Your “Travel More” New Year Resolution

So you want to travel more, huh?

Let’s get you started on your first step toward actually getting to your dream destination affordably within the next year, shall we? Below is a blog post (And video if you prefer not to read) with my BIGGEST secret to finding the deals I find: Watching every day (whether I’m planning a trip or not.)

  • Step 1: Think of a destination that is on your bucket list
  • Step 2: Go to a site called AirfareWatchdog.com, and search for their “fare alerts” feature.
  • Step 3: Enter your home airport and then enter as many destinations as you can think of on your bucket list. (If there is more than one airport to that destination, go ahead and enter all of them.)
  • Have friends & family around the country? Now, start a search for every one of their airports too.

Don’t be shy about this! The more destinations you watch, the sooner you’ll stumble across a deal that you can’t afford not to go on.

Don’t worry – Manhy of your alerts will be expensive at first, but have faith – they always go down. Always.

You just have to be watching for when they do (and guess what; If you followed steps 1-3 above, now you are! All you have to do is take about 30 seconds to check each subject line of what they send every day.)

Remember – you’re not just looking for a good deal. You’re waiting for a deal so amazing – you think it’s a mistake. (It won’t be. It’s just a pricing anomaly that usually only lasts a day or two, and if you grab it – it can save you hundreds, if not thousands more than what everyone else on the plane will be paying a month or two later.)

Happy travels!

    I belonged to watchdog before I joined JGOOT. I dream from your emails, but have found Airfare Watchdog emails work well for me for specific destinations —the only downside is most of the really great deals are on Frontier and I’ve had too many bad experiences with them to risk the great price. Based on an alert earlier this week, I’m taking a spontaneous trip to Australia on American in March for $650 a ticket. Lowest price I’ve seen (that doesn’t take 2-3 times longer than direct to get there). and I’ve tracked it for 3 years.

    I’m hoping the right random dream trip will show up in your posts soon
