Cheap Trips

I don’t like making recommendations without trying the product myself, but I feel very safe about this recommendation.  Recently I discovered a site called TravelZoo.  The website offers cheap flights, cruises, hotels, and vacation packages.  In a couple of months I will be planning a big trip and TravelZoo will be the first on my list of sites to visit.  I have seen some of the lowest priced domestic and international flights.

From the reviews I have read about TravelZoo there are a few things you need to be careful of.  My main recommendation is be SMART!  Of the few negative reviews I found, most people were upset because they got something they didn’t expect.  Some people got a hotel that wasn’t as nice as they thought or they thought they were getting more activities on a travel package than they did.  To avoid this problem, read the description carefully, look up the hotel or airline that’s being offered, and research other deals.  As soon as I plan my next trip I will let you know how it goes with using TravelZoo.

If you, or a friend, have used TravelZoo comment about your experience.  Comment on any other websites you have used.

  1. Hi Brandon, with all your travelling around the world, what do you suggest is the best and safer way to carry money around especially travelling to 11 countries.My two nieces and nephew will be doing that in the next four weeks. They dont want to carry that much cash of different currency w them and wonder if there a better way of going about in doing so.

    Loveto read your blog on all the wonderful places you been andgeting your bucket list accomplished.

    Thanks, Patricia Saltus (friend of your parents from Singapore)

    1. Thanks for reading my blog. The trip your nieces and nephew are taking sounds awesome. Carrying money is always a concern. What I usually do is when I am traveling, I keep some money in my pockets that I will need throughout the day for transportation, activities, food, etc. Then I keep the rest in a hard to reach pocket in my backpack. This last trip I actually had a small lock on the zippers of my backpack (make sure you keep your backpack with you at all times). When they aren’t traveling there are safes where they should leave the money or if they’re staying at hostels there are usually places where you can lock up your valuables. I always bring one credit card and use it as much as possible so I am carrying around as little money as possible. They can always use money belts, but I have never been a fan of them. As long as they are aware of their surroundings and keep their backpacks with them they should be fine. Let me know if this helps and if you have any other questions.

  2. I’ve not yet used TravelZoo but I subscribe to the emails. I also subscribe to LivingSocial’s travel deals and SniqueAway. I haven’t used any of them but the deals look pretty good.
