New Zealand: Hand over phone password at border or face $3,200 fine. – Well, it seems like New Zealand may be crossed off my list of places to visit. If you’re going to visit New Zealand, consider backing up and wiping your phone before flying, then restore it once you arrive at your hotel.


6 Travel ‘Savings’ Traps That Can End Up Costing You More. – Those of us who travel using miles and points are pretty good about saving money. But, there are still mistakes that we can make if we’re not careful. Read this list to save some serious money.
