• Christmas in Paris– Words for "Sale" from The Women's Travel Group

    We are generally not a shopping group but sales/soldes can turn even the most reluctant heads.  As we will be in Paris over Christmas and post Christmas, those coming will enjoy the sales. European stores are different from ours: they only have sales twice a year.  So when you see these words in French, go for it. Here is the link again for the trip, or ask us to mail you the information:

    Soldes (Sales)

    Prix Reduit (Price reduced)

    Reduction (Reduced)

    Super Soldes and Soldes Massifs (Hugh sales)

    Destockage (Getting rid of all merchandise)

    If you wish to save more money, ask about discount cards for tourists; first ask your hotel, then find the Welcome Desk at the larger department stores.…

    $200 in India is a huge savings if you combo it with a guaranteed room share on the perfect trip. We found that women want a higher level of accommodation than some other tours offer and fine tuning on a daily basis. Why?

    We are not kids anymore and understand that comfort at night is key to enjoyment during the day.
    —Yes, we want top notch bathrooms.
    —We need large rooms for our stuff and eye sight, and —Why not have a comfy reading chair and extra lighting?…

  • Your Worst Travel Companion

    How will you know if a friend will make a good travel companion? For short periods of time we are all on our good behavior.  For a week or two, who knows?

    Five red flags to look for:

    Always sees the empty glass.

    Is opinionated on things they know little about.

    Is inflexible.

    Uses the word ‘I’ all the time.

    Is a great fashionista.

    Going in a group with other women, helps dilute your friend out, but why do we even have these five

    red flags?…

     
  • Airlines Ready to Bash Us Again

    Airlines Ready to Bash Us Again

     

     

     

     

     

     

    In the last years airline fuel dropped 24% and fuel surcharges have not dropped 1%. So what is going on here?

    Airlines are profiting from keeping surcharges which were as high as $600 round trip NY-London. Airlines now call these ‘international fees’ but they are the same old fuel surcharges.

    I have flown American on  Business Class to Mexico City from NY many times.…

The International Air Transport Association (IATA) recommends a smaller bag of 21.5 x 13.5 x 7.5 inches. Not all airlines will concur with the new standard, but here are 5 things you should never pack:

    Money, jewelry (even good junk jewelry), electronics, medicine and your printed trip information. Especially if you are traveling solo.…
