The day before my outbound travel to Kathmandu, Jet Airways had just announced the possible shutdown of the airline if employees did not start taking concessions.

AMEX Centurion Lounge Miami Review

AMEX Centurion Lounge Miami Review

The American Express Centurion Lounge in Miami is located near Gate D12. Miami Airport is very spread out and it is easy to underestimate distances. We walked through the D Gate security and it was still a solid 20-minute walk; if in doubt, take the Skytrain. The American Express Centurion Lounges are very good at […]

Does a credit card Collision Damage Waiver insurance apply for peer to peer car-sharing like Getaround and Turo

Does a credit card Collision Damage Waiver insurance apply for peer to peer car-sharing like Getaround and Turo
