JACKSON, Miss.- Planning that perfect summer trip, but trying to do it on a budget? Melisse Hinkle has some great tips for you.
Editor for CheapFlights Hinkle says that it’s all about doing your research. Investigating where you want to go and what it will take to get there is your best bet at getting a good deal.
Airfares are at a five year low which is good news for travelers.
“We do tend to find the best deals (flights) very far in advance or at the last minute…. Compare carefully. Think about what’s included in your flight and think about your needs,” says Hinkle.
When choosing a hotel, more often than no you’ll be able to select one with a bundle package to include airfare. Try to be flexible with your plans. Even moving a trip around by a day or two could save your wallet big time.
If you plan to stay stateside Las Vegas, L.A., San Francisco, and Austin Texas are on the top of the list for trending locations to vacay.
Looking for something more exotic you can take advantage of some international deals. The Dominican Republic offers great beach vacations at a lower price. Also, Bangkok Thailand is becoming a hot spot destination for travelers on a budget.
