Travel Recommendations

I’m traveling to Fortaleza, Brazil. Is it a safe place to travel as an American? Any advice or tips would be helpful. Thanks in advance for any help.

Fortaleza is dangerous. As a Brazilian I’d not feel comfortable unless i knew a local there. Do you have a guide?

I travel there regularly and it’s not that dangerous. Obviously you want to stay in the nicer / touristy areas as you are in South America and will stick out like a soar thumb. Sure it can be really dicey in the favelas, but as a tourist you won’t end up there... First time I went I was told it was dangerous and to be low key and on the look out. First night we have dinner at a restaurant and everyone around had Rolexes, Chanel bags, and Ranges.

Anyone else here just really unhappy? We make a good salary, get travel benefits, points, hotel status, car rentals. Something is just still pretty depressing.

Does anyone have creative ways that they are capitalizing on outside sales perks such as: mileage, hotel points, credit card points, etc.? So far my solutions are high mpg vehicle to maximize profit on the 57 cent per mile standard and the American Express Hilton Honors credit card to gain points after the company reimbursement.

I booked a package (hotel+ flight) vacation through Expedia that got cancelled because of Covid, I was able to get my refund for the hotel but I can’t do it for the flight. The airline is telling me they’re gonna give me a credit with them but we were 8 people booking this vacation together, so having a credit makes is impossible ton manage. I Called the bank and they want a written proof that the flight is cancelled but the airline doesn’t want to send us any proof ... what do i do?

Are you incoming staff 1? What’s your starting salary for your city and service line? I’m really skeptical that firms will be paying those of us that progressed less than incoming staff just out of my own experience where I came in as staff 1 earning more than the staff 2 when I started for the same service line.
