Claire Newell is the host of Travel Best Bets on Canada’s Global television network. The founder of Jubilee Tours and Travel Ltd., one of Canada’s largest independent travel agencies, she lives in Vancouver.
I'm from BC, so we see author Claire Newell on Global TV regularly, giving travel tips. It was a pleasure to read her book, too. She is an experienced and reliable source on travel tips and information. She travels often with her family, and works as a top travel agent in the Vancouver/Lower Mainland area. Great book! I borrowed it from our local library before purchasing it. After reading it, I could see that it would be a worthwhile purchase to have on hand!

This book is full of a good variety of basic and detailed travel tips..I think they are very obvious things if you have traveled frequently...nothing new here. I was hoping for DEALS and tips on getting the best ones, so i am only giving this a 3. But it is more of a guide to taking the most prepared trip ever. Not the best price...or destination. Reccommened if this is the first time you Fly, Cruise, Leave the country, or are traveling with kids or a group, ..this will have information that is helpful( weather, currency, safety including checklist and extra websites.)..
