Joie de Vivre Hotels: New Properties to Redeem Your Hyatt Points! – World of Hyatt is a popular program among its members, but the problem is their limited geography compared to their peers. Hyatt has been working hard to rectify that situation by adding properties like these. I’ve stayed at a Joie de Vivre Hotel in San Francisco and was really impressed with how nice it was. This will be a very welcome addition to Hyatt lovers.

Earn Hilton Points For Lyft Rides. – I love using rideshare services when I travel so I don’t have to worry about a rental car or pay for parking. The opportunity to earn extra hotel points makes the deal even sweeter! If you haven’t already signed up for them, use my referral links to register for Uber and Lyft. You’ll get a little something extra in your account.

Don’t forget about Lyft’s partnerships with JetBlue and Delta

Etihad Extends Free Abu Dhabi Stopover Till End Of 2019. – If you were considering a trip to the Middle East, now may be the time to book your trip. By booking this special deal, you’ll get a free stopover in Abu Dhabi that includes up to two free nights in a hotel. It is a great way to sample the city to see if you’d like to return for a longer period of time. Worst case is that you get an extra vacation out of your trip.

United Airlines may acquire Avianca. – United’s investment in Avianca may provide the opportunity for them to acquire the troubled airline. Colombia’s foreign ownership restrictions may prevent this from happening, but they may make an exception to ensure that the airline continues operations.

The Airbnb Rules In Los Angeles Are Emboldening Hotels To Rip Off Their Guests. – There needs to be some sort of happy medium. We don’t want entire blocks within cities taken over by landlords who solely rent out the homes on AirBnB, but we also need reasonable alternatives to hotels and their crazy charges they try to stick guests with. I’m not sure of the solution, but I’m sure there is one.
