I'm using this as a checklist for the next time I travel--getting good prices, not forgetting things, and keeping all of my information in one place are all issues I've struggled with. Most of the websites mentioned in the book that I didn't know about before actually have better features than the ones I regularly use. Looking forward to finishing the section about offline maps. Awesome.

Well written book for business and leisure travelers alike. Definitely helps organize and shop for your trips, I learned about a few services I had never heard of before, and I'm hoping they can help me save money next time I have to buy a plane ticket or make hotel reservation.

4.0 out of 5 stars Easy, useful advice June 28, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Offers a lot of great advice - not sure how I didn't figure out some of it on my own given how much I travel for work! Current, relevant, easy to read, summarizes the useful apps in a list at the end of each chapter. This will impact how I travel. I will definitely follow the passport advice next time I'm abroad on business (photocopy for easier replacement is a must!)
