This post side-steps on the previous one about “Frequent flyer miles redemption on the rise”. While it’s true that people are hunting for free seats by cashing in on their miles reward points, the same is true with people also hunting and actually landing great summer trip deals. This is the perfect time to hunt for paid seats!
Travel agencies worldwide are trying their best to present the greatest deal they can during these tough times. They have to make their deals as affordable as possible to survive these tough times. So go ahead and hunt those “once expensive deals”… you may get something within reach this time.
Check out these tips:
1. Hunt online – go on the internet and search for that special holiday program. If you like to go to Asia you can search for “Asia holiday” or “Asia Travel Guide” on google.com Casually browse through the sites, but have a pen and paper handy to write down anything that catches your attention.
2. Ask friends -chances are your friends know friends who travel a lot. Ask around, don’t be shy about it too.
3. Look at the papers – Sunday papers are the best to start with as they print out many travel ads there. Clip those sections that you’re interested in and put them in a folder.
