Travelling by rented car  (1 Answer)

Hello,
We will be travelling in America this March, so we have decided to rent a car. We have heard that there are roads which require payments. 1. How can we pay these fees? Cash, credit card? Could rented car use sunpass and toll-by-plate? If yes, how to get it online? 2. What insurance car needs to have zero excess?
Thank you in advance :)

Road trip from Miami to the Keys  (2 Answers)

Hi everyone. Ive planned a 2 week trip from 25th March to 9th April, spending 4 nights in Miami at the start and then picking up a car to drive down to Key West and back over a week. Along the route I intend to visit the Everglades and stop in Islamorada/Marathon, Key West. Finishing in Miami for a couple of nights before heading back home. So... I need reassurance I have planned a reasonable itinerary and that I won't get lost driving and that being a single female alone won't be an issue! Aside from those concerns I would also love some idea of 'must do' things or areas to visit, especially for someone on their own. But I must warn you as much as I love water, getting in and doing water based activities is not my thing! I am looking forward to taking just relaxing and taking in the scenery and lapping up some much needed sun.

Things to do around Miami.  (3 Answers)

We are planning a week around Miami area from March 6-13th. We are a family of 2 adults and 2 kids, age 12 and 8. What are some the areas and places that we can do? We are flying into Fort Lauderdale and still have to book our return flight. We have West palm beach, Hollywood, Miami, South beach and Key West in mind. But need to figure out the order and how many days/nights to spend in each place and where to stay? And suggestions and feedback will be greatly appreciated. We are looking for kids friendly activities as well.

Areas to avoid?  (1 Answer)

Hey guys, I just watched a documentation about the tourist incidents in the 90s. Yes, probably I shouldnt do that ;) Yet...too late. And I have few questions:

1. Is there any areas one should really avoid? I read someting about Opa-Lack and Liberty.

2. We will arrive around 3 PM and would like to drive to Miami Beach right away with all our luggage and cameras. We just want to walk around there for an hour or so.

3. For dinner we want to go to the Antigua-Guatemala-Cafeteria close to Little Havanna. We would leave our suitcases in the trunk. Should be fine, right?

4. We booked a private B&B in Tamiami. From Google Street view it looks like a nice and safe area. Anyone disagrees?

I dont want to sound to whiny-whimsical...and I know things can happen anytime anywhere (been to Colombia and it was no big deal, but I had a friend who told me where NOT to go....so I am now asking you guys :)

Any support is appreciated!

Cheers,
Jen^^

Travel stop overs  (6 Answers)

Hi,

I'm planning a trip to America and it looks like the cheapest way is going Amsterdam to Miami with a change at Heathrow.

My question is I live in the uk so if on the return leg I choose to not get my connecting flight from Heathrow to Amsterdam, will I be able to collect my bags or will I be forced to get the flight to Amsterdam?

Miami - Istanbul nonstop flight with Turkish Airlines?  (4 Answers)

Just seen this: and got curious about Turkish Airlines.

I learnt that it is a member of Star Alliance and chosen as the best airline in Europe five times in a row! My friend in Boston used Turkish Airlines last summer and he recommended it so badly! He loved the food, staff and everything. I may plan my next holiday according to this new direct flight (because it is so cheap now) but wanted to hear your experiences first. What do you think?

Mountainbike rental in Miami.  (1 Answer)

I will be in miami for the next few days and would like to rent a mountainbike.
I have been gogling around and I'm not that happy what I found so far.
It seems to be mostly beach cruisers or other bikes where you are sitting upright on the bike, which I can't due to a back problem.
I would like to rent a high quality mountainbike for a few days if possible and if it dosen't cost an arm and a leg.
Anyone knows about places that rent out?
I'll be based in South Beach, but will be ready to travel to other parts of Miami if I can get what I am looking for.

Stay a night?  (4 Answers)

For Spring Break next year in March I will be flying into Miami, arriving at 2pm.

Transportation South Beach to Miami Seaquarium?  (3 Answers)

I will be staying in South Beach Miami next Friday and Saturday morning. Originally I was planning on just hanging out at the beach, Lincoln Road Mall, Ocean Drive, etc. but now I think a change of pace might be nice. I was doing some reading and I'm thinking about visiting Miami Seaquarium. I know there are some mixed reviews of the place, but I think it's mostly from people comparing it to SeaWorld and I haven't been anywhere like that before so I think I'll enjoy it. :)

The problem is it /is/ a little expensive at $42/ticket, so I'm only going to do it if there's a cheaper public transportation option I can take there. It looks like a cab ride would be $24-30 each way and I'd rather not make this a $100 excursion. Is there like a bus route or something I could take? If so, how much would it cost and how long would it take? Thanks in advance for any suggestions!

Hello

We are planning a trip to Florida through Miami at the end of this year. There are only 2 direct flights : Air France and American Airlines. The best schedule is AA (10:00 AM - 2:10 PM) .

Is somebody has a personal experience of the flghts AA62 and AA63 and of the comfort of the business class of the plane ( Boeing 777-300-200) ?

Thanks for the answer

Any general help and advice?  (2 Answers)

Hiya all, or should I say "y'all"? Actually that's not my question so I'll get to the point. I'm a little British guy from London arriving in Miami by Amtrak at 6:55pm on a Sunday evening. I have a flight to Nassau, Bahamas a day and a half later on Tuesday from MIA International Airport at 2:05pm so I'll be staying for 2 nights. I know I don't have time to see and do everything in a day but what highlights do you recommend and which neighbourhoods should I look at for hotel accommodation? I have a budget of about $160 per night. I know this question is very vague and I now know what people in the London and Heathrow forums feel like when faced with the myriad of possibilities to do in a huge city with not a lot of time.

I do apologise to the good people of Miami for not making it my primary destination but any advice and suggestions would be very welcome. I'm not a huge fan of just sitting on the beach but I do love art and bars with live music.
