Travel News for Week of October 14

Hi Everyone,

Last year on one of our tours we had someone who had lost her ID and needed to fly.   It was very stressful for her.    You can definitely fly domestically if you lose your ID but it is a bit more difficult.    If you arrive at the airport without your driver’s license you will need to get to the airport earlier than usual as you will be subjected to extra screening.  You’ll need to complete a release form giving information to allow the TSA to check your social security records.   You will then go through an interview to identify you.  Once you’ve been identified you will be allowed to go through the checkpoint.

If you are flying internationally, you cannot fly without proper identification.  If you lose your passport you will need to contact the nearest embassy/consulate.     We always recommend keeping a photo of our passport in a secure place or emailing it to yourself so that you can take that with you to the embassy/consulate.

If you are going on a cruise, CruiseCritic reminds us that there are certain items you must remember to pack:

  •  An adapter. If you are cruising outside of  North America/Caribbean, you will want to remember an adapter.   Some cruise ships have both US plugs and European but if you are staying any time in a hotel,  you must have an adapter.
  • C chargers.
  • Emergency Contact List.   Keep an emergency contact list in a place other than your cell phone.  If you become disabled, it may be difficult or impossible for someone else to get into your phone.
  • Proper ID.
  • Medications.
  • Sweater.   Even if you are going to the Caribbean, dining rooms on cruise ships are notoriously cold.
  • My favorite:  Ziploc bags.    They are useful for a number of things from wet bathing suits to leftover snacks.   We never leave home without some Ziplocs in our suitcase.

Hi Everyone,

Delta Airlines announced last week that they will add free inflight wi-fi to their fleet in the near future.    At the moment, Delta charges $16 to use the wi-fi.   No timetable has been set to accomplish this but Delta is moving in this direction immediately.

If you are thinking of flying for the holidays, don’t delay.   Fares for holiday travel have already increased and I suspect they will do nothing but get worse if there is any availability.    If you are searching for flights,  it is important to be flexible.  Recognize that there are certain days (like the day before Thanksgiving) that everyone wants to travel and plan to travel on a different day.   Recognize that fares are going to be high and now that most major airlines have increased baggage fees, that is going to add to the final price.    Try to use your points if possible.   The holidays are a great time to use points.   We just did exactly that.   Set an airfare alert on your computer as fares can and do change several time during the day.

Paris’s city centre is set to become car-free the first Sunday of every month.  Pedestrians, bikers, scooters, and will be permitted into the city centre from 10am-6pm.   There will be some leeway for residents and care givers but this is an effort to improver air quality and provide public spaces as part of the capital’s Paris Respire initiative.

Hi Everyone,

Disney Cruise Line will soon have a new home port.   Beginning in 2020, Disney will sail from New Orleans.    Disney will also return to Puerto Rico  and  to Hawaii!   The other Disney news is that beginning October 16, Disney World theme park tickets will be priced based on the date you choose to visit.   Apparently, Disney feels that pricing tickets by date will help to distribute attendance throughout the year.

If you are planning to travel to Venice in the near future, be aware that the locals are getting increasingly assertive regarding what they consider to be overtourism.   They are considering fines for sitting in the wrong area, eating pizza or other finger food outside of restaurants, and the latest proposal is a ban on carrying alcohol in the streets, even if it is bagged.    Whether or not any of these proposals actually pass is anyone’s guess but it is very apparent that the citizens of Venice have had enough of the crowds.

In one of the strangest travel news items this week,  a man was arrested at the Dublin Airport for trying to chase down his plane!    He was late for his flight and the boarding door was closed.   Somehow he got out on the taxiway and was running after the plane with his suitcase under his arm.   He was  trying to get the pilot to stop.   He was arrested.

The final language for an air travel bill called the FAA Reauthorization Act has been approved by the US House of Representatives and is expected to get final approval by the Senate.   The new bill would secure funding for the FAA for 5 years and establish new provisions on things like pets on planes, involuntary bumping, and research into minimum plane seat sizes.

Hi Everyone,

Epcot’s IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth will end in the second half of 2019.   Disney Parks Live Entertainment is already working to create a new show to debut immediately following the conclusion of IllumiNations, an EPCOT staple of 20 years.  Disney officials said they will continue the tradition of nightly entertainment on the World Showcase Lagoon. Visitors still have plenty of time to enjoy the attraction before it ends next summer.

This week has seen Delta, United, WestJet, JetBlue, and Air Canada raise their luggage fees to $30 for the first bag on domestic flights. It is a pretty safe bet that the remainder of the domestic airlines will follow suit. The lone holdout is Southwest which continues to allow you to check 2 bags for free.

In other airline news, United will change the number of boarding lanes from five to two, giving customers more space at boarding gates that are becoming increasingly crowded as airline traffic increases. United will now also let passengers know when exactly their flight is boarding through the United App and text messages for those passengers who provide their mobile phone numbers at time of booking. They are hoping to alleviate the congestion in front of gates during the boarding process.  Not sure if this will work, but if it does it would be awesome not to have to fight your way through the crowds to board.

Hi Everyone,

We just finished a great river cruise called Castles Along the Rhine.    This Amsterdam to Basel cruise is an amazing trip down the River Rhine.   Our first stop was Cologne where  we had a wonderful tour of the city and its amazing Cathedral.   We then stopped in the historic town of Koblenz where we had a choice of a walking tour or a visit to the Marksburg Castle.   Wednesday was an amazing day as we sailed along  the stretch of river known as the Romantic Rhine and saw castle after castle.  While enjoying the scenery on a brighter fall day, our crew was cooking up snacks of sausage, sauerkraut,  and pretzels along with plenty of good German brew.   We then went on to the beautiful town of Rudesheim and  a wine tasting at the beautiful Castle Vollards.   Thursday was a special day as we went to vinegar tasting.   You may not think this would be special but it was amazing.   We were then off to a cooking class where a small group of 8 of us cooked a proper German meal (and ate it). Friday was spent in the beautiful town of Strasbourg where we strolled through Petite France and marveled at the soaring Cathedral.   Others in our group went off to the Black Forest.   Saturday we had a choice of visiting 2 Alsatian Wine Villages or  a Colmar walking tour-both good choices.  We opted for an little independent stroll through the beautiful village of Breisach, Germany.    This morning we said goodbye to our shipmates and crew and started the journey back to the USA.

Here is an interesting article from Budget Travel this week: A recent study conducted by Finnish and British researchers reveals that the plastic bins used to inspect personal items at airport security have as much of a 50 percent chance of carrying the viruses that cause upper respiratory infections. Based on swabs taken at Helsinki Airport at three points during the 2015-2016 flu season, the surface of as many as one of every two bins, which are typically handled with a strong, open-palm grip, contain rhinovirus or adenovirus, the culprits that cause cold- and flu symptoms. This is a much higher rate of contamination than toilet seats in airports because bathrooms are cleaned much more frequently. But there is a glint of good news to come out of all this. The scientists write in the paper, which was published in the BioMed Central Infectious Diseases journal, says, “This knowledge helps in the recognition of hot spots for contact transmission risk, which could be important during an emerging pandemic threat or severe epidemic.” Meantime, be sure to wash your hands after you get through security and, out of respect to your fellow passengers, maybe wash them before the TSA check, too. Now, we’d like to know who’s studying the carpet square in the body scan machine that many passengers stand on barefoot?

We are in the air as I write this so our normal blog will resume next week.

Testimonial

Words can’t describe the incredible beauty of the canyons, mountains and other interesting areas we visited on this trip. The trip was well planned and very organized. This was our second trip with Fuller Travel and there were no disappointments on either trip. We look forward to traveling with the Fuller group again.

~ Bruce and Sophie, Lansing

Passport

By | Travel Tips
  • Check to make sure your passport is valid for all countries you will visit.
  • Many countries require your passport to be valid during and beyond the length of your stay (usually a minimum of six months), so check your itinerary.
  • It’s a good idea to carry an additional passport photo in case your passport is lost or stolen and you need a replacement while on vacation.
  • Email yourself a copy of the front page of your passport. That page will be a big help if you need to replace a passport.
  • Continue to monitor the ever-changing passport rules.
  • Remember that you are supposed to carry your passport with you at all times. A money belt worn under your clothing is a good place to carry your passport.

Fuller Travel rocks! Lynn and Skip Fuller are fantastic! My wife and I have traveled with Fuller Travel twice. A tour of Italy in 2010 and an Alaskan land/sea cruise in 2011. Both were “awesome,” thanks to Fuller Travel. We will fondly remember those two trips for the rest of our lives! We highly recommend making your vacation plans with Fuller Travel. We look forward to traveling with them in the future.

Packing Tips

By | Travel Tips

Most people pack too much when traveling. The following may help you when trying to make packing decisions:

  • Lay out all your items before packing so you can reevaluate while looking at everything.
  • Color-coding your clothing will help you mix and match.
  • Pack items such as socks, belts in your shoes to save space.
  • Pack items tightly so they don’t move around and wrinkle.
  • Dry cleaning bags placed between layers of clothing help minimize wrinkling.
  • Rolling rather than folding items helps to save space and minimize wrinkling.
  • Pack toiletries in zip lock bags to avoid spills.
  • Remember that individual containers containing more than 3 oz. of liquid must be checked.
  • Do not pack medication, money, jewelry, or travel documents in your checked luggage.
  • Pack sunscreen and insect repellant. It will be much cheaper to buy that here than at your destination.
  • Take a few zip lock bags for carrying wet items or for keeping things dry.
  • Pack an extra pair of glasses or carry your prescription with you.
  • Make sure your name, address, and telephone number is inside your suitcase. If attaching a luggage tag to the outside, make sure it is a tag with a cover to conceal your personal information.
  • Lock your luggage with TSA approved locks to prevent tampering. It’s important to have the ability to lock your luggage while touring, not just for the flight.
  • If traveling overseas, make sure you know what type of adapter you will need for the electrical outlet.
  • If you have food allergies, carry a card (preferably in the language of the country you are going to visit) to alert restaurant staff.

Fuller Travel “spoils you”.  To say “you get your money’s worth” is putting it mildly. Fuller’s planning provides one with a trip packed with the perfect mix of adventure, sightseeing, learning (if one is interested) and “surprises” that we never encountered in travels through other agencies.  It is no secret what is at the “top” of most lists, and Fuller knows and “will not rest” until they find the best bathrooms (yes), great hotel rooms, and great meals where one would least expect it….in the “middle of nowhere”. Thank you Fuller Travel!

In August, we traveled through Fuller Travel Agency to Alaska with a large group of people. Lynn and Skip Fuller were great to travel with!  We never had to worry about any arrangements, they took care of everything, with top notch service. Each day they touched base with us to be sure we were having a great time and to see if there was anything further they could do for us. The entire trip was wonderful, all of their arrangements were fantastic. We highly recommend Fuller Travel Agency and will use them again without a doubt.

~ Cindy and Floyd

Minimize Jet Lag

By | Travel Tips
  • Avoid caffeine, alcohol, and sugar drinks. Drink plenty of water to avoid dehydration.
  • Try to sleep if flying overnight instead of staying awake to watch the in-flight movies.
  • Take along a comfortable travel pillow as many airlines are no longer offering pillows to their customers.
  • Regularly stretch and walk around the plane. This is particularly important on longer flights.
  • When you arrive at your destination, try to stay awake until evening. The best way to do that is to stay active.
