Hi, I’m Joel McDonald & this is my wife Michelle.

Our friends call us “Jochelle.

We discovered “The JGOOT Way” of travel in 2015 when I stumbled across mysteriously low fares to Aruba (during peak season).  We snatched them up and three months later, we flew there and stayed  6 nights at a luxury resort with its own private island for $1104. (Not each… Total.)

We’ve taken dozens of trips since using the same strategy – all for five to twenty cents on the dollar.

School’s out soon! (Part 2)

Don’t have a passport? Here are a couple dozen domestic flights that can help you get out of town for under $150. If you missed the other “School’s out” post with a dozen Mexico, here it is. PS – Two of the destinations are near cruise ports. No passports are required to leave the country […]

My personal favs: Mexico City for $288 (including air & hotel) Denver to Puerto Vallarta: $643 including air & All-Inclusive Hotel Lima Peru: $405 flight […]

…So life doesn’t escape us

I like this one.

If the Dalai Lama says it…

I think United missed the memo…

What United employees did is horrific – there is no denying it. But what is most interesting to me is the $1000 ceiling they hit before requiring passengers to get off the plane. (Seriously United?  In what possible scenario did you imagine forcibly removing a passenger from a plane because of YOUR screw up would not cost at least […]

Monday Motivation

I didn’t learn this lesson until my 30’s (and didn’t REALLY learn it until my late 30’s) but there isn’t a quote out there that does justice to how much travel changes your life.

Could I ask you for a favor?

Hey fellow Coloradans, So this little side project of mine is going pretty well & I really appreciate all of the feedback! If you don’t mind, could I ask a favor of you? Whenever you see a deal I put up that you like, could you share it on your FB or Twitter page for your […]

Currently in two test markets: Los Angeles & Denver

We are currently testing this way of finding affordable travel deals in two markets: Denver (Where our founder lives.) Los Angeles (Where many of our founder’s friends live)

Trips so affordable – you wouldn’t even want to waste miles/points on them.

We don’t just find cheap flights. We also find great hotel prices, other options such as AirBnB, VRBO, cruise prices when applicable, and for those on especially tight budgets, we even include lodging options as low as $3 a day.

Airfare as much as 70% off

We scour thousands of flights & hotel prices daily and only share the absolute best airfares on the internet.

Hotels as low as $5 per night

By bundling the lowest airfares we can find with hotel package rates, we regularly find hotels as low as $5 per person/per night.   In fact, every once in a blue moon, we find package deals that are cheaper than booking a flight alone! Just take a look at the average nightly room rates we find. Even […]
