The climate bill will cut greenhouse gas emissions by 17 % by 2020, and by 83% by mid century. That sounds impressive, but it will actually accomplish so much more. For example, according to the Environmental Protection Agency, the average consumer will pay between and 0 more per year for energy, while the Congressional Budget Office estimates the amount to be closer to 5 per year. Barack Obama says it will cost an average American the cost of a postage stamp, which comes out to roughly 0 each year. Of course, I wouldn’t put much stock in his estimates. After all, this is the same person who said his healthcare plan would cost 4 billion, only to have members of Congress estimate the price at .5 trillion.
Having enough currency is also important. Depending on where you’re going you might need Euros, or Dollars, but you might need a less popular currency that takes time to be sourced from your travel agent or bank. You’ll need to arrange your currency well before you so that you have it before you need it.
It’s important to make sure you have all passports and any necessary visas well in advance too. It will take longer for applications to be processed during the busy times of year, and you don’t want to miss out on your holiday because you didn’t get organised far enough in advance.
Deciding when you want to go can also be difficult. Going during school holidays will mean that the prices are much higher, but you won’t need to take your children out of school, so they won’t miss any lessons. Perhaps you’ll go earlier or later in the year, rather than during the summer holidays.
