Beating the Budget ! with Delight

Beating the Budget 

Traveling in a budget airline is itself a task, in fact, a budget airline is in real term isn’t a budget airline at all, they practically charge you for everything. First pay for your ticket, then for your luggage, and to top that pay for the in-flight meals! When you add all these up then it is a bit unfair to call then a budget airline.

If you plan to travel in a budget airline then you should consider thinking about following 5 rules. 

Carry a single handbag!

Keep in mind that if you are planning to travel via a budget airline then make sure you have a single handbag. Budget airline do not offer you that much of leg room hence you don't want your luggage to be sitting where you would like to rest your legs.

Don’t Purchase in-flight food

Honestly, I have a rule for this if it is not included then don’t eat it. I say this because most of the budget airlines have pathetic food for which they like to charge you sky-high prices. you better have your meals at the airport restaurant, you won’t regret it!

Don’t forget to web-check-in 

It becomes bumpy if you are sitting near the tail of the plane hence make sure you grab yourself a front seat. if you are not planning to pre-book your seat by paying extra charges than make sure you web-check in as soon as possible (usually web-check-in starts 24-48 hrs prior to your departure).

Make arrangement for your entertainment 

You better carry your Laptop with some movies or videos or if you want to travel light then a mp3 player might come in handy because most of the budget airline don’t provide you with in-flight entertainment.

Say no to Formal 

Well this might sound impractical but the reality is if you plan to wear formals while traveling in a budget airline then rest assure that you will not be reaching your meeting, in the same way, you started from your port of departure, Its not that a normal airline would treat you better, but budget airlines have cramped up seats which just makes it worst. A solution could be to carry an extra shirt with you and hand over your coat to the flight attendant.

Sometimes even frequent flyers forget to consider these small things and have a tough time during their journey, at explorer’s edition we will try to keep you informed about any and every fact that may affect your travels!  Thanks and Have a great day ahead! Cheers

Amazing Dubai

Amazing Dubai 

Amazing Dubai is a part of The United Arab Emirates and it a vacation hotspot for any type of traveller.  Dubai was built on a desert and today it is the part of an elite club of most modern cities in the world.  

Dubai is famous for Luxury shopping, Ultra-modern architecture and a die for Nightlife, having said that Dubai has very well preserved its rich cultural beauty. Dubai has been the talk of the town because of having built the world’s tallest building and the job has been done so well that the building “Burj Khalifa” is just not the tallest but one of the most beautiful building to admire once you have a glance at it. 
I have alway been fascinated about Dubai because of the simplicity it has to offer but yet so modern. Dubai is the only place where you will find a seven-star hotel Burj Al Arab, An artificial archipelago of various small Island constructed in the shape of the world map.

A person planning to travel to Dubai need not worry about anything, Dubai has a …

Sikkim The state of Himalaya

Sikkim is a delight to travel. An Indian State surrounded by the great Himalayan mountains. The scenic beauty is heavenly. Recently I had an opportunity to travel to Gangtok, the capital city of Sikkim. The city is built in the heart of the Mountain ranges so don’t be afraid to climb and to decent a lot during the day, it is like hiking whenever you step out of the hotel.

Gangtok is a place where you can go and enjoy the weather, meditate and inhale all the scenic beauty or if you love some action then there is a lot of adventure sports you can check out but if you plan to shop then probably it is not the best destination. There is only one road which has been converted into a walking plaza, it is called as mall road, where you will find many restaurant and shops of different kinds ranging from international brands to local merchandise shops. 
Reaching Gangtok is a 4 hrs drive from Darjeeling or 4 hrs drive from the nearest airport which is situated at Bagdogra, but rest assure that you…
