Here is a list of my top favorite travel sites for alerts and searching. I mostly use them as a guide for prices I should be able to find and then go to the airline or hotel or company website to book. I’ve called hotels directly and told them about the price I saw online and got them to book me for a lower price. This was done without any pressure from me except asking kindly once, “Can you do any better?” Even if it was only $5, that’s the $5 that buys me a water at the airport after I pour mine out at security. I figure every dollar counts. I’ve called airlines in the middle of the night (during my insomnia phase) and asked when the next sale/special will be posted. More often than not, employees are willing to share this information. I search hashtags for the places I’m thinking of traveling to on social media. I’m also a little crazy when it comes to expectation of prices. I give myself an absurd challenge and then don’t go until I find it at that price….or I don’t go. Who would’ve thought you could fly to Europe cheaper than to Florida? Me.
