Car Insurance Guide for the US state of Nevada

By Teri Harvey

Sorting out your auto insurance is an expensive, but necessary, annual expense for most of us.

Many of us that decide to take out that cheap car insurance option will, in the event of making a claim, feel let down by the insurance company somewhat. If you have you ever had to make a claim against your insurance then you may agree with what I'm saying - I bet some of you will have had to chase the insurance company to get things sorted out, alot of you will maybe have had a game of tug-of-war with the insurer about the costs of the claim, and I would risk a fair stack of chips (we are in Las Vegas after all!) on most having found it stressful.

In its annual report of 2008, The National Association of Insurance Commissioners report revealed that the average premium per vehicle in Nevada state was $1,137 annually, whilst passenger car insurance for the remaining states was significantly less at only $937 per vehicle.

Since car insurance is more expensive for those of us who happen to live in Las Vegas or somewhere else in Nevada, we need to make sure we get a good deal for our money.

To get yourself a decent policy and also to get a good deal for their money, you must take care and purchase an auto insurance policy that makes sense and value for you. A good policy is one that both meets your minimum liability as a road user and also provides other levels of cover that you require without quibbles or problems from the insurance company should you need to make a claim.

Bodily injury and property damage cover can be purchased as what is known as split-limit cover or combined single-limit cover. If you choose to pay for a combined single limit, then the figures for property damage and bodily injury are combined ie. $40,000 is the minimum (required under Nevada law) combined single limit for all property damage and bodily injury.

Comprehensive and collision cover are not strictly required by law in Las Vegas, under Nevada law but you may find that it is offered to you by your insurer. It is also not available in some cases where the condition of the vehicle or the age of the driver would prohibit the costs required ie. the person is of minimum age or the vehicle is almost worthless

You are not required to carry medical payments or uninsured/under-insured motorist cover, but all insurance companies are required by law to offer you medical payments cover of at least $1000 and uninsured/under-insured motorist cover at an amount equal to your bodily injury cover.

If you are planning on a car lease in Las Vegas or elsewhere in Nevada, then we would advise you to check your lease agreement carefully since they commonly require that you have a liability cover of $100,000 per person, $300,000 per accident and possibly a damage cover over the lower limit of $10,000. These are minimum auto insurance requirements for Las Vegas and the state of Nevada as a whole. - 30230

Las Vegas Child Custody Lawyer

By Stephen Daniels

Child custody cases are difficult, expensive and emotional, both for clients and their lawyers. Child custody lawyers should be experienced enough, compassionate enough, and tough enough to either negotiate or litigate the easiest as well as the most complex in contentious custody cases that are pursued in Las Vegas, Nevada. Mullins Law Firm for over twenty (20) years has proven it can efficiently and aggressively handle these complex cases on behalf of their clients.

Child custody law in Nevada has undergone dramatic changes as a result of legislative and Nevada Supreme Court decisions.

* There is no longer a tender years doctrine. Mothers are no longer automatically preferred custodians, but have to prove their fitness just as fathers do.

* Nevada law has changed to favor joint legal and joint physical custody arrangements between parents, where the parents have an equal role in child rearing after divorce or separation.

* Non-custodial parents no longer have to settle for a simple every other weekend schedule. Parents are being required to alternate weeks, or divide the weeks equally, unless they can prove why joint physical custody is not in the best interest of their children.

* Las Vegas Child Custody lawyers have to be sharp enough to quickly analyze the given facts to advise their clients about whether to settle for joint physical custody or fight for primary custody. A recent Supreme Court decision has determined a parent having 40% of custody time qualifies as a joint physical custodian.

* Based upon the decision between primary custody and joint physical custody, parents have to deal with changing legal standards. And their decision impacts the amount child support, relocation issues, where the child attends school, tax deductions and other important parenting issues.

* Parents no longer have to have "equal time" to be considered joint physical custodians.

* Complex factors have to be presented to the Court to facilitate a wise decision to serve the best interest of the children, while not destroying the family.

For instance the "best interests of the child" standard is still the paramount consideration of the Court in Las Vegas Child Custody cases; but sometimes the best interests of the child conflict with a parent's best interests. If the parents share legal and physical custody jointly, there is still child support to be paid by the parent who earns more than the other. The relocation to another state standards change based upon whether the parents share joint physical custody or whether the moving party has primary physical custody. In Potter v. Potter the Nevada Supreme Court decided to make it extremely difficult for a joint physical custodian to relocate to another state without parental consent. With primary physical custody, a parent can more easily relocate.

Custody lawyers need to know how to advise clients and present custody cases to the Court to help their clients prevail. They should know the nuances in the law, and the individual preferences of the judges on how cases should be handled and presented. Joint physical custody is easier to get, but it impacts child support and even school issues. Parents sharing physical custody who do not live in the same area of Las Vegas often cannot decide which school the child should attend.

The Nevada Supreme Court in the Rivero v. Rivero decision has further complicated the distinctions drawn between primary and joint physical custodians. Child custody lawyers unfamiliar with the nuances of these recent changes in the law can make litigating a family court case difficult for all parties involved. At Mullins Law Firm we emphasize making sure our clients are informed, and that our cases are prepared, so as to ensure the best chances of serving the children's best interests, be it through settlement or litigation. - 30230

Finding The Best Carpet Cleaning Company

By Joanne Anderson

Many Carpet Cleaning companies have natural products and equipment that provide excellent cleaning results. These companies are often the first choice for individuals who are concerned about the impact of chemicals on the environment.

The companies that use non-toxic products and equipment that does not have a negative impact on the environment are considered eco-friendly. The companies work very hard to ensure that their provide the required services and quality without creating damage to the members of a household or the environment.

Until the past few years many of the chemical that were used for Carpet Cleaning were very toxic and produced severe reactions in individuals who had a sensitivity to these chemicals. The threads of a carpet were worn more quickly when these chemicals were used regularly on them as well.

People suffering from auto-immune deficiencies often have very severe reactions to many chemicals used to clean carpets. As the incidence of auto-immune deficiency has risen throughout the world many Carpet Cleaning companies have begun to invest in products and equipment that is less toxic yet provides the same quality of cleanliness that the harsher chemicals do.

Using biological products instead of chemical based products allows Carpet Cleaning companies to provide the same high level of service to their customers without taking the risk of causing illness to a homes inhabitants. Biological cleaners do not cause damage to the carpets that the more harsh chemicals do.

Using products that are environmentally friendly allows Carpet Cleaning companies the ability to service a diverse population that may not have been able to use their services before. These products can include orange extracts and other plant combinations that leave a carpet clean and smelling fresh.

In a busy home there are often spills that take place on a carpet in between Carpet Cleaning. In order to address these small spills and avoid severe staining of the carpet fabric there are many natural products that can be used that will be effective.

When individuals choose natural methods to spot clean carpets they usually find that they already have the necessary ingredients on hand. For wine stains on a carpet, blotting the area from the outer rim inwards with club soda will remove most of the stain. By following this with a mild detergent and water solution the stain can be removed.

Removing pet odor and stains can often be difficult because they are discovered after the accident has occurred. By using a solution of white vinegar and water and blotting these stains and the odor is removed. When the stain has had time to set by including baking soda the stain can be further eliminated.

Pouring salt on a wet spot on a carpet will cause the liquid to be absorbed in the salt and, after drying, the salt can be vacuumed up. If there is a residual stain left one can use the vinegar and water solution to blot the area and remove any staining that has been left.

For stubborn stains one is often tempted to scrub a carpet with detergent. However scrubbing or rubbing a stain on a carpet can embed the stain in the fibers of the carpet and make it very difficult to remove. It is very important that for stubborn stains one blot the area from the outer edge of the stain to the center and not rub the area.

In some instances it will be necessary to have a Carpet Cleaning company come and do an early cleaning of the home carpet. The company will have more products and equipment available to remove tough stains and in some cases this is the only alternative for stains that resist removal using regular home products. - 30230

Las Vegas Shows and Life Style

By Andy Cotter

Anyone who goes to Las Vegas will be amazed at the number of shows on and off the strip. It seems that almost every hotel has some sort of show, many of them with big name stars. The shows in Vegas are one of the calling cards of this city that boasts of being the most fabulous city in the world.

There are a lot of different choices of shows as you would expect and a wide variety of prices as well. The big name entertainers will cost you the most to see while the lesser-known acts are more reasonable. You have everything to choose from including magicians, hypnotists, singers, comedians and much more.

Some of the high end shows are quite breathtaking and productions of this magnitude can only be seen in a place like Las Vegas. For instance, the Blue Man Group does put on shows from time to time in other cities but nothing can compare to the show they put on at their home stage in Vegas. Everything is bigger and better in Vegas and the shows are no different.

The ultimate in Las Vegas entertainment is the Cirque du Soleil. Its an experience of a lifetime that will leave you in awe of the performers ability to take you into their world and temporarily be part of it. Walking into the theatre alone is an experience you will never forget. If you want light entertainment, there are several comedy shows that can tickle your fancy. You can choose from a number of veteran stand-up comics or you can go to several clubs that host improvisation comedy.

What Shows Are Good in Las Vegas

By Chris Linch

Cirque du Soleil's Mystere show is like being awake during one of your most bizarre and with wonderful dreams, and it's my favorite show..

It begins with some classic entertainment. Two clowns come out and play tricks on each other before the audience. The show starts off with a very light hearted note and helps to pass the time and while the audience is being seated, and if either of these jokers tries to direct you to your seat, hold on your tickets or it may remember where you are actually seated for they will take you on a wild goose chase.

The real magic and the show starts. The music so beautiful and haunting that you will be absolutely mesmerized, and there are acrobats and bicyclists also. There is always something to see, which would be interesting and no matter in which direction you look. You can also see athletic skill unlike anything you have ever experienced and the sets and costumes are breath-taking and beautiful.

Sometimes the whole thing seems like some surreal dream or like that you have just stepped into the mind of Salvadore Dali. There are graceful ballerinas, gigantic Snails, dashing heroes and total buffoons. Half of the time you will be mesmerized and the other half you will be laughing yourself silly, as the clowns distract you from the ever changing scene changes that happen right in front of your eyes.

Make this one of your first. If you have never seen a Cirque du Soleil show before. If you have seen the others, this one is still worth going to. It is not the Beatlemania of Love but instead it seems to be the perfect cameo of what a Cirque show men. I love this show because, it is still a big production, and has a wonderful sense. It is like that if you are being privy to a private show into a magical world.

All of the Cirque shows, this could be the most appropriate if you bring your children, also. The mystical quality is one that it will enchant them and yet it's not a "kids show." Their performances are all of the top quality and the experiences is the one that can be definitely be appreciated by all. - 30230

The Story Of My Trip To Vegas

By Chris Linch

Las Vegas was one city that I had always longed to visit and we finally managed to get there in the early months of this year after almost a decade and a half. We were really floored by the grandeur of the city.I must say that Las Vegas is city worth visiting and if you have not been there, a tour of this city is a must.

We had gone to Las Vegas during the Great Recession period and so am not really very certain that we got to see this city in its actual appearance. There were not many shops opened in most of the hotels and even the ones which were open had very few customers. We got our room for a good bargain and resided at Mandalay Bay which was a bit away from the city.

The conveyance to the Pyramid Hotel and Excalibur is extremely simple and helps you to get to New York speedily. I really enjoyed every hotel I visited. The shops,restaurants,shows and gambling dens were all resplendent. Being a non smoker I detested all the smokiness and was quite suffocating. I expected more air circulation in these places.

Our visit to the out skirts of the city began with a tour to the Hoover Dam. The sight seeing of this dam took up so much of our time that all our plans of visiting the Grand Canyon went completely hay wire.One thing that I have decided is that if we come to Las Vegas on another visit ,I will ensure that I have one more day to conduct a tour of the Grand Canyon.

We enjoyed window shopping which we did more than actually buying things. Quite frankly it would have been no big task to spend a lot of money on the goods for sale. There were many shops that stocked wares that cost twenty thousand dollars or more. But what really caught our fancy was the movie blogs with bona fide signatures of actors. I nearly purchased a poster of this sort but changed my mind as i felt that I could use that money for some thing else. - 30230

How To Get Discount Air Fare To Las Vegas

By Chris Linch

We can find many options where we can try searching for discounted airfares to Las Vegas. It is not prudent to come up with several thousands of these type of options. Instead, it is best to start searching online with sites that we are familiar with. Simply put - try entering the key words discount airfare: Las Vegas and there is no doubt that you will end up getting a list of thousands of websites on your search engine.

Depending on your familiarity with these travel sites, you will come across the sites that often have the best deals in the middle of the week rather than having some deals on the weekends. Additionally, these sites may also provide additional services. Its a well known fact now, that if you combine everything in a package, it turns out to be a cheaper deal. A typical example is mixing airfare with hotels and car rental offers. Moreover, if you are lucky to be a couple then some sites and travel agents will be more than happy to give you some more additional discounts.

It is best to decide well in advance about our possible travel dates. Generally, the best deals tend to be available during the weekdays of Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday because of the lesser traffic. We might also find excellent deals on certain sites that offer great deals for a particular day of a week. A great place that one can rely online is lastminutetraveldeals.com which can help us with good deals if we have to travel without adequate preparation time.

A good traveler will most likely start his/her search at least a few months in advance to get the best possible deals. Generally what happens is, the closer you get to the exact traveling date the costlier it becomes. Moreover, because the rooms and flight availability is less, these travel agencies tend to charge higher for the same options which were earlier available in a cheaper deal.

In addition to finding the best possible discount airfare deals on the various websites online, it makes sense to give a shot to our local newspapers as well. There are select travel agents and companies who tent to offer a good deal for local newspaper readers as well. These deals can be as low as $169 per person for hotel and airfare combined.

The next step after getting an excellent deal for your Las Vegas trip is to invest some money in getting the right kind of travel insurance. This is particularly true if you are booking in advance. This kind of insurance can be a big help if we end up having problems just minutes before the flight. That ways, we won't be losing any money. We might also want to consider the hidden costs which are not readily seen on the travel websites. These can be in terms of taxes, service charges, etc. - 30230

Rent The Car Of Your Dreams in Las Vegas

By Chris Linch

Once you have decided to jazz up your Las Vegas trip by renting an exotic sports car, you have to decide what to do to make this happen. You really want to drive one of these sporty models but they seem to be too expensive for your budget. Don't worry, take some time to check out different rental agencies and soon you will be driving your dream car without going broke.

While you are making your hotel reservations, check out the hotel's offer regarding car rentals. Everyone wants to go to Las Vegas since it is such a popular fun spot, so there are a lot of deals available. From cheap flights, hotel rooms and VIP club registrations, a quick Google search will provide you with a lot of offers. The same holds true for car rentals. Be careful in making your decision and you can spend the money you save on the car rental at the casino.

You can find websites, such as Expedia, on the Internet that will help you find the deal you need. If you are looking for something extraordinary, you won't find it cheaply. You should be thinking of spending something close to $900. Package deals, available in a variety of themes (executive, wedding...), are generally cheaper. Sometimes the deal is better over a longer time, so find out if it is beneficial to add an extra day. When you are researching your options ask all the questions you need. Know your budget and stick to it. Tell your travel agent this amount at the beginning so s/he can work within it. As long as you are realistic, not expecting something like a Bentley for $200, you can get the vacation you want at the price you want to pay.

If you chat up your dealer you might be able to get the price dropped by a few dollars, but not by a lot. Charm is important but in the end, the bottom line is what is important. Tell you dealer why you are in Vegas. The dealer ultimately wants you to rent from them. The better they know you and the more they like you, the more willing they are to work with you. Business people love to haggle. In the end, business people know that a happy customer is a return customer and will tell their friends good stuff about the business.

You will enjoy your holiday, driving an exotic car,knowing you got a great deal and saved money. Driving a hot car, the one you wanted, and still having money to spend will make your Vegas holiday so much more fun. Imagine driving a Lamborghini or a Ferrari on the streets of Las Vega knowing you got a great deal on the rental. There is no reason to spend money if you don't need to. Your holiday is your reward for working hard and you deserve to drive the vehicle of your choice. - 30230

What To See When You Travel To Washington DC

By Chris Linch

Nowhere else in the United States is American history so easy to experience as in Washington D.C. For example, just a short walk from the Washington Monument, you can visit (and stay in!) the same hotel that Martin Luther King Jr. did before giving his "I Have a Dream" speech shortly before the March on Washington in 1963.

Each hotel you can choose from has a special opportunity that comes along with it. For example, the Willard Intercontinental of the Hay-Adams offers clear, beautiful views of the White House. The Downtown and Capitol Hill hotels, on the other hand, are just a short walk from the National Mall. Each of these hotels are booked by world leaders and diplomats during their visits to the U.S., and are also just a short distance from the Smithsonian, the Washington Monument, the Library of Congress, and many other monuments, museums, and attractions.

The Mandarin Oriental Hotel specifically is near the Jefferson Memorial, though a bit farther from downtown. On the other hand, you can stay close to the night life by booking a room in any of the hotels in Dupont Circle.

These beautiful hotels are certainly one of a kind, but there are also budget-friendly options all over the city. You can find some of the most economical hotels and motels in the Washington D.C. on Connecticut Avenue, which is near the zoo and the National Cathedral. These accommodations are also very close to shopping and dining.

While many hotels in the downtown area are a bit more expensive, it's a good idea to consider how much driving you'll need to do from a hotel outside the downtown area. Although less expensive to reserve, you'll need to drive from these hotels and park, which can be expensive. Think carefully first about the sites you want to see the most, and find a hotel near those places, so that parking fees are less of a worry.

To save money on your trip to Washington D.C., keep an eye out for package deals and online discounts to help reduce the price of your hotel. Although in many locations you can save quite a bit of money by traveling in the off-season, D.C. doesn't have a regular off-season, and hotel prices are the same all year. Do bear in mind, however, that as with most destinations, summer is somewhat busier. - 30230

What Is A Boutique Hotel

By Chris Linch

Boutique hotels began to appear in the UK and the USA in the early 1980s. Small (between six and fifty rooms) and independent, they were an alternative to big chains in cities like London, New York, and San Francisco. More recently, some chains have capitalized on the success of this model by operating smaller properties they market as boutique hotels.

Many boutique hotels are very luxurious. One of the luxuries they offer is highly personalized service. For one thing, with their higher staff-to-guest ratios compared with chain hotels, staff can be expected to remember your name, where you're from, and the purpose of your trip. In this more intimate "home from home" atmosphere, the traveler looking for something different, or even somewhat eccentric, will also enjoy highly personalized service.

The owners are usually your hosts in boutique hotels. Their goal is to be attentive to your needs and yet respectful of your privacy. They want you to feel at home, but exceptionally pampered. It is not always easy to achieve this in a hotel, and success depends on good design and use of space as well as the highest standards of service.

The public spaces of a hotel are important because they convey the hotel's character. All hotels endeavor to make their guests feel at home, and even large hotels underscore that aim in their public spaces. Creating a comfortable, homelike atmosphere may seem easier in a boutique hotel, but smallness calls for creativity in making the space functional as well as cozy.

The public areas in a boutique hotel should be arranged so that guests can enjoy individual space if they wish, yet without sacrificing the intimate, friendly atmosphere. The furniture should be comfortable enough to encourage guests to relax, with variations in lightening to accommodate different needs and functions. Boutique hotels tend to be less formal, and the design should emphasize the freer, more relaxed ambiance.

In a large hotel, one room is much like another. Sometimes the basic elements are identical throughout the chain: the bed, the closet, the bedside tables, and the en suite bath. It's the details that make a house a home, and the same is true of a boutique hotel. Your room might have unique antique furniture and high-quality linens and drapes. It might have a flat screen TV and internet access. The bathroom might have a custom design. Whatever the features, your room will not be quite like any other room in the hotel. - 30230

Best Ideas for a Las Vegas Vacation

By Chris Linch

What do you think of when you imagine Las Vegas? The city conjures up different images for different people. Some people know Las Vegas better as Sin City, picturing debauchery, drinking and gambling all night long. Others consider a trip to Las Vegas the perfect family vacation. Tourism in Las Vegas hit an all-time high in the late 60s and early 70s, when it was marketed as the ultimate playground for aduts.

Back then, Las Vegas was filled with brightly-lit casinos, over-the-top stage shows, and places to drink all day and all night. In those days, a vacationer could see a performance, hit the slots from sun-down to sun-up, shoot liquor for breakfast and hit the sack until noon just to start all over again.

Las Vegas vacations took on a different connotation starting in the early 90s when the city casinos began attracting entire families. This was done to compete with newer attractions like the New York New York roller coaster and the MGM Grand, with a family-focused environment.

The casino management caught on to the possibility of attracting families, who had vacation money to spend, while continuing to serve their high rollers and devoted gambling clientele. That caused the rise of family-oriented entertainment, including restaurants, shows and other places focused on kids. Even many casinos started offering childcare services to parents, in order to allow them to continue gambling and drinking while their kids played.

Now the typical vacation to Las Vegas is caught somewhere between a child and an adult's wonderland. It's not unusual to see amusement park rides swarming over the heads of slot machines and card tables. Now that prostitution is legal in Vegas, you will even see advertisements on cabs for topless shows and fliers all over the place for escort services, right next to the latest commercial for Sponge Bob Square Pants.

The aura of the adult playground still permeates, despite the strip's re-branding as a family vacation spot. The city flows with money and champagne, as it remains host to the greatest number of fine restaurants and dance clubs to be found in any place in the U.S.A. - 30230

The Attractions of Las Vegas

By Chris Linch

Paris, New York, Italy, all on the same street. Can you imagine? It is a good idea to make a list of the spots you want to visit while you are in "Sin City" before you make the trip. Here are a few ideas for the top "must see" locations.

Accentuated by a lovely musical water fountain is Las Vegas' very own Bellagio. Inside is a recreation of Venice complete with gondola rides, exclusive art boutiques, and a shopping center. You can also enjoy "O" by Cirque du Soleil, gamble in the fabulous casino, of dine in five star restaurants like Circo and Jasmine. The Bellagio is easily on of the greatest Las Vegas attractions.

At the Mirage, between 8pm and midnight, their volcano erupts, a splendid display of fire and water. Though the Mirage is known around the world for their outdoor activities, come inside and there is much more to be seen. At the front desk you will find a 20,000-gallon saltwater tank. You will also experience the 90-foot high atrium ceiling, waterfalls, and rainforest garden. You can also find Siegfried and Roy's Secret Garden and a Dolphin Habitat inside the resort.

Freemont Street, home of the Freemont Street Experience, is a must see free attraction. Freemont street is home to street entertainers and performers, a nightly light show on the canopy, and it is all covered by a 90-foot high canopy. This street is open to pedestrians only and is one of the most popular Vegas attractions.

Amazing magicians, world-class singers, and impossible acrobatics. If you can imagine it, you can find it in Vegas. Though, it is difficult to list the most popular attractions, because the shows do change from time to time.

Vegas is home to many shows, like Phantom of the Opera at the Venetian, where the stage was built just for that show. Critics claim it is the best performance of Phantom. There are many Cirque du Soliel shows, even an "adults-only" show. Famous singers like Elton John, Bette Midler, and Cher are regulars on stages in Vegas, and the Blue Man Group is also a very popular attraction. - 30230

What's Legal and Not In Las Vegas

By Chris Linch

Las Vegas, Nevada is the party headquarters of the USA. It is also known as Sin City because of its never sleep policy. Drinking and gambling are offered around the clock. Local law enforcement is kept busy catching drunk drivers. If you are caught drinking and driving, contact a local Attorney that specializes in DUI's to handle the situation.

Las Vegas visitors often consume enough alcohol to make themselves sick. It is served all day and night. It is easy to get drunk. People need to drink responsibly and designate a driver or take a cab instead of getting behind the wheel themselves.

Many law's are believed to not exist in Las Vegas. People tend to act different than they do at home thinking it will be acceptable. Vegas's laws are much like anywhere else's in the US. Law enforcement will cite you for "pubic drunkenness". This will put a damper on you good time vacation.

Drinking diminishes ones inhibitions, and loosens judgment. Women need to be particularly careful in this situation. Many predator's will seem charming. This leads to a high incidence of sexual assault and rape. The victims are usually robbed for their valuables as well. The police have a hard time catching these criminals, because an intoxicated witness is not a very good witness.

While enjoying all Las Vegas has to offer, remember, to obey the law. Drink in a responsible manner. Follow the laws, as if you were at home.

The point here is to be wise when you travel to Las Vegas. We know it is known as sin city, and that what goes there stays there, but you don't want to be the one staying there because you have broken the law. We also don't want you to come home broke because you spent all your money being stupid gambling or breaking the law. Keep a good sense of those around you and make sure you are doing what a good citizen would do even if you are having fun doing it. - 30230

Cheap Hotel Rates and the Economy

By Chris Linch

Tough times for the hotel industry. But still, even with comforts and resources decreased, the costumer service marks are on the increase.

First, there are fewer jobs in the industry. A measure are the employees themselves, working harder on keeping their jobs than before. Pampering their guests more than usual, they become closer to their diligent colleagues who never lost their jobs in the first place. Besides highly-motivated staff, nother factor that shows how much hotels are interested in keeping guests is seen in their established programs pushing brand loyalty.

Second, the hotels denote fewer guests. By the end of the first week in May, a decrease of 14%, as opposed to last year's rate, took place, reports Smith Travel Research. A lower number is presented by Pricewaterhouse: Their forecast of a 3.5% drop would still put the industry below its 1971 rate!

These numbers need comparison to the employment date of the same period. A report by the ADP denotes a drop of 8.3% from 1,955,300 to 1,793,900 for the time from June 2008 tp June 2009. The survey's mostly larger or midsize organizations follow a current trend in the US by keeping a larger percentage of employees than their smaller rivals.

Staff are working harder to please their customers; the guests, in turn, can expect a higher number of staff to pamper them; 9.4% lower prices do the rest. As a consequence, a higher customer satisfaction is not surprising - hotel guests these days must sure feel like kings in their own bargain castle!

Remember to pack chargers for your electrinic devices such as cell phone, iPod, GPS, alarm clock, and electronic games - in case you have kids. Sunglasses and bathing suit will also need to find a place in your luggage. That in mind, all you have to do is lay back and look forward to a refreshing holiday! - 30230
