Holiday travel packages to somewhere warm
You may be not able to fly away from your bills for the holidays, but this doesn’t mean that your winter time escape to someplace warm has to follow you financially for months after the big trip. By doing a bit of Internet research, you can save some money on holiday travel and still get to shed your layers.
Whether you want to drive to somewhere slightly south to achieve just a bit or warmth, or you want to fly across the world to an exotic tropical locale, turn to aggregators such as Hotwire and Hotels.com for ideas and deals. If you’re not picky, take a peek at their special offers. Or if you know where you want to go, consider being a bit flexible on your dates to save money. Look at both packages that include hotels, cars and flights all in one or if buying these items separately will save you money. Or look into a cruise and airfare package if you’d like something that will include entertainment and a variety of destinations within one trip.
Once you have figured out where you’re going to go, you have to decide how you’re going to get there – most likely via air travel, unless you purchased a package with airfare included. Sites such as Cheap Air and Travelocity offer deals on airfare, as well as vacation packages to go with these flights. Or you can go directly through airlines such as Hawaiian Airlines if you have a preferred carrier or they’re offering a better deal that travel package aggregators.
After assembling the basics of your vacation package – meaning airfare, hotels and car rentals – consider add-ons such as all inclusive packages or meal deals. Also look into adventure and entertainment deals that may be added on or found elsewhere on the net. The more time you spend preparing for your trip, the more time you’ll have to enjoy it when you get there. Use that savings on impulsive purchases once you get to your destination!
If you’ve done your research, you’ll be able to splurge a bit if the mood strikes you when you head south for winter because you saved beforehand. And you’ll do so knowing basking in the warmth of your destination, and the beauty of remaining under budget while doing so.
