1. Be flexible. For many, just the thought of getting away sounds great…the destination is often secondary. Think about it: often times we want to escape to a tropical paradise or hit the slopes. In this case, let the deal be your compass. It’s possible that a trip to Aruba is expensive, while a getaway to St Marteen is much more affordable (and probably a shorter plane ride). It’s also important to avoid traveling on days around major holidays (like July 3, for example). Airlines are notorious for increasing their rates during this time. You’ll save major bucks (and avoid the crowds).
2. Drive there. One way of saving major bucks is to consider a destination that’s drivable. Sometimes, avoiding busy airports, flight delays and baggage fees can be a welcome scenario. If renting a car, don’t automatically purchase the retailer’s rental car insurance. Do some research and look for third-party insurers, like ProtectYourBubble.com. Its rental car protection plan is a great way to cover trip emergencies, cancelations and interruptions, and more for $7.99 per day, as opposed to double or triple that for rental car companies insurance policies.
3. Plan ahead. When booking air travel, the early bird gets the worm…especially during summer months. Many experts recommend booking airfare about three months in advance. It’s also important to plan the day of the week you purchase your airfare. According to studies on the topic, Tuesdays at 3 p.m. are the best time to buy. When planning ahead, pay close attention to what you pack. It’s easy to over pack, but with a little planning (and the help of space-saver bags), it’s likely to all fit into a carry-on suitcase. And that means no checked baggage fees.
4. Seek advice from the concierge. The concierge is your tool to gain insight into dining specials, off the beaten path destinations, local attractions, and tips on what to do. Consulting with the concierge can help you avoid tourist traps (these can be expensive “mistakes”) and scout great deals.
