Welcome to Travel Koncierge Tips
What is Travel Koncierge?
Travel Koncierge is an offshoot of Kiddie Koncierge.
We love to travel and drag our son along. Truth be
told, travel with a minor can be less than thrilling
unless you come prepared. The editors at Kiddie
Koncierge have compiled a growing list of family and
kid-oriented destination guides to some of our
favorite cities to make your family travel that much
We have also learned a few lessons on travelling
with minors over the years that might be helpful to our
readers. We will be updating these tips periodically,
so check back. We also welcome your suggestions!

We have found the following to be extremely helpful in
our travel planning recently:
- www.kayak.com - This site aggregates every
published airfare from the airlines plus Orbitz,
Expedia, etc. It is a huge time saver.
- www.Costcotravel.com - Costco Travel is a
great way to save money on a weekly car
rental. It is a bit cumbersome to wade
through all the offers, but you will save a LOT
- www.seatguru.com - After doing a red-eye to
New York with a seat that did not recline, I
have to say that this site is a MUST. It also
came in handy when we had to switch
airplanes or airlines midstream and find new
seats. What this site does is provide you with
the seating plans for all aircraft with all
airlines with handy notations on which seats
are exit rows, which seats are near the exits
(good for leg room, but bad for raising arm
rests, underseat storage or tray tables - they
usually fold into the armrest), which seats do
not recline (last row before a bulkhead, last
row before exit rows), which seats have power
outlets, etc. We have this loaded on our cell
phone as well for obvious reasons.
- Orbitz nowadays has a low price guarantee
whereby they will refund you the difference if
anyone buys your itinerary for less than you
- If you are travelling to SoCal or anywhere in a
four hundred mile radius, consider driving. By
the time you drive or get a cab/shuttle/limo to
the airport, park, unload, check in, go through
security, wait, get delayed, etc., you may find
that you actually save time by driving. Add to
that that you have a car seat, don't have to
deal with a rental, etc. If you have a bike rack,
you can even bring the bikes. Just make sure
that you have a lock for it.
- Don't forget the AAA discount! You pay those
dues for a reason!
