How to Travel for Cheap
We all know traveling can get costly. However, there are various ways to not break the bank to do it. If I can travel as much as I do then so can you. In this post, I'm going to give you some tips on the different services I use to book my trips. I never fly anywhere without having some sort of deal on flights and hotels. Have a birthday coming up but don't know where to go? Need a vacation from work? These are the top 3 sites I use.
1. Secret Flying
Secret Flying is a website that allows you to book inexpensive flights anywhere in the world with a given time frame. I personally use this site when I want to go on a trip within the next few months and don't have a destination in mind. The only catch, is that each deal is accurate when published so if you are viewing a deal at a later date the price could change; therefore, you have to be quick. Secret Flying also has a FREE smartphone App that you can download to receive instant flight deal alerts.
2. Sky Scanner
Sky Scanner is another great site where you can book cheap flights and even hotels as well. What I like most about Sky Scanner is their flight price map. I once booked a trip to Puerto Rico but they were experiencing earthquakes so I had to change the trip last minute. Using a map like this is great for last minute trip destinations. A unique feature about this site is that it gives you a graph of when the flights will go up on which days. This is especially good for people wanting to book trips with a group because everyone might not be able to pay at the same time. Sky Scanner also has an App.
Hopper is an app that can be downloaded to your phone that lets you when prices will drop. It also does the same thing for hotels. What's cool about Hopper is that for every booking, they plant up to four trees for FREE as part of their carbon offset program.
Often times we say we want to do certain things and we think it's easier said than done. We all make resolutions of how we want to travel more without knowing that there's a ton of information out there that can make it easy for you. So if you're reading this, I challenge you to try using one of these sites and take that trip you've been waiting for. All the resources you need to get the best prices are at your fingertips.
