Perfect Beach Glow – Self Tanners vs. Bronzers

Everyone loves that perfect “sun kissed” glow when on vacation in Cabo.  However, doctors are constantly warning us that ultra violet rays cause wrinkles, and are extremely damaging to our skin.  As there are so many different lotions, potions, and powders, we thought we would share some benefits of Self Tanners and Bronzers.

Self Tanners are perfect if you want your color to last for a long period of time, and some brands can even last up to five days.  They are also essential if you wear light- color shades of clothing, as they are rubbed in, and tend to be more transfer resistant.  Lastly, If you want your entire body to be consistently the same shade, you will want to apply a self tanner.  Self Tanners range in prices anywhere from $9.00 at your local drug store to $42.00 at department stores on average.  Look for brands like Loreal, Lavera, Hawaiian Tropics, Jergens, and Clarins.

Bronzers allow you to customize your shade, as well as determine what intensity you may need.  They are also super simple to wash off, and take the worry out of streaking.  Ultimately, if you like the idea of instant gratification, by applying to a problem area that needs special attention, they fit the bill wonderfully.  Bronzers range in prices $12.00 to $37.00 on average.  Look for brands like Victoria Secret, Tarte, Estee Lauder, and Dr. Hauschka.

Travel Insurance – Who needs it?

In today’s economy, everyone is looking for the best price available for practically everything.  One common mistake that many of us make is NOT purchasing travel insurance.  So it brought up a really good question, when should we consider the purchase of travel insurance?

Below are a few reasons you MUST always contemplate purchasing the insurance:

*  Trips that are a long way off- You never know what may or may not change your plans

*  Expensive Trips – What if your plans change mid-range, and parts of the trip are non-refundable? 

*  Complex Plans – One leg of the trip, requires the other leg of the trip to get you to your destination.

*  Cruises – As they have already offered travel insurance, they are less than likely to work with you on changes.

*  Package Deals – Due to stipulations, your package may divert back to regular pricing. (Read the fine print)

 More examples of when insurance may need to be SKIPPED:

*  Last minute plans – Less likely to change, as you booked last minute.

*  Domestic Flights – Typically offer change fee’s that are reasonable. 

*  Short Vacations – Chances are that you are less likely to have to return home early, as the trip is short.

Bear in mind, there are so many different types of insurance when traveling, so you really have to find the right coverage for you – Some cover flights, hotel stays, your possessions, luggage, Golf,  adventures,  and  even your health.  Protecting your investment and the unexpected change, will allow for a worry free trip to any destination.

Cabo San Lucas Villas entertains guests from all over the world in our beautiful villas, and we can’t wait to assist you.  Please go to our website to view our inventory at www.cabosanlucusvillas.net.

I would like an upgrade, please – Car Rental Tips

Let’s face it, times are tough, and there are no more upgrades, unless you pay the piper.   Several years ago, if you batted your eye lashes, you may very well get that convertible you wanted to rent in the first place.

The tourism business is hurting, and incremental money makes a big difference so nothing is free anymore.  When I saw this article I had to share, as it may work out in your favor.

CNN Money and Amy Chen asked frequent travelers and people with upgrade-granting power for the secret to moving up in style without moving up in price.

At the Car Counter

What it’s worth. The upgrade from a compact to midsize car, via Hertz at the Los Angeles airport is worth $42 a week.

Your odds: One in 20. Many agencies cut fleets in 2008 and 2009, making upgrades less common.

How to Improve Them:

Choose the right car. If a company runs out of the vehicle class you reserved, it’ll likely upgrade you. Book a midsize car — it’s most in demand, says rental consultant Neil Abrams

Reserve at the right time. “Friday nights and Monday mornings are peak pickup times,” says L.A. Hertz agent Berry Ross. That means there’s less chance the car class you specify will be available.

Look for special offers on the agency’s site, on your credit card site, or on coupon pages like retailmenot.com. One example: a free upgrade at Alamo for compact to midsize cars until Dec. 31 (code: AU2729MJW).

Good luck getting that convertible!
