Airlines Checked Baggage Policies


For starters, see the baggage policies of every airline that flies in and out of the U.S.  Many airlines charge fees for checked luggage depending on type and class of service.  The actual fees vary from airline to airline and are subject to the policy of the individual carrier.  Just be aware that these policies are subject to change.




Currency Confusion?


What's your money worth/what's their money worth when traveling out of the country?  Use this "Universal Currency Converter" for a fast, simple up-to-date way to find out. You can even learn about currency codes and symbols.




Which Way Do You Want to Travel?


While there are many ways to tour the world, the most prominent are escorted trips, hosted tours, and independent travel.


Escorted trips include all arrangements from start to finish. Here, you will be traveling with a group of like-minded people having similar travel interests. Group sizes can vary from a few, generally around 15, to as many as 45, or even more.


Hosted tours permit you to travel at your own pace from place to place with the benefit of a tour host in each place visited. This gives you, the traveler, a local contact, but allows a good bit of anonymity. Sightseeing, however, will be with a group of fellow travelers.


Independent touring means just that - you are on your own.  Regardless, Travel Harmony will be able to assist you with planning, reservations and touring information for whatever method of travel you choose.



What's the Electrical Needs Where You're Going?
