dictionary travel

Sometimes among travelers can be a lot Ling / jargon. I thought that would be pretty cool to put all those terms in one place with a simple definition. I just will not say that it is completely filled with a collection, but it is at least a good start. This is some of the most common terms, which, I think, can be easily confused or do not understand.

A la carte: This term is often to be found in the menu of restaurants or room service in reference to food. This means that every item on individual basis, as opposed to the pieces of food or the package. So if fries "a la carte", this means that you have to pay for them separately.

partner: Business partner in the tourist destination. For example, a hotel can be a partner restaurant. The restaurant is owned and operated by the same company as the hotel, but it is governed by different people. Many times, when you eat at a partner hotel's restaurant, you can get a discount or incentive. They both want to benefit from each other, so they love to send customers to each other.

flights: If the traveler combines two reverse trip, but with opposite points of start and destination. They use one segment of each one to achieve total cost reduction. For example, the first flight ticket will be doubled booked from Chicago to Dallas, and the second – flight from Dallas to Chicago. The traveler would use the first part of the first visit and the first part of the second trip. Most often this is done during the week to avoid the fare in the middle of the week.

Luggage size: This is either the weight or size that your airline will allow to bring in flight. Usually this is a very hard standard, so be sure to make sure you are within the allowed limits on luggage. If you go out into the street, they sometimes or charge you an additional fee or forced to remove some things from his bag.

Blackout periods: Specific days or times when special rates are not available. Usually this is caused by the long period of demand for flights as airlines know they can charge more money.

ran: This means that the number of seats on the flight was actually sold or resold. If you are lucky and the flight was out of place, you can "bump" on the first class to fill their empty space. On the other hand, if the flight is oversold, it is likely that you will get a "bump" on the next available flight. One way to avoid this with you – you check in early, because they sometimes make a decision.
