A week in review: ConsumerTraveler.com merging with TravelersUnited.org, Travel sickness infographic, Confusion about TSA screening, Delta customer service and more…
Educating travelers and informing them of their rights have been core values for Travelers United. To help further the mission, ConsumerTraveler.com will be merged with TravelersUnited.org. Travelers, through newsletters and daily articles, will be given important travel tips, informed of upcoming legislation affecting them and offered discounts from numerous sponsors.
Whether traveling by car, by boat or by plane, illnesses can happen to anyone. Our travel infographic can help everyone avoid a sickness that can ruin their vacation.
Ever since TSA was formed, confusion has surrounded that department. Consumer advocate, Chris Elliott, discusses the latest announcements by TSA, and the backtracking after those announcements.
Other stories include Delta customer service failing again and viruses, including Zika, that are a big concern for travelers.
Travelers United thanks you for your support. We are here to keep you informed and updated on travel policies and problems affecting the travel industry. Plus, we work every day to keep consumer issues in front of Congress, their staff, and stakeholders. During this last week, Travelers United met with senators regarding the elimination of hidden hotel resort fees and the effects of the anti-trust immunity grants on aviation competition. We also spent time with the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee as they prepared the FAA Reauthorization bill for mark-up. None of our work in Washington, DC, or in state legislatures, can happen without the generous support and donations from the public. Join us by making a donation.

Travel sickness infographic

Why air travelers are confused about TSA screening
These are confusing times for airline passengers when it comes to TSA. The government has made announcements and then backtracked twice in recent days. Can’t they make up their minds?
Delta customer service fails Air France/KLM passengers from the US
Delta and Air France/KLM need to clean up their code sharing and customer service. When there is no one at the customer service counter or answering the phone who knows what is happening with changing airline tickets issued by code share partners, customers can be left high and dry.
Zika virus not the only health concern for international travelers
The Zika virus is sweeping through South and Central America, plus the Caribbean, but there are other health concerns of which international travelers must be cognizant. Ned Levi explores the problems of Zika and other traveler health issues.
