Views: 1767 Replies: 19

On booking a car for 4 days in Zurich Switzerland ZHR airport via Thrifty I found their CDW was very high compared to what I am used to in USA. Any alternate CDW you would recommend that may be cheaper and close in coverage?

In USA for local rental we mostly decline CDW as CC has coverage, But many have advised us to get CDW in some form when renting in Europe.due to possible extra hassles in case of any accident.

I used DISCOVER Card due to any foreign fees waived and wonder if advisable to sign up for come CDW though DISCOVER itself does offer the benefit, due to above mentioned hassles.

Any tips or experiences in this? Usually there are 3rd party CDW companies also, like the one popped up when using Kayak or Expedia that offered what looked like CDW like coverage for $9 -- I went with Thrifty for car rental as rate was same and lowest as other engines.

TIA for any tips.

Views: 2139 Replies: 14

FRAUDULENT. I booked and paid for a trip to Turks and Caicos, as well as paid for my flight which was just over $700. When I called to confirm the reservation, as the screen asked me to do so AFTER I paid, input all of my private information and gave them my credit card, I was asked arbitrary and discriminatory questions.

I spoke to two different customer service representatives. One was Denise and the other hung up on me when I asked for her name...

The hotel they are offering this deal to is One on Marlin. This is the only hotel I've encountered which doesn't have a concierge who answers the phone.

After you provide bookvip.com with your address, personal information and credit card, you have 15 minutes to call and confirm your reservation.

They ask arbitrary questions such as "are you married?" "Are you seeing anyone?" "Do you have proof of cohabitation?". When I told them that these questions seem odd, each representative gave me a different answer. The first representative told me I had to wait 2 weeks but then let me sign up for NEXT week. The other representative put me on hold while she contacted whoever it is they contact (when I asked for a name she told me it was her calendar - who calls and contacts a calendar?)

Despite the fact that I paid, I was told I didn't meet their qualifications by the first representative - who by the way nearly ripped me off. For the record, the "promotion I purchased was for $149.00. This is how the conversation with representative one went:

Rep 1: Your total after tax is $264.48

Me: how much?

Rep 1: $264.48

Me: what? That's nearly a 50% tax.

Rep 1: sorry, my mistake, it's $230

Me: What percentage is the tax

Rep 1: oh sorry (again!!) your total is $172.84

Then she went into ridiculous questions about my marital status. I'm in my 30's, paid the promotion as advertised. I asked her for her name. She hung up on me.

So I call back. I'm put on hold once again while she checks if the dates I chose were still available (apparently the 'two week waiting period were not in her handbook'). She was kinder than rep one. She gave me her name - Denise and her supervisor is Lex. Ida is the night supervisor this evening. Ida is conveniently in a meeting at the moment.

BOOKVIP IS A SCAM. STAY AWAY. Reporting this to the BB

Views: 2579 Replies: 17

I have about 125,000 points on an American Express Platinum card, and a plan to visit Norway in August. We are a family of 5 (3 kids inc. one baby in the lap) and probably won't need more than a few days of hotel as we can stay with extended family at least half of the time.

I've never used travel points before (last time I left the country was over 15 years ago) and my head is just spinning trying to optimize the trip. There are too many possibilities.
- Flexible with respect to dates, hope for at least a 2 week visit
- Flexible about entry/departure cities as the family would enjoy seeing a different European country or two on the way.
- Must we find flight through Amex rewards travel search? (I tried and it frequently crashes on us) Or can I use a site like Kayak, Adioso, or ITA and somehow find a way to use my points on flights I find that way?
- Is it better to transfer Amex points to an airline like BritishAir and fly to one of their gateways?
- Most of the Amex points came from a 100,000 bonus offer... unfortunately we just entered the second year of $450 fees but I'm wondering whether I should convert the Platinum to a no-fee card and get our prorated fee back; or should I take advantage of Platinum fancy travel perks?

I'd greatly appreciate any gut reactions from experienced travelers on how to maximize our travel dollars!

Views: 2216 Replies: 8

I was wondering if anyone has taken a cruise to Alaska, I'm heading out next month, and how you prepped regarding gear. I've heard temps can vary and dress in layers, and I have stuff for that and possible rain. Specifically I am looking for some inexpensive (not cheap) hiking shoes. I used to go camping/hiking a lot more and understand the value in a good pair of footgear, but don't do much of that anymore. As such I don't really want to pay $100-150 for a pair of rarely used shoes so I am looking for a way to get some at a discount perhaps a prior generation if those get cheaper. However since I haven't bought a pair in a while I am at a loss for what/where to buy. I have checked the local REI, Big 5, Sport Chalet which have some clearance which would be great but I have feet just outside the normal stocked sizes (13.5/14 US). Any ideas are welcome.

Also if anyone has been on an Alaskan cruise, do you have any tips, or stuff to check out/skip?

We'll be staying about a kilometer north of the main Hamilton bus station.
Any can't miss things to do?

Planning to go downtown Wednesday night to see "Harbour Night" festivities.. but other than that, we're good with anything.

The round trip to India often involves a stop over in Europe anyway depending on airline but most good deals seem to be just for a transit through Europe and not staying over for a few days in Europe.

Should we book a round trip to Europe separately (destinations in EU undecided) and from there a round trip to BOM India? Or better to add a break over directly with the airline with final destination in India before returning?

<![CDATA[Top Ten Jobs If You Love To Travel]]> http://www.fatwallet.com/forums/travel-discussion/1445541/ Rating: 0 Posted By: 1stworldview
Views: 3060 Replies: 9

(10) Flight attendant

It may be the most obvious travel-related job, but it's also one of the most accessible: You don't need a specialized degree to become a flight attendant, and most major airlines only require prior customer service experience and a certification from the Federal Aviation Administration. The hours are frequently erratic, and the work isn't always easy, but you'll get a glimpse of hundreds of cities across the globe during your career. A bonus perk? Free or discounted flights for you and your family.

(9) International aid worker

If you want to travel for a living while making a real difference in people's lives, consider working for an international aid organization like USAID. With this job, you can visit struggling countries and help its residents recover from dire situations such as natural disasters and famine. You'll need a background in a field like health, agriculture or education and a strong interest in social work, according to How Stuff Works.

(8)Exploration geologist

Exploration geologists help resource extraction companies identify the most profitable places from which to extract natural resources. Since extraction tends to happen in places that aren't very well-populated, exploration geologists get to travel to some of the most remote regions of the world, and can be away from home for months at a time.

(7)Cruise line worker

Working on a cruise ship is a travel lover's dream gig: You quite literally make a living traveling the world, all while receiving free food and accommodations. Whether you're a restaurant server, a shop clerk or a performer in the cruise's entertainment lineup, there are opportunities for individuals of all backgrounds to work on one of these "floating resorts." Websites like Cruise Line Jobs list employment openings with some of the top-rated cruise lines.

(6)Travel tour guide

Imagine spending your days guiding fellow travel lovers through a bustling European metropolis, or perhaps a small local village is more your speed. Wherever you want to go, popular travel destinations are always in need of friendly, knowledgeable guides to lead tourists through city sights and cultural excursions. Study up on the history and culture of your city of choice, and don't forget to brush up on the local language!


Archaeologists travel the world to recover and preserve artifacts from past human cultures. Careers in archaeology require frequent travel, often to remote regions of the earth.

A benefit of speaking one of the world's most popular languages is that there are people all over the world who want to learn it. Teaching English in a foreign country is one of the easiest ways to get out and see the world. Many teaching positions in foreign countries do require a certification, but you can easily get one in about a month's time.

(3)Executive assistant

It may not be the most glamorous of jobs, but playing a behind-the-scenes role in the life of a corporate executive or other high-powered professional means you'll be right alongside your boss on his or her business trips. Since individuals in these positions travel quite frequently for important client meetings, you'll have plenty of opportunities to see new places while you work.

(2) Oceanographer
If you love traveling by sea and have a passion for learning more about it, then there is probably no better career for you than that of an oceanographer. Oceanographers often split their time between laboratories and research ships, where they can spend months away from home visiting remote regions of the ocean.

(1) International Marriage Broker Tour Leader.

If you love to travel and are single this is absolutely the best job you can imagine. International Marriage Brokers travels the world holding single events in some of the most beautiful places on earth. Each week companies like A Foreign Affair travel to exotic locations in Eastern Europe, Asian and Latin America. Business men and professionals travel in groups where they will attend single events that A Foreign Affair call socials, at these social events the men will meet 500 to 1000 beautiful single women and models. The tours consists of social, dating and site seeing, all while interacting with dozens of men and women falling in love.

My wife and I went to Costa Rica earlier this year and fell in love with the country. We are going back in late July and will be taking our kids this time, ages 22 and 6 (yes, my kids are 15 years apart).
We stayed in Guanacaste on Peninsula Papagayo and at the Marriott near Tamarindo on our previous trip.
Our upcoming vacation is in July, but we do not have anything planned yet.
If you had a week to plan in Costa Rica and your options were wide open what would you do?
Our thoughts so far: Maybe stay in Jaco on the beach. We want to zipline, obviously go to the beach, see the wildlife and try to catch a marlin (my lifelong dream).
We have a general idea of what we want to do, but are open to suggestions.
The one thing we did not like is that the pacific was freezing, so we were wondering if the Carribean ocean is warmer. I was surprised that the Pacific would be so cold so far south. It was February, but it was cold.

Where would you recommend we stay? What should we do?

We want to see wildlife. Should we take a river tour? I heard there was a place where you can hold monkeys, which would be nice.

Any suggestions or ideas are appreciated. Thanks

Hi all,

In a recent promotion on Facebook, BookIt.com was giving away 100 trips in 10 days. I was one of the winners. While they've verified that I have won via email, I don't have any of the details yet which they are sending via regular mail.

The prize was for a 5 night stay for two at the Barcelo Bavaro Beach, Adults-Only property. They are also including a $500 airfare credit. I assume that isn't per person but probably for the both of us so I'd likely have quite a bit of airfare left to pay for. I priced the absolutely cheapest airfare from Memphis to the destination at around $700. And I'm guessing the airfare has to be via BookIt which I have no idea if they will be charging more/less/etc. It really sounds like a great vacation but I'm unsure if paying $1000 or so for a prize is a great idea and debating it internally unfortunately. I mean that almost sounds more like a discount than a free trip. Hopefully I'm wrong or airfare is less than I'm thinking or something.

Anyway, just curious if anyone else has won a trip and what to expect...

I'd like to get some suggestions on a good and cheap vacation with the kids. We are in New Orleans. We usually drive to either Destin, FL or Orange Beach, AL. We have gone as far as Gatlinburg, TN and Panama City Beach. They are older - 13 and 15 so we can go further, I guess. Flights seem too expensive, although I would consider paying around $300 per ticket to go somewhere. Driving seems to be a more manageable thing, though. I've thought about even taking a train, just for the experience, but after the latest crash, not so sure.I'd like to show them some amazing and unusual places.
Thank you!

=12pxMy wife and I are planning an anniversary trip over Thanksgiving from St. Louis.

Basically we can leave on the Wednesday before and return on Sunday or Monday after.

We are looking for an all-inclusive, adults only(since this is our first trip together without our children) to some place south of the border. We are thinking anywhere from from Mexico, Dominican or a Caribbean Island. Most of the sites I have looked at only have air fair through October. When is the best time to book a trip like this to find the best deal at a above average(but not top dollar) resort? We aren't tied to any miles program, just looking for the best deal.
