Here’s what I’m reading about today in the world of travel:
Cheap Flights of the Day: Super cheap fares of just over $300 round-trip to multiple destinations in Europe! Good Sao Paulo fares, just a bit above $500. There are also some Iceland fares for under $500. These aren’t as low as some of the Wow Air sales but it’s a pretty good fare given that it’s valid for summer travel.
Wyndham Rewards announces their new elite program. They’ve actually got some really interesting perks for elite members. This is definitely not a “me too” copy of someone else’s program. Worth looking into, even though I’m not a fan of most of their brands.
Two hotels are suing to block the Starwood/Marriott merger. I have to think that there are provisions in the franchise agreements of these hotels that would nullify such claims. And yet, two hotels are paying their lawyers a lot of cash to file suit. I’ll be interested to see if this develops into a real issue.
A cool new tool from Hilton allows you to see the surroundings of your hotel before you check-in as noted by The Gate (which should make selecting your room ahead of time a bit more valuable for folks particular on their room).
The prices for parking at MGM Resorts in Las Vegas have been released, but there are ways to still park there for free.
RFID comes to luggage tags at airports, which should make it much easier to track lost bags.
Interesting take on free speech. A group of union members from Southwest Airlines are suing Chicago-Midway airport.
