"I am an avid international traveler, have been a tax paying resident in 3 countries (and on 3 continents) and have written a bestselling book of travel tips. Even after all this experience, I picked up some new tips in this book that I am eager to test out. Specifically, I loved the chapter on how to score cheap flights, maximizing layovers and the sample itineraries/frameworks for short trips. If you’re a new traveler you will get even more out of this book. But as I said, experienced travelers are likely to pick up some valuable tips as well. Either way, if you love travel, this guide is well worth a few bucks."
"Even seasoned travelers can learn secrets from this book! I thought I was a seasoned traveler in-the-know with a lot of insider information, that is until I read International Travel Secrets. This book offered tips heretofore unknown to me such as using ITA Matrix to scope out significant reductions in flight fares to having a “fake wallet” as a protection against theft, emailing scanned passport information as insurance against a lost passport and many, many, more suggestions including avoiding unnecessary insurance, and knowing how to choose phone communication plans . This is a great little book with fantastic ideas for optimizing layovers and scoping out the best deals on hotel accommodations. It’s truly a great resource for all travelers, even those who are well seasoned!"
