While most millennial travelers know Hotels.com and Queer Eye’s Jonathan Van Ness individually, it’s time to think of them together with a 10-night comedy series, released on Netflix in November. Dubbed a “cheeky comedy series,” Van Ness explores his dreams of becoming a stand-up comedian, with a docuseries-style reality show to follow.

 

The 10-night tour kicked off in Brooklyn, New York, in early September and continued to spread the confidence and love Queer Eye has become known for through Van Ness’s, and his uplifting costars’, fun, empowering personalities.

 

Hotels.com followed the comedy tour to give audiences an inside look at the inner workings of stand-up comedy and the hilarious, yet lovable, television personality’s sassy brand. Expect cameras on the experience from beginning to end, including flights, hotel rooms, camera confessionals and trudging through the comedy world.

 

The four-episode comedy series will premier to 20 lucky fans who win the chance to attend a premier party screening with its Hotels.com rewards.

 

You may also remember Van Ness from his Emmy-nominated Funny or Die web series, Gay of Thrones, where he recapped HBO’s incredibly popular Game of Thrones episodes.

Bitter Cocktail Bar, Barcelona

Barcelona has seen a recent influx of craft cocktails bars within the past five years or so, and Sant Antoni seems to be one of the city’s epicenters of such swanky watering holes.

Enjoy the Open Road on Your Terms

For most of us, time in the car is “me time.” You can listen to that podcast you’re captivated by, blast that pop song and sing along at the top of your lungs or listen to the next chapter in that biography e-book you’re almost finished. A road trip only amplifies those opportunities. So, next time you’re traveling by road, take the wheel and take control. Opt for a rental car on your next vacation, rather than a rideshare, taxi or public transportation, and enjoy the open road on your own terms.

3 Gifts Travelers Want

Friends and family members of travelers are always looking for the right gift. It’s hard to find something that will surprise a traveler and also be something they use often.

Gift giving can be difficult for some that don’t know what a traveler is looking for or needs, but these three gifts are a great starting point.

Leave Troublesome Rideshare Worries Behind

We can see it now and remember when it happened to us: Watching as the black car icon loops around and around, seemingly endlessly, and our wait time on the rideshare app continually changes. Long wait times and confused drivers are just a few bothersome issues that can nag at rideshare users. Need a solution? Ditch rideshares altogether in favor of renting a car on your next trip.
