Every day I personally look through hundreds of blog posts from the best travel blogs on the internet. When I find posts that I feel would be valuable to you, I put them together in a Travel Blog News article. Today I found a few travel articles that meet the standards. Here are the best of the best from today.
The Points Guy has partnered with United Airlines to raise money for the Make A Wish Foundation. They’re giving away a whopping one million miles to the winner of their raffle. To enter you can donate at least $10. With some of the larger donation amounts you will receive some swag along with your entries. The article also shows a few ways you could spend your million United miles if you’re the winner. My favorite on the list is number 1 with first class going all the way around the world.
Emily from Million Mile Secrets has put together a list of toys that travel well with children of all ages. She compiled a group of toys for babies, toddlers, and young children of age three or higher. A flight of five hours is a long time to keep your child occupied in a confined space. If you have children, let us know what their favorite toys to bring on the plane are in the comments. I’d love to hear, for future reference!
If you’re looking to go to Hawaii in the near future and can fly out from the west coast, there is a great deal going on. The sale has flights in September for as low as $247 or 16,000 Chase Ultimate Rewards. That award redemption for a round trip flight to Hawaii is a steal! Usually the best deal around takes 25,000 Ultimate Rewards transferred to British Airways. If you’ve never been to Hawaii, you need to go. It’s my favorite place in the world!
Have you recently had any flights where the flight time seemed extraordinarily long for the distance you were traveling? I definitely have, but didn’t realize why. This article makes complete sense to why airlines would be fluffing the estimated arrival time of your flight. My wife and I actually experienced this on our recent flight from Washington DC (DCA) to Dallas (DAL). Our flight was delayed nearly an hour, but somehow we actually got there before our expected arrival time. I was confused and didn’t think we could have made up that much time in the air. This gimmick would make sense to why we made it to Dallas on time. Have you experienced this yet?
I’m thinking about donating to The Points Guy’s fundraiser and then hopefully winning that million miles! I would love to be able to take a round the world trip, and help donate to a great cause at the same time. Good luck if you decide to donate as well. Leave us a comment about any of these blog posts. We’d love to chat with you about them! On with the week…
