Traveling Like a President

Traveling Like a President

What takes 200 hotel rooms, four jets, five helicopters and 35 motorcade vehicles?

A typical presidential trip, according to The Travel Channel, which goes behind the scenes in its special “Travel Like a President,” set to air Tuesday.

Andy Singer, the network’s general manager, says the show is “designed to give viewers an all-access, unprecedented look at the enormous level of detail and thought that comes with the territory when you are the leader of the free world.”

It looks at famed presidential accommodations, such as the Waldorf in New York, and follows President Obama during a vacation to Hawaii.

Among those interviewed for the show are insiders from previous administrations, including Andy Card and Mike McCurry. Also interviewed are Eric Lesser, a former assistant to David Axelrod; Gregg Pitts, White House travel director under George W. Bush; and Dan Bongino, a 12-year Secret Service veteran.

“It’s meant to be informative yet entertaining…and perhaps inspire our viewers to embark on their very own presidential trip,” Singer said.

All they would need is 200 hotel rooms, four jets, five helicopters, 35 motorcade vehicles and, oh, yeah, a president.

Flying Private is Becoming Affordable

Flying Private is Becoming Affordable

Private air travel is on the rise. Traveling private allows you to forego many of the troubles of flying commercial and is altogether more luxurious.

While traveling private, exclusively, isn’t attainable for most, you can take advantage of something called “empty legs.” Empty legs are the FLIGHTS in which a private jet may be traveling from a destination back to its home base.
