The Morning Shave
Woman kicked out of Wyndham property after bad review on Hotels.com. – I know that hotels, airlines, and OTAs are just trying to be helpful by asking for feedback during the middle of your stay. However, this is what can go (really) wrong if you’re too honest with your comments. If it’s something small, mention it. For the really big items, complain in person or wait until your stay is over. Otherwise, be prepared to move if the problem is so bad.
22 Best Travel Apps Every Traveler Should Know About. – There are some awesome apps on this list. I already use many of them, but a few new ones that I just downloaded include Flush (find toilets), Timeshifter (reduce jetlag), and Headout (local events).
11 Rookie Mistakes to Avoid on Your First Trip to Europe. – Traveling to Europe is one of my favorite international destinations. I totally agree with these suggestions. Public transportation is awesome and you must buy tickets in advance for the attractions you really want to visit. And make sure to bring a credit card that doesn’t charge foreign transaction fees. Those additional 3% charges can really add up during a vacation.
You and 14 friends can all access the airport lounge with this card. – Most travel credit cards limit airport lounge access to your immediate family or two guests. And almost all charge a fee if you want to add an authorized user. This card is similar to the AA Executive Platinum where you can add additional users for no extra charge, which gives even more complimentary access to you and your friends and family. To make use of your airport lounge access, read our review of the best credit cards for free flights.
Google Flights Adds Incredible New Price Tracking Feature. – I love using Google Flights to research flight prices. Now, prices are even easier to track with their automatic alerts of price changes. So, when a ticket price drops to your favorite destination, you can snag a huge deal and save a bunch of money.
