DO YOU NEED TRAVEL TIPS?

This is a fast and easy to read 'Travel Tips' eBook and that will provide you with travel gems to help you 'tame the travel monster'. 

As a flight attendant with over 14 years' experience, I've seen my share of 'planes, trains and automobiles' and I'm delighted to share some of my insights with you.

I've also seen problems that could have been avoided with some practical tips. I've learned many things to help make travel as stress-free as possible and it's my pleasure to share them with you.

If you haven't flown post 9/11 or need to refresh your travel know-how, these handy tips will quickly get you up to speed with the do's and don'ts of air travel while providing some valuable travel resources in the process.

Plus, it's a great refresher for the once-a-year leisure traveler. I've listed a few travel tips that can help you prepare for and enjoy your travel experience:

Here are 7 areas I've selected for you:

BEING AWAY FROM HOME

Tip Number 40: Turn off the water shutoff valve to your washing machine. It is a cheap home insurance policy to prevent water damage.

TRAVEL DOCUMENTS

Tip Number 64: Get the number of the American Embassy or your home country's embassy when traveling internationally.

Tip Number 79: There's a pilot program at 110 US airports which allow you to download your boarding pass to your cell phone and present your cell phone instead of printing out a paper boarding pass. (Note: see the 9 airlines below that are participating in this pilot program).

GETTING READY TO TRAVEL

Tip Number 91: If using self-check-in kiosks, you still need to check bags. There is usually a line to drop off your bags so allow time to do this prior to going through the security checkpoint.


AT THE AIRPORT

Tip Number 105: Don't get drunk while waiting for your flight to board - FAA rules prohibit airlines for accepting intoxicated passengers.

Tip Number 121 Remember the overhead bins are shared space. Bin space is not guaranteed and your bags may need to be checked

MEDICAL CONCERNS

Tip Number 131: If you've had a filling, tooth extraction or root canal recently, wait a few days before flying. This is to avoid bleeding and swelling.

DEALING WITH DELAYS

Tip Number 135: If you're traveling for a potentially lucrative business deal, or need to deliver a presentation, give a lecture or an important family function, consider going the day before if possible.

Tip Number 142: A ground-stop occurs when nothing takes off or lands or landings are severely restricted. Air Traffic Control holds the aircraft on the ground or prevents them from landing.

DURING THE FLIGHT

Tip Number 164: Seat backs and tray tables must be in their upright position for takeoff and landing and here's why: If your seat back is in the reclined position, it blocks access for the person BEHIND you to get out of the aircraft quickly in the event of an emergency.

PERSONAL SECURITY


Tip Number 188: Consider purchasing 'look a likes' to avoid traveling with expensive irreplaceable pieces.

TIPPING SUGGESTIONS

Tip Number 215: Hotel Maids are usually forgotten. Tip them $2-5.00 a night, depending on how messy you leave your room. Leave the gratuity each night, with a note or in an envelope that the tip is for them. There may be different maids each day.

I trust you enjoyed some of the tips above. There's plenty more waiting for you. Now is the time to get the information you need with 'Travel Tips', not when you're in a stressful travel situation.

The book was too short even for 99 cents. I would have wanted more. I am sure there was more to write about.

Although this book is aimed at the American market a lot of these tips are transferable to other countries. The information contained in this book will also give Australian travellers an idea what to expect when travelling in the USTravel Tips (223 Insider Tips From a Wanderlust Flight Attendant)
