Product Description

Product Description


This fast and easy to read ‘Travel Tips’ eBook will provide you with travel advice 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’.

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 I’ve selected for you:
#40 Turn off the water shutoff valve to your washing machine. It is a cheap home insurance policy to prevent water damage.
#64 Get the number of the American Embassy or your home country’s embassy when traveling internationally.
#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).
#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.
#105 Don’t get drunk while waiting for your flight to board – FAA rules prohibit airlines for accepting intoxicated passengers.
#121 Remember the overhead bins are shared space. Bin space is not guaranteed and your bags may need to be checked
#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.
#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.
#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.
#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
#188 Consider purchasing ‘look a likes’ to avoid traveling with expensive irreplaceable pieces.
#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, not when you’re in a stressful situation.

1.0 out of 5 stars Closer to 50 tips Oct. 5 2014

I don't expect a lot of originality when I purchase a $2.99 travel tips book, but I enjoy reading them. With this one I felt cheated, and after looking at a few pages I returned it for a refund. The book numbers each paragraph, and sometimes each sentence, so the 233 tips is closer to 50 real tips. For example, the author will mention a favorite web site, then in the next "tip" provide the web address. Just scanning through, many of the other tips are simple sentences, like wearing loose fitting clothes on an airplane. I'll happily pay the $2.99 if the author makes a good faith attempt to write a useful book, buy this one was just a ripoff.

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)

This book was a tremendous help to me. It was well written, short and to the point. I learned many valuable tips that I never knew before such as the certain way you should pack your suitcase. A must read for anyone who is traveling especially if you don't travel much (like me!).

I enjoyed this book. As a former flight attendant I am an avid traveler and having a list of tips in one and in an easy to resource format is nice. Michelle also includes a lot of links to important websites to help make verify information a breeze.
