Travel – its one of those things that is one of those things that conveniently gives rise to questions, concerns and doubts, so this i am here to put your mind at ease, its also why I am creating this this page.
Which trip is right for me? What do I do about visas? How much do I tip? Do I tip? All of these question are great questions and should be answered, these FAQ pages will hopefully be the start to your answers.
If you have a question then Contact me and I will either answer it or do the research to be able to answer it for you.
Are All-Inclusive Resorts worth it?
Yes, they are if you want to know exactly how much the bill for your Caribbean/Mexico/Cancun get away is going to be. If you know you are going to eat at the resort, and enjoy drinking (whether that drink is a soda or a margarita).
They are NOT worth it if you like mixing with the locals, know you will be eating out on the town, don’t mind not knowing what the bill at the end of the trip will be and know you won’t be drinking a lot other then bottled water.
Just know its two very different types of trips!
What size Carry-on can I take on my flight?
This now really depends on the airline you are flying. It is best to look it up on the airlines website. If you need help after you have booked your flights please let your travel agent know or you can always ask your booking agent at the time of booking your airline ticket what restrictions for baggage are.
What items an I take on in my Carry-on?
Each passenger may carry liquids, gels and aerosols in travel-size containers that are 3.4 ounces or100 milliliters. Each passenger is limited to one quart-size bag of liquids, gels and aerosols.
It is best if you inform yourself of the TSA regulations on their website. I have attached the TSA checklist for you for reference. Also please note what are TSA prohibited items for you knowledge.
How do I plan a multi-generational trip/honeymoon/baby-moon/girlfriend get-a-way?
Ask lots of questions of the participants. What’s the goal of the trip? What’s the budget? What are their interests? What mode of travel is preferred? Is alone time necessary or is everyone group-oriented? How many days can they get away? These are some starter questions.
For people traveling from multiple destinations, choosing the right place to visit, and try and pick a place that will accommodate as many activities as possible since there will be different ideas of what “fun” is.
Is it safe to travel to (destinations of concern)?
I always suggest checking the State Departments regularly updated Web site which has up-to-date alerts and warnings that are guided by current events. Also for more government travel advisories check with the countries you are traveling to, their own state departments will always update their own websites with travel advisories.
As a general rule of thumb I also stay away from countries deep in the red zone, such as Syria, Iraq and Nigeria and Nations that are in yellow, such as Egypt, Kenya and Tunisia I always use my best judgment with the situations in the countries I would like to travel to.
