Book your airport transfer
Whether you are a domestic or international traveller to the United States, a transfer is a great way to get from the airport to your destination. When you arrive in the United States, it doesn’t take long to realize that it is a car-dependent country; 95% of American households own a car. Public transportation infrastructure is often limited and roads can be very congested, difficult to navigate and quite discouraging for a visitor, which means that the easiest way to get where you need to be when you land in the United States is by airport transfer.
With regard to your mobile data
If you are going to the United States, do not make the usual mistake of using your mobile phone data in that country, unless you have a mobile package that allows it; as with travel to all international destinations, roaming rates on mobile phones are high. Make the most of free WiFi whenever possible, or check your mobile phone package to see if you can buy an international travel data set.
Be prepared to pay more than you think
What you see is not necessarily what you get in terms of prices in the United States; most prices are shown excluding tax. Therefore, the price labels you see do not include sales tax. Expect the till to pay more money. Tax rates vary by city and state. Therefore, prices depend on where you go. Assuming that an addition of 10% would be a safe and easy way to calculate. If you are staying at a resort, it is good to know that club fees will generally be charged to cover swimming pools, tennis courts, the Internet and other “surcharges”, which are additional costs compared to the advertised rate.
