The Citi Prestige Trip Delay Coverage had been the best option available from all the different travel credit cards. If your flight was delayed more than three hours, the Citi Prestige would pay for up to $500 in expenses for things like meals, taxi/Uber charges, hotel and travel essentials. Towards the end of 2017, the coverage parameters were changed where you were no longer able to put in a claim for a missed connection. Previously if you missed a connecting flight and were stranded overnight, you could make a claim. Now your original flight had to be delayed more than three hours before you could get any reimbursement. That was a enough of a change to the coverage for me to reevaluate the usefulness of the coverage but then earlier this year Citi sent an email telling of even bigger changes that were coming. These changes took effect for travel booked on or after July 29, 2018.
When Walt and Roy Disney held a press conference in the now-demolished Downtown Orlando Cherry Plaza Hotel in November 1965 to announce plans for what would eventually become Walt Disney World, the entire world took notice. From when construction began in mid-1967 until the park opened in October, 1971, getting any sort of information or update was a special treat, especially in that mid-20th-century era before there were television recording devices in the home, never mind the internet where you could share something with the world with the touch of a button!
Fortunately, some of those broadcasted shows, home movies and lots and LOTS of still photographs were saved, and thanks to modern-day technology (all hail YouTube!), we can still see them today. One of my favorites is a TV show that wasn’t from the United States but, of all places, the United Kingdom. It was broadcast a few months before WDW opened, showed lots of construction and had very interesting interviews with cast Members and Central Florida locals.
When we see travel deals, we always want to spread the word. So as we see them, we make sure to let you know. They run the gamut from hotels to flights to points to miles to car rentals and even stuff you need while you’ll traveling, like equipment, Uber discounts, theme park tickets, food for when you’re on the road, etc.
Heads up that some of these deals might be really limited in time or amount, or some could go on for days or longer. Some deals might be good for some people and not so much for others. There may be better deals out there and we just don’t know about them. We take no responsibility for any transaction you may or may not do; we’re just telling you what’s we’ve seen that’s out there at that very moment and it’s up to you to decide if it’s something useful, beneficial and worth it for you, and if you can take advantage of it before it’s too late.
Here’s what’s out there today:
I’ll give you a little “behind the scenes” information about Your Mileage May Vary – Joe and I each have ongoing lists of what we plan to write about, and the lists are usually pretty different. After all, Joe usually writes about the points, miles and credit cards, while I tend to write the more, shall we say, fun articles. When we go out of town, we wind up with a bunch of new topics based on our trip, and we pretty much divvy them up based on interests. For example, Joe really likes writing hotel reviews so he writes those. Sometimes it’s a topic that we both want to write about and sometimes it’s one that neither of us really care about. For our past trip to the southwest, our visit to Hoover Dam was one of the latter. But since he already had more potential articles about the trip than I did, he said I had write the one about Hoover Dam.
Here we are at Sunday again. I hope y’all have enjoyed your weekend and sorry that Monday is starting to peek through. Anyway, here are some travel articles we’ve recently seen that we think you may enjoy.
