Many travelers are cruising right now thanks to pandemic credits and a desire to see the world for a fixed price. While most cruises include all meals as part of the price, that doesn’t mean you should eat everything on the menu. Read this article to determine which items are good or bad for you while stuck on a cruise ship with hundreds of people.
If you don’t have TSA PreCheck, it’s still possible to skip the airport security lines at select airports. At a handful of airports, you can now book a reservation that lets you skip the line like a VIP. And it’s completely free! How cool is that? Personally, I just use CLEAR to avoid lines when I travel.

One of the most valuable benefits of hotel elite status is complimentary upgrades at check-in. Now, it seems that Hilton is trying to squeeze additional revenue out of their most loyal travelers by offering paid upgrades when checking in via the mobile app. This is a major devaluation of elite status.

While this policy is frustrating, it is completely understandable. If you visit two different places, you need to pay two different admission fees. Similarly, if you visit Disney World in the morning, then fly to California, you can’t get into Disneyland for free just because you paid for a ticket to Disney World earlier that day. We should be grateful that American Airlines is generous with its policy allowing same-day admission at multiple clubs. And Joe & Sharon should remember to bring the right credit cards with them, so they qualify for free admission into the airport lounges. 😉
