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

these verbs if you use them. Thank you very much for watching and don’t forget
