TRAVEL RESOURCES & DEALS

Plan your trip with expert travel consultants

If you need expert help planning your trip, we offer virtual travel consulting (via Facetime, Skype, or Facebook messenger), or by chat (via Facebook messenger). There are no upfront costs for Members, but even non-Members receive a full refund upon making a booking. Initial costs for virtual sessions are $40 per half hour, which is enough time for most consultations. We charge $20 for half-hour text messaging consultations. If this is your first time using Travel Consultation, take 75% off of that price! To set up an appointment, check out our Travel Consultation page. This is the absolute easiest way to make sure you’re getting the best deals and an amazing vacation as we’ll be doing the research for you!

Disclosure: We feature only the travel products and services that we think will be useful to our audience. If you purchase anything from a link on our site, we may get a small share of the sale from our affiliate partners. If you purchase directly from our partners without using our links, the cost will be exactly the same, but we will not earn anything for referring you to them. These affiliate links are crucial in keeping our site free for everyone to use. Thank you for your support! If you have any questions about the companies, please e-mail us.

Best Hotel Deals

Our New Favorite Hotel deals are listed on:
Hotels.com

We like hotels.com for it's easy to use website and the best deals we can find on hotels, condos, villas, resorts, hostels, bnbs, and apartments. You can even customize based on your vacation type and preferences like: Beach, Adventure, Family-Friendly, Business, Golf, Luxury, or Spas! They also have options for Accessibility Features if they are required! We should note that we don't generally use Hotels (we like Airbnb's because they are more affordable, but we occasionally do grab hotels and this is where we go to first. Check out the mobile exclusive offers at Hotels.com (up to 25% with this link)


Booking.com
When we can't find what we are looking for on Hotels.com, we go to Booking.com - which also has an amazing assortment of hotels. We recommend using booking.com because the customer service is outstanding. If you ever have a problem with your booking you can just call them up and they'll handle the issue for you. You can also customize for just about any type of room based on price, kitchen, ratings, etc.

Bed & Breakfasts / Unique

Airbnb
Airbnb is the #1 place that we use to get affordable places to stay just about anywhere! Additionally, if you've never used Airbnb before, you can get $40 off your first trip PLUS $15 toward an experience of $50 or more with this link). We even recommend renting out your own spare room with Airbnb to earn money to travel (learn how to do this here).

VRBO
Another option that we use if we cannot find a decent place on Airbnb is VRBO (Vacation Rentals by Owner). Here you can rent out condos, villas, or apartments - or you can even swap houses with people in other countries (at almost no cost!)

HomeForExchange
And although we've never used it, you could try swapping houses with someone else to SAVE THOUSANDS of dollars (just like in the movie "The Holiday" with Cameron Diaz, Kate Winslet, Jude Law, and Jack Black) with HomeForExchange
