- Some of the hardest premium cabin awards to find nowadays are direct flights from the western United States to Europe. The Frugal Travel Guy has some tips on how to score one of those sought-after tickets!
- Traveling internationally with kids? Travis has a post at One Mile at a Time about how to use Global Entry with kids to skip the long immigration lines.

- Want to travel like it’s 1950? Raising Dick and Jane have 6 tips for how to simplify travels (and do it cheaper too!) One of the tips was to ditch the electronics – something we did on a recent 17 hour trip – it worked great!
