F is for Fly With an E-Ticket

The cost of processing a paper ticket is approximately $10, while processing an e-ticket costs only $1. In the near future, e-tickets will be the only option, saving the airline industry $3 billion a year. In addition to financial savings, the sheer amount of paper eliminated by this process is commendable. Fly green with kids.

I always use e-tickets except on the rare occasion that I am issued them. I book 99% of my trips online, but even if I get a regular ticket, I will either recycle them or put them in a scrapbook. I only take 1 plane trip a year (if that many), so I don't have a lot of tickets to deal with. I'm sure the entire industry will go to e-tickets pretty soon.

Then on the other side I write my daily things to do while I'm traveling. After I
transfer all this to my agenda/diary I
recycle the paper.

For my very first travel last year in april to thailand, I used e-ticket. I agree with wath Monica D. has said : I live in France and there's a lot to see. In USA they(re is a lot to see too. In future I will not leave in France but in Thailand, India or Sri Lanka.

Try to fly less is better for the planet. ANd try to by local-food too ! Food transportation is very a hidden face of pollution made by food habits.

i'd like to walk to jamaica for my vacation, but since cuba is in the way, it's out of the question.
