5 Easy Ways To Cut Your Household Expenses

Are you shocked when seeing your household expenditures every month? The expenses seem to increase every month. If you are in this situation, try these 5 recommendations before your extra paid money will accumulate to a significant amount!

1. Recycle those junk letters. Each month, you will probably received a dozen or more letters from direct mailing companies in your mailbox. Some of these letters are printed on one side only. Collect these letters and combined them into a writing pad. You can also used them to print draft documents. Besides saving money, you are also saving a lot of trees.

2. Install water saving kit in your toilet cistern. When flushing the toilet, the amount of water used is usually more than is required. By installing a water saving kit in the cistern, the amount of water saved can be as much as three gallons per month.

3. Use the fan Whenever possible, use the fan. The air conditioner is a major contributor to your utility bill. By using the fan, not only are you saving on your utility bill, you are also building up your body’s tolerance to heat. Your chances of getting heat exhaustion or heat stroke during the hot summer season are greatly reduced.

4. Do not throw away that old bar of soap yet. As your wash your hands with soap on a daily basis, the bar will become smaller and smaller until it is almost unusable. Instead of throwing it away, simply stick the old bar of soap onto the new one. Just make sure both of them are wet when sticking them together.

5. Cut the tube of toothpaste into half. When you can no longer squeeze out any toothpaste from the tube, just cut it in-half. There is some more toothpaste left that can last you for a couple of days if you have a large family. If you live alone or with your spouse only, the extra toothpaste can last up to five days or even more.

Start cultivating these useful habits today and make them a part of your daily life. You will be pleasantly pleased when you notice your household expense start to decline bit by bit as time goes on.

Travel Agents – know your rights – Consumer NZ #flight #and

#travel agents nz
#

Travel agents

What are your rights if something goes wrong with the holiday you booked through a travel agent?

When you book a plane ticket or a hotel room, your contract is with the airline or hotel. The travel agent who handles the bookings has the job of arranging the contract.

But travel agents remain responsible for their own work, and must carry it out according to the standard of “reasonable care and skill” required by the Consumer Guarantees Act. The Fair Trading Act also applies. They cannot mislead you. But other problems can arise.

When you book

Make sure your agent knows your requirements. If you have special needs, put them in writing and keep a copy for yourself. If you amend your plans, let the agent know in writing.

Be sure to read all the small print on brochures and always ask about the booking conditions before you sign anything or hand over money. Check all your documents as soon as you get them.

Make sure you have suitable travel insurance.

If things go wrong

If you’re away, contact the nearest representative of the tour operator and give them the opportunity to rectify the situation at the time. If you’re not satisfied, let them know, and follow it up when you get home.

Make notes about any problems you want to take up and, if it’s appropriate, take photos and get the contact details of others who will support your case. Keep receipts and any documentation that will help with a claim for compensation.

When you complain

Write to the agent, wholesaler or tourist operator directly and give then the opportunity to put things right. Include copies of all relevant receipts and other documents.

If you think you are due compensation, add up how much the problem cost you in real terms and estimate the value of lost opportunities.

If you cannot reach a settlement with the company, write to TAANZ. It doesn’t pay compensation, but it may reprimand the agent if there has been a breach of its code of ethics or rules.

If the company still won’t pay, take your case to a Disputes Tribunal. This is relatively cheap and there are no lawyers involved.

Tricky questions

You paid in advance for a once-in-a-lifetime adventure in Patagonia, but the airline never got the money and now the agent has gone out of business. Can you get your money back?

TAANZ will pay up to $250,000 for unticketed bookings if a member agency goes bust.

Yes, if you booked with a bonded member of the Travel Agents Association of New Zealand (TAANZ). But probably not, if your agent is not bonded.

TAANZ will pay up to $250,000 for unticketed bookings if a member agency goes bust. This would cover all or most outstanding ticket monies. But note that TAANZ won’t pay for bad service. Some agents have their own bond schemes, but most belong to the TAANZ system.

With an unbonded agent, you will have to stand in line as an unsecured creditor, and you’ll be lucky to see any of your money at all.

You have booked and paid the deposit on a holiday package to Belfast. But now the agent says it’s wonderful what peace will do for a country’s tourism, and wouldn’t you know it, the price has gone up. Do you have to pay the extra?

Probably. When you paid the deposit you formed a contract with the wholesaler or tour company, and this will have included your acceptance of the booking conditions. Most agents and wholesalers reserve the right in their conditions to pass on price increases.

But they must give you the chance to read the conditions before you sign. If they don’t make you aware of them, or lead you to think there will be no price increase and then charge you one, they are at fault. You shouldn’t have to pay the extra.

At the end of a very tiring week in Beijing you arrive at the airport and, even though you phoned to reconfirm your flight as required, you discover you’ve been “bumped”. There’s no seat for you. What can you do?

This has nothing to do with your travel agent. Airlines know some travellers won’t turn up so they often overbook planes. It’s their responsibility and there are international agreements set in place as to what they must do for you. In this case they should make arrangements for further flights, accommodate you and compensate you for any losses you incur.

You probably won’t get anything if the delay is short, but if that missed Beijing flight means you miss the Hong Kong connection to Auckland as well, the airline will have to sort it out.

You’re going to treat yourself to a week in the sun in New Caledonia, but right after you pay the deposit, your car dies. You need a car; you don’t need the holiday. Can you get your money back?

It depends on your contract. Most specify there will be a cancellation fee and how much it will be. Very often you will lose all your deposit. Some contracts are so tough, if you cancel close to your departure date you will lose most of what you have paid for the fare.

Always check the contract before you book. Your travel agent should point out the cancellation details to you at the time of booking and suggest travel insurance if appropriate.

Your hotel bookings in London’s West End are confirmed, but when you arrive with your voucher the proprietor says the hotel is full. He sends you to another he owns near Battersea. It’s still London, but it’s nowhere near the theatres and restaurants you had so wanted to be close to. What can you do?

Again, this is not your agent’s fault. You will have to do your fighting with the hotel or, if the accommodation is part of a tour package, with the wholesaler who runs the package. Check the booking conditions of your tour as some reserve the right to change accommodation and tour details as necessary.

You have prepaid your ferry ticket to your Greek island resort but when you arrive at the ferry you discover you have no voucher for it. You haven’t misplaced it, the agent didn’t give you one. What can you do?

You’ll have to pay again. But keep the receipt and claim the fare back from your travel agent when you get home.

You book a holiday in Thailand intending to go diving. You made your intentions very clear to the agent, to the point of asking about the hire of diving gear. But when you arrive you discover it is the monsoon season, there are no dive trips running and that this is normal for this time of the year.

If you have made your intentions clear to the agent, they have not performed their job with reasonable skill and care. Nor have they provided you with a holiday that was “fit for its purpose”. You can claim compensation. But if they advised you against the trip and you ignored this, the responsibility is yours.

You want to take the family to Vanuatu, and ask the agent to check whether childcare is available. In your presence he rings the wholesaler, who says it is always available. But when get there, you discover the childcare programme only runs in the peak season. This is not the peak season. Who is responsible?

The wholesaler. You should try for compensation.

You have booked and prepaid a rental car in France. When you turn up, you are met with a wall of Gallic shrugs. The company, it seems, has gone bust. What can you do?

Call your travel insurer. If the car-hire firm went out of business after you confirmed your arrangements, they should compensate you for alternative arrangements and may even make them for you.

If your agent booked you with a company that was already out of business, it will have to pick up the tab.

The agent tells you your departure tax has been included in the cost of your air ticket. But your ticket doesn’t show this and the friendly but very firm staff at the airport insist you pay again. What can you do?

Pay, or they won’t let you on the plane. Make sure you keep your receipt and claim from the agent when you return.

You thought travel agents worked for the airlines and hotels. So how come they want to charge you a fee?

Travel agents are paid on commission by the companies selling travel and accommodation. But many of those commissions have fallen recently, and some agents are making up for this by charging customers directly.

This changes their legal responsibility. If you pay for advice, for bookings to be made or tickets issued, the agent will have more direct liability if something goes wrong.

You asked a travel agent to get you to Europe and it turns out the best deal involves a stopover in China. When you get there you are not allowed in the country because you don’t have a visa. Shouldn’t the travel agent have sorted this?

You should always double-check that you have the right visa to enter, travel and/or work in the country you are headed to. This is primarily your responsibility. However, if you asked the agent to specifically sort this out for you, then make a claim for compensation from the agent.

Should Your Kid Take a Gap Year Before Going to College?

The Walking Dead. Did the Midseason Finale Satisfy?

Why Your High School Senior Should Take a Gap Year

Jekaterina Nikitina—Getty Images/Flickr Select

The growing trend of taking a year off between high school and college can be a benefit if done right

Earlier this month, more than a million high school seniors across the country committed to attend college. But a growing number of them aren t going to set foot on campus in the fall, electing instead for a gap year a trend that is leaving some parents feeling anxious and uncertain.

Many educators tout taking a gap year, saying that kids who step off the academic treadmill after high school to work, travel, volunteer or explore other interests are more mature when they arrive at college and more engaged in their education going forward.

With this in mind, a handful of colleges Princeton and the University of North Carolina. among them offer scholarships and fellowships to incoming freshmen who take a gap year. Harvard has long encouraged the practice. And in February, Tufts University launched its 1+4 bridge program, which, starting in fall 2015, will offer gap-year opportunities for national and international service regardless of a student s ability to pay. Meanwhile, organizations that promote a gap year, including the American Gap Association and USA Gap Fairs. are expanding rapidly.

Still, the idea of a gap year can be frightening for parents especially for those who have carefully cultivated a cradle-to-college track for their children. Many fear that once their son or daughter veers away from a formal education, they won t go back.

As parents this is not what you expect, says Abbe Levin, whose 18-year-old son, Jules Arsenault, attends a small college-preparatory school in Bethel, Maine. When you have a kid who is not showing interest, or even curiosity about college, that is a tough place to be.

In the end, though, Levin and her husband came around to accept Jules s decision to take a gap year and, in so doing, they wound up following three guidelines that experts say are crucial to ensuring a successful experience.

First, they had Jules apply to college and then defer enrollment so that he knows he has something solid waiting for him at the end of his hiatus. For him, that s a spot at Roosevelt University in Chicago.

Second, they ve made sure that Jules has a structured plan and isn t just sitting on the couch, playing video games and thinking about what he ll do next. And third, they ve made sure that he has skin in the game, helping to fund his own gap-year plans.

Formal gap year programs can cost as much as $30,000. But there are many low-cost options, including volunteering for a program such as AmeriCorps. City Year or WWOOF-USA. all of which pay for room and board. Other kids work for a while in order to fund a six-month gap-year program or travel abroad.

This is exactly what Jules is doing. Starting next month, he ll be washing dishes on Monhegan Island in Maine, a tourist destination a boat ride away from his hometown of Boothbay. He ll work through early October before traveling to Southeast Asia.

At first I wanted a year off because I thought it was going to fun, Jules says. But now I realize that it will give me time to figure out what I want to do. I didn t want to go to college and not know what I want to study, or get a degree just to have one. With what college costs these days, I wanted to get a degree in something that would be useful to me.

Levin credits Jules s high school college counselor for reminding her that every kid has their own timeline, and for encouraging her to let Jules take the lead. She also bluntly told Levin that if she pushed her son to head straight to college, it could backfire.

As parents we raise our kids to think for themselves, to be creative, to follow their own path, Levin says. But then suddenly, starting in their junior year, we are asking them to go along this very prescribed path that might not be right for them. Now I feel like when he does go to college, he ll really be ready.

Studies suggest that Levin is right. Robert Clagett, who served as a senior admissions officer at Harvard and is also the former dean of admissions at Middlebury College, has found that those who delay a year before starting college have GPAs that, on a 4.0 scale, are 0.15 to 0.2 higher than otherwise would be expected.

What we saw was startling, says Clagett, now the director of college counseling at St. Stephens Episcopal, a college preparatory school in Austin, Texas. The prevailing wisdom is that kids are going to lose their hard-earned study skills if they take a gap year. The opposite is true.

While taking a gap year is not right for everyone, Clagett believes that many college-bound kids could benefit from taking time off particularly those who are burnt out from years of piling on honors and AP classes, tutors, test prep, community-service projects, varsity sports, piano lessons and other extracurricular activities.

A gap year is a chance for kids to take a breath and do something that doesn t require them to ask, How will this look on my college application? he says. To just do something for the pure love of doing it.

Corinne Monaco, 23, was certainly ready to take a breath after she graduated in 2009 from ICE Institute for Collaborative Education, an academically rigorous public school in New York.

I was always one of those kids who liked school and was looking forward to going to college, Monaco says. But by the end of second semester senior year it became clear that I needed a break. I was exhausted. I didn t have the energy to dive right back into school.

Monaco worked part-time for the better part of a year for an environmental education, arts and advocacy organization. She then spent a few months traveling across the country.

When she finally got to college, she was genuinely excited to be back in the classroom again. Says Monaco, who will graduate on Saturday from Pitzer College with a dual degree in art and environmental analysis: Taking a gap year was the best decision I ever made.

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.

    Cancel For Any Reason, Change Your Mind Travel Insurance #vegas #travel

    #

    Cancel For Any Reason Travel Insurance Plans

    The Cancel For Any Reason is just that cancelling your entire trip for a reason that is normally not covered (e.g. changing your mind). It s not Delay For Any Reason nor Interrupt For Any Reason .

    Read Steve s helpful Blog post called Cancel Your Plane Ticket Or Pay The Change Fee? to learn how to correctly cancel your plane ticket so your Cancel For Any Reason coverage reimburses you for your airfare .

    Here are some common trip cancellation reasons that aren t covered by Travel insurance as a standard reason, yet are covered by a Cancel For Any Reason Plan. Any of these events (and a lot more) are covered by a Cancel For Any Reason Plan:

    • You want to cancel your trip because you don t feel safe at your destination. With the rise of global terrorism, there are a lot of places in the world that were fine to visit, but now they can give you pause.
    • Along these lines, Civil Unrest and War aren t covered. If these things are happening at your destination, you probably won t want to go on your trip, either.
    • You just don t feel right about leaving. Maybe you just have a feeling it s not a good time to go on your trip. Ever had that feeling and you were glad you listened to it? I have: I was very close to my Paternal Grandparents. On August 29, 1997 I had a strong feeling I should, without delay, visit my Grandma who lived 200 miles away. I left immediately and had the best visit I ever had with her! Exactly 2 weeks later she died in her sleep. And, I was privileged to give the eulogy at her funeral.
    • You change your mind and don t want to go on your trip
    • You get a new job and your boss won t let you have the time off
    • Your adult children are idiots and their melodramas might cause you to cancel your trip
    • Your child or grandchild s team which is normally in last place is now in the State Championship Finals
    • Your already approved vacation comes at a bad time and you know it would be better if you didn t take your trip
    • Even though you and your significant other are madly in love , you still want to have a way out (maybe that plants a seed of discord?). More on this below .

    Here Are The Purchase Deadlines:

    • The CSA Freestyle Luxe deadline is no later than 24 hours after your initial trip payment
    • The Travel Guard Gold s Travel Guard Platinum s deadline is no later than 14 days after the date you made your initial trip payment
    • The MH Ross Complete plan s deadline is no later than 15 days after the date you made your initial trip payment
    • The Travel Insured Plus and plans deadlines are no later than 21 days after the date you made your initial trip payment
    • The Travelex Max plan s deadline is no later than 30 days after the date you made your initial trip payment

    All plans require:

    1. You insure 100% of your expected prepaid trip costs that would be non-refundable if you got hit by a cement truck on the day you were leaving for your trip and had to cancel at the last minute. Note this exception. The MH Ross Complete and TravelSafe Classic Plus plans allow you to insure the full prepaid cost of any specific travel arrangement without having to insure the full value of all your travel arrangements. For example, if you are flying to a cruise and you select Air / Cruise as your Type of Trip on the purchase application, you have to insure 100% of the cost of the airfare and the cruise to have CFAR coverage on the air and cruise. If you just insure the cruise, but not the full prepaid cost of the airfare you won t have CFAR on the air and cruise.;
    2. You also insure within 14 30 days (depending on the plan) of the payment for those arrangements including the cost of any subsequent arrangements (or any other subsequent arrangements not made through your travel agent) added to your Trip; and
    3. You are not disabled from travel at the time you pay your premium and
    4. You cancel your Trip more than two days (MH Ross, Travelex Max TravelSafe) or forty-eight hours (CSA, Travel Guard Travel Insured) prior to Your Scheduled Departure Date. Tip: 48 hours does not equal 2 calendar days. Click here to see why not .

    Important: There will be no coverage available under the Optional Cancel For Any Reason Benefit, if purchased if you insure an amount less than your total prepaid trip costs that are subject to any scheduled penalty on your Departure Date.

    This is handy to know: I use the term scheduled penalty below. A scheduled penalty is the total amount of money you d lose at the time you cancel your trip. Cruises Tours typically have a penalty schedule. And if you have a non-refundable airline ticket the entire cost will be the penalty because technically you can t get any of your money back if you cancel your trip.

    Here s a big drawback (besides the price the fact you don t get a 100% refund) in the Cancel For Any Reason coverage:

    A trip cancellation claim that is paid under the Cancel For Any Reason coverage means that any benefit you would get from cancelling your trip for a covered reason is lost. For example:

    • 2 people (significant others) are sharing a cabin on a cruise
    • Even though they are madly in love they still get Cancel For Any Reason coverage (maybe that plants a seed of discord?)
    • They have a falling out and one of them cancels their trip using their Cancel For Any Reason benefit
    • The other person does not receive the benefit (as in getting any money from the claim) of the additional cost incurred during the Covered Trip as a result of a change in the per person occupancy rate (single supplement ).

    If you carefully examine this policy wording, you ll see what I mean: (italics mine)

    The Company will reimburse You, up to the maximum shown on the Confirmation of Coverage for Trip Cancellation, for the additional cost incurred during the Covered Trip as a result of a change in the per person occupancy rate for prepaid travel arrangements if a person booked to share accommodations with You has his/her Covered Trip delayed, canceled, or interrupted for a covered reason and You do not cancel.

    The reason the traveler still going on the trip doesn t get their single supplement costs paid in a claim is because the Cancel For Any Reason coverage allows a person to cancel for a not-covered reason .

    Here s how much these plans reimburse you if you use the Cancel For Any Reason benefit:

    Getting Travel Insurance for Your Next Trip

    By Nancy Parode. Senior Travel Expert

    Nancy Parode’s travel and cultural articles have appeared in print magazines, such as Military Spouse and Northern Virginia. and on several websites, including Sixty and Me, IntoWine.com, The World I Online and NotForTourists.com. Nancy also blogged about military life for HometownAnnapolis.com, the website of Annapolis, Maryland’s The Capital newspaper. Tripping.com named Nancy’s Senior Travel blog here at About.com a Top Travel Blog in the Senior Travel category, and About.com’s Senior Travel website made Discover Corps ‘ list of Best Baby Boomer Travel Sites for 2105.

    Nancy has been featured on NPR affiliate WRVO Public Media’s “Take Care” radio show and BlogTalkRadio’s “Transformed Travel” show. She has been interviewed by The New York Times’ Frugal Travel writer Seth Kugel, SixtyandMe.com’s Margaret Manning, The Amateur Traveler’s Chris Christensen and consumer advocate Christopher Elliott.

    Consider these situations:

    • You fall and break your leg while visiting Croatia. You must fly home, yet cannot bend your left knee.
    • Two days before you are due to fly to New Zealand, you come down with this year’s strain of influenza.
    • Your cruise ship cannot leave on time because a hurricane is bearing down on your departure city.

    If you buy the right kind of travel insurance before your trip starts, you can recover the cost of your canceled trip or the extra expense of flying home while disabled.

    Continue Reading Below

    Consider purchasing travel insurance to prevent unexpected problems from ruining your dream vacation.

    Although some travel experts and even Consumer Reports claim that travel insurance isn’t worth the money, seniors should research this issue carefully for several reasons:

    • If your only medical insurance is Medicare or Medicaid and you plan to travel to another country, consider purchasing travel insurance. Medicare only pays for expenses incurred within the United States. If you should get sick or become injured while abroad, you will be expected to pay for your medical care up front, and emergency medical evacuation costs thousands of dollars.
    • If you are insured through an HMO, check to see if you can get emergency medical care outside of the HMO’s service area, and find out if a deductible applies. Some HMO’s will not cover out-of-region or overseas medical expenses. Travel insurance could be a good way to temporarily add to your health coverage if your HMO’s service area is limited.
    • If you book a trip or cruise and must prepay, you may face a penalty from your tour agency or cruise line if you need to cancel your trip. This penalty may be more than the cost of trip cancellation insurance. If so, trip cancellation insurance could protect you from a larger loss.

    Continue Reading Below

    • If you travel often, consider an annual membership in an emergency evacuation program, such as MedJet. For a few hundred dollars per year, you’ll receive emergency medical transportation to your chosen hospital if you should get sick or sustain an injury.

    Shopping for travel insurance can be confusing. There are many types of travel insurance plans; some cover only a particular group of losses, while others are comprehensive policies.

    According to the U. S. Travel Insurance Association (UStiA), there are three basic kinds of travel insurance coverage:

    • Trip cancellation insurance. This type of policy covers the cost of your airfare and other prepaid expenses if you need to cancel your trip. Trip cancellation insurance will reimburse you if you cannot make your trip because you or a family member becomes ill or if weather problems prevent you from traveling. It will also reimburse you for lost luggage. Some policies also cover financial default of your travel supplier.
    • Emergency medical coverage. This pays for medical care and the cost of emergency return travel. This coverage is especially useful for seniors because it pays for medical expenses incurred outside of your home country.
    • 24-hour telephone assistance. This coverage provides travelers with an easy way to locate doctors and get emergency help, and is especially helpful if you plan to travel to an area where English is not a common language.

    How to Shop for Travel Insurance

    Here are some tips for choosing a travel insurance policy.

    • Purchase travel insurance through your travel agent. A good travel agency will have working relationships with reputable travel insurance providers and will offer various types of policies.
  • Call your regular insurance agent and ask if s/he sells travel insurance.
  • Contact the U. S. Travel Insurance Association, the Travel Health Insurance Association of Canada or a similar trade association in your home country. Ask for a list of travel insurance agents in your area. These professional associations also provide travel insurance information.
  • Ask around. If you participate in online discussion groups, such as AARP’s message boards, you can post a question about travel insurance and read about other travelers’ experiences. Discuss your travel plans with friends and ask if they have purchased travel insurance. Do some online research – for example, do a search on the name of a travel insurance company – to see if other travelers have reported problems.
  • Use an online insurance comparison site, such as InsureMyTrip.com. SquareMouth.com. or WorldTravelCenter.com to help you research coverage and costs.
  • Look for a policy that covers pre-existing conditions ; some don’t. Others will cover pre-existing conditions only if you purchase your policy within a specified time period after paying your trip deposit.
  • If you are taking a sports-related or adventure trip, look for a policy that covers sports-related injuries. Many travel insurance policies won’t pay for “high adventure” injuries.
  • Read the entire policy. Don t rely on someone else s description of coverage. If you don t understand what s covered and what s not, ask questions before you buy.
  • While travel insurance isn’t cheap – it can add up to as much as ten percent of your total trip cost – it can give you peace of mind and provide financial assistance if the worst should happen.

    Yapta Alerts You to a Cheaper Airfare in Time to Rebook

    Even After Cancellation Fees, Travelers Say They Save by Buying a New Ticket at a Lower Price

    Updated Aug. 29, 2014 1:04 p.m. ET

    Searching for a Labor Day weekend plane ticket home for my daughter, I saw an attractive $432 fare on American Airlines. I sent her the details and she responded within 90 minutes.

    Airfares bounce up and down, often frustrating and angering travelers. But can you get a better price after you buy? WSJ s Middle Seat columnist Scott McCartney joins Lunch Break with Tanya Rivero with the answer. Photo: Getty

    Yapta, which began tracking airfares in 2007, has turned its fare-searching technology into a corporate tool to hunt for lower fares and hotel room rates after trips are booked. It’s available to consumers at yapta.com.

    Whenever a price drops in the first 24 hours after purchase, or when it drops more than the cost of the airline’s change fee, Yapta sends you an alert and you rebook at the lower price, paying the change fee and pocketing what’s left.

    Airlines, having created so much volatility in their own pricing, are offering ways to beat the bounces, too. Last week, British Airways announced it would offer a 72-hour price hold for a flat fee of $10—useful if you see a good price but aren’t ready to commit to a nonrefundable ticket. That’s similar to United Airlines’s FareLock, where you pay $5 to $20 and lock in a price for either 72 hours or seven days.

    (Read more from The Wall Street Journal: Five Things To Know Today .)

    You could combine the two in a strategy to make sure you are getting the best price possible. Put a fare on hold and put Yapta to work. If the price drops during the hold period, you’ll get an alert and you can jump on it.

    Yapta does what consumers or travel managers could do manually: It periodically rechecks the price of a ticket. Airlines don’t embrace the idea, and their pricy penalties for changing nonrefundable tickets limits how often travelers rebook. But neither have airlines put up a fight against Yapta. After all, they are the ones bouncing prices up and down.

    When you search for an airline ticket, you usually see one price for a particular trip on specific dates. Airlines, though, actually load as many as two dozen different prices into reservation systems. A number of seats are offered at the lowest price in each class of service, and when those seats sell, reservation computers automatically display the next higher price as the best available.

    Several times a day, airline pricing analysts and their computers can change the number of seats available at each price point, and they can change the prices themselves.

    Mix in actual purchases and you get a rapidly changing pricing vortex that can anger and frustrate shoppers. One minute you see a good price; the next minute it’s a whole lot higher.

    A lot happens between the time you buy and the time you fly,” says James Filsinger, Yapta’s chief executive of the Seattle-based company.

    Yapta says its research shows some cities are a lot more volatile for airline prices than others. Tickets leaving from San Francisco were the most volatile of 15 major airports for business travel, Yapta found, and departures from New York’s LaGuardia Airport were the least volatile. San Francisco is a hub for both United Airlines and Virgin America, providing lots of pricing competition. La Guardia, with limited takeoff and landing slots, historically has lacked low-fare competition.

    Started by a former airline pricing executive, Yapta now is run by Mr. Filsinger, a former executive at the reservation technology firm Sabre Group. Yapta takes fare data published by airlines and periodically tracks the lowest price available for a trip it is monitoring. So far working only on tickets sold in the U.S. Yapta says there are savings opportunities on 11.2% of all itineraries, after airline change fees.

    Most of the chances to get money back come within the void window” of the first 24 hours after purchase. Corporate travel departments typically get a full business day.

    When there were savings to be had, the average in a Yapta study of 150,000 itineraries booked from July through December 2013 was $306 after fees on tickets above $500, and $58 after fees on tickets under $500.

    The Transportation Department requires at least a 24-hour cancellation window for tickets sold in the U.S. as long as the reservation is more than seven days before departure.

    Most airlines charge the full price up front at the time of booking, but must give a full refund if canceled within 24 hours. (They don’t advertise that fact much.) American offers a 24-hour hold on reservations, without payment, instead of a refund in the 24-hour window.

    ENLARGE

    With corporate customers, Yapta loads its software into travel department booking systems. It doesn’t charge for the service but takes a cut of the savings, usually about 35%, Mr. Filsinger said. With consumers, use of the tracking tool is free. Companies, like consumers, can set a threshold on minimum savings before an alert is sent, to take into account change fees and other expenses. The company recently launched a similar system to check for falling hotel room prices, but so far that’s offered only to corporate travel departments and not consumers.

    The bigger the fare, the bigger the potential savings, so travel managers say they have seen their most eye-popping results on international business-class tickets.

    One Friday, Al Mazzola, director of travel services at Sykes Enterprises Inc. a Florida technology-consulting company, booked a $19,000 business-class ticket from Tampa to Shanghai and back, only to see it fall to $7,000 over the weekend. With the Yapta alert, the company grabbed the new price. I was stunned. I’ve never seen savings like that,” Mr. Mazzola said.

    Mr. Mazzola has been using Yapta for more than a year and said he has saved more than $125,000, even after Yapta’s percentage and airline change fees. He said probably 90% of the savings comes in the void period, the first full business day after purchase.

    Most of the price changes happen in the middle of the night, Mr. Mazzola says, and the new fares are usually still there when he gets to work around 7 a.m. on the East Coast.

    Travel agents can rebook via computer when an alert comes in. The traveler keeps the same seat and the same reservation code. Mr. Mazzola sends an email to company travelers saying, Congratulations, we found a lower fare for you.”

    Still, savings are too sporadic to justify booking a high-price ticket in the expectation that it will come down. The company tries always to book the lowest fare, he said.

    Similar to United’s FareLock, which Continental Airlines first offered in 2010 shortly before its merger with United, is British Airways’s 72-hour hold option. It can help you hang on to a price if it turns out to be the lowest offered. British Airways said it refunds the deposit—$10 for flights from the U.S. €10 from Europe and £10 from the United Kingdom—if the ticket purchase is made. Seats can only be held 21 days or longer before departure.

    The hold fee is offered through ba.com and includes code-sharing flights on partner airlines. A few destinations, including some in the Caribbean as well as Buenos Aires, Cairo, Lagos and some cities in India, aren’t available because of complex fluctuating tax calculations, British Airways said.

    United said FareLock fees are nonrefundable even if you buy the ticket and can be used only with United and United Express flights, not Star Alliance partners. FareLock can be used to hold frequent-flier award tickets.

    Corrections Amplifications

    An earlier version should have stated that American Airlines complies with Transportation Department rules by offering a 24-hour hold period on reservations for nonrefundable tickets, instead of a 24-hour refund window. (Aug. 29, 2014)

    Budget your way to success

    Budgeting sounds like a boring strategy used by our parents. For a long time, budgeting was considered the way to manage money because it helped people keep track of where their finances were going. But lots of people are choosing not to budget because it seems so needlessly complicated with little or not benefit. But there is a benefit to budgeting; the real trick is finding a budgeting method that works for you. Here is an excellent strategy to help you manage the money in your personal portfolio.

    The first thing you need to do is create a budget. Creating a budget does not have to be restrictive, but it should be a guideline to help you manage your income and your expenses each month. The first thing you want to do is list all your expenses on a month-to-month basis. The next thing you want to do it list all of your income on a month-to-month basis. Then compare. Many people who have trouble saving find that their expenses are very close to their income. So what can you do?

    One option you have is to reduce your expenses. This might mean going out with friends a little less or giving up on some luxury that you typically enjoy. Another option you have is to increase your income. Unfortunately, for many people, this is easier said than done.

    One way that you can reduce your expenses and increase your income is by using a debt consolidation loan. By consolidating many outstanding debts that are due throughout the month into a single loan with a single monthly payment you will be accomplishing several things.

    First, you will be reducing your monthly payment because you will be securing a larger loan and is spread out over a longer period of time. Second, you’ll be reducing the amount of interest you pay because you will be consolidating your many debts into one debt from one provider. Reducing your interest not only helps to reduce your expenses but also increases your income!

    And if you are able to find some assets that can help you get a secured loan, you’ll be able to spread out your payment over a longer period of time and you will likely qualify for a lower interest rate because you have some security to offer the lending institution to back up the loan.

    Now that you are actively pursuing a budget, you will need to find a way to continue to reduce your expenses over time. A secured loan will help you do that. But don’t forget that there are many ways you can also increase your income.

    Congratulations! You are assembling a budget and getting control of your finances and at the same time you are reducing your expenses and increasing your income.

    One option you have is to reduce your expenses. This might mean going out with friends a little less or giving up on some luxury that you typically enjoy. Another option you have is to increase your income. Unfortunately, for many people, this is easier said than done.

    One way that you can reduce your expenses and increase your income is by using a debt consolidation loan. By consolidating many outstanding debts that are due throughout the month into a single loan with a single monthly payment you will be accomplishing several things.

    First, you will be reducing your monthly payment because you will be securing a larger loan and is spread out over a longer period of time. Second, you’ll be reducing the amount of interest you pay because you will be consolidating your many debts into one debt from one provider. Reducing your interest not only helps to reduce your expenses but also increases your income!

    And if you are able to find some assets that can help you get a secured loan, you’ll be able to spread out your payment over a longer period of time and you will likely qualify for a lower interest rate because you have some security to offer the lending institution to back up the loan.

    Now that you are actively pursuing a budget, you will need to find a way to continue to reduce your expenses over time. A secured loan will help you do that. But don’t forget that there are many ways you can also increase your income.

    Congratulations! You are assembling a budget and getting control of your finances and at the same time you are reducing your expenses and increasing your income.

    The Best (And Cheapest) Airlines to Let Your Kid Fly Alone

    The Best (and Cheapest) Airlines to Let Your Kid Fly Alone On

    Posted on Feb 13, 2012

    It s never easy to let your kids go.

    Especially on their first solo flight. After all, who will make sure they’re safe, fed and not kicking the seat in front of them?

    With spring break right around the corner, you might be gearing up to send your kid off to visit Grandma alone for the first time, or to visit her preschool BFF who has since moved to a different state. That’s where airline unaccompanied minor programs come in. For a fee (usually around $100, and usually not covered by Frequent Flyer Miles or airline memberships), most airlines allow kids ages 5-14 to fly alone, with guaranteed supervision from the airplane staff.

    Different airlines impose additional guidelines, like stating that flyers younger than eight must fly non-stop, or that red-eye flights are forbidden for the pint-sized.

    Would You Let Your Kid Fly Alone?

    Have you ever let your child fly by herself before? How old was she? Were you happy with the result?

    We know you might have reservations when it comes to making this decision—and not just about the cost. We’ll help you figure out whether your kid is ready to fly alone, and when it s worth it to give him his wings.

    When Are They Ready?

    Age is, of course, relative, so we can t tell you that a child will be ready when she hits a certain birthday. Beth Blair, a mom, travel blogger  and former flight attendant, says that flying alone tends to be “harder on the parent than on the child. Once on the plane, children settle in with their books, electronics or other activities and enjoy the experience.”

    Here are some signs that your children may be mature enough to fly:

    • They re comfortable being alone for a few hours at a time.
    • They adapt well to unfamiliar situations.
    • They re self-sufficient, or willing to speak up if they need something.

    And a few that suggest it might be best to hold off:

    • They’ve never flown (even with you) before.
    • They don’t fly well when you are there.
    • They have trouble following directions and keeping track of their stuff.

    How the Costs Break Down

    Some airlines charge a single fee for two or more children from the same family to travel on the same itinerary. For example, Delta Airlines lets four kids ride on one extra fee … while Continental allows up to nine! Some airlines also include perks like snacks or waived fees on baggage for underage travelers, so ask in advance. If the airline does, make sure your little one knows to request it once he s on board.

    Although you might have a favorite airline for yourself, here s how the prices stack up—so you can decide whether it makes sense for Junior to be a chip off the old American Airlines block:

    The one rule your airline hates the most

    In 2012, the Transportation Department required air carriers to allow you to hold a reservation without payment or cancel a booking without penalty for 24 hours after your reservation, with some exceptions. (Photo: Scott Olson, Getty Images)

    If there’s one regulation that airlines hate more than anything, it’s the 24-hour rule.

    Can you blame them? In 2012, the Transportation Department required air carriers to allow you to hold a reservation without payment or cancel a booking without penalty for 24 hours after your reservation, with some exceptions.

    That allowed passengers to fix mistakes, such as a misspelled name or a wrong date. They could just cancel the ticket and rebook, as long as their departure date was more than a week away. But this government-mandated “out” clause probably also cost airlines millions in revenue.

    Now, regulators want to expand that rule to travel agencies, requiring that they also offer the same option for customers. A vast majority of agents already abide by the 24-hour rule, but a few travel retailers have discovered ways to weasel their way out.

    If history is any guide, this rule will be as tough to enforce as version one. Unscrupulous ticket sellers love to redefine “day” or add new policies of their own to make it difficult to invoke this controversial clause. The only way we’ll benefit from this proposed regulation, assuming it’s adopted, is if we remember it — and invoke it.

    Consider what happened to Shannon Harrell, a nursery school teacher who lives in Como, Italy. She paid $4,600 for round-trip tickets from Milan to Seattle this summer for her and her two sons. Within a few hours, she discovered a mistake. But when she tried to cancel the itinerary, a representative for eDreams, the European online agency she’d booked her tickets through, told her she was too late. The agency’s policy was only to refund the flight if canceled the same day, not within 24 hours.

    “I just can’t believe that there’s nothing I can do but lose that money,” she says.

    EDreams did not respond to questions about its refund rules.

    It’s not just online agencies. Another reader, Christina Conte, was fare-shopping on the British Airways website when she noticed a pop-up window that cheerfully announced it offered “free” cancellations, as long as they were made within four hours. If she caught the mistake after then, but before her 24 hours were up, British Airways would charge her a “small fee.”

    The Transportation Department has kept busy enforcing its 24-hour rule for airlines. Two summers ago, it fined EgyptAir $60,000 for violating rules requiring the disclosure of, among other things, the 24-hour rule. That September, it dinged Aeroflot with the same penalty, also for a 24-hour rule violation. Last May, the department issued an advisory reminding airlines that “carriers may not deceive consumers about the 24-hour reservation requirement.”

    Clearly, airlines want your tickets to be completely non-refundable from the moment you push the “buy” button. So do online travel agencies.

    No one knows how much money airlines were able to pocket because of a “no refunds” rule before 2012, but it’s likely that in the years since the DOT’s 24-hour rule went into effect, some ticketing agencies may have benefited by extracting a refund from an airline, then keeping a passenger’s money because of their own internal no-refunds policy.

    To keep your money, agencies and airlines occasionally come up with “creative new twists” that allow them to circumvent regulations, says Michal Ann Strahilevitz, a marketing professor at Golden Gate University. The most common tactic is to interpret 24 hours as a day, and to tell customers they have until the end of the next business day, even when they complete their reservation at 11 p.m. That would give customers less than 24 hours.

    “This is not the norm, and most good online travel agencies do honor the 24-hour rule exactly as it should be honored,” she says.

    Online travel agencies seem cool to the Transportation Department’s latest proposed set of consumer protections, and no matter how well-intentioned, they are unlikely to be met with their approval.

    In a perfect world, requesting that your travel agent refund an airline ticket within 24 hours shouldn’t be necessary. It’s not a perfect world.

    Make the 24-hour rule work for you

    Invoke the rule. The 24-hour rule is widely interpreted to apply to airline reservations, regardless of where they’re made. Remind your travel agency of the rule, and you’ll likely get a refund.

    Contact the DOT. File a complaint via the Transportation Department’s Aviation Consumer Protection Division: dot.gov/airconsumer/file-consumer-complaint. A letter from DOT is often enough to secure a refund, even when technically, you’re not entitled to one under the existing rule.

    Leave a comment on in support of the new rule. Click on regulations.gov and search for DOT-OST-2014-0056, then follow the directions.

    Planning for Your Thailand Vacation #cheap #flights #and #hotels

    Plan for Your Thailand Vacation

    By Suzanne Nam. Thailand Travel Expert

    Thailand is one of the most hassle-free countries in the region to travel to, but there are a few things to do before you arrive.

    Continue Reading Below

    Buy or borrow a guidebook before you set any plans in stone, and make sure to investigate some of Thailand’s underrated destinations, too.

    Book Flights

    With the large number of carriers and flights available, most people don’t make advance bookings for domestic air travel in Thailand. If you’re travel times are flexible and you’re going to very popular destinations like Phuket or Chiang Mai. you should be able to find flights even a day or two before you plan to travel. If you’re going somewhere with fewer flights like Sukhothai, Trat or Chiang Rai, buy your tickets well in advance as flights do sell out.

    And if you’re traveling in Thailand during a major holiday, book flights to any destination in advance. Keep in mind that tickets get more expensive the later you book. Even on discount carriers it’s not uncommon to pay half the price if you book a few weeks in advance.

    Book Accommodations

    If you already know the general area you want to stay in and it’s heavily touristed and densely packed with accommodations, like Khao San Road in Bangkok or Patong Beach in Phuket, it’s not too difficult to walk from hotel to hotel to find the one that’s right for you.

    Continue Reading Below

    But bear in mind that these days arriving without reservations usually doesn’t save money — even some small guest houses offer cheaper rates if you book ahead on the internet. Better to do the research, pick the area you want to stay in and make the reservation before you arrive. Wandering around with a backpack searching for a place to sleep sounds like fun but often ends up a miserable experience.

    Visit Your Doctor

    Thailand poses few health risks for visitors, but many doctors recommend a Hepatitis B vaccination and possibly other medications and immunizations depending on your general health and the regions you’ll be visiting.

    Thailand is like no other place in the world. Whether you’re coming from North America, Europe, Asia or Africa, most likely Thailand will seem very foreign and exotic when you arrive. Make the transition a little more comfortable (and get a little more out of it) by reading up a bit on the country’s history, religions, and etiquette.

    Hey guys. My husband and I are half way there. We recently got his EAD and SS card so I figured I would share our experiences thus far. Please ask us any questions you want because reading this site was a HUGE help for us.

    8/29/2015 – Mailed our AOS Packet to the Chicago Lockbox for packages requiring a signature

    For a month we received no news and no updates. We called USCIS and they said that was completely normal not to have any updates in this period and for us to expect the EAD w/i 75 days of our priority date.

    10/30/2015 – EAD/ Advanced Parole approved!

    11/19/2015 – Took EAD card, Social Security Card, Passport and Bank Cards to DMV to apply for learner s permit. Approved.

    Big things we worried about and what we did.

    My husband came to the US on a B1/2 visa and he overstayed by 10 years. During that time he did work without authorization, got a Tax Identification number and filed taxes 2 of those years, and actually received a return. haha. On the forms we were truthful and did admit that he worked and did put down where he worked. So far so good and we haven t had any problems. We havent had our interview yet.

    FOLDER 1- LABEL I-130 AND WRITE NAMES ON IT

    Form I-130 – Petition for Alien Relative

    o Attach copy of petitioner s passport me, the wife

    o Attach copy of marriage certificate

    o Attach 1 passport photo of beneficiary and 1 passport photo of petitioner, write the name in PENCIL on back of photos and place each in a separate sandwich bag. I wrote in black marker the name of the person and what form picture belonged to on the sandwich bag.

    o Attach Form G325A for Beneficiary and Form G325A for Petitioner. G325A.A.A.A.A. make sure it ends in A :

    o Submit proof of bona fide marriage

    We submitted APARTMENT LEASE and I made sure my landlord added my husband to the lease although she was only given financial information about myself. Be firm and just tell them its important. you don t have to explain yourself. Most will comply.

    – Photocopy of health insurance card which had my husbands name on it.

    -Photocopy of credit cards that had my husbands name on it. Discovercard and JCpenney will send you a second card if you add them as an authorized user. So on the same paper we copied my husbands card and my card which had the same number on it.

    – Photocopy of joint bank statement which showed both of our names and address. Wells Fargo will open a bank account for someone without a SSN. I made sure to make deposits in his account from my bank account and pay some of our bills from his account to show a paper trail.

    – Photocopy of about 30 pictures of us together in different situations wedding, pictures of him and my mom, pictures of us doing a backyard project, pictures of him and my best friend. if you don t have a lot of pictures just start taking pictures randomly together and write a short blurb describing the pictures.

    – Place all supporting documents in a manilla envelope and label Proof of Bona Fide Marriage. Put in i-130 folder

    FOLDER 2

    Form I-864 – Affidavit of support under section 213A – Make sure to include a photocopy of your ENTIRE tax return for most recent two years INCLUDING all of your W-2 or 1090 s. Since my salary changed drastically from last year to the current year I also included copies of my last 6 months pay stubs.

    FOLDER 3

    Form I-485 – Adjustment of Status

    o Medical examination report must be included in i-485

    o Attach copy of birth certificate

    o 2 passport size photos of the beneficiary. Follow the same instructions for the previous photos.

    o Attach a copy of i-94, passport with all biographical data pages and visa pages copied.

    Attach copy of marriage certificate which is the basis of the i-485

    Form G-1145 e-Notification of Application/Petition Acceptance. Put this form as the first page in the i-485 folder.

    Form I-765 Application for Employment Authorization no additional fee if filed together

    Form – 131 Advanced Parole

    Include 2 passport style photos of the Beneficiary. label and place in baggy as before

    Form I-693 Report of Medical Examination and Vaccination Record separate fee paid to the civil surgeon. We paid around $130

    For the medical examination. Look up all the age appropriate vaccinations that you will need. And then go to a free clinic or community sponsored clinic if you don t have insurance and get all those vaccinations or ask for a TITERS test which will prove that you already received those vaccinations and are immune. If your childhood copy is available bring it. Ask for a printed copy of the lab reports and vaccination record of all vaccinations you get. A copy of the report should be free or minimal cost. Dont say that you need the vaccinations for immigration purposes because insurance and free clinics are not allowed to provide that service just for immigration. Bring all of these records to your medical examination appointment because if you do not have these records they WILL CHARGE YOU EXTRA to do these test. A LOT EXTRA. I recommend starting the vaccination record process about 3 months before you plan to file.

    Good luck guys. We are from Long Island so our interview probably won t be for a few months. Will update you about our interview.

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

    #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.

    Cutting Your Kids’ Schooling Costs

    Whenever the school season is just around the corner, there’s only one thing that parents are thinking about – the impending costs. Education is a primary right and a pertinent need of every child but it can become very costly. Availing of scholarships and education grants for your children is the best way to get them through schooling. But of course, only a small percentage of children can be given these privileges.

    There are simple and effective measures that parents can employ in cutting the costs of their children’s schooling, especially during the back-to-school season. Most often, these measures are often taken for granted, but don’t miss out!

    Organize and Save

    Keep an inventory of your children’s school supplies and keep it organized. If you are not organized, you will be spending more money on replenishing your supplies. Small things like pencils and crayons may not cost too much, but if you replenish your supplies unnecessarily, you are losing valuable money.

    You should also try involving the kids when making the inventory. This will give them a sense of ownership for their things and would know where to take and put their things.

    Tax Holidays

    Tax holidays are often offered by many states during the back-to-school season. Price ceilings will be put on different school gears. You might want to do a little research and ask about the schedule and the details of the tax holidays in your area.

    Bulk Buying

    It’s a basic economic principle – the more you buy, the more you save . Well, this is applicable if you are buying a specific item which you will really need in the near future. In buying pencils, for example, you might want to buy a box rather than buying one for each of your kids. Face it, you will be needing to replenish these after some time, so might as well avail of the lower price by buying in bulk.

    Transportation

    You might want to consider buying your child a bicycle for him to bring to school. This, of course, is not always feasible. Finding a cheap and safe way to bring your children to school daily is an important thing. Car pools and school transportation services are options that you can look at.

    Snacks

    Whenever you have the time and energy to prepare food for your children, do so. You will not only be saving on the pocket money that you will give to them but you are also secured that your children are eating healthy and safe meals.

    Getting your children through school is a hard task and a costly one. Saving money through practical and simple means can assist you in this endeavor. The benefits will eventually add up to bring a brighter future to your children.

    5 Easy Ways To Cut Your Household Expenses

    Are you shocked when seeing your household expenditures every month? The expenses seem to increase every month. If you are in this situation, try these 5 recommendations before your extra paid money will accumulate to a significant amount!

    1. Recycle those junk letters. Each month, you will probably received a dozen or more letters from direct mailing companies in your mailbox. Some of these letters are printed on one side only. Collect these letters and combined them into a writing pad. You can also used them to print draft documents. Besides saving money, you are also saving a lot of trees.

    2. Install water saving kit in your toilet cistern. When flushing the toilet, the amount of water used is usually more than is required. By installing a water saving kit in the cistern, the amount of water saved can be as much as three gallons per month.

    3. Use the fan Whenever possible, use the fan. The air conditioner is a major contributor to your utility bill. By using the fan, not only are you saving on your utility bill, you are also building up your body’s tolerance to heat. Your chances of getting heat exhaustion or heat stroke during the hot summer season are greatly reduced.

    4. Do not throw away that old bar of soap yet. As your wash your hands with soap on a daily basis, the bar will become smaller and smaller until it is almost unusable. Instead of throwing it away, simply stick the old bar of soap onto the new one. Just make sure both of them are wet when sticking them together.

    5. Cut the tube of toothpaste into half. When you can no longer squeeze out any toothpaste from the tube, just cut it in-half. There is some more toothpaste left that can last you for a couple of days if you have a large family. If you live alone or with your spouse only, the extra toothpaste can last up to five days or even more.

    Start cultivating these useful habits today and make them a part of your daily life. You will be pleasantly pleased when you notice your household expense start to decline bit by bit as time goes on.

    Travel Agents – know your rights – Consumer NZ #where #to

    #travel agents nz
    #

    Travel agents

    What are your rights if something goes wrong with the holiday you booked through a travel agent?

    When you book a plane ticket or a hotel room, your contract is with the airline or hotel. The travel agent who handles the bookings has the job of arranging the contract.

    But travel agents remain responsible for their own work, and must carry it out according to the standard of “reasonable care and skill” required by the Consumer Guarantees Act. The Fair Trading Act also applies. They cannot mislead you. But other problems can arise.

    When you book

    Make sure your agent knows your requirements. If you have special needs, put them in writing and keep a copy for yourself. If you amend your plans, let the agent know in writing.

    Be sure to read all the small print on brochures and always ask about the booking conditions before you sign anything or hand over money. Check all your documents as soon as you get them.

    Make sure you have suitable travel insurance.

    If things go wrong

    If you’re away, contact the nearest representative of the tour operator and give them the opportunity to rectify the situation at the time. If you’re not satisfied, let them know, and follow it up when you get home.

    Make notes about any problems you want to take up and, if it’s appropriate, take photos and get the contact details of others who will support your case. Keep receipts and any documentation that will help with a claim for compensation.

    When you complain

    Write to the agent, wholesaler or tourist operator directly and give then the opportunity to put things right. Include copies of all relevant receipts and other documents.

    If you think you are due compensation, add up how much the problem cost you in real terms and estimate the value of lost opportunities.

    If you cannot reach a settlement with the company, write to TAANZ. It doesn’t pay compensation, but it may reprimand the agent if there has been a breach of its code of ethics or rules.

    If the company still won’t pay, take your case to a Disputes Tribunal. This is relatively cheap and there are no lawyers involved.

    Tricky questions

    You paid in advance for a once-in-a-lifetime adventure in Patagonia, but the airline never got the money and now the agent has gone out of business. Can you get your money back?

    TAANZ will pay up to $250,000 for unticketed bookings if a member agency goes bust.

    Yes, if you booked with a bonded member of the Travel Agents Association of New Zealand (TAANZ). But probably not, if your agent is not bonded.

    TAANZ will pay up to $250,000 for unticketed bookings if a member agency goes bust. This would cover all or most outstanding ticket monies. But note that TAANZ won’t pay for bad service. Some agents have their own bond schemes, but most belong to the TAANZ system.

    With an unbonded agent, you will have to stand in line as an unsecured creditor, and you’ll be lucky to see any of your money at all.

    You have booked and paid the deposit on a holiday package to Belfast. But now the agent says it’s wonderful what peace will do for a country’s tourism, and wouldn’t you know it, the price has gone up. Do you have to pay the extra?

    Probably. When you paid the deposit you formed a contract with the wholesaler or tour company, and this will have included your acceptance of the booking conditions. Most agents and wholesalers reserve the right in their conditions to pass on price increases.

    But they must give you the chance to read the conditions before you sign. If they don’t make you aware of them, or lead you to think there will be no price increase and then charge you one, they are at fault. You shouldn’t have to pay the extra.

    At the end of a very tiring week in Beijing you arrive at the airport and, even though you phoned to reconfirm your flight as required, you discover you’ve been “bumped”. There’s no seat for you. What can you do?

    This has nothing to do with your travel agent. Airlines know some travellers won’t turn up so they often overbook planes. It’s their responsibility and there are international agreements set in place as to what they must do for you. In this case they should make arrangements for further flights, accommodate you and compensate you for any losses you incur.

    You probably won’t get anything if the delay is short, but if that missed Beijing flight means you miss the Hong Kong connection to Auckland as well, the airline will have to sort it out.

    You’re going to treat yourself to a week in the sun in New Caledonia, but right after you pay the deposit, your car dies. You need a car; you don’t need the holiday. Can you get your money back?

    It depends on your contract. Most specify there will be a cancellation fee and how much it will be. Very often you will lose all your deposit. Some contracts are so tough, if you cancel close to your departure date you will lose most of what you have paid for the fare.

    Always check the contract before you book. Your travel agent should point out the cancellation details to you at the time of booking and suggest travel insurance if appropriate.

    Your hotel bookings in London’s West End are confirmed, but when you arrive with your voucher the proprietor says the hotel is full. He sends you to another he owns near Battersea. It’s still London, but it’s nowhere near the theatres and restaurants you had so wanted to be close to. What can you do?

    Again, this is not your agent’s fault. You will have to do your fighting with the hotel or, if the accommodation is part of a tour package, with the wholesaler who runs the package. Check the booking conditions of your tour as some reserve the right to change accommodation and tour details as necessary.

    You have prepaid your ferry ticket to your Greek island resort but when you arrive at the ferry you discover you have no voucher for it. You haven’t misplaced it, the agent didn’t give you one. What can you do?

    You’ll have to pay again. But keep the receipt and claim the fare back from your travel agent when you get home.

    You book a holiday in Thailand intending to go diving. You made your intentions very clear to the agent, to the point of asking about the hire of diving gear. But when you arrive you discover it is the monsoon season, there are no dive trips running and that this is normal for this time of the year.

    If you have made your intentions clear to the agent, they have not performed their job with reasonable skill and care. Nor have they provided you with a holiday that was “fit for its purpose”. You can claim compensation. But if they advised you against the trip and you ignored this, the responsibility is yours.

    You want to take the family to Vanuatu, and ask the agent to check whether childcare is available. In your presence he rings the wholesaler, who says it is always available. But when get there, you discover the childcare programme only runs in the peak season. This is not the peak season. Who is responsible?

    The wholesaler. You should try for compensation.

    You have booked and prepaid a rental car in France. When you turn up, you are met with a wall of Gallic shrugs. The company, it seems, has gone bust. What can you do?

    Call your travel insurer. If the car-hire firm went out of business after you confirmed your arrangements, they should compensate you for alternative arrangements and may even make them for you.

    If your agent booked you with a company that was already out of business, it will have to pick up the tab.

    The agent tells you your departure tax has been included in the cost of your air ticket. But your ticket doesn’t show this and the friendly but very firm staff at the airport insist you pay again. What can you do?

    Pay, or they won’t let you on the plane. Make sure you keep your receipt and claim from the agent when you return.

    You thought travel agents worked for the airlines and hotels. So how come they want to charge you a fee?

    Travel agents are paid on commission by the companies selling travel and accommodation. But many of those commissions have fallen recently, and some agents are making up for this by charging customers directly.

    This changes their legal responsibility. If you pay for advice, for bookings to be made or tickets issued, the agent will have more direct liability if something goes wrong.

    You asked a travel agent to get you to Europe and it turns out the best deal involves a stopover in China. When you get there you are not allowed in the country because you don’t have a visa. Shouldn’t the travel agent have sorted this?

    You should always double-check that you have the right visa to enter, travel and/or work in the country you are headed to. This is primarily your responsibility. However, if you asked the agent to specifically sort this out for you, then make a claim for compensation from the agent.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Indonesia Flights – Discount Indonesia airline flight tickets, Save Flights offers cheap Indonesia flighs

    Need a Flight to Indonesia?

    Booking your flight to Indonesia is simple. You can use this page to find your flight, book a flights from Bangkok Thailand to Indonesia and and you can check the weather forecast for Indonesia too. SaveFlights.com offers the selection of various airlines with great savings airfare on one way air ticket, round trip air ticket with online flight booking. Easy to use, friendly and save.

    Guide to Indonesia?

    From her softly rippled shores to the soaring peaks of her volcanoes, Bali, ‘island of the Gods’, takes the senses by storm. Sandalwood and incense linger among emerald-green rice terraces hewn into hillsides, and tiered-roof temples seem to float on crater lakes, surrounded by water lilies and lotus flowers. End of day, and a burnt-orange sun sets fire to clouds as its dips towards the horizon, turning fishing boats into silhouettes as they glide back to shore.

    Bali is just one of at least 13,000 islands making up Indonesia, the largest archipelago in the world. Its vast, scattered territory incorporates over 350 ethnic groups and 500 languages and dialects, as well as Muslim, Hindu, Christian and animist religions.

    In the last few years, friction between various groups and world events have given rise to scattered outbreaks of unrest, so it’s best to check the current situation before you head off.

    So many islands and so much variety makes for any number of possible itineraries, so you can either go with the flow from wherever you start, or plan your route beforehand and probably fail to stick to it.

    Java is home to the hurly-burly capital of Jakarta, as well as a string of active volcanoes, awesome Buddhist and Hindu sites, and the take-it-easy surfside spot of Pangandaran. Well worth a visit, is the ancient capital of Yogyakarta where you’ll discover the architectural splendour of Borobudur and Prambanan temples.

    Neighbouring Sumatra is quite different, a large island of thick jungle, rugged highlands and exotic wildlife including tigers, tapirs and two-horned rhinos. To catch a Komodo dragon in (startlingly brutal) action, head to Komodo or Rinca.

    But if what you really want to do is drop off the face of the real world for a while then take your time roaming the remote Maluku Islands (all one thousand of them).

    BYOD Security: Tips for Reducing Risks #byod #security #software, #what #is

    BYOD Security Policies

    BYOD: Bring Your Own Device, Secure BYOD Policies and Mobile Management

    What is BYOD?

    BYOD is short for Bring Your Own Device, a phrase that refers to the practice of allowing employees to bring their own mobile devices to work for use with company systems, software, networks, or information. BYOD has become a huge trend amongst enterprises, with nearly 1/3 of employees using personal devices at workplaces worldwide. 1 BYOD can provide several key benefits to enterprises, including increased productivity, reduced IT and operating costs, better mobility for employees, and higher appeal when it comes to hiring and retaining employees. However, with these benefits comes an increased information security risk, as BYOD can lead to data breaches and increased liability for the organization.

    BYOD Security through BYOD Policy

    Establishing BYOD security starts with BYOD policy creation. A strong BYOD policy accomplishes several objectives for the organization. BYOD policy should address basic considerations such as the goals of the BYOD program, which employees can bring their own devices, which devices will be supported, and the access levels that employees are granted when using personal devices. Beyond these factors, more in-depth considerations for BYOD policy include:

    • Who will pay for the devices and data coverage required?
    • What regulations (government, industry, or otherwise) must be adhered to when using employee devices?
    • What measures (configuration, software installation, etc) will be taken for securing devices prior to use?
    • Where will data from BYOD devices be stored (locally, in the cloud, etc)?
    • Will there be an agreement for employees that wish to bring their own devices?
    • What happens if an employee violates BYOD policy?
    • What privacy will be granted to employees using their own devices?
    • What support (software updates, troubleshooting, maintenance, etc) will the organization provide for BYOD users?
    • What safeguards are in place if a device is compromised?
    • What methods will be used for securing devices before they are retired, sold, or disposed of?

    Once a policy has been created, maintaining BYOD security depends on an organization s ability to educate its employees on BYOD best practices, implement effective device management and support, and enforce BYOD policies. Employees that are not trained on BYOD security will only increase BYOD risks for the organization. Therefore, creating a sound BYOD program must be a collaborative effort between an organization s employees, IT and security teams, and management.

    Ten Tips for Securing Devices and Reducing BYOD Risks

    These tips should serve as a BYOD security best practices guide for end users and IT/security teams alike. While it is impossible to guarantee BYOD security, following these recommendations will help organizations to mitigate BYOD risks by securing devices.

    1. Use password protected access controls: It may seem obvious, but setting a password/access PIN is a critical first step in BYOD security that many users choose to ignore. Passwords should be unique for each device/account and should not be generic or easy to guess.
    2. Control wireless network and service connectivity: Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity should be turned off when not in use, and employees should only connect their devices to trusted networks. Devices should be set to prompt users before connecting to networks so that employees aren t unknowingly connecting to unsafe networks.
    3. Control application access and permissions: Many devices have built-in access control features. Organizational IT and security teams should assist users in optimizing their access control and app permission settings so that each application can access only what it needs to function and nothing more.
    4. Keep OS, firmware, software, and applications up-to-date: Users need to ensure that all of their devices OS and other software are updated in real time. This is a critical step because software updates often contain security patches to protect users from the latest threats or exploits.
    5. Back up device data: All enterprise users should periodically back up the data on their devices. Backing up data in conjunction with having security and recovery procedures in place will greatly reduce the fallout should a device be lost or stolen.
    6. Enroll in Find my Device and remote wipe services: All BYOD devices should be subscribed to a device locator service. In addition to being able to track a missing device, these services usually have the ability to wipe a device remotely, a critical last-resort measure for ensuring BYOD security in the event of a lost or stolen device.
    7. Never store personal financial data on a device: Employees should avoid saving any financial or otherwise sensitive data on their devices. This precaution ensures that confidential data is safe even if a device gets compromised.
    8. Beware of free apps: Many free applications have been found to track users and share user information with advertisers or other third parties. Enterprise users should review app permissions prior to downloading and download only from trusted publishers. IT and security teams can assist employees by providing lists of applications that are approved for download.
    9. Run mobile antivirus software or scanning tools: There are many commercially available antivirus and security applications that scan and protect devices from common threats. IT and security teams should assist employees in selecting and installing antivirus software prior to using their devices at work.
    10. Use Mobile Device Management (MDM) software as recommended by IT: Many IT and security teams use Mobile Device Management (MDM) software for securing devices. Mobile device management software enables IT teams to implement security settings and software configurations on all devices that connect to company networks.

    The bring-your-own-device fad is fading

    U.S. companies are moving away from the bring-your-own-device (BYOD) trend that kicked off in earnest five years ago and had workers using their personal smartphones and tablets for work duties, according to a new study.

    An online survey conducted in April and May of 375 U.S. IT professionals in various private businesses found that 53% allowed no BYOD, up significantly from 34% in 2013. No BYOD means that a company provides smartphones and tablets to workers and bans the use of personal devices for work.

    Also, just 7% of those surveyed said they allow a full BYOD policy where the company takes no responsibility for devices. Another 40% allow a partial BYOD policy, where the company provides some devices but allows some personal devices to access corporate systems.

    “It’s not quite the death of BYOD, but there does seem to be a decrease in the use of BYOD in enterprises,” said Tim Herbert, senior vice president for research and market intelligence for CompTIA, a nonprofit IT trade association, which conducted the survey.

    The BYOD findings were published recently in a comprehensive CompTIA report, “Building Digital Organizations,” that tracked the intertwined influences of mobile devices and cloud computing on enterprises. “Cloud and mobility represent a true revolution,” the report said, noting that the two technologies represent 100% of all growth in IT spending in 2015. Wireless data spending globally will be $536 billion, while sales of smartphones and tablets will reach $484 billion; overall cloud spending will reach $118 billion.

    “There is a clear move towards a policy of no BYOD,” the report stated. Companies find they can pursue mobility initatives just as well by providing mobile devices to workers “who are often happy to take a corporate device if it is the same thing they would choose on their own.”

    Various studies, including one by management software vendor Good, have concluded that about 70% of smartphones and tablets used by enterprises run on Apple’s iOS.

    The CompTIA report noted that even when companies ban BYOD, “ambitious employees will find ways to utilize personal devices and applications even if they are forbidden.”

    The survey exposed a trend away from BYOD also noticed by Jack Gold, an analyst at J. Gold Associates. “There certainly is a curtailment of BYOD from where everyone thought it would be a couple of years back,” Gold said. “Companies are much more cautious now, knowing that the benefits of BYOD often don’t outweigh the risks.”

    Gold agreed that workers are getting more of the devices they want from their companies so there’s less motivation to circumvent IT. “A lot of the original motivation behind BYOD was by users wanting to replace older style corporate devices like BlackBerry, with newer iPhones in particular, but increasingly Android as well.”

    Both Gold and Herbert said many corporations five years ago thought they could save money by having workers both buy their own devices and pay monthly service bills. “But that’s generally not been the case, as companies have come to realize there is no free lunch with BYOD,” Gold said.

    Another reality is that workers recently have found they can keep their personal photos, music and other data in a personal cloud repository, which means their personal treasures won’t be lost if the worker leaves the company and has to surrender a corporate-owned phone or tablet, Herbert said.

    The CompTIA study also found evidence that discussions within corporations about BYOD as well as mobile device management (MDM) have settled down. Sometimes, companies that never had an internal device usage policy have created a security policy and have trained workers on what uses are not allowed with smartphones and tablets, which lowers the security risk. For example, a company that never had a policy restricting which websites can be visited on a work device or that never restricted use of a smartphone camera, might in the past two years have instituted mobile policies, Herbert said.

    “MDM is probably not at the adoption level some would have expected a few years back,” Herbert said. “Some of the reason may be that companies have focused on getting the mobile usage basics right and now may have a security policy that covers mobility. It was odd that for years many companies simply didn’t have a formal policy for mobile uses.”

    If an organization controls the type of smartphone or tablet used by banning BYOD, it can more easily set the policies and see they are adhered to, which can result in fewer security breaches and lowered costs to deal with breaches. “There’s also been more investment on the employee training side and employees are more self-aware” about mobile security risks, Herbert said. “As a result, the original projections of MDM haven’t been realized.”

    CompTIA interviewed IT executives who said the corporate focus on MDM and BYOD will evolve into greater attention on the Internet of Things, largely as an extension of mobile technology capabilities. “IoT is a very broad area, and we define it as adding intelligence to devices that previously didn’t have it,” Herbert added.
