USA branch FAQ

This branch covers: Mainland USA, Hawaii & Alaska

So, what can you do to get great travel advice?

1. Do your homework

Desperately needing advice on best way to spend NYE in NYC 2016/2017,family of 4 with teenage sons 18 and 16 yo. We are staying on 54th Street a couple of blocks south of Central Park. Would love a good vantage point for fireworks. Worth going to Times Square? Budget mid range- won't have crazy money to spend but as this will probably be the only time we will be in New York as a family for NYE we would like to do it justice.

On the 2d of January 2016, I received my final e-mail confirmation of renting and payment in ALAMO Rent-a-Car for a Toyota RAV4 (or similar, as usual) - 18 days from 23 June 2016, starting from Las Vegas International Airport. This prepaid rent (€…
