Why Not A Florida Vacation Rental Next Time!

Why Not A Florida Vacation Rental Next Time!

Florida Vacation

So you are planning another trip to Florida with the family! Why should you choose a Florida vacation rental? Because there’s nothing better than waking up to the sounds of seagulls and the breathtaking views found only along the white, powdery beaches of Florida’s Gulf of Mexico coastline.

That is, of course, unless you’d rather dance into the wee hours of the morning at Miami’s hottest nightclubs and view some of the finest anatomy you’ve ever seen (even some that money can buy)! Either way, the view you’ll get of this popular tourist destination is guaranteed to be better if you see it from one of the many Florida vacation rentals that are available year-round.  Complete Article


Cruise Travel Insurance - Why you must purchase Trip Insurance for your next Cruise Tour

Cruise Travel Insurance - Why you must purchase Trip Insurance for your next Cruise Tour

Carnival Cruise Ship

Many travelers do not purchase cancellation and emergency medical coverage when they book their travel.  Their usual excuse is that they will travel no matter what happens or that they are already covered by their credit cards. 

As the owner of Cruise Holidays of Vancouver and AlaskaCruiseExperts.com, one of the largest cruise-only agencies in Canada, I have seen many of our guests purchase this coverage (sometimes grudgingly!) and then coming back to us with relief that they did buy the coverage as something had gone wrong before or during their vacation.

Tour of Oahu Hawaii - How to Plan the Vacation - Where to Stay and What to See - Travel Plans and Sightseeing Trips

Oahu

The Hawaiian Islands is one of the most desirable vacation spots in the world, with beautiful weather all year round amidst a tropical setting. Waikiki, on the southwest coast of Oahu, is a very popular destination spot.  There is a line of hotels right on the beach to choose from.  The more desirable (and more expensive) rooms face the ocean. 

You can drive around the Island of Oahu in one day, but there is so much to see that you may want to spend a few days investigating the sites.  Waikiki is next to Honolulu and Pearl Harbor. The USS Arizona Visitor Center is located on the Pearl Harbor Naval Base adjacent to the sunken remains of the USS Arizona. The center and USS Arizona Memorial are free of charge to the public and there are no reservations.  Tour of Oahu Hawaii - How to Plan the Vacation - Where to Stay and What to See - Travel Plans and Sightseeing Trips

Home and Travel

If you are looking to buy a boat, the first thing you will need to do is determine what you want to do with the boat.  Do you want to ski, fish, travel, or just speed?  There are endless boats to choose from including power boats, motor boats, houseboats, sailboats, cruisers, racers, zodiacs and catamarans.  You may also want to consider renting a boat before deciding what boat to buy. 

If you are looking for a fishing boat you should compare johnboats, bass boats, and pontoon boats.  Consider how many people will be traveling with you on your trips and make sure your boat can accommodate everyone.  Covers / canopies are nice, and so are swivel chairs.  You should also tell the salesman which lakes you plan on fishing in.  This may help in determining which boat is right for you.  Types of Boats - What to Look For When Choosing a Fishing - Speed - Sail or House Boat - Buyers Guide Inflatables - Zodiacs - Ski - Houseboats

Saving money can give a person a great feeling.  The Internet has made saving money much easier by reducing the amount spent by the customer and by giving the business the opportunity to sell more products.  If you don’t go to their restaurant or business, you will be going somewhere else; so why not offer a coupon?  The ABC News program Good Morning America has been running a $100 A Day in May series that highlights this opportunity. 

Special correspondent, Stephanie Nelson, mentioned a few methods of saving money using online sources.  First she mentioned the Entertainment Book that is packed full of coupons.  They usually sell for $30 and include hundreds of pages of offers.  The book will cost less money off season.  We just checked and right now the company is offering the book for just $7.99 online, plus one dollar shipping.  Save Money at Restaurants – Online Coupon Books As Seen On Good Morning America – Rewards – Rebates – Internet Dining Savings

Airline Travel

There are many places online where you can purchase airline tickets including Priceline, Expedia, and Travelocity.  They are all different and you may find a deal on one but not the other.  All offer a relatively quick search of airline fares.    

In addition to a quick list of airline fares, Priceline offers a “Name Your Own Price” service where you are able to bid on a specific Departure and Arrival location.  In this process you will need to input detailed information about the travelers including ages.  Then just name your own price and see if it is accepted.  You may have a better chance of getting a deal if you pick off times and dates.  For instance, don’t pick December 24th for travel.

Travelocity also offers a quick search for prices.  Travelocity also offers flexibility and a guarantee that says that “when you book with Travelocity and encounter any problem with your booking, we'll work with our partners to make it right.”  Booking your Airline tickets Online – Discount Airplane Fares – Compare Expedia Travelocity and Priceline - Avoiding the Pitfalls

Paris: A City that will Captivate You - Travel Planner For France - Common Words and What You Need To Take and Know

Home and Travel

I soaked up the personalities of boutiques as I walked among the streets, I glided along the Seine River on a luxurious dinner cruise, and I almost fainted when I finally saw the Eiffel Tower in person. I fell in love with a city. I fell in love with Paris, France. I have no doubt that you would, too.

Paris in the summer was most enchanting. There is always a celebration or an event that will perk your interests. From the three-day Paris Country Fair to the Nuits de Feuto, one of the largest fireworks spectaculars in the world, these events are sure to please especially if you like the outdoors. Or, if you prefer the indoors, with 140 theatres and show venues, there are major theatrical productions and musicals galore!  Paris: A City that will Captivate You - Travel Planner For France - Common Words and What You Need To Take and Know

Travel in the United States since the terrorist attacks of 9-11 - How have things changed?

Travel in the United States since the terrorist attacks of 9/11 - How have things changed?

Airline Travel has changed

Long gone are the days when an airline passenger is able to go straight to the gate and catch their flight. As you all know, the way we think about travel has been profoundly changed by the events of Sept. 11 and their aftermath. These shifts have had a practical and psychological impact on all of us. Most of these changes have taken place in the airline industry although other parts of the travel industry and the nation as a whole have been forced to adjust also.

Immediately after Sept. 11, as you know, travel was drastically reduced virtually across the planet. In the past year, it has been steadily picking up. However, in most cases, it has not reached pre-September 11 levels. Domestic travel In the United States has recovered much more quickly than international travel. In fact, domestic travel has been very strong this summer, with some destinations such as the national parks are reporting record breaking numbers of visitors. International travel has been picking up too, but more slowly. Recently, more people are beginning to plan international trips again.  Travel in the United States since the terrorist attacks of 9-11 - How have things changed?
