Prepare to Save


I have been slacking with the travel tips as of late, but this week I have a couple that will save you a lot of money.  There is a website called Airfarewatchdog that allows you to find unadvertised sales and cheap flights.  All you have to do is sign-up with your email address and select alerts from your home airport and other close airports.  If you are looking to travel to a certain city you can also select “to a city”, which alerts you of deals to a certain city from various airports.  It’s a great way to find the cheapest flights.  Once you find a good deal, select it, and to the right of the flight information there will be several discount websites you can book the flight through (Travelocity, Orbitz, etc.)   To get these deals you have to act quickly and have flexible travel dates.  The tickets go fast because you can save hundreds of dollars. This gives you the power to find deals that you would have otherwise missed. 

If you hate renting a car as much as I do, you will enjoy this tip.  Auto Slash helps you find the cheapest car rental prices.  The cool thing is that if you’ve booked a car and the price drops, you’ll receive an alert and be allowed to rebook at the lower price.  I compared the prices from this website with other common cheap car rental websites and Auto Slash has been the cheapest and easiest to use.  It provides all of the details of the car rental agreement.  This is a great tool to help you quickly find cheap rentals.

Although I haven’t used either website, I know that both websites will help you save a lot of money.  There are a lot of good reviews and information about both sites.  I can’t wait to begin using them!

  1. I’m signed up for Airfarewatchdog but I’ve never been able to snag any of their deals. It’s apparently just one cheap flight and if you don’t get to it first, it’s gone. I’ve had more success with TravelZoo.

  2. Thanks for letting me know, I will have to check out TravelZoo. I haven’t tried to get any flights yet from Airfarewatchdog, but I’m going to start trying. It amazed me at how cheap flights were on the site, so I’m not surprised there are so few seats available.
