8 Money Saving Travel Apps

This was one of the websites I came across last year that is pretty informative, and if you like apps, it is a great resource for helping find the right one to make traveling just a bit easier (on your pocketbook). Best Money Saving Travel Apps.

One Final Note

2015 also saw the implementation of the 3-hour check-in rule for international flights out or Philip Goldson International Airport, (PGIA) otherwise known as Belize City (BZE). Take a look at the question posted on Trip Advisor, and the responses folks (including me) posted in response. 3 hours early for BC airport?

Some reputable places have special off season licences. Always check with the manager and never buy lobster off season from a fisherman.

Will there be fresh lobster in stores and restaurants when we visit in March 2016?
