Hi! Anybody here flew with Aer Lingus? We are booked with them to Barcelona - cheapest rate we could find during our travel dates but would like to know your experiences. Thank you!

We normally head to a different island in the Caribbean for our yearly summer vacation (just the wife and me), but with Zika, that's pretty much a no-go. Thought about Vancouver and potentially throwing in Banff (though the hotels are getting booked FAST!!!!), and while this is still definitely in p...

toronto

Back in late October, I booked my 2017 summer trip to Europe with Wowair. It was the cheapest for my date range. Looking at the reviews, I wished I went with another airline like icelandair (which I used this past Feb). I've read blog and comments ...

I am considering a trip to Melia Cayo Coco (although not set in stone on this resort) in Cuba in July (flexible dates...any time in July will work) Never been to Cuba. We generally vacation in Mexico, Dominican or Jamaica and have always gone in December, January or February so this is very new to m...

hotel

I need to book a room for one night in or around the Hollywood/Fort Lauderdale area. I've been using Hotels.com, but I am finding that our price range has only "motel like" places. We'd like to be on the beach if possible. We will have a rental car, so parking is a must - it seems as though many of ...

car rental

... I've thought of rent a dent and Apex. Both have '0 excess coverage'. I'm kind of iffy on this, but will spend a bit I guess for peace of mine (~18/day). This is for a week so 126 for the excess coverage. Apex = 2010 Corolla ($445) and Rentadent is Mazda Demio (1.6L engine supposedly late model ...

aeroplan

Flying 4 of us in July, getting prices of $730/each all in, seem high. Is waiting longer likely to increase or decrease this? I don't fly much these days, so out of the loop! Also, I'm likely going to use Aeroplan points to buy one flight, as it seems a good use of 25k points to save $730. Will be t...

cuba

... in Cuba. I haven't been in 6+ yrs. I think I just exchanged CDN $ for the CUC $ the last time I went. I have the Rogers CC that gives you a net 1.5% CB for foreign purchases (4% CB- 2.5% transaction fee), which (Still have to confirm) should apply to Cuba. So should I: Use my CC for most purchases ...

If this is a repost or rather insignificant i apologize. Seeing this is Rfd, every penny counts. My travel agent advised me of NCL's upcoming gratuity increase. She told me to prepay now to avoid the change. If you have a cruise booked, it may be worth it to prepay as well. Happy cruising. Cruise cr...
