Last-Minute Travel Secrets: 121 Ingenious Tips to Endure Cramped Planes, Car Trouble, Awful Hotels, and Other Trips from Hell

By Joey Green
The golden days of complimentary in-flight champagne and cushy sleeping car coaches on the Orient Express are largely behind us. Say hello to $50 “leg room upgrade” fees and bedbug-infested hotels. What’s a weary, frustrated traveler to do? Ask Joey Green for advice, that’s what! A lifelong world explorer, Green has collected more than a hundred of his best travel hacks to rescue your hard-earned vacation. Some of the tips in Last-Minute Travel Secrets seem goofy at first, but work in a pinch. Readers will discover a wide range of handy and unusual secrets to overcome obstacles and upgrade accommodations using common, easily-found products. Green will show you how to use a bathtub as a washing machine, uncork a wine bottle with a sneaker, and stash you valuables in a variety of clever locations, from neckties to potato chip bags. Stranded on a deserted island? Purify and desalinate ocean water with a T-shirt. Tired of scraping splattered bugs from your car’s hood and front grill? Protect them with cooking spray. Noisy baby on the airplane? Insert tampon ear plugs and ignore the stares—enveloped in silence, you can enjoy reading this book’s numerous entertaining sidebars and fascinating pieces of travel trivia, comforted in knowing that you will never see, or hear, those fellow passengers ever again.
