Consumer travel advocate Christopher Elliott gives you the inside scoop on how to travel smart in this new guide from National Geographic. Calling on practical advice accumulated from more than 20 years of experience in the field, Elliott guides you through the complexities of travel—from cruises to car rentals, travel insurance to time shares, restaurants to resorts, and airlines to agents—and arms you with all the information you need for a successful trip. Full of actionable advice and the answers to the most common—and perplexing—questions, Elliott guides readers through the new rules of travel and breaks through the virtual confusion of pricing, offers, discounts, packages, and every imaginable aspect of a trip, every step of the way. For beginning and seasoned travelers, for business and pleasure trips, this is the ultimate consumer guide to your journeys domestically or around the world.
