Transportation Tips for travelers


Book at least a week in advance. The best fares can be booked one, two or three weeks before the departure date.

Keep in mind that flights on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays are usually cheaper.

Night departures are usually cheaper.

Try to choose the same airline for the whole trip.

Do not forget to re-confirm your flights several times a day before departure. Ask for registration and permission for luggage.

Consider packing in transparent plastic zipper bags for easy control. You plan to arrive at the airport at least two hours before the flight time. Do not leave your luggage alone. You may be asked to turn on all electrical and electronic devices.

Cheap airline companies offer cheap flights around the world. Book your flight on the web or by phone with a credit card.

Most of the discounted airline tickets are invariable and non-refundable, some offer changes to the return date at an additional cost. In the latter case, you must make changes at least 24 hours before departure.

Most cheap cheap airlines offer one-way flights without a cost or penalty increase that provide an excellent way to get on cheap flights to connect with land-based flights. You plan to have some time to connect, the delay of one flight will cause you to miss another interconnected flight.

Every budget airline has its own luggage limitation, make sure you teach them before booking. Many of them allow very limited baggage free of charge, sometimes only 15 or 20 kg (33 or 44 lb) charging up to $ 15 per kilogram (2.2 pounds) extra weight.

Discounted airlines often use an obscure airport away from the city center. It may cost you more money and time to transfer.


Make sure you've caught the right train in the right place. Cities often have more than one train station, so pay attention. In case of confusion, ask for help.

Each car on the train is marked separately, cars are usually added and fall back and forth along the way. Make sure the city on your automobile label is your goal.

Theft is fairly frequent on trains, so be careful and attentive. Attach your backpack to the security tower.

For night travel you can get a deckchair – a sleeping bed in the wardrobe. Book it at least one day in advance. Tables, pillows and blankets will cost you money.

For the average independent traveler who plans to see a lot of Europe, the best way to go is Eurailpass. Eurailpasses offers you unlimited first-class travel on all public highways in 17 European countries. Most passes can be purchased from six months in advance for one week in advance. After you buy a railroad track, you have six months to confirm it in Europe. You can validate the railway track at any European train station by presenting a railroad passport and a passport to a railway worker on a ticket window that will write the first and last dates of your travel period.


We recommend booking a cruise early, at least one month before the cruise date.

Try to be flexible about your travel plans, off-season cruises are almost always cheaper.

Getting a four-day cruise in the middle of a week instead of a favorite three-day weekend cruise, you can get this extra day at a good price.

Choosing the right cruise. It is completely in line with your taste. The most popular destinations among the first cruisers are the Caribbean or Mexican riviera, from where you fly from one island paradise to the other. More experienced travelers choose Alaska or Canada where you will experience warming of glaciers and spectacular whales. Cruises to Europe with several days of transatlantic voyage, cultural shock and rich information excursions are recommended by the most experienced cruisers.

Length of voyage. A three-day weekend, four-day weekly and two-week cruises are the most popular.

Cabins are listed as inside (without windows) or outdoors (with windows, higher prices). If you plan to spend most of your time in your cabin, choose the largest room you can afford. Standard cabins have double beds that can usually be converted to a double bed, while bunk beds in other rooms can not be converted.


There are four types of car rental rates: daily rate per kilometer charge; daily rate with a limited number of free kilometers per day; daily rate with unlimited mileage; and the speed that has free kilometers over a longer period of time. Vehicles are economical at a change in the week with an unlimited mileage. Daily rates are usually quite high, but there are good 3-day deals. Prices vary from company to company, month to month, and country to country.

Your age may affect your rate. Younger tenants (up to 25 years of age) may be paid for money as if they had to buy more expensive insurance. Some companies will not rent a car to a person under the age of 21. There are also maximum age limits that differ from company to company. If you exceed the lower and upper age limits, take a look at leasing a vehicle that has a lower age limit. Leasing cars get a lot of tax and insurance costs and it's great for people who need a car for three weeks or longer. The Netherlands, Belgium, France, Germany, Spain and Italy are popular car rental locations.

All car rentals require a valid driving license. Some car rental companies check the driver's record and reject the car with a bad ride. In some foreign countries, an international driver license may be required.

We wish you a successful and safe trip!
