The Eight Tips To Getting A Free Airline upgrade

The Eight Tips To Getting A Free Airline upgrade

 

It is known that Premium seats are unaffordable to many. How would you like to travel first class to anywhere? There is a catch however. You’ll need to perform, one of these 8 tips to getting a Free airline upgrade for you to travel first class around the world if needed! :p.

1. Make Sure you Choose Your destination Carefully

Make sure you look for flights to beach resorts during the school holidays, when the majority on board will be families. The reason for this, is because the majority of the first class cabins will be empty and available for any upgrades you might want to ask for. So start nabbing, and you might get your free upgrade. Be reasonable.

2. Become a loyal flyer

It is known that airlines often sort out their upgrades the day before the flight, looking for regular fliers, who may fly with them again if given an upgrade.

3. Try and Travel alone

Single travelers usually get lucky , when there is just one or two seats available up front. Single travelers are often asked first.

4. Simple Asking

You could get a free upgrade by simply asking for one at the check-in desk.

5. Make sure your reason is good

Offering a good reasonable reason will give you more chances of an upgrade.

6. Be Nice and Smile

Being polite and dressed to impress could help you get an upgrade too after asking nicely.

7. Not a Happy Customer

If something is out of place with your seat, or belt, or whatever of a good reason to complain, use it to your benefit to ask for an upgrade.

8. Know people in high places

If you have a good friend who works for an airline, it can’t hurt to ask, but get in touch as soon as you know the details of your flight.

What To Do or Not Do in New Zealand

There are many ways to experience the lush, ridiculous beauty of New Zealand, and the best way to experience this is by driving.

New Zealand is not known for its easy public transport system and so , to experience New Zealand, you will have to experience the amazing landscapes and wild views.

There are several popular spots to know about.  The real beauty of New Zealand, is found on the road

New Zealand Road Trip

If you are on budget, then you can take a guided tour, or rent your own car or caravan.  It really depends on what you are trying to do. If  you do decide to drive, make sure you understand you will be driving on the left, and not the right as most countries.

In the following article, we will discus what you can do and not do in your New Zealand road trip!   Make sure you pick the right car for your trip.  If you choose to get car in winter, make sure you add on snow chains. You will need to get up the ski resort roads

So just think about the kind of trip that you want to do and get a car or van that fits it. If you will be trying to find a place to camp, make sure you learn how the camping system works in New Zealand.  First of all, its best to think of getting a van, with a toilet.  IF you don’t get one with a toilet, you won’t be able to freedom camp.  Usually when you freedom camp, you are allowed to camp on public land for free as long as you have the right facilities.

It Is very important you understand how the camper-van and freedom camping system works in New Zealand and not abuse it.

New Zealand Road Trip

Make sure you understand that you can’t freedom camp anywhere near Wanaka or Queenstown.    These are considered popular places, so you can’t really be there camping . No room.  The places where you can camp, are at holiday parks.  However keep in mind that many people really do abuse the holiday park campout.

Keep note, Holiday parks, do not come cheap.  You could pay around $20-$30 Holiday parks aren’t cheap though. I paid between $20-$30 for a total night for 1 person for a non-powered site and wifi .

There are cheaper options, like outside towns, and usually in a dead zone for any type of phone services like 3G…etc.

 

Half of the beauty of New Zealand lies in getting lost and finding your own favorite little spots, and it’s one of the best reasons to get a car.    Because New Zealand is so sparsely populated, you can get away with winging it and being spontaneous here. There is always a campsite and always somewhere to sleep. Don’t worry!

Make sure you don’t underestimate the road dangers in New Zealand.   All the roads are basically one lane in either direction, and the remote roads don’t even have guardrails.

New Zealand Road Trip

 

All roads are hardly straight.   New Zealand landscape frequently likes to add obstacles to the adventure like landslides, hitchhikers, and sheep, so be alert.   All roads are well labelled, so it’s hard to get lost.  Unless you are not paying attention.

It takes a while to get used to the roads in New Zealand.  It’s much better to drive slower and be safe, and do not drive on the RIGHT! Only on the left!

DO- Book a Room with a BNB

Do make sure you book a room with a place you can trust and is well renown for its accommodation services.   Eden Park Bed and Breakfast in Auckland , New Zealand, is an award winning bed and breakfast found right next door to Eden Park Venue.  For more information on availability and prices please visit Eden Park Bed and Breakfast NZ here.
