Going Abroad? (Feb, 1931)
THEN WHY SHOP AROUND FOR YOUR STEAMSHIP RESERVATIONS Your steamship ticket is your admission card to the boat that carries you to foreign shores. Its reservation is your first requirement in preparing for your journey and the earlier you make it, the more your stateroom will approximate your wishes.
Many factors enter into the purchase of a steamship ticket—the line, ship, class, sailing date, speed, and, of course, the cost. Shopping around by the hazardous trial-and-error method is a waste of time and effort.
At American Express offices trained travel men are ready to plan for your comfort and reserve for you any ticket for any ship, any line—at standard prices. Reserving your steamship space in this travel-wise way you can rest assured that the first part of your voyage will equal your expectations.
Then after your steamship ticket is an accomplished fact, your second thought is for your pass- port. The American Express travel man who sold you your ticket will supply you with a passport application blank and aid you in procuring this admission booklet to foreign shores. He will also advise you how to apply for visas, if visas are required for the countries which you intend to visit.
Purchasing your steamship ticket through the American Express Company, and, before leaving for your trip, insuring your travel funds by changing them into American Express Travelers Cheques, entitles you to the services of the Company’s worldwide travel organization while you are en route—to the use of the Company’s foreign offices as your mail and cable addresses, and to the aid of the Company’s interpreters and travel men.
These services are maintained to make your trip carefree, easy and enjoyable.
