Travel Insurance....boring, boring, boring....

Now that the Vegas trip has all been paid for, its probably about time to have a little looksie at Travel Insurance. 

Remember the ash cloud last year, BA lost our luggage (and are constantly on strike), Sam ALWAYS gets bitten by something weird which requires medical treatment etc etc.

We are covered annually via Virgin, but individually everybody else needs to be covered in case anything goes "pete tong" - before, during or after the trip.

Some of you maybe covered via your current account etc, but its worth checking.

Money Saving Expert has a great page on Travel Insurance - please see below link (they also recommend Virgin as being the cheapest for worldwide travel under 50's, and High Risk for worldwide travel over 50's).

Thank you Thank you Thank you....

....we have now paid the final bill for Vegas, thank you very much everyone for paying us so promptly.

10 weeks to go......we should receive a pack containing the tickets, baggage labels etc etc in 6 weeks time.

Online booking will open for us all to check in (we already have our seats as we are group booking so no worries about people being sat apart). Nearer the time I will post the reference numbers needed.

Alternatively, Gatwick operates a "Twilight Check-In" service, where if you want, you can go to the airport the night before to check in all your bags and get your boarding card (if you havent printed it off via checking in online). This is a great service if you are planning on a) trying to get a cheaper upgrade to premium, or b) if you want to purchase the emergency exit seats for the extra leg room. I believe these are £75 each way.

(FYI - I  think the pictures/videos I have been uploading dont appear on email, you have to log on to the blog to see them)

What can you do in Vegas if...

...you are mental:

Then take a skyjump off the Stratosphere Tower

...you lost your luck at the Casino's and require something free to do:

Then watch the volcano erupt at the Mirage Hotel

...you want a day trip outside of Vegas:

Then take a helicopter ride over the Hoover Dam and Grand Canyon
