When booking a flight you don't want to book only a couple days before and miss out on the best deals. Prices on tickets change on average every 4-5 days on a average of $33 up or down. In these nest few paragraphs I have complied tips on tricks on how you can save money as well as when the best time to book a flight is.
The most important thing to remember is don't wait till the last week. Prices usually go up about 25% during that time. According to cheapAir international flights...."stay fairly flat for a few months, then start to creep up slowly, until abut 90 days before departure when the place of starts to accelerate." The cheapest time to book a flight is within five and a half months and one month prior from departure. Think about it as hitting the sweet spot, trying to book a flight 7 months in advanced you wont get good prices and waiting till the last minute you will get very expensive prices but getting it right in the middle is when the price will be at it's best.
In closing some of the last tips I have is always look for deals and savings! Within the 6 months of looking always be checking up for deals and special sales your airline may be having at the time. You wont always get the cheapest flight or the best deals but there are always ways to get the long end of the stick. The very last and maybe the most important tip I have is when is the best day to book a flight? This always depends on the airline and where you are traveling to but the cheapest day and time is Tuesday at midnight. You can save about 6% on your flights. I hope these short tips can help you next time your booking a flight!
Elbows off the table? Clean your plate like your mother taught you? Not so fast. Food etiquette varies widely from culture to culture and can sometimes appear to have no rhyme or reason. In the Middle East, India, and parts of Africa, keeping your elbows off the table isn’t enough—you’re not supposed to touch anything at the table with your left hand (it’s considered dirty). In France, it’s considered more polite to put your slice of bread on the table than to rest it on your plate. Slurp soup in Japan and no one will bat an eye. Slurp soup in China and you’ll be the Ugly American. In China, eating rice with chopsticks is expected, but in Thailand it’s considered inappropriate (there, you should use a spoon). In Brazil and Chile, don’t eat anything with your hands (no, not even fries). In Italy or Cuba, putting your cutlery on the right side of your plate means you’re done with the meal. But in Spain, you’d place it on your plate to indicate that you’re finished. Clean your plate in Ecuador and you’ll be given seconds, but in Peru cleaning your plate is just considered polite. And remember whenever you sit down to eat in a group outside the U.S., there’s a good chance you should wait for either the host or the eldest person at the table to start eating before you tuck into what’s on your plate.
Traveling can be stressful even when going on short trips. When packing a large suitcase it only adds to your stress. Have you ever considered packing just a carry on? Well here is how!
The typical airline will allow you a bag that is up to 45 inches total after adding all of the dimensions. Carry your electronics in a messenger bag or backpack and leave your other carry on for all of your essentials. For women, wear the jewelry that you must have so you do not have to pack it.
For clothing, try to wear what is heaviest while traveling. Shoes tend to take up the most space so bring pairs that are versatile. Jeans can be worn three times easily and shirts twice. Take the basics and add a scarf or statement necklace to make an outfit look different. Rolling all of your items is the most efficient way to pack all of your belongings into a confined space. Use the provided hotel toiletries so you do not have to take your own.
Try it out! Who knows maybe you will continue to pack this way. Have fun.
The Amazing Thailand world-famous attractions have been well documented on television, are used as backdrops in several Hollywood movies and crop up again and again in modern fiction. Still, to witness the Grand Palace in person or to watch a Railey Beach sunset or even to approach Phi Phi Don for the first time is guaranteed to send a shiver up the spine of even a hardened traveller and the frisson of passing by a limestone monolith in Phang Nga Bay is unforgettable.
From the north of Thailand in Chiang Mai to the lush southern province of Krabi you’ll be charmed and even shocked by the raw beauty of Thailand.
