2019 is the year to year MORE, YAY or NAY?! YAY —obviously!
This is for the wanderlust-er in YOU.
2018 may not have been your most successful travel year yet, or maybe, it was and, you’ve realized the travel bug, has bit you hard!! Either way, these are savvy tips to help you get to more destinations with less in your pocket!
Don’t second guess yourself, stop worry so much about why you CAN’T go on a trip right now & just do it!
When you find an unreal deal - TAKE IT!
You may have heard that the best time to buy a flight is on Tuesday or, six weeks in advance is the sweet spot. At the end of the day, the BEST time to buy is when a deal pops up! Don’t wait to share it with a friend or verify if you have the time off work, or proper finances… YOU’LL sort it out! JUST BOOK IT!
Don’t believe that you can never get your money back on travel expenses
Even non-refundable flights have a 24-hour refund window. If you book then change your mind, you can cancel the entire thing like it never happened. Also, some airlines will work with you to reimburse the cost of any subsequent price drop after you purchase, and will refund your fare if there’s a delay or change in the itinerary that was due to the airline.
Planning your trip activities in advance = planning your budget more realistically
A great resource for tours & day trip planning is Viator Travel. They mostly have day-tours but, there are many overnight & multi-day tours on the site also.
If you’re looking for an activity form a locals perspective, Airbnb now hosts tours too!
Don’t always opt for a round-trip flight
Roundtrips have long been preferred in the booking process, however, I’m an advocate of one-way flights because… You get more value for point redemptions when booking award travel & you can customize your itinerary to add international connections! This will give you the flexibility to book your trip, making your own travel lay-over plan cheaper.
