So why choose the Redneck Riviera, when there‘s much closer beaches in Galveston? Pretty simple, really. Gulf Shores provides a nicer beach than Galveston, and it‘s a lot closer [] This article was originally published on Travel Codex. Read it at Sun, Fun

PSA: Free Checked Bags on Alaska Airlines by Linking BofA Credit Card to Mileage Plan Number

Do you fly Alaska Airlines? Do you have the Bank of America Alaska Airlines Visa Signature Credit Card? Do you ever pay to check your bag when you fly Alaska Airlines?

Big Changes Coming to the Hyatt Best Rate Guarantee Policy

Most of the major hotel programs have a Best Rate Offer Guarantee of some sort that essentially exists to encourage you to book directly with the hotel itself instead of booking via a third-party site like Expedia, Priceline, etc. These programs all have a claims process in the event you do indeed find a cheaper publicly available rate for the exact same room type on your travel dates. This sounds simple enough, but the details for how this is ha

Hyatt Devalues Their Best Rate Guarantee

The major hotel chains put a lot of effort into getting you to book directly with them rather than through online travel agencies like Orbitz, Expedia, etc. That‘s because hotels have to pay a commission of 10%+ when you book through an online travel agency, which they don‘t have to pay when you book directly with them. This is one of the main reasons that a couple of years back that hotel chains began offering members only rates for

Air France‘s New (Delusional?) Airline, Joon

Last year Air France first announced their intentions to launch a low cost carrier, assuming they could get their unions onboard with it (which was the biggest obstacle).

This includes things like them cutting back the food choices in their lounges, eliminating chauffeur service outside the UAE, etc. Well,
