Merry Christmas and Happy New Year


Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to our readers in as many foreign languages as we can find.


singapore-christmas-treeMay our gift for Christmas and our resolution for the New Year be letting our voices be heard by air, hotel, rental car, cruise line, and other travel providers. May this holiday season and the new year bring a better travel experience, less deceptive advertising, and more price transparency for all. Plus, may we all learn to say Merry Christmas and Happy New Year in all of these languages.
