Travel tips of this week
So we’ve taken the time to do a little extra research. Well! you are in luck, the travel research has been done for you, all you have to do is be willing to keep reading. Before you know it, you’ll be taking more beach trips of your life, for a steeply discounted price. So here we go:
1) Buy it used. Well, not really used: more like discounted (check Gumtree or Craigslist), often people can post their homes flights opportunities up at real discounts on these sites and most don’t even know you can find a home cheaper than on sites like Airbnb but yes be careful when sending money to anyone, check reviews and check forum posts or ask for video’s and guests you can contact if unsure Most will be on other home booking sites and connected to TripAdvisor so you can read about the property. Did you know that there are all sorts of people out there who own time shares but can’t use them for various reasons? Maybe the season isn’t right, or they can’t seem to get the flight that they need and so they would be willing to sell it to you for a discount and make some money since they had to pay upfront for their timeshare. Ebay has a thriving market for timeshare opportunities. A lot of the listings are permanent (e.g. people looking for others to buy their times shares out completely), but sometimes people are just looking to monetise a weeks worth of timeshare that they can’t seem to use themselves. Their loss can be your opportunity. Ebay/Craigslist and Gumtree are an auction and opportunity for such, and the highest price wins usually but be prepared to banter for a bargain.
2) Compare everything. Guess what? Expedia and Orbitz seem like they are juggernauts of internet travel and they control a lot of the market. BUT, they don’t have every vendor available. A lot of the discount airlines like SouthWest and JetBlue don’t use either of these massive companies and you can only get their deals by going directly to their website. Don’t tell anyone, but from what we’ve heard JetBlue is supposed to have really nice seats and monitors on new planes with really good prices. We haven’t used JetBlue ourselves yet and will this summer on a flight to Aruba via JFK, but it’s supposed be really good (especially at delivering good value on Northeast to Florida routes). That tip alone could save you some bucks while getting you a really nice flight. Keeping that in mind, Jet2, Ryanair and EasyJet are Europes top budget carries and offer some amazing deals if you check on Momondo or click the banner below for some fab prices on flights to Nice, Greece or to the sunny Islands of the Canaries.
3) The first 2 points are perfectly valid in any trip planning but almost worthless when you consider that you might have to shell out a lot more bucks for destinations abroad. There is a beautiful beach state located not too far from anyone East of the Mississippi. That’s right. Florida is back and it’s beaches are still fantastic, still beautiful and you have a mix of nightlife, restaurants, Space centre to Disney themed parks to keep you busy. There has been a lot of development of Florida during the last 50 years, but Florida is still a massive state with plenty of undiscovered beaches. The state of Florida can be great if you know where to look. It’s pretty nice. Trust us!! on the undiscovered spots of Florida can really be something else. However, they are becoming more and more difficult to find as thousands of people move to Florida every month.
