Episode 40: Passenger Bill of Rights

Happy Thanksgiving!  As we head into the busy holiday season, this episode focuses the passenger bill of rights for for airline, railway and cruise line travel.  Reyna Simone chats about some of the things she is most grateful for and discusses one of her Thanksgiving travel #fails.


Here is a really cool wallet card created by the Smarter Travel Blog containing the airline passenger bill of rights:  https://adobeindd.com/view/publications/6e1c0c8d-cccd-426b-ab77-53fa5e6e0de8/1/publication-web-resources/pdf/Fold_Up_Card_Template.pdf

But the silver lining:  Awesome shots of Machu Picchu!





The California Wildfires have claimed over 40 lives and left thousands of people homeless leading up to the holidays.  If you are interested in helping out those communities, here are some ways to do so:

World Central Kitchen:  this is one of my favorite charities.  They provide meals to those in need—and have a stellar record of helping in the aftermath of disasters (they’ve served 3.6 million meals in Puerto Rico since last year!) https://www.worldcentralkitchen.org/donate

American Red Cross:  The Red Cross is known for helping people and responding to disasters.  https://www.redcross.org/donate/hurricane-florence-donations.html/
