Dog is My Co-Pilot: Tips for Taking a Road Trip Alone with Your Furkid | Lifestyles

Pack your car for convenience

Make a thoughtful list of everything you’ll need, keeping in mind that stopping for new snacks or supplies with your pet will be a challenge. Arrange the space in your car so everything you need for your pet is easy to access when he needs it, including pet travel bowls, treats, waste bags, medication, leashes, first aid kit, toys, and blankets.

Potty breaks

Meeting Rover’s potty needs is simple: head to the nearest rest stop, and make sure you keep waste bags and supplies on hand to clean up after him. 

Managing your own potty breaks, however, is a bit more complicated. Pets shouldn’t be left alone in a car, so what can you do when nature calls?  Find a pet-friendly business, and use their restroom. Pet stores like Petco and PetSmart, and pet-friendly hotel chains like Red Roof Inn, La Quinta, and Motel 6,

Holidays: Simon Calder shares travel advice and bookings tips for Italy, Greece and beyond | Travel News | Travel

Holidays are at the mercy of the shrinking travel corridor list. Every week, Transport Secretary Grant Shapps shares the latest updates to the ‘safe’ list of where Britons can go without having to quarantine. And every week, more destinations are removed – and it’s feared more will be axed later today.

“We just don’t know,” Calder said.

Italy and Greece are currently among a handful of countries Britons can travel to without any restrictions at all.

However, rising cases could see the two hotspots moved to the quarantine list this week.

“It’s entirely possible the Greek mainland might be put on the no-go list tonight, or Italy, we just don’t know,” said Calder.

“We don’t know exactly what the government’s grounds are for putting places on but no go list,” the expert continued.

“We do know that it’s much tougher to get off the no go less than

The holiday season is historically the busiest travel period in the United States. Between Thanksgiving and Christmas, millions of Americans routinely board planes, hop on trains or hit the road to see family.

But what will the season look like in a pandemic year?

While travel numbers are slowly recovering from coronavirus lows — Transportation Security Administration records show that the number of people flying is climbing daily, although the rate is still below half of what it was in 2019 — many Americans remain unsure about their holiday travel plans.

Mark Crossey, the director of sales at travel search engine Skyscanner, says that with many states lifting restrictions and people longing to be reunited with family, searches and bookings for the holiday season are climbing. According to a survey conducted by travel booking app Hopper, 39 percent of Americans surveyed plan to travel during the holidays this year, while

Rental car tips: How to find the best prices during covid-19

For many Americans, embarking on road trips has been a way to keep traveling during the pandemic. And if you’re not a car owner, now may be a good time to rent one.

According to data from CheapCarRental.net, a car-rental comparison engine, road trip travel is up, but the travel industry as a whole is still hurting. As a result, rental car rates in the United States are down by between 15 and 40 percent, depending on the region.

Unlike airplane tickets that can change in price by the minute, the price of renting a car isn’t a mystery.

“Between now and Christmas, your flight might change a hundred times,” says Liana Corwin, the travel expert for Hopper, the flight and hotel booking app. “With car rentals, they’re a little bit more static.”
