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.
