The divergent moments of Levy flights are often considered as a handicap for using this model in physics. The remedy is introducing the space‐time coupling, i.e. taking into account that in most applications a long step takes longer time to perform. The chapter starts from discussing different coupling schemes, and than concentrates on a special model, Levy walk, in which the time cost is proportional to a distance covered. A further generalization is given by a model where such Levy walk is interrupted by rests due to trapping events. Both Levy walks and walks interrupted by rests are relevant for description of experimental situations which are also shortly discussed.

Keywords:   space‐time coupled CTRW, Levy walks, Levy walks with rests, transport
