Better M60 Update Each Friday, we’re featuring a reader-submitted tip as our Travel Tip of the Day. This week’s tip comes from reader E, who improved Tuesday’s tip on NYC’s M60 bus by correcting a mistake I made with some good New York knowledge: “M60 is not an express bus (which costs $6.50 as of 3/22/15). It’s a […]

Explore the Lounge Before Ordering Food Here’s a tip for anyone with access to a lounge, like an American Airlines Admirals Club—by way of a club membership, the Citi AAdvantage Executive World EliteTM MasterCard, a guess pass, or simply the day rate ($50): Don’t go immediately to their bar or deli and purchase food. Instead, walk around and […]

Don’t Ride the Luggage Carousel I’ve written before about the importance of staying away from the baggage carousel as you wait for your bags to show up.

Greyhound Bus

Stand to the Side as You Wait You’d think this is common sense—but it amazes me, when I travel or at home, to see people standing in the middle of the doorway on a train, bus or even elevator as they wait to get on. Stand to the side and let people get off before […]

http://www.visitbelgium.com/

Go to Europe, Prepared I’ve been saying recently that now—and this summer—is the time to go to Europe, as the exchange rate is now an incredible €1.00 EUR = $1.08 USD (here’s the up-to-the-minute rate at XE.com). It’s predicted that the Euro will be on par with the dollar by the summer, but compared to what […]
