Positive Thinking

Positive as a noun, is much stronger than as an adverb, thinking positively!

The last few newsletters were a lot of copy and paste! Why reinvent the wheel, right? Most have been about the ‘troubles’ with travel these days. As they are not going to go away any time soon, let us plan and avoid these troubles!! No, the answer is not to just stay home. Because we all need to travel, to rejuvenate.

The market, airline and TSA staffing, parts and repairs, and the weather are just a few of the ‘troubles’. We cannot change them, but we can plan around them. The market, maybe plan for a less expensive holiday. Staff/weather/repairs we have no control, so we plan with built in flexibility. If a flight is cancelled, we can still get to where we need to be. Just allow enough time!

What if an hour connection needs to be two or more? Especially if the second flight has limited options. Time is the operative word. What was, is no longer! May be two days’ prior for a cruise or organized tour. Maybe less connecting flights and pay the extra for the non-stop!

Think what is the worst case scenario and plan for it! Then if it does not happen, which it probably will not, you are good to go. Having me at your fingertips, is your best option when the ‘troubles’ occur. I not only have access to your flight, which I booked, but to all fights and carriers. It only takes me moments to switch from one carrier to the other, or to find you a hotel if you get stranded.

The best option to assist with the ‘troubles’ is insurance. Insurance covers trip cancellations, trip delay, missed connection, baggage delay or lost, emergency medical and more. If you want to skip most cancellation coverage, like for an airline ticket that can be exchanged, then all the above coverage is most reasonable.

Planning and peace of mind are well worth it!

So let us rejuvenate our spirits with wonderful travel plans. Sometimes the planning is the best part! I am here for you, just email or call straight away!
