Out of Town

Gear, services, and info to spruce up your next getaway.

DVD Player Rentals
No matter what your flight itinerary is, it's probably going to take longer than you think this summer. Pass the time with a few movies, thanks to InMotion Entertainment.

Island Hopping
Islands can be the perfect cure for what ails you. Here are three 'best islands' lists.
Travel + Leisure, Top Pick: Bali
Travel Channel, Top Pick: Saint Vincent and the Grenadines
Conde Nast Traveler, Top Pick: Maldives

British Theater
What's playing at the National? Should you see The Five Wives of Maurice Pinder? What about The Pain & The Itch at the Royal Court? Check out What's On Stage for reviews, news, and tickets.

A MUG reader writes, "This is a cool gadget that we take on trips (on the rare occasion we leave fabulous New York) so we don't have to lug around all of our separate device chargers!" TripleCharger

Airline Tickets
Should you buy your plane ticket now? How about now? Farecast forecasts whether the fare is likely to rise or drop if you wait.

Samsonite — no longer the TV game show consolation prize. Their Black Label line is one of the most stylish luggage lines going. You can find designs by Alexander McQueen, a Vintage Collection, and a limited edition reissue of their Fashionaire line.

Noise Canceling Headphones
The Times' David Pogue picks [registration required] the Bose QC3 ($349) but also the Panasonic RP-HC500 ($99 at J & R).
