Your weekly roundup of the hottest travel links across the net:
1. A lot of subscriptions are purchased with good intentions but often end up going unused – magazines that you never get around to reading and gyms that you never get around to visiting are two that spring to mind. But what if your subscription was to an airline? A new company called Surf Air, which hopes to launch later this year, plans to offer an all-you-can-fly ticket to travelers. The subscriptions for unlimited monthly domestic flights will start at $790 per month.

The thing is, most of these apps cater to adults and not necessarily the children who often accompany them. If you’re searching for a way to occupy, educate, or entertain your kids during a vacation, this post about the best travel apps for kids is a great place to start.
