Checklist for Your Trip Take Travel Insurance

Travel Insurance Whenever you make plans to travel somewhere, you make a check list of items to do and to pack for the trip. However, majority of people forget to put in a very important task onto that list. This task is buying a travel insurance policy. Some of you may question the need for spending money on travel plan insurance when you know that you are only going to be out for a few days or weeks.

The question is of great importance because no one can control or predict when any kind of emergency will take place. A travel insurance policy is designed to take such situations into account and ensure that you do not suffer by getting caught in them. The travel insurance policy would achieve this goal in multiple ways. The following are some of the methods through which a travel policy helps you.

1. Medical protection: A travel insurance policy would ensure that you do not have to face the difference of currency exchange rates in case you get caught in a situation where you need some form of medical attention. You may require medical attention due to accidents, catching new diseases and even if there is recurrence of old health problems. A travel policy would provide you with protection against the financial implications of any kind of medical treatment abroad.

2. Loss of checked in luggage: It has happened many times when a traveller has reported loss of checked in luggage. Such a situation can also result in major financial losses as you would either have to wait for your luggage or buy new ones. Buying new clothes abroad can be fairly expensive. However, if you have a travel insurance policy then you can rest easy because the policy would provide you protection against such a thing happening.

3. Passport loss: Loss of passport can have serious effects in a different country. Your passport is your identity when you are abroad and losing it means that you will not be allowed to leave the country unless you get it reissued. This would take effort on your part and would also mean that you would have to spend more time in the country. A travel insurance policy would provide you with compensation if you do happen to lose your passport.

Putting down a travel insurance policy on your checklist can make a huge difference to your trip. Not only will you be able to enjoy the experience of a pleasant trip but also take care of situations that require immediate financial attention.

Plan a Budget Vacation to Tokyo

Vacation to TokyoPlacing the words ‘Tokyo’ and ‘cheap’ together seem to be a perfect example of an antithesis. Let us, however, tell you that doing Tokyo on the cheap is possible. Read through this article to know how you can plan an affordable vacation to the Japanese capital.

One of the most dynamic cities in the world, with over 12 million inhabitants, Tokyo is a sheer delight to see. Not that it is among the world’s most beautiful cities, but it definitely strikes a chord with its subtle balance between the past and the present. Take a stroll in any direction, and you are sure to stumble upon something most unusual and weird―something that you never knew existed. And yet, you will find the Japanese people being passionate about it, speaking of it with an intense sense of belonging.

In fact, the Japanese are passionate about everything, from their traditions and culture to all things new. And this is precisely the reason why the Japanese capital comes across as a complete package―a classic example of ‘old meets new’. Plus, the warm and ever-helping nature of the Japanese people will urge you to extend your stay, and make you regret if you don’t.

Tokyo on a Budget

It is a well-known fact that Tokyo is expensive. In fact, according to the recent Business Insider survey (2014), Tokyo has been ranked as the 19th most expensive city in the world after Melbourne, Australia. Owing to this, it is but obvious that a vacation to the Japanese capital will make you shed a lot of bucks; however, those traveling on a tight budget, need not be disappointed. I brings to you some useful tips to help you plan a vacation to the capital of the shōgun without having to burn a hole in your wallet. Here’s how.

When to Go

◆ As with most cities of the world, Tokyo’s high season and low season depend largely on its weather.

◆ Most tourists opt to travel to the city either during spring (March to May) or autumn (September to November). During these two seasons, the weather is very favorable―pleasant, warm days and of course, beautiful cherry blossoms and dramatic foliage all around.

◆ However, this is also the season when most accommodations around the city are full, and very expensive as well.

◆ Winter (December to February) and summer (June to August) comprise the city’s off-seasons.

◆ In winter, temperatures often drop below the freezing point, and summer is very hot and humid. Moreover, the city experiences torrential rains around late-June, and August is still worse.

◆ While these seasons witness a much less tourist influx, these are great times to be in the city for budget travelers (if you are ready to face the adversities of the weather, that is).

◆ You will not only be able to escape the crowds, but also get the best possible bargains on accommodations, and maybe even crack an affordable last-minute deal.

Where to Stay

◆ As a form of budget accommodation, the concept of capsule hotels is very famous in Tokyo (and in the other Japanese cities). These are low-budget lodgings, made of modular plastic and/or fiberglass blocks in the form of small capsules, placed one above the other. Each of these capsules can accommodate only one person at a time, and are equipped with basic amenities like a sleeping mattress and a small television set.

◆ It, however, needs to be noted that capsule hotels lack basic safety standards, and are mostly men-only, but few also accommodate females. On the contrary, hostels often prove to be cheaper and more comfortable places to stay, even if they mean compromising a bit on one’s privacy.

◆ While hostels located in and near the city center and popular spots can be a bit pricey, look for those located on the outskirts instead. These will offer you the same kind of facilities at lower prices.

◆ For those planning to spend a majority of their time within the city center, opt to stay near it, in order to save money and time on transportation, which is also on the expensive side in Tokyo.

◆ Budget travelers, looking for a homely atmosphere may also opt for a hospitality exchange. You get to stay with a local family for free, and there are also ample opportunities to meet and interact with the other locals. Hospitality exchange is particularly popular with youngsters, traveling on frugal means.

How to Get Around

◆ By far, the cheapest way to get around Tokyo (or any city, for that matter) is by foot. It is lovely walking around the city―take any random lane, and you can discover some of the most unexpected, yet exciting things about the city. And, it is needless to say that strolling is free-of-cost.

◆ Another good option to travel around Tokyo on the cheap is to rent a bike. Cheap bike rentals are available in different parts of Tokyo and its suburbs, and they are very convenient, in that you can plan your own custom biking tour across the city.

◆ The Tokyo Subway System, the city’s extensive network of underground rail routes, is also a pretty inexpensive mode of transport, by Tokyo standards. However, you are charged according to distance so, the longer the distance, the pricier will be your ticket price. But they are tourist-friendly, in that there are a lot of signboards and announcements in English language. Nonetheless, there are some cons as well. These trains are very crowded, especially during peak hours, so much so that the crowds may deter you from getting onto one of them. Moreover, each of these metro stations closes down at about 1am and starts operating at about 5am in the morning so, time your travel so that you do not get stranded; isolated stations can be unsafe.

◆ Buses are also cheap, but if you do not have basic knowledge of Japanese, it may get extremely difficult for you to navigate. Especially, communicating with the bus conductor gets very tough, as more often than not, he will not know English or any other foreign tongue. Plus, like trains, even buses are crowded, but they are well-connected and can take you to literally any corner of the city.

◆ Unless extremely necessary, never ever go for hiring a taxi. Taxis in Tokyo are indeed very expensive, so much so that a single taxi ride can completely destroy your budget.

Where to Eat/Drink

◆ Eateries and restaurants located in downtown Tokyo and in the city’s popular parts tilt towards the expensive side. For a wholesome budget meal, head to one of the blue-collar areas of the city such as Ueno or Ikebukuro.

◆ Areas with large populations of youngsters and students, like Yoyogi and Harajuku, are also good places to find food on the cheap. You will find numerous fast-food joints in these areas, alongside several cheap restaurants, offering full, good quality meals.

◆ The conveyor belt sushi restaurants are located in several parts of the city, wherein you can choose your own sushi from the conveyor belt. These are often busy, owing to their inexpensiveness and fast service, but you will get some really tasty meals in there.

◆ A good number of Japanese curry houses, fast-food, and ramen shops are spread across the city, even in the city center, from where you can buy small, but filling budget meals.

◆ Tokyo is famous for its street food, which offers delicious local flavors at affordable prices. Budget travelers can also buy packaged meals from grocery stores, which cost much less than restaurants.

◆ While in Tokyo, you cannot ignore the numerous vending machines, found in large numbers, everywhere around the city. These coin-operated machines sell hot beverages, juices, sodas, cans of beer, apart from typical Japanese meals (curry and rice) and ready-to-eat soups.

What to See/Do

Tokyo
In the clockwise direction, starting from top-left―Rainbow Bridge, Minato, Tokyo; Tokyo Imperial Palace, Chiyoda, Tokyo; Tokyo cityscape with illuminated Tokyo Tower; Yoyogi Park, Shibuya, Tokyo.

◆ While most attractions in Tokyo charge an admission fee, the good news is that there are several cheap and free things to see and do in and around the city. As mentioned before, a free stroll can give you an insight into some of the most fascinating aspects of the city and its culture. But, there is more!

◆ Most shrines, temples, and palaces of Tokyo do not have an entry fee. This also includes, apart from the other attractions, the Tokyo Imperial Palace, which may be accessed free if you plan to take a self-guided stroll, rather than a guided tour.

◆ Moreover, the Sensō-ji temple, one of the oldest Buddhist temples in Japan, can also be accessed without any charge by all the visitors. There is a 200-meter-long shopping street in front of the temple gate, which has several O-mikuji (fortunes written on strips of paper) stalls, visited by a good number of tourists. You can also try out your luck here!

◆ Furthermore, the fourth-largest urban park in Tokyo, the Yoyogi Park, is also a free attraction. It is a great place for a quick morning jog and to listen to live performances by street musicians.

◆ Another great place to be, especially if you are a fish lover, is the Tsukiji fish market. It is located very close to the Tsukiji train station, and so is an easy walk up there. Every morning, at about 5 a.m., there is a tuna auction held here, which is quite an interesting experience. Though you can visit the auction for free, remember that they let a limited number of tourists in each day, and so, you have to reach the spot really early. However, if you miss out on the auction, you can still roam around the market, and gorge on some delicious sushi and sashimi for breakfast.

◆ Harajuku boasts of a very lively shopping and entertainment scene. There are a lot of specialty stores around the area from where you can buy items such as books, electronics, and souvenirs for cheap. Apart from these, Tokyo also has a good number of open-air antique and flea markets operating on the weekends near major shrines.

Other Money-saving Tips

◆ Bowling alleys and cinemas in Tokyo tend to be on the expensive side. Instead, head to the Sony Building in the city’s Ginza ward, and indulge yourself in some free console games.

◆ Most cinemas and museums in Tokyo offer discounted rates for students, seniors, and children. Keep looking for such offers to save money.

◆ If you are planning to city-hop from Tokyo, purchase the Japan Rail Pass (JR Pass) well in advance before you leave home. It is meant for long-distance train travel, and can be used only by foreign tourists. It comes with the validity of 7, 14, and 21 consecutive days, and is not available for sale in Japan.

Though people always find it oxymoronic to spend a budget vacation in Tokyo, it is possible to do the city on the cheap. Planning ahead and wisely is the key, and one of the most expensive cities in the world can turn out to be an affordable package. So, if you thought that Tokyo probably wouldn’t fit into your budget, it’s time you think again, and get going to one of the most dynamic cities in the world.

Famous Beaches in Los Angeles

Los Angeles BeachLos Angeles is famous for more than its longstanding association with Hollywood. Read on, to know more about its fantastic beaches, which are a huge draw for tourists the world over.

Los Angeles is a popular travel destination for tourists from all over the world. What attracts visitors to this enchanting city is not just the beguiling cityscape and fascinating skyline, but the natural endowment of stunning beaches all around it. It has all sorts of beaches; wave-filled exciting beaches for the surfer, beaches for the (non-pervert) people watcher, and tranquil beaches for the whole family.

Here’s a primer on having a beach vacation in Los Angeles.

Los Angeles Beach Guide

California is the best known summer destination in the U.S., and Los Angeles, the second most populous city in the country, lies at the very heart of it. Due to its coastal location, LA experiences sunny, 80-degree weather all year round. From Malibu to Santa Monica, here is a list of the best of Los Angeles’ seaside hotspots.

Bringing your pets along is generally not allowed on these beaches. Camping, having a barbecue on the beaches, and alcohol consumption is also not allowed. Parking on these beaches usually requires a payment of USD 5-10 (except for the privately owned Paradise Cove, which charges USD 25). The public beaches are open at all times, though the seaside facilities maintain variable and disparate schedule. Restrooms are available on all beaches except El Matador, which is not run by the state. For details about particular beaches, you can call the Los Angeles County Lifeguard at 310/457-9701.

NOTE: This article enlists beaches situated in the entire Greater Los Angeles Area, rather than just the city proper. A point to remember is that Malibu is a smoking-free area.

Manhattan Beach
Santa Monica Beach
Surfrider Beach
Zuma Beach
El Matador Beach
Laguna Beach
Paradise Cove
Venice Beach

Manhattan Beach
Address: 400-500 The Strand, Manhattan Beach, CA 90266
Distance from Downtown LA: 20 miles
One of the most famous beaches on America’s western seaboard, Manhattan Beach is a versatile beach, catering to almost every demand. It has beach revelers in their hordes, it offers excellent surfing opportunities, with the pier and El Porto being among the popular spots, and there are volleyball courts strewn about. The nearby seafood restaurants are also famously good. It also houses the Roundhouse Aquarium on its pier. Apart from its beaches, the city of Manhattan Beach also has numerous public parks; the Polliwog Park is the most popular.

Santa Monica
Address: 380 Santa Monica Pier, Santa Monica, CA 90401
Distance from Downtown LA: 16 miles
This two-mile long stretch of glorious sand is probably the most famous beach in LA. Its length allows for bike rides, volleyball games, or long, leisurely strolls on the soft sand. Its pier houses a small amusement park, and various activities are popular on the beach, including outdoor chess and beach gymnastics.

Surfrider Beach
Address: 23050 Pacific Coast Hwy, Malibu, CA 90265
Distance from Downtown LA: 26 miles
This awesome beach in Malibu is famous―obviously―for the fascinating surfing opportunities it offers. When the surfing bug strikes, there is no better beach at scratching that itch than Surfrider. Even if you are not into surfing, the general ambiance and upbeat mood of the place is infectious, and warrants a visit.

Zuma Beach
Address: 30000 Pacific Coast Hwy, Malibu, CA 90265
Distance from Downtown LA: 36 miles
Situated close to Surfrider Beach, Zuma is a complete mirror image of its bustling neighbor. It is renowned as a relaxing retreat. The waves here are not large enough to attract surfers. It also has a few volleyball courts, but its USP is undoubtedly the beautifully blue waters and the soft, inviting sands. Perfect for a family outing!

El Matador Beach
Address: 32100 Pacific Coast Hwy, Malibu, CA 90265
Distance from Downtown LA: 39 miles
Situated about 6 miles north of Malibu, this secluded beach is perfect for a personal or romantic getaway. Its isolation and relative lack of fame means that there are no lifeguards, so be careful if you want to go for a swim. It is the perfect place to catch your breath away from the hectic LA life, or to steal a sweet moment or two alone with your special someone.

Laguna Beach
Address (Victoria Beach): Victoria Dr & Sunset Ter, Laguna Beach, CA 92651
Distance from Downtown LA: 50 miles
The city of Laguna Beach is well-known as a seaside resort. However, apart from its unarguably fantastic beaches, headed by Victoria Beach, it also offers something for the art lover, thanks to its Art Museum. It is also home to the Pageant of the Masters, a festival including recreations of famous works of art by live performers.

Paradise Cove
Address: 28128 PCH Malibu, CA 90263
Distance from Downtown LA: 34 miles
This private beach can be crowded and is expensive, but there’s a reason why it is so popular―it’s fantastic! A definite must-visit for a dip in the ocean (surfboards are not allowed), followed by a lovely seafood lunch. Book a ‘cabana’ if you have large groups; these large gazebos can house up to 30 people, and can be rented at less than almost USD 400 per day. However, BBQs or pets are not allowed, but catering is available.

Venice Beach
Address: 3100-2700 Ocean Front Walk, Venice, CA 90291
Distance from Downtown LA: 17 miles
Complete with ‘canals’, this namesake of the hugely popular Italian city makes up for what it lacks in antique charm with a fantastic boardwalk at the banks of the Pacific. Bodybuilders, guitarists, jugglers, and various other street performers abound on this boardwalk, which is a scene that must be experienced in order to be understood. Even for someone who hates seas, just watching the sheer variety of performers and spectators can be a fun experience.

These were some of the best beaches in the Greater Los Angeles Area. The city may have gained repute due to its connection with Hollywood, but its natural beauty and scenic beaches hold a different cast altogether. Spare a lot of time in your Californian vacation for Los Angeles’ beaches, and do not forget to pack beach wear!

Things You Should Know Before Approaching Car Rental Companies

Depending on where you are going on holiday, and how long you will be there for, you may need to rent a car for part or all of your trip. There are many benefits to doing this, such as it saves your own car, and it makes travelling abroad quicker and much easier, but there are some things that you need to know before you book your vehicle:

Do Your Research In Advance

One of the biggest mistakes that people make is booking their rental car at the very last minute, or even worse – waiting until they are at the airport! This will not only result in you spending much more money than you need to, it also limits the options available to you.

Start researching early, and check about for the best deals. You can even check out for online coupons available to make this even cheaper for you, and you can do your best to negotiate yourself the best price possible.

Call Once You’ve Booked

It might seem like a pain, but if you decide to book your rental car online, it’s advisable to pick up the phone and call, just to check it’s all gone through. It’s sad to say that some people have had bad experiences where they have turned up just to find no cars available for them. Speaking to someone can also ensure that you secure any extras – such as child seats – that you require.

Get Insurance!

Your own car insurance won’t cover a rental car, so do some research and get the right insurance to make sure that you’re covered in any event. You don’t have to buy insurance from the place that you rent the car, so don’t ever be pressured into buying something more expensive. This insurance can cover theft, accidents, and even damage to any other cars – so decide what you want and set about finding the best price for that.

Protect Yourself

Check The Condition of the Vehicle When Renting A Car and do that before you pull off the lot so you can ensure that the staff know the condition of the car before you leave. Maybe even take photographs and video evidence so you don’t end up getting stuck with a nasty bill at the other end. You don’t want to end up paying for damage that isn’t your fault. Look for any dents and scratches in the exterior, and if you find yourself with any questions or concerns at all, don’t hesitate to bring them up to the staff.

Check Company Reviews

And finally it’s always a good idea to check the company’s reviews before you dive in to booking your car, to ensure that what you’re getting is a good service from a reputable company. Of course, there will likely always be one or two bad reviews, but as long as the majority of them are good, you can make your booking with much more confidence.

3 Reasons to Buy an RV for Your College Trip

Spring break is always a popular time for college friends to travel. Summer is a great time to meet up as well, and even winter break offers plenty of opportunities to see what the nation or even continent has to offer. When planning your next trip with college friends – whether it’s one friend or a dozen – buy an RV.

Save on Hotels and Air Fare
Plane tickets for half a dozen people get pricey fast. Add in hotel room costs and you’re looking at way more than most college students on a ramen budget can afford. An RV bought from WilkinsRV.com is a mode of travel, a hotel on wheels and a restaurant replacement. (Buy groceries and make your own meals on the trip to save even more money.) Save your cash for the activities you want participate in during your trip and make a college students’ budget go further.

Split the Cost with a Group
Buying an RV for your sorority or fraternity makes the most sense because the money can at least partially come from dues and the RV can stay with the Greek organization long after its current members graduate so the group really gets its money’s worth. If you’re not part of a Greek organization or you want your other friends to join you on the trip, split the cost of the RV upfront and co-own the vehicle. You might also consider taking a loan out in one person’s name and having the others chip in toward the monthly cost whenever they join the owner for a trip.

Have More Fun
There’s nothing like an RV for a sense of camaraderie, just like college dorms. There are a number of large models that are practically like college dorms on wheels, where everyone has their own comfortable sleeping space and there’s a shower, kitchen, TV area and more. In fact, the right RV might prove even larger than the dorm space you’re used to sharing. If there’s one group of people who will definitely have fun bonding on a long road trip in a virtual dorm on wheels, it’s college students.

Used RVs in good condition always trade in for more value than you might expect. Even if you don’t plan to keep the RV in the fraternity or sorority, you will get a good portion of your investment back when you sell it. More vacation possibilities open up to you and your friends when you buy an RV.
