A Bit More

Wednesday, September 27, 2006


This is pretty important. Travel restrictions are changing constantly these days. It’s almost impossible to keep up as our government tries to ease restrictions without compromising security—a difficult thing at best in a country where there are several thousand planes—yes, that’s right—in the air at any one time.

The best thing to do before you begin to pack is check with Travel Security Administration (TSA). You'll get the latest info on what you are allowed to pack as well as how things should be packed. Bookmark this site in order to keep up to date. If you’re traveling internationally, also check the U.S. Department of State for passport and Visa requirements, travel warnings and suggestions (and mind them), and other information that may pertain to you. Dates for new passport requirements have been changed several times, and knowing when they go into effect is something that begs checking. Bookmark this site as well. Changes occur and it is best to be prepared.

If you’re taking a driving trip, an important site to consider is the Federal Highway Administration’s site where you can get road closure, traffic updates, weather conditions and other important information that might enable you to ease on down the road a bit more comfortably. Look at the map, click on the state, and you’re good to go.

And, of course, consider TATravel for your travel planning. Bookmark this site as well or simply come back to Third Age Traveler and click the link on your left.
