Keep your shoes on for takeoff and landing

When you get on a plane, do not immediately take off your shoes once seated, instead, wait until you are airborne and approaching your cruising altitude. This is in case you have an after takeoff emergency, you won't be without shoes when evacuating the plane.

The same is true on landing. Put your shoes back on as part of your pre-landing preparation.

Pay attention to the safety demo

Pay attention to the safety procedures onboard the plane. It is important tht you know how to leave the airplane in case of an emergency. The flight attendants are really doing this for your benefit, so do them the courtesy and pay attention.

Research hotel valet parking

When using a hotel's parking facility, check if they have self-park facilities or just valet. Also ask about surrounding parking garages. You could save some bucks. Although the in/out privileges at your hotel may be worth paying the extra charge.

Always check your credit card bill

You should always verify your car rental bill before paying. Ask to see the bill and if you don't understand something, ask to have it explained before you pass the credit card to the agent.
