Travel Tips for US Visitors

Travel tips for US visitors.

Having a travel guide is good advice for anyone traveling to another country. If you’ve ever seen a travel guide, you’re probably aware of the kinds of details inside of them. They include details such as, how to travel to your destination, then how to travel around your destination, money tips, where to stay, what to eat, etc.

When traveling to the US, a guide book is also a great idea. Being prepared while traveling is essential. Below is a list of things you may experience here which most likely aren’t printed on the pages of any book.

Some of the generalizations you may have always thought to be true about America may or may not be true. Whatever the case, make sure you’re aware that the US and our citizens have a unique spirit.

But if you know what to ask for, you’ll find that in-flight offerings are not quite as stingy as they seem. We asked author and former flight attendant Beth Blair for her tips on the free extras and services only available to those who know to ask.

Saving on Summer Airfare Thumbnail

Saving on Summer Airfare

Chaotic schedules often lead to fantasies of summer vacation. The same schedules typically result in putting off planning said getaways. Now that summer’s upon us, the question arises – is it too late to book a vacation? It’s a reasonable concern, seeing as many airlines have few seats left during the summer months, particularly for prime vacation destinations. Another daunting consideration – prices for the seats that do exist.

The good news – it’s possible to take a summer break without breaking the bank.

When compiling its summer travel research, the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Bureau of Transportation Statistics focused on the period of time beginning the Thursday before Memorial Day and ending the Wednesday after Labor Day. Based on its own research, the online metasearch siteKayak has found August to be the least expensive month for summer travels.

Pet Peaves About Air Travel Thumbnail

Pet Peaves About Air Travel

Even the most even-tempered person can get annoyed while flying in moving metal with 100+ other people. Here is a varied collection of pet peeves and wry observations — along with some polite disagreements and a handful of explanations. Many thanks to the contributors, who shall remain anonymous.

The 8 biggest gripes:

“Seatback in the upright position.” Scores of people asked, “Is a lousy two-inch pitch really going to make much of a difference during takeoff and landing?” (See answer, below.)

Security. My original column came at the height of the London bomb scare, unleashing a torrent of complaints about the new no-liquids policy and the goons rifling through your bags. And why, people asked, can duty-free shops continue to sell items that their clueless customers cannot take on the airplane?

In-flight “snacks. “Why bother to give out half-ounce packages?” asked one reader. “I counted, and there were only eight peanuts in a package. I saved mine so as not to spoil my dinner that night.”
