BOOKING FOR CRUISES WITHOUT ANY BRUISES

Image
For people who have never booked a holiday on a cruise ship before, it can be a little daunting to know where to begin when doing so. Word of mouth is all well and good, and actually it is a good idea to do a little research online, firstly to find reputable travel agents who are experienced in arranging cruise-style holidays and also to read accounts from other travelers who have already been on the trip that you are planning, you never know, there may be something that you have overlooked that would make this a holiday that is not for you!

Choosing your cabin, destinations, flights and transfers, it is a lot to organize with no help at all, and so easy to make a mistake, that many cruise lines do not even give customers the option for booking cruise online as they know from experience how complicated it can be. Also, cruise liners will only be able to advise you on the specific cruises they have on offer, whereas a travel agent can help you choose which particular cruise line is most…

Even if you’re flying with a group. Airlines often sell multiple fare classes at different prices, with a couple seats in each class. If there’s only one seat left in the lowest fare class and you search for four seats, most automated systems will show you the highest fare class for all four tickets. Try searching one at a time, just in case there are limited seats on sale. This way, you’ll rest assured that at least some, if not all, of your tickets were purchased for the lowest possible price. If you lock in the cheap fare and have the option to selec…

Flightlayaway Will Make Your Trip The Perfect!

There is a myth about people who live in places with all the site attractions. The assumption is always that they have visited these site attractions so many times that they no longer notice it. However, just like the saying about the one who lives beside the church always being late for service, those who live besides the best site attraction may have never been there before.
While this may sound appealing to those who have to travel long distances to come and visit these site attractions, it shouldn’t be. Because, as we speak, the traveler who has managed to travel round the world to get to a certain destination may have also left a beautiful site attraction behind their house. For such people who live besides beautiful site attractions, the problem they may be facing is the fact that they believe it will always be there and they can find time to visit when they want. Unfortunately, they get that time and the days just while away. If you are planning to book cheap flight, you must ch…

Here's the Truth. When's the Best Time to Buy an Airfare?

Image
Are you looking to get the absolute lowest price on plane tickets? Some experts say book last minute… Others say the lowest fares are on Wednesdays.

If you’ve spent any amount of time shopping for flights, you probably know that airfares change a lot. Airlines will tell you that the price fluctuations are based on meticulous real-time calculations to match supply and demand, but to travelers the ups and downs seem random, totally unpredictable, and utterly without rhyme or reason.
Here are 5 additional pieces of advice that we are able to glean from this massive study. Keep in mind that our focus here is on domestic flights – those within the U.S. Click here for our discoveries about the best time to buy international flights.

1. When You Buy Matters
A graph of the best fare by the numbers of days booked in advance looks deceptively smooth, aside from the sharp rise once you get inside 14 days. At 320 days out when we started looking, average fares were about higher than their low point. …

Reasons To Go On A Cruise

Image
1. Multiple Destinations
Have you ever had difficulties planning your trip itinerary? Visiting multiple countries can be a very pricey option when traveling by land. Cruise ships feature multiple itinerary destinations so you can scope out more than one place. Southern Caribbean cruises can feature island hopping destinations such as Jamaica, Belize, Dominican Republic, Mexico and Puerto Rico to name a few. Perhaps a Mediterranean cruise is more your speed with exotic destinations such as Greece, Spain, Italy or France.
2. Fun for the Whole Family
Taking a cruise ensures that there will be something for the entire family to do at all times. Kids will love the cruise ship play zones featuring fun activities like mini-golf and water slides. Teens will have their own cool hangout areas where parents will know they are safe, and couples can enjoy a romantic dinner at sunset as they drift across the ocean. Cruise ships are perfect for an extended family get-together as each ship c…

How to Book Cruise, Avoid these Mistakes

Image
There are so many options for cruising; you should definitely take the time to think about what you really want from a cruise before you book one. Cruising is a wonderfully affordable way to vacation, but it’s still an investment and you want the greatest possible return of fun, relaxation and enjoyment.

Some mistakes that you should take care to avoid: Picking the wrong destination: When you’re shoveling snow or looking at gray skies, a cruise of the Caribbean seems like an easy choice. And, if you love sandy beaches and water sports, the Caribbean will suit you to a T. But, if you would be happier taking architecture tours in historic cities, you might look toward the Mediterranean; if majestic mountain peaks and animals are rarely seen outside a zoo are for you, think about Alaska. We could go on and on.
Booking the wrong ship: Each ship has its own personality, which is formed from many variables, such as the vibe of the cruise line and the ship’s size, age, and amenities. Some ships …

The Best Five Tips To Finding Cheap Flights,

Image
1. Start searching as early as possible

Airlines generally release tickets 11 months in advance. Once you know your destination start searching and continue to check at least once per week.

Flight prices are live and fluctuate constantly due to supply and demand, so have a price in mind YOU are comfortable paying and be ready to jump on it.

Sure, there are last-minute deals that might beat what you’ve already paid, but that’s not guaranteed. If you want to play the game of waiting for a bargain, you’re better off NOT having a fixed destination in mind. More on that down below.

2. When is the best time to BUY your ticket?

There really is no hard and fast rule. However, there are some general trends to be aware of.

Peak season and holiday weekends will have the most demand, so expect higher prices. You can, however, stack the odds in your favor by buying at a certain time. 

A study by Flightlayaway who analyzed 560 million flight searches, found an optimal time to buy was on average 7 weeks in…
