US to Israel for $298 Round Trip: WOW Air is offering some super cheap fares to Israel from September 2017 through March 2018. Some routes are available from Boston, Baltimore, New York, Los Angeles, Miami, Chicago, Pittsburgh and San Francisco to Tel Aviv. You can book through Orbitz, Expedia or directly through WOW. Make sure to pack accordingly in order to keep your airfare low, and this is a low cost carrier.
Using Priority Pass at Restaurants: Many of us have Priority Pass membership through some of the credit cards in our wallet. This provides us with a quiet little sanctuary, away from the airport madness, while waiting for our next flight. Plus it may include free drinks and food. Well, at Sydney Airport, Priority Pass membership allows you free food and drinks at some restaurants. I thought this was an interesting perk as I had never heard of this. Just another way to relax and save some cash while on vacation!
6 Hotel Promotions Available Now: Yesterday we mentioned the SPG promotion that was leaked early, but 5 other hotels have their own promotions that you may consider if you have upcoming stays. Make sure to weigh out the pros and cons of each before deciding which promotion to pursue. Everyone’s circumstances are different so what’s good for one traveler, may not be good for the other.
Face Scanners Replacing Delta Desk Agents: Fast forward to the future! Delta will soon be implementing face scanners that will replace agents at the check-in counter. Soon you should be able to walk up to the face scanner to be recognized, then tag and drop off your luggage and be on your merry way. The plan is to start this summer at the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport. If this is a success, then it could spread to other airports. Let’s wait and see.
