– Orbitz has some amazingly cheap car rental in Costa Rica with most major car rental companies (Hertz, Budget and more) on offer right now
Now many rental locations often make most of their money from pushing insurance and potentially false damage claims on you – but it’s that cheap?
If you are headed down there it might be a good idea to make use of some of the generous miles bonuses for car rentals that we have seen recently.
– another cautionary tale using Air China for a Star Alliance award ticket
Air China refuses to re-book passengers on award tickets if they miss their connection because of late Air China flights. This happened to me before and it is frustrating (and against all IATA and Star Alliance rules) and leaves you stuck in a foreign airport with no help offered.
I have not flown Air China in a long time and would avoid including them in ANY award ticket. It should be fine to fly them on a discounted cash ticket where they are the only carrier (so there are no excuses).
– easyjet is about to start German domestic flights from Berlin to Stuttgart, Dusseldorf and Munich
That seems a small bounty from the big network airberlin used to run. It seems rather certain that airberlin will not survive and shut down operations later this year. Don’t book!
