How to Avoid Common Travel Surcharges

READ MORE

 
A recent Trip Advisor survey found 1 in 3 travelers expects to spend more on travel this year. With airlines raking in record profits and hotels increasing their rates, it’s getting harder to know the true cost of your trip until you look at your post-vacation credit card statement. The reason being is that travel operators know that you decide whether you can afford a trip based the posted online fare.

If you could see inside the mind of a travel operator, you would see they are trying to increase their profit without increasing their posted fare. That's why you’re seeing an increase in hidden ‘discretionary’ surcharges and fees.

CLICK HERE to see me on CTV discussing how to avoid common travel surcharges. This was a special interview for me as I am a big fan of CFL star Quarterback Henry Burris who interviewed me. Read on after you watch it as I do not have time to cover all the details on live TV.

COMMON TRAVEL SURCHARGES

Checked Bag Fees: Airlines are raking in record profits, largely on the back of surcharges. Last year, checked-bag fees alone generated upwards of 3.5 billion dollars which generally apply to economy class flights. If you have elite status with the airline you are flying with, you may get a free pass to check your luggage at no charge even when flying economy.

Short of the above options, luggage allowances are generally restricted to one complimentary carry-on bag. But there is a clever way you can double up on your carry on luggage at no-charge. If you bring a second carry on bag is one like a 
Jaktogo luggage jacket, you carry can it through the airport just as any other carry-on bag. When the time comes to board the plane, the bag unfolds into a jacket can you wear as you board the plane. Once embarked, remove the jacket and fold it back into a bag. Presto!

Jaktogo has distinct luggage jackets for men and women with a trench coat version and a poncho style dress. Fashionistas should know these jackets won’t make the cover of Vogue, but there is no doubting their practically with their dual sided pockets big enough for even your laptop and shoes.

If wearing a luggage jacket isn’t for you, all major airlines are affiliated with credits cards that offer travel benefits when you pay for your flight using the partner credit card. For a list of credit cards that offer a free checked-bag benefit. To find the best one for you,
click here and scroll down to 'Credit Card Travel Benefits'.

If all else fails, prioritize one of the few remaining airlines that does not charge checked-bag fees.
This list breaks down luggage allowances and checked-bag policies by airline.

Hotel Internet Charges: Isn't it ironic the most expensive hotels are also the ones that charge the highest internet fees? My rule of thumb is to prioritize hotels that include free Wi-Fi and continental breakfasts in the base rate. These are generally hotels 3-star hotels like the Holiday Inn Express and Best Western Plus.

Increasingly hotels are dangling free Wi-Fi as an incentive for you to sign up to their loyalty program. For example, you will get free Wi-Fi as a perk for being a loyalty program member with either Marriott, Hyatt, the Ritz Carleton, Hilton Double Tree and Homewood Suites. It’s always free to sign-up to loyalty programs, and since it only takes a few minutes to do, there is no reason to ever pay internet fees in these hotels. Consumer Reports compiled a list of Wi-Fi policies by hotel chain which you can view 
by clicking here. 

Avoid Expensive Taxis: Anytime you think you’ll need to hail a cab at your destination, before leaving on your trip, visit the website of your destination airport and it will have a page will all your transportation options from the airport including:
  • Many airports are directly linked to subways, trains and public transit.
  • Shuttle buses which may include free hotel shuttles and city wide shuttles that stop at all the major hotels.
  • Uber is often an inexpensive alternative to taxis. Only Uber does not operate in all cities, and even where it does, Uber is not allowed to pick up passengers at a number of airports. You should also be aware that Uber surges it's pricing when demand is high.
  • Average taxi fares from the airport to various parts of the city.

No More Roaming Charges: The best roaming plans often are not the ones you see on TV. For example, lefrenchmobile.com offers visitors to Europe roaming plans comparable to what locals pay. They send you a SIM card with a permanent number you can use every time you visit Europe. You can data only roaming plans starting at $3/day in the U.S. and $5/day in Mexico with roammobility.com. To get setup, Roam Mobility mails you a SIM card ($10 fee) with a number that’s yours to keep. To activate your plan, visit their website prior to your trip and enter your arrival and departure date and time.

 

For Americans traveling abroad, T-Mobile’s ‘Simple Choice Plan’ is hands-down the best roaming plan for travelers. For more information, Click Here for my article ‘Stay Connected Abroad – Without the Roaming Fees.

Credit Card Travel Benefits: Since all travel is booked online, you have to have a credit card. I recommend traveling with two credit cards where you keep one on your person and one in your luggage. This way, if you lose one of them, you won’t find yourself in a panic.

Nearly every major travel operator is affiliated with a credit card that offers great travel perks. For a list of credit cards that waive common travel surcharges such as the ones below, 
Click Here and scroll to ‘CREDIT CARD SIGN-UP BONUSES’:

  • Complimentary checked-bag
  • Waived foreign transaction fees which average 1-3% of purchases made abroad
  • Pay for taxies with points
  • Free access to airport lounge

Finally... remember to pack snacks and headphones so that you don’t have to overpay for them on your flight.

Inexpensive Alternatives to Hotels

READ MORE

 

 


Hotels are as expensive as they have ever been.
Ironically, at the same time we’ve never had more economical alternatives to choose from – largely due to the rise of the sharing economy. When you think of inexpensive alternatives to hotels, the first things that come to mind are likely hostels, Airbnb and Couchsurfing, but those just scratch the surface of so many other options for you to consider. 

CLICK HERE to see me discuss these inexpensive alternatives to hotels on Breakfast TV. The article below has more details than the TV interview as time constraints keep me from delving into all the details on live TV:

1. Home Swapping is mutually exchanging places with others for your holiday. This can be as simple and as safe as exchanging places with friends and family you know and trust. Hotels are often not a viable option for families who need bedrooms for the kids. That’s why I recommend families exchange homes with other families that have the same number of kids in the same age range. This way you’ll have the right number of bedrooms and toys that are age appropriate.

Whether you are seeking a nearby escape or to travel abroad, home swapping is an equally viable option. City dwellers are looking to get to the lake on weekends whereas those in the country want to visit the city. The biggest concerns I hear about home swapping are: 

  1. The thought of others sleeping in your master bedroom: To address this, keep the master bedroom out of bounds and guests can stay in the guest room.
  2. Your house guests could damage something: Since no money is being exchanged, your home insurance will likely cover anything that may get damaged.

HomeExchange.com is the largest home swapping website and was featured in the hit movie ‘The Holiday’ staring Cameron Diaz and Kate Winslet. Home Exchange has over 65,000 listings in 150 countries. You can review member’s home swapping history and read reviews about prospective swappers from fellow swappers.


The only cost to using homeexchange.com is a $150 annual membership fee. But if you act quickly, you can get a FREE 1-year membership by being one of the next 20 people to buy ‘Stop Dreaming Start Traveling: The Ultimate Guide to Traveling More & Spending Less.’ To claim this special incentive, simply email a copy of your receipt to: info@breakthetravelbarrier.com.

2. House Sitting is a form of voluntourism where you get free accommodations for taking care of house duties while the owners are away. There is a large demand for pet sitters where travelers are looking for caring trustworthy people to take care of their pets while away. If you work in a trusted position, such as a teacher, house cleaner or maid, you will stand out above people who don’t have that experience.

The most reputable house sitting website is
TrustedHouseSitters.com. Some of the most active house sitters are veterinarians who can certainly afford to pay their way, but enjoy caring for pets.


3. Every summer, thousands of University Dormitories have empty rooms. Many look to offset their operating costs in the summer by renting out rooms from May through August. The best deal I have found was a bed and breakfast at the University of London for just $35£/night. This is hands down the best deal in London which is just a few stops on the tube from the West end theater district.

Before booking your summer accommodations, visit the website of any college or university at your destination to see if they have rooms for rent. You can also browse the listing posted at
UniversityRooms.com which is a website some universities use to post available dormitory vacancies.


4. Camping is part of the summer travel experience. We tend to associate camping with nearby road trips and fail to consider how camping abroad can improve the affordability of a long-haul trip. For instance, if you visit Europe during shoulder season (spring or fall), you can access over 700 campgrounds in Europe and Morocco at a flat rate of 16€/night when you get a 30€ membership with CampingCheque.com.


5.
Timeshares routinely offer steep discounts to stay in their fully furnished condo style accommodations in return for attending a 60-90 minute no obligation timeshare ownership presentation. To qualify, you will need to meet a minimum income requirement which varies by travel operator.
I’ve been using this strategy for more than 10 years now to stay in luxury condos everywhere from Puerto Vallarta to Sedona and Whistler.

An easy way to get invitations to timeshare ownership presentations by attending travel shows and vacation ownership shows. Nearly all exhibitors offer prize giveaways which I always sign up for. Although I have never won the prize being offered, I always get a follow up call offering me an inexpensive stay in return for attending an ownership presentation.

Stay Connected Abroad - Without the Roaming Fees

READ MORE

 


Have you ever had a post-holiday phone bill shocker? I’ll never forget mine which was to the tune of $2,108. Fortunately, in the near future roaming fees will become obsolete and travelers will have the freedom to connect to any carrier worldwide as easily as we connect to Wi-Fi today. Rates will be comparable to what locals pay be it for long term connections or a quick half hour connection. Until this day comes, we need to do a little dancing to stay connected abroad at a fair price. But you'll be glad to know that this dance isn't very difficult, and the steps you need to take are all here.

For starters, I am amazed at how easy it is to get by strictly using Wi-Fi while traveling. Even in under developed countries, airports, touristy areas, restaurants, hotels, cafes, lounges and libraries are increasingly offering free Wi-Fi. I just returned from the Philippines and relied on Wi-Fi the entire trip and did not feel cut off from the online world at all. 

Before you leave on your trip, simply turn off your primary carrier and roaming on your phone and tablet. Then simply restrict your communications to when you have free Wi-Fi connections.

To find free Wi-Fi, there is an app called Wi-Fi Finder that shows free Wi-Fi hotspots on a map. The app is a download so you can even find hotspots near you even when you are offline. One word of caution about public Wi-Fi connections, hackers can view your online activity if you do not take precautions. That's why you need to:

  • Validate that the Wi-Fi connection you are connecting to is authentic (hackers can setup fake networks with seemingly legitimate names)
  • Protect your online activity from unauthorized viewing with applications like VPN (Virtual Private Network) and Easysurf
  • Restrict your online activity on public Wi-Fi connections

I also suggest you unlock your smartphone. Your carrier can confirm whether or not it is unlocked and if it isn't, your carrier will usually unlock it for a nominal a fee (mine cost $50 to unlock and it was well worth it).

The benefit to having an unlocked phone is that your smartphone can accept SIM cards from alternate carriers. If you cannot unlock your phone, you will need to buy or rent a phone from a local carrier if you hope to get a local plan. Pre-paid SIM cards are sold at most mobile retail outlets and at many convenience stores. They come with a local phone number and also cap your financial commitment to what you pre-paid.

When I do this, I leave a voice message on my regular line before leaving for my trip saying that the best way to reach me while I am away is by e-mail.

 
For U.S. travelers, 
T-Mobile’s Simple Choice Plan offers unlimited text and data in 120 countries and even has mobile plans for certain cruise ships and ferries. As far as plans go, this is the hands down winner.

If you are visiting Europe, LeFrenchMobile offers a great value multi-lingual prepaid SIM card they mail to you before your trip. Rates are posted on their homepage at lefrenchmobile.com.  

For Canadians visiting the U.S. and Mexico, roammobility.com will mail you a SIM card for $20 CDN with a local phone number that’s yours to keep. Before your trip, purchase a pre-paid plan online then insert the SIM into your phone when you arrive. Rates are comparable to plans offered by local carriers and you can extend or top up your plan anytime from anywhere by going to their website. I love that all my apps, data and pictures are still available on my smartphone when I swap in my roammobility SIM card, but I cannot guarantee that this will be the case with all smartphones.

To get the best value for your dollar, stick strictly with a data plan. Between Skype, social media and email, there is no need to pay for talk and text while traveling when data gives you all three.

Before swapping SIM cards, always ask the mobile carrier what APN setting (access point name) must be on your phone in order for it to work. You can change the APN setting in your settings menu but may have to ask your phone provider how to do it as functionality varies from phone to phone.

There you have it! Now your friends at the office can live vicariously through selfies and pictures of your food. Best of all, you can now stay connected abroad and not have to worry about roaming fees.

Against the Odds - Stop Dreaming Start Traveling Hits Best Seller List

READ MORE

                                                        



                                                           AGAINST THE ODDS

"Less than 1% of books have a chance of being stocked in an average bookstore.” 


First...
 A few things you need to know about Amazon’s Best Seller ranking system:

Every hour, Amazon tallies total book sales by category and refreshes its best seller list based on total sales that hour. For a book is to remain at #1 for any meaningful period, it has to outsell comparative books every single hour (unlikely for even for the best of books). This opens the door to manipulation where authors can (and do) stockpile purchases in batches to spike book sales and temporarily land a Best Seller rating.

Now, 'Stop Dreaming... Start Traveling' was already getting lots of publicity before literary heavyweight Jack Canfield shared this with his more than 1 million social media followers: 

Shortly after Jack’s shout out, 'Stop Dreaming... Start Traveling' shot up to #4 in Budget Travel. Knowing that Amazon rankings refresh every hour, I took a screenshot of the ranking knowing it might not stay there for long. Later that weekend, I got home Sunday evening from a wonderful weekend away when I turned on my computer not only to find the paperback version of Stop Dreaming Start Traveling ranked #1 in budget travel, the e-book version was ranked #6 on the same list at the same time!


This is the first time I have ever seen two versions of the same book in the top 10 at the same time. Both versions were ahead of Nomadic Matt's 'How to Travel the World on $50 a Day' which was briefly on the New York Times Best Seller List, and neck-and-neck with Lonely Planet's travel guides for South America and Southeast Asia holding the #2 and #3 spots respectively.

Again, Amazon bestseller ratings are by no means an indicator of long-term performance, but knowing how crowded the Budget Travel space is, and how much travel information is available online for free, this is a sign that our ultra-economical travel message is delivering results. 

Next month, Stop Dreaming Start Traveling travels to LS Travel airport bookstores where competition is fierce and space is at a premium.

Five independent book critics with Readers Favorite had this to say about Stop Dreaming Start Traveling (You can also read their reviews posted here):

Tracy Slowiak:
"Wow! An absolute treasure trove of information for those who love to travel. Amazing tips and advice on how to get the most out of your travel dollar with insight into the travel industry, ideas for how to live like a local instead of a tourist, and the very best ways to travel in such a way that you'll be able to travel several times a year for the same price or less than you might have once spent on just one annual vacation. This book is a must-have for any travel bug out there.

I loved, loved, loved this book! I've always loved travel, and typically start planning my next trip almost immediately after returning home from a vacation. The main issue I've always had has been affording all the travel I want. My dream travel list is so long, I had pretty much resigned myself to the idea that there was no way I'd ever get to all the places I want to in a single lifetime. Russell Hannon's book has given me so many ideas on how I will be able visit each place, and more and for less than I ever imagined.

Russell's focus on applying LEAN principles to travel is simply ingenious and extremely effective. I highly recommend Stop Dreaming Start Traveling: The Ultimate Guide to Traveling More and Spending Less. It is a truly invaluable guide for any reader who loves to travel or any reader who wants to travel more than they already do. I certainly hope that author Russell is already working on his next travel-related guide. I, for one, will be in line to get it once it is released!"

Jack Magnus:
"Stop Dreaming Start Traveling: The Ultimate Guide to Traveling More and Spending Less is a non-fiction travel/tourism book written by Russell Hannon, a self-styled Ultra-Economical Travel Expert who loves to travel and has developed techniques for making those trips to exotic and faraway places work within the tightest budgets. He sets out his information in a methodical step-by-step manner, beginning with compelling arguments for letting the “travel bug” into your system, accessing the travel benefits you already have or can get that will enable you to travel without destroying your budget, building a foolproof travel plan which allows for incidentals and unexpected glitches, and tips on getting the funds for your next adventure and afterwards. He concludes with tips for saving while on your trip, finding fun and inexpensive activities on holiday, and making sure you’re protected in case of an emergency. Hannon includes appendices which give the reader essential links, a Dream Travel Planning Form and references for further reading.

This is a non-fiction travel/tourism book, a well-written mine of information geared to get even the most skeptical stay-at-home reader to seriously consider taking that first step towards their own travel adventures. His ideas make good sense, and the links he provides for apps, accommodation options, and the best prices on airfare are invaluable -- and not just for when you are planning a trip. I was most impressed by his advice on how to arrange world trips, or at least, trips with multiple stops using a single destination ticket, and his ideas for funding your travel adventures as a travel writer. The book is chock-full of great ideas on living well and frugally while seeing the world at the same time. His BreaktheTravelBarrier.com website continues the conversation and is an invaluable resource as well. Stop Dreaming Start Traveling: The Ultimate Guide to Traveling More and Spending Less is highly recommended."

Chris Fischer:
"In a completely great new guide in the travel genre, Stop Dreaming Start Traveling: The Ultimate Guide to Traveling More and Spending Less is an essential training manual for those who travel a lot or just want to. Author Russell Hannon has done a fantastic job at applying lean management principles to travel planning and travel in general. Using this unique mindset, he challenges travelers to think about travel in a different way. Instead of focusing on a once a year travel blowout, by thinking effectively and efficiently, the reader just might be able to travel several, even many times throughout the year for a fraction of the cost they would have thought. Travel as a lifestyle instead of as a vacation seems to be the theme of his work, and it's something that many travelers are already thinking.

I found Stop Dreaming Start Traveling to be simply fascinating. I love travel, but as a man with a middle class income and a young family, I thought that anything other than a standard once a year vacation was pretty much out of the question. By applying the principles that Russell Hannon sets forth in his brilliant work, however, I truly believe that there will definitely be more travel in store for me and my family. This book is an absolute must-have for any reader who loves travel, wants to travel more, and wants to save money. Take my advice and buy Stop Dreaming Start Traveling: The Ultimate Guide to Traveling More and Spending Less by Russell Hannon as soon as you possibly can. You won't regret it!"

Roy T. James:
"Stop Dreaming…Start Traveling by Russell Hannon begins by extolling the benefits of travel and the freedom it offers to everyone. The book explains the process through a seven-step ladder of People, Means, Knowledge, Creativity, Flexibility, Adaptability and Pure Luck. And by adapting to lean principles, one can visit expensive destinations at a fraction of their current cost. Warnings as well as tips for each such explanation make this advice comprehensive for planning one's journey. A plethora of resources like addresses for home swapping, car rentals, inexpensive accommodation, hotels and flights, agencies for travel funding etc are also included as appendices. How to choose an appropriate destination for your interests while keeping your resources in mind is covered by this book.

Travel takes one closer to one's destination, and Stop Dreaming…Start Traveling by Russell Hannon takes one closer to travel. Russell begins by explaining how easy it is to save money, and how that can eventually add to one's enjoyment, making the reader look out in earnest for the lean travel techniques offered here. And he answers almost all questions one can ask while thinking of saving one's expenses, or related subjects. The book also speaks about how to make money while traveling. This is a well thought out work, and almost all the questions I could think of while pondering on a trip were easily answered in these pages. I wish it had an index to help me travel through the book."

Mamta Madhavan:
"Stop Dreaming Start Traveling: The Ultimate Guide to Traveling More and Spending Less by Russell Hannon is an engaging travel book that covers all aspects of travel and how to save money while traveling. The book covers everything from planning to budgeting to cost saving advice and safety, making it an excellent tool for all those who are planning to travel. The book tells everyone to seize the opportunity to travel and make their lives extraordinary ad meaningful. For all those travel lovers for whom cost is a barrier in making travel happen, this definitely is a must-read as it will help them travel anywhere for a lot less than they think.

The book has many tips, ideas, techniques, and websites helpful to people planning to travel. The quiz on what type of a traveler you are is interesting and I enjoyed that bit a lot. The author covers the topic expansively and extensively, anticipating every query that will come to mind while planning to travel. 'A journey of a thousand miles must begin with a single step.' This quote by Lao Tzu is apt for this book. The dream travel plan by the author will amaze readers and change the travel destiny of all readers. The dream travel plan also tells readers that they need not omit expensive destinations from their list. The tips, advice and techniques are simple and useful for planning a trip."
