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

Road Trip Planning – Map Your Trip

This part of road trip planning can be really fun!

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

Planning a trip

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

    4 Ridiculously fun road trip games for adults

    Combined comments & shares on social media

    Road trips are an awesome way to create memories with friends and family. Once you have the right people, all you need are some snacks, music and a few games to make it fun.

    Whether you want to start your road trip off on a high note, or are winding down to the destination and need a pick-me-up, road trip games can be a great way to keep people entertained.

    1. Guess Who? (10 Questions)

    This game can be played by 2 passengers at a time. One passenger thinks of a person, famous or personal connection. The other person can ask 10 yes or no questions that can lead them to figure out who the person is. The best one to start with is typically “Is this person a female (or male)?” Another good one is “Do I know this person?” Based on the yes or no answers, the player can then narrow down who it might be.

    2. Hot Seat

    Everyone can participate in this one. The hot seat is essentially an interview game where one passenger is asked five questions by anyone else in the car and they have to answer. You can choose to allow a veto for one, so they can avoid any super-awkward questions.

    3. A to Z

    The objective of the game is to be the first one to spot things along the road trip that start with each letter of the alphabet in order. A for apple tree, and B for BMW will get you in the lead as the other people in the car try to catch up with their ABC call-outs along the way. Each passenger is responsible for keeping their own count, and no one can repeat the same thing twice.

    4. Waze

    This isn’t a standard road-trip game, but it is a way to help other drivers along your trip. Waze (https://www.waze.com/) is a community-based traffic app which allows other drivers in your area to share real-time traffic tips. There are gaming aspects, like the ability to see other friends in the area, so rest stops and arrivals can be better coordinated.

    I’ll be taking a long road trip from New York to Virginia Beach in September, and definitely will be doing all of these. What are some of your favorite road-trip games?

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

    #cuba travel
    #

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

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

    Ready to go? Here s what you should know.

    1. Don t expect anything to change overnight

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

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

    2. Some prices may fall

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

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

    3. but demand is likely to pick up quickly.

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

    4. The infrastructure isn t there yet.

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

    5. New options are coming.

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

    Family Vacations in Europe – Overview of Trip Ideas #madagascar #travel

    #european travel
    #

    Family Vacations in Europe

    Pilot your own barge, or cruise along in catered luxury. Often, bikes are provided along with the barge, so families can explore beyond their river or canal.

    Have a look at some high-end family bike holidays on which all details are handled. A lower-budget option is suggested, too.

    Pack the plastic swords and crowns, and take the family to stay stay overnight in a castle. Some are surprisingly affordable.

    Definitely a vacation your neighbors haven t done yet.

    And what a wonderful way to see the famed Irish countryside: in your own comfy gypsy-style caravan, drawn by a patient horse. Picture a tiny version of a covered wagon like you see in old Westerns. These caravans have beds and a kitchenette.

    Continue Reading Below

    Rent a (surprisingly affordable) cottage on Balmoral Estate. and the Queen will be your landlady. Take a guided walk, or enjoy great hiking and cycling in the area.

    Picture quaint wooden stalls filled with marionettes and wood carvings and Christmas toys, then add the smells of toasted chestnuts and gingerbread. Christmas Markets are a centuries-old German tradition. The market in Dresden dates back to 1434. Many towns vie to have the best market, or the biggest candle or biggest Christmas Tree.

    Stay Somewhere Fun

    The places below provide fun for the family right on the property. Enjoy them as destinations or as a home base for exploring the environs.

    • Eurocamp. Forget your usual ideas about camping. Guests can stay in bungalows or deluxe three-room tents equipped with beds, and enjoy resort-like facilities and kids programs.
    • Center Parcs Family Resorts. here s where European families go for getaways. Stay in a large cottage and a huge recreational property, with kids programs and an indoor tropical pool complex.
    • Familotel Holiday Hotels for Families
      A great idea for families with young kids, these family holiday hotels in Germany, Austria, Italy, and Switzerland offer kids activities, childcare and babycare, play zones, baby gear and even strollers. Choose from ski holidays or summer holidays with pools, slides, and outdoors fun.
    • Hay Hotels. Stay in a barn in the German countryside. At heuhotels , guests sleep on a bed of dried grass, perhaps in a loft, or in feed stalls fitted out with wooden platforms; bring your own sleeping bag and towels. (Though a few hay hotels are offering more amenities.)

    An even more unique place to stay — though you ll probably only want to stay a night or two — is Lapland, Sweden s Ice Hotel. Sleep in special sleeping bags on beds made of ice and covered with reindeer skins; warm outdoor clothing is provided. A tour company sells a package that arranges all.

    Other Ideas About Places to Stay

    Renting a multi-room abode with a kitchen has many advantages for families. A variation on the typical type of vacation home rental is offered by Untours. a company that offers hand-picked vacation rentals in apartments, farmhouses or cottages, plus insider tips for the area and a local contact.

    Budget travel is perfectly respectable in Europe, and here s a way for families to save big-time. Hostels have changed much in recent years, and former youth hostels now welcome people of all ages including families who, in many places, can stay in family rooms. Spartan but clean, these rooms typically have bunk beds, and sometimes a private bathroom; otherwise, a toilet and shower will be just a few steps away (–and extremely clean, in our experience.) Some hostels are housed in architectural treasures: castles in Scotland, a centuries-old villa in Verona, former monasteries. places that are low in cost and high in character.

    Southwest fares drop below $100 round trip in 72-hour sale

    Southwest rolled out a 72-hour, nationwide fare sale Tuesday (June 2) in which the price of its flights are roughly based to distance. Dozens of the carrier s shortest routes are available for fares of less than $100 round trip. USA TODAY

    Southwest rolled out a 72-hour, nationwide fare sale Tuesday (June 2) in which the price of its flights are roughly based to distance. Dozens of the carrier’s shortest routes are available for fares of less than $100 round trip.

    The sale covers travel from Aug. 25 through Dec. 16, though some holiday periods are blacked out. And bargain hunters must act quick; the sale concludes at the end of the day Thursday (June 4).

    Southwest has previously rolled out similar fare sales in which fares were pegged to mileage thresholds. In past years, for example, Southwest ‘s sales priced flights of 500 miles or less at $49 each way and increased from there. Flights of 501 to 1,000 miles cost $99 each way and flights of 1,001 to 1,500 miles cost $129 each way. Flights of more than 1,500 miles went for $149 each way.

    Hotel, Cars for Biden’s Thanksgiving Trip to Italy and Croatia Cost $307,118

    November 25, 2015 12:10 pm

    Hotel rooms and car service for Vice President Joe Biden’s Thanksgiving trip to Rome and Croatia cost over $300,000, according to recently released government contracts.

    The vice president, his wife, Jill, and other relatives are spending the holiday abroad. Biden is first making a stop in Zagreb, Croatia, for meetings, before heading to Italy on Wednesday.

    The State Department issued four contracts for hotel rooms in Rome from Nov. 25 to Nov. 29, for a total cost of $208,582.

    The government also spent $7,676 for “ambulance support” for Biden’s Rome trip.

    For the Croatia leg of the trip, the government issued multiple contracts for car services.

    Contracts were issued for car service in Croatia costing $23,997. along with $24,541 for Atlas vehicle rental, and $21,453 for taxi service.

    Four additional contracts were issued for vehicle rentals in Croatia, in the amounts of $7,849. $862. $5,014. and $7,144 .

    The total tab for hotels and car contracts released for the trip thus far is $307,118.

    The vice president will be in Rome from Wednesday evening until Sunday, with two meetings scheduled on Friday.

    “In Rome, the Vice President will meet with Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi,” according to the White House press office. “Afterwards, the Vice President will hold a bilateral meeting with Archbishop Paul Gallagher, the Secretary for Relations with States of the Holy See.”

    The New York Times reported that the Bidens and “some other relatives” are spending the holiday in Rome to avoid their usual family gathering in Nantucket because of the recent death of the vice-president’s son, Beau.

Most trip insurance covers delays, interruptions, baggage loss, medical evacuation, cancellation and more, carefully detailed at the point of purchase.

    Q: Why do foreigners need to get Tibet Travel Permit (TTP)?

    A: The Chinese Government requires that non-Chinese citizens (foreign tourists, Taiwan and overseas Chinese tourists except Hong Kong and Macao residents with Chinese SAR passports or Home Visit Permit), must get TTP issued by Tibet Tourism Bureau (TTB) before entering Tibet due to :

    1. Tibet’s unique national traditions

    2. Requirement for ecological environment protection

    3. Limited traffic situation and reception capacity

    4. Tourism service facilities

    It is also stipulated that foreign journalists and diplomats may not enter Tibet as tourists. Application for TTP usually takes 3 working days.

    Non-Chinese citizen compatriots are required to join a guided trip, organized in advance by an authorized travel agency. They may not travel independently.

    Q: What’s the difference between “Tibet Travel Permit” and “Tibet Group VISA”

    A: Tibet Travel Permit (TTP) is the permission for foreign tourists to enter Tibet, issued by Tibet Tourism Bureau.

    Tibet Group VISA is a special Chinese VISA only valid in Tibet. It is issued by the Chinese Embassy in Kathmandu. Tourists who want to enter Tibet from Kathmandu (Federal Democratic Republic of Nepal) must apply for a Tibet Group Visa in Kathmandu even if already holding a Chinese VISA.

    Q: If I want to enter Tibet from China mainland, what should I be aware of when applying for the Chinese VISA?

    A: We recommend obtaining the visa before leaving the home country. When applying for the Chinese VISA, we advise NOT to mention Tibet in any way on the application form. It is advisable to refer to other places in China such as Beijing, Shanghai, Xi’an, etc. Chinese VISA officer may reject the application otherwise.

    Q: Do I need a double/multi-entry VISA if I go to Tibet from China mainland and return to China mainland after the trip?

    A: No. Tibet is part of China, Single-entry visa would be enough.

    Q: If we want to enter Tibet from Nepal, how to apply for Tibet Group VISA? Is it possible to obtain it before arriving in Kathmandu?

    A: It is only possible to apply for the Tibet Group VISA after arriving in Kathmandu. We would need the original passport to apply for the VISA on your behalf. A special VISA is required when entering from Nepal. The extra cost is currently USD 114 and USD 198 for American passport holders. It can only be issued by the Chinese Embassy in Nepal. Our agency can apply for it on your behalf once you are in Kathmandu. The Chinese Embassy in Katmandu is only open in the mornings Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Please note, in this case, you don’t need to apply for the Chinese VISA from your own country in advance.

    Step 1: Book the tour with us (contact us ) and send us the scanned copy of your passport

    Step 2: We will apply for the ‘Visa Invitation Letter’ from Tibet Tourism Bureau and send it to our Nepal office before you arrival in Kathmandu

    Step 3: After your arrival in Katmandu, our Nepal colleagues will collect your original passport directly from your hotel and apply for the Chinese VISA. It usually takes us one day to complete the process.

    Q: Is the original permit required to travel?

    Entering by train: the original permit is not required. We will email you a scanned copy of the permit for you to print. Please bring the copy with you, it will be enough to board the train.

    Entering by plane: if you are traveling from a city in mainland China, we will send the original permit by express courier to your designated address (private residence, company address or hotel). If you are only stopping in mainland China for a flight connection, a member of our staff will hand you the permit in the airport.

    For travel details

    Q: Why some of your programs choose Nepal as the door for entering Tibet?

    Q: What currency is it in use in Tibet?

    A: The legal currency is the Chinese RMB (CNY). Foreign currencies may not be used directly in Tibet although they can be obviously converted into RMB at all banks in Tibet.

    Q: How is the quality of accommodation in Tibet?

    A: Tourism in Tibet is in its infancy and the number of 4-star hotels is quite limited. Newest hotels have been built away from city centers in order to protect historical city architectures and the environment.

    Quality standards of services and facilities may not be comparable to international hotel ratings. Our agency normally reserves 3-star hotels, but we can also reserve hotels of higher or lower ratings according to your request.

    Q: Is there internet access in Tibet?

    A: Yes. Internet cafes and some hotels provide access to the internet.

    Q: Is there anything I should bring according to Tibet’s special environment?

    Bags: a large backpack and a smaller one. The smaller one can be used for daily activities and can also be put into the big one when necessary.

    It is advisable to bring a waist pack to put personal properties and documents.

    Cold-proof clothes: Air temperature can swing dramatically on the altiplano. In northern Tibet, peak temperatures rarely exceed 4-5 degrees Celsius and snowfalls are not unusual even in summer months. As a reference, local people wear thick coats all year round.

    In Lhasa, temperatures in July swing from 30 degrees at daytime to 10 degrees at night. It might snow or sleet at night, making it advisable to take some down garments (those with hats would be best), woolen sweaters, warm gloves, warm and wind-proof shoes and socks. Wearing several layers of clothing that can be easily added or removed is usually the wisest choice since temperatures may vary greatly within a single day. A down coat is necessary for those who are traveling beyond Lhasa and Shigatse into more remote areas such as the Everest Camp. A windbreaker plus a sweater will work nicely for strolling around Lhasa in summer. During the peak touristic season, frequent rainfall makes waterproof clothing and rain gears an absolute necessity. Other essentials to pack include several pairs of cotton or woolen underwear, woolen socks, long sleeve cotton or lightweight wool shirts and T-shirts. Women should avoid skirts or dresses.

    Shoes: It is very important to have a strong and comfortable pair of boots. Lightweight boots could do, but Tibet can indeed become wet quickly and our trips involve extensive walking. It is therefore strongly advisable to double check shoes fit well and are suitable for cold and wet weather. It will be handy to carry a pair of comfortable and robust sandals.

    Protection against sunburn light: As solar light during sunshine is particularly intense, sunglasses, sunhat and suntan lotions are required.

    Ladies and people with sensitive skins are particularly advised to bring high SPF sun-creams.

    Medicine: it is advisable to bring an adequate supply of any prescription medication you may use regularly, including inhalers for asthma. Most over-the-counter medicines, such as aspirin and anti-diarrheal pills, are available in Lhasa, but are more difficult to obtain outside of urban areas. If you wear contact lenses, be sure to bring enough cleaning solution for the term of your stay, since this is hard to find, and noticeably expensive, in Tibet.

    Diamox pills are believed to prevent altitude sickness.

    Please always consult your doctor prior to traveling to Tibet.

    Trekking equipments: Some trekking supplies (down and fleece jackets, boots, bags, etc.) are available in Lhasa, but it is always best to source them before departing as supplies are unpredictable.

    Electrical current: The electrical current in Tibet is 220v, AC 50 Hz. There are numerous different plug types used in Tibet. so it might be easier to purchase an adapter upon arrival.

    Q: Can I have a Tibetan guide who speaks my language?

    A: Most guides of our agency are natural Tibetan; they are all holding qualified guide license and foreign language certificate.

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

    #travel itinerary template
    #

    Sometimes Nothing Beats a Good Ol Fashioned Piece of Paper!

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

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

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

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

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

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

    Items to Include on Your Travel Cheat Sheet

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

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

    Bring a Hard Copy of Your Cheat Sheet Keep It Handy

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

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

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

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

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

    Trip Cancellation Coverage #travel #thailand

    #travel cancellation insurance
    #

    Trip Cancellation Coverage

    This coverage reimburses up to 100% of your pre-paid, non refundable travel costs when an unforeseen and covered event causes you to cancel your trip.

    Let us tell you a story

    Rob and Jennifer planned a Colorado ski trip with their two children. They pre-paid for a ski package that included rooms at a lodge right at the base of the lifts. Their ski package also included lessons for the kids and lift tickets for the parents.

    Just four days prior to departure, the kids woke with high fevers and sore, scratchy throats. A trip to their pediatrician revealed they had strep and canceling the trip was recommended by the doctor.

    With trip cancellation coverage on their travel insurance policy, Rob and Jennifer were able to recover their pre-paid non refundable costs – even the lift tickets. They could take the kids skiing another time.

    What does Trip Cancellation cover?

    Trip cancellation is pre-departure coverage that reimburses you (up to the covered amount) for pre-paid non refundable trip costs if you have to cancel your trip for a covered reason. This benefit also pays the additional cost in the per person rates (known as a single supplement fee) if a traveling companion s covered trip is cancelled but yours is not.

    While each plan defines what its trip cancellation benefit covers, the following are common reasons for trip cancellations:

    • Injury or illness – An injury or illness of you, your destination host, your traveling companion, a family member, or business partner.
    • Weather or natural disaster – A natural disaster destroys your destination, your intended destination accommodations, or your own home.
    • Hurricane A hurricane destroys your home or your destination prior to your departure.
    • Schedule conflicts – Schedule issues may include jury duty, court summons, or school year extensions.
    • Traffic Accidents – You or your traveling companion are in a traffic accident en route to your scheduled departure.
    • Property damage – Your home, your business, or your destination accommodations are vandalized, burglarized, or damaged through criminal acts.
    • Terrorism or mandatory evacuations – A terrorist event that occurs at your destination and results in mandatory evacuations.
    • Bankruptcy or financial default – A pre-paid travel supplier completely ceases all operations due to financial default or bankruptcy.
    • Assaults You or your traveling companion are a victim of a felonious assault prior to your scheduled departure.
    • Work conflicts – You or your traveling companion are terminated, required to transfer to a new work location, or in the military and deployed to help with disaster relief.  (An optional upgrade, cancel for work reasons . provides coverage for additional employment conflicts.)
    • Illness or Death of host – Hospitalization or death of your destination host.
    • Labor strikes Your travel is disrupted or flights are cancelled due to an unannounced labor strike.
    • Theft or loss of passport/visa You cannot travel because your passport or visa has been lost or stolen.

    This benefit is distinctly different from trip interruption coverage. which goes into effect after a traveler has started his or her trip.

    What’s NOT Covered?

    The trip cancellation coverage of any travel insurance policy covers the unforeseen events that are listed in the policy. This also means that if the plan doesn’t list the event, then cancellation for that reason won’t be covered.

    Trip cancellation coverage will never cover a traveler for:

    • Canceling a trip where the purpose of which is to obtain medical treatment.
    • Canceling a trip for routine medical treatment for an existing medical condition.
    • Canceling a trip because the traveler feels that taking the trip would be unsafe.
    • Canceling a trip because the weather is not agreeable.
    • Canceling a trip because the traveler decided they couldn’t afford the expense.
    • Canceling a trip due to mental or psychological disorders, including anxiety, depression, and more.
    • Canceling a trip because the traveler had a change of heart.
    • Canceling a trip due to pregnancy, child birth, or an elective abortion other than medical complications of pregnancy that threaten the life of mother or child.
    • Canceling a trip due to a government regulation or prohibition.
    • Canceling a student trip because the school board canceled the trip.
    • Canceling a trip due to civil riots at your destination.
    • Canceling a trip due to alcohol or substance abuse.
    • Canceling a trip due to mental illness or panic attacks.
    • Canceling a trip due to unlawful acts committed by the insured, their traveling companion, or a family member, whether insured or not.
    • Canceling a trip due to an intentionally self-inflicted injury, suicide, or attempted suicide of the insured, their traveling companion, or a family member, whether insured or not.

    It’s important to note, however, that adding the ‘cancel for any reason’ option to your travel insurance plan will help in these situations.

    Some exclusions can be waived by adding options to your travel insurance policy:

    • Canceling a trip due to a pre-existing medical condition.
    • Canceling a trip due to travel supplier financial default.
    • Canceling a trip because you are required to work. *

    * Some plans include cancellations for work reasons benefits in their plans. Specifically, Travel Guard’s Platinum and Gold plans include this benefit automatically. Other plans have ‘cancel for work reasons’ as an option that can be added.

    Important notes about this coverage

    • The effective date for trip cancellation coverage begins at 12:01 a.m. the day after the premium is paid.
    • This coverage ends at the earliest of either: the cancellation of your trip, or the date and time you start your trip
    • You must notify the travel suppliers and the plan provider of your intent to cancel prior to trip departure (unless you are incapable of doing so).

    What type of policy covers this?

    Almost all package plans include some coverage for trip cancellations, but what the coverage covers varies from plan to plan.

    What to Wear in London on your trip to the United

    #travel to london

    What to Wear in London and other parts of England

    British fashion is partly defined by the country’s infamous weather. It is unpredictable and changeable and when the weather man on the television tells you that it will be sunny all week, be prepared for rain. What to wear in London has everything to do with the weather.

    No matter the time of year, always keep a travel-size umbrell a in your purse.

    In Britain it’s easy for the traveler to stick out like a sore thumb – walking boots, convertible zip leg trousers . SLR camera, guidebook and a backpack in the middle of London can easily scream “tourist.” Sadly in some parts this can make you a bit of a target but it’s also easy to blend in with the locals. British fashion isn’t quite as chic as the French . isn’t always as slouchy as American or as zany as Australian. But then again, I’ve seen people dressed as pirates on the tube and no-one bats an eyelid.

    Like anywhere, pack for the environment – are you spending your time café crawling in the cities or getting lost in Scottish wilderness?

    Also remember that Britain is one of those places where if you forget anything, you’ll be able to pick it up when you get there (and it won’t cost you an arm and a leg.) So don’t be afraid of packing light. Try to stick to a small selection of colors to make it easier to mix and match your items.

     What to Wear in London and the UK in Winter

    December, January February

    For city exploring don t be afraid to break the don’t take your jeans traveling rule . They aren’t appropriate for hiking but I can’t think of anything more ideal to wear walking round London on a frosty winter morning.

    Winter is cold and 2013 has been predicted to be the coldest winter for 100 years (global warming etc.) The key is to wrap up warm – wear lots of layers, (especially if you don’t fancy bringing a heavy winter coat along) and drink plenty of tea.

    When planning what to wear in London pack tights, leggings and knee-high socks for extra warmth. Don’t forget the essential winter woollies either –hat, scarf and gloves.

    Wear leggings or tights under your jeans for extra warmth. These leggings are a popular choice with the TFG readers and are lined with fleece.

    Footwear – I find a comfy pair of waterproof ankle boots perfect. Soggy feet aren’t fun, neither are blisters. Be prepared for the wet as well as the cold.

    Ankle booties  are the perfect choice any time of year.

    What to Wear in London and the UK in Spring

    March, April May

    In spring it rains a lot. I usually carry a compact umbrella with me at all times in the UK, so that I’m always prepared for spontaneous showers – not just in spring.

    Spring is that transition period between winter and summer, so layers are still important when planning what to wear in London, but in the later months think about swapping that chunky coat for a regular jacket.

    Transform a temperate outfit on a chilly day with a scarf, hat and tights. Skirts are fun but remember that it can get quite breezy so you ll have to wear double layers underneath.

    If you’re in the countryside you’re bound to see waves of differing spring flowers and baby lambs, but remember to be prepared for the mud.

    It s not uncommon to see people wearing these Hunter rain boots on very rainy days.

    What to Pack for a Trip to London and the UK in Summer

    June, July August

    Summer can be warm but can also be very wet – be prepared for both. Check bbc.co.uk/weather/ before your trip to get the most accurate forecast. Don t be surprised if it s grey and gloomy in the summer!

    If the forecast calls for sun, be bright and bold as you plan what to pack for London! Crack out the summer dresses, sunglasses and hats. Once again, be aware of the breezes so you might want to consider layering – sometimes jersey skirts and dresses hold their shape better than wispy skater styles.

    A cardigan and a scarf are essentials layers to any summer outfit in case the sun decides to go in.

    You can never go wrong with a light leather jacket for cooler summer days and nights.

    A comfy pair of sandals are great for walking about town on warm days but ankle boots and ballet flats  are ideal the rest of the time.

    A note on bags:  Personally I am a big fan of satchels for cities and rucksacks for countryside. I often feel that a satchel with a zip can be safer than many daypacks, which can also be unnecessary for city exploring.

    Find out why cross-body purses  are the best travel shoulder bags for women.

    What to Wear in London and the UK in Autumn

    September, October November

    Autumn is my favorite season in general and also to dress for. I love the crunchy leaves, the mild weather and the earthy colors.

    As the transitional period between summer and winter, things start to get colder and milder in the autumn. When planning what to pack for London this time of year it’s time to think about a woolly hat and light waterproof jacket such as  this one .

    If you’re a skirt and dress person rather than a trouser person, then leggings and opaque tights are essential to make outfits a little warmer.

    Scarves are extremely useful and a warm knit option will help keep you warm during this transitional season. When it’s not quite cold enough for a coat, then a jumper or cardigan combined with a hat and a scarf will do. Remember, layering is key!

    5 Important Packing Tips

    • Dress for the weather, activity environment – make sure you’re comfortable .
    • Always carry an umbrella with you.
    • Scarves are extremely versatile – in the winter a chunky knit will keep you snug whilst in the summer a lighter scarf can help protect you from the sun.
    • If you’re not used to colder climates. still plan for “winter” weather YEAR ROUND. Layers are key!
    • If in doubt, bring an empty suitcase and head to the nearest Primark to stock up on cheap clothing that is both weather appropriate and locals approved!

    When you’re planning what to pack for a trip to London and the UK, follow these travel tips to keep you in line with the fussy weather. Thanks for this helpful post Lottie! Don’t forget to check out The Ambling Explorer .

    Travel Planning – Tips for Planning Your Trip #affordable #travel

    #travel planning

    Travel Planning

    Travel planning can help or hurt you, depending how far you take it. The best way to break travel plans is to make them in the first place!  This is true, because you will most likely meet people along the way or see things that make you want to change your itinerary entirely.

    Try not to make the mistake of setting a strict timeline; instead, focus on a loose plan to help you get the most out of your trip. It is worth researching things like festivals, weather, and visa requirements so that you will have some idea of what to expect.

    Extreme flexibility beats extreme preparation any day!

    Where to Start Travel Planning?

    The only two things that you have to know for sure to begin your trip: what country you want to start with and when you want to go. Everything else done for travel planning is simply a bonus.

    When choosing your destinations, keep these things in mind:

    • Seasonal Weather:  Many tropical areas can have months of continuous rain. Forget getting a tan or enjoy any diving if you visit during the wet seasons, although accommodation prices will be rock bottom and there may be less tourists.  Most people plan their travel around the monsoon seasons.
    • Budget considerations:  You will get way more bang for your buck in developing regions like Southeast Asia, Africa, India, and South America as opposed to Australia, North America, or Europe.
    • Time of year:  Other than weather considerations, you may want to plan your travel around things like huge festivals and crowded tourists seasons. Imagine arriving in a country, just missing a historic festival by days, but still paying the high prices imposed because of the visitors that were drawn to the festival.
    • Political climate:  The mainstream news media seems to play up the dangers of traveling abroad, particularly for Americans. In reality, there are very few places that are too dangerous to travel provided that you use some common sense.
    • Language:  Don t let the local language no matter how difficult be a deterrent to visiting a country. English, of varying quality, is spoken almost everywhere that there are tourists. Learning the local language is a nice way to enhance your trip, however, doing so is not a requirement. Do not worry about studying too much before the trip, you will learn a language exponentially faster once you arrive.

    Travel Planning with Guide Books

    Once you have an idea of where you want to start your journey, go buy only the guidebook for your first destination. Books are too heavy and expensive to carry more than one destination s worth. Besides, you can trade with other travelers that have just come from your next country or buy them locally.

    With the amount of free information on sites such as WikiTravel.com, buying a guide book is optional anyway.

    • Lonely Planet is the most popular guidebook for budget travelers love it or hate it.
    • If you buy one of the gigantic consolidated versions like Southeast Asia on a Shoestring , feel free to tear out countries that you do not plan to visit. Removing unimportant pages will conserve precious space and weight in your backpack. Save the pages and staple them together for later just in case!
    • Do not get guidebookitus when planning travel don t make the guide book your new Bible. Believe it or not, but there are places to eat, stay, and visit that are NOT covered in the guide books. In fact, you can almost count on the top several places listed for accommodation to be full during the busy seasons.
    • Watch out for the Lonely Planet effect . The LP Effect is a theory that suggests too many backpackers are using the guidebook, so all the places listed with excellent reviews near the top of each section become saturated with business. With so much good business coming in no matter what, the actual quality of service declines at these places because they no longer have to try so hard. Sometimes this is true, so trust your own judgment about a place and listen to other travelers that have stayed there. The positive side of the LP Effect is that if you are looking to meet other backpackers, these places are usually where the party is.

    Travel Planning Advice From Travelers

    When travel planningl, take full advantage of the travel forums in places like www.bootsnall.com and our very own Backpacking Forums. Many of the people out there are genuine, have just come from your future destination, and are anxious to help.

    Try reading travel blogs! Most of those people are not being paid to write, and you will get an honest, personal glimpse into what a destination was like. Check out some vagabonding blogs here on the site. (or my very own http://www.vagabondinglife.com )

    Remember that everyone travels in their own style. What you consider a bonus adventure might be someone else s nightmare if they are expecting more luxury on the road than you. Take things that people tell you with a grain of salt, as people tend to filter memories through one or two specific events that happened when they were there.

    Traveling Solo or Together

    • You will need to decide from the start if you are going to travel alone or with a friend. Needless to say, this decision will radically change the overall experience of your trip. Many first-time backpackers especially women feel more comfortable if they have a familiar face from home tagging along. The truth is that you never have to be alone; other solo travelers are always available and team up together. Read about traveling alone .

    Here are a handful of things to think about for travel planning:

    • Local Customs:  Learn how not to offend someone accidentally. Offenses and customs differ between Buddhists, Muslims, etc. If you re starting in Thailand, go read about Thailand etiquette .
    • Currency Exchange Rate:. Know the current exchange rate before you hit the ground. You can check rates directly on Google with a search string like 1 USD in Thai baht.
    • Book Your First Night:  Consider booking your very first night at your first destination. You will probably be exhausted after the flight, and having a room provides a good peace of mind. Only book one or two nights, then shop around in the morning for something better/cheaper. HostelWorld.com is the most popular site for booking.

    Be a Wanderer!

    If you have less time abroad, then plan more; otherwise, try to resist the urge to over plan. When travel planning. strive to just stay flexible, keep your eyes and mind open for new experiences and opportunities, and let the road take you where it takes you.

    Travel Search Engines to Help You Plan Your Trip

    By Melanie Renzulli. United States Travel Expert

    Before you can embark on a new travel adventure, you must handle logistics: Where will you go? When will you go? How much can you afford to pay? These are just a few of the questions to consider when going to a travel search engine to book flights, hotels, and rental cars.

    While we all have our favorite go-to travel search engines for booking our travels, there may be other travel search websites that better suit your needs depending on the type of trip you wish to take. Below is a look at a few of the options that are available to help you plan and book your travel online.

    Big Travel Search Aggregators

    Travel Search Innovator

    One of the newest travel search engines is Hipmunk . .

    Hipmunk s innovation is in its layout of travel search results. Search for flights and you are given a visual representation of flight details, including cost, length of flight, time of day, and whether or not the flight has wifi. All of these are mapped on a useful grid, which takes a lot of the guesswork out of itinerary building. Look to Hipmunk s efficient format to catch on very quickly.

    9 Planning Tips For An Amazing Trip

    Home Trip Planning Tips

    Heading off on a big adventure, but not sure what’s involved. These trip planning tips will help you get a handle on the things you need to consider.

    1. Organise your documents

    Make sure you have an up to date passport, that will be up to date for the duration of your trip. Check visa requirements for the country you are travelling to. Some countries require that you arrange a visa before you leave home, while others will grant a tourist visa when you land! Make sure you have a suitable travel insurance organised.

    2. Book flights and accomodation

    One of the fun parts about travelling is the booking of your flights and/or accommodation (have you checked out Travellerspoint’s accommodation section yet?!). Make sure you shop around at different travel agents, because prices can vary widely. Check that the prices quoted include all taxes and surcharges.

    3. Get any vaccinations you might need

    Make an appointment with your doctor to check what vaccinations you need or any medicine you should take with you. Common ones to look out for are Typhoid, Malaria and Hepatitis. not the kind of things you want as souvenirs!

    4. Look after the home front

    Unfortunately, while you’re away, there are often still things that need to be looked after back home. Make sure you have arrangements in place for someone to look after your bills, plants and mail. If you are going to be leaving a house empty, consider finding someone to house-sit for you while you’re away.

    5. Organise things to do

    Make a list of things that you plan to do while away. Do some research on the internet about your holiday destination. There may be special events on that you can only attend if you book in advance. Planning what you’re going to see will make it a lot easier to relax when you’re on holidays!

    6. Make a packing list

    Start making a packing list a few weeks in advance or use our packing list. As the weeks go by, you will undoubtedly think of many more things to add. Write them down as you go, then pack everything on your list in the last day or two.

    7. Look after your finances

    Find out what currency you will need and figure out the best way for you to deal with it. Credit cards can be convenient, but also unsafe in a lot of areas. Travellers cheques are a good safe alternative.

    8. Stay in touch

    Take an address book with you, with all the important contacts in it. Check on any foreign phone codes and write them in your address book. Before you start your trip, make sure you let people know that you will be away and how they can contact you while you’re away. If you don’t have an email address that you can check on the road, you can set up one through Gmail. Yahoo. Hotmail or become a Travellerspoint member to keep an online diary or blog of your travels and have your friends and family send you messages through our internal messaging system.

    9. Ask for help

    If you have any more questions about country specific issues, you can contact one of our Travel Helpers. who are always happy to answer any questions. This feature is available to all Travellerspoint members and is completely free.

    We hope you have a great trip, and here’s some travel tips to help you on your way!

    That’s our brief list of things to consider. If you think there is something else which should be added to our trip planning guide, contact us with your suggestions and we will gladly review them.

    RTA Trip Planner | RTA, CTA, Metra, Pace, Driving and Biking Directions | Better Directions, Better Trip Planner.

    Did You Know?

    If one in 10 Americans regularly used transit, U.S. reliance on foreign oil could decline by more than 40%, or nearly the amount of oil imported from Saudi Arabia each year.

    Help

    About the Chicago Trip Planner

    The goroo Chicago Trip Planner provides you with step-by-step directions to reach your destination in the Chicago region using buses and trains or by driving, biking, and walking. Just tell us where you’re starting and where you’re going, and we’ll make sure we take you there!

    Your customized Chicago trip planner itinerary will show you:

    • which bus or train to catch
    • when and where to board
    • when and where to transfer, if necessary
    • how much fare is required
    • walking directions to and from your stop(s)
    • driving, biking, and walking directions to and from your destinations
    • visual maps of your trip

    Itineraries, directions, and maps are based on information supplied to the RTA by its public transit operators: the CTA, Metra, and Pace. Schedule and route information is based on the latest timetables available and is subject to change without notice. Service may be affected by traffic, construction, accidents, or weather conditions.

    Entering a Location

    You can enter a location into the goroo trip planner in four formats: a street address, intersection, location of a bus stop or train station, or a landmark.

    When entering street addresses, type in the complete address as much as possible including the street directions (N, S, E, W), street suffix (Rd, Street, Ave, etc.), and the city location (e.g. 175 W Jackson Blvd, Chicago).

    If you are entering an intersection you must separate the street names by a comma (Addison, Clark), by “and” (Addison and Clark), or by the symbol ” ” (Addison Clark). If your intersection is not recognized, try including the type of street such as, Green Bay Road or Torrence Avenue.

    To enter a landmark, simply type the landmark name, such as Navy Pier or Wrigley Field.

    If the Trip Planner finds more than one location that matches your request, or if there is an error in the input, you will be presented a list of choices to select from.

    Setting the Timing of Your Trip

    The current date and time are automatically filled in when you visit the goroo Trip Planner page. You can plan a trip up to two weeks in advance.

    I want to leave on: If you are ready to take your trip now use this option and choose a time.

    I want to arrive on: If you would like to arrive at your destination at a specific time, use this option and choose a time.

    Additional Preferences

    The goroo Chicago Region Trip Planner can build an itinerary that suits your needs.

    You can decide if you want a trip that uses only buses, only trains, or both trains and buses or driving, biking, and walking. The default is both trains and buses.

    You can indicate the maximum distance you would like to walk. The goroo Trip Planner defaults to an allowable walking distance of 1/2 mile. You may adjust this to 1/4 mile, 3/4 mile, 1 mile, 2 miles, or 3 miles.

    You can also decide if you want a trip that is quickest, is the cheapest, has the fewest transfers possible, or has the least amount of walking. The goroo Trip Planner defaults to the quickest trip.

    You can also indicate if you require accessible services such as a lift, a ramp, an elevator, or an accessible station.

    Plan Your Trip

    After you enter the relevant information, click on the “Take Me There!” button. Please wait a few seconds while the goroo Trip Planner finds your starting point and destination, looks for routing alternatives, and compiles itineraries and maps for you.

    Results Page

    The goroo Trip Planner will display up to six trips in tabular format. For each trip option, you can view detailed driving, biking, or walking directions to and between stops (in case you need to transfer).

    You can also plan your return trip by using the “Reverse Directions” feature. For your convenience, you can also change your trip preferences directly from this page.

    From this page, you can print or email trip itineraries, directions, or maps.

    Driving Directions

    The goroo Chicago Trip Planner promotes the cleanest, most sustainable transportation method, which typically means utilizing public transit over driving. However, we provide driving directions, maps and driving times as part of the service offering, because we understand that there are times when public transit does not fit in conveniently to your travel plans. On the results page, you can compare the time of travel, routes and your carbon footprint when taking public transit versus driving. We hope this information will help you make environmentally smart decisions in planning your travel.

    Uncertain Location Page

    If the goroo Trip Planner is not able to exactly match your starting point or destination with a location in its database, you will see a page with the heading “Get Directions Results Page” You will be told which location was not completely recognized, and you’ll be asked to select from a list of possible options.

    To make your selection, select your choice by clicking on the radio button and click on the “Continue” button.

    If none of the choices reflect your location, use the browser’s “Back” button to return to the main Trip Planner page, and alter your entry. Be sure to check your spelling and verify that you have followed any tips mentioned in the sections above.

    If You Are Still Having Trouble Planning Your Trip

    To create a goroo Trip Planner itinerary over the phone, dial 836-7000 from any area code in our service area. If you are calling from outside the RTA service area, dial 312-836-7000.

    Road Trip Planner with Stops: Tools – Tips for a Perfect

    #planning a trip
    #

    Route

    The first step is the fun one: selecting the route. To do so, decide what s most important to you: distance, destination, or budget. Once you know this, you can begin researching and building out the rest of your plans.

    When in the planning stage, Roadtrippers  will be your best friend! Founded by two fellow wanderlusters, this web and mobile service provides a seemingly endless database of inspiration. Explore tested routes, or plan your own and discover the variety of interest points that can be found along your newly blazed trail.

    From culture to campsites and nature to nightclubs, Roadtrippers will help you plan a trip tailored to your travel style. It’ll also help you budget by providing cost estimates for the gas require for the selected trip.

    Make sure your route is broken down into doable driving segments both to and from your final destination. Your plan should also include a list of attractions you want to see along the way. The more you have on the list the better, but be prepared to skip a few. You never know what will happen on the open road. Being flexible is key.

    Lodging 

    Once you know where you’re going, you’ll need to decide where to stay.

    If your road trip is all about the great outdoors and you plan on camping, visit recreation.gov to find and book campsites on your route.

    Prefer more modern accommodations? Priceline. Hotels.com. Hotwire. Expedia. or any one of your preferred hotel booking sites can help you book a hotel at each check point along your route.

    Or, check out AirBnb for a more unique lodging selection.

    Appify

    You’ve heard it, you’ve probably said it, and we all know it’s true: “there’s an app for everything.” And as a matter of fact, there’s quite a few to aid in your road trip success. Here are the ones we suggest downloading before you go:

    TripIt . Yeah, so this might be a shameless plug, but we can actually help! You’ve already selected and booked your lodging and attractions, so let us automagically create an itinerary for you. That way you can find all your plans in one place and you won’t have to dig through all your email to find times, locations, and confirmation numbers. TripIt will also automatically generate the best route between stops with turn by turn driving directions and Google Maps. It s perfect if you re looking for a road trip planner with stops.  

    Along The Way : Whether you’re in need of a bathroom, caffeine fix, retail therapy, or just about anything else, Along The Way can help you locate whatever you’re looking for without getting off track.  

    Gasbuddy : Unfortunately, you’ll have to frequent the gas stations on your road trip, which makes this app essential. Gasbuddy provides a crowd-sourced list of gas prices to help you find the best deal near you.  

    Spotify : Every road trip needs good jams and lots of them! Although the free version of this service is awesome, it’ll definitely be worth your money to upgrade to premium for your road trip. For just $9.99 a month you have access to any song at anytime … even when you re offline.  

    AAA : Although we suggest you check out your car before leaving, you never know what can happen out there on the road. With this app, you can contact roadside assistance and help them locate you. You can also discover AAA discount locations, Diamond-rated hotels, restaurants, and attractions.  

    Wi-Fi Finder : Whether you need to post to Facebook, Facetime mom, or email your boss, Wi-Fi Finder will help you stay connected by locating both free and paid Wi-Fi spots.

    Documentation

    On your road trip you’re going to see some breathtaking sights and make some incredible memories, so documentation will be key.

    If you’re into the visuals, snapping pics on your phone is a must. Step up your editing game with VSCO Cam ; this will help your pictures come to life and look at least half as beautiful as in real life. Then your photo will be ready to share on Instagram. Also, don’t forget to tag your pictures with #TripItPic to share your travels and have a chance to be featured on our page .

    For your videos, you can use Magisto to automatically create and edit amazing videos, complete with music and effects.

    Evernote is yet another great documentation tool. Write down everything you love and learn along the way, and add photos to create the ultimate travel journal.

    Any other road trip tips? Share them below! Happy travels!

    Planning a Trip to Europe: Your 10-Step Guide

    5. Book your airfare.

    Because airfare will probably be the most expensive part of your trip, you’ll want to book it before anything else (car rental, hotel, etc.). This will allow you to be more flexible with your dates, which is a great way to save money on your flight. You can also spend less by flying on international discount airlines like Aer Lingus.

    Enliven your trip with a layover in a different country. Many airlines, such as Air France, offer occasional free layover promotions. Stop by the Schiphol Airport for a day on the way to Paris and take the train into Amsterdam to see the Van Gogh Museum or the Anne Frank House.

    For more information:

    6. Book your accommodations.

    It’s time to go back to that rough itinerary you jotted down and fill in some places to sleep. As is the case with pretty much everything you book for your trip, the earlier you make arrangements, the better — especially during high season.

    Sure, you can just book a room at the local Hilton and be done with it. But do a bit of research and you could discover some funky lodging that’s almost as exciting as the attractions you plan to visit. Keep your eyes open for historic castles, tiny bed and breakfasts, houseboats, eco-friendly hotels or organic farms. Budget travelers take note: Vacation rentals, homestays, farmstays and house-swapping are accommodation options that can be shockingly affordable. or even free.

    For more information:

    7. Consider travel insurance.

    There are several kinds of travel insurance: trip cancellation insurance, flight cancellation insurance, medical insurance, etc. The best time to buy insurance is right after you put down the major deposits on your trip, whether that entails airfare, a package or prepaid hotels. Once you know how much money you’ve paid up front, you can insure your trip if you so choose. Many airlines and travel providers sell insurance that you can purchase along with your flight or tour package. Always, always read the fine print in your policy and compare it with other travel insurance policies before you make a purchase.

    Check your medical insurance coverage to see if you’re covered overseas. If not, you may want to purchase supplemental medical insurance to cover situations like the cost of transportation back home for emergency care.

    For more information:

    8. Book local transportation.

    When in Rome, ride the Metropolitana. Find out how the locals get around the destination to which you’re traveling, and act accordingly. You won’t need a car rental in places like bike-friendly Amsterdam or London with its convenient underground Tube, unless you plan to go outside the city.

    A car rental is your best bet if you’re traveling to locales that can’t be easily reached by rail or plane (such as the Irish countryside). Be mentally prepared to drive in a foreign country, which can be a frightening experience when faced with incomprehensible traffic signs, narrow streets or sheep roadblocks.

    To get from city to city or country to country, examine your rail options in comparison to routes and prices offered by European discount airlines like easyJet or Ryanair. Travelers embarking on extensive travel within Europe may save money by purchasing a rail pass that permits unlimited train travel within a specified region.

    For more information:

    9. Tackle last-minute logistics.

    A few weeks before your departure date is the right time to start taking care of a number of key logistics: money, phone, house-sitter, pet-sitter.

    Call your credit card companies to let them know you’ll be traveling abroad. While you’re at it, find out if you’re going to be charged a fee for using your card overseas. Research the locations of ATM’s in your destination, especially if you’ll be relying on cash.

    Does your cell phone plan or equipment allow you to make calls overseas? If not, your phone options include purchasing an international cell phone, renting a cell phone or getting an international calling plan (if you have the right kind of phone). While you may be tempted to leave the phone at home and really “get away from it all,” it’s smart to have an emergency phone with you if you’ll be traveling by car, or hiking or biking long distances.

    For more information:

    10. Pack.

    Instead of packing the day before your trip, start thinking about what you’ll need to bring at least a week before you leave. For one, if your destination of choice is suddenly experiencing abnormal weather, you may need that extra time to go shopping for something like a packable rain coat. Plus, experienced travelers know that the chance of forgetting something essential increases the longer one puts off packing. (It’s only a matter of time until a scientific study confirms this.) About a week before departure day, check the weather, put together a packing list, and take a look at your suitcase to make sure its wheels work and everything’s going to fit.

    Planning a Trip to Europe: Your 10-Step Guide

    Before you can experience authentic Spanish tapas, piazzas in Rome or rooftop terraces in Prague. an important to-do list stands between you and your European vacation. The logistics involved in planning a Europe trip may seem tedious or overwhelming, but the more prepared you are, the greater your chances of a successful trip that lives up to your expectations. That’s why it’s important to do a bang-up job creating an itinerary, arranging transportation and tackling the brass tacks before you’re off to the Continent.

    The following simple steps will help you engineer a well-planned escape to Europe — so you can spend less time worrying about your travel arrangements and more time staring at pictures of castles and men in kilts.

    1. Get your documents in order.

    If you don’t have a passport, it will take four to six weeks from the time of application for you to receive one. Expedited services will trim the process down to two or three weeks, but it will cost you an additional $60, so it’s best to take care of this well before your trip. Already have a passport? Check its expiration date. The last thing you need is to find out your passport has expired while you’re in line at airport check-in.

    All car rental companies require drivers to have valid licenses in their home country, so you’ll also want to check the expiration date of your license. Some car rental companies also require an international driving permit for European rentals in addition to a valid driver’s license. For U.S. citizens, these can be obtained through the American Auto Association (AAA).

    U.S. travelers to Russia must have valid visas in addition to passports; obtaining one is a complicated process that can take weeks even after you have been approved — so start early.

    For more information:

    2. Establish a budget.

    It’s important to establish a budget as early as possible — even before you know your destination, travel dates or itinerary. Some destinations are generally cheaper than others, but there are ways to save everywhere: travel in the off-season, pick budget accommodations, plan a shorter trip. For example, London is an expensive city with an unfavorable exchange rate for Americans, but many travel providers and airlines offer affordable vacation packages to the city, and it’s not hard to find cheap air deals to London, especially during the winter.

    Set your budget early on, and you’ll avoid any disappointment that could come from forging a fabulous itinerary, like two weeks in Geneva during summer, and then discovering you can’t afford it.

    For more information:

    3. Pick a destination.

    Now that you know how much you can spend, where do you want to go? If you’re like many travelers (including the staff at IndependentTraveler.com) and you have a humongous list of places in Europe you want to visit, this could be tricky. Some tips:

  • Pick a particular site that’s on your must-see travel list, and plan your vacation around that. Last year I planned a trip to Ireland centered on an excursion to remote Skellig Michael Island, a World Heritage Site I’d dreamed of visiting. The excursion turned into an unforgettable two-week Emerald Isle road trip.

  • Pick someplace timely. Visit countries’ tourism Web sites and search for seasonal events like festivals or local holidays (which you may want to either avoid or join, depending on how you feel about crowds). Don’t forget to check the weather before you decide on your destination.

    For more information:

    4. Create a rough itinerary.

    So you want to go to France. eh? Don’t go ahead and buy a roundtrip flight to Paris and a hotel room — at least, not yet. You’ll want to sketch out a day-by-day itinerary of your perfect trip to France before you book a thing. Research sites and cities you really want to explore, and then figure out which ones you have the time and budget to get to.

    Check out alternative ways to travel in Europe. If you want to see multiple countries or cities but are on a tight budget, you may want to consider a cruise (exchange rates are naught for U.S. citizens onboard American ships). Walking tours, bike tours, camping and adventure tours are other interesting options worth considering.

    One Way Trip Travel Insurance

    One Way Trip Travel Insurance

    One Way Trip Travel Insurance covers you for an unlimited amount of time before you arrive at your final destination, if you have decided to emigrate to a new country or return to your country of origin.

    JS Travel Insurance can provide cover if you wish to stop off somewhere else on the way to your destination country.

    The Travel Insurance cover ends as soon as you reach your final destination.

    There is No Age Limit restriction and we can provide cover for pre-existing medical conditions as well.

    To get a quote by telephone, contact us on 0800 047 5065 (FREE) or 01273 773 017 or by email:

    Popular countries for Emigration include:

    There are many different types of Visas available to suit the amount of time you want to spend away and the activities you will be doing. These include:

    • Working Visa
    • Holiday Visa
    • Working-travelling Visa

    If you have a job offer in another country, then you can apply for a Working Visa. The means you will be allowed to enter and stay in another country on the condition that you have a firm job offer and you remain employed in that position.

    Usually if you wanted to change jobs, your new employer would have to go through a thorough interview process to ensure that there were no native workers more suited to the position and confirm this with the immigration authorities.

    A Holiday Visa means you can go away to another country for long periods of time without having to have a job waiting for you. This is often a popular choice for gap year students who wish to spend a significant amount of time travelling round a particular country such as Australia and Thailand.

    A Working Travelling Visa combines both of the above. This is for people who wish to spend time in another country, aim to do some travelling but would also like to be able to work. You do not need a job offer to apply for this type of visa, but you are allowed to apply for work once you have arrived.

    Visa applications for countries such as Canada, Australia, South Africa and New Zealand will usually require the following:

    • Proof of address
    • Copy of passport
    • Police certificate
    • Proof of funds
    • Medical declaration

    Some countries such as the USA will require you to attend a face to face interview at the US embassy to assess your suitability.

    Learn How Trip Cancellation Insurance Works 888-407-3854 #sherman #travel

    #travel insurance comparisons
    #

    How Does Trip Cancellation Travel Insurance Work?

    Trip Cancellation Insurance gives you the money you lose if you can t go or are forced to cut your trip, cruise or tour short by unforeseen losses.

    What does Unforeseen mean?

    Unforeseen means: Losses that result from sudden events. Travel insurance for trips and cruises does not cover conditions or events that, on the date of purchase, are known. If what is known causes a claim. your claim will not be paid. It s like wanting to buy Fire Insurance when your house is on fire. Read: Do Callers Think We Were Born Yesterday? or Gina Didn t Need Trip Insurance Until Now

    This is very important when you want Pre-Existing Medical Condition coverage. That s because a travel insurance claim will likely be denied if there s not a turn for the worse . In other words, if the person with the pre-existing condition has already had a turn for the worse prior to you buying your travel insurance, there won t be any coverage.

    This is important: The Trip Cancellation coverage begins at 12:01 a.m. on the day after the date the policy is purchased. All other coverages begin when you leave home for your trip when your departure date is in the future.

    How Travel, Trip, Cruise Cancellation Insurance Helps You:

    • Trip Cancellation Insurance coverage:

    You, a close family member or a travelling companion gets hurt or sick before you leave (your doctor must see you in person and say you can t travel). Travel Insurance reimburses you the money you lose. This can include pre-existing medical conditions. Other events that could cause you to cancel your trip are: Your travel supplier unexpectedly ceases operation. you are laid off. you re required to work, terrorism at your destination. bad weather, hurricanes. natural disasters or unexpected jury duty.

  • Trip Interruption Insurance coverage:
    You, a close family member or a travelling companion gets hurt or sick during your trip and you have to return home early. Before the trip it s trip cancellation. During the trip it s trip interruption. Our plans reimburse you the unused value of your trip plus pays the cost of one-way airfare up to the plan s limit.
  • Emergency Medical Evacuation Insurance coverage:
    You get hurt (ie hit by a cement truck) or sick on your trip. Travel Insurance reimburses you your medical expenses including emergency medical transportation. Did you know that Medicare doesn t cover you outside the USA ?
  • A Trip Delay forces you to have extra accommodation expenses
  • Your luggage is delayed, lost, stolen or damaged. If your checked luggage doesn t arrive within 12 or 24 hours after you do, you can be reimbursed for items you need to buy. Or if it s damaged or never arrives, you can be covered.
  • Or you can get a Cancel For Any Reason plan to cover any possible reason to cancel your trip including: you change your mind, you re afraid to travel, you just don t want to go.
