Satellite images of hurricane Sandy

Hi,

As Hurricane Sandy prepares to hit New York you can see the full scale of its force via the following satellite images.

The new satellite views of Hurricane Sandy were snapped Sunday by the GOES-13 weather satellite and the powerful Suomi NPP Earth-watching satellite. Both satellites are used by NASA and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration to monitor Earth's weather.

The storm was expected to make landfall in Delaware and New Jersey on Monday night and cause substantial flooding and power outages, according to the National Hurricane Center.

Will there be a shortage of car hire in the USA this Christmas and New Year?

Hi everyone,

Just thought I would give a little heads up for those travelling to the USA this Christmas and New Year. I recently read a very interesting post by usrentacar who specialise in car hire USA.  This year all the early indications are pointing to a shortage of car rental availability in major locations like Florida, California and New York. Well, its either a shortage or a major price hike.

But generally speaking when prices rise its due to two things. 1) Lack of vehicles 2) increase in demand.

Well, even thought both reasons intrinsically affect the other here are a couple of reasons why usrentacar.co.uk think prices are set to rise;

  • Like everybody car rental suppliers are feeling the pinch, the second hand car market is bottoming out and the actually amount of vehicles on the road is down due to the knock on effects of the Tsunami.
  • Suppliers know Christmas will be busy, they also know that the U.S. domestic market will hire a huge amount of vehicles, more than they actually have.

For more details on this post please visit the usrentacar.co.uk blog

If you are travelling to the USA this Christmas and New Year the advise is to book early, especially if you need a specialist vehicle like a convertible, any SUV and any high occupancy vehicle like a 7, 8, 12 and 15 seater minivan.

You can book car hire in the USA with usrentacar.co.uk - please click the following link: car hire USA

As well as bargainn for car hire in the USA you can still get a great deal on your Florida Villa Rental as many of our private owners are offering great rates this coming Christmas and New Year holiday.

Let me know if you have any other Chrostmas and New Years tips,

Karl

1 toilet per aircraft! Read Ryanair’s latest cost cutting plans

Ryanair, the Budget airline that likes nothing better than thinking up new and cunning ways in which to cut costs, which incidentally, usually result in making your journey just a little bit more pants!

Officials from Europe’s biggest airline from want to remove two or three of its lavatories and replace them with up to six extra seats.

Under the plans up to 200 passengers and six crew would be forced to share bathroom facilities during a flight, leading to long queues, or worse, mid-air accidents. The company said ticket prices would fall by about £2 from a typical £40 ticket.

Michael O’Leary, the airline’s controversial chief executive, who is famous for his uncompromising approach to cost-cutting, defended the plans, saying all bathroom facilities were “very rarely” all used.

But critics said they were a “step too far” in its crude bid to cut costs and increase revenues. It is the latest cost-cutting measures announced by the airline.

But dont fear, there are still some genuine bargains out there that dont cut quality. Check out Bargain Villas for some great deals on cheap villa rental
