You can't stop traveling just because hurricane season is just around the corner. Statistically speaking, the chance of your short trip being threatened by a hurricane is very small; but that doesn't mean you shouldn't be prepared. As hurricane season quickly approaches it is good to be aware of your insurance options.

KLM is working to add this unique service to more and more routes, visit www.klm.com to see if your next KLM flight offers it.
Need A Light? Flashlight That is!
Flashlights have been around since the 1800s, but Flashlight Apps are fairly new. Most business travelers know the benefits of owning a smart phone; make a call, get directions, set up a meeting etc., but you now can use it as a flashlight too! There are at least a dozen free apps available across the various systems, so find one that suits you. Be sure to download one that uses your camera's flash and doesn't just turn your screen white - those one's don't work very well. This app will come in particularly handy when you drop a pen under your airplane seat.
