Global Gentry: 50 Best Practices for the Refined and Well-Traveled – The Street

Nobody loves the penance of traveling, but you can make it go faster. Paul Theroux said, travel is only glamorous in retrospect.

1/ Never stay in a hotel for more than three days – even if you’re in the same city you should jump around — variety is the spice.

2/ If something bad happens to you with an airline – accept it. The information counter, the long hold time and the online form are a long dark hallway with a dead end.

3/ Double the valet fee and ask the driver to leave your car out front, as with all service people – introduce yourself, tell them stories, ask them about their lives and families. Getting the “welcome back” and extra service is always worth it.
