Why renting a car can be better than joining a tour

When you’re traveling to new places, it’s fairly reasonable to expect that you would be joining a tour to go around and be familiar with the place. Given that, you might want to consider renting a car instead of joining a tour. If you’re going to places like the Cayman Islands, googling Rent-a-car grand cayman or Car rental cayman islands would yield some surprising results. You’ll find that renting your own car can actually be a whole lot cheaper. Buy a book or visit travel blogs to know what places to visit, and make your own schedule. You will never have to wake up at the crack of dawn and eat in places you might not like to eat in.

Moreover, you’re not limited to whatever itinerary tour guides have in store for you. Depending on where you get your rental car, you can choose from a wide variety of vehicles that range from compact cars, mid-size sedans, luxury vehicles, and even convertibles. Another thing about tours is that these groups can get so big sometimes that you will no longer be able to take in and experience all of the places that you visit. And of course, there are also some members of the tour group that you can’t get along with. These are but a few things that you need to consider when you’re traveling to another country. When renting a car, you don’t have to worry about all of these things because you’re in control of everything.

Tipping going to an extreme

April 16, 2014 by · Leave a Comment 

We Americans tend to tip every waiter at the restaurant, bartenders, our hair stylist and the list goes on and on. It is not customary to tip a flight attendant. Some may even get wide eyes at just the suggestion of it. Should you tip a flight attendant during a flight?

There are testimonials of those who tipped flight attendants who provided an excellent service during a long flight. On the other hand there are stories of flight attendants who accepted tips at the insistence of the passenger and threw in few extra drinks or other free goodies.

Here’s where it gets complicated. Typically you tip after an excellent service, let’s say in a restaurant. But when you are flying, many thinks tipping should be done at the begging of the flight with anticipation for good service. That is to some morally unethical amounting to a bribe. That may be why some airlines ban tipping altogether. However, tipping at the end of a flight for going the extra mile to make your flight much more enjoyable should be appropriate. Some surveys indicate that about 25 to 30 percent of flying public tip flight attendants. This is a hard one. You will be the judge.
