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?

1. Do your homework
The web is filled with basic information like how far it is from Las Vegas to the Grand Canyon, or how to…

Dear fellow travellers :), I'm hoping you can help me with the following info: I want to buy a ticket with American Airlines flying Las Vegas (LAS) to London (LHR) with a 1,5 hours stopover in Charlotte (CLT), and I am wondering whether they will transfer my luggage at the stopover, or whether I have to claim it and check it back again. In case it's the latter, I am worried that the connection time might be too short!
I mention that I am a Romanian citizen, therefore not in the visa waiver, and I…

As of August 1, 6 AM California time, there are 23 major wildfires burning in California and the governor has declared a state of emergency. With the drought as bad as it is, the fire situation is only going to get worse until the rainy season arrives in late October or so.

As far as I know, no current fires are affecting most travelers, but that can change at any time. You can use this map to see if there are fires that might impact your travel plans. It is updated at a least daily. Click on…

Hi;

I'm currently in Columbia, South Carolina and would like to visit Yellow Stone. I notice the air ticket to Jackson Hole airport which is near Yellow Stone is expensive around $850.

Is there is a cheaper way, like either flying to another airport but cheaper than Jackson Hole , or using train.

Please, advice.

Thanks!

Saw this in Yahoo News and while a couple the trips listed are in Canada or Mexico, most are in the U.S. Of the train trips listed I've only been on the Copper Canyon Express (El CHEPE) in Mexico so far.

With the splendid help of hermosajoe, over the past week, I've been working away on our trip to the West Coast and Canyonlands between 9 September and 10 October. I have a pretty basic idea and some bookings made but I’d like to run this past you and also ask for your comments or concerns please.

We arrive in SF and spend the first 3 nights at the Chancellor Hotel before moving to Yosemite Bug for the next 3. Then 3 nights going down through Death Valley on route to Springdale for Zion and…

Hi All,

We have a totally new itinerary for our 10 week U.S road trip which is very different than the original thanks to all the great advice from you good folk here on TT (largely from Hermosajoe)

Day 1-3: L.A
Day 4: Bishop
Day 5: Toms Place
Day 6-8: Yosemite Park
Day 9: Morro Bay
Day 10: Big Sur
