WEEK SARAH BRING IT ON KELLYANNE. THANK YOU. WELL INFLATION INFLATION SO FAR IS NOT CANCELED FUN. SUMMER, BUT IT IS TAKING A BITE OUT OF VACATION BUDGETS. THERE ARE A FEW WAYS TO SAVE A FEW DOLLARS ON YOUR NEXT SUMMER VACATION AND WE WANT TO HEAR ALL ABOUT THAT JOINING US NOW IS MARK SHIELD DROP PUBLIC AFFAIRS SPECIALIST WITH TRIPLE A NORTHEAST. GOOD MORNING, MARK. I KNOW THE GAS FOR HAVGIN ME. HI, GOOD MORNING. I KNOW GAS PRICES APPEAR TO BE HOLDING STEADY AVERAGING IN THE RANGE OF FIVE DOLLARS ANY TIPS TO HELP US SHAVE OFF SOME OF THOSE EXTRA COSTS. YEAH, SO THERE’S A LOT OF WAYS TO TRY TO SAVE SOME MONEY ON GAS. THESE PRICES ARE HIGH THE GOOD NEWS. IS THIS SEEMS LIKE THEY’RE STARTING TO EASE A LITETL BIT. WE RECOMMEND PEOPLE TO TAKE A COUPLE STEPS TO CHANGE YOUR DRIVING BEHAORVI. ONE THING YOU CAN DO IS REALLY EASE UP ON THAT GAS PEDAL IF YOU DRIVE CLOSER TO THE SPEED LIMIT YOU’RE GONNA SAVE A LOT MORE THAN SOMEBODY WHO’S MAYBE IN PASSING LANE ALL THE TIME TRYING TO GET AHEAD OF EVERYBODY ELSE. SO THAT’S ONE THING ALSO MAKE SURE YOUR CAR IS IN GOOD OPERATING CONDITION. CHECK THE BATTERIES. MAKE SURE YOUR TIRE PRESSURES ARE ALL SET AND THEN LOOK OUT THERE FOR A GOOD SAVINGS. THERE ARE ALL SORTS OF SAVINGS PROGRAMS. THERE’S APPS YOU CAN USE AND EVEN JOINING A WHOLESALE CLUB OFTEN CAN GET YOU SIGNIFICANT SAVINGS ON A FILL UP. ASO LOT OF FOLKS ARE REALLY TRYING TO BE STRATEGIC ABOUT BUYING GASOLINE AND IT’S RELYAL EFFECTIVE IF YOU SPEND SOME TIME THINKING AHEAD AND PLANNING AHEAD TO MAKE SURE THAT YOU FIND THE CHEAPEST STATION. YOU CAN AND STACK ON ANY SAVINGS YOU CAN USING A CREDIT CARD OR A REWARDS PROGRAM. SITUATION RIGHT NOW WITH RENTAL CARS BECAUSE LAST YEAR WE SAW ETH PRICES WERE VERY HIGH EVEN IF YOU IF YOU COULD ACTUALLY FIND A RENLTA CAR. IS THAT HAPPENING AGAIN NOW? SO THE SITUATION HAS IMPRODVE SIGNIFICANTLY IN FACT RENTAL CAR PRICES ARE DOWN ABOUT 35% NATIONALLY. SOOU Y MIGHT SEE HIGHER PRICES IN SOME HOT SPOTS, BUT GENERALLY IT’S A LOT BETTER. SO YOU’RE GONNA HAVE AN EASIER TIME GETTING A RENTAL CAR THAN YOU DID LAST YEAR RENTAL CAR COMPANIES. WE’RE FACING THE SAME PROBLEM MANY CONSUMERS ARE FACING TRYING TO GET NEW CARS OVER THE PAST COUPLE YEARS BECAUSE OF ALL THE COVID AND SUPPLY ISSUES THAT WE SAW SO NOW IS ACTUALLY A MUCH BETTER TIMEO T GET A RENTAL CAR. YOU’RE STILL GOING TO WANT TO PLAN AHEAD THOUGH ANDRY T TO BOOK THATAR C AS EARLY AS POSSIBLE IF YOU THE AIRPORT AND YOU PLAN ON BOOKING AT THE KIOSK THERE. YOU MIGHT RUN INTO SOME PROBLEMS. SO IF YOU’RE WORKING WITH A TRAVEL AGENTET G THAT CAR BOOKED AHEAD OF TIME AND MAYBE LOOK FOR A LOCATION AWAY FROM THE AIRPORT, EVEN IF YOU LAND AND SAY YOU NEED TO GET TO THAT PLACE. THAT’S A FEW MILES AWAY FROM THE AIRPORT FOR THE BETTER DEAL A LOT OF TIMES THEY HAVE PICKUP SERVICE. SO THEY’LL STILL BRING YOU TO THEIR LOCATION TO GET YOU IN THAT CAR. WELL, THAT’S A GOODIP T AND WE KNOW AIR TRAVELS REBOUNDING. BUT THE LINES APPEAR TO BE HAVING TROUBLE KEEPING UP ANY TIPS TO HELP NAVIGATE WHEN THERE’S SO MANY DELAYS AND CANCELLATIONS. A REALLY PILING UP ABSOLUTELY. NOBODY WANTS TO BE STRAINER IN AN AIRPORT. SO THE FIRST THING IS MAKE SEUR YOU’VE DOWNLOADED YOUR AIRLINES APP OR GOO T THEIR WEBSITE AND GNSI UP FOR TEXT AND ALERTS RIGHT AWAY. SO IF YOU DO ENCOUNT AER CANCELLATION OR SOME ISSUE YOU’LL KNOW AS SOON AS POSSIBLE SECONDLY, MAKE SURE TO CHECK IN AT LEAST 24 HOURS BEFORE YOUR FLIGHT, YOU KNOW, A LOT OF TRIPLE A MEMBERS THEY JOIN BECAUSE THEY GET THAT TRAVEL AGENT SERVICE IF YOU CAN GET A TRAVEL AGENT, THERE’S NOTHING BETTER THAN BEING ABLE TO CALL THEM WHEN YOU’RE AT THE AIRPORT WITH A PROBLEM AND THEY CAN MAKE THOSE. CALLS AND FIND YOU THAT FLIGHT BOOKING. WELL YOU MANAGE YOURSELF AT THE AIRPORT. IT TAKES A LOT OFF YOUR MIND THE OTHER THINGO T CONSIDER IS TRIP INSURANCE A TRAVEL AGENT CAN HELP YOU FIND TRIP INSURANCE. IT MAY REQUIRE A LITTLE BIT OF SPENDING TO GET THAT INSURANCE, BUT IT WILL REALLY MAKE A HUGE DIFFERENCE IF YOU HAVE TO MAKE ADJUSTMENTS STAY IN A HOTEL OR SPEND EXTRA DOLLARS THAT WEREN’T IN YOUR BUDGET TO DLEA WITH THE FACT THAT YOU’RE STUCK AT THE AIRPORT CABEUSE OF A CANCELLATION. SPOTS FOR VACATIONS THIS SUMMER AN D ARE THERE ANY DEALS? YEAHSO, SOME DEALS AFAIRRE IS UP A LITTLE BIT THIS YEAR, BUT YOU CAN STILL FIND REASONABLE DEALS IN THE US PEOPLE. VELO GOING TO ORLANDO, FLORIDA, SEATTLE, NEW YORK CITY, CALIFORNIA, ALASKA REMAINED POPULAR DESTINATIONS INTERNATIONALLY PEOPLE ARE INTERESTED IN CANADA. FRANCE PARIS, LONDON, ENGLAND, IRELAND ROMAN. ITALY REMAINS POPULAR IN THE BAHAMAS IN MEXOIC THOSE WARM WEATHER DESTINATIONS. SOUNDS GOOD TO ME. OKAY. THANK YOU MARK SHIELD DROP PUBLIC AFFAIRS SPECIALIST FOR TRIPLE A NOR THANKS FOR JOINING US.
