Johnny Jet says that Global Entry has gotten so popular that it's almost as long as the regular TSA lines. The next best thing is Mobile Passport by the US Government. It's an app for iOS and Android that allows you to have your passport data in your mobile phone -- and it's free. Once you land, you turn on your phone and hit submit on the phone and you have four hours to clear through customs. It's a great alternative and cuts down on the waiting times.
This week's travel website ... Dream Cheaper. You send them your existing hotel reservation and they will continually shop around and if they find a cheaper rate, they will rebook you automatically and save you money. You'll sleep in the very same hotel room you initially booked but pay up to 60% less! And they'll keep doing it until 24 hours before you check in.
Johnny is back in L.A. after 55 days, 10 countries and 6 states. This week is part two of Johnny's talk on Global Entry, where you arrange ahead of time to get credentials for expedited clearance into the United States for low risk travelers. Global Entry costs $100 for five years, and Amex holders can even get the fee reimbursed. Johnny says it's the best thing he ever did.
