Hey guys, Travelling to the UK soon and wanted to know what the best options are for getting GBP? I've got a Canadian HSBC account and thought about just withdrawing from ATMs over there. This shouldn't incur any fees outside of a slightly less than ideal exchange rate right? I probably won't be nee...

I am looking to park my car over the winter because it doesn't do well in the snow and doesn't have snow tires. I don't drive that much, maybe three times and week and mostly local driving buying groceries, doing errands, etc. I am trying to determine if there is a financial savings to just renting ...

Hey fellow locals, just wondering if you have any ideas for couples like festivals, plays, jazz, etc in or around the city? I'm up for anything save/except for outdoor physical activity like skiing. Tx.

Wasn't sure whether to post this here or in the CC sub-forum. Figured that since I'm mainly looking for travel benefits here would be ok. Currently have Amex Biz Plat, and Biz Gold. Hubby has Rogers WE MC, Scotia Gold Amex and Amex Biz Gold. We have already earned the referral bonuses and spend bonu...

Hello, as stated I'm looking to visit the Gulf Coast while I'm in Florida and would welcome suggestions on areas to stay and sights to see. We typically use VRBO or such for accommodations. I also looked at the Keys, but they seem very expensive by comparison. Mid to end of January 2019, two weeks. ...

Hi: Wondering if you can give some advice on my 1st ever cruise trip. On our returning day, the ship docks at around 6 am, but our returning flight back to Toronto isn't until 9 pm that night. Being the scary cat type, my GF and I have pre-arranged ...

toronto

My boyfriend and I are students and want to do some travelling over the winter break before school starts up again. Unfortunately flights are too expensive since it's Christmastime, but we were thinking of driving somewhere in Canada instead (can't go to US because we don't have a travel visa). In t...

trip

In January, I'm going on a 14 day trip to BC, starting and ending around YVR (Vancouver International Airport). I'm 18 years old and I'm having trouble finding any car rental places who will even rent to me (underage fee or not). I've only been able to find U-Haul (trip in a van isn't ideal) and ren...

flight

In the past, when booking flights into the USA, I’ve always waited until about the 54 day mark to try and get the best price possible. It’s usually worked out well (even at peak times when it has been very expensive). I’m now looking to book flights to the Caribbean during high season. I’m wondering...

on

I realize the official answer is "zero", but in practice I assume there is some amount below which it doesn't make any sense for customs to go through the paper work exercise to collect a couple of dollars of HST. I wonder what people's experience is in that regard. So far, on a day trip, often only...

hotel

I was wondering how small hotels or Bed & Breakfast places manage their bookings. Large chains obviously have their booking software that I assume hotels.com or booking.com tie into, but what about smaller places? I just had a situation where I booked an apartment on the weekend using hotel.com Plac...

Looking to rent a car for a weekend in December from the Orlando Airport. What are some of the better places to get it from?

Meehan calls the airline's response – a refund and a token quantity of frequent flyer miles – "insult to injury." "That's what I'm worth to them? 50,000 miles? ... That's what people get for signing up for a credit card. It's not even enough for a flight. https://www.rt.com/usa/443165-delta-airlines...
