2007-11-07 13:29:31.0 Rosemary McClure, Assistant Travel Editor: I have a travel kit with 3-ounce or smaller liquids like shampoo, sunscreen and toothpaste.
2007-11-07 13:30:10.0 Administrator2: Is it an extra headache getting through security with that stuff? Is it all searched? Should I just bite the bullet and check some luggage?
2007-11-07 13:30:19.0 Jane Engle, Assistant Travel Editor: Smart move, Rosemary. And Jen: Shame on you!
2007-11-07 13:30:32.0 Jen Leo, Travel Deal Blogger: schmulka, which airport in Rhode Island do you need, I found these BID Block Island UUU Newport OQU North Kingstown - Quonset Airport Nearby Hotels PVD Providence - T F Green Airport Nearby Hotels WST Westerly
2007-11-07 13:30:47.0 Administrator2: And also...how about prescriptions? Can I bring one of those little pill-a-day box thingies, or do I actually need to have the prescription bottle showing it's mine?
2007-11-07 13:31:12.0 Vani Rangachar, Deputy Travel Editor: If I am traveling abroad I like to buy some toiletries in my destination country because it's fun try new stuff that you may not find in the U.S.
2007-11-07 13:31:39.0 Administrator2: Oh, that's true. Or maybe I can just take the liberty of mailing some shampoo and toothpaste to my mom...
2007-11-07 13:31:50.0 Administrator2: ahead of time of course. :)
2007-11-07 13:32:06.0 Rosemary McClure, Assistant Travel Editor: I haven't had any problems carrying a pill-a-day box, but I've probably been lucky. TSA can require labeled prescription bottles.
2007-11-07 13:32:20.0 Jen Leo, Travel Deal Blogger: So, lets talk about the airlines that still have airfare sales around Christmas
2007-11-07 13:32:33.0 schmulka: I'm not sure, I'll have to check with my bro. Are there any great restaurants or nightclubs or anything that I shouldn't miss? II ask hopefully, but doubtfully...
2007-11-07 13:33:13.0 Jen Leo, Travel Deal Blogger: Schmulka, I don't know, I haven't been to Rhode Island, but I hear Providence is really great. I hope you're going near there.
2007-11-07 13:33:31.0 Administrator2: There's gotta be something fun and kitschy with a Rhode Island Red rooster theme...right?
2007-11-07 13:33:48.0 Vani Rangachar, Deputy Travel Editor: Travel with your prescriptions in the prescription bottle, because it helps to identify them. Travel Editor Catharine Hamm has these tips on traveling with medications: http://travel.latimes.com/articles/la-trw-spot23sep23
2007-11-07 13:33:52.0 Jane Engle, Assistant Travel Editor: Jen. good idea. Amazingly, some airlines do have sales. Aloha just annonced a sale for travel Dec. 1 to 19 and Jan. 9 to Feb. 13.
2007-11-07 13:34:53.0 Jen Leo, Travel Deal Blogger: Back to holiday airfare sales - Booking Buddy sent me an email yesterday saying that American, Northwest and United still had holiday sales going on (and until Nov. 21)
2007-11-07 13:35:35.0 Rosemary McClure, Assistant Travel Editor: Regarding that Aloha sale, Jane, I noticed the fares from Los Angeles to Hawaii were as low as $129.
2007-11-07 13:36:01.0 Administrator2: Are these sales to places where people don't normally travel over the holidays? Like, sales to Hawaii rather than Des Moines?
2007-11-07 13:37:07.0 Jen Leo, Travel Deal Blogger: I cashed in on a Southwest sale. 2 tix on Dec. 23 one-way,Vegas to San Diego. $118 for both of us on Southwest including taxes and fees. Cha-ching!
