Planning an upcoming vacation? Looking for ways to save money on flight tickets and hotels? Here is our our favourite travel tips!
1. Book airline tickets 7 weeks in advance
Travel analysts suggest that Thursday is the best day of the week to buy airline tickets, but there’s really no guarantee that flights will be cheaper on this day. The most expensive day to buy flights? Sunday. In general, you’ll get the best deal if you book your plane ticket approximately seven weeks before your desired departure date.
2. Download hotel apps for incredible deals
If you’re looking to book a hotel room without spending a lot out of pocket, download free apps like Agoda or Hotels.com that allow you to book highly rated hotels at amazing last-minute rates… a win-win! When hotels have unsold rooms, they’re loaded onto the app, which allows YOU to book those rooms at incredibly low rates for tonight, tomorrow, or next week.
3. Discover your credit card member perks
If you’re a cardholder, check out the discounts and rewards associated with your credit card company before booking a vacation. Several credit cards offer discounts on hotel stays, flight tickets and more. For example Aeon and ABA offers discounts when paying with their credit card.
