W: Nigel, what kind of mistakes do inexperienced travelers make?

女:奈杰尔,没有经验的旅行者会犯什么样的错误?
M: The first mistake business travelers make is to take far too much luggage.
男:商务旅行者常犯的第一个错误就是带太多行李。
M: Remember, take only carry-on luggage, because at most airports, you can get away with two small bags.
男:记住,只带随身行李,因为在大多数机场,只拿两个小包你就可以很轻松。
W: Oh, I see.
女:哦,我明白了。
M: Another mistake people make is to think that you have to pay full price for air tickets. You should find out about the different ticket options.
男:人们犯的另一个错误是认为必须付全价买机票。应该多了解不同的机票。
M: For example, an RTW fare can save up to 40% on normal fare.
男:例如,寰宇一家套票比正常票价便宜将近40%。
W: Excuse me, what is RTW?
女:不好意思,什么是寰宇一家?
M: Round the World. For example, if you're going to Australia from the USA, you could go out via Singapore, and come back via North America.
男:就是环球航行。例如,如果你要从美国去澳大利亚,你可以通过新加坡,然后经由北美回来。
M: And another way to save money is to see if the ticket to a destination beyond is cheaper.
男:另一种省钱的方法是看是否有到目的地之外的更便宜的机票。
M: For example, a ticket from Amsterdam from London to New York may be cheaper than one straight from London to New York.
男:例如,从阿姆斯特丹到伦敦再到纽约的机票可能比从伦敦直飞纽约的机票便宜。
W: Oh, that's very useful information.
女:哦,这个信息非常有用。
M: And another mistake is to go away for too long. Most people's efficiency and energy start to fall off after two weeks away.
男:另一个错误是出门太久。大多数人两周之后会开始效率下降,精神不振。
M: So my advice is "Keep your trip short", only go for two weeks and never for a longer than three.
男:所以我的建议是“旅行时间不要过长”,只去两个星期,不要超过三个星期。
M: Another point is "Don't expect everything to go according to plan". You need to learn to expect the unexpected.
男:还有一点是“不要期望一切按计划进行”。你需要学会预料意料之外的事情。
M: There may be a typhoon in summer or your taxi may break down on the way to the airport.
男:夏天可能会有台风,你的出租车可能会在去机场的路上抛锚。
M: In other words, don't be optimistic about plans and don't schedule important meetings too closely together.
男:换句话说,不要对计划过于乐观,也不要把重要的会议安排得太紧。
M: You need to allow time for delays and break-downs.
男:你需要为延时和故障预留时间。
W: Yeah, this is something travelers have to remember when they plan their trips.
女:是的,这是旅行者在计划行程时必须记住的事情。
M: And another thing, get to know a good travel agent and make sure he gives you the best possible service.
男:还有一件事,了解好的旅行社,确保他给你最好的服务。
M: Take discounts for example, a good travel agent can get first-class ticket for the price of business-class.
男:以折扣为例,一个好的旅行社可以以商务舱的票价拿到头等舱机票。
M: This is because he does enough volume of business and he can get discounts with airlines on his own behalf.
男:这是因为他有足够的业务量,他可以自己得到航空公司的折扣。
M: He should pass them on to you. So make sure he indeed does.
男:他应该把这个折扣转给你。所以要确保他确实做到了。
W: I think the worst part of a trip is having to travel overnight or being stuck for a weekend in some dreadful place.
女:我认为旅行中最糟糕的部分就是不得不连夜赶路,或者在某个糟糕的地方逗留一个周末。
W: Are there any ways avoiding that?
女:有什么办法可以避免吗?
M: Yes. We can break or stop over in a more relaxing or lively place. It's often available at special cheap weekend rate.
男:有。我们可以在一个更轻松、更热闹的地方休息或逗留。周末价格通常特别便宜。
M: Various airlines and hotel chains offer these. And it's always more pleasant to stay a night in a hotel than on a plane even if you travel business-class.
男:各种航空公司和连锁酒店都提供这些服务。即使你在酒店住一晚,也比坐在商务舱里连夜赶路愉快得多。
W: Yes. OK, thank you, Nigel, for all the useful information and advice.
女:是的。好的,谢谢你,奈杰尔,感谢你提供的所有有用的信息和建议。
M: Pleasure!
男:很高兴与大家分享。
