Where is your current wanderlust directed? When you visit a far off land you may not be able to stay but the experiences and memories you collect there are always accessible to you thereafter. When you see pictures or hear description of places you have traveled it is more than words or images, it is ground under your feet and a rekindling of sights and smells and how being there made you feel.
Flashback to the last flight reservation you made: you are about to complete your booking and then the flight insurance offer pops up on the page. The cautionary message usually in the vein of ‘protect yourself from unforeseen travel emergencies or interruptions by paying for travel insurance now.’ Certainly the idea of missing your flight and not only being unable to make your destination but being out your money is enough to prompt an immediate ‘yes’ from many travelers. Saying yes to travel insurance means you will pay 4-8% of the flight price per person on your reservation. Is travel insurance the only way to feel like your travels are protected?

Budget travelers might be getting even more choice when it comes to airlines in Europe. A new project is underway, and while much of it is still hush-hush, what we do know sounds very promising. Europe is a notoriously expensive destination, often reserved for “once in a lifetime” trips, but with more cost effective options coming into play, more people than ever will be able to get to that dream vacation after all. Here's what happening...
The giant, bustling, big-city international airports are all well and good, assuming you live within reasonable driving distance of one of those big cities. Smaller airports often stand in the long shadows cast by their bigger and older siblings, but they also have the potential to offer a very valuable option to those living way out in the suburbs, or in more rural areas of the country. The problem is, many major carriers prefer to stick with their already established hubs, and rarely venture outside of the big cities. But that’s all about to change. New York's Stewart International Airport is one such example of a smaller airport that could potentially be servicing a wide area. Residents in upstate PA, Northern Jersey, and much of the middle part of New York state could easily hop over to this airport – but until very recently, it may have been more hassle than it was worth. Now that Stewart international is opening up flights to Europe, things are going to be very different. Here's how...
Booking a trip today, and booking a trip 10 years ago are two completely different experiences. As the travel agents of the 80s and 90s gave way to the airfare search websites of the 2000s, we could all sense that changes were underway. But even the most frequent travelers among us probably couldn't envision the level of technology integration and convenience that modern travelers get to enjoy. Trips to Europe are no longer relegated to honeymooners or retirees only. Now, college students can use a number of apps on their smartphone to find affordable airfare, safe housing, restaurant recommendations, and read dozens of reviews on every aspect of their trip. Millennials don't have to wait for special coupons or flyers to arrive in the mail to alert them about a super affordable Caribbean cruise, instead they can just receive text alerts. Technology allows the travel industry to reach more people than it ever has before, and as a result, travelers are younger, better informed, and more tech savvy. Technology has forced the travel industry not only to step into the 21st century, but to embrace it wholeheartedly.
Not all economy class flights are created equal. Frequent travelers have hopped on and off enough planes to come up with their own list of "must haves." For some, the in-flight entertainment is massively important, while for others, it's all about the on-board meal. Whether your main complaint is legroom or unfriendly staff, we can probably all agree that we like the option of bringing a well packed carry-on with us on the plane. So what's up with this move by United Airlines then?
