Miscellaneous Travel Tips

Booking your hotel online? Be sure to read the fine print about cancellation policies for the online service. You may lose all of the cost of the room and the booking fee if you cancel. Grace periods change and fees change. Be aware of them before you enter your credit card number.

Booking an airline flight? Take a look at some of the travel sites like Travelocity or Expedia but also check out the flights they list with the airline website. You might find a better price. Also, the online sites are good for booking your flights when you are flying to one city but coming back from another.

Doing a lot of walking on your trip? Take along moleskin for those blisters that seem to pop up even when you're not in new shoes.

Packing tip: Hang on to those freebie shower caps and use them to cover your shoes when you pack and keep your clothes cleaner.

And finally, for those who are App addicts here's one for travel: GoTourIt. Buy and download GPS guided audio tours of cities, parks and historic sites. It's available at iTunes App Store.
