“I wish I could travel like you”

Every time my wife & I get together with friends, they comment on our most recent Facebook travel pictures saying “I wish I could travel like you.”

The funny thing is…
if you want to travel like me, all you have to do is… Travel like me.
  • When you travel like me, you spend an average of 85% less than what everyone else is paying for the exact same trips.
  • And when you spend 85% less than everyone else on the same plane as you, you tend to travel more.
It’s that simple.

Here is how you can take an entire family on trips that cost less than what most people pay for just one person:

  1. For vacations, watch every day for deals that are months in advance.  Don’t just look for “good deals”… Keep an eye on hundreds of destinations, watching exclusively for AMAZING “needle in haystack” deals that are too good to pass up. They’re out there every day – you just have to watch for them.  When you find one that’s 60% to 90% less than what you’d normally pay, book it well in advance and plan your schedule around it.   Trips my subscribers and I have taken include $110 flights to Cabo, $192 flights to Aruba, $154 flights to Cancun… $325 to London, $290 to Spain, and so on. (Those are all round-trip prices, BTW.)
  2. I also keep an eye out every day for cheap fares where I have friends/family who I like to visit. I’ve booked $29 weekend flights to Indianapolis (where my wife grew up), $39 flights to L.A to visit friends, $84 flights to visit my brother’s family in Raleigh… When I found $50 flights where my friends Peter & Tania lived, I invited them to visit us for a ski weekend. The list goes on.  None of these trips are trips I would have planned. But when you can take a long weekend visiting friends/family for those prices… Why not?

    Finally – As a last resort – I always keep a stash of at least 100,000 frequent flyer points for scenarios when I CAN’T find a cheap trip that fits my schedule.

    • For example:
    • When my wife wanted to go to Hawaii, but my cheap ass refused to pay $1326 PER PERSON just to get there??? Points to the rescue. We went for $22 each.
    • When friends from Indianapolis snatched up a JGOOT deal to Turks & Caicos & invited us, we’d have normally had to say “no” because flights from Denver were over twice that. ($650). But we dipped into my stash of points, joined them for $96, and started a multi-family “friendcation” tradition that is now 3 vacations strong.
    • When we had to fly to a friends’ Dad’s funeral and couldn’t find tickets less than $450 each, we used points and went for $11.

So there you have it.

If you want to travel like me, all you need to do is… Travel like me.

My blog and my Facebook Page are open books on how you can find travel deals yourself for free.
Don’t have the time to sort through hundreds of fares per day to find a needle in a haystack? As a premium JGOOT subscriber you can:
  • leave the haystack behind, and have the “needles” delivered on a silver platter every day. (With “needles” being unbelievably good travel deals that have been cherrypicked from thousands of regular priced trips.)
  • I’ll share a far more comprehensive guide than this one, webinars on how to easily collect 100,000 frequent flyer points in the next 60 days, and…
  • You’ll also have private access to my member-only group where you can ask questions & get answers from other premium subscribers who are regularly traveling for a fraction of what 98% of travelers are accustomed to paying “the traditional way”.
