    TSA Pre-check misses mark

    I found it interesting that I am a PRE passenger without ever applying. I did apply for some concealed weapons permits/licenses in my new job of escorting VIPs. Those applications included several FBI, DOJ and state police background & fingerprint checks. Somehow the TSA now has me in the...

    ENTERPRISE TRUCK RENTAL questions to ask first.

    I agree, damage is either going to be substantial or "wear & tear."

    norwegian cruise lines customer non care

    I recently booked on HOLLAND AMERICA, and I was told by the Holland America Booking Agent, Ms. Amy Queen, that it was up to me to watch for price reductions. I get that, at least she warned me. I would have expected NCL to be more forthcoming with their terms and conditions. As someone said...

    ENTERPRISE TRUCK RENTAL questions to ask first.

    If you plan, as m y son just did, to move yourself and rent a truck from Enterprise, here are questions to ask: FIRST ASK YOURSELF: Do I have enough time to do a thorough pre-rental inspection before I accept this truck and do I have a backup plan if it's a piece of junk. They said, "Oh, it's...

    Most horrible service and support from Travelocity

    I can not even imagine how sad you must be . . . my heart goes out to you. Sincerest condolences. I want to invite everyone to share the link to this forum on Social Media - whatever you use. They do watch Facebook, Twitter, and the other media. Remind everyone in contact with you that...

    Meet the woman who lives on a cruise ship

    Let me just slip out and buy that Power-ball Ticket . . . . Mr Cheapo here thinking too much! When you think of the cost of a nice residence in many parts of the country, $164,000/year is not that terrible. She obviously has a very nice suite with scenery that changes every day. Depending on...

    Tech of the Day: Japan is opening a hotel staffed by creepy robots

    In a world where Google and Tesla have both predicted a Self-Driving car for sale to everyone by 2020, I think we've gotta' get used to it! What percentage of homes have a robot floor sweeper today? Myself, I had a time when I was stuck in a hotel room trying to complete a project and the...

    Best kept Secret On Low Airfair ?

    I have to be really sympathetic . . . especially since my guess is that Priceline didn't even give you the option of paying the smaller fee. I recently tried to book round trip directly with Allegiant from a small airport they serve to Las Vegas. WOW, only about $150 Round Trip. I am in great...

    Look out! Automated plazas take a toll on car rental customers

    Kinda tough for the State System. I recently purchased a classic car that took some time to register in my name. In that time, I drove Southbound across the Golden Gate Bridge. The notice somehow found my mailbox and I paid it promptly. A few weeks later, I had reason to interact again with...

    United considering 10-Abreast 777 retrofits

    Holy Cow! Seats, SEATS? Is there no one making Manacles and Leg Irons any more? Maybe they can find some sort of treadmill device to replace the Auxiliary Power Unit and save fuel!

    tips for dock workers

    I have had the experience of longshoremen with their hand out at the Carnival L.A. dock and I fell for it. THANKS FOR REMINDING ME that they probably make as much as I do before the tips. I won't do that again. I also tipped the porter who took our luggage from the place where it was dropped...

    Airbnb: Deactivated account

    The Deadly TOS again! I don't believe it's your fault, they set this trap for you. Without offering any specific comment on this case, I am seeing more and more stories about TOS Violations. Every time we sign up for any program, credit card, new program or app on our computer or phone, there...

    Chrysler Ignition Switch Recall--Help!

    If you go on the internet and search the automotive sites, there are some that will give you the "Recalls" and "SERVICE BULLETINS" for your make and model. You may be surprised how many there are. DO NOT PANIC. Depending on the geography, you may try going to other dealers with that letter...

    General trip insurance question

    That's a far more realistic number. I have been looking for insurance for my upcoming cruise, and I found links on the CRUISE FORUM for companies that offer comparisons of different insurance carriers and policies. I started out with a comparison of 8 plans from almost $300. for the two of us...

    I have done the "Behind the Scenes tour on both prior cruises, and find them fascinating. Planning to do it again this Summer. As I am the family cook, I really look forward to the Kitchen tour.
