Some people like to travel alone and enjoy a vacation of solitude and then you have the average traveler who likes to travel in groups. Whatever you choose travel companies have made it easy for you to get your vacation packages. From 5 star luxury hotels, 3 star hotels, a budget hotel or a charming cottage, there is a travel package made for you.
I love this android app called ‘hopper’. It has this cute little bunny running across the screen. Okay that’s besides the point, I love this app because it’s like my own travel expert that tells me when it's a great time to buy my airline ticket. The best part is I can let it watch the flight dates for me and when there is a drop in price it notifies me. So while someone has bought a ticket to Miami from Jamaica for $411, I was able to buy it at $285 because of this app. Saved me a lot of money!
A favorite website of mine is booking. One of the best apps to book hotels in my estimation. They also have an app version as well. Do you need to book a room but can’t because you don’t have the money yet? Well with this website some of the reservations allow you to book without no deposit and gives you ample time to pay with some even offering that there’s no need to pay till you arrive at your hotel. If only they had one for flights too.
It’s also a great idea to get an airline Visa/MasterCard for example from Jetblue. Each time you swipe that card you get points or miles that can have you travelling for free in no time. With the advancement of technology, it’s now easier than ever to get the best prices for your vacation or travel.
