More Travelers' Tips

Booking a swimming vacation? Just because the hotel or condo is beachfront, doesn't mean swimming is allowed. For example, there could be dangerous currents in front of the resort. So contact the hotel or resort and make sure the beach in front is a swimming beach.

Booking a hotel as a single? Don't assume the room rate is less than for a double. Be sure to check the rate on the double and, if the same, book the double for a larger room. Especially if booking in Europe where the rooms tend to be much smaller than in the U.S.

Going to the United Kingdom? Most British post offices will change foreign currency without any commission charge.

Check out the expiration dates of your credit and/or debit cards before going away. You don't want them to expire while you are away from home.
