TVI Express Review, Vacation MLM Opportunity

TVI Express has been making some major claims of offering $10000 income per week in an MLM based business. On what basis does Travel Ventures International make these claims? Are these true; or is TVI just another MLM scam? Let’s see in this review what this MLM opportunity’s about, how legitimate it is and how profitable.

What’s TVI Express All About?

– We know Travel Ventures International should deal in travel because that’s what the name suggests; but what exactly do they sell? TVI Express offers travel memberships to customers that entitle them to huge discounts on hotel accommodation, travel packages and fares. Members also get a free 6 Nights/ 7 Days stay at specified hotels or resorts at any place they select. – Started in 20099 and based in London, the company has alliances with airline companies, resorts and hotels and other holiday agents throughout the world.

What seems to matter more to TVI Express is not the product they have to offer; but the network marketing opportunity that promises high commissions and exciting perks. Even their website has more about the business than about the membership. So let’s have a look at the business and see if it’s really possible to make so much money.

The MLM Opportunity Cost – Pay approximately $300 to become a distributor of this company. This will give you access to their booking site where you could book accommodation, cruises, air tickets and rental cars.

The Business – Though you may want to race your way through to the top, TVI believes in making their reps cycle from one level to another to make their way up. The first level is the Traveller Board; you need to recruit at least two people who in turn should recruit two more. You get to exit this board when you reach the top of the grid. You get $500 when you get out of the Traveller Board and $10000 when you exit the Express Board which is the second level. There are two more levels to cycle through and the payout keeps increasing with each level.

Why This Particular Network Marketing Home Business? Other than the obvious advantage of attractive commissions, TVI Express also offers to its reps the benefit of internet marketing. You will have your own website and marketing videos. The business also offers other perks like laptops and luxury cars to achievers. But then, you’ll really need to be a good performer if you want to get the benefits of the Express Board and these perks.

Too Good To Be True? – Recruiting just two people to move on to the next level might seem really simple. But remember, you also have to make your team repeat this business to bring in consistent income. Also, you’ll need to bring in much more than two people to make money in this business because that’s what this MLM is all about. Build a strong MLM downline to strengthen your business; this is the best way to make profit.

– TVI Express is not the only company to promote discount travel. There’s strong competition from Pyxism, a new MLM enterprise and Dream Style Vacation. Both these companies have a structure similar to TVI and have started gaining popularity with both customers as well as reps. – If you’re in this business full time for the money, you’d be wasting your time trying to sell this opportunity to your friends or relatives. The reason is, you’ll have to make sure you recruit people who’re as interested in this business as you are; only then can you hope to build your downline and strengthen your business.

Success In TVI Express – To succeed in this business, you’d need to beat your competitors in this business as well as other discount travel companies. Though TVI offers good resources to promote your business online, you have to know tricks that would set you apart from others. How else can you get people to visit your website instead of all others? Online marketing is a dynamic concept that keeps changing techniques and tools. Keep up with these innovations and be the first to market your business in a way that’s sure to grab people’s attention.

Lawrence Tam has brought the best out of hundreds of Internet Marketers by helping them create wealth for their own network marketing business.

Business Traveller Flying to London? A London City Guide for Getting to the Centre

London. The vibrant, beating heart of the United Kingdom. It’s one of the world’s most popular destinations for tourists, and for business travellers too. The amount of commerce that goes through London is staggering, with a financial centre second only to New York, and service industries that cater for both the UK, European and international markets. As the world’s most multicultural city – there are over 300 languages spoken by a population of over eight million people (twelve million if you include the metropolitan area) – the opportunities for business are clear.

With the UK strategically positioned for the business traveller on the western edge of Europe, London is a global hub for air travel, providing easy access to mainland Europe, and a stepping stone to the United States. Primarily served by five airports – Heathrow, Gatwick, City, Stansted and Luton – London is easily reached from anywhere in the world. But with the exception of London City Airport – smallest of the five and located in East London, close to the business district of Canary Wharf – the other four airports are satellites evenly dispersed around the city. The most popular, Heathrow, is located to the west of London; Gatwick is situated to the south; Stansted to the north east; and Luton to the North West. Knowing this before you make your travel plans can be useful. Since the greater metropolitan area of London covers over 1,000 square miles, your final business destination may not be right in the centre. Researching which airport is closest to your destination can save you time, effort and money.

However, whether you’re a business traveller flying from within the UK or from overseas, your starting destination may often determine the airport you arrive at. Other factors, such as your chosen time of travel, budget and availability will also make a difference. For example, if you’re travelling with a major international carrier from a major city, such as New York, the chances are you’ll arrive at Heathrow or Gatwick (Stansted also receives flights from New York but is the smallest of the three). If you’re travelling locally from within the UK with a budget carrier you’re more likely to arrive at Stansted or Luton (though not exclusively). And if you’re travelling from a major European city, particularly a financial capital, such as Frankfurt, London City Airport is a likely arrival point (the airport was created specifically to cater for short haul business travellers, particularly between financial centres).

Each airport is served by comprehensive rail and road infrastructure, providing business travellers with a variety of options to enter London. All five airports offer direct rail travel into the heart of Central London, coach travel to the main Victoria terminus, and hire car, mini-bus, licensed black cab and taxi services by road. If you’re a VIP business traveller, chauffeur services are also available, and with the exception of London City Airport, each also offer direct helicopter transfer into the heart of the city.

London Heathrow Airport

The busiest of the five airports is London Heathrow. Located less than twenty miles from central London, Heathrow is situated to the west of the city within the M25 motorway metropolitan boundary. The fastest route into London is via the Heathrow Express train service, taking just 15 minutes from terminals 1, 2 and 3 to Paddington station (located on the western side of Central London). If your flight arrives at either terminal 4 or 5 it’s a further four and six minutes travel time respectively, and you’ll need to transfer on to the main London-bound service at terminals 1, 2 and 3.

The service is excellent, offering comfort and convenience, but does not always suite everyone’s travel budget. The standard ‘Express’ single journey ticket costs £21.00 (€25.00 / $35.00), but business travellers can get better value when purchasing a return ticket, priced at £34.00 (€40.00 / $56.00). The ‘Business First’ ticket is more expensive, with singles costing £29.00 (€35.00 / $48.00) and returns £52.00 (€62.00 / $86.00), but it does afford business travellers considerably more leg room, the privacy of a ‘single seating’ layout, and a fold out table. The experience is akin to that of air travel. All passengers across both pricing structures enjoy access to electrical sockets, USB ports and free Wi-Fi. The overall quality of service and passenger experience generates a ‘wow’ factor, and if your budget can afford it, is certainly the smoothest, quickest and most convenient way to travel into London from Heathrow. Trains run regularly every fifteen minutes in both directions, particularly useful for last minute dashes to the airport.

There are two further rail options available to business travellers, both considerably less expensive, though this is reflected in the quality of service. That’s not to say either is not a good solution for business travellers, just that there is a noticeable difference in convenience and comfort.

With a service typically running every thirty minutes, and a journey duration – depending on the time of day – of between 23 and 27 minutes from terminals 1, 2 and 3, Heathrow Connect is more than adequate for business travellers who are not in a hurry. Like the rival Express service, Connect also arrives at Paddington station, but unlike its faster rival stops at up to five other stations before reaching its terminus. The ‘inconvenience’ of this less direct journey is compensated for by a considerably less expensive ticket price. Single journey’s cost £9.90 (€12.00 / $16.00) while a return is £19.80 (€24.00 / $32.00). There is no saving to be made from purchasing a return ticket. While the convenience and comfort of the traveller experience cannot match the Express, the Connect business travel solution is an acceptable compromise that suits a greater number of travel budgets.

The third – and least expensive – rail option is the London Underground ‘tube’ network. Despite the network’s name the majority of the journey from Heathrow is overground, until the business traveller nears Central London. Starting on the Piccadilly Line, the service connects all five Heathrow terminals and provides frequent trains into London, stopping at a considerable amount of outlying stations before arriving in the capital’s centre. This continually ‘interrupted’ journey – there are seventeen stops between Heathrow terminals 1, 2 and 3 and Paddington Tube station (the nearest equivalent tube terminus for a fair comparison) – and takes approximately fifty minutes journey time on average, considerably slower than its more direct rivals. This journey comparison also requires the inconvenience of a transfer between lines.

So why would the business traveller consider using the tube from Heathrow to Central London? Simple. The frequency of service, the array of destinations, and the cost. At a cash price of just £5.70 (€6.80 / $9.50) for a single journey in either direction during peak hours (06:30am to 09:30am), financially the Underground is an attractive option. At nearly half the price of the Heathrow Connect, and at just over a quarter of the price of the Heathrow Express, this service is comparably good value for money. Further value can be found if the business traveller purchases an ‘Oyster Card’, the ‘cashless’ electronic ticketing system beloved by so many Londoners. Available to purchase at Heathrow London Underground stations, this useful option allows you to get tickets cheaper than for cash – in this case a reduction to just £5.00 (€6.00 / $8.30). Off-peak travel with an Oyster Card offers even greater value, with Heathrow to Paddington in either direction costing just £3.00 (€3.60 / $5.00) per journey. The Oyster Card can also be used for unlimited travel on buses and trains throughout London, with a maximum daily spend capped at £17.00 (€20.00 / $28.00) peak time and just £8.90 (€10.60 / $15.00) off-peak for a six zone ticket (destinations across London are divided into six main zonal rings. Travelling from Heathrow to Central London crosses all six zones).

The Underground is primarily a city-wide mass transit system, rather than a ‘train’ service. As such the level of comfort and convenience is substantially less than that of both the Heathrow Express and Connect services, and at peak hours can be considerably uncomfortable. Having endured a recent flight, business travellers who choose this option run the risk of having to stand up the entire journey if travelling during peak hours. If the carriage is full to squeezing point (as is often the case at peak time) managing your luggage can be a challenge. It should also be noted that the tube network – which, as the world’s first urban mass-transit system is over 150 years old – is often prone to signal failures and delays. If the time between your arrival at Heathrow (don’t forget to factor in clearing immigration control, luggage collection and customs) and your business appointment is tight, particularly during peak hours, it is not unfair to say that you are taking a risk if you choose to use the Underground.

Compared to using rail, travelling by road into Central London is far less convenient. Like every major city around the world, traffic congestion plagues the streets of London. The M4 and A4 route from Heathrow into London is always busy and in parts can be slow moving at times. No matter what your method of road transport, the business traveller is vulnerable to the risk of delays and accidents.

Buses and coaches are plentiful. The dominant carrier is called National Express. They operate services between Heathrow Airport and London Victoria, the main coach terminus in London. From here travellers can travel to many other destinations around the UK. The coaches run from Heathrow Airport Central Bus Station, which is located between terminals 1, 2 and 3. Its well sign posted so easily found. If you’re arriving at terminals 4 or 5 you’ll need to first take the Heathrow Connect train to the central bus station. From Victoria Station you can get to any other part of London with ease, via the Underground, plentiful buses, local trains and licensed black cabs / minicab taxi services.

A single journey tickets start from £6.00 (€7.20 / $10.00), while returns cost £11.00 (€13.20 / $18.00). Although you can purchase your ticket at Heathrow, it is advisable to do so in advance, and online. This will ensure you have a guaranteed, reserved seat on your coach of choice, and also provide you with the opportunity to select a time of departure and/or return that best suits your needs. Typically this service runs three coaches per hour to and from London Victoria coach station. The journey time can vary, dependent on the route taken, the time of day and traffic conditions, but you can typically expect your journey to take between 40 and 90 minutes.

National Express also offers business travellers a Heathrow hotel transfer service to and from the airport, known as the Heathrow Hoppa. With hundreds of services each day running around the clock, it’s a clean, comfortable and affordable way to get about, costing £4.00 (€4.80 / $6.60) for single journey and £7.00 (€8.40/ $11.50) for a return journey. This service is particularly useful if your business appointment is located close to Heathrow and you have no need to travel into Central London.

An alternative to coach travel is taking a bus. This can be particularly useful if you arrive at Heathrow late at night. Depending on the day of the week, the N9 night bus runs approximately every 20 minutes to Trafalgar Square in Central London, from 11.30pm to 5am. The journey time is approximately 75 minutes, subject to traffic delays. It’s a very affordable service, and as part of the Transport for London infrastructure a single journey can be paid for with an Oyster Card (£1.40 (€1.70/ $2.30) or by cash (£2.40 (€2.90/ $4.00).

If your journey into London requires the freedom to choose to travel whenever you want, to wherever you want, or you simply require privacy, then private hire transport is readily available at Heathrow. If you’re just interested in getting from A to B and back again, without any other journeys in between, taking a licensed black cab or minicab taxi may suit your needs. Travelling in an iconic licensed black cab into Central London will take approximately 45-60 minutes, subject to traffic delays, and can typically cost between £50.00 (€60.00/ $83.00) and £80.00 (€96.00/ $132.00). If you do find yourself delayed in traffic the journey will cost more, since black cab meters also charge for waiting time when not moving. Black cabs are readily available at all hours, and good sign posting at Heathrow means they’re easy to find. At a squeeze up to five business travellers can be accommodated, though if you all have large luggage it will be a problem.

An alternative private hire to black cabs are licensed taxi services. This could be a better option for the business traveller, particularly if a number of people with luggage are travelling together. An array of vehicle types are available, ranging from standard 4/5 seater saloon and 6/7 passenger people carrier cars, up to 15 or 17 seater minibuses and even coach taxis. An added advantage is you can book your vehicle of choice in advance and at a fixed price. With so many different companies offering these services, prices – and quality of service – can vary, but typically for a single journey the business traveller can expect to pay a fixed, advance price of £40.00 (€48.00/ $66.00) for a saloon car; £50.00 (€60.00/ $83.00) for an estate car; £55.00 (€66.00/ $90.00) for an executive car; £55.00 (€66.00/ $90.00) for a people carrier; £65.00 (€78.00/ $108.00) for an 8 seater minibus; £80.00 (€96.00/ $132.00) for an executive people carrier; and £165.00 (€198.00/ $272.00) for a 16 seater minibus. Savings can be made on all tariffs if a return journey is booked in advance.

Travelling by black cab or licensed taxi affords the business traveller the freedom to travel at his or her own pace, and can take the hassle out of a journey. It can be a very relaxing way to commute from the airport into London, particularly after a long flight, and offers the business traveller an opportunity to unwind prior to their business appointment.

If you need to arrange senior executive or VIP transportation, chauffeur driven services are readily available (booked in advance) between Heathrow and London. The vehicle type and the length of time you require it for will dictate the price you’ll pay. Chauffeur driven services are readily available to find online. The same is true of helicopter charter services which can transfer the executive business traveller from Heathrow into Central London (Battersea Heliport) in approximately 15 minutes. Flightline Travel Management is experienced at providing our customers with both modes of transport, and we’re happy to take your enquiry.

A TVI Express Review – A MLM Marketing System Turns $250 Into $10,000

TVI Express is without doubt causing some noise amongst those in the network marketing industry. After doing some thorough research, I can understand why. I will mention upfront that I do not represent TVI Express, therefore this review is impartial.

The Company TVI Express

Travel Ventures International houses it’s headquarters in London and launched in China and India in early 2009. In July 2009 as a result of a successful network marketing launch they decided to expand internationally to over 150 countries. They are an economical travel club providing lifestyle-conscious people excellent travel and hospitality products in conjunction with a business opportunity for those considering a successful network marketing career.

TVI Express Business Opportunity

TVI has creatively combined the 3 emerging and most popular trends of today into a powerful home business opportunity:

o Travel and tourism – every minute $14 million is spent on travel

o Internet – 82% of all travel is booked online

o Home based business

TVI Express Compensation Plan

The company has adopted a revolutionary compensation plan that incorporates a 2 stage earning cycle, and seems to be beneficial for many who are involved in the business.

1. Traveler Board

Everybody who joins the business opportunity is allocated a position on the Traveler Board at level 1. As new associates join they are placed in the first open spot, pushing you up the board to the top. At this time you move off the Traveler Board to join the Express Board and make $500 ($250 cash and $250 travel voucher).

2. Express Board

Yet again you join the Express Board at level 1 and as new people join, you are pushed up the board to the top position. When you cycle off the Express Board you earn $15,000 ($10,000 in cash and $5,000 in travel vouchers).

The Express Board cycle continues as you are placed at the bottom again.

There is a one-off fee of US$250 to enroll in Travel Ventures International which includes a 6 night / 7 day travel coupon at a 3 – 5 star resort along with other related discounts on a choice of travel packages.

One weakness I discovered in their business process is that members get a company replicated website included in their subscription to advertise their business and source home business leads. However in today’s competitive market, this approach is no longer adequate. Successful network marketing distributors differentiate themselves with self-branded MLM marketing systems. Such MLM marketing systems portray you as the leader, thus attracting a better qualified home business lead and resulting in improved business success.

With such rapid growth in a short space of time, it’s no surprise Travel Ventures International has the network marketing industry talking. Join this steadily growing business opportunity with an impressive and hugely effective MLM marketing system to create continuous home business leads and it seems that you could have a winning formula for financial success.

American Express Vacations Uncovers a Jewel of the Eastern Sierra Nevada Mountains

Thanks to the growing popularity of the wilderness resort, there are a number of American Express travel deals available to travelers looking for outdoor beauty. But with the public’s growing demand, comes a need for travel agents to be able to recommend specific sights, resorts and activities to offer value their clients. New research has uncovered some amazing resorts, with varying degrees of luxury and value in an area called the June Lake Loop located in Mono County, California.

For the Rugged Traveler

Down route US 395, about 70 miles from the small city Bishop, American Express Vacations
tells us travelers see the most beautiful scenic loop by far: The June Lake Loop. This green and richly forested area is home to four large lakes. This beautiful area includes June Lake, noted for its rich cobalt blues and aquamarine streaks, Gull Lake, known for its California Sea Gull population, Silver Lake, known for its glassy and silvery color and Grant Lake is also the largest lake in the most barren part of the area. The Loop has six campgrounds, three named for June Lake, Gull Lake and Sliver Lake: Oh! Ridge, Reversed Creek and Walker Lake. The campgrounds are a great value, costing only $12 a day and are great for travelers wishing to experience the Eastern Sierras in its most natural and rugged setting. Reservations are recommended, but not required.

For the More Reserved Traveler

Not all travelers are up to sleeping on the ground under the stars. But in June Lake, there are a number of motels, which are privately held, offering varying levels of comfort and value. For travelers who wish to experience the beauty of the surrounding nature with some of the comforts allowed to modern travelers, American Express Travel recommends its clients check out the Silver Lake Resort. This resort was originally established in 1916, and offers private, one-bedroom cabins with a bed, a bathroom, a kitchenette, and in some cases, a television with cable. Cabins start at about $125 a night and range to $230 a night. The smaller cabins sleep two and the larger cabins sleep eight.

For the Luxury Traveler

The June Lake Loop has boomed in resent years and is now beginning to attract visitors with a taste for luxury. A number of privately held mansions and condos have sprung up, and some are available to rent on a weekly basis. For visitors interested in experiencing nature in the lap of luxury, try the Double Eagle Resort and Spa. Their Deluxe Two Bedroom Cabins have a wood burring fireplace, fully equipped kitchens, a furnished living room, TV/VCR, telephones, a king or queen in at least one bedroom, outside decks with furnishings and a barbecue. All of the cabins have breath taking views of the near by Carson Peak. A full service spa and health and fitness center is also on the property.

TVI Express – A Third Party Review

I’d like to briefly talk about TVI Express, both the products they offer and the opportunity for the entrepreneur. I’m going to review the history of the company, how to make money with the company, and offer some insights about marketing this business online successfully. TVI Express stands for Travel Ventures International, and is currently operating in 150 different countries around the world, and expanding rapidly. TVI Express started business earlier in 2009 in very few countries, and due to the initial success they achieved they expanded globally.

TVI Express is a travel and hospitality company. Travel Ventures International is headquartered in London, but does business globally through the internet. The fact that this business is based around internet marketing will allow its distributors and customers to access all of their products and services from anywhere in the world. This particular business is all about travel, something that people are already doing and would love to be saving money on at the same time. That’s where TVI Express comes into play. TVI Express has alliances all over the globe including airlines, cruises, hotels, and even car rentals. These different alliances offer less expensive travel and hospitality rates for people all over the globe.

The cost to join TVI Express is $250 to $275 depending on your payment method, and there are no more fees for the opportunity side of the business. Included in that package is a 7 day, 6 night hotel stay almost anywhere in the world. That hotel stay is the product that TVI Express is based around. So essentially you’re buying a product for a discounted rate, and you’re becoming a business owner at the same time. There are quite a few other products, all relative to the travel and hospitality industry, which can be purchased at a discount after you become a member of this club.

As far as building a team goes, you’re required to gather 2 team members or distributors directly underneath yourself, and then to teach your team how to duplicate your success. You can stop there if you want, but if you’re looking for faster growth and more money, you can build a larger direct team. The fact that you’re only required to find 2 people to join this business will make this a very easy business to build. However, if you decide to build a larger direct team your commission percentages will increase dramatically.

The only thing I can tell you from my experience with different MLM companies is that you’re going to need to get some outside training on how to effectively market a business online. Once you set up your system and get your company website they provide, you’re going to need to generate targeted traffic to your website. There are a lot of various methods to generate traffic online, some are better than others, and some are more expensive than others. Your current financial situation will ultimately decide which methods you would use to build your business.

In conclusion, TVI Express is a travel club very similar to many other clubs out there that offer discounted products or services to their members. You’re paying money to join a club that will give you discounted rates on all things related to traveling. This might be something that would interest any traveler, besides the fact that you can make money by referring other people to join the club as well. My opinion is this is a simple business plan with sound products. I wouldn’t recommend it to people that don’t like to travel and save money, but how many people do you know that don’t like that? Whether you join TVI Express or any other MLM business online, you’ll need to set up your own marketing system just like every single top producer in any company uses.

Choosing A Travel Rewards Credit Card

I do a lot of traveling and, when I can, I like to share whatever benefits my experience might offer.

So it wasn’t surprising when my daughter asked for my advice, on behalf of a friend, about which credit card is the best for earning travel rewards. The question, however, wasn’t one to which I had given much thought in a while.

There are a lot of rewards programs to choose from. I am not an expert on them. I mainly use two programs, offered through American Express and Chase, but these are not necessarily the best out there. Nor will they necessarily be suitable, or even available, for everyone. Though I am satisfied with the two programs I use, I did a bit of digging to see what would be around if I were to start over from scratch today.

The primary card I use for travel rewards is an American Express Optima credit card. An important note about the distinction between credit cards and charge cards: A credit card does not have to be paid in full every month. I do pay the card off completely, and I strongly recommend doing so, even if it is not required. Credit card interest charges are exorbitantly expensive, and they can be especially so on rewards cards. If you end up paying large amounts of interest and fees, it can substantially undermine the benefit of your travel rewards.

The nice thing about the Optima card is that it has no annual fee, yet it earns rewards. The bad thing about the Optima card is that American Express stopped offering it to new customers in 2009. Unless you are sent a targeted offer, you can no longer apply.

For an American Express option with no annual fee that earns travel rewards, the Blue Sky card has garnered positive online reviews and word-of-mouth. For every 7,500 points you earn, you receive a $100 statement credit that can be used to cover travel expenses booked any way you like. The drawback of American Express is that the cards are not accepted everywhere that Visa and MasterCard are taken. On the other hand, if you already have a Visa or MasterCard-backed debit card (or one of their credit cards), you can probably get along just fine using that to cover the instances where you can’t use your American Express. If I were looking for a new travel rewards card today, Blue Sky is the one I would likely investigate.

I also ran across the Barclaycard Arrival World MasterCard and the CapitalOne VentureOne Rewards card (a Visa offering) in my research. In the past, I carried a CapitalOne card with a rewards program that I used a lot. The card added a fee that I did not want to pay, and I had some other service issues with CapitalOne, so I dropped the card. But I would not rule out CapitalOne as an option, especially because the VentureOne Rewards does not have an annual fee.

I have no personal experience with Barclays products, but the Barclaycard MasterCard may also be worth investigating. The card offers a relatively high reward rate and seems to come with a fair amount of flexibility. It does, however, have an $89 annual fee. Though the fee is waived in the first year, all else equal, I would stay away from cards with an annual fee.

That said, I do pay a $29 annual fee for the travel rewards program on my Chase Visa card. I have had the Chase card for a long time, and it has a large credit limit. I also use it for large purchases for my business, so I tend to rack up a considerable number of points on a small number of transactions. I don’t know that a personal user, applying today, would get as good a deal or as much value for it. The Chase program is a little more cumbersome to use, since the travel has to be booked through Chase (either online or by phone), and in my experience, not every flight is available. Though I use the Chase card, it would likely not be my first recommendation to someone looking for a new travel rewards card.

If you use almost exclusively one airline or hotel chain, nearly all the major carriers offer proprietary cards that come with a variety of bonuses. The Delta Skymiles American Express, for example, allows you to waive the fee for your first checked bag. The Starwood American Express gives you automatic gold status in the hotel’s rewards program if you spend $30,000 annually, and lets you convert your hotel points to airline miles on several major carriers. However, locking yourself into one major travel provider could backfire in the event of a route change or if you want to travel somewhere your card’s travel partner can’t take you. While you may earn miles a bit faster, you sacrifice flexibility in doing so.

As when choosing any credit card, you will likely get a better deal and have more options if you have good credit. Do not be tempted to simply grab the card with the largest sign-up bonus. Pay attention to annual fee levels, APR, a low spending minimum before you’re eligible for rewards, restrictions on how you can book your travel and what travel you can book, and other “fine print” details. If you plan to travel internationally, it is also worth comparing the cards’ foreign currency conversion fees. The card that is right for you will ultimately depend on your personal travel habits and needs.

If you do your homework and have the discipline not to dig yourself into a hole paying the high interest on a carried-forward balance, a travel rewards credit card can be a great way to defray travel costs. And making travel cheaper is a great way to make it a little more comfortable.

Choosing an Over 65 Travel Insurance Policy

As a person gets older, it becomes more and more important for them to have an appropriate insurance policy to cover them when they are on holiday. Over 65 travel insurance is a very specific product that provides older travelers with the special cover that they need in order to be confident that they are going to be looked after during a trip.

There are a number of companies that specialize in offering products that are aimed at the over 65 travel insurance market, and these are intended to provide the best possible range of cover to meet the needs of the older traveler.

One of the main concerns that older travelers express when they are booking a trip is that they need to be sure that they will be fully covered in the event of an accident or illness when they are abroad. Many older people have long term medical conditions such as heart disease, and this means that they are of a higher risk of falling ill during a trip abroad.

Medical care overseas can be quite expensive, particularly for patients with complex conditions, and with this in mind, it is essential for older travelers to have enough cover to protect them in the event of things going wrong. There are a number of things that must be considered when purchasing over 65 travel insurance and these include the necessity to report any pre-existing medical conditions that are present, and to make sure that the destination that you have chosen to visit is covered by the policy.

You may find that travel insurance [http://www.qotr.co.uk/travel-insurance.php] policies for the over 65 market are more expensive than those offered for younger travelers, however it is important to remember that they are designed for travelers with a higher risk profile. The simple fact is that unless you are fully covered a valid travel insurance policy, you could end up with a hefty medical bill when you travel, so rather than skimping on cover, you should definitely invest in a policy that will give you peace of mind.

Shopping around to compare over 65 travel insurance policies has been made much more simple thanks to the insurance comparison websites such as Qotr, which offer prices from a panel of insurers, and allow you to compare the cover offered by different companies in order to find the one that best meets your particular needs.
