Smart Ways To Carry Money While Traveling

Carrying money on vacation is a balancing act between safety and utility. We want to keep our money carefully tucked away and safe from potential thieves, while simultaneously avoiding the need to strip off clothes and rifle through a dozen hidden pockets with each purchase we make. This week’s Travel Tip Tuesday brings you nine smart ways to help you carry your money both securely and intelligently while traveling.

Divide Money

Even if you disregard all other advice about carrying money, take this tip to heart: Whenever possible, divvy up your travel cash and credit cards into multiple safe spots. If you have all your money in one place, it only takes one time for a thief to completely wipe you out. Keep some money attached to your person and some in a bag/wallet that you carry. If your bag gets lost or stolen, you’ll still have enough to get to a police station or back to your hotel.

Favor on-Body Storage

Under-clothing storage accessories have come a long way since neck pouches and money belts came onto the scene. Though those classics are still in favor, newer options include bra stashes, as well as pants, underwear, and undershirts with built-in pockets for safe storage. On-body storage accessories are particularly useful if you’re sleeping somewhere that doesn’t have a secure place for cash and other valuables.

Keep Small Bills Handy

Changing or withdrawing large amounts of money minimizes the fees you’ll pay to get local currency, but it also means you’ll be traveling with far more cash – and larger bills – than you’d have on you at home. Make money preparation part of your morning routine: As you’re packing your bag, make sure you have a variety of small bills and coins at the ready for purchases such as food, souvenirs, and attraction entry fees.

Carry an Anti-Theft Bag

Bags made specifically for traveling are an excellent investment. They often include features such as cut-proof, steel-cable-reinforced shoulder straps, slash-proof fabric, and locking zippers. Since elements such as these slow down thieves, they can do a good job of deterring opportunistic pickpockets.

Trim Your Wallet

Are you going to need your library card when you’re halfway around the world? Unlikely. Before you leave, take the time to go through your wallet and take out everything except the necessities (a universal credit card such as Visa or Mastercard, a backup credit card, a government-issued identification card, etc.). Not only will it help you travel lighter, but you’ll have less to replace if your wallet is lost or stolen.

Use A Dummy Wallet

If you’re traveling to a place known for pickpockets, consider getting a cheap wallet to keep in your pocket or bag. Pad the wallet with some small bills and make it look more real by slipping in one or two of those sample credit cards you get with offers in the mail. A dummy wallet can stop pickpockets before they get to your real wallet.

Buy A Travel Wallet

In addition to a dummy version, you might also consider a wallet that you reserve specifically for travel. If your day-to-day wallet is constantly stuffed with cards for gym memberships, gift cards, frequent-buyer punch cards, etc, then the pockets are likely to be stretched out when you minimize the contents for travel. By having a travel-only wallet, your cards will have snug pockets that they can’t slip out of accidentally.

Use Money Alternatives

In high-traffic settings such as metro stations and bus stops, it’s nice to be able to forgo cash or credit-card transactions and rely instead on a multi-use ticket or other cash alternative. If you’re in a city where the public-transportation system offers multi-use cards (for instance, London’s Oyster card or San Francisco’s Clipper card) or where you can buy a bunch of tickets at once (such as a “carnet” on the Paris metro, which gets you 10 single-ride tickets for one discounted price), then take advantage of those options. You’ll reduce your chances of losing your wallet simply by retrieving and stowing it fewer times.

Stow Valuables Securely

Sometimes the best way to carry money is to not carry it at all. Many hotels offer an in-room safe to store your valuables, and if you have an item (or a wad of cash) that you’re particularly nervous about, see if the hotel also has a safe-deposit box behind the desk. If you do use a hotel lockbox of any sort though, remember to retrieve your items when you leave. In the rush to pack up and depart, out of sight can easily mean out of mind – until you’re on your way to the airport. Leave a colorful note on top of your suitcase as a reminder.

How To Travel With Friends

Traveling creates memories that you will remember for life. Traveling with friends gives you the opportunity to share those memories in person rather than through social media. Here are a few tips to plan an incredible trip with friends.

Choose Your Companions

When deciding who you want to go with on a trip, it is important to choose people with whom you get along. Low-maintenance, laid-back personalities, and groups of friends who already know each other can promote a tension-free trip. Sharing an experience can bring you closer to one another and strengthen a lifelong friendship.

Communication

Whether you are on a trip with your best friend or a new friend, establishing a clear channel of communication will benefit the overall success of the trip. Planning your trip together will ensure that everyone is on the same page, and will allow any questions or concerns to be addressed in advance. It is important to provide an opportunity for everyone to share his or her opinion on trip decisions, be it about the location of the hotel or the timing of departure.

Establish Vacation Goals

Establish expectations in advance by asking yourselves, “what is the number one thing that we want to accomplish during this trip?” Determine what you hope to get out of the trip as early on as possible. Unless you’ve already discussed in advance, a lot of time can be wasted trying to figure out what to do once you’ve arrived at your destination. Make a list of these goals to ensure everyone is satisfied.

Pool Your Funds

Create a “group fund” where everyone contributes the same amount of money at the beginning of the trip. Apply the money from this fund to group purchases such as shared taxi rides, groceries, and gasoline. When the fund is running low, everyone contributes the same amount again until the trip is over.

Five Fantastic Destination Spas In The Western United States

Finding complete relaxation sometimes requires escaping for a while to somewhere dedicated to making you feel new again. While hotels everywhere have spa programs, the western US is host to some of the nation’s top destination spas – resorts offering a full restorative experience including therapy, healthy cuisine, and wellness programs; often amid scenic views and perfect weather. We’ve selected this short list of destination spas in the western states based on their charm, amenities, quality, and the immersiveness of their programs.

Mii amo Spa At Enchantment Resort

Tucked away in the Coconino National Forest north of Phoenix, Arizona, Mii amo is a secluded destination spa perfect for finding your center. While Sedona’s red rock formations instill a sense of zen, Mii amo sits among them harmoniously, with an open and inviting architecture designed around its natural surroundings. The spa features massage techniques from around the globe and transformational activities including Native American inspired rituals and meditation. Hiking trails and a full calendar of fitness and wellness workshops keep your options rounded. Sessions are offered both outdoors and within Mii amo’s many scenic treatment rooms.

The Well Spa At Miramonte

Located in Southern California’s Palm Springs Desert community at the Miramonte Resort, The Well Spa is considered a favorite by locals and visitors alike. This charming Tuscan-inspired villa sits peacefully afoot the Santa Rosa Mountains, adorned with bougainvillea and cyprus , setting the perfect mood to unwind. The spa, covering 12,000 square feet (1.114 square meters), boasts three outdoor treatment spaces, saline pools, bench-water therapy, and a eucalyptus-infused steam room. Begin your spa experience by choosing a stone on which a word of intention is inscribed. This becomes a mantra for your journey to restoration. A few unique treatments offered by The Well Spa include their signature Sticks and Stones massage, a honey massage, a couples painting party using restorative muds.

Claremont Hotel Club & Spa

If you’d like to relax and visit the San Francisco Bay Area, think of the Claremont Hotel Club & Spa as your island in the city. This spa offers a robust menu of treatments and sweeping bay views within a lovingly restored resort dating back to 1915. Watch a sunset over San Francisco in the distance from open-bay windows during a eucalyptus bath therapy session. Customized hydrafacials, aromatherapy, and up to six styles of massage are among the spa therapy offerings. Unwind at your own pace while within minutes of an amazing food scene and northern California’s natural beauty. Feeling adventurous after relaxing? Work on your swing at the on-site tennis club, or take a day trip to San Francisco, coastal villages, or the nearby wine country.

Estancia La Jolla Hotel & Spa

The coastal village of La Jolla, just minutes north of San Diego, California, is home to this luxury hotel and spa modeled as a charming spanish-colonial villa. Estancia sits on 10 acres of immaculately-curated gardens high on the cliffs above Torrey Pines state beach. It’s award-winning spa features a Sea Stone Massage, eucalyptus steam room, and a meditation garden with overstuffed pillows. Bringing someone special with you? An intimate couple’s bungalow featuring a private deck and outdoor soaking tub for two catches ocean breezes all day.

Spa By The Sea

On the island of Kauai, imagine a massage right on the beach, the sound of waves, and a scent of cocoa butter. Literally a spa by the sea, Hawaii’s Waipouli Beach Resort features beach massages, body treatments making use of volcanic ash (an antioxidant), and body wraps with noni fruit, used for centuries by traditional healers throughout the Pacific Islands. When you’re not enjoying the sun, sand, and natural beauty of Kauai, a Japanese Soaking Tub, Vichy Shower room, and Chiropractic suite offer additional ways to relax at this tropical-destination spa.

Feeling like it’s time to hit your reset button? We all deserve some time for ourselves now and then. Putting time on the calendar to decompress might be the best thing you do for yourself this year, and a destination spa out west waits to welcome you.

Travel Resolutions For The New Year Ahead

The dawn of a new year is the perfect time to think about what you’d like to do for yourself over the next 12 months. “Travel more” is a popular New Year’s resolution, since travel has the capacity to make you happier, healthier, more creative, and inspired. But it isn’t a very specific resolution, making it hard to act upon. To help kick off 2018 on the right foot, this week’s Travel Tip Tuesday brings you five specific resolutions for a fantastic year of travel ahead.

Weekend Getaways

Weekend getaways are the perfect opportunity for travelers who are limited on time, pinching pennies, or simply in need of some adventure in the time between their last big trip and the next. Find a new city that’s a quick flight or drive away, and grab your spouse, a couple friends, or even just go solo to discover it. Check out new restaurants and bars, meet new people, and experience new things. Exploring the unknown is an excellent way to gain confidence by extending our boundaries further. By the end of the weekend, you’ll feel invigorated and encouraged to continue exploring new places.

Shorten Your Bucket List

We all have a bucket list. Even if you’ve never written it down, there are things that each of us hope to accomplish during our lives. You probably have at least one far-flung destination in mind that you want to see. No matter the “what” or “where” on your list, whether it be watching a sunrise over the ocean in Bali, or learning to cook Paella in Valencia, start planning now to make it happen. Strive to cross off at least one such experience, or to at least start working toward taking that trip. It will feel incredible transforming your dreams to reality.

Travel To Connect

Travel isn’t just about the places you see, it’s about the people with whom you spend time. If there are people you’ve been vowing to visit forever, but it just never seems to work out, make this the year it happens. You’ll get quality time to bond with friends or family while creating memories that will last a lifetime. Meeting new people while exploring the world is also one of the best reasons to travel. Nothing opens your eyes to the world quite like conversations with strangers, and it’s the new friends who always stick in our mind after the trip has ended.

Travel To Disconnect

This year, use travel as an opportunity to disconnect a bit from the online world. Give yourself, and your vacation, the attention they deserve. We can’t suggest that you go completely offline, because you’ll need the Internet for information and communication, but making yourself scarce on social media while on vacation lets you focus more on what and who is around you. Why not savour that fabulous meal instead of Instagramming it first? And your Facebook friends can certainly wait for your vacation pictures.

Be A Traveler, Not A Tourist

Live in the moment and embrace each new place that you visit to the fullest, and keep top of mind that travel is not a competition. When we get caught up in the numbers game of who’s been to the most places, we lose sight of what traveling is really all about. Slow down and take the extra time to absorb all that a new destination has to offer. Focus on having an experience rather than merely sightseeing. Attend events, festivals, or other activities. Try your hand at creating your own wine in France, fly fishing in New Zealand, or learning to surf in Hawaii. Get lost exploring off the beaten path, and never be afraid to stray from the guide books.

Our 2018 travel resolution list aims to inspire you to start dreaming about where and how you want to wander in the coming year. Expand your horizons to new experiences, sights, and cultures. Resist allowing fear to get in the way of exploring the unknown. Open yourself up to the invaluable life lessons that can only be learned through travel. Book your travel on Bonwi.com to make those travel dreams a reality.

Top Winter Villages

Do you become active and engaged during winter months, or do you prefer to hibernate? Do you like to shop, be outdoors, or cuddle by a fire? The small-town lifestyle of American villages offer a way to relax and do whatever you like at a slower pace. After all, what is better than a getaway that leaves all the hustle and bustle behind? We’ve handpicked a few winter wonderlands that have something for everyone, so lean back as we take you through them.

Nestled in the Rocky Mountains, Vail offers world-class skiing in a town that encompasses all the charm of a European alpine village. This city lives up to its reputation as a top entertainment and shopping destination. The slopes at Vail offer a wide range of terrain from kid-friendly to expert. Skiers with children love Vail because kids can attend a thorough ski school as they indulge on the resort’s diverse terrain. At day’s end, sip hot cocoa while walking the village’s cobblestone streets, perusing its wide selection of restaurants.

Berkshires, Massachusetts

The Berkshires’ winter is what inspired the picturesque romantic white Christmas scenes we see around the holidays. New England is full of dreamy small towns with classic red barns, open roads, great food, and friendly people. Look anywhere for scenery that appears right out of a painting. Make sure to stop by the Blantyre Hotel to see the 110-foot decorated Christmas tree. You can rent rooms with a traditional fireplace and four-poster beds. Step outside into the sparkling snow and enjoy a sleigh ride.

Cannon Beach is located on the beautiful coast of northern Oregon. It’s a city that remains calm and quaint in spite of its relatively close proximity to its neighboring city of Portland. You can find arguably the best coffee in the United States around any corner. Cooler weather during winter months make prices favorable to visitors. If you’re looking for a romantic getaway with a view, Cannon Beach should be at the top of your list. A stay at the Blue Gull Inn will have you situated right near the famous Haystack Rock.

This desert oasis takes on a new feel in the winter. There’s something magical about seeing Arizona’s fiery-red mountain tops dusted in sparkly snow. Winter is the best season to save on hotels and avoid crowds. Driving through the canyons, catching a hot-air balloon ride, or gazing at the unobstructed night sky are just a few of the many relaxing things to do here. Are you looking to get away for some peace and quiet? Sedona, Arizona is waiting for you.

Located at the foot of California’s Sierra Mountains, this popular ski village hosts visitors from around the world for some of the best winter sports west of the Rockies. Mammoth Mountain overlooks Lake Tahoe with a view of the surrounding Sierra peaks. Last year Mammoth Mountain had the longest ski season in California’s history, 270 days, getting 51 feet of snowfall at the basecamp. The skiing is great for all skill levels. There are three amazing lodges we recommend: Main Lodge, Canyon Lodge, and Eagle Lodge. Each are luxurious and cater to your every desire. Be sure to grab an après-ski beer at one of the village’s handful of micro-breweries.
