Johnny Jet

When you have newborns and you're traveling, Johnny recommends bringing your car seat along. You will have to pay for a seat, obviously, but it's worth it safety wise. Always ask if there's an empty row or seat and maybe they won't charge you.

The most expensive day to fly this summer is July 9th, the Sunday after the 4th of July. Sundays are always traditionally more expensive to travel, while Tuesday and Wednesday are the cheapest.

Johnny Jet

Johnny Jet says that he made a big mistake when renting a car recently because he forgot to request a toll tag when renting a car. He didn't know you could, so it was a new tip he learned. If you're planning on renting a car for a trip, always request a toll tag so you don't have to pay the tolls while traveling — or so you won't get a ticket.

Johnny Jet

Johnny Jet is fresh from a trip back east to attend the travel related "Freddy Awards." Alaska Airlines received top honors as the best airline. Meanwhile, United settled with Doctor Dow after they beat him and dragged him off the airplane. The settlement is undisclosed, but Johnny Jet guesses it was at least $10 million. The incident also prompted changes in their policies to bump passengers, including offering up to $10,000 to get you to give up your seat.
