If you do find a lower price than what she can offer she will be the first to tell you. The only item she charges a fee for is an airline ticket. It's a flat fee of $50-$100 per ticket. As anyone who's ever had to book a flight knows, that is a small price to pay to have someone else navigating that mess.
The focus of Pat's talk this week was travel insurance. She can't stress enough how vital it is that you have travelers insurance. No matter how much you want to go and think you will go on your trip, life and world events happen. So many things are completely out of your control. Don't risk loosing thousand of dollars on a well planned trip due to an unplanned emergency.
Here are a few travel tips from Pat:
- Always get travel insurance
- Make sure your passport is valid until 6 months after your international trip
- Bring a small amount of local currency with you and then exchange more money when your there (you'll usually get a better exchange rate)
- Make sure your phone works where you are going
- Bring inverters and converters for your electronics if visiting another country
