Considering traveling overseas? Check out Turkish Airlines that flies to more countries than any other airline–90 in all. The airline flies out of NY, DC, Chicago, and LA–with Houston coming soon–and it’s twice been named Europe’s best airline. Forget those jokes about airline food–in coach, your menu will remind you of a business class menu. And in business class, an on-board chef prepares your meals. Details here.
How do you avoid blackout dates when you want to collect reward travel on airlines, at hotels, or with rental car companies? Carry an American Express card that earns you Membership Rewards Points. There are no blackout dates for obtaining travel awards, an important detail during holiday periods when most reward programs won’t redeem miles or points. And if you carry a Platinum card, each year you’ll receive a $200 credit that you can apply to a specific airline. Then use that $200 to pay for in-flight meals, baggage fees, ticket change fees, and access to airport lounges. More details here.
