One of the best parts of being the blogger for Travel Insurance Services is having the ability to experience some of the most interesting events in travel. This week, I get to have one of those once-in-a-lifetime experiences, by tagging along the Star MegaDO 5. But don't think it's all fun and games for me and a lot of other travel aficionados like myself: this week, I'll be learning how new luggage is being built and traced to prevent baggage loss, understand how international airlines and hotel chains prevent irregular operations, and see the place where Airplanes go into retirement in Arizona.
But the true planning for this trip began many months ago, all the way back in July, by applying for my NEXUS trusted traveler card. In the latest edition of the Travel Insure Blog, I go over my experience in applying and being accepted for the NEXUS program, and the benefits that came with it. After being able to fast-track through customs upon landing in Toronto, it was absolutely worth it.
Have you applied for a trusted traveler program? What was your experience with the process and benefits? Leave me a comment on the Travel Insure Blog with your thoughts!
