Travel Tips On A Budget

By TIPS & TRAVEL TRICKS No Comments

Don’t Schedule During Peak Times

If you’re looking for someplace warm to go during the winter, chances are you’re not the only one. This high demand can drive up airfare and hotel prices, but can also mean that companies offer better rates for bulk! With that in mind, you can save a bundle by scheduling your trip for the off season–spring and fall are usually best. Depending on the region that is considered off-seasons. For example, Mexico, if you schedule your trip for the summer rates may be lower. For Europe, schedule your flight some time between Thanksgiving and Easter when most tourists opt to stay home.

Consider Packing Carry-On Baggage Only

It’s no secret baggage fees generate plenty of revenue for budget airlines. It takes some discipline but travelling with carry on baggage only is a definite way to save lots of money travelling. Check out our tips on packing light and what necessities are needed in our other blog.

Find a Cheap Flight

If air travel is a must–perhaps you’re going somewhere across the pond–there are a few cost-effective options you should consider. There are a variety of search engines available online that allow you to compare airfare in an attempt to find the cheapest flight possible. If you’re willing to be patient and flexible with your travel plans, flying standby or giving up your seat on an overbooked flight is also a great way to save money. Most airlines offer you cash or a voucher for future travel if you opt to offer up your seat on an overbooked flight.

Book Flights With Layovers For Cheaper Flights

Search engines are getting better at providing lots of custom options for flights. Direct flights might be the most convenient, but are also the most expensive more often than not. Look for flights with layovers on and you may find yourself saving hundreds of dollars when they mix and match airlines for each route of travel!

Bring Your Own Snacks For The Airport/Airplane

Airports might have duty free, but restaurants, whether sit down or quick order are often expensive at airports. With water not being allowed through customs prior to security check point, bring a refillable bottle and fill up once you get through security. Food can be brought through (vegetables and fruits exempt in some countries) so be sure to pack a few snacks.

Pack Snacks For Your Days Adventure

During long days of sightseeing, snacks help fuel your energy as well as hold your appetite until dinner.

Las Vegas

By Destinations No Comments

Las Vegas, USA

Average temperature: 21°C

Its Spanish name means ‘the meadows.From its beginnings as a cowboy town, through its rat-pack mobster phase to its current “Big Time” delivery. It’s also a good pick for a March holiday destination, as temperatures hovering around 20°C are pleasant and not quite as desert-like as other times of year.

You don’t have to be a gambler! Las Vegas bills itself more as an entertainment centre. The Wynn, for example, offers free mojitos and tequila. True to its name, The City That Never Sleeps, with museums, shows, and casinos that run all hours of the day- You will certainly need to catch up on those zzz’s on the flight home!

The most eye-catching attraction at the Bellagio, a supersize, all-American Italian villa, is the signature dancing fountains. The geysers—more than 1,200 in all—are nestled in the eight-and-a-half acre lake in front of Bellagio on the Strip. They erupt every half-hour beginning at 3pm and every 15 minutes from 8pm until midnight. A must see when in Vegas!

Many of the more preposterously themed hotels in Vegas pay homage to notable locales around the world that would seem tacky anywhere else than here. You want Paris and the Eiffel Tower? Try Paris Las Vegas. Venice? There are gondolas and a St. Mark’s Square at the Venetian. Bellagio has a replica of Italy’s Lake Como. The Big Apple? New York New York has the Statue of Liberty!

Cirque du Soleil shows and dozens of other options around the area, hitting up one of the city’s production shows is one of the most popular activities for Vegas visitors. There are plenty of excellent choices, including Blue Man Group’s rhythmic take on alienation at the Luxor, or Penn & Teller’s magic secrets revealed at Rio. Or catch the smash-hit Four Seasons musical, Jersey Boys—one of the city’s most enduring Broadway shows—at Paris Las Vegas.

5 Unforgetable Family Vacations

By TIPS & TRAVEL TRICKS No Comments

Brittany, France 

Brittany is ideal if you want to take the kids abroad but not somewhere too hot – peak summer months are July-August and temperatures are usually about 18C. There are many child-friendly resorts around France’s western coast.

Brittany, lying in the northwest corner of France, is one of the great historic provinces of France. The most Atlantic of France’s regions, Brittany is proud of its Celtic heritage, that sets it apart from the rest of France. It enjoys a mild climate somewhat warmer though not necessarily drier than the climate of the southwest of England. The name “Brittany” derives from the Britons who, back in the Dark Ages, came south across the English Channel to seek refuge from the Anglo Saxon invaders who were pushing them out of a large part of the island of Great Britain.

Prices Range From $3,400-$5,500 For A Family Of 4 May-August

Scotland

Edinburgh, Scotland

Summer is festival time in Edinburgh: the Edinburgh Festival Fringe has hundreds of shows especially for kids, including stand-up comedy for younger audiences, so no swearing, and only jokes about Ben 10.

Edinburgh is Scotland’s compact, hilly capital. It has a medieval Old Town and elegant Georgian New Town with gardens and neoclassical buildings. Looming over the city is Edinburgh Castle, home to Scotland’s crown jewels and the Stone of Destiny, used in the coronation of Scottish rulers. Arthur’s Seat is an imposing peak in Holyrood Park with sweeping views, and Calton Hill is topped with monuments and memorials.

Prices Range From $4,300-$6,500 For A Family Of 4, May-August

Disneyland Paris

Disneyland, Paris

Ah Paris, city of culture, romance, fine food…and Disneyland! If Disney World in Orlando is too far to travel with offspring, Paris is only a short flight away, which makes it easier, and of course the kids will love it.

Disneyland Paris, originally Euro Disney Resort, is an entertainment resort in Marne-la-Vallée, a new town located 32 km (20 mi) east of the centre of Paris, and is the most visited theme park in all of Europe.

Prices Range From $2,800-$5,200 For A Family Of 4, May-August

Greek Isles

Corfu, Greece

Kalami is a great place to unwind with the family, with its secluded bay and scenic walks. However, if the kids are hankering for something to do, try Avlaki beach in the north, where they can learn to windsurf or even ride horses.

Corfu, an island off Greece’s northwest coast in the Ionian Sea, is defined by rugged mountains and a resort-studded shoreline. Its cultural heritage reflects years spent under Venetian, French and British rule before it was united with Greece in 1864. Corfu Town, flanked by 2 imposing Venetian fortresses, features winding medieval lanes, a French-style arcade and the grand Palace of St. Michael and St. George.

Prices Range From $4,200-$6,700 For A Family Of 4, May-August

Disney

Disneyland, California

While enjoying your stay at the Disneyland Resort, take some time to explore some of the Golden State’s most celebrated sightseeing destinations.

Since its opening, Disneyland has undergone a number of expansions and major renovations, including the addition of New Orleans Square in 1966, Bear Country (now Critter Country) in 1972, Mickey’s Toontown in 1993, and the forthcoming Star Wars Land in 2019. Opened in 2001, Disney California Adventure Park was built on the site of Disneyland’s original parking lot.

Prices Range From $2,300-$3,400 For A Family Of 4, May-August

Get Through The Airport Quickly

By TIPS & TRAVEL TRICKS No Comments
Airport Tips

Get as prepared as you can and check-in online before you fly.

Some airlines allow you to check in online 24 hours before so you just drop your bag at the airport, saving you having to wait in the queue to check in. With your Beforeifly App, you can check-in online with over 150 airlines!

If you do have to check-in a bag at the airport, take what you need with you on your carry-on and pack everything else in your hold luggage. Sometimes with delays, or cancellations, luggage is misplaced or delayed. By packing essentials in your carry-on, you won’t be running to your closest department store for the first night!

When dealing with an immigration officer, be polite and well spoken, make good eye contact  and have a clear idea of where you are going next (name of hotel, car rental). Never ever make jokes and do not use your mobile phone. Be respectful.

Pack Light! If you are heading to a warm and tropical destination, remember that you will be spending most of your time on a beach. A few swimsuits, and some appropriate dinner attire is all you need! You may be able to pack it all in a carry-on and avoid any additional baggage fees.

In the end, always remember that there are thousands of flights in a & out of the airports. 

Travel Should Be Fun & Exciting. Do not let any small airport glitches set the tone for your vacation!
