TRAVEL TIP FOR STAYING HEALTHY
Anytime you travel four or more hours whether it be by car, train or plane, you increase your chance of developing a DVT or blood clot, which can become life threatening. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention states that more than 900,000 Americas are affected by DVTS annually. INSIGNIA by SIGVARIS offers fashionable compression solutions that reduce leg swelling, helps prevent varicose veins and blood clots and allows you to arrive at your destination with more energy thanks to improved blood flow. So even if you’re not traveling, wearing compression socks can help improve your overall health and well-being. For DVT Awareness Month, all socks and hosiery are up to 20% off at insigniastyle.com
UNIQUE TRAVEL TIP THAT WILL SAVE ME SOME MONEY
I have a suggestion that can save you money or it may even make you money. It’s called TURO; a peer-to-peer car sharing marketplace where travelers can rent the perfect car, wherever they want it, from a community of local car owners. Cars on Turo are on average 35% less than traditional car rental agencies. Many owners will deliver their car to the closest airport or, as a renter, you can pick up a car closer to where you're staying. TURO travelers get to completely customize their car rental experience, with over 800+ makes and models in nearly 5,000 cities. You can rent anything you want from a VW Bus to a McLaren. If you’re looking to make money, try listing your vehicle. On average, owners make $600 a month, and very active owners can make upwards of $3,000 a month. It’s a great way to earn money for your next vacation. For more information, visit www.turo.com
FIND THE VACATION OF YOUR DREAMS
Really, do some research online and ask your friends. I’ve also got a great dream suggestion. It’s the all new Dreams Playa Mujeres Golf & Spa Resort, a beachside paradise just ten minutes from downtown Cancun, Mexico, where families can experience the perfect combination of fun and relaxation while enjoying Unlimited-Luxury® with everything included from upscale accommodations to gourmet dining, entertainment and more. And, for a chance to win a 3-night stay for up to four guests to a Dreams Resorts & Spas property, visit www.dreamsresorts.com/ExperienceDreams to tell us why you need to Experience Dreams and be sure to follow #ExperienceDreams to join the conversation.
SUGGESTIONS FOR ROADSIDE SAFETY AND PEACE OF MIND
You have to plan for the unexpected. Whether we want them to or not, things like breakdowns, flat tires, dead batteries are bound to happen. Don’t let these things put a damper on your spring break travels, I just learned about this great new app. It’s called the Allstate Good Hands Rescue® app. It’s a roadside assistance mobile app and online platform that instantly puts you in touch with a national network of providers to help you with roadside needs, from jumpstarts and towing, to fuel delivery, lockouts and flat tires. The best part is that the service is for anyone, anytime no matter if you are an Allstate customer or not. The app provides the benefits of using a trusted brand like Allstate, without the commitment of being a policyholder. You pay as you go and you only pay for services you receive. Even better, the Good Hands Rescue Network of service providers gets to you in half the time than most rescuers do – saving you more time to enjoy your vacation. This app will give you peace of mind while on your vacation this year. For more information, visit www.allstate.com
