Travel Tips

  • Be flexible. Say you want to go to Hawaii, but there’s a great deal to Bahamas or Puerto Rico. The flight is half the time and probably half the cost; you’ll still get that beach destination, but you’ll save time and money.
  • Use social networking sites such as Facebook and Twitter to stay on top of flight deals and sales.
  • Save serious cash by hitting up the grocery store for snacks and easy breakfast options. Always travel with your own snacks.
  • Take a picture of your checked bags. If anything gets lost it’s much easier to show a picture than to accurately describe “a big black bag with wheels.”
  • If you are going somewhere that speaks a different language try to familiarize yourself with a few key phrases before leaving: “Can you help me?” “Do you speak English (or whatever language you speak)?” “How much does this cost?” and “Where is the restroom?” Knowing just a few phrases will help to bridge the language barrier and you’ll feel a bit more comfortable knowing you can always find a place to pee.
  • Be aware of extra fees. For example Jet Blue and Southwest include a free checked bag so although a flight with them may be slightly more it could still be cheaper than paying to check your bags with another airline.
  • Use racks of postcards at the airport and souvenir stores to figure out which places you want to see the most.
  • If you’re leaving the country and/or traveling for an extended period of time be sure to bring a copy of your passport in case anything should happen to it.
  • On longer trips it can be cheaper to mail souvenirs and dirty laundry home before returning to avoid potential overweight baggage charges.
  • Mini bottles of liquor are TSA approved for your carryon, just saying…
  • Put a small label on all of your electronics. If anything is lost an address may help a good samaritan to return it to you.
