Planning Paris Trip

French culture, to say the least, is very different. As a whole, it’s a nation with a sense of refinement that simply isn’t part of the American experience. And that is OK, you will experience these things during your trip and appreciate them for what they are as they enrich you culturally such as a ton of amazing regional wines, foods, and cheeses. France has a very rich wine culture that I think wine lovers anywhere can appreciate. You’ll taste the vast varieties of French cheeses. I had never tried goat cheese until I came here. Believe me it’s amazing. But my favorite aspect of French food is the pastries. You’ll see it all, croissants, pains au chocolat, beignets (French doughnuts), and a ton of different types of tartes!

I think the main difference between American culture and French culture is the way in which people do business and treat commercial relationships. They both have their pros and cons and as a tourist you’ll be faced with situations in which you might not know how to react.

Flight and Hotel Packages

The world’s leading airline companies and hotel chains often work together to bring tourists special discounts. Whether you want to spend a weekend in a major city or 10 days relaxing at a beach somewhere, you should be able to find an affordable package deal.

WHEN can you find the best deal? It depends on factors such as holidays, destination, peak travel, and so forth. If you don’t mind the risk, it might be in your best interest to wait around for a last minute deal to pop up. If your dates and destination are set in stone and there is no room for flexibility, it’s essential that you book at least 30 days in advance. Some experts claim that 49 days is the magic number, unless it’s holiday season, in which case you would want to book 96 days in advance.

Even if you are able to find a good last-minute deal on airfare, there is no guarantee that a hotel room will be available with it by that point. Also, keep in mind that many packages will require you to stay for a specific number

About Cruising in France

Cruising is ideal for anyone on a special diet or who has specific food requirements. Each barge has a professional chef on board to cook for individual tastes or dietary requirements. Additionally, the chef can provide instruction for anyone wanting to learn about French food and cooking techniques.

If passengers have an interest in wines, for example, they can sail into one of the areas of the countryside, such as Bordeaux, Champagne, or Burgundy, where some of the world’s best wine is produced. The tours will visit the vineyards and sample products from each locale. The scenery and food in these regions is sensational. They may even be invited for drinks and a meal with the owners.

Or they may prefer painting, art, music, ancient Roman history, architecture, visiting chateaux, or simply a general cruise along the waterways. Whatever route is chosen offers fascinating things to see and do. These barge trips provide a combination of land and water touring, so that museums, monuments, churches, and places of interest are not only viewed but experienced in ways that a

Some Travel Mistakes to Avoid

Hidden Fees

The cheapest flight or hotel price is not always the best deal. Most time the lowest prices for places come with quite a few hidden fees such as checked bags, resort or hotel fees, etc which could put you over budget.

Not Buying Travel Insurance

Many people opt out of buying even the most affordable travel insurance because they think that nothing will happen to them or overall, it is just not worth it. But, travel insurance can protect your luggage in case it is lost which happens more than you think. It can also pay for lost hotel reservations or even medical expenses you may endure.

Third-Party Discount Scams

Third party scammers typically push you to book using their services by tempting consumers with one-time only deals. Usually, these scammers take your money and do not follow through with services promised. One way to avoid this is to read the fine print and ask a lot of questions. Or just avoid third-party companies all together.

Currency Exchange Fee

Make sure to only go to credible currency exchange places and not some corner shop. Although

Zero Waste Road Trip

1. Set your priorities right. Expectations about time and expenses to be incurred on food and hotels should be put into considerations and seen that the right measures have been taken to avoid inconveniences during the trip.

2. Compost management. Do not forget to put into consideration on the means of food scraps and waste handling during the travel. Improvise a large sealable container to facilitate food remains disposal. Make sure the container is properly sealed with a towel cloth to avoid stench filling up your car and end up ruining your road trip.

3. Pack food and snacks. This not only helps in cutting down expenses but also gives you the opportunity to pack a wide variety of favorite homemade snacks to indulge on as you enjoy your road trip.

Discount Travel Deals

A lot of hotel deals are limited and only apply if you meet certain criteria, such as booking for a specific number of days. It’s a good idea to sign up for travel discount emails and newsletters so that you will receive details about the latest offers. Some smartphone apps even alert you the second a good deal pops up.

Another way to save money is to travel off-season. This, of course, varies depending on the location since the weather plays an important role in tourism. During major holidays like Christmas and New Year’s, the costs associated with travel will always be higher no matter what.

Don’t forget about ground transportation when looking for discount travel deals. If you plan on staying at your destination for several days, consider renting a car at a location away from the airport, as car rental offices at airports tend to charge higher rates. In some instances, you would pay two or even three times as much for the same car at the airport.
