Getting to Kansas

Wichita Dwight D Eisenhower National Airport is the busiest airport in Kansas and receives domestic flights from several cities in the Midwest, Southwest and Southeast. Greyhound (www.greyhound.com) has buses from Wichita to Kansas City ($40, four hours). Jefferson Lines (www.jeffersonlines.com) also runs buses to major hubs in Kansas. Many travelers will find it easier to enter Kansas from Kansas City, MO, which is the largest city around with greater regional links by air and bus.

Health and safety


  • Comprehensive travel insurance to cover theft, loss and medical problems is highly recommended.
  • Some policies specifically exclude dangerous activities such as scuba diving, motorcycling, skiing and even trekking: read the fine print.
  • Check that the policy covers ambulances or an emergency flight home.
  • Find out in advance if your insurance plan will make payments directly to providers or reimburse you later for overseas health expenditures.
  • If you have to claim later, make sure you keep all documentation.
  • Paying for your airline ticket with a credit card often provides limited travel accident insurance – ask your credit card company what it is prepared to cover.
  • Worldwide travel insurance is available at www.lonelyplanet.com/travel-insurance. You can buy, extend and claim online anytime – even if you’re already on the road.
