Some Foreign Airlines Offer Volunteer Stopover Deals PDF Print E-mail


For example, book a flight on Norwegian Air, with the destination of Paris. The schedule includes a stop in Oslo. Normally, you’d stay on the plane for the hour or so it takes other travelers to exit and enter.

However, suppose the airline offered you a free night at an Oslo hotel, dinner and other goodies worth several hundred dollars? That’s the trend these days for some foreign airlines to get you to spend time and money in their home city. Would you, a senior with no particular reason to hurry, add a free day or two to the journey? When booking your next overseas flight with a stopover, ask if the airline offers this attractive freebee.

Q: We haven’t cruised in at least 10 years. Now we’re going with a group, and I’m wondering: Should we pack formal clothes for dinners and late-night activities? Ms. Mary J., Bangor ME

A: It depends on your cruise line. For dinner, big ships usually require evening wear, but not necessarily formal. Cocktail dresses for ladies and suits for men. Of course, if you want to get all gussied up for those activities, pack your formal duds. To be sure of the ship’s dress code, check with your travel group leader and/or the cruise line’s website.
