Here are some tips that will help you save money on your next hotel stay. With the internet it looks easy to book discount hotel rates. However it is not that easy as it seems. The reason for that is that the major sites like Orbitz,  Priceline, Expedia, Side Step and Travelocity are spending a lot of advertising money to convince you that they offer you the best rate. However they just offer you internet rates and these rates are most of the time not the lowest rate you would be able to get.  To give you a better understanding here are the different type of rates that you can find:

Hotel Internet Rates

Internet Rates refer to the rates that are published by sites like Expedia, Orbitz, and Travelocity. These highly advertised sites on the TV, radio, newspaper, and magazines. They can afford a very high advertising budget, because they mark up their rooms 30 to 40 percent they get from the hotels, and just a little below the hotel website (GDS Rates).  These third party Internet Rates have the power to triple their mark up their rates and charge local sales tax on the sell rate and also add a service charge so they really get at your wallet from every direction.  The Internet Rate websites pay the Net Rates as agreed in their original negotiations back the hotel vendors and then keep the tax and service charge on the difference between the Net Rate and marked up portion of the sale.

The only time you are getting a good rate with Internet Rates is when the rate is 30 to 50 percent off. Internet Rates are prepaid and can become a hassle to try and cancel your reservation and get your money back.

GDS Rates

The Global Distribution System is a computerized reservation network that supplies travel agents with GDS Rates. GDS Rates are much the standard traditional hotel room rates that are offered by the hotels to the public on their website and over the phone with their reservations center. The GDS offers hotel discount rates that apply to Military, Corporate, Senior Citizen, Rack, Preferred, Promotional, Government, AAA, AARP, and Travel Agents.  Promotional hotel discount rates are like entering a promotional code on a hotel website for a reduced rate right before you book your reservation. Not every hotel offers a promotional rate but if they do, the saving can be significantly lower than what they are selling to the general public. If Promotional rates are available, they will be displayed as so. The GDS Rates supply weekend and weekly hotel rates. Weekend hotel rates are hotel room rates in reference to the days of the week being Friday and Saturday.

Negotiated Rates

Negotiated Hotel Rates are exactly like the sound. Also known as Preferred Rates, which are some of the best hotel rates that exist! Preferred is a term used in the GDS to describe rates negotiated by a hotel company with a specific client. Negotiated Rates are special hotel rates given to travel agents by the hotel vendors because of their superior relationships and track history record with them. The hotel vendors guarantee travel agents that Negotiated Rates are lower than any public distribution channel. 

Net Rates

NET Rates are cheap hotel room rates that are also known as Net Fares and Travel Agent Rates. Net Rates are by far the lowest hotel rates that exist. Unlike Negotiate, GDS, and Internet Rates,  these discounted hotel rates are obtained from travel wholesale consolidators who purchase rooms in bulk amount from the hotel vendors. The more rooms the travel wholesaler purchases, the lower the wholesale rate they will receive. Once they have purchased the rooms from the hotel vendors they will add a small markup to the wholesale Net Rate and then submit the prepaid Net Rate to personal travel agent for resale to their clients. Sometimes the Net Rates that are submitted  are not the lowest hotel rates that exist, therefor you it is important to work with your personal travel agent that works in the best interest for you.

With a better understanding of the hotel rates here some of the tips that will help you get the best hotel rate

Tip 1 : Stay away from  the high advertised corporations such as Priceline, Expedia, Side Step and Travelocity, they are not giving you the best rates.  These Internet companies pay hundreds of millions of dollars every year using different methods of advertising so you hear about them. The majority of their inventory is way too expensive and the only discounts you see is about 10% of their inventory.

Tip 2: When dealing with your hotel reservations use a travel industry professional, and the solution is to locate an agent that doesn’t make you pay for their services, which is what our services off. Why would you want to pay excess booking and service fees when there is no actual labor involved with anyone else you.

Tip 3: Gain knowledge and awareness of the different rate types in the industry to choose from. Don’t just limit yourself to the Internet rates and the hotel website. If you explore other avenues as mentioned above, you can be sure that this will increase your options with savings.

Tip 4: Make a travel agents job who doesn’t charge fees as easy as possible so they can search effectively for the best hotel rates. Take time to form information accurately for an agent beforehand. A travel agent needs the departure and an arrival date the preferred city you want to stay in. To make things a lot easier, include the zip code you want to stay in, useful so they locate the perfect hotel for you. Provide number of rooms and beds you require and how many people. Don’t forget to include a list of desired hotels that you are interested in. Make sure you are prepared for a travel agent to operate which increases efficiency if you give them all the correct reservation data the first time.

Tip 5:  Clear your cookies each and every time you visit different online travel agencies. Many websites share the same inventory and a conspiracy exists that they can install trackers from the information you provide them.

If you are looking for a personal travel agent to book discounted hotel rates have a look what we can offer you.

Atlantis is found on Google Earth by  UK-based aeronautical engineer Bernie Bamford, the spotting on Google Map of the under water remains of Atlantis, real or fake, has put the name of the lost civilization on the front pages of the world media in capital letters.Very interesting news. It was published in the The Sun that he had seen grid of lines undersea off the coast of West Africa, about 600 miles west of the Canary Islands. The coordinates are 31 15’15.53N, 24 15’30.53W. You can see it on Google Map, however don’t zoom in completely as it will not give you any image on the max zoom in level, you have to go half way zoomed in. Here you see clearly a some square grid lines, which could indicate the sunken City of Atlantis. This location is very close to  the spot where Plato  had pinpointed as a possible resting place of Atlantis. In addition, the site is about the same size as Plato described. And if we believe Google’s explanation, why is this the only and first place such grid shows up on the sea bottom, in a location that is been pin pointed before as the Atlantis City?

Lost City of Atlantis on Google Earth

Lost City of Atlantis on Google Earth

Atlantis is a mythical Island which was first mention by Plato and he described how it sunk into the ocean in a single day and night around 9000 BC. However here is what Google has to say about it:

“It’s true that many amazing discoveries have been made in Google Earth including a pristine forest in Mozambique that is home to previously unknown species and the remains of an Ancient Roman villa.”

“In this case, however, what users are seeing is an artifact of the data collection process. Bathymetric (or sea floor terrain) data is often collected from boats using sonar to take measurements of the sea floor.

To me this sounds like a cover up. The explanation is a bit weak, Scientifically, Google’s assertion of sonar artifacts doesn’t make sense. Scrubbing artifacts from sonar data is Map making 101 and any intelligent map science professional will agree with this. If Google really wanted to put this to rest they would release the original raw data and allow it to be studied by other professionals. Maybe Google should take up the challenge and fund a research mission to check out this area. That is how they should deal with it. They have the money to fund something like that and let the results of the mission speak for itself.

If you look at the Geometrically rectangular shapes discovered are almost perfect, check it out:

So, you be the judge, however it is very interesting to see what just now surfaced. Lot of Lightworkers will be excited about this and as we are now in the Age of Aquarius.

How the ancients described that Atlantis sunk in the sea some 10,000 years ago is a never dying enigma. How the pyramids were built is another enigma from the same dimensions. I understand that the two are intertwined because I am in the possession of an Atlantis ring.  The one I have is a copy of the original. The original was found in 1860 in a tomb of High Priest Jua in the Valley of the Kings in Egypt. In the tomb was a text that stated that immunity against all mishap was granted to he who entered there. The ring has 3 tiny pyramids on each side of three lines, symbolizing the pyramids in Africa and in South America.

The lines connecting them symbolize the Atlantic Ocean. Flat triangles represent Atlantis and the other disappeared civilization of Lemuria. The methodical configuration of the pattern on the ring sends out vibrations that seem to have a beneficial influence to the owner.  This was first proven by Howard carter when he opened the burial chamber of King Tut Ankh Amon. Carter was in possession of the original ring when he opened the royal tomb and he did not meet any mishap while 18 others died mysteriously in the first year. Copies of the ring were made and every body that got a copy had the same feeling of being protected, of getting better insight, of understanding. I have the strong feeling that [part of] our world today is on the verge of its own destruction for the same reasons Atlantis disappeared; abuse of scientific power. Genetically Modified food crops, stem cell research, cloning, depleted uranium, weapons of mass destruction, colony collapse disorder (bees are vanishing), biological war fare, electronic frequency saturation, the list has no end. The Atlantis ring caries in it a serious warning. The articles in the media about what some think could be the remains of Atlantis alerts me again of the grave danger the world is in today. The ring I have may shield me from all mishap as it is a message and a warning keeping the danger at bay.

Here some more detail about Atlantis:

Atlantis: is a legendary island first mentioned in Plato’s dialogues Timaeus and Critias.

In Plato’s account, Atlantis was a naval power lying “in front of the Pillars of Hercules” that conquered many parts of Western Europe and Africa 9,000 years before the time of Solon, or approximately 9600 BC. After a failed attempt to invade Athens, Atlantis sank into the ocean “in a single day and night of misfortune”.

Scholars dispute whether and how much Plato’s story or account was inspired by older traditions. Some scholars argue Plato drew upon memories of past events such as the Thera eruption or the Trojan War, while others insist that he took inspiration from contemporary events like the destruction of Helike in 373 BC or the failed Athenian invasion of Sicily in 415–413 BC.

The possible existence of a genuine Atlantis was actively discussed throughout classical antiquity, but it was usually rejected and occasionally parodied by later authors. While little known during the Middle Ages, the story of Atlantis was rediscovered by Humanists in the Early Modern period. Plato’s description inspired the utopian works of several Renaissance writers, like Francis Bacon’s “New Atlantis”. Atlantis inspires today’s literature, from science fiction to comic books to films, its name having become a byword for any and all supposed advanced prehistoric lost civilizations.

12 Tips For Women, How to deal with Caribbean men

12 Tips For Women, How to deal with Caribbean men

This afternoon I listened to the Radio show Caribbean Connections on Radio Anguilla. The Lady Bree had some interesting tips for the ladies.   A lot of truth is in these

“12 Tips for Every Woman”

Tip 1

Stop believing that every man loves you simply because he says he does. When it’s convenient for him, he acts like he does. Awards are given every year for the best actor/actress award. Just add his name to the nominations.

I am one of them that are not running for any nominations, lol. However I know that this “I love you” can be used to get want men wants. On the otherhand to me werent women “complaining” that man dont say “I love you” enough or not at all… hmm something to thing about.

Tip 2

Stop believing that you can change him. You can’t. He has to change and want to change first and foremost. Stop thinking that because you caught him in a major lie and he cried and told you how much he loves you that he won’t do it again, because he will.

Yes, a man should not change his mind/ways just to please a woman. If a man wants to change, he should do it from his own perspective and his own deepest knowledge and intuition. However of course as a man you should always listen to your woman, but then make youw own decision and not just change to please a woman. Both man and woman are not benefiting from that action, she will see you as weak and you will start to doubt your own wisdom.

Tip 3

Stop trying to catch your man cheating when you know when you do catch him, you’re not going to leave him anyway. So what’s the purpose in knowing? At least ignorance truly is bliss.

So true. Furthermore the law of attraction will always give you want you are looking for. So the more you are looking for evidence that your partner is cheating, the more you will find. And from a man point of view, if your company is great and nice and you treat your man as a king, cheating will be the last thing on your mind. Everyone wants to be where it is nice and pleasant and be around with positive and happy people. And the few men that can’t behave them, so be it. Those will only see what they “good woman” they had after they lost it. Unfortunately.

Tip 4

Stop busting out all the windows in the man’s car just because you caught him cheating AGAIN. You’re going to stay with him and now you have to drive him around until he gets his car fixed. Or you will end up “loaning” him the money to get it fixed, or help him put plastic up to the windows until they are fixed.

Thank you! Lol, some good advice here. Breaking the glass and the car dont help nobody. I have heard of occasions where a car was mashed up, just to find that a similar car was parked in the parking lot and the WRONG car was all beat up… A owner of an Adult place told me a story like this where a similar car was parked at his establishment and a woman came to slash the tires and mess up the car bad, just to find that her husband wasn’t at this location, when she called him to tell what she did to the car…. and he reply” But darling I am driving my car right now. let me come to you”. Yea, and the owner of the car had now a challenge to go home to his wife with a beat up car…Luckily the settle on letting the man go with their car.  So please think again when starting to break stuff…I dont help and most of the time it will only make things worse.

Tip 5

Stop lying to your girls about how wonderful he is. We already know he Ain’t nothing. More than likely he’s already pushed up on one of them, but for your sake we keep quiet. If he’s so wonderful we will see that even if you never say a word.

Not much to add to that one … As with everything in life Actions speaks louder than words!

Tip 6

Stop believing he’s going to leave his wife for you. She’s the wife for a reason and you’re the other woman for a reason.

If you know from the start that someone is in a relationship, why are  you looking at someone that is already “taken”. So if you need to be around that person so badly, just accept you not the only woman. And if you cant accept that move on. But somehow it is that the men who date many woman are magnets for other women. Maybe it make the woman feel better when they have won that man over. A man isn’t that interesting   when shows  interest in only one woman.

Tip 7

Every time you take him back after you’ve caught him lying and cheating, he loses more respect for you. Get caught lying or cheating once and see how quick he leaves you without even considering taking you back, and have you replaced before you finish begging his forgiveness.

Lying and cheating, it is sad that men (and women) treat each other like that. Have respect for each other. If you are not interested in someone anymore, be frank and let explain that. Unfortunately man and woman see their partners as their possession. It is time to realize that you don’t own the other person. Live and let live. Time to move on and look back on a good time together and most likely the Universe has even a way better experience waiting for you. Everything happens for a reason…enjoy life

Tip 8

Stop thinking that because the brother has money he’s going to spend it on you! Get your own money then it won’t matter if he does or doesn’t.

Yep, it is 2009, time for women to stand up for themselves and take a man out to dinner and pay of it. Call me I would love to be treated by a woman.

Tip 9

Stop thinking you’re the main woman when if you really looked at all the signs and signals you would realize you’re the other woman.

Main woman, by-side lol. Again I would say enjoy life. Accept what is or move on. Only you know what


Tip 10

Stop introducing every joker you meet to your kids. Even your kids will stop respecting you eventually.

Tip 11

Stop giving more of yourself to a man than he’s willing to give to you. And for goodness sake quit believing his lies of being hurt before so now he’s afraid to trust again, which is why he just can’t give of himself.
Once gain the best actor award goes to…

Good point, this of course is also valid for man. However if you give because you love, you shouldn’t want to expect back anything, because if you do want something in return, was it love in the first place. Real love to me should be unconditional.

Tip 12

Alright ladies, very important! Stop just taking him at his word when he gives you some Fantasy tale. Every now and then ask for proof. Be careful of the smoke screen that he will hit you with. He will catch an attitude, act insulted, might even pretend to be mad. It’s all a smoke screen. After all the theatrics; still insist on the proof. For example, he hasn’t called in 3 days because he was on the moon for work. Alright . . . insist on seeing something from the moon.

Proof?…I like this one…Hmm, let me think…oh yea, I could not call you my phone as broken. (let get a second phone that don’t work)  or I was on a business trip, here honey, the tickets…See proof don’t help either. Why do you need proof? Life your own life, why are we all so depending on the other person to be happy. We have to make ourself happy and enjoy. Be happy he is gone for three days…finally some free time to do what you want to do. :)

Conclusion

Men will not respect us if we don’t respect ourselves. They will use us up.

They will tell us all we need to hear and feed on every insecurity and low self-esteem issue we’ve ever had, just to get what they want when they want it.
Those are not the women they make their wives.
Those are not the women they respect.

A strong, confident, secure woman is who they will marry and whom they will respect.

Remember to keep it real, girlfriends and remember these wor

Respect each other and enjoy life. Lets life in harmony with eachother. Hoping to here the follow up on the radio, some “You asked I have answers” Keep up the good work Lady Bree, it is always nice to listen to your great Show in the afternoon.

So listen to Lady Bree on Radio Anguilla 95.5 FM from Monday to Friday 2Pm till 6 PM . You can also listen live on your PC to Radio Axa

Today I got again an email warning people of a person having AIDS. In total I got three messages, two different persons. In both cases the person, who was infected was female.

In my opinion is is completely wrong to forward these messages! Yes, of course you want to warn someone about a potential risk, however if you don’t know the person, I think you shouldn’t forward it! Let me explain. If hher boy friend who got over jealous reacted with sending out this email, what devasting effect that will have on this persons life? You ever thought about that? I don’t believe most people don’t even think about it and just forward these emails. With the power of the internet this spreads like wild fire. And in this case the same email reached my twice within a week!

Of course I agree if these persons are really willingly infectiong people with AIDS, I would agree a warning would be nice. However how come that we only warning people agains infected AIDS persons and not against known criminals or killers in our society, via email? In most cases the identities of these persons, when published are not revealed and if there is a picture the eyes are covered with a black bar or so.  That makes me really wonder… if there is a jealous lover at play, who wants to make sure to hurt this persons as much as possible.

See if people would be more concerned about their own health and start protecting themselves by having protected sex, you would reduce the risk of getting infected. And if you are really concerned, dont have sex at all, unless you really establish a relationship and get to know your partner better than the night. However  most people feel by spreading these emails some kind of “protection”, because a person with AIDS got a face. However at the same time the forget that at the same time to go to bed with the person they met a hour ago, can have AIDS as well…

I hope that people realize more what their actions of just a simple forwarded email can do to someone, you never met and dont know the complete story. Just think for a moment, because the internet is a very powerful viral medium, just because someone else emailed you the email it must be right, is so wrong! There are more emails hoaxes running around the internet than real stories.
