Shopping for Vacation Deals

There are numerous ways to get great travel deals, both domestic and international. Today, I would like to share a few of these resourceful means with you. First, if you are a frequent flyer, I assume that your are fully aware of the frequent-traveler miles privilege. For individuals who might not be aware of this program, this is how it works: when you sign up, the rules allow you to use points you have awarded each time you travel to buy tickets for yourself and traveling family members only. It does not allow you to transfer points otherwise.

Other means of obtaining travel discount include signing up for free travel deals newsletter. With these newsletters, you will be able to capitalize on subscribers benefits such as insider top travel deals and last minutes email alert deals. You may also sign up to get weekly low fares exclusive deals send straight to your email inbox. Lowfares.com exclusive hot deals, is one of such websites or links that you may visit to sign up.

Please be aware that some auto insurance companies, telephone companies, and even credit card companies do provide you with some form of travel discount opportunities on which you can capitalize. As far as credit card is concerned, each time you use your credit card, you are awarded points, based on the rules of the credit card companies that allow such benefits.

Each credit card company may have a different system of awarding points. Whenever you accumulate sufficient points, you can redeem them for cash, gifts, donate the equivalent cash amount to charity or use them towards the purchase of airline tickets. Geico insurance company for example, frequently allows customers weekly travel and hotel discounts.

If you travel to the Caribbean on a regular basis, you might consider becoming a member of the Air Caribbean -- 7th Heaven Rewards Frequent Flyer Reward Program. Also, I know for sure that only a few people knew that you can fly first-class to Hawaii at a 60% discount or more off the advertised fare. The secret to this is simple; Instead of calling the airline or booking the flight directly via the internet, you should call the airline's "Vacation" department instead.

The discount often varies from one airline to another. However, this approach allows you to secure a discount most of the time, for other vacation spots as well. Finally, information on travel deals can also be found on social networking sites such as the following:

  • Pinterest
  • Youtube
  • Facebook
  • Google+
  • Linkedin
  • Twitter
  • Tumblr
  • Diggs
  • Instagram
  • Ask.fm
  • Del.icio.us
  • Reddit
  • stumbleupon
  • Propeller
  • Mixx
  • myspace, and other.

Also, the earlier you plan your vacation or trip, the better the chance of you saving an enormous amount on your travel package. If you can, plan your trip ahead of time, this will give you more time to shop around for travel deals. Also, from my personal experience, most of the time, airline tickets cost far more the closer it gets to the time of your anticipated departure. If you plan on departing on certain days of the week such as mid-week, this is far better than departing on Fridays, Saturdays or Sundays, in terms of saving.
