If you’re reading this, it’s probably because you want to go somewhere specific, have shopped that trip to death, couldn’t find anything affordable and emailed me hoping I had a last minute trick up my sleeve.
The bad news is that I’m not a travel agent and when it comes to going to specific places at specific times – you’ve got better odds buying lottery tickets than to get a good deal shopping for a specific trip “the traditional way.” But I’ve got good news!
If all you want to do is go to a specific place, you don’t need anything I have to offer. This video will save you a ton of money.
Need to go to that specific place at a specific time? If you have enough advance notice, try this even cooler trick. (Again – no charge for this advice.)
Either way – if all you need is a trip to a specific place you don’t need to pay for my services.
When you’re ready to be INSPIRED to travel by finding ridiculously cheap round-trip flights:
to any of the 48 states where you can visit friends or family for under $100 (sometimes as low as $29 round-trip)
to any of the hundreds of exotic destinations with white-sand beaches in Mexico/Caribbean (and often Hawaii) that are $100 to $400…
to any of the beautiful countries in Europe, Asia, or South America between $200 and $600…
to Africa or Australia are $400 to $1000 round-trip…
AND have a bullet-proof backup plan for any time prices are higher than that…
…I’d love for JGOOT to be your muse.
But… If you don’t mind me giving you one last travel tip:
If you’re thinking about trying my premium trip alert service out, don’t try and wait for the perfect time.
The risk of missing out on a perfect trip that will save you $3000 by booking it 6 or 8 months in advance is far greater than the $24 or $32 you’ll save by waiting until you’re ready to plan your next trip. Don’t take it from me. Take it from the thousands of subscribers who have asked me for help after it’s too late.
Either way, I hope this post will help you to start traveling a little more affordably.

Below is a recording of a conversation I had with JGOOT premium subscriber Robert Horvick after he left these kind words on our Facebook page.
Robert & his wife live in Raleigh, NC. Since joining my trip-alert service, they’ve only travelled domestically, but they’ve taken 3 trips and saved $600 to $800 so far.
They watch for trips every day but even when none of the trips interest them or work with their schedule, he describes opening his daily trip alerts as “Five minutes of dreaming and fun.”
Don’t have 30 minutes to watch the whole video? A list of highlights is below.
Intro: “We got married young and travel was limited to road trips. Now that kids are older…”
1:05: $97 Delta direct afternoon flight Raleigh to Austin that we’ve paid $350 for multiple times in the past.
3:30: $63 mid-day direct Raleigh flight to Minneapolis (not-last minute. Months ahead.)
4:50: Plans for Paris next Summer
5:30: Using points as a backup plan
7:10: Orlando/Disney flight that added two days to their vacation for the same cost
8:45: WAY cheaper to get a great deal on a flight and a bad deal on a cruise, than a great deal on a cruise and a bad deal on a flight.
11:00: Opening JGOOT emails is like scratching a lottery ticket. Even when you don’t win, it’s five minutes of dreaming and fun.
14:10: How we saved $600 to $800 in the 6 months since we subscribed.
15:20: It’s as fun to dream while sitting at home as it is to be traveling when you are able to get out
15:50: The benefits of building travel plans around deals vs Planning to travel, and hoping to find a deal
17:45: Co-worker paying $3000 flights to Shanghai vs $600 including 7 nights.
18:35: Getting your butt on the plane for cheap, and then getting a business class upgrade for less than the cost of lunch.
22:20: How we get these trips at the price advertised.
25:30: How we used to travel vs how we travel now.
29:20: Recap of the two strategies behind “The JGOOT Way” of travel.
31:30: Robert’s final suggestion to get the most out of your JGOOT trip-alerts
