* Discuss any travel questions you have with
a DBT Corporate consultant.
* Keep an eye on our website’s www.dbt.com.au
& www.cruisescene.com.au for good deals, general information
about the company and our DBT “Off the Wing” & Cruisescene
“Crews News” newsletters.
* DBT Corporate and Cruisescene have many
videotapes and guidebooks on a number of destinations.
* We arrange pre-seating in planes. Tell
your consultant your preference and they will try to arrange
it. Window seats give you the luxury of something to lean
against in a long flight. Aisle seats mean you can get up
and exercise when you want without clambering over other
passengers and there is room to stretch your legs out. The
centre aisle seats mean at most only one person will need
to disturb you.
* Pre-book seats and request kid's meals
or special meals. Most major airlines have a wide variety
of meals available. The most common include: Hindu, Moslem,
Kosher, low sodium, diabetic, dairy-free vegetarian, lacto-ovo
vegetarian, raw vegetarian, gluten-free, low calorie, low
protein, low cholesterol, bland food and fruit platter.
* Pay for your European add-ons before you
leave Australia. Most tickets, accommodation, rental cars
etc are often cheaper if paid in Australian dollars and
in some cases (London travel passes) are only available
in this country. Pay by credit card and start accumulating
more frequent flyer points.
* You can buy a Great British Heritage Pass,
which gives you access to castles, gardens and historic
houses. Ask our consultants for a free pamphlet.
* Become a member of the Australian Council
of National Trust - your membership card gives you free
entry to 700 National Trust sites around Britain and more
than 200 Australian National Trust properties. Particularly
good value with a family membership $113 and $89 for an
Individual 12 months membership. Visit www.nationaltrust.org.au
* Don't Over Plan. Allow time to relax and
really enjoy yourself. Even if this is your once-in-a-lifetime
trip, don't feel you have to fill every available minute.
