Services, People and Online sites that help make planning & enjoying a trip just a little bit easier. And of course, if you have something you like, let us know.
Clear Biometric ID Service
This may not always be able to speed you through a stalled TSA line, but if it is available at your Airport, a great investment for many frequent flyer types.

We love this service. Especially when your arriving in a new city after a 15 hour flight, nothing better than having someone there to meet and greet and get you to your hotel. And the Business Class pricing is not that expensive, and works so much better than Uber Black.
Blacklane provides professional ground transportation at the most competitive rates in more than 50 countries, 250 cities, and at over 500 airports around the globe. Whether traveling for business or leisure, book our black car chauffeur service as your next shuttle transfer from the airport, hotel, or event, and skip the taxi lines.
For your convenience, we’ve created an app that allows you to book, pay for, manage, and view upcoming and past black car chauffeured rides.
Fantastic Apartment service for London. But book ahead, they tend to be sold out many months in advance.
A great resource for interesting things to discover on you journeys. Mostly city guides for the unexpected great things you will love about the place.
This has turned into our Favorite Online Fare Price checker… even for Business or First Class. Any fare that we find, we double check on Momondo, and it scours all the resellers, and ususally finds something (if it is available). We have been able to get Business Class at a 7% discount quite often, so worth a look. And for the Dirt Cheap or Error Fares it finds who has them quickly and effieiciently. Better to use the websites from a standard computer though.
Your fastest and easiest way to find out who flys where and gather your options. You can not book flights here, but it will lead you to where the flight can be purchased. Or from here you can use a Booking Bot and find out who offers the flights at what cost.
Matrix Airfare Search
For a much more in-depth search, the Matrix is a good bet. But it can be a bit tricky to get up to speed on how to manage a good search using this online tool. You can not book from here, but use the information to book via an agent of a Booing Bot onlin.e
Lounge access before a long flight or long stop-overs is essential. A quick shower and a light snack can really make the difference to enjoying your trip. And as a rule, better WiFi and a bit more quiet can be found in the lounge. For those who may not have this service via a Premium Credit Card, should look into signing up if your plans include a lot of flight travel in the near future.
Lounge Buddy will esentially get you into most of the same lounges as Priority Pass, but for a fee per each entry. This is an OK option, but you are smarter getting a Premium Credit Card that offers Lounge Access as part of the Perks.
We stumbled upon this luggage at the opening of the LA Pop-Up store and think it is great. Durable, Affordable and built to last for life. ANd the carry-on luggage has a charging station for goosting your gadgets, neat.
Bandolier iPhone Case and Shoulder Strap
A great iPhone accessory. Keeps the phone ready to use and you never have to fear dropping it. And now available through Amazon.
We really like the things from Bag Tag, a couple of guys from France makeing groovey travel stuff, worth checking out.
Caviar House & Prunier
We shall admit to loving a lobster sandwich to bring on a flight with us. A bit pricey for some, but it sure makes a great snack prior to take-off, and this tastes way better than enything they are going to serve up on the flight, even better than Singapore First Class sate.
