          AIRPORT TIPS


To make your way to a flight on time and to get throught security as quickly as possible you can try the following tips:

1) Sign up. The TSA's PreCheck, a trusted traveler program, has spread to more cities across the U.S. and is now available at some 40 airports. Members of the program are pre-screened and can then whiz through security, sometimes without having to take off their shoes or remove laptops from cases. The U.S. Customs Department's Global Entry program is another shortcut for frequent international travelers, especially as the federal government contracts and customs lines potentially get longer.

Critical Security Checkpoints:
To make clearing security as easy as possible...
-Review the guidelines for liquids and gels on your Flight carriers Carry-On Baggage page before your flight.
-Have your government-issued photo identification and boarding pass ready for inspection.
-Wear shoes that are easy to slip on and off, since all footwear must be x-rayed.
-Remember to place all coats and jackets in a bin for x-ray screening.
-Make your laptop easily accessible for inspection.
-Avoid wearing anything metal or place these items in your carry-on baggage for screening

2) Check flight status. Although this is obvious, many people often fail to do this one simple but critical thing.

I recommend doing the same before abandoning your ride or your car just before you head to the terminal; flight status updates change by the minute, so a last-second check is always a good idea.

Most airlines will text you flight status updates if you sign up on their Web sites, and sites like Flightaware.com do the same by text, on the Web and through smartphone apps.

4) Check in online. Especially if you are not checking bags, this can save you a heap of time. I have found that when checking bags, having the pre-printed boarding pass in your hand doesn't help all that much, and check-in agents often reissue another boarding pass when you check in your bags -- but it sure doesn't hurt.

5) Before you leave for the airport, put your ID, credit card and boarding pass (if applicable) in an easily accessible part of your wallet or bag. There are two reasons for this: one, by going through this exercise, you make sure that you don't leave home without these crucial items. Two, you don't waste your (and other people's) time fumbling around for them at the moment you need them.

Check the airport parking situation online. Knowing ahead of time where to park, which lots are open and how far they are from the terminal can save you a lot of anxiety on your drive in, as well as keep you safer as you navigate tortuous and almost always poorly marked airport ring roads. Additionally, during peak travel periods, lots fill up quickly, so you will want an alternate parking plan.

When you are ready to board always take inventory of what you will need to do when you get to the front of the security line. Do a quick mental review of everything you are wearing that you will need to remove (such as shoes, jewelry, watch, jacket), and what you have inside your carry-on bag that might need to be taken out (liquids, electronics). When you get to the front of the line, blast through your mental inventory and make it happen. Done well, you can go from fully clad for winter weather, with laptops and iPads in your bag, to a T-shirt, pants and socks, and all your sensitive electronics in their own bins, in seconds.

Using these tips will get you through the airport, on your flight and towards your destination as quickly as possible.

HOW TO PAY LESS FOR FLIGHTS


1. Buy your tickets online
Buying your tickets online will actually help you save more money than buying at the airport or at an agent. Services like Google Flights or others which can be found by a simple online search.

2. Join Frequent flyers
Frequent flyer programs have a lot of benefits and some can offer discounts on future tickets after building up miles, and others may even offer free flights!

3. Not All Sales are Lowest prices
Sometimes a flight ticket may be on sale, but that doesn't necessarily mean that it is a bargain for you. Always keep this in mind because that sale could end up costing you more than other deals!

4. Check For Hidden Fees
Always check other fees for tickets that may not be listed at first sight of the price. Make sure to be aware of the price of the ticket at all times and this can be avoided. Many hidden fees are luggage or even meals.

5. Compare Ticket Prices
If you are shopping online, there are various sites you can use to compare prices for different venders of tickets.

6. Choose The Right airline
Make sure when traveling on a budget to go with the airline that is the most comfortable to your budget. Even though it may not be as popular as others, they all get you to your destination!

7. Select an  Off-Hours flight
When shopping for tickets, try to buy tickets that have flights early in the morning or late at night if you can. Sometimes these tickets can save you a bundle!

8. Buy tickets months In Advance
Try to plan your trips, if possible, months in advance to save a lot more in the long run. Sometimes, depending on where you travel, this little tip can end up saving you hundreds on your tickets.

9. Find Vacation Packages
When planning your vacations, try to purchase trip packages as they can end up saving you a ton of money in the long run. If you have the time, compare a package with the costs of buying everything separate.

10. Different Types Of Flights Help You Save
Sometimes it would be wiser if possible to purchase a flight that maybe has one stop before it reaches its final destination, instead of doing a non-stop flight. This can end up helping you save and you can even enjoy the different merchandise at the airport you stop at before your flight continues.

THE GROWING TREND
OF FLORIDA VACATION HOMES




Florida is a go to destination for millions of people throughout America and throughout the world. It is no secret that it is one of  the United States best winter getaway destinations.  You can buy a Florida home and live close to beautiful beaches of Florida; being in the warm sun during the cold winter. Owning a vacation home is increasing in popularity and many families are beginning to do just that.

There are many classified listings on the wb which offer condominium listings as well as other properties which help you find a home in the area you desire. These real estate listings give an overview of properties and the features they offer along with special deals. Owning a Florida vacation home gives families the chance to experience a comfortable vacation at their own pace. All it takes is finding the perfect condominium in the right location.

When searching for the perfect vacation home for your family, there are a lot of choices to consider. First, find an area that is near the places you want to see. For families with kids, a place near the attractions may be the best option. There are plenty of areas surrounding Walt Disney World. Kissimmee and Davenport are two Central Florida towns that are right around the neighborhood of the theme parks.

Beachside vacation condos also offer specials at certain times of the year. If you choose to stay by the beach, your family is still close to the inland attractions. Many Florida homes may offer decreases in sales prices during the Winter months sine it will be very slow season.

One of the first things to select  when searching for a vacation home is the style of home that a property offers. Do the room sizes meet your family's needs? Some condos don't offer only a basic kitchen space while others include a full kitchen and dining room. Find out if the condo comes furnished or if you will need to factor in the cost of furniture to fill another house.

Another point to consider is the actual purchasing of the condo. If the property is a time-share, you will be locked in to certain times during a year to visit and will need to plan your vacations accordingly. If you are purchasing the condo, there will be maintenance fees. Properties offer a range of purchasing options. One property near Orlando Florida, the Bimini Bay Resort offers a revolutionary system. Vacationers purchase a condo and receive fees from the property for its use when owners aren't in residence.

Sometimes, finding the perfect home also requires love at first sight. Most vacation communities today have a website where you can view the property and its amenities. However, once you decide on a property it's best to call them directly and ask questions that can be answered by someone on the property. Ask for any type of visuals, schematics and possible links to pictures from previous buyers.

One of the best things you could do is get a  personal tour of the vacation home. This way, you can get a feel for not only the condos themselves, but also the community surrounding the property. Now all you have to do is pack your bags and enjoy the Florida sun!

Families should look for a place where they can be comfortable away from home. Property owners know this and therefore cater to a wide range of features for buyers. Families can choose a Florida home with enough bedrooms for kids and parents, whether they need a full kitchen or just a simple area to prepare food, as well as the amenities that a property offers.

Many vacation homes have three and four bedrooms which can house a family comfortably. Some homes have an upstairs to house the bedrooms while the bottom floor is devoted to living space. Most furnished condos provide a double bed so that a room can be split between children or other guests.

Many condo's and homes have amenities that make a beach condo feel more like a luxury resort. From pools to tiki bars and cabanas, properties may also offer an exercise facility, sauna and even a personal massage room. While most properties do offer basic amenities such as a pool, it is best to check before making a final decision. Families should look for children friendly locations which have a game room, pool or maybe even a theme park nearby..

There are many condo and home  listings on the internet which you can find by doing an easy online search. There are sites that connect you to local real estate based on the country and city where you want to search for a condominium.

What may be the most informative place to turn to is the local tourist information center. They can turn you over then to local tourist boards with their own condominium listings.  Wherever you choose to look, condominium listings are only the beginning. To find the perfect home you should take the time to research the locations that can best interest your family.

Remember to rread the reviews of your chosen location or town and to also  view pictures of the location which can easliy be done using Google's street view. Whether you choose an Orlando beach side or attraction side or the Keys or maybe even Tampa, you can easily go to the area and check out it's neighborhood right from your browser!

It has become a growing trend in America for families who want that second home which is also a vacation home to select Florida as their destination. With the warm weather as an incentive for the cold winter getaway it is no surprise that Florida is so attractive.
