Travel Hacks - Save More Money II


Thinking about going on a trip? Want to save more money? No matter the season, no matter the reason, these travel hacks will save you more money.

Travel Hack #1

Time it Right

When using your credit card to book a flight, pay attention to the billing cycle. If the billing cycle on your card turns over on the 25th of the month, book your flight after that day. It will give you some additional time to pay it off.

For example, if you book a flight to Florida April 21-28, book it on the 26th of March of after. This way March’s bill will come in April and you’ll have until the end of April to pay it.

Travel Hack #2

Free Stopovers

The stopover and the layover, most people dread them. But arranging for a stopover or a longer layover, say 24 hours not only saves you money, but can provide you with experiences you may not have otherwise.

For the long layover why not pick up some things in the local shop, find something interesting to do, something you wouldn’t get to do otherwise and treat yourself. The memories will last forever.

Travel Hack #3

Price Predictors

Many travel sites like Expedia, Priceline and Hotwire utilize data from past flights in order to predict prices for upcoming airfare. Watch closely, because at any time, any day flight prices can increase as your chosen date gets closer.

Search your favorite travel site for the flight you want then check the price predictor. If your planned getaway is more than 3-4 months out, set up a fare alert and watch the price.

Then on a Tuesday or Wednesday, when the new month starts, after your credit card has refreshed its billing cycle, Google the flight again. If your credit card company has a travel option with points use those points to pay for as much as the fare as possible, saving yourself even more money and put the remainder on your card.

Travel Hack #4

Price Alerts

Most travel sites allow you to set up price alerts to notify you via email if the price of your flight should change. Keep an eye on your flight, for a short period of time. Most of the time, the earlier you book the better. You can wait until the right day of the week or month according to your credit card’s billing cycle, but book as quickly as possible or you may miss a good deal.

Saving more money with travel hacks is easy and can help ensure the best price and may even give you a chance at doing things you would’ve never been able to do otherwise. Happy travels!
