Online Travel Deals

It is a fact that for many people, traveling has been considered a great way of spending their vacation time — this, despite the fact that a large number of these people also travel extensively for work. Whether you’re traveling for business or pleasure, you should be sure to investigate the variety of online travel deals available at your fingertips. If you don’t, you’re missing a great opportunity for saving money on your travel expenses.

Of course, there are some travelers who have plenty of money and don’t worry about finding the best travel deals; however, if you’re reading this article, we assume you’re not in this camp!

Far and away the most popular place to find online deals these days is through the online travel aggregators such as Expedia, Travelocity, Kayak, and Priceline. Though many of them initially focused solely on one segment of travel (such as flights or hotels only), these sites now offer price comparison shopping for flights, hotels, car rentals, and even package deals combining multiple components. These types of sites scour the internet to try to provide the best deals for any imaginable itinerary — Priceline even offers a ‘name your own price’ option to possibly get even better deals. These

Although the travel aggregators outlined above offer some great deals, don’t overlook the possibility of travel agencies. Many travel agencies advertise their offers online, enabling potential travelers to find their holiday destinations with discount packages. The travel agencies often have deals available that aren’t publicized on the large websites. Sometimes this is due to the agencies finding last minute deals; other times, it is due to the fact that only a limited number of discounted packages are available, and the packages never even get published online.

In addition to the travel aggregators and travel agencies, also consider the possibility of looking for discount travel through vendors directly. For example, if I see a United flight for $300 on Expedia, I sometimes check the same flight on United.com, and find a slightly better fare. The same can be true for hotels and car rentals.

Keep in mind while you’re looking for your travel deals that booking early often times leads to greater discounts. Sure, there is the occasional great last minute deal, but a) those are not the norm, and b) you need to have an extremely flexible travel schedule to take advantage of these deals — that’s not too easy when you’re trying to get your family away during your children’s school spring break!

Find Online Travel Deals

Online travel deals are surprisingly easy to find and easier to land. The trick is finding one that suits your purpose. There’s always a cheaper option available. Rather than focusing solely on the economics, it would serve you better to enquire why the deal is so cheap and what you would be foregoing in order to avail the fabulous low prices. Often you might prefer to pay a bit more and enjoy a modicum of comfort and arrive safe.

The simple secret to getting a good travel deal online is to shop around. Often a you can find price differences between sites. If you are willing to do your homework, a better rate can usually be found. Another well known secret is that if you choose to book during off season periods you will definitely get fabulous rates whether it’s airline fare or an amusement park ticket. The use of certain credit cards for online bookings also helps to get discounts, as those adding up those air miles and points rewards.

Travel arrangements from booking airline tickets to fixing an itinerary, hotel accommodation, tickets for various events and venues are done online these days. The more you surf, the more choices you’re faced with. Eleventh hour bookings have become the norm, and there is a whole genre of travel sites focused on this type of clients. This has indeed grown to be a substantial part of online travel arrangements for most people.

Most of the major online travel sites in the US and Canada, such as Expedia, Travelocity and others, have fantastic package deals that give you more bang for your buck. A package deal does not mean a group tour, but rather a deal where airline tickets, accommodation, and sometimes even a car rental all are “packaged” together for usually a lower price than you would pay for separately.

Booking hotel accommodation online can get you good discounts even at star hotels. Be careful however, some deeply discounted bookings may not be refundable in the event you decide to cancel so always check the fine print. Another option for discounted hotel prices are Hotwire.com and Priceline.com. Both are both popular discount travel sites that offer attractive discounts on hotel rooms. Referring to itself as the king of online travel, the Priceline’s claim to fame is the “name your own price” where the buyers are free to fix their rates for hotel rooms. With either company, you pick the price, quality, amenities, and neighborhood you want, but you are not able to choose a specific hotel. With Priceline, you bid on the hotel which meets your needs. You then find out if the price you choose was accepted and if it was, your hotel is booked. In contrast, when using Hotwire, you don’t bid on your hotel and the prices are displayed.

In all, finding travel deals has never been easier, what you do need to watch out for is the fine print. Do your research, compare prices and always read the terms and conditions – happy holidays!
