TRAVELING WITH PETS
Travel with your pets.
Your Pets Safety:
There have been too many incidents of cats and dogs suffering from heat stroke after being left in a hot car.
Leave at least two windows (for cross ventilation) open slightly to provide fresh air.
Hot Dog!
You might consider one of the solar powered fans for the window. The fan fits in the window, the sun powers the fan, and air circulates within your vehicle.
NEVER leave animals in the car in hot climates during the warmer months, as even a short time in a hot vehicle can be injurious to your pet.

SECURITY TIPS AND INFORMATION
Warning: Some countries are particularly sensitive about photographs. In general, refrain from photographing police and military installations and personnel; industrial structures including harbor, rail, and airport facilities; border areas; and scenes of civil disorder or other public disturbance. Taking such photographs may result in your detention, in the confiscation of your camera and films.
Security Screening: Regardless of the wait and time spent in queue, it protects all on your flight. Be cooperative and patient with the Security Personnel when your luggage is being checked. It is their duty to make sure you have a safe flight. Do not carry cash if at all possible and do not walk around with large amount of money.
SLEEPING IN AIRPORTS
Sometimes when we least expect it, something happens to dampen our travel plans. Whether it is due to fog or other adverse weather conditions, be prepared for anything when you travel. Flight delays are to be expected and overnight delays do occur. Be prepared to bunk down in an airport if all else fails.
PACKING TIPS
Learn what not to bring.
Nail clippers and tweezers are safe again! The government has decided that the likelihood of tweezers and clippers being used as weapons to take over a plane is low enough that they will again be allowed in your carry-on luggage. Better forget about those nose-hair clippers, however, pointed tip metal scissors, no matter how small, are still prohibited.
Please NOTE that the rules for getting to passenger gates haven't changed. Simply put, NO ticket, NO gate pass. So any emotional family reunions will have to take place outside of the metal detectors.
LUGGAGE REQUIREMENTS
We have seen some travelers being required to leave some of their personal articles behind, because they were not aware of the weight requirements in place. This is very frustrating and stressful for all travelers and their companions, and families.
BOOKING YOUR TRIP
Procrastination does not pay. Planning a trip? book way ahead. Many discount fares require you reserve 7-21 days in advance. International fares, a 30-day advance purchase is often required.
Given the height of security at our airports, It is advisable to be at the airport at least three hours before flight time. It can make for a very stress free flight and a happy vacation.
