Get Two Extra Eurail Days, Free!

June 9, 2010

You can squeeze a lot into two days in Europe – museums, mountains, hikes, bikes, markets, mopeds, beer gardens and real gardens.

So if someone wants to give you an extra two days on your Eurail Global 15-day pass for free, you should take them up on it.

Book your pass by July 30th, 2010 (and be a student under 26 years old with an ISIC) and that’s exactly what they’ll do for you. It will give your itinerary a little breathing room and maybe let you fit in an extra country or two.

The Global pass gives you unlimited travel on the entire rail networks of Austria, Belgium, Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, Norway, the Netherlands, Portugal, Romania, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, and Switzerland.

Stop Circling the Airport – Park for Free!

October 13, 2008

My dear student travelers, it’s almost that time of year where you’ll have to pack up and head home for the turkey and presents and endless questions about your majors, your love lives, and your finances. Or maybe you’re already home but have relatives coming from far away to pry into your personal life. Either way, trips to the airport will be involved.

The worst part of going to the airport to pick someone up is the endless circling and shifting of the car as policemen whistle and shout at you to keep moving. Wouldn’t it be great to avoid all that? Wouldn’t you or your parents rather sit calmly until the pick-upee is ready to be swooped up at the curb? Well now you can.

Some of the more forward-thinking airports around the country now offer cell phone lots, also called “Park & Call Zones”, “Phone & Go”, “Stage & Go” or some variation of that theme. You can park for free in these lots, usually up to 20 or 30 minutes, while you wait for your auntie to gather her luggage. Of course you must stay in the car and be ready to leave at a moment’s notice, otherwise you could get a ticket for not using the short-term parking.

Airports that offer these lots include:

So save those parking dollars and put them toward something you really want, like Spring Break in Brazil.
