Here is some of the best travel news and notes from around the Internet:
- If you’re transiting through Dubai, you’ll now pay more in taxes. We just got back from there (though we were “stuck” on only a 777), though now that Alaska Airlines has gutted their award chart for Emirates, I’d imagine most of us will be flying through there a lot less!!! 🙂
- The latest on Traveling Dad talks about 5 items that you will definitely lose at Disney. Thankfully when we were there I didn’t lose any of those things – but if you’re a Disney guy, you might be interested in my top 5 Disney World tips for a budget traveler or the video of how long my daughter screams when she finds out we’re going to Disney World?
- American Airlines has changed their fare rules, making it harder (read: more expensive) to book multi-city fares. View from the Wing shares a tip on how you can beat them at their own game and get your tickets for much cheaper!
- This was a great roundup from Doctor of Credit on how old you have to be to get a credit card (or be an authorized user on one). With 6 kids, this is an important topic for me!
- Emirates Fifth Freedom flight from New York to Milan has generated a lot of low fares (and animosity from US carriers). Now Emirates has their eye on a new country – Hungary, which currently does not have nonstop service from the US.
