    International Travel Tips

    Last updated 2 years ago

    International travel is more complicated than domestic travel, especially since September 11, 2001.  Besides meeting strict security requirements, you also have to find long-term parking for your car. Follow these travel tips to ensure your international travel plans go as smoothly as possible:

    • Make Sure Your Passport Is Up-to-Date

    Many travelers don’t realize that their passports have expired until it’s too late.  Always check your passport’s expiration date against both the day that you plan to leave the country and the day that you plan to return.  You also want to check with your passport office to ensure you don’t need a visa to travel to your intended country. If you do need a visa, you need to send off your passport and paperwork as soon as possible.

    Additionally, remember that the rules governing passports for people under the age of 16 are different.  You should always check with the U.S. State Department to make sure that your child’s passport is still valid.

    • Check for Travel Warnings

    The U.S. Department of State has a website dedicated to issuing travel alerts and travel warnings.  Travel alerts refer to a temporary state of affairs, like a flu outbreak or a terrorist threat. They’re not to be taken lightly, but the expectation is that they’ll eventually cease.  Travel warnings, on the other hand, are a more permanent fixture and concern issues like widespread crime and civil war.  Make sure to check out the website so that you can make up your own mind about whether or not you should be traveling.

    Whether you’re flying to Costa Rica for a much-deserved vacation or are making a fact-finding trip to the Sudan, you’re going to need long-term airport parking.  Fortunately, for those flying out of the Orlando airport, there’s Park, Bark and Fly.  We provide great airport and long-term RV parking.  For more information, call us at (407) 855-5899 today.

    Four Stress-Free Business Travel Tips

    Last updated 2 years ago

    Traveling for business can be a nerve-wracking experience because of the pressure to perform for clients or distant managers, but it doesn’t need to be a trial because of the actual travel involved.  Here’s how to have a stress-free business trip:

     1.      Take Advantage of Corporate Parking

    Talk to your business’ travel department about corporate parking.  If your business already has a set corporate parking program, take advantage it. If it doesn’t, speak with your employer to learn how you can be reimbursed for your parking costs.

     2.      Use Rewards Programs

    Hotels, airlines, and parking companies love business travelers, because they make up a huge percentage of the travel industry’s customer base.  Therefore, there are a number of rewards programs out there for everything from your hotel to your parking facility.  Before you book your trip, be sure to ask about rewards programs for business travelers.  You could earn free upgrades, free parking, and more.

     3.      Pack Light

    Since you’re probably going to be in and out of your destination city within 72 hours, there’s no reason to bother checking any luggage.  Waiting at the baggage claim will only eat up precious moments that you could have used to prepare for your presentation.  Make sure that everything you need can fit in your carryon by choosing the right size toiletries.

     4.      Arrive Early

    It pays to arrive early, as you’ll never have to suffer the anxiety of racing to catch your flight.  In addition, if you arrive early, there’s always the chance that you can manage to get on an earlier flight and make it to your destination with time to spare.

    If you’re a frequent business traveler, use Park, Bark and Fly for your Orlando airport parking needs.  We offer numerous perks through our rewards program.  For more information, call us at (407) 855-5899 today.
