By now, we’ve all opened our gifts and and picked which gift card to spend first. (LOL) If you received an iTunes gift card for Christmas, don’t spend it all on music, videos and tv show downloads. Save a little because we have a fabulous, must-have travel app. ‘Just Landed’ is the best app for tracking flights.

Have you ever left way too early to pick someone up at the airport and had to drive in circles around an airport waiting on a flight to land? Have you even fought for a parking space at the cell phone waiting area at an airport only to get the call that the plane was delayed? Well…there’s an app for that and it’s called ‘Just Landed.’

The app ‘Just Landed’ promises seamless airport pickup and it delivers! ‘Just Landed’ lets you search for the needed flight and once found, you tap on it and the app begins to track the flight (maximum 48 hours in advance). Once tracking has started, updates are sent to you via push notifications.

With the notifications you can then prepare to pickup your travelers. ‘Just Landed’ helps you prepare with flight information like flight arrival time, terminal, gate and even baggage claim information. My absolute favorite feature is the one that tells you when to leave for the airport. By monitoring current traffic conditions and flight status, the app gives you an accurate (but estimated) travel time. Simply Fabulous!

With ‘Just Landed’ you’ll never be late or too early again to pick up your favorite travelers from the airport.
Before the next holiday and before you have to pick someone up from the airport, download this smart and dependable travel app. ‘Just Landed’ is currently only available for iPhones. To buy/download visit the iTunes store and visit www.getjustlanded.com for more information.

Save Money on Travel in 2013…7 Tips on Packing Right!

Let’s all make a New Years’ resolution to save money in all areas of our lives in 2013, especially while traveling. One of the best ways to save money while traveling is to eliminate the ever increasing checked bag fee(s). If you gave the family the gift of travel this Christmas and are planning a spring break trip, keep in mind that checked bag fees can put a serious dent in your trip’s spending allowance.

A family of four can spend upto $200 roundtrip just on checked bag fees alone (minimum 1 bag each @ $25). If your bag is over the weight limit, tack on another $25-$50 per bag. The best way to eliminate or reduce that fee, is to learn how to efficiently pack a carry-on bag!

#1. Select the right size bag.

Before you can pack a carry-on bag efficiently, you must purchase the right size bag and make sure it is a well made/sturdy/tough piece of luggage. The right size, sure to fit in the overhead bin is 22″ x 14″ x 9″.

#2. Check the weather

There’s also a system to packing the perfect carry-on bag. Check the weather in your destination and choose the appropriate clothes for the climate.

#3. Pick one color palette for your trip.

I know that will be hard ladies (lol) but we are on vacation not the runway at NY’s fashion week.

#4. Mix and Match

Take only 2-3 bottoms and 5-7 tops, mix and match creating 10 outfits. The same applies to every member in the family.

#5. Limit Your Shoes

Pack a total of 3 pairs of shoes! Yes, only 3…one dress shoe, pair of sneakers and an ultra comfortable pair for walking.

#6. Roll Your Clothes

Once everything is laid out, start packing. Rolling your clothes is best, because it takes up less space and stuff items like jewelry into your shoes using all available space.

#7. Use a Carry-on Tote

Put your toiletries in your carry-on totebag or purse, creating a little more room in your carry-on bag.

Just think all the money you save on bag fees can be spent on rejuvenating spa services, fun activities and adventures and tours while on vacation.

Do you have a cool packing tip? Share it with us and we’ll share it with the BMWK family!

Happy Packing! Happy travels in 2013!
