  • Welcome back to love English. So, today I'm going to be going through some

  • travel phrasal verbs, essential travel phrasal verbs. Covering some of the more

  • basic and some of the more advanced. Now as you can see I am in fact on holiday

  • in... if you haven't guessed it already, Rome! So this seems to be the most

  • appropriate place to go through those travel phrasal verbs with you.

  • So, starting with some of the more basic now. I'm sure many of you already know the phrasal verb to

  • take off. When we are referring to an aeroplane leaving .So, the plane took off.

  • What time does the plane take off? That's a nice simple one.

  • Now it's less common.

  • We usually say land but you can say touch down. This is perhaps more

  • frequently used in America. I would say that the Brits don't really use this

  • phrasal verb too much. But when you say the plane has a touched down, you would say

  • it's landed. But again not so common. Right one of the most common phrasal

  • verbs to get away. This is both a phrasal verb and it can be used as a noun, I need

  • a get away. So, to get away literally means to escape your normal life, working days

  • and have a holiday. You might even say I really need to get away. Meaning I really

  • need a holiday.

  • Now, a more advanced phrasal verb would be to set off. You

  • could also say set out. So, if you set off you literally start your journey, you

  • begin at your travels. So, you might say to somebody what time are you setting

  • off? What time are you leaving for your trip? Now another phrasal verb with off

  • is to see off and this I'm sure has happened to you if you've been travelling.

  • Usually your parents will see you off this literally means that they take you

  • to the airport, the train station, the bus station and they wave goodbye and see

  • you on your way. So, to see somebody off. Usually a very nice thing to do.

  • On the opposite side, you would have pick up. So, pick up means to collect to take

  • somebody from one place to another and in this case you might have your parents

  • picking you up from the airport. Meeting at you there to collect you and

  • take you home. So, to pick up. Now in a similar way we can also have drop off. So,

  • you can drop off at your bags at the check-in, at the airport, but you can also

  • drop somebody off at the airport. So, pick up and drop off. Now drop off just

  • implies that you're left there when you see somebody off you're waving goodbye

  • and making sure that they are okay and they've got their plane okay. So, to drop

  • somebody off, to pick somebody up and to see someone off.

  • Now check, check in and check out, very important two phrasal verbs for you

  • pretty basic but you need to know them. To check in both at a hotel and of

  • course an airport. Is to register, to give your details to confirm that you

  • are taking that flight or indeed that you are registering to stay in the hotel

  • for that night. So, to check in. To check out, not something you do at an airport

  • but it is of course at a hotel. When you check out of a hotel you would pay any

  • extras that you've had from the minibar and confirm that you have left.

  • Usually checkout times quite early as well about 11:00, so when you see that,

  • what the checkout time is, you know that that's the time you need to leave the

  • hotel. So, check in check out.

  • When we talk generally about arriving..what time

  • did you get there? We would say turn up. So, what time did he turn up. Now when it

  • comes to traveling we usually refer to the transportation that we are taking

  • and in this case we'd be using get in. What time does your train get in? Meaning...

  • What time does your train arrive? You wouldn't say.. ''what time does your train

  • turn up. You can also use it for flights, What time does your flight get in?

  • What time does your flight arrive?

  • Now, unfortunately travel doesn't always

  • go to plan and there are often many delays. In this case we also have a

  • phrasal verb you can be held up. So, my train was held up at another station. My

  • flight was delayed. I was held up because my flight was delayed. So, to hold up to

  • be held up (in the passive form) means that you have been delayed.

  • Now, referring to transportation, when we travel we often use public transportation and this

  • is an important point to note. The prepositions in and on, off and out are

  • used when we are referring to public and private transportation. So, when you are

  • getting public transportation, you get on a plane, you get on the train, you get on

  • a bus, you get on a coach. These are public transportation. However, when you

  • are using private, you get in a car, you get in a taxi. A taxi is a form of

  • private transportation but you would get out of a taxi and you would get off a

  • plane. So, in get in private transportation. Get off public transportation.

  • Right, now we don't always have the luxury of going directly to our

  • destination, nor do we always want it. Sometimes we do actually want to have a

  • detour. Stop over. So, to stop over to have a stop over noun or phrasal verb is

  • to basically have a detour to stop (pause/break) somewhere. So, you might stop over if you

  • have a particularly long flight. So, for example if you're traveling from England

  • to Australia, you often have a stopover in somewhere like Asia, Singapore, Hong Kong.

  • Similarly, we can also call this a lay over. So, when the flights is stopped

  • at one Airport while you wait to refuel or indeed get another flight. So, you have

  • stop over and lay over. Right, that's it. I hope those phrasal verbs will prove

  • useful. Try writing some sentences in the comment box below remember practice

  • makes perfect and you'll only learn these verbs if you use them. Thank you
