tuesday afternoon
  • Newly discounted airfares hit reservation systems by 3pm eastern

However, deals can and do pop up at other times and this is especially true for deals sought by international travelers which bring us to our second tip.

#2: Sign up for real-time airfare alerts

Sign up for airfare alerts and you ll receive notifications of airfare price drops in real-time. This is important because sale seats are limited and the quicker you learn of a deal, the better your chance of getting it.

#3: Don t buy airline tickets too early

Airlines don t begin actively managing U.S. domestic fares until about three and a half months before departure; if you buy earlier, you will likely pay a mid-range price which won t be the best deal. For international flights, there is a longer window. Our guidelines:

  • U.S. flights: Start shopping no earlier than about 3 and a half months before departure.
  • International: Start shopping no earlier than about five months before departure.

#4: Don t buy airline tickets too late

When it comes to most U.S. legacy carriers (American, Delta, United),  airfare prices can rise dramatically inside 14-days before departure; with discount or low cost airlines, that window is usually 7 to 10 days before departure. This is when last-minute business travelers typically shop and as a result, they pay more. No reason for vacation travelers to do likewise.

  • U.S. domestic flights: Purchase tickets a month before departure.
  • International travel: Purchase tickets a month and a half before departure.

#5: Fly the cheapest days

Most people want to squeeze as much time out of a vacation as possible which is why flights on Fridays and Sunday are so popular. However, the airlines know this and they usually charge more for such flights.

  • Cheapest days to fly, U.S. domestic flights: Usually Tuesday, Wednesday or Saturday.
  • Cheapest days to fly, international flights: Midweek dates are often cheaper than weekends.

Now that you ve found cheaper airfare, what will you spend that extra vacation money on?

In the meantime, many hotels have already announced deals, some of which promise to be the biggest Cyber Monday bargains the brands have ever offered. (Note: The promotions are often for particular rooms, subject to availability, and may have blackout dates.) Rail Europe, a major purveyor of European train tickets in North America, has also revealed its deals. Below, a peek at some of what’s to come.

Travel Nurse Jobs

Find Your Perfect Traveling

Nurse Position

Travel nurse jobs are everywhere. The nursing shortage that the U.S. is in has made that possible and there is no end in sight. How do you find good nursing jobs?

Well, it is easy, if you take your time and do your research. There are hundreds of travel nurse companies out there, but, they are not all created equal.

There are many different requirements you should expect from your agency when you are looking to become a travel nurse.

  • What is your specialty and does the agency have contracts with hospitals that you can and want to work at?
  • What benefits are important to you? Can the agency fulfill your needs?
  • What is their pay? Is it comparable to other travel agencies?
  • Speak to a recruiter. Do they have answers to your questions? Do you get along well with them? They will be your contact for everything.
  • Does the recruiter listen to what you want instead of trying to steer you into what they have available?
  • Is the company able to help you advance in your career? Do they offer nursing continuing education?
  • Do they offer a 401K/retirement account?

Be sure to sign up for our free 5 day e-course that will give you all of the information you must have before signing up with the travel nurse agencies.

Where would you like your travel nursing career to take you?

Anything else that is important to you, speak with your recruiter. They will help you to achieve everything you need. They are there to assist their travel nurses and should be able to help guide you in all of your decisions.

Usually the packages that are being offered can be changed. For instance, if you need a 2 bedroom apartment, you can choose to not have one of the other benefits or pay a small monthly stipend. All is negotiable.

Travel nurse jobs are as varied as travel nurses. They are available in major cities and rural areas. Once you are able to determine your needs, let your recruiter know and they will set it up for you.

Safety First When Traveling for Enjoyment

You can find a lot of safety tips online and in offline resources. Traveling is among the most common activities of people, whether it is for pleasure or for business. Frequent travelers are no longer ignorant to these safety tips because they make use of them whenever they are on a foreign place. If you want to make the most of your trip, safety first when traveling is of utmost importance.

Here are some of the things that you can do to ensure your safety:

1. When traveling, it’s but natural for you to carry luggage. If you need to place luggage tags, just put your email address and never indicate there your name, phone number, and home address.

2. Air traveling is already part when going abroad or to a far place. You can see in the news that there are terrorists who sometimes highjack planes. One effective shield that you can use against an attacker (if there is trouble on the plane) is the seat straps. You have to use all your strength in ramming the strap on the attacker’s face. This move will cut off the attacker’s vision and once this happens, you can kick that individual in the groin or in any other sensitive body part. Knock that person until unconscious.

3. Don’t forget to bring a handy flashlight and batteries. You can use it if there is no light or you can even use it against an attacker when needed.

4. Don’t forget to carry wallets. If you want, you can take two wallets with you. One wallet can contain some non-important items and a few cash while the other wallet should contain your important IDs, insurance cards, cash, and emergency contacts. Keep the wallets in separate places. For instance, the insignificant wallet can be placed in your pant’s back pocket and the important wallet should be in your coat’s front pocket.

5. When eating in foreign restaurants, you must acquaint yourself with the place’s layout. Take note of the front and exit doors.

6. Charge your mobile phone at the hotel. When you leave, bring it with you and other gadgets that can be easily carried. You can even use these gadgets in case of emergencies.

7. Never travel alone. Through there are some travelers who do this every time they travel, you shouldn’t take the chance. Who knows, perhaps they are just lucky but you’ll never know what’s going to happen in the next few hours. Always be prepared. Remember that devious individuals are just waiting to see a helpless traveler, alone and so vulnerable.

8. You must be mentally alert at all times. Observe the people around you, how they move or look at you. Somehow, you will feel uneasy if something’s going to happen.

9. Before you travel to a foreign place, it would be best to make a hotel reservation. That way, you don’t have to fumble or ask for directions in trying to locate a certain hotel.

10. Don’t travel with so many luggage unless when needed. Try to wear comfortable clothes and don’t wear something that might attract the attention of bad people. Be simple as you are. For women, avoid wearing high-heeled shoes when traveling.

These are just ten safety measures that you can follow every time you travel abroad or even locally. If you follow them, you can ensure your safety.

The Pros and Cons of Vacation Packages

One of reasons why I travel is because I find some great vacation packages available online. Are you interested in taking a trip or a vacation soon? If you are, will you need to book reservations on an airplane? If you will, you will find that you have a number of different booking options. One of those options, which typically comes highly rated and recommended, involves making your travel arrangements in the form of a vacation package.

Although vacation packages do come highly rated and recommend, for the most part, many travelers are still unsure about buying them. This is most often the case with first time travelers. Many are unsure if vacation packages are really in their best interest. When trying to determine if booking your next travel arrangements in the form of a vacation package is a good idea, you will want to examine the pros and cons of doing so.

As for the pros or plus sides to booking your travel arrangements in the form of a vacation package, you will find that there are a lot of them. One of those plus sides is that vacation packages are easy to find, especially online. Vacation packages are most commonly offered for sale through online travel websites. These online travel websites can be found with a standard internet search. Online travel websites are websites that allow you to compare airfare, hotel accommodations, and car rental reservations. Using online travel websites, to book a vacation or even just airline reservations, has a whole set of benefits on its own.

Another pro or plus side to booking your next travel plans in the form of a vacation package is the money that you may be able to save. While there are no guarantees, consumers are typically rewarded for making all of their travel arrangements at once. This is neat, as many travelers already feel rewarded because of the time they are able to save by booking all of their travel arrangements at once. As for saved money, the discount that you will receive will all depend on the vacation package that you are purchasing, as well as who you are making that purchase from. Whether you receive a $5 discount or a $50 discount, you may be pleased with the savings.

Another one of the many reasons why vacation packages come highly rated and recommend is because they come in a number of different formats. No matter what your travel needs are, you should be able to find a vacation package that can accommodate to you and your needs. For example, do you need to book a flight, make reservations at a hotel, and reserve a car rental? If so, you can do so. On the other hand, if you only need to book a flight and rent a car, you can still find vacation packages that allow you to do so. While most major online travel websites will only include motel, hotels, and vacation resorts in vacation packages, there are specialty travel websites out there that focus on other lodging options, including vacation homes.

Although there are a number of pros or plus sides to booking your travel arrangements as a vacation package, it is also important to note that there are a number of downsides to doing so as well. Two of those downsides are the restrictions that you may be faced with, as well as the fact that you are not guaranteed to receive any discounts, although most will offer them. As for the restrictions that you may be faced with, not all cities and towns in the United States have accommodations that are needed for vacation packages, like a car rental company or a hotel. With that said, most can be found nearby.

As you can see, there are both a number of pros and cons to making your travel arrangements in the form of a vacation package. What you are encouraged to do is take these above mentioned pros and cons and apply them to your own personal wants and needs.

Allegiant Air plans more nonstop flights for Pittsburgh #cruise #travel #agents

#airline tickets

Allegiant Air is making Pittsburgh a base of operations

By Mark Belko / Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

It won t arrive in time for Mardi Gras but Allegiant Air is giving Pittsburgh-area travelers reason to celebrate: A new nonstop flight to New Orleans.

Allegiant will start twice-weekly service to the Crescent City from Pittsburgh International Airport on Feb. 19. The airline, which is expanding rapidly in Pittsburgh, also is adding a new seasonal flight to Palm Beach, Fla. and expanding its seasonal service to Myrtle Beach.

Since touching down in Pittsburgh last February with flights to three Florida cities, the Las Vegas-based airline has added four others, counting the two new ones to be formally announced today.

It also will make Pittsburgh a base of operations next month, a distinction that will bring with it up to 40 jobs and a permanently-based 156-seat Airbus 319 aircraft.

With the new flights, Allegiant will become the airport s fourth largest carrier in terms of destinations behind Southwest, American and Delta.

Pittsburgh travelers have been pretty enthusiastic about us. We really saw an opening for ultra low-cost service, which Pittsburgh hasn t previously had. The response that we ve seen has been overwhelmingly positive, Allegiant spokesman Justin Ralenkotter said.

Pittsburgh has been without a nonstop flight to New Orleans for 10 years. For at least the last two years, the airport has been offering incentives such as landing fee waivers and increased marketing support to carriers willing to commit to nonstop flights to desired destinations.

In conjunction with that, Allegiant will not have to pay gate or landing fees for the New Orleans and Palm Beach flights for a year.

The twice-weekly New Orleans service will fly into Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport. Fares will start as low as $39 one way.

Seasonal twice-weekly service to Palm Beach International Airport also will begin Feb. 19 with fares as low as $39 and operate through May 16. Allegiant will be competing on that route with Southwest Airlines, which will be offering a Saturday-only nonstop to the same airport from March 12 through April 9.

We re really not competing for the same passengers as other carriers. We see ourselves as complementing or adding more choice to travel, Mr. Ralenkotter said.

Allegiant will be starting its seasonal twice weekly service to Myrtle Beach April 7 next year, two months earlier than this year.

Mr. Ralenkotter said the route has performed exceptionally well for us. The airline aims for planes that are at least 90 percent full, and the Myrtle Beach flight has exceeded those expectations, he noted.

He added there is no hard or fast rule how quickly the airline expands in a city. Cincinnati, which like Pittsburgh has lost an airline hub, currently has Allegiant flights to 11 cities. Indianapolis has flights to seven destinations.

Pittsburgh has done very well for us. We ve been very pleased with the results that we ve seen from the market there and how people have taken to our service in booking those flights, he said.

    Finding cheap flights and more on Black Friday

    9:10 a.m. Nov. 19 New York Times News Service

    As every American knows, after the turkey comes the shopping. And not just for clothes and toys. In the days following Thanksgiving (Black Friday and especially Cyber Monday), scores of travel companies offer discounted hotel rooms, vacation packages, rail passes, rental cars, cruises and flights.

    Also check out booking sites such as Expedia, and visit the websites and social media feeds of your favorite travel brands on Thanksgiving weekend to ensure you don’t miss their sales.

    In the meantime, many hotels have already announced deals, some of which promise to be the biggest Cyber Monday bargains the brands have ever offered. (Note: The promotions are often for particular rooms, subject to availability, and may have blackout dates.) Rail Europe, a major purveyor of European train tickets in North America, has also revealed its deals. Below, a peek at some of what’s to come.

    Morgans Hotel Group said that on Nov. 30 it will offer rooms up to 41 percent off (its lowest rates of the year) for stays on specific dates. In New York, hotels include the Royalton, Morgans Hotel and Hudson New York (valid for stays Dec. 20-25 and January and February 2016); London hotels include the Sanderson, Mondrian London and St. Martins Lane (for stays Dec. 20-29 and Jan. 2-10); California hotels include the Mondrian Los Angeles (for stays Dec. 1-30) and Clift in San Francisco (for stays Nov. 29-30 and Dec. 1-11, 18-25, and 27-30); in Miami hotels include the Delano, Mondrian South Beach and Shore Club (for stays May 1-Sept. 30); and in Istanbul, the Karakoy (for stays on Sundays through March 2016). Information (the site is scheduled to go live on Nov. 30): Morganscyber.com .

    Kimpton hotels in Florida — including EPIC Miami; Surfcomber in South Beach; the Angler’s in South Beach; Tideline Ocean Resort and Spa in Palm Beach, and Vero Beach Hotel and Spa in Vero Beach — are discounting rooms up to 15 percent Nov. 30-Dec. 1, for stays through Feb. 29. Information: Kimptonhotels.com .

    A number of upscale hotels and resorts plan to slash the price of rooms in half if you book on certain days and, in some cases, within a particular hour.

    In Turks and Caicos, the Seven Stars Resort, a luxury hotel on Providenciales, is offering 50 percent off all room categories booked from Nov. 27-30 for stays between April 16-Aug. 12. Information: Sevenstarsgracebay.com .

    At the Charles Hotel in Cambridge, Massachusetts, rooms booked on Nov. 30 from 11 a.m. to noon will be 50 percent off; rooms will be 20 percent off the rest of the day. The offer is good for stays Dec. 11-March 31. Information: Charleshotel.com .

    On the beach in Long Island, New York, at Gurney’s Montauk Resort & Seawater Spa, private oceanfront cottages will be 50 percent off on Nov. 30 between 1-2 p.m.; all other rooms will be 30 percent off that day. The offer is good for stays from Dec. 2-April 30. Information: GurneysMontauk.com .

    The Rancho Bernardo Inn in San Diego is offering 50 percent off rooms booked on Nov. 27 and 30 for stays through Jan. 7. Information: RanchoBernardoInn.com .

    For those in the market for a beach getaway, Half Moon, a RockResort in Jamaica in Montego Bay, is offering up to 30 percent off rooms for those who book between Nov. 27-Dec. 1. Information: Halfmoon.rockresorts.com .

    Also in the Caribbean, the beachfront Hyatt Regency Aruba Resort, Spa and Casino will give those who book on Nov. 30 a deal on stays of five nights or more from April 1-Dec. 19, 2016.

    Top 10 destinations

    What not to miss

    Explore Bangkok’s temples by day and nightlife when the sun drops. Go hilltribe trekking in the mountainous north. Bask on one of the many islands in the south. Introduce your tastebuds to chilli and your limbs to Thai massage.

    When to visit

    The most popular time to go is between November and February. There is little rain and it isn’t too hot. The southern islands are affected by different monsoon cycles, so be sure to check the weather before picking a coast. The hottest period is April to May.

    Trivia

    Around 12% of Thais have Chinese heritage, but the Sino-Thai community is the best integrated in the region.

    Jump to a destination

    People say Thailand simply offers it all to travellers in a neat, great-value package — whether you’re an independent budget backpacker wanting to explore off the beaten track, or a well-heeled tourist looking for an exclusive slice of paradise.

    Rough it while trekking through mist-shrouded mountains; be astounded by teeming aquatic life as you plunge into turquoise waters; or savour a romantic pool villa for a perfect luxury honeymoon — you can do it all in the Land of Smiles.

    Thailand has been on the international backpacker beat for decades now, and while backpackers are making the most of ever-increasing budget flights to Thailand, these days luxury travellers bolster the numbers too.

    From the food and spas, to the temples and culture, Thailand is a land steeped in fascinating Buddhist history, catapulted into the present through fast-paced economic growth that kicked off in the 1960s.

    It’s true that more than 20 million tourists arrive here annually now, following the well-worn path of those before them. But there’s a reason the crowds keep on coming.

    The capital Bangkok offers glittering temples on the majestic Chao Phraya River, with shopping for both bargains and top-range designer items luring the masses as well.

    It also plays home to the backpacking mecca of Khao San Road — the epicentre of Southeast Asia’s backpacking universe.

    Get to know an elephant or hike to see ethnic minorities in cool, mountainous Chiang Mai. then take a flight down south to sip cocktails and sunbathe on the palm-fringed southern islands of Phuket or Ko Samui.

    Alternatively, let loose at a pulsing Full Moon Party on Ko Pha Ngan. or enjoy a spot of world-class diving off Ko Tao. History buffs will revel in Thailand’s ancient capitals of Ayutthaya and Sukhothai. and enjoy exploring somewhat more obscure Khmer ruins dotted around the kingdom’s north and northeast.

    Popular side trips from Bangkok include Ko Samet. just a few hours away by road and boat, while Kanchanaburi is home to the famed Bridge Over the River Kwai, popular waterfalls and the controversial Tiger Temple. Families are heading to quiet Ko Lanta in greater numbers too, while Krabi remains a favourite for island hoppers.

    Safety First When Traveling for Enjoyment

    You can find a lot of safety tips online and in offline resources. Traveling is among the most common activities of people, whether it is for pleasure or for business. Frequent travelers are no longer ignorant to these safety tips because they make use of them whenever they are on a foreign place. If you want to make the most of your trip, safety first when traveling is of utmost importance.

    Here are some of the things that you can do to ensure your safety:

    1. When traveling, it’s but natural for you to carry luggage. If you need to place luggage tags, just put your email address and never indicate there your name, phone number, and home address.

    2. Air traveling is already part when going abroad or to a far place. You can see in the news that there are terrorists who sometimes highjack planes. One effective shield that you can use against an attacker (if there is trouble on the plane) is the seat straps. You have to use all your strength in ramming the strap on the attacker’s face. This move will cut off the attacker’s vision and once this happens, you can kick that individual in the groin or in any other sensitive body part. Knock that person until unconscious.

    3. Don’t forget to bring a handy flashlight and batteries. You can use it if there is no light or you can even use it against an attacker when needed.

    4. Don’t forget to carry wallets. If you want, you can take two wallets with you. One wallet can contain some non-important items and a few cash while the other wallet should contain your important IDs, insurance cards, cash, and emergency contacts. Keep the wallets in separate places. For instance, the insignificant wallet can be placed in your pant’s back pocket and the important wallet should be in your coat’s front pocket.

    5. When eating in foreign restaurants, you must acquaint yourself with the place’s layout. Take note of the front and exit doors.

    6. Charge your mobile phone at the hotel. When you leave, bring it with you and other gadgets that can be easily carried. You can even use these gadgets in case of emergencies.

    7. Never travel alone. Through there are some travelers who do this every time they travel, you shouldn’t take the chance. Who knows, perhaps they are just lucky but you’ll never know what’s going to happen in the next few hours. Always be prepared. Remember that devious individuals are just waiting to see a helpless traveler, alone and so vulnerable.

    8. You must be mentally alert at all times. Observe the people around you, how they move or look at you. Somehow, you will feel uneasy if something’s going to happen.

    9. Before you travel to a foreign place, it would be best to make a hotel reservation. That way, you don’t have to fumble or ask for directions in trying to locate a certain hotel.

    10. Don’t travel with so many luggage unless when needed. Try to wear comfortable clothes and don’t wear something that might attract the attention of bad people. Be simple as you are. For women, avoid wearing high-heeled shoes when traveling.

    These are just ten safety measures that you can follow every time you travel abroad or even locally. If you follow them, you can ensure your safety.

    The Pros and Cons of Vacation Packages

    One of reasons why I travel is because I find some great vacation packages available online. Are you interested in taking a trip or a vacation soon? If you are, will you need to book reservations on an airplane? If you will, you will find that you have a number of different booking options. One of those options, which typically comes highly rated and recommended, involves making your travel arrangements in the form of a vacation package.

    Although vacation packages do come highly rated and recommend, for the most part, many travelers are still unsure about buying them. This is most often the case with first time travelers. Many are unsure if vacation packages are really in their best interest. When trying to determine if booking your next travel arrangements in the form of a vacation package is a good idea, you will want to examine the pros and cons of doing so.

    As for the pros or plus sides to booking your travel arrangements in the form of a vacation package, you will find that there are a lot of them. One of those plus sides is that vacation packages are easy to find, especially online. Vacation packages are most commonly offered for sale through online travel websites. These online travel websites can be found with a standard internet search. Online travel websites are websites that allow you to compare airfare, hotel accommodations, and car rental reservations. Using online travel websites, to book a vacation or even just airline reservations, has a whole set of benefits on its own.

    Another pro or plus side to booking your next travel plans in the form of a vacation package is the money that you may be able to save. While there are no guarantees, consumers are typically rewarded for making all of their travel arrangements at once. This is neat, as many travelers already feel rewarded because of the time they are able to save by booking all of their travel arrangements at once. As for saved money, the discount that you will receive will all depend on the vacation package that you are purchasing, as well as who you are making that purchase from. Whether you receive a $5 discount or a $50 discount, you may be pleased with the savings.

    Another one of the many reasons why vacation packages come highly rated and recommend is because they come in a number of different formats. No matter what your travel needs are, you should be able to find a vacation package that can accommodate to you and your needs. For example, do you need to book a flight, make reservations at a hotel, and reserve a car rental? If so, you can do so. On the other hand, if you only need to book a flight and rent a car, you can still find vacation packages that allow you to do so. While most major online travel websites will only include motel, hotels, and vacation resorts in vacation packages, there are specialty travel websites out there that focus on other lodging options, including vacation homes.

    Although there are a number of pros or plus sides to booking your travel arrangements as a vacation package, it is also important to note that there are a number of downsides to doing so as well. Two of those downsides are the restrictions that you may be faced with, as well as the fact that you are not guaranteed to receive any discounts, although most will offer them. As for the restrictions that you may be faced with, not all cities and towns in the United States have accommodations that are needed for vacation packages, like a car rental company or a hotel. With that said, most can be found nearby.

    As you can see, there are both a number of pros and cons to making your travel arrangements in the form of a vacation package. What you are encouraged to do is take these above mentioned pros and cons and apply them to your own personal wants and needs.

    Top 10 destinations

    What not to miss

    Survey the World Heritage listed ruins of Angkor Wat. Take a sunset cruise off Phnom Penh. Visit the remnants of the Khmer Rouge regime. Eat fresh crab at coastal Kep. Trek through the jungle in remote Rattanakiri.

    When to visit

    The most popular time to go is between November and February. There is little rain and it isn’t too hot. The wet season runs from May to October and isn’t the best time for a Cambodian beach holiday. The wet does keep the crowds at bay and Angkor is wonderful in the wet season, so it isn’t all bad. April is scorchingly hot.

    Trivia

    Cambodian pop music features prominently in the music of Dengue Fever, a six-member band from the United States, who combine it with psychedelic rock.

    Jump to a destination

    For decades off limits to all but the most intrepid travellers, today Southeast Asia’s Cambodia is a popular destination for all kinds of folks: from independent backpackers who roam far into the hinterland to luxury tourists who stay in style and see Cambodia’s main drawcards between massages and exquisite French meals.

    The ancient temple complex of Angkor Wat is Cambodia’s national treasure. The nearby city of Siem Reap has developed dramatically since the days when Angelina Jolie filmed Tomb Raider here and fell in love with the nation.

    While some lament the discovery of Angkor by the masses, the site is still breathtaking and Siem Reap offers all of the comforts one could wish for on any budget. Those with more than a day or two to spend in the Angkor area will find a host of more obscure ancient temples and monuments which can be fascinating in their own right.

    Many do simply holiday at Angkor and travel no further, but Cambodia has a lot more to showcase. Consider as well a break on the lazy white-sand beaches of Sihanoukville. a stay at a stylish resort in resurging coastal Kep. or a tour to the atmospheric, mist-shrouded Bokor Hill Station for a taste of Cambodia’s 1960s heyday. Meanwhile, several of Cambodia’s islands have emerged as terrific alternatives to the more developed Thai islands.

    Many write off Phnom Penh. yet it’s a beautiful city, with a stunning colonial heritage, a gorgeous riverside promenade featuring a glittering palace, and a great selection of restaurants and bars.

    Shopping here has taken off: trawl the stalls of the Russian market for “antique” finds, wispy organza fabrics and chic ceramics, stop in a few boutiques for home-grown designer clothes and get some leather shoes handcrafted at a bargain price at one of the city’s skilled cobblers.

    The reminders of the horrific genocide perpetrated by Cambodia’s Khmer Rouge make for harrowing but essential viewing: do see Tuol Sleng and make a trip to the Killing Fields just outside the city for a sobering aside to your travels as you pause to remember the atrocities humans are capable of committing.

    Allegiant Air plans more nonstop flights for Pittsburgh #his #travel

    #airline tickets
    #

    Allegiant Air is making Pittsburgh a base of operations

    By Mark Belko / Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

    It won t arrive in time for Mardi Gras but Allegiant Air is giving Pittsburgh-area travelers reason to celebrate: A new nonstop flight to New Orleans.

    Allegiant will start twice-weekly service to the Crescent City from Pittsburgh International Airport on Feb. 19. The airline, which is expanding rapidly in Pittsburgh, also is adding a new seasonal flight to Palm Beach, Fla. and expanding its seasonal service to Myrtle Beach.

    Since touching down in Pittsburgh last February with flights to three Florida cities, the Las Vegas-based airline has added four others, counting the two new ones to be formally announced today.

    It also will make Pittsburgh a base of operations next month, a distinction that will bring with it up to 40 jobs and a permanently-based 156-seat Airbus 319 aircraft.

    With the new flights, Allegiant will become the airport s fourth largest carrier in terms of destinations behind Southwest, American and Delta.

    Pittsburgh travelers have been pretty enthusiastic about us. We really saw an opening for ultra low-cost service, which Pittsburgh hasn t previously had. The response that we ve seen has been overwhelmingly positive, Allegiant spokesman Justin Ralenkotter said.

    Pittsburgh has been without a nonstop flight to New Orleans for 10 years. For at least the last two years, the airport has been offering incentives such as landing fee waivers and increased marketing support to carriers willing to commit to nonstop flights to desired destinations.

    In conjunction with that, Allegiant will not have to pay gate or landing fees for the New Orleans and Palm Beach flights for a year.

    The twice-weekly New Orleans service will fly into Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport. Fares will start as low as $39 one way.

    Seasonal twice-weekly service to Palm Beach International Airport also will begin Feb. 19 with fares as low as $39 and operate through May 16. Allegiant will be competing on that route with Southwest Airlines, which will be offering a Saturday-only nonstop to the same airport from March 12 through April 9.

    We re really not competing for the same passengers as other carriers. We see ourselves as complementing or adding more choice to travel, Mr. Ralenkotter said.

    Allegiant will be starting its seasonal twice weekly service to Myrtle Beach April 7 next year, two months earlier than this year.

    Mr. Ralenkotter said the route has performed exceptionally well for us. The airline aims for planes that are at least 90 percent full, and the Myrtle Beach flight has exceeded those expectations, he noted.

    He added there is no hard or fast rule how quickly the airline expands in a city. Cincinnati, which like Pittsburgh has lost an airline hub, currently has Allegiant flights to 11 cities. Indianapolis has flights to seven destinations.

    Pittsburgh has done very well for us. We ve been very pleased with the results that we ve seen from the market there and how people have taken to our service in booking those flights, he said.

    Egypt plane crash: Airlines cancel more Sharm el-Sheikh flights

    24 November 2015

    Media caption British Airways and Easyjet have suspended flights to Sharm-el-Sheikh as Theo Leggett reports

    Two airlines have cancelled all flights between Sharm el-Sheikh and the UK until January following the suspected bombing of a Russian passenger jet.

    British Airways flights are cancelled up to and including 14 January and Easyjet services to the Egyptian resort are suspended until at least 6 January.

    Easyjet said the move was made to provide some certainty to passengers travelling over the Christmas period.

    BA said the decision was made following discussions with the UK government.

    Monarch, Thomson and Thomas Cook have cancelled flights until dates in December.

    Flights were halted after the UK government said the plane crash in the Sinai desert, which killed 224 people on 31 October, may have been caused by a bomb.

    Image copyright AFP Image caption British tourists flew home on special flights from Sharm el-Sheikh

    Easyjet said customers on affected flights could go to another destination, receive a full refund or get a flight voucher for future travel.

    The airline said it was keeping flights, which are scheduled to operate from 16 January, “under review”.

    It added: “The safety and security of our customers will continue to be our top priorities in any decisions we may make.”

    Easyjet said on its website. “We are sorry for the inconvenience this will obviously cause, but we hope that being clear with all our customers at this point helps you to manage your plans with more certainty.

    “The situation is beyond our control and passenger safety will always be our number one priority.”

    Other dates flights have been cancelled until are:

    Security measures

    George McGregor from London, who had been due to fly to Sharm el-Sheikh told the BBC it was “excellent news” – but Easyjet should have cancelled the flights sooner.

    “We were due to fly out on 23 December for Christmas and New Year. Total outlay, £1,444,” he said.

    “Until today we could not get our money back to fund an alternative holiday, and faced a charge of £180 if we wanted to change flights.”

    Ian Harrison, also from London, said he was first told he would only receive an exchange of flights but Easyjet has since offered him a refund.

    “It was pretty hard to get alternative accommodation that close to Christmas, or alternative flights, so not much of an offer.

    “I’ve pretty much cancelled my holiday.”

    ‘Value judgement’

    The Association of British Travel Agents (ABTA) said decisions over the use of Sharm el-Sheikh airport were made by the UK authorities rather than airlines.

    It said flights would only resume when the authorities were satisfied security was strong enough.

    ABTA spokesman Sean Tipton said: “The airlines are setting dates to give people a bit of certainty on where they stand.

    “The decision is not theirs about when the airport will be available again to use and there will be a degree of inconsistency in their policies because it is a value judgement.”

    The Foreign Office, which advises against all but essential air travel to or from Sharm el-Sheikh. says there are currently no UK airlines operating flights to the resort.

    Regular flights between the UK and Sharm el-Sheikh were were suspended on 4 November.

    Special security measures for flights returning to the UK, such as transporting hold baggage on separate planes, were put in place up to 17 November.

    Islamic State militants have claimed responsibility for bringing down the Airbus 321, operated by Russian airline Metrojet.
