Airline Travel - ESL Lesson

by www.elcivics.com

Riding in an airplane is a great way to travel because it is fast and easy. Some people fly to their vacation destination and others fly for business. Plane tickets can be purchased online, by phone, or by using a travel agency. The prices of tickets vary, so it's best to check around and research all your options. If you're flying for vacation, try to plan your trip several months ahead of time so you can get the best deal. You might want to compare vacation packages that include your plane ticket, hotel room, and rental car. (3 pages)
