Do You Like To Travel? Do You Wish You Could Travel The World Cheap?

By:Kristi Ambrose

When it comes to traveling, I am no expert. However, I have traveled to a few different places and have planned on going to many places in the future. One problem I always have is the money. Its so darn expensive to go to places like Italy and France! Not only do you have to pay for the tickets, but you also have to pay for the accommodations. And if you won't have a car there, you need to rent one of those as well. After all that, you start to add in money for food, money for pleasure, and you are up around a few thousand bucks!

Recently I started looking for a way to travel the world cheap. It seems like everyone wants to sell something. But then I found a site that truly wants to help you with your cheap travel options. They really are travel experts when it comes to ANY kind of travel or vacation packages. This is unlike every other site you find online; it's not like Expedia or Travelocity. Instead, it's a website that offers travel industry secrets through an ebook you can purchase. This ebook offers hundreds of different travel industry secrets such as the ones below:

- The exact days and times when airlines upgrade their fares this will give you an almost unfair advantage to getting the best deals before anyone else does.

- How to get into Business and First Class Fares for the same price as economy - strategies that actually work today - post 9-11.

- A big myth we'll shatter is that you don't need to be a travel industry expert to take advantage of the same discounts. While we did learn these strategies putting our time in as travel agents, tour operators, pilots and traveling freelancers - you won't have to and we'll show you how.

- How and where to get free airlines tickets, car rentals and airport parking.

As you can see from above the people that have written these books really are THE best cheap travel expert you will find. Someone else could be offering this as a service, but I can almost guarantee that their secrets (though they may be the same) would end up selling for five times as much as this little book costs. This is not only going to be cost efficient for you because the book is cheaper, but this is also going to be an option that you can download and keep on your computer forever. Stop wasting money and start traveling the way you want and to the places you want!

Business Class Travel Vs Economy - Is it Worth the Extra Money?

Very often clients ask us: What is the difference between economy and business class? Is it worth the price difference? In this article we will try to explain the (big) differences between traveling in coach and business class and describe the different amenities on different airlines.

No matter which airline, the basic differences are the same. In business class a passenger will enjoy a wider seat, a bigger seat pitch (leg room), electric seat controls and a bigger recline than a coach seat. These will vary between airlines and even between aircraft types of the same airline. For example, while Philippine airlines offers a seat recline of only sixty degrees, British Airway offers a flat bed seat.

Descriptions of business class seats can be confusing. A lie flat seat is not a flat bed for example. As a rule, a lie flat seat is a seat that can become flat but is on an angle. Among the Airlines that offer this kind of seat are: Eva air, Malaysian airlines, Lufthansa, and Swiss. A flat bed is as the name suggests a seat that becomes flat and horizontal. Airlines that offer this type of seat are British Airways, Air Canada, Cathay Pacific, and Air New Zealand among others. Some websites offer descriptions of the seats available on the different aircraft types by airline name.

The seating arrangement in the business class cabin is also different among airlines. On a British Airways business class cabin (also called Club world) the seating is arranged Head-to-toe, while Air Canada Air New Zealand and Cathay Pacific have a "herringbone" arrangement. The layout is such that each seat has direct aisle access. This can be an advantage for single travelers but an inconvenience to couples traveling together as there are no two adjacent seats. Seating maps are usually available on the airlines website. Free Advance seating is usually available.

Beyond the actual seat in business class, a passenger will enjoy a variety of extra services and amenities. The staff to passenger ratio is increased. Meals will be served on China with silverware accompanied by glassware. A larger variety of cocktails and drinks are served and usually a snack menu will be offered. Also available: larger personal TV screens with more viewing options, Laptop Power Ports and Amenity kits including socks, eye masks and toiletries. The washrooms might also be equipped with upscale toiletries.

For some passengers an important advantage in purchasing business class tickets is the priority in boarding and luggage. The luggage will be processed faster a fact that can be very important for business people in a hurry. The access to business class lounges is also a nice perk. The lounges usually offer free drinks, snacks and internet access. Some airlines serve full meals. An Arrival lounge might also be available permitting business travelers to refresh themselves before meetings. These lounges very often will offer a pressing service and showers.

A business class airline ticket will cost at least double than an economy class one. Is it worth the money? It all depends on the flight length, your personal budget and physical condition. If you can afford it or if even better, the ticket will be reimbursed by another company you will not regret it. Your flight will be comfortable and maybe even enjoyable. Bon Voyage!
