    Tripadvisor is your best friend. Read hotel reviews and post on the forums to get a general idea of the do’s and don’ts of your destination. I also pay for EVERYTHING on my AMEX card so that I can use the reward points for travel deals (i.e. you can eat out and book hotels for next to nothing). To avoid baggage fees, invest in a travel backpack.

    Safe travels on your upcoming trip!

  9. How much vacation time do you get from your employer? – ~3 weeks
    Where was the last place you went on vacation? – Orlando
    When did you go? – July
    How long were you there? – 5 days
    Did you go alone or in a group? – just me and my husband
    What did you do while you were there? Are you a lounge around vacationer or one that likes to sight see? – We went to see the space shuttle launch. While there, we also visited Universal Studios (the Harry Potter section is amazing) and spent lots of time lounging at the pool.
    How often do you go on vacation? – Twice a year for a bonafide vacation (e.g. sightseeing, beach, museums, etc.). We also take smaller trips, often to visit family, several times a year.
    Where is the next place you want to visit? – There are tons of places I want to go to, I think “next” will just be determined by external factors. For now, some of the places/events on the list include Vegas, the Sundance Festival, Toronto or Montreal, Senegal, the Galapagos Islands, Argentina, Italy, and London.
    Do you have a passport? – Yep
    Do you have a favorite travel website that you like to visit? Any travel tips to share? – Use tripadvisor to find a nice safe hotel that doesn’t cost an arm and a leg. This is especially useful if you’re willing to forego a big brand and some niceties (e.g. toiletries in the room, full service restaurant, etc.). I find that on an international “city visit” trip, a safe 3-star hotel located in the heart of things works well for me. Also, travel during the shoulder season. Your money will go farther. Finally, be price check some of the offers at the discount site. When I went to Jamaica, I’d originally planned to buy from cheapcaribbean.com. By the time they added all the separate fees (e.g. taxes, resort fees, transfer costs, etc.), it was more expensive than buying the same trip from American Express travel. Oh, if you’re a Costco member check out their travel agency.
