Richard asks…

All inclusive tour package to Europe?

As their retirement present, I want to send my parents on an all inclusive guided tour for at least a week in Europe (especially France, Italy, and England). This would be their first trip oversea, so yes, they would need a guide, or else they would get very lost and confuse (just trust me on this one). I am looking for a guided tour package deal where they can travel with like a group or something with a guide (preferably aiming toward an older crowd), which include airfare or other transportation there, hotels (preferably something decent, at least 3 stars), tickets to any attractions they’ll be visiting, breakfast, lunch, and dinner (since the guide could take them to the good places and introduce them to the local cuisines), so when I’m talking all inclusive, the only money I want them to spend out of pocket on this trip would be on souvenirs and snacks and stuff. I’ve been on the similar tour package (except by cruise ship) to the Caribbean before, but not sure if there anything similar to Europe I could send my parents to and not have to worry that they’ll get lost and stranded somewhere…

Yaz answers:

Ooh…be careful here. I’ve been on two tour groups to Europe, and one of those times I went with my 50 year old mother and 76 year old gma. It was WAY too rushed and fast and hectic for them. The tour was 14 days, rick steves. We stayed an additional few days without the group, but in the group it was very fast-paced. How old are they? Can they stand A LOT of walking? Can they stand staying in france for 2 days then rushing off to italy? Are they more the sit down and relax and go at a slow pace kinda people, or what? Even for me, an 18 y/o, the pace was rather rushed. You just can’t do paris in 2 days. Florence in half a day.

If you do get them the package, try for at least 2 weeks. 10 days is too little, and idk if they even offer a 7-day week.

Mary asks…

I work in Libya and would like to see switzerland Austria and Italy,with family in a budget?

We are 3 adults, and can travel eighter by bus/train or air for this cultural trip to see the main attractions.I will arrange visa and buy air tkt to eighter Switzerland or rome to start the trip. Budget is US $ 1700-1800 per person, all inclusive( accomodation, breakfast and dinner, sightseeing with entrance fees, localtransport , guide services)

Yaz answers:

That is not a lot of money. I hope you have not included the cost of flights from Lybia to Europe in this budget or it will be very tight.

AFAIK flights from Lybia to Europe are expensive, consider going to Tunisia or Egypt and catching a charter flight. There is a ferry from Tunis to Sicily, if you want to travel around Italy this might be a cheap way to get to Italy.

You need to plan on having at least 50 EUR per day and person, that is just enough money that you do not have to sleep on the sidewalk or beg for food. It will pay for beds in a hostel dorm and food from the supermarket, but not much more. For some comfort I would recommend taking 65+ EUR per day.

Your 1700-1800 USD work out to about 1300 EUR. With a budget of 65 EUR per day that will allow you to travel for 20 days. Note that Switzerland is expensive, your money will go further in Italy or Austria, take that into account.

20 days is a good timeframe for travelling from Sicily to the north of Italy. All three countries (Italy, Switzerland and Austria) might be a bit much in such short time. I would recommend travelling only to Italy and Austria. Both Austria and Italy have relatively cheap train tickets, no need to buy a Eurail pass if you use an international ticket from Brennero to Palermo for Italy and the Einfach-Raus-Ticket in Austria. Fly into Vienna with Turkish Airlines and then take the train to Sicily and then the ferry to Tunis.

Get yourself a good guidebook, I know that Lonely Planet, Rough Guide, Let’s Go or Rick Steves are good for independent travel.

Ken asks…

Cost for 2 people-Travel Rome, Florence, Venice and then Paris, France.?

My husband and I are planning a trip to 3 cities in Italy– Rome, Florence, Venice and then Paris, France. We are considering a package from Costco Travels that is coming close to 7500 all inclusive for a 12 day trip-flights included. I recently came across a brochure from TrafalgarTours and they seem to have a variety of packages and offer 10% discount for costco members.
Please give me your opinions based on ur own experiences. And let me know how much should I keep aside for expenditure while in Eaurope – on meals, sight seeing etc.

Yaz answers:

Trafalgar Tours is one of the major players for organized tours here. If you see something you like, you can check the reviews on tripadvisor. However, you could arrange the whole thing on your own for less if you were inclined to. I always prefer to travel independently, but it is more work to book everything that way. When I go from Venice to Paris, I take the night train for 45 euro – a discounted fare that you have to book in advance since it sells out quickly. The normal fare is 127 euro for a berth in a 4 bed compartment.

Generally, I count on spending 25 to 50 euro when I go out for a meal here in Italy, but you can eat well for less than that. A pizza runs from 8 to 13 euro, for example.

Train travel between the cities can be worked out here: http://www.trenitalia.com/cms/v/index.jsp?vgnextoid=ad1ce14114bc9110VgnVCM10000080a3e90aRCRD

I use this site for hotels here in Italy: http://www.venere.com/

Sandra asks…

I am going on my first cruise shortly?

Iam going on a thompson cruise soon calling at 3 ports in italy, The cost of the arranged trips to Rome, the Vatican etc, seem quite expensive. Is there a cheaper way to do the trips or are you tied to Thompsons. also are the drinks on board expensive? is it worth paying for the all inclusive drinks package.? many thanks Peter

Yaz answers:

Our first cruise was with Thomson and included Civitiveccia, which is the nearest port to Rome. Unfortunately Rome is about 2 hours drive away. You are under no obligation whatsoever to to do the excursion with Thomson. You can come to an arrangement with a port taxi driver, or see if there are any other excursions companies working from the port. You could though, be left disappointed, or waste a lot of sightseeing time trying to arrange this. I have always found the Thomson excursions better value and far superior to other cruiselines such as P&O. Our trip to Rome was amazing and the agent took us to loads of touristy places that we would have been hard put to find under our own steam,

The drink prices on board are comparable with most pubs. As for the drinks package – it depends on how much you drink. We sat down one year and worked it out. We don’t drink too much, and it worked out just less to buy them separately. We found that those on drinks packages had smaller glasses, and then the wine waiters weren’t too quick at refilling them.

Lizzie asks…

Cheapest places for destination weddings?

Where are the cheapest all inclusive places to go, not including mexico because I do not want to go there. I would really prefer the carribean, africa, or europe. My top choices are Morocco, Jamaica, Italy, Spain, and Ireland. Of those which would be the cheapest place go and how could I lower the costs. My budget is 10,000 dollars for me, my bf, my parents and my brother. His family will be paying for their portion of the trip

Yaz answers:

Montego Bay, or Ocho Rios Jamaica is nice, or Hawaii. Like another poster said, make sure you have passports.

Your Questions About Trips To Italy Packages

Richard asks…

How much does it cost a vacation/honeymoon package trip to Italy?For 10/11.Please provide name & links.?

Thanks Mary for your answer but a lot of times the travel agents they rip you off AND I don’t want that.Suggestions please keep them coming.

Yaz answers:

I suggest that you meet with a travel agent in your area! A fact-to-face relationship is much more likely to get you the trip that will please you — and your budget — the most. It costs nothing to work with a travel agent. (Mine does a wonderful job for me, answering all my questions, answering questions I don’t think to ask, and always finds me some wonderful deals that at least match anything on the internet and are often a bit less.)

By the way, Italy can be VERY expensive depending upon where you choose to go. Notwithstanding the expense, I recommend that you consider Venice!

Sandra asks…

Steven asks…

Need tto book a trip package from los angeles to hawaii,help?!?

Hi,i m planning a trip from 18 sept to 28 sept for me and my girlfriend.
We are from italy but i have some parents in La,so we was interested on a trip from italy to La and than from La to hawaii,but the problem is that the travel agencies do not have browser to find cheap packages from La to hawai.
i found a site http://www.valuetravelhawaii.com/ but i really do not have experience to book from this,price are ok but does anybody have more site or info or package that could suggest me?
My budget is not too much but 800-900$ each is ok,also cause we have to book a flight from italy to La and that cost me a lot too.
Any help is really glad

Yaz answers:

Just to let you know it is cheaper to fly out on a thursday and come in on the weekdays. If you are looking for a package for them from LAX TO HNL with that budget um……… I looked on orbitz.com and i found this package that is a nice hotel with the beach not to fard down the street http://www.orbitz.com/App/shared/pagedef/results/hotelDetailsStandalone.jsp?z=15e3&r=1rp&z=15e5&r=1rr&lastPage=interstitial

Susan asks…

I need suggestions on finding a good package deal trip to Barcelona? Also what’s the best time of year to go?

I looking to book a trip to Barcelona (or Italy actually) sometime next year for me and my boyfriend. I’ve never been there before and when he went last he backpacked (not my style). So I’m looking for any help/suggestions I can get on good flight deals, hotels, etc. And also what time of year is best to go. He went in the summer before.

We’re kinda set on Barcelona but I would also take any suggestions anyone has on trips to Italy.

Thanks!

Yaz answers:

Hola! I’m from barcelona, and obviously I recommend you come whenever you want. Always there are tourists in Barcelona at any time of year because the weather is usually very good, but especially between late July and early September, the hotels, hostels, campsites … Fill with people. So if you want movement, life, great food, millions of trips and the best weather of the year I recommend you come in those months.
COUNCIL IMPORTANT: As we say here “a l’Abril aigües mil” in the month of April used to rain a little, and in the last 2 weeks of August and early September at 2 also. Barcelona is quite different if you see a sunny day to overcast.
Sorry 4 my English = google translator

Robert asks…

Recommendations for Rome Italy travel packages for a week in November?

We are spending a week in Florence with my family, but my husband and I want to see Rome for an extra week after the family vacation ends. But we don’t know how to plan the trip, does anyone know any good places that offer packages? We are interested in seeing ancient historical sites.

Yaz answers:

It’s only a 1 hr 35 min trip from Florence to Rome on a fast train. You can find schedules and prices here: http://www.trenitalia.com/cms/v/index.jsp?vgnextoid=ad1ce14114bc9110VgnVCM10000080a3e90aRCRD You don’t need to buy tickets in advance of the trip.

I use the Venere.com site for hotels here in Italy: http://www.venere.com/italy/rome/ . One place that I particularly like is the Cesàri Hotel http://www.venere.com/hotels/rome/hotel-cesari/ which is close to the Pantheon. It’s within walking distance of most of the attractions. There are lots of other options.. The Colosseo, Trevi, Navona, or Pantheon areas are all good choices for sightseeing.

You might also consider a convent/monastery stay: http://www.monasterystays.com/

It’s very easy to get around in Rome on your own, but if you’re interested in escorted tours: http://www.viator.com/Rome/d511-ttd?pref=02&aid=g3392

Michael asks…

How much money would you bring on a month’s all inclusive holiday to Italy?

It’s with a youth camp. Meals, admission fees, transport and accommodation are paid for.

I will need money for extra drinks, extra shopping, possibly clubbing, etc. How much would you bring if it were you?

(I’ll actually be putting it all on a credit card, but I want to estimate how much to save!)

Yaz answers:

Young people in Italy gain about 1000 euro per month at work…. Something like this ja?

Ruth asks…

all-inclusive holiday ideas?

I am after a allinclusive holiday for 10 days in europe for 2 people which has beach for relaxing and places to visit, bike rental would be good. Options of places would be spain Portugal italy denmark

Yaz answers:

Thomas asks…

how much money is ideal to take to venice?

im going on holiday end of august for a week to venice italy. im going with my grandma and boyfriend. the hotel is all inclusive with breakfast. would 200 euro be enough?

Yaz answers:

I was recently in Venice, which I found to be absolutely wonderful — and godawful expensive! For example, a can of Diet Coke in St. Mark’s Square was 12 Euros! Food is terribly expensive in all of the tourist areas, so a sandwich and a soda pop for lunch can easily run $25 Euros and more per person. Water is not provided, and costs about the same as a can of pop. Things are a bit less expensive the further you get from St. Mark’s, but not a whole lot less. If I were planning to return to Venice for a week any time soon, I would be taking at least 1000 Euros (about $1350 US), plus a major credit card, and with that would NOT plan on a “real restaurant” for any meal. Breakfast included with the hotel will be nice, of course, but not a lot of help with expenses. Shops and restaurants do NOT accept US dollars, by the way — only Euros or a major credit card.

One thing you should know — it costs money to get into a public restroom in Venice, so be sure you use the bathroom before you leave your hotel, and have Euro coins with you! The local banks do NOT cooperate in changing money, either from one currency to another or even to give you change for Euros. However, if you are by chance stopping for even just a soda pop at any of the cafes, they are required to allow you to use the restroom — if you have ordered food or drink, but not otherwise.

David asks…

where would you suggest a holiday at 16?

Me and my friends are planning on going away for the end of our GCSE’s next summer when most of us are 16, but the thing is we have no idea where to go and where would be good. We aren’t going with parents and would like to go somewhere in europe like greece or italy. We want somewhere where we can drink and go clubbing but isnt too expensive, maybe like an all inclusive deal?
any suggestions would be good as we want to plan this in advance

thanks xx

Carol asks…

How cheap is a vacation to Italy? Has anyone been there?

Trying to decide on a vacation destination that is both safe (we have a preschooler) and cheapish.

Yaz answers:

First off – where are you, you didn’t say.

If you are from the UK it may be cheap(er) compared to the UK. If you are from the US, most place in the world would tend to be expensive since the dollar is soo weak. Almost any place in Europe will be about 40% more expensive than the US.

Nancy asks…

Yaz answers:

At the moment the best deal for flyh from usa to italy is with British airline.
In Rome you can rent an apartment like mine:

Linda asks…

Where can I get good cheap plane tickets? Preferably to France or Italy?

I am planning a summer vacation to France or Italy, but do not know where I can get some cheap plane tickets-preferably under $1000. Please answer soon. My vacation is planned, all I need are the tickets!

Yaz answers:

Depending on where you’re starting from, you can try sites like http://www.kayak.com/ , http://www.skyscanner.it/ or http://www.expedia.com/default.asp . Prices will also depend on exactly when you want to go. About the only place you’re likely to find flights for under $1000 might be to London right now and that will barely be under $1000.

Lizzie asks…

Could someone recommend some cheap, but nice accommodations for a vacation in Pisa, Italy?

I will be traveling in the month of October 2009 (staying for a week) and I just wanted some place that was decent and safe and would be a great central spot for reaching the airport and using the trains to get to other cities like Rome and Florence for day trips.

Yaz answers:

What do you consider cheap? The Hotel Royal Victoria http://www.venere.com/hotels/pisa/hotel-royal-victoria/ is pretty reasonable in October. It’s adjacent to the river on the route between the train station and the leaning tower (about a 10 minute walk to either).

Robert asks…

I have just been awarded a six day coach holiday to italy with European Vacations. All i have to pay is £20?

That is for admin and processing costs. Is this a con or does anyone know of this company. I know that you can get cheap holidays to view timeshares etc and i was wondering if this is the same sort of thing?

Yaz answers:

It does sound too good to be true!
I think you just need to call a customer service rep. From the company and ask them for the trip itinerary and if there are “other” hidden costs that you might have to pay like hotel, food and taxes.

George asks…

Does anyone know a vacation website where I can find an all inclusive trip to Italy?

Rome specifically, but some sort of tour would be okay as well. I am not planning right away, but would love to look through some all inclusive vacations. I have already looked on some of the major travel sites (travelocity, orbitz, yahoo travel) and didn’t find any vacation packages. Please and thank you!

Yaz answers:

I booked mine through roadtoitaly.com
Check them out, perhaps you’ll find what you’re looking for there. They have custom options. I booked a tour for 2 weeks around northern part of Italy and it included land and air fare – portorage, taxes, airport transfers, etc. Made my trip hassle free and easy. They have great tours such as Cosmos, Globus, and Tafalgar. If you scroll down, you’ll find more European tours. You can have something very intense or something light in terms of constantly walking and looking. But they are tours. If you want a vacation – as in rest time – this is probably not it. Hope this helps. Best of luck.

Looking for a family vacation to Italy. (Naples, Rome, Venice.) Any recommendations for all inclusive resorts? Or any advice on planning a trip there?

John asks…

Does Italy have any all-inclusive resorts?

Looking to vacation one on of Italy‘s beaches with my 2-year old daughter while my husband attends Lamborghini training in April. I have never traveled to Europe and am not sure what to expect. However, I have been to Mexico and LOVE allinclusive resorts. Room, food and drinks included. Does Italy have any of these allinclusive types of resorts?

Yaz answers:

Yes many google them in Calabria, Sicily, Puglia, Sardinia, Campania, you can find as much as you want

Lizzie asks…

Can you recommend any all inclusive European vacations? ?

My husband and I are interested in traveling to Europe over the next few years. We would like to go for a week at a time, so it would be several trips over the next decade or so.

We would like to go on a guided tour/vacation, where the accommodations, tours, transportation, and possible interpreters are all included in the price. Basically, we want to take the guess work out of traveling to foreign lands where we don’t speak the language. (ie Italy, France, Spain, Greece, etc)

What groups/companies do you recommend??

The only ones I know of are “Vacations by Disney.” They seem overpriced (and I am sure they are, knowing that corporation!). Can you recommend another accredited company that has better prices, and are trustworthy?

Please, DO NOT reply with your name and tell me to call you directly. If you have an accredited company with a website, I will check your site out only. If you reply with a “spam answer” I’ll merely give you a low rating.

Yaz answers:

I agree with Redhead, the only way to travel around Europe is on your own. Reason for this is that Europe is expensive, and all that service that you ask for is going to add a hefty premium to the tour price. (Think 40 % and more.) A tour for 2 people going for 7 days that might cost you 3500 USD if you do it on your own will cost you at least 5000 USD if you do it with a tour company.

I’m a frequent traveller and I have been to plenty of exotic places and doing a 1-week-trip from the US to Europe on your own is a piece of cake.

There is plenty of information available online, even very small hotels have English-language websites and online-booking options.

Plus you are not going to see much in a week. A week is just enough time to see Paris or London. So you a book a flight to say, Paris, reserve a hotel online (10 % down payment via credit card) and then get a public transport pass to the Paris Metro system that is valid for a week. How hard is that? Not difficult at all, I can assure you.

Going for a week to Paris or London is no more of a problem than organising a trip to LA, SF or New York for the average US-American.

All you need is a decent guidebook to help you plan it all and to make head or tail out of the sights.

Guidebook series that I know to be good are Rick Steves’, Lonely Planet, Rough Guide, Let’s Go. Go to your local book store and check them out.

Aside from being a guidebook writer, Rick Steves’ also has his own travel agency organising tours in Europe. These tours are known as being a bit on the budget side, following the company’s philosophy that people who just want to see Paris do not necessarily want to shell out for 4-star luxury hotel accomodation, but are just as happy in small 2-star hotels and pensions.

The website is http://www.ricksteves.com . The site is also a goldmine of information for people who want to travel independently, so take a very good look at every page.

As for cost of travelling independently, the minimum budget should be 50 EUR per day and person plus flight tickets to Europe. This is a very frugal budget, if you are used to your small comforts you should bring about 100 EUR per day and person. The key to travelling cheap are two things: Sleeping cheap, maybe on a camping site, in a hostel, a holiday appartment or in a small family pension and preparing your own food. Instead of eating out you buy supplies in the supermarket and cook or make sandwiches. Eating out for dinner or lunch will set you back around 20 EUR per person, if you cook or make sandwiches you easily can get by on 5 EUR for a meal – and that serves two people.

Another company that I know of are Viking River Cruises. They organise River Cruises in Europe and Asia. IMO they are a bit pricey for what they offer, but from your description they might suit you best.

Http://www.vikingrivers.com/

There are also a couple of companies aiming for the young crowd (college student age), Busabout, EF and Contiki are among them. Can’t hurt you to look at them too, I guess.

Your Questions About Adventure Holidays For Singles

Ruth asks…

where can i find good singles holidays for young people?

I am late 20s and single and looking for a holiday with other young people. Every singles holidays seems to be an activity or adventure holiday and I really want somewhere hot, with some nightlife but most importantly to relax.

Yaz answers:

You might consider a “Singles” cruise? I’m sure there are some that go to the Caribbean or somewhere just as warm. I’ve been on a Caribbean cruise and it was great. During the day you can relax in the sun on the ship, and if you’ve docked somewhere (we stopped at Key West, and Nassau Bahamas) you can go ashore and have some fun on land. Then at night the ships always have something to do (casinos, bars, pretty much everything).

Robert asks…

Why should I go on a much needed holiday as a single woman?

Where should I go on a much needed break as a single woman?
I am a 26 year old woman and I’m looking to go away this summer for two / three weeks on a much needed break.

I am newly single and don’t want to wait for my friends to make travel plans so have decided to go away on my own. My budget is £750-£1025 and would need to cover everything.

I want to be surrounded by nature but also meet some other travellers along the way. I am looking for an adventure but in a bit of a shoestring. I have travelled on my own throughout north America and south east Asia in my early twenties so I’m looking for somewhere new to go. I’ve also been to Cuba, Mexico, Greece and turkey. Any suggestions would be much appreciated. I want to use my saved up money wisely and be safe when I travel as a single woman.

Thanks!

Yaz answers:

Check out Best Single Travel. They also have singles vacations packages for 18-35 year olds.

Ken asks…

has anyone been on a horse riding holiday?

Hello and I wondered if anyone could help me.

I was going on holiday with some friends but they can not go anymore due to money. However I still want to get away for 3 or so weeks.
I am in late twenties, single and want to go on a horse riding adventure holiday abroad (outside uk). I will be by myself as none of my close friends share my love for riding, so would want to meet people and have lots of fun. I wondered if there were any Riding holidays tailored to younger people in their 20’s and 30’s? I have had a look online without much success. I do ride although I would say I was a novice as I only do it once a week and do not have my own horse, but I am very passionate about horse riding and absoloutly love it.

Has anybody been on or know of a riding holiday that might be suitable?

Many Thanks

Amy

Sandra asks…

Where should I go on holiday? Choice between Egypt, Morocco, Jordan or Oman?

I’ve got 12 days off work in February and have some spare cash to go on holiday somewhere a bit more exotic than usual. I’m single so I thought I’d try one of these group adventure holidays where you can do trekking, camel safaris, sleeping out in the desert in tents etc. I’ve been having a look online and come up with 4 possible destinations that I fancy- Egypt, Morocco, Jordan and Oman. I don’t know anything about any of these places (especially Oman) and don’t know anyone who’s been before. Does anyone have any recommendations, hints, tips, advice? Half of the adventure is going someone totally new and experiencing it for myself, but I could just do with a prod in the right direction! Thanks.

Yaz answers:

Been to all 4.

Egypt is full of history. Pyramids are a must (but be prepared to feel ashamed of the conditions of this world site!) and a trip on one of the river cruise ships along the Nile to the other historic sites. A MUST is a visit to Abu Simbal (go by plane – not coach! Even though more expensive), especially the secret in the side door……

Morocco – not impressed with.

Oman – very interesting/mountainous – especially the roundabouts!!!!!!!

Jordan – Petra is absolutely incredible! As is a visit into Wadi Rum (total wilderness)!

My order of preference (assuming you haven’t already been there) has to be Egypt. Then Jordan, Oman, Morocco.

Mandy asks…

Recommendations on the best european Holiday for myself and my 6yo son ?? please?

ok im am looking to give my 6yo son a holiday of lifetime as this will be our first one ever.
i am a single mum and it will be just the 2 of us going.
im looking for all suggestions and experiences for a Holiday that will keep my little lad active and happy.
Anything from package to adventure holiday as he is happy as long as he has constantly got something to do.
please bare in mind travel time and how long a very busy 6yo lad could cope (or how much i could cope keeping him sat still) !! lol

:- Ideally somewhere hot !!
:- if you could add a rough idea of what your Holiday cost overall, and what you got for that.
:- the “Must See and Must Miss” things you experienced

please feel free to write even the smallest of detail as they can be very helpful also

Thanks all

Yaz answers:

Come to sunny Cyprus!!

Protaras is a great famil-friendly resort, with most of the hotels situated along the shoreline of some great sandy beaches; Fig Tree Bay and Flamigo Bay etc, and all are within easy walking distance of a good selection of shops, bars and restaurants. There is also a good selection of play/activity areas to keep your son entertained!

From here, you are just a short bus ride to Agia Napa, and please don’t be put off….’Napa isn’t all lager louts and booze cruises!! It has a very pretty harbour,and some great beaches, and also has a large funfair with lots of rides and activities for young children. The buses are quite regular,and pretty cheap too…..it is only about a ten minute ride between the resorts.

It about a 4 hour flight from the U.K, so not too bad, but I would say to avoid coming in August…it can be very hot ( weve had temperatures of 45C) and very, very busy, as this is when most Cypriots take their annual leave!

The Cypriots just love kids, and you will find you will be made most welcome everywhere, and its a very safe and friendly area too! Enjoy!!

Check out www.olympicholidays.com to give you some idea of hotels etc, but check with your travel agent for any deals and offers.

George asks…

My company required that we submit ALL our vacation for 2012 at the end of 2011…. legal?

I’m a single mom of a 1 year old and have 3 weeks vacation in 2012. I never take a “vacation…” I take random days off when I need to in case the sitter can’t watch her, she gets sick… etc. All the employees are complaining that they are asking to do this because most of us ARE parents in the same situation.

Is it legal for them to require this? It’s already past their “cut off date” and they are badgering us for dates. Who would I call to find out if this is legal? Never in all my years of working have I heard of such a thing!!! They also asked that we take HALF our vacation before July!

Yaz answers:

I am going to explain why it is legal, there is no law in any state that says you get a vacation so therefore there are no laws that says how an employer can administer them, it does not matter if they are earned or accrued the employer is free to say how and even when you can use vacation.

Richard asks…

Vacation spot for july 2012 for a group of 4-6 guys (ages 20-21)?

Location of a country/city that is not in the U.S, we have a budget of $3500-$4000 per person…would prefer a specific answer of a hotel or a resort stayed at by such group as ourselves. Looking to party and meet single ladies

Yaz answers:

I think that budget is more than enough to have an exotic vacation at the Bali Island in Indonesia where you guys can learn and enjoy surfing and scuba diving. Here’s a website to give you great ideas for your travel http://www.balivillaholidays.com/. Have a nice trip. :)

Jenny asks…

Yaz answers:

Yes, if you leave Canada during your authorized stay, you must get a new visitor visa to re-enter Canada.Single entry visa allows you to enter Canada once.Hope this helps.

Michael asks…

Carnival Liberty or Carnival Glory?

Thinking about taking a Carnival cruise vacation in January 2012. We are thinking about either the Carnival Liberty or the Carnival Glory. The Liberty goes to Isla Roatan, Cozumel, Grand Cayman, and Belize (Western Caribbean), and the Glory goes to St. Thomas, San Juan, Nassau, and Grand Turk. Which itinerary do you think is better? Which ship is better?Which cruise should we go on? I’m a single mom with a 13 year old daughter if that helps.

Yaz answers:

If you or your daughter likes culture, inland jungle adventures, and Mayan ruins, then the liberty is the cruise for you. If you prefer water, beach and sun in endless amounts then the Glory cruise is for you.

Yaz answers:

Costa Rica………….great place to relax, many beaches and it’s cheap

Robert asks…

Does anyone know of a good vacation for three single men traveling at the end of september early october?

Yaz answers:

I don’t know if you guys are looking to party or not, but if you are try Myrtle Beach, Miami, or some other Florida beach. Hawaii, maybe, too. Las Vegas is always a super awesome vacation for anybody over 21 lol. For a more serious vacation you should try LA, Washington DC, the Grand Canyon and Petrified Forest, Yosemite…it’s too cold at this time of year to go to my two favorite destinations: Glacier Nat’l Park and Yellowstone, but of course you can keep those in mind for later. :)

Ken asks…

Is there a good cruise to go on for single men for vacation?

Yaz answers:

The first link is preferred the second link is thier world locations. Be advised some people might be offended by the content of these sites. But this is a very high class and legitimate vacation company.

Michael asks…

What’s a better city for a single man to vacation in: Miami, FL or Myrtle Beach, SC?

Please provide pro and con/ good and bad for each. Thank you.

Yaz answers:

I really like Myrtle Beach … Been there 3 years in a row and it’s just an amazing state. I really enjoyed it and plus, there was so much stuff to do there and the people are very friendly. Friendliest place I’ve been so far.

Donald asks…

What is the best destination for single men holiday in the Dominican Republic?

We are 2 30+ guys from NY that would like to take 3-4 days vacation in the Dominican Republic. We are looking for good night life and some sport activities.

Thanks for any advice.

Yaz answers:

Sosua and/or Cabarete. Forget the all-inclusive places, just go to Sosua or Cabarete and look for an acceptible hotel – there are dozens. There is never a problem getting a room unless it happens to be Easter. These towns are close to the Puerto Plata Airport.

Boca Chica is also suitible and close to the SDQ airport. If you had a few more days I would suggest Las Terenas, but it isn’t worth the drive if you are only there for such a short time.

I am trying to plan an all inclusive trip to Costa Rica on the cheap any ideas?

I would like to stay at a resort on the beach either side is fine.

Yaz answers:

You should look at the best travel agency here www.destinostv.com

Robert asks…

Would it be cheaper to buy a Costa Rica vacation package from Hotels.com or separately?

I’m planning a short trip to Costa Rica for about 5-6 days. Would it be cheaper to buy a vacation package deal from hotels.com or buy airfare separately online and then book hotels locally when I get there? Where would be a good and cheap place to stay in San Jose and Quepos? What are the availability around this time of year? What is the best traveling method from San Jose to Quepos?

Yaz answers:

Go to
www.ilovecostarica.com for info…. Or

www.truecostarica.com loads of info available.

I saw book a package deal, especially cheaper if you want to actually tour the countryside….there are some wonderful deals for just under $1,000 for 10 days including tours throughout the country, meals and hotels throughout the country. You get to see the sites, taste the foods and stay at more than one hotel/villa! I have friends in San Jose and hope to go down for a visit next spring – stay with them some, but plan to take a package tour also…Have fun!

Donna asks…

cheap places around tamarindo and jaco costa rica?

taking a trip to costa rica next year around may for two weeks and we’re going to hit tamarindo and jaco. know of any cheap places to stay

Yaz answers:

If you go to Playa Grande( 5-10 mins from Tamarindo) theres a hotel called the Las Tortugas, right on the beach behind a turtle nesting marine park. They have some surfer rancheros that are like $15 a day. I havn’t stayed in them, but from photos, they don’t look half bad. Did I mention that its right on the beach? And theres an awesome surf break there. Also, try and stay in Playa Hermosa instead of Jaco, its a little less grimy and only a few minutes away from Jaco. I havn’t stayed in any cheap hotels in Hermosa, but they are there. Hope this helps and have a great time!

Betty asks…

Is it better to have a travel agent arrange my costa rica trip?will they find cheaper deals?their commission?

Is it cheaper for me to do this myself?
What are the pros and cons of a travel agent?

Yaz answers:

They probably will find better deals as they have greater buying power, and they will know the locations. They should also be insured should they go bust.
Check online and read lots of reviews on various travel agents.
I would use a travel agent with a country I am not familiar with, and do it myself if I know the country fairly well.

Ken asks…

Where can i get cheap ticket for a round trip to Cost Rica?

My mom, sister and me want to take a trip to Costa Rica. ( 3 adults ). My mom wants to spend atleast 350 on tickets, no more then that. We are leaving from JKF, NY. We plan on leaving February 18 and returning the 27, 2011. Can any one find me ticket deals for me or show me where i can find some?

Yaz answers:

Since it is just a little over a month before you will be leaving, the prices are going to be high. From JFK and nearby airports, the cheapest right now for those dates is $704 incl. Tax. The price is likely to go up as it gets closer to the travel date. $350 is next to impossible to find, but you could try bidding on a site like http://www.priceline.com. If you return on the 25th, the price will only be $574. Go to a website like http://www.orbitz.com , type in JFK to SJO and try different days.

Donald asks…

How do i get a refund for train tickets online?

I have made the mistake of purchasing rail tickets for travel to London Paddington tomorrow morning at 11:55 ….

I will be unable to travel but as i have purchased advance singles to Paddington and for my journey back, i am being told that i cannot cancel the tickets and claim a refund….

Meaning i am over £50 loss, surely there is someway of claiming a refund or credit note from thetrainline.com

Any help is greatly appreciated, thank you.

Yaz answers:

If the conditions of Advance tickets mean that there is no refund, then, I’m afraid there is little you can do.

When purchasing the tickets you would have had two options:-

1) Purchase the cheapest possible ticket with penalties for changing your mind and no refunds

2) Purchase a more expensive ticket with flexibility and most of your money back if you cancel.

Unfortunately for you, you chose option 1. Nobody made you choose this option. It was a gamble and this time you lost.

I am in my 50‘s, don’t have a college degree, have experience in housekeeping, caregiver(not certified), love to cook(not a chef)and have traveled to over 30 states including Anchorage, Alaska, and parts of Canada. I am looking to move from Colorado Springs(only has fast food jobs)to a medium to small community where I can work on a temp basis until I find something permanent.

Robert asks…

I was offered a once in a lifetime opportunity but am considering turning it down because I’m afraid to travel

I was offered a once in a lifetime opportunity but am considering turning it down because I’m afraid to travel
I’ve never gone anywhere outside my hometown. This job would require me to go all over the US, Canada, Europe, etc. I seriously live in a bubble, and I’m afraid to leave my parents. I’m young, right out of college but I’ve interned at this place for quite a few years and they offered me a full time position. I’d be travelling 50% of the time. I’m afraid of planes. But I feel that I’m single and have no attachments. I needt o learn to be on my own.

Accept the offer or turn it down? I’m so torn. The money is excellent for me being right out of school, I just am so hesitant because of the travel.

Yaz answers:

Girl. You are young. You will only be able to do this once.
You will cry and tear your hair out, but end up a stronger happier person for it. You say you live in a bubble. Break out!
2 years ago, I had never been more than 40km away from my mum. I was married (still am), 22, and had our own place, but still spoke to my mum every day and would automatically turn to her at the slightest hiccup.
One day, my husband and i were sitting in KFC talking rubbish. We kind of sort of maybe said ‘Hey, we’ve always talked about going to Europe… We should do it one day’
The next day I started applying online for jobs in the UK, so we could base ourselves and travel. I wasn’t really expecting anything to come of it, but by the end of the week I had received a call and been hired as a teacher in Birmingham.
We had 4 months to save. We sold everything we owned and THEN thought ‘oh no… What have we done??’
We arrived 4 mths later – in the ghetto. Violence, crime, tougher kids than I ever imagined existed. I cried every day for a month. I missed my mum. I missed Australia. I didn;t think I would cope and desperately wanted to go home.
At the end of the 1st month things didn;t seem nearly so bad… Not great, but I was crying once a week instead of every day. Then not at all.
2 years later and it was the best decision I have ever made.
The 1st 2 month were hard, then I adapted and it was fine.
The same will happen to you. If you can sacrifice 2 months (maybe less if you’re better than me!!), you will have something that will be a personal, professional and just general boon for you.
Everything will still be there when you go back, You’ll have missed a few birthdays perhaps… Maybe some Christmases… A few subtle changes…but everyone and everything will be pretty much exactly as you left them. I promise.
I am 24 and I now solve my own problems (except the REALLY big ones.. And mum is only 10 numbers away!!)
DO IT!!!
DO IT!!!
DO IT!!!
Hard? Yes.
BUT it will be so worth it and you will KICK yourself if you don;t do it!!!
Swallow your butterflies and get excited about all the cool syuff you will be seeing!!
