Air Travel Tips for Pregnant Women

Travelling in pregnancy may not be a very enjoyable experience for most. However, it does not necessarily have to be a bad experience. Thousands of pregnant women travel via air every year and majority of them are able to avoid any kind of untoward accident. Appropriate knowledge and some carefulness is perhaps the prerequisite for a safe journey. Here are some useful tips to be kept in mind to ensure the safety of the pregnant women during air travel.

Consult the gynaecologist – Before planning a travel and booking airline tickets, consult a good gynaecologist to know whether you are fit to travel or not.

Book Direct Flights– Direct flights are always convenient for pregnant passengers as it saves them from the trouble of changing the aircraft repeatedly. Though airlines tickets for direct flights are comparatively expensive but the convenience they bestow is worth the money spent.

Book Best Seats in Advance– Plan you travel well in advance to make the best bookings possible. Compare flights and air ticket costs and then make online air tickets booking to reserve the seats available with extra legroom space.

Restrictions on Pregnant Travellers – Many airlines put certain restrictions on the travelling of the pregnant women during the late days of their pregnancy. For this, the airlines go through several medical aspects of the pregnant travellers including their due delivery date, number of babies mother is expecting, health issues, etc. For instance, pregnant ladies who book air tickets to Indiawith British Airways will face no travel restrictions up to the 36th week of pregnancy, provided the passenger is not expecting multiple births.

Packing– Pack loose and comfortable clothes to stay calm and relaxed during your holidays. Keeping a pair of comfortable and light shoes is also highly recommended as it can make your travel experience relaxing and stress-free.

Reach Airport Early– Reach airport early to avoid last minute rush as any sort of rush can make pregnant passengers feel stressful and uneasy.

If you need assistance from your personal helper till the entrance, you may collect an pass from the airport service desk.

Avoid Dehydration– Dehydration can be really bad for pregnant ladies during air travel. Try to consume sufficient amount of water to relish a comfortable travel experience. You may also carry your own water bottle to sip water at regular intervals of time.

Flight Safety – To ensure safety on the flight, keep your seat belts fastened all the time. Use handrails or seat backs to stand and move inside the aircraft. The flight attendants must be told about the presence of the pregnant traveller in the flight in advance so that they may pay extra attention to the traveller.a

Romantic Travel Resolutions

Travel resolutions for couples in this day & age are very important. Keeping in mind the fact that it’s difficult to plan one together, in an age of technology & instant everything.

Couples can plan to do something that they have rarely done.  It can be mild or totally wild – whatever suits one’s tastes.

Go white-water rafting. Rent a houseboat. Take a hot air balloon ride. Spend the night in a local bed and breakfast. Learn to scuba dive. Dance the whole night away under the stars. The choice is yours.

<!–[if !supportLists]–>·         <!–[endif]–>It’s also important to be mindful of not being rushed & impulsive about it. It is second nature to all of us, esp when it comes to finalizing our travel itineraries. From flight tickets, to hotel bookings, to activities. Planning ensures that you don’t have any loose ends and it invariably ends up saving your hard earned money.

<!–[if !supportLists]–>·         <!–[endif]–>You must not eat Burgers in Italy!

 

This is a mantra to be written in blood, while travelling on leisure. Its important to eat like a local.

Trying a new cuisine would not only tantalise your taste buds but is also usually a safe bet and is economic, too.

<!–[if !supportLists]–>·         <!–[endif]–>Travel Light

<!–[if gte vml 1]><!–[endif]–>

Designer clothes, fancy shoes, make – up, bags et all. The list is never ending especially when we are travelling in the initial years of our marriage. It is important for us to look our best for our spouse. Instead we could keep all of that for the social dos. A good amount of money will be saved and your ‘spinal cord’ that will thank you

<!–[if !supportLists]–>·         <!–[endif]–>You will not get enslaved to technology

<!–[if gte vml 1]><!–[endif]–>

Vacations are all about re-discovering yourselves & taking time out to reconnect with your partner. Spend that time in complete togetherness; enjoy each other’s presence & company. In our busy lives, it’s difficult to  take time out to travel: tight deadlines in office, financial worries etc. These things eat our peace of mind. Leading to burn out & therefore couples not communicating enough with each other when together.

Vacations are an excellent time to stay connected! However its understandable that the food has to be ‘Instagramed’ and you totally have to ‘check-in’ at the fabulous place you have just entered. But can’t it wait? The food would go cold and so will be the conversations. Clicking a picture or two is you must. But, seriously do not overdo technology and learn to enjoy the moment.

<!–[if !supportLists]–>·         <!–[endif]–>You will find time to interact with the locals

<!–[if gte vml 1]><!–[endif]–>

Its not possible to rely so heavily on google for information on – Best places to eat, best way to commute, best places to see etc.  A smart traveller like you should not hesitate to reach out to locals and discover the world that is beyond apps and internet.

<!–[if !supportLists]–>·         <!–[endif]–>You will not cramp up your itinerary

<!–[if gte vml 1]><!–[endif]–>

Not taking vacations at all or taking one and visiting too many places, both of them, would mean a messed up holiday and an over-drained you!

 As a couple travelling to spend quality time together – it’s important to visit a few places, soak in the experience with all of one’s senses. Wanting to cover as many places as possible & only wanting to plaster the place will not result in a pleasant tour together! It will only result in spending a huge amount of time on roads, commuting from one place to another.

<!–[if !supportLists]–>·         <!–[endif]–>You will not shy away from trying something new

<!–[if gte vml 1]><!–[endif]–>

For couples travelling, there is no limit to the opportunities for experimenting with exciting things! Doing things together as a couple, not only brings you’ll closer but also helps you understand each other better, while participating in adventurous activities together! For instance outdoor sports like sky diving, micro-lighting, wine-tasting, baking, kayaking, perfume-making make for perfect couple activities. This element of experimenting makes it all the more interesting!

It is absolutely essential to pick up a new activity – something that you’ll haven’t done before, something that excites you’ll, that challenges you’ll or scares you’ll. Your entire trip can be planned around it. Not only will it motivate you to take that trip, but will also make major alterations in your personality.

<!–[if !supportLists]–>·         <!–[endif]–>You will “Actually” travel

<!–[if gte vml 1]><!–[endif]–>

Those quaint villages, that exhilarating ride, that riverside camp, the snow clad mountains, those deep valleys are beckoning you; don’t hold yourself back.

Remember, you can always make more money, but you can’t always make memories! So, throw caution to air and actually travel…if you are looking for an appropriate time it is NOW!!  Its 2015 fella! If not now? When?!

<!–[if !supportLists]–>·         <!–[endif]–>Slow down and savor each moment while travelling. Live in the present and focus on the little details you’re experiencing right in the moment. The colour of the tropical water, the smell of the flowers, the taste of the local specialties. Don’t speed through destinations but have a richer, more memorable experience in the ones you visit.

Travelling the world

Don’t be fooled by the title, I don’t mean the movie Solo. I know I should’ve added another word to it but how else do you expect me to grab your attention? Smart, ain’t I? For all the people out there, what is it like to travel solo round the world? I personally haven’t travelled the world over. India is too big a country and there’s much more to explore. Given the chance and the opportunity when I am done travelling in India, I’ll most certainly travel abroad-solo. To help you make good choices, one has to simply log on to TravelHot for discounts on domestic flights.

Let’s get back to the topic I wanted to talk about: travelling solo. I have travelled long distances across several places and one thing I can say it’s quite an adventure! What is it like to travel alone internationally? I am yet to experience it. To understand what it is like, I scouted for some solo travel bloggers online trying to understand their mind-set.

One of the travel bloggers I ardently follow is Liz of http://youngadventuress.com. She has been solo travelling for year’s altogether and has some very good posts. Hers was the first blog I stumbled across and I am following her (virtually) ever since. She has some nice updates online and a perfect guide if wish to become a travel blogger (and earn). Trust me when I say this: it ain’t for the faint-hearted to venture in to the unknown among complete strangers, but hey, travelling is an adventure, right? Read on. Liz has some nice tips for blogging and travelling and her blog is a must read.

What you actually get from solo travel bloggers is not just guides, travel tips and directions. The bloggers share an experience and it’s their perspective on travelling that helps a great deal. Solo travelling has several benefits to it as well and I don’t think people who travel alone are a stingy lot who don’t wish to share their expenses, they are not selfish either.

Do you remember the song from these lines:

“Oh no not I. I will survive. Oh as long as I know how to love I know I’ll stay alive. I got all my life to live and I got all my love to give. and I’ll survive. I will survive. hey hey”

For those who aren’t able to guess it, it’s a song from the singer Donna Summer – I will survive. The perspective I’ll take from the lyrics here is not the love from a lover. Here, you can simply love yourself. Make this song your motto. Period.

The major thing to gain is new experiences, overcome your fears, discovering yourself and most importantly – nobody can take away your freedom! (I’m sure you’ve got a mental flashback from Braveheart; that was the idea!) Another benefit that I read across solo traveler’s blogs is it boosts your confidence to a great extent. If you’re not a regular solo traveler then it’s encourage-able to do so at least once a year.

Few of the things I’ve noticed that for Solo travelers the negative aspect of it is they will not be able to split the costs from hotel stays to cab fare. They have to manage things on their own. Traveling for long periods of time can also get lonely. Hell! You can’t even get a second opinion from your imaginary friend! Anything that you do in life will have some positive and negative aspects. What I have compiled above is just pointers, sort of quick-guide for the ‘wanna-be solo traveler’. If you have already made up your mind that you absolutely do not wish to be a solo traveler, you might as well check some amazing travel destinations what TravelHot has to offer, (I’ve heard they have some great offers!).

Best Time to Buy Airline Tickets

Air travel has become more of a necessity for most of us rather than a luxury. It helps to save on a lot of time, and arguably, is not as stressful as some other ways to travel. What can be quite a heartache though, is the feeling of being ripped off at times by the airlines, or the travel website. But hope still survives!

There is no mojo that can help you get the cheapest deals (although it would be fun to see someone dancing to the tunes of I believe I can fly, trying to appease the Airline Gods!). What would make for a delightful flight (without losing a hand and a leg to buy the tickets!) is planning ahead, and considering a few very simple things.

In this article, we give you some pointers that should help you buy tickets at the cheapest rate possible.

plane Day of the Week
If you can, look to fly sometime through the week. Tickets are believed to be the cheapest on Wednesdays, while traveling on Tuesdays and Saturdays too, won’t lighten your pocket by much. Ticket prices reach the ceiling on Fridays and Sundays.

plane Time of the Day
Ticket rates fluctuate up to three times a day. The cheapest times to fly are usually early in the morning, at or just after lunchtime, and during dinner time. If you are looking for even cheaper flights, you might want to carry your coffee mug and deal with bloodshot eyes, ‘cos the cheapest flights fly late at night!

plane Location
You need to consider if the place you are visiting is a popular tourist destination, or if a lot of people tend to travel there. If it is a busy place, the rates are likely to skyrocket if you choose to book within 3 months of the planned date.

plane Density of Flights
If there are a lot of carriers flying in and out of the place you intend to travel to, you have a lot more options at your disposal. You could probably land yourself a good deal if you opt in for a smaller carrier. Also, contrary to popular belief, connecting flights aren’t necessarily cheaper than non-stop flights, especially over shorter distances.

plane Time of the Year
Look around to find out the peak season in the area. This is usually around the local festive season or around the time when the weather is most pleasant there. The peak season also depends on the sites, and popular destinations in and around the place you visit. If, for instance, the place you visit has a very famous waterfall, the peak time ideally would be during the rains. Most people tend to think that going right in at this time would be just perfect to enjoy the beauty of the place. Seasoned travelers would know that the time immediately before and after this peak season is just as good, and at times even better.

Booking Air Travel

A long standing debate, among frequent fliers as well as rookies to the playing field, revolves around the best time to travel and the best time to book said travel. Right from finding the cheapest flights to getting them on the days you originally wanted, there are a few factors that affect your travel schedule, especially if you are travelling on a budget.

When To Book

To get the most out of your travel package, you should know when is the best time of book inexpensive flight tickets. According to a recent study, the ideal period to book your tickets is approximately 54 days before domestic travel and 126 days before international travel.

Points To Keep In Mind

When it comes to ideal times to book a flight, there are a number of factors to keep in mind. Not only is it important the number of days in advance you book it, but things like destination and airline are going to determine your end results as well. Here are a few pointers to keep in mind when looking for the best time to book your travel.

  1. Keep Your Destination In Mind
    When booking your tickets, keep in mind the place you are visiting. While some countries are prone to have cheaper airline tickets during winter, others tend to have ones that aren’t exactly cheap. For example, the cheapest month to travel to Canada, France, and Germany is November, which is different than that of July for Singapore and Thailand.
  2. Compare
    Sites like FareCompare would serve you well when trying to decipher the best times to travel, thus leading to the best time to book. The days of the week and the time of day affect the airfare just as much as the destination you are flying to. That said, make sure to research and compare prices before taking the leap.
  3. Remember To Be Flexible
    Although some choices may prove to be slightly inconvenient at first, it could save you money in the long run. For example, when you are booking your flight, you come across two choices, one that flies to a major international airport and one that is a few kilometres from the first. By opting for the flight that flies to the regional airport, you open yourself up to the choice of cheaper airfares.

Do Your Research
By planning your travel in advance, you get the option of learning all there is about the place you are visiting. Read about the best times to visit, which will give you an idea about the cheapest months to travel to it. Also, read articles that will better prepare you on finding the best prices in the country for the cheapest flights, if you have crossed the 54-day or 126-day time frame.

Instead, offer them with something that will be more adventurous for the children.
