Tips and Hints:
- When to go: Avoid travelling during peak times, especially Thanksgiving, when there are almost always flight delays – especially if the weather turns bad!
- Food and Drink: American portions are enormous – often quite adequate for two people. If you want to avoid fatty fast foods head for one of the many help-yourself salad bars – these offer great fresh salads at a very good price. Americans drink coffee…it is difficult to find places serving tea so if you cannot do without your cup of tea carry some teabags with you.
- Keeping in Contact: Check that your cell phone will work in America! American phones operate on a different frequency from systems in the rest of the world and only GMS tri and quad-band phones will work there. Also, there are large areas, such as the National Parks, where there is no cell-phone signal; you can usually keep in touch by email in most places.
- Medical Insurance: Make sure you have it, as you may not be allowed into the country without adequate travel insurance.
