Earn A $10 Travel Card With Every Best Western Stay

Best Western hotels are running a promotion that gives you a $10 Best Western travel card for every stay completed before April 29, 2018,  If you ever stay at Best Western hotels it pays to sign up even if you don’t have a stay planned. You never know if your plans will change last minute. You can sign up for the promotion here.

The main problem I have with the promo is that the $10 gift card provided for an upcoming stay expires in about 120 days. They email the card to you so if you’re not going to use it yourself, it’s pretty much useless.

Here are the details from the Best Western website:

*An “eligible stay” for the purpose of this Promotion is defined as any stay of one or more consecutive nights at the same Best Western branded hotel, with the exception of a stay booked through an online travel agency, a stay booked through a tour operator, or a stay booked at a special discounted rate (see Best Western Rewards program rules for further information on eligibility criteria). Multiple check-in/check-out at the same property with less than 24 hours between check-out and check-in will count as one eligible stay. Eligible stays which take place during the Promotion Period must be completed on or before April 29, 2018 to be counted towards the Promotion. Eligible stays which take place during the Promotion Period, but which have a check-in date that overlaps the beginning of the Promotion Period, will be counted towards the Promotion.

Considering that stays at some Best Western hotels are in the sub $100 range, this promo will give a 10% rebate. I’m starting to look at Best Western hotels because while most hotel chains are trying to get away from cookie cutter design, each independently owned Best Western property has its own identity. I’m particularly interested in the Best Western Hibiscus in Key West after this write up by Loyalty Traveler. It looks to have the independent feel we like from in Key West instead of the typical chain hotel experience.

Safety Alert: What To NEVER Do With Your Boarding Pass

When you’re traveling by plane, you can sometimes be a little more disorganized than usual. You’re holding a carry-on, personal item, suitcase and maybe a coat and a bag of lunch, too. So when you’ve finally checked in, your boarding pass may be the least important things in your physical and mental list of “stuff.” That notwithstanding, here are some things you should NEVER do with your boarding pass:

Adventure Awaits: Go Rafting On Some Incredible Man Made Rapids

Have you ever gone white water rafting? I have…twice! The first time was in 2006 on the Colorado River, and the second time was in Montana, on the Flathead River, in 2010. Both times were when we were on Adventures By Disney tours. The trip on the Colorado River was incredible, with Class I and II rapids and I think one “almost a III” (rapids are labeled from Class I to Class V, depending on difficulty). The experience in Montana was during dry season and the rapids weren’t as strong, but let me tell you, it was still a whole lot of fun! Here’s some recently found video of the last rapid of the day during that Flathead River trip:

You’d think that part of the ability to go white water rafting would be going to where the rivers with the white water rapids were. But nope! If you’re just in it for the excitement of the rapids, there are several man made rapids in places where rivers can’t be found for miles. Here are some of them, in no particular order:
