TRAVEL RESERVATION TIPS FOR A HASSLE-FREE TRIP

Start with the basics. Anyone who wants to enjoy a hassle-free trip has to start with the basic concern of any traveler - how to handle travel reservations. Here are a number of tips that may help:

§ Decide on a travel plan - specific destination, how many days, what activities, etc. The attention given to this first step will ensure smooth sailing in making the travel arrangements.

§ If the destination is a foreign country, make sure all information that would be needed in making reservations are on hand.

Airline Reservations

§ If booking on online, use a reservation site where ticket prices for all airlines are shown so a comparison can be readily seen. If booking for more than one person, check also the ticket price for both a single passenger and multiple passengers. Some airlines quote different prices.

§ If notification of your reservation is done by e-mail, make sure that the ticket price quoted is the same. Sometimes,


some airlines claim the airfare booked earlier is no long available.

Hotel Reservations

§ Ask if the rate is a flat rate or per person. Ask how many beds are in the room and what the size is. Make sure to finalize a rate before getting off the phone.

§ Ask about tax rates that would be added.

§ Will breakfast be included with the price of the room? What time is it served and what is included.

§ Are there guarantee and cancellation policies? Most hotels require guarantee for reservation with a credit card. Will they ask a check deposit?

§ If this is a standard reservation, make sure there is a confirmation number.
