USA branch FAQ

This branch covers: Mainland USA, Hawaii & Alaska

So many posts request the impossible - that a bunch of people who have never met you magically intuit how much you have to spend and what will make you happy on vacation, generally planning out your route for three months and helping you get discount flight reservations.

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

Hi There, I'm interested in doing a road trip from Vancouver down to LA. I've been reading some of the threads about renting cars & crossing the border. Does it make sense to rent a car in Vancouver, and then trade it in when we get to Seattle, and then take another car for the rest of the trip? Should I be looking into more car swaps? Does taking the train from Vancouver to Seattle make more sense? We'll be two adults traveling together. Thanks for your help!

Hi All - Never flown on New Years Day before - flying South West, San Diego to Chicago - don't know if there will be hordes of people or next to no one - asking because its a 6.30 am flight and would not like to get to the airport too early. Any experiences or opinions - it will be a bleary flight i guess.

Locals report that there is a lot of emergency equipment using the road, and that the area is very smoky, so this may not be the best time for travel.

I have filled in an Esta application for visiting the USA. However, I have a query.

The place of birth on my passport has both village and region on it -

Paterna (Valencia)

with Paterna being the village and Valencia the region.

When I tried to add it into the Esta form , I was unable to add in Valencia in brackets - the form wouldn't accept these characters.

So in the end I put

Paterna, Valencia.

Do you think this will be ok? The Esta has been accepted but will I have problems boarding…
