With a family account you can even choose to share certain information with family members, which is super useful. It's both convenient and secure. 🙂

    • I’m currently planning a June trip to Scandinavia with my 83yo Mom. Very happy to read all these tips, some of which I had not considered before. I will share them with her. Thank you, @Victoria, for the beanbag neck pillow tip especially!

      My tip for this thread is to check out consolidators for business class seats priced well below what the airlines quote. I have been pleasantly surprised to find some great deals this way and will thoroughly enjoy the added comfort and service for some long-haul flights I have coming up.

    • I got this travel hack from a journalist and it saved me many a sleepless night in hotels when I was traveling 60% of the year.

      Most hotel room windows have curtains that should pull together tightly. Unfortunately, when you turn off the lights, there often is a small gap remaining between the curtains, which lets light in. If you need total darkness to fall asleep, you’re basically SOL.

      I always packed a handful of these, courtesy of the office supply closet. Fasten the ends of the curtains with the binder clips and the room should become noticeably darker.
