How To Be The World’s Smartest Traveler

I’m really excited to announce my next book project, How To Be The World’s Smartest Traveler: And Save Time, Money & Hassle. You can pre-order you copy online now.

I know what you’re thinking. No, I’m not claiming be the world’s smartest traveler.

I’ve been helping solve your vacation problems for more than a decade. But these cases didn’t slowly turn me into a travel genius. Instead, with each refund I secured and every botched reservation I helped fix, I learned what not to do when I’m on the road.

I have you, my readers, to thank for that education. I’m beyond grateful for it.

And now it’s time for a little payback.

In How To Be The World’s Smartest Traveler, I’ll show you:

How to save time. Whether you’re planning a honeymoon, or a business trip to close a deal, time is a finite and precious commodity. The travel industry sometimes likes to waste it by making you stand in line, wait on hold, or by sending you pointless form letters. I’ll show you my favorite shortcuts.

How to save money. Let’s face it, no one likes to spend more than they have to. I’ll tell you when you don’t need to shell out more — and when you should. I’ll also give you a heads-up on where the bargains can be found, and which ones are too good to be true.

How to prevent hassles. From onerous contracts, to come-ons by opportunistic timeshare salesmen, the last thing you want when you’re traveling is to be harassed. No worries. I can show you how to avoid these silly roadblocks.

How To Be The World’s Smartest Traveler will be published in early 2014 by National Geographic Books and its publishing partner Random House.

Thank you for your support. This book wouldn’t be possible without you.

Here’s how to pre-order the book.

  1. Not to shill for any particular vendor or anything, but the paperback book is available for pre-order on Amazon. (I’ve already pre-ordered.) I don’t see a Kindle version available there, but I’m sure that it’ll show up sometime between now and next March (2014).

  2. Chris, make sure there is an e-book version made available. I see that only the paperback will be sold. Smart travelers like to travel light!

  3. Hey Smartest Traveler, did you know that Paula Deen has a celebrity cruise?
    It is brought to you by a travel agency that arranges luxury land and sea travel for the most discriminating individuals and groups.

    Their own words, not mine 🙂

  4. I can tell you right now how to be the world’s smartest traveller. Don’t go anywhere that involves the TSA. They are the shame of America., Especially the TSA in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. I have travelled to many countries and nowhere have I been as annoyed as I’ve been with the TSA. I am seriously considering not going to the United States by air (unless absolutely necessary) until someone straightens them around. I was annoyed with them the last time I dealt with them and I’m even more annoyed now. If there is truly a democratic process in America, a very good way to prove it would be to get rid of the people in the TSA.

      1. Aside from forgetting to pack things back in their liquid tight bag, neglecting to reattach a strap around a bag and the seeming inability to relock the built in TSA compatible security, thereby rendering the combination lock inoperable, they also annoy people by chanting the obvious in a loud voice. I really don’t know what the purpose of holding your board pass up while walking – like a Nazi prison camp prisoner has to do with security. If anyone could read it, they are actually having you compromise the security of others seeing your name.
        I will be interested to know Chris’s recommendations regarding dealing with this poorly run agency.
        And Puck2U, you are correct, we’d be better off if most of them were unemployed.

  5. I can see a Kindle version now on Amazon, albeit more expensive than the paperback – why?
    Please where is the iBooks version though?

  6. I like the essence of your book. If ever I get my hands on it, I’ll surely read it. But for now, I’ll just scroll around your site.
