National Car Rental earns top spot in J.D. Power study.
In the J.D. Power 2013 North American Rental Car Satisfaction StudySM, National Car Rental was the highest-ranked car rental brand for the first time since 2001. Participants in the study of leisure and business travelers who rented vehicles at North American airports ranked National Car Rental highest in customer satisfaction. Second place was Enterprise Rent-A-Car, and Alamo Rent A Car brands came in third.
Understanding the TSA’s new smartphone rules.
If you’re planning on taking an international flight bound for the U.S., make sure your smartphone is charged and on when you’re going through the security check. The reason: the TSA is cracking down on “dead” electronic devices to prevent terrorists from turning a hollowed-out piece of equipment into a bomb. So, be prepared to power-up your device at security or risk surrendering it.

Next trip, let low airfares be your guide.
Next time you’re planning a flight, let the airfare deals determine when you go, rather than picking a destination and date first. This way, you’ll leverage the availability of low airfares. Some helpful websites include Kayak.com’s Explore tool, AirGorilla.com, and Hipmunk.com.
Write down important cell phone numbers.
What would happen if your cell phone was lost or stolen? Do you know the numbers of close family, friends, and coworkers? Prepare for the possibility by writing down a list of emergency numbers. If traveling, consider including your hotel concierge’s number and anyone you know personally in the area you’re traveling.
Airline change fees averaging $200.
Airline change fees on most airlines generally cost around $200, and even more for international flights. If you think you might have to change your flight, look into airlines with no or reasonable switch policies, such as Southwest Airlines, Alaska Airlines, and Virgin America. Make sure you know the change fee policy of your favorite airline before booking.
How to book a flight if you’re allergic to animals.
If you’re severely allergic to animals, before booking a flight, find out if the airline allows animals in the cabin of the plane, how many are permitted, and whether any are already booked on the flight. Tell the ticket agent you have severe allergies, and ask to be seated as far away from the animals as possible.
Speed up check-in with Pre-Check membership.
Next time you have a boarding pass, check it for TSA Pre-Check codes. If you’re a frequent traveler, consider enrolling in the expedited screening program before you book your next flight.
