If something goes wrong when you’re traveling — a lost confirmation number, a mixed-up reservation, a bad hotel experience — it can easily seem like the cards are stacked against you. But there’s one travel journalist who has dedicated his career to helping people get the service they deserve when away from home: Christopher Elliott.
Elliot has been called one of the world’s leading travel experts. He is National Geographic Traveler magazine’s reader advocate, and writes the syndicated Travel Troubleshooter column, which appears in more than 50 U.S. newspapers and Web sites.
I had the chance to talk to the guru himself, and get the scoop on getting what you deserve. Elliott graciously gave us some of his time to talk about himself, his career, and a traveler’s best friend: common sense. So sit back, relax, and enjoy the latest Friendly Planet Travel podcast with Chris Elliott.

I was perusing the Washington Posts’ Travel Talk feature yesterday when I saw a question about our India trip!
Two soon-to-be-first-time Friendly Planeteers just booked their Taj Mahal Express trip, and wanted to know some more detail about Air India. This is a great question, since travelers will be spending a good 14 hours each way on an Air India flight.
Having just recently flown Air India myself, I commented on the article to hopefully give two of our newest members a better idea of the flights they’ll be taking. Take a look. If you’ve flown to India with Friendly Planet Travel, what was your experience like?
