If you have booked train travel on the days of October 1, 2, 5, 7, or 8 (2022) you may experience disruptions due to a possible drivers/conductors strike. Thameslink is asking that only passengers who absolutely must travel do so, and even then to expect long delays. If in doubt, check the strike info link here.
Every one of our city-specific pages at clueintravelbooks.com have now been updated for August. This month, many of the extras feature new and different things to do. Whether you yearn to climb the outside of a Manhattan skyscraper or learn to make proper pasta in Venice, we’ve got you covered. Check them out today and please help us spread the word about out fabulous travel guides.
This book was one of our first and continues to boast the best reviews and stars. We’re so happy it was chosen and to celebrate, we’re offering it at a special price this Wednesday and Thursday, July 20 and 21, 2022. If you haven’t grabbed our Rome guide yet, or have an edition from a previous year, this is your time to snag a deal. It will be 60% off!
The newest train line in decades has now opened in London and expectations are that it will serve around 200 million riders each year. It is sleek, clean, smooth, and affordable. We love that it goes to and from London’s Heathrow Airport terminals for just one-third of the price of the same-day purchasing of the famous Heathrow Express train. Another advantage is that you can board or disembark from it at forty different stations throughout the city, rather than just Paddington Station.
So what are its disadvantages? Well, it will take longer than the Heathrow Express, double the time when both lines are compared side by side from Paddington. But does fifteen minutes compared to thirty really matter when you can save a whopping £20 each way? We don’t think so.
We have always enjoyed taking the Heathrow Express but will now probably only use it when we can take advantage of its super-discounted price of £6 (!) which is what you get when booking more than a month in advance online. Either way, it’s always nice when travelers are given more choices.
After a long wait, we are pleased to announce the arrival of our newest guide book, Bored in Miami – Awesome Experiences for the Repeat Visitor. It’s a truly fantastic book that will get your juices flowing as you plan your next trip to South Florida. Available in both eBook and paperback, it’s also a great read for first-time visitors to Miami and Miami Beach. Grab a copy here.
It’s finally over. Today, the last major hurdle for international travelers has been rescinded by the CDC. As of July 12, 2022 people reentering the Untied States from abroad will NOT have to show a negative Covid test before their flight. You can now travel freely without any Covid testing during your beautiful trip. In addition Italy, England, Scotland, and France have lifted all of their Covid restrictions and rules. Let’s celebrate!
This month, we decided to feature awesome local sights that you may not have heard of. In each of our Clued In cities there’s a treasure trove of undiscovered places. Take a peek from the menu bar above and see if you actually know about them already. Below are just three of the ten.
BREAKING: As of today, all Covid-19 travel restrictions have now been lifted for France, Italy, England, and Scotland. Spain has minimal requirement. Now you can start planning that incredible trip to Europe/ UK.
But there are a few caveats. Here’s the need-to-know on the subject:
This new benefit extends to all Amex cardholders regardless of which Amex card they have, but the flights must all be booked through “Amex Travel.” In addition, the cardholder will only be reimbursed for a portion (up to 75%) of the non-refundable flight cost.
This new benefit is called Trip Cancel Guardand was previously only extended to Platinum Amex cardholders -if they had a good reason to cancel their trip.
While no reason for the cancellation is now needed, all cardholders/travelers must cancel at least two full days before their departure date.
We think it’s a good deal overall, especially for those wanting that extra peace of mind when booking a flight. Hey, it’s better than nothing.
