  • What to do if my travel agent booked a terrible hotel for me?

    My travel agent booked for me good plane tickets and a nice shopping tour. They also booked a hotel near those places. Only now I came up with the idea of checking the hotel reviews and all of them are terrible! What can I do if I already paid for it? They have a no refund policy.

Should I ask them to change the hotel for another hotel, a better one even if it s a little bit expensive?

  • Is 17 too young to travel alone?

    I'm thinking about visiting another country this summer. I'll be almost 18 by then. I've flown once, but I was young so I don't remember it.

    I'm thinking about visiting another country this summer. I'll be almost 18 by then. I've flown once, but I was young so I don't remember it. This time would be international, and I'd have 2 stops. Once I arrived there, I'd be staying with a friend and they would help me from that point onward. I'm just a little worried about getting there. Finding my way, stopping, possibly switching planes, etc all seems a little confusing to me and I'm worried about getting lost. Am I too young to do this or do you think I'd be able to? When I mentioned the idea to my mom, she was more scared than me and said "I don't want anyone to take you!" etc. That's just irrational fears, I hope? Any advice to calm both of us down? Lol.

    OCD pretty bad which involves phobias and obsessive thoughts - recently I had a friend come to my house from Georgia I live in New Jersey. He was only here for one night but he mentioned that he believed his mothers bed at his house at bedbugs which I have since verified is true. It seemed that the rest of his house was fine so he was only here for a night and that was 5 days ago, I did spray Teatree oil because I know it can prevent bugs .. today for the first time we have ransacked the house completely checking every bed vacuuming everything throwing out the vacuum bag cleaning going above and beyond to see if we could find any hint of a bedbug and we have found nothing, not even in the room that he stayed in.. we did buy foggers and diatomaceous earth, as well as a gallon of special hot spot spray. Tomorrow we plan on fogging a few rooms as well as doing another set of vacuuming and another set of laundry in hot water just to be sure... we were wondering if it would be necessary to take all of the clothes out of our closet's and rewatch all of them even though we have had no visibile beg bugs at all. Like I said I have terrible OCD and terrible anxiety so I am driving myself nuts with itching, no one else really is. Anyway just wondering if we really need to go into our closets take our clothes out and have them washed or tossed into the dryer on high heat I don't really know I'm asking if this is good enough or if we need to take even more extra measures

    Im 18 yrs old & its my first yr of college at a community college. Ive ALWAYS wanted to go away to college for several reasons 1 of them being my parents never got along and i hated their arguing. They separated a couple of months ago and things have gotten better but the reason I DIDNT go away is for several reasons, my mom talked me out of it bc of the expense and also I came up with an idea that in 2 yrs when im done with my basic classes i want to travel the country. im aware this is unrealistic by everyone telling me so i decided to give up on that. now my plan is in 2 yrs when im done w my basic classes at home i want to move somewhere out west. u need money for this and my parents arent going to help me out considering they don't have a lot of it but i do have a realiable job and im confident i can save up atleast 7000 in the next 2 yrs. i know living out west is expensive but id get a VERY cheap apartment and also a job out there. id want to continue my education at a community college that is in good distance from my apartment also id want it to be close to a national park or the beach depending on what state. im aware that houses/apartments would be expensive but im willing to live in a shitty apartment as long as its safe. i just want input on whether u guys think this a realistic goal? if not what can i do to make it more realistic? advice? point is, in 2 years i want to do something big but i need something thats practical so if you have any ideas please lmk

  • What's with the TSA not making those trays available for personal items?

    Flying from Orlando to Denver and back recently and going through the TSA line, normally in the past the TSA would allow people to put additional items like cell phones, keys, etc. in those plastic trays and put through the X-ray machine.

    Flying from Orlando to Denver and back recently and going through the TSA line, normally in the past the TSA would allow people to put additional items like cell phones, keys, etc. in those plastic trays and put through the X-ray machine. On my recent trip, they kept insisting to put everything in your carry on instead. In my case, I just had a laptop bag that contained my laptop, AC cords, etc. and had practically no room to hold my smart phone, keys, wallet, belt, etc. without all that stuff practically falling out of the bag as it was put on the rollers. Why don't they use those trays when needed? I mentioned this to the Orlando and Denver TSA as if anyone cared. I realize the TSA has a tough job, but this idiotic nonsense really pissed me off.

  • How long should it take a box/package to get From France to Colorado USA?

    Best answer: That depends on how it's shipped and isn't entirely predictable. Customs can take as long as they want/need to clear a package. Most things go through in a couple of days; however, I've known a few things to take as long as 8 weeks. Delays can occur if the customs paperwork is filled out incomplete,... show more

Most things go through in a couple of days; however, I've known a few things to take as long as 8 weeks. Delays can occur if the customs paperwork is filled out incomplete, incorrectly or is missing altogether. There can also be a delay if there is a question of whether duty (tax) is owed or even if the item is legal

  • US Visit Visa question?

    Best answer: The US doesn't require nor does it even consider 'invitation letters' (in fact no developed country does). You should apply separately for your tourist visas.
