Travel Tip Tuesday: What to Pack in Your Carry-On

undefined

1. Headphones

   For listening to music, watching a movie or drowning out the snoring man next to you, headphones are a necessary part of any flight.

2. Water

 Staying hydrated is so important when it comes to traveling, especially on those long flights. You don’t want to start your trip off on the wrong foot! Keep an extra bottle of water with you at all times.

3. Portable Phone Charger

Whether you are using your phone to listen to music, or browsing Facebook during your flight, chances are that it will drain your battery life. Packing a portable charger will ensure that your phone will never be dead (as long as you make sure to charge it)! 

4. Change of Clothes 

Bringing a change of clothes is always a good idea just in case something happens to your luggage, you won’t be stuck in the same dirty clothes. It is also a good idea to bring a change of clothes with you in case your flight is cold and you need to bundle up more! 

5. Snacks

Airplanes do offer snacks most of the time, but they are usually loaded with sodium. Pack extra snacks for yourself to avoid bloating and feeling bad! 

6. Toiletries 

It’s always a good idea to throw a hair brush, tooth brush and toothpaste and maybe even some dry shampoo in your carry on. You may arrive to your hotel before your check in time and these can come in handy when you need to freshen up after a long flight! 

7. Reading Material

Investing in a good book for your flight can be a game changer. If you’re one of those people who just cannot fall asleep on a flight, diving into a good book can make time go by so much faster. 

These are just a few of our most important items to include in your carry-on bag. If you have a go-to item that you always include in your carry-on let us know what it is by leaving a comment below! We would love to hear from you.

Tips for Experiencing the Abu Dhabi Nightlife

undefined

Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) has developed a positive reputation for its wealth, rich culture, and some of the most spectacular architecture in the world. As the second most populous city in the UAE, it is very tourist friendly. If you need some suggestions on where to go, we have a couple.

Abu Dhabi has some of the most luxurious hotels in the world, and many of them have their own themed bars. La Cava wine bar in the Rosewood Hotel is actually located underground and includes more than 10,000 distinct labels, including some of the priciest bottles in all of the UAE. The tropically themed Trader Vic’s is also a good option, known for its Polynesian-themed bar in the Beach Rotana hotel.

A night on the town isn’t complete without some dancing, and you’ll find plenty of world-class nightclubs in Abu Dhabi fusing fantastic music with the city’s astute attention to innovative, forward thinking design. Legends at the Sheraton Abu Dhabi Hotel & Resort is one of the recent clubs to emerge in the city and is known for its Monday Open Bar Night. A number of drinks are available at half their regular price.

Before you plan your trip to Abu Dhabi, make sure to purchase the necessary travel insurance and do your research on its customs.

Traveling with Your Pet for the Holidays

undefined

As important members of the household, the holiday season is probably one of those times when you really don’t want to leave your beloved four-legged friend at home. If your impending travel plans include bringing them along, you can make things easier for them, yourself, and your fellow travelers by simply being responsible.

Make sure to feed your pet at least an hour prior to leaving, and only feed them a small portion. This step will ensure that their food has digested and will reduce the odds of motion sickness. Giving them a walk is also a good idea so that by the time you’re ready to depart, he or she will be sufficiently tired and relaxed, perhaps even falling asleep.

If you’re unfamiliar with the country you’ll be traveling to, consider checking out the BringFido.com website, which provides information on pet-friendly accommodations across 100+ countries. There is also a useful iOS app available that includes not only accommodations but also attractions and pet-friendly restaurants.

Remember that traveling with your pet means having to follow any FAA guidelines as well as those that may be unique to the airline you’ll be flying with. Additional fees may be required and there may be restrictions on the size and breeds allowed to travel in the cabin or in the cargo area. Do your homework before booking a flight so that you don’t run into any surprises.

Airlines Anticipate Quicker Holiday Travel

undefined

We all know that holiday travel can become a nightmare with delays and cancellations but, if you’re planning on traveling this year, there is some good news to report. Many of the leading airlines in the country are confident they’ll be able to handle the increased Thanksgiving travel volume thanks to the greater number of people that have signed up for quick screening. These programs are aimed at speeding up the slow security lines.

Just over 27 million people are expected to fly the friendly skies on a U.S. airline over a twelve day beginning on the 18th of this month and ending on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving. Those numbers represent a healthy increase of more than two percent from last year. The airline industry anticipates airport lines will become more manageable because of the greater number of people enrolled in programs such as TSA PreCheck.

Per the Transportation Security Administration (TSA), close to four million people are currently enrolled in PreCheck, a substantial increase from 1.75 million in 2015. Over five million are enrolled in other screening programs such as Global Entry, a program overseen by U.S. Customs and Border Protection.

Slow moving security lines were a major headache during the spring season, resulting in thousands of passengers missing their flights during the first five months of the year. To address this, the TSA has increased its staff and continues to encourage people to sign up for the PreCheck program.
