Five Travel Mistakes That Cost You Big Bucks

Travel Mistake #2:

Not Participating in Discount Travel Clubs.
Here's some travel advice that travel insiders don't want you to know about, especially travel agents because they won't get a commission. Vacation travel clubs are a great way to not only save money when you travel, but also meet new friends who love to take vacations and that's good travel advice. Just make sure that you don't overpay for a travel club because there are a lot of travel scams out there.

If a travel club is asking for more than a few hundred dollars for membership, they are probably scamming you. Travel clubs should be geared towards true discounts or added value, social engagement and any dues or membership paid should be reasonable and cover only the true costs. They should also offer a discounted menu of trips only available to members. The scam happens when many clubs charge thousands of dollars and offer a substandard vacation product.

Admission fees to theme parks and local tourist attractions can really add up and max out your vacation budget, but you can save up to 55% on theme parks with Go City Cards. I've used these for several vacations and saved hundreds of dollars. Just one of my many best travel deals tips you'll find on this website.

You're packed and ready to go on vacation, so now comes the most important issue at hand: avoiding jet lag when you arrive at your destination. A survey by Conde Naste said that 93% of travelers get jet lag but you don't have to be one of them if you use my tips.

Book Your Trip

Booking travel online should be quick and easy…not to mention affordable and that's why I like Expedia. Did you know that you can save up to $525 when you book your flight and hotel together at Expedia.com? For the best deals, book 60 days or more before you travel because usually the further out you plan, the better the package rate.
