The most common travel setbacks can be avoided by keeping some key things in mind. Based on experience and research, our ever-growing catalog of creative travel tips will help you experience places and cultures.
We recommend starting with Google Flights to get an overall picture of what your itinerary may cost. From there, start looking at third party sites and the airline’s website. Sometimes you can find the best deal directly from the airline.
Airbnb is an excellent way to stay in a neighborhood versus a touristy area. You can often find a better deal on Airbnb versus a traditional hotel, but be aware that due to Airbnb’s growing popularity prices in popular areas are going up.
Expedia and Hotwire are our go-to sites to hire a car. But we find that due to the number of booking sites available, you typically find comparable pricing across sites for your destination. Just remember that sometimes booking sites don’t include extra fees that you will need to pay when you pick-up the car. Always read the fine print before booking anything.
