Johnny Jet ...In the Shade

Episode 1499

Johnny Jet is calling in from Dell Ray Beach, where you can get great deals traveling there. Like $150 one way. Great deal for a fast summer vacation. Johnny Jet is also traveling to DC, and HApp ilton Hotels are testing Beam technology, which projects on the wall of your hotel room. So you may not have a TV in your room in the future. Leo also says that hotel chains are going to be putting Amazon Echo in their rooms, geared towards hospitality and room service. And they reset when you check out, so the hotel or the next guest doesn't get access to your personal data.

Tip of the week: You can save money traveling to Europe by flying to a secondary city. But you have to pack light or you'll get socked by extra baggage fees. You can fly into Milan, instead of Rome, and then take the train and save thousands. Go to Google Flights and put in your departure city. Then you'll get a map that shows you different destinations and prices. Kayak does it too. Also plan to leave plenty of time in between flights. Even spend the night. Another great flight is Fly 4 Free.

Johnny Jet joins Leo in studio this week and his app of the week is the New York City Subway MTA Map App, a great free resource for getting around the city. It's has a countdown clock to the latest train coming, but can also help one get around the city. Leo says that the Google Maps app is also really good because it has added rapid transit information. Free on iOS and Android.
