“Just wanted to take a second and thank you for your amazing website. We just booked flights to London in March and we got an amazing deal based off that email you sent ($325 round-trip). Your AirBnb links helped us find a hotel that kept us well within our budget. We haven’t had a proper […]

I hope you’re enjoying your 3-day weekend! In honor of practicing what I preach, I’m going to take the next few days off to recharge my batteries here in Turks & Caicos. I’ll “see” you again on Wednesday.
Another question I get all the time is “How do I book a trip?” You can book any trip I send directly online through the site of your choice. If you’re just looking for a flight, click the “Verify fares” link, choose your desired flight time, and book it directly with the OTA of your […]
“Sometimes you have to lead the horse to water to get him to drink – or so I’ve heard. JGOOT brings the water to you – or should I say the vacation deals that are so ridiculous that it’s almost unheard of. I have a pretty acute issue for wanderlust but navigating all of the travel sites, […]
This post is to help premium members get the most out of the premium member area. I can’t tell you how often I get responses from subscribers along the lines of “Wait – I can search for trips during Spring Break?” or “I’m looking to travel in June and most of your emails are for […]
“I love watching the deals come in! As a travel-obsessed parent and a teacher, I am thrilled that I can search for deals during school breaks! We found such a great deal to San Jose del Cabo, Mexico over the Winter holidays that we took the grandparents too! Thank you!” Nikki Sandschaper
Throughout the site, you may see me reference “OTA” quite often. OTA stands for “Online Travel Agency”. When clicking on the links I provide, you’re taken to the OTA where I found the best fare, and you can book directly through them. You can also call your travel agent and have them book for you. […]
“Great trip information and deals! Joel is very considerate and friendly and even asks if you’re finding the information helpful and want to continue receiving it… no other web page has ever done that for me before!” Klaudia Palcynska
“I honestly never thought you could leave the country without spending at least $1k-$1500 on a flight alone. I’m doing an 11 day trip to Colombia that will only cost $700 for flight & lodging, and JGOOT found it for me. Best membership fee I pay.” Graham Ahner
[Please note: Southwest changed their terms, and signing up for two different credit cards is no longer allowed. They also reduced their signup bonus to $40k.] A good friend shared this in our premium member area, and since the last time this happened, it only lasted a couple days, I wanted to share. After all […]
A lot of people express an interest in places like Budapest, Morocco, Maldives, Bali, and sure – I post great deals that fly directly there. But Daniel – our most veteran JGOOT traveler – shared a tip in our private Facebook group that I had to repeat. (If you haven’t read Daniel’s story, it’s quite inspiring […]
