SA’s new travelling with minors rule

On the 1st of June the new rule for children travelling in South Africa will come into effect, all major airlines say they have done all they can to inform those that will be effected.

As the date creeps closer, whether you like it or not, these provisions have to be made!

The Chairperson of the Board of Airline Representatives of South Africa (BARSA), Carla da Silva says she is still concerned about how its implementation will affect tourism in South Africa. She went on to say, “We are extremely concerned as South Africa is indeed the only country in the world implementing an Unabridged Birth Certificate to be accompanied with a passport when travelling with children.”

Tourism Minister Derek Hanekom confirmed in parliament recently that there had been negative growth over the past six months from countries affected by the regulations.

No matter what the findings may be, South African travelers who want to stay on the right side of the law should prepare their travel documents according to the new visa regulations, or face immediate deportation!

To assist travelers to South Africa, here are the things you need to know about travelling with minors in SA:

Child + Both Parents
Documents required:
- Unabridged birth certificate
- Valid passport

Child + 1 Parent
Documents required:

- Affidavit granting permission to travel from absent parent
- Or court order giving travelling parent full responsibility
- Legally separated parents provide a court order when other parent does not give consent
- Death certificate if one parent is deceased

Child + Guardian only
Documents required:

- Affidavit from the parents or legal guardian to state child is allowed to travel – name guardian
- Contact details of the parents or legal guardian
- Copies of the identity documents and passports of the parents or legal guardian
- If both parents deceased Director-General must approve guardian to accompany child
- If adopted provide adoption certificate

Child + Unaccompanied
Documents required:

- Affidavit or court order with contact details signed by both parents or legal guardian giving permission to travel
- Contact details, certified copies of the identity document or passport of the person the child is staying with (necessary if person receiving child not same as person child is staying with)
- Letter from the person receiving the child (to include contact details and physical address)

5 Carry-On Travel Essentials

When you travel by airplane, whether it is for business or with your whole family, it is extremely crucial to be ready for the unexpected. These are five absolute must-haves to include in your carry on!

- Mini-flashlight - When your cellphone, wallet or any other small item rolls under your seat at night (especially your baby’s dummy) you’ll be so glad your flashlight is at hand.

- Refillable Water Bottle -
Staying hydrated on a long flight is so important! Small cups can easily fall off a tray, and just won’t do for air travel. Use a container that can be kept in your pocket or bag and ask to fill it with ice and water. You should get one water bottle for every traveler.

- Lip Savers -
Always keep a lip balm in a small baggie within reach along with the next few items. Your lips can dry out easily in the dry air on board the airplane, so a lip balm close at hand is essential.

- Eye Drops -
Like a handy lip balm, these are a must! Dry red eyes are not only unsightly but can be very uncomfortable. Plain saline nasal spray can also combat the dryness of plane travel.

- Special Treat -
Whether you, your companion or the kids, pack a small surprise or two to pull out when the trip gets dull. Maybe a sweet treat for yourself or maybe an unexpected toy/game or puzzle for the little ones. The newness will break up the boring.

When air travel takes you beyond a few hours, you always need to have these five carry-on essentials on hand!

For a reliable shuttle service in Cape Town, give Airport Shuttle a call and one of the friendly drivers can shuttle you to and from Cape Town International Airport. Need a self-catering apartment with amazing views of the Mother City? Book in at 808 Cartwright today!

Breakfasts from around the world

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day – it keeps us sharp and healthy! And as with any meal of the day, breakfast is interpreted differently around the world. So, if you’re a traveler and you love trying out different cuisines, here are the best places in the world for a delicious breakfast…

A full English breakfast
Other countries do include meat in their breakfast, but no one does it quite like the English! A typical English breakfast or otherwise known as a fry-up must consist of beans, sausages, bacon, egg, fried mushrooms, hash browns, toast and a salty disc of black pudding.

The French breakfast
French food is known for being rich and very delicious, that’s why they choose to only eat sweet food (nothing with salt) for breakfast. A French breakfast includes tea, coffee or juice with breakfast pastries like croissants, baguettes, French bread and plenty of butter and jam.

Breakfast in Japan
Tofu is a popular choice for breakfast in Japan. But, often a simple bowl of miso soup and rice or rice porridge sometimes with a piece of cooked fish and pickled vegetables, is a typical breakfast in Japan. Of course, don’t forget your cup of green tea.

The famous American breakfast
Breakfast in America is very varied. You will find different takes on the meal across the states. But the most popular breakfast options in America are always doughnuts, cereals and homemade pancakes. However one of the best breakfasts has to be in New York, where you will find the best bagels in the world.

A traditional German breakfast
The traditional first meal of the day in Germany usually consists of wursts, a variety of yummy local cheeses and freshly baked breads. And, the normal fare for a German breakfast is all washed back with a delicious coffee.

An Indian breakfast
Indian breakfast cuisine varies hugely depending on the region, but it is often similar to lunch or dinner. A breakfast plate in South India may consist of vegetable stew with lentil and rice bread, while breakfast in central India will be a thick pancake served with different dips and chutneys.

A Turkish breakfast
Turkey certainly has an exotic breakfast meal. A typical breakfast will include cheese, olives, tomatoes, boiled eggs, cucumbers, bread, jam, honey and spicy meat. A more traditional Turkish breakfast will also include menemen.

Breakfast in Mexico
A delicious, spicy breakfast is the norm in Mexico. A delightful Mexican breakfast plate may often have ingredients such as tortillas, eggs, cheese, beans and sauces. Another common breakfast item is chilaquiles – fried corn tortilla chips topped with green or red salsa, eggs, chicken, cheese and refried beans.

Polish breakfast
Known locally as Jajecznica, a traditional Polish breakfast includes scrambled eggs covered with slices of custom-made kielbasa (a sausage) and joined by two potato pancakes.

Breakfast in China
Breakfast is a lot like lunch and dinner in China, so you can expect food items like noodles, dumplings, and rice in vegetable soup. A popular comfort food and breakfast cuisine in China is congee (rice porridge), it can be eaten plain or topped with ground meat or squid.

Breakfast can be a tricky meal, some people won’t leave the house without their daily morning nourishment and others never eat because of lack of appetite or time. Hopefully this variety of delicious breakfast meals may even inspire you to travel the world.

14 Things that airport security finds unacceptable

The truth is that before you get through the security gates, you are officially considered a “bad person”! It is your job to prove to them that you are in fact a good person according to The Book of Airplane Law. Here are some things to try and convince security that you’re probably okay…

- Don’t do cartwheels
Taking a flight can be extremely exciting, but that by no means makes it acceptable to try and do a cartwheel in delight! It’s very hard to access a potential threat if they keep spinning upside down.

- Don’t push into the queue
Yes, down at the bar it’s acceptable to push that old guy out the way and try to get served first. However, if you’re late for your flight: tough! Shoving ahead of people can draw attention to yourself and security will probably target you first.

- Don’t react if you see a bee
Okay, so a bee starts hovering around your face, and it doesn't seem to be interested in attacking anyone else but you. That doesn't mean that is a good idea to make sudden movements around security because you might get tasered instead of stung!

- Don’t mimic the security guards
We naturally tend to mirror each other, but you should probably avoid doing this around security guards, because it may seem like you are making fun of them. An overworked guard really won’t appreciate you trying to copy their frowning expression.

- Don’t smoke
Smoking might be your favourite thing to do in the whole world, but guess what, security guards aren't allowed to smoke at all when they’re on duty. You don’t want a crazy jealous security guard to see you puffing away.
- Don’t tell the security guard to take off your coat and belt
The security guards at the airport are not your personal butlers, so don’t demand that they take your coat and belt off for you. It’s simply not the most appropriate setting at all!

- Don’t be medicated
It’s tempting to want to self-medicate before you get on your flight, but you may get into trouble due to the fact that you can’t take your shoes off without bursting into laughter.

- Don’t skip a shower
You see the airport security guards? They don’t really appreciate it when you walk through the security scanner and set it off because you smell so bad (that won’t really happen). To avoid this, simply take a shower before your flight and wear a decent pair of clean clothes!

- Don’t take off your pants
You may want to show off your bronzed and athlete legs, but nobody at security wants to see them! The only item of clothing you need to take of when you pass is your belt. If you pants can’t stay up without a belt, it is recommended that you hold them up with your hands.

- Don’t ask too many questions
Simple: it’s annoying and unnecessary. Don’t ask pointless questions that don’t need to be asked in the first place. Keep quiet.

- Don’t sneeze
This one is more of a warning for all those loud, crazy sneezers out there. If your sneezes sound like you’re screaming bloody murder, then try and keep them under control until you’re passed security. Think about it – what would security think when they see you shouting in the airport.

- Don’t sing or hum
If you like singing, keep it for when you are at home. The security guards won’t enjoy your voice no matter how beautiful it is. Plus do you really want to draw attention to yourself as the weird singing lady? No, because that may end up getting you a random search.

- Don’t try murder any mosquitoes
Yes, you’re supposed to murder any mosquitoes that come anywhere within your range, but slapping your hands together randomly and shouting “Got you!” just invites security over to turn your words around on you.
- Don’t behave like a normal human being
Don’t breathe, don’t eat, don’t fall asleep, don’t move, don’t fall in love, don’t touch anything, just don’t! It will all be over soon enough and you can leave airport security behind you and get on with your normal life.

Airport security is a nuisance that travelers just have to accept. If you want to fly around the world safely, you’re just going to have to put up with it. The best thing you can do is get through security as quickly and painlessly as possible.

10 of the most annoying people you see at the airport

In a perfect world, airline travel would be stress free, all passengers and airport workers would be polite and delays wouldn't exist. We’d also all be holding hands, singing and dancing while waiting for our flights. But since none of that is going to happen anytime soon, let’s work on some things that we can change.

We all have our irritations when it comes to other people’s behavior. If you see yourself on the list below, it’s a good time to own up…

1. The person who doesn't realise water is a liquid
A liquid could also mean moisturizer, coffee, soup, shower gel – just about anything that is an actual liquid really. The liquid smuggler likes to hold up the security line with their illegal cream soda and banned milkshake. They can usually be heard saying, “Oh, I totally forgot that was even in there.”

2. The person who hasn't been on a plane since 2000
We all know what happened in 2001. Laptops and liquids need to be taken out; shoes need to come off etc. This particular person doesn't seem to realise that you can’t just walk up to the departure gate anymore. They can usually be found surrounded by security personnel, who have to try and use diagrams and sometimes puppets to explain the rules to them.

3. The person who puts their bag before humanity
This person also goes by the name of Seat Hog. This traveler believes their carry-on, coat and shopping bags all deserve their own seat. Old ladies and frail people, we’re looking at you!

4. The person who forgets they’re at the airport to actually take a flight
This person is usually found drinking it up at the airport bar. They are currently the subject of a new type of phenomenon – passenger shaming. Well, at least at Amsterdam’s Schiphol airport they do… they announce the offending passengers name followed by, “You are delaying the flight! Immediate boarding please at gate XYZ or we will proceed to offload your luggage!” Oh, those darn Dutch.

5. The person who thinks the flight is going to leave without them
This person is usually skulking directly in front of the boarding gate, waiting for the first sign of movement towards boarding the plane. They can also be found hounding the gate agent for early boarding or seat upgrades, usually they can be heard saying, “I've got a nervous tic syndrome/scoliosis – I NEED to get on the plane early to settle myself.”

6. The person with free range kids
This person has given up on the enforcement side of parenting, they occupy a wondrous zone somewhat between oblivion and neglect, not realising or caring the havoc their spawn are creating. If this sounds like you and your children, make sure you read up about how to keep them – or you – busy.

7. The person who doesn't understand how escalators work
This person can usually be found scratching their head and looking confused at the top or bottom of the escalator. This particular person suffers from a similar ailment – blocking the path of people behind them and hogging the entire width of the moving walkway.  

8. The person who thinks the airport is an extension of their living room
This person can be spotted with their shoes off and their feet leaning on whatever structure is handy – probably the seat across from them. This type of annoying passenger generally leaves their coffee cup and MacDonald’s packet scattered on the floor when they finally board. They are in firm belief that their mother does indeed work at the airport and clean up after them.

9. The person with the emotional baggage
This person suffers from the most foul of ailments – the need to hog the baggage carousel. They can be spotted at the exact point where the baggage exists the carousel, loudly cursing when theirs is not the first out of the chute. Similarly this person is also prone to extended bouts of baggage confusion, like picking up luggage that isn't theirs, then throwing it back in disgust.

10. The person who has everything together
This person is seen gliding effortlessly through the airport, fashionably dressed, while they exude an unassuming confidence. Doors seem to open for them, they whisk through the security line and they get upgraded without even asking. They always have their boarding pass and passport at the ready, open to the identification page… in short they are the absolute perfect passenger, and that’s why they’re annoying!

Do you notice any similarities between you and any of these annoying people at the airport? If so, you might want to get that sorted out right away! What annoying behaviour have you seen at the airport?

The World’s Most Unusual Streets

If you think the streets and road signs here in the Mother City are confusing, you are mistaken. There are many, many other streets in the world that are incredibly strange and may cause traffic hold-ups. Here are 5 of the most unusual streets in the world…

Lombard Street, San Francisco
If you are a professional race car driver – stay away from Lombard Street in San Francisco! The start of this weird street consists of 7 hairpin turns situated only a few hundred metres away from each other. The road was built in this way to make it a bit less steep for transport to drive through safely. It is called the most crooked street in the world.

The Magic Roundabout, UK
Driving always needs to be safe. Nevertheless, from time to time we face difficulties on the road. One of the most unique junctions in the world is in Swindon, it consists of 5 roundabouts that almost resembles a maze that drivers have to solve. The worst part of all of this is that drivers must ride the central roundabout in the opposite direction to the smaller roundabout. This is truly a hellish place for skilled drivers and a total nightmare for learners.

Yonge Street, Canada
The longest street in the world is located in Canada. It is about 1,178 miles long and the project is called an event of National Historic Significance. The street was actually included in the Guinness Book, however, in the 1990s some changes were made and the street was excluded from the book. No matter, people still consider it to be the longest street.

9 de Julio, Buenos Aires
The widest street in the world is in Buenos Aires and it is made up of 9 lanes. It takes about 300 feet for pedestrians to cross the road to get to the opposite side. The middle part of the street is actually decorated with stunning gardens, squares and monuments.

Putrajaya, Malaysia
Can you imagine a roundabout with a huge forest in the middle? Well, such a place exists in Malaysia. There is no other roundabout in the world that is as large as this one! It is almost 2.11 miles around and is next to another tourist destination, the Malaysian Prime Minister’s office.

Have a look at these strange streets around the world and maybe you will get curious enough to have a trip to go and see the with your own eyes!

Five Ridiculous Myths about Air Travel

There’s something annoying about people believing all these air travel misconceptions, I mean people complain all the time about how dangerous driving a car is, but then they’ll be too afraid to get onto a plane! So, humans may have evolved to walk, but we have learnt to fly… Here are some myths that really need to die:

#5 Pilots Make Tons of Money
Pilots are well known to be up there with doctors and lawyers, except did you know that ticket prices have actually declined because pilots’ salaries have also declined 42% in the past three decades? Pilots make a lot less then you think they do.

You can cut a pilots pay to the point where they’re so overworked they push the wrong button due to sheer fatigue and crash into a building, but they’re still going to be lining up to fly – because they have to. It’s up to us to not be people who take advantage of some of the rare people in the world who have a real passion for something, like flying.

#4 Flight Attendants = Sky Waitresses/Waiters
Imagine if you had to deal with the public every day. Now imagine having to deal with the public every day after they've had a round of drinks. Now add in a soundtrack in the background of crying babies and people talking and laughing loudly. Now lastly, set this all in a small enclosed space. Imagine being a flight attendant, you’d have to smile the whole time and selflessly leap to the aid of everyone.

Becoming a flight attendant is tough enough in the first place, I mean, you have to pass several interviews, go through months of training and endless tests. Not to mention, if you are late once, you’re gone! Too many people look at the job and say, “oh, I could easily do that: it’s just waitressing.” This is why you should give them a sizeable tip and just be nice!

#3 Flying is Expensive
It really isn't, did you know that you can get tickets on discount airlines for a price that is almost too cheap? Did you know that if you stupidly arrive late for your miraculously cheap flight that you should only blame yourself.

Prices for airline tickets have really plummeted since 1980, because flying used to be expensive, much as it used to be something people didn't take for granted. There might be a correlation there, so if you find yourself thinking of flying as just another common travel option and one that should be cheaper, then odds are it already is.

#2 Disasters Have Simple Causes
You are not going to die, just because you get onto a plane. The only way that turbulence is going to bring down your airliner is if it’s the final straw in an improbable chain of events that your could live for literally 123,000 years and never see.

All you have to do is look at the serious incidents and see that there was a whole host of things that precluded the factors that lead to a full-on tragedy. Things like crew training, aircraft design and safety procedures all prevent your death.

#1 Flying is Less Safe than any Other Form of Travel
If you are afraid of flying, you might as well be afraid of pillows, marshmallows and flowers and other things that could technically kill you, but most certainly won’t. Statistically, motorbikes are exactly as dangerous as you think they are. And vans kill thousands, yet are twice as safe as cars. And very few people die on buses. All driving is safer than walking or biking. And cars… tens of thousands of people die every year in car accidents, and several thousand pedestrians with them. The only reason air travel seems so dangerous is because you hear about literally every single incident.

The more convenient a form of transport is the less safe it likely is. Did you know that, you are 65 times more likely to die in a car than in a plane? Oh, and while air crashes are never single-factor, being in a car accident is terrifyingly easy.

Do you know someone who has been in a plane crash? Odds are that you don’t. But, you probably know someone who has been in a car crash, or you were in a car crash. We are way too afraid of airplanes, and not even close to afraid enough of cars.
