8 Awesome Tips To Find Cheap Flight Deals Today

One of the biggest obstacles that keeps most people from traveling more often is high flight prices. We totally understand. As much as we always want to hop on the next plane to anywhere, it’s not easy to justify hundreds—if not thousands—of dollars on tickets to faraway locations when we could better explore Costa Rica or Central America. Luckily though, we have found numerous ways to travel hack our way to cheaper flights. Here are a few of our top tips:   8 Awesome Tips To Find Cheap Flight Deals Today Stay one step ahead of the game with these 7 tips and never miss out on another flight deal again.   1. Be Flexible The more flexible you can be, the more likely you are to find the best deals. Prices can vary dramatically just by choosing a different arrival airport, or postponing your trip for a day. Search for flight tickets before you even begin to plan your trip. This way, you can nail the best flight deal, and then plan your trip around it. But this doesn’t just go for dates, it also works for location. For example, we recently needed to book two tickets from Costa Rica to Hawaii. We had 70,000 miles—enough for one of us to get there. When we were trying to purchase the other ticket on the same flight, the price was $2800. So, we got creative, and found that we could fly direct from Costa Rica to LA, roundtrip, for $400 each. We could then both get to Hawaii with the miles we had. By being flexible and allowing for an extra day...

The hidden gems of Zurich – small, cosy and delicious

  When traveling to Switzerland, the city of Zurich should be on top of any “to-see-list”. This stunningly beautiful city seems to be bursting with culture, flair and easy living. But there is a downside to this fantastic holiday destination: Staying in Zurich is quite expensive. So let’s have a look at some small and cosy hotels which will not leave you penniless after one night. We’ll introduce two nice restaurants, where you’ll enjoy delicious food for reasonable prices and, last but not least, give you some ideas on what not to miss during your visit to Zurich. Design, style and comfort in the heart of the city If you have not heard of the very unique hotel chain called 25hours-hotels, you now have the chance to change that! The German hotel chain consist of 11 individually designed houses in Berlin, Hamburg, Frankfurt, Vienna and … Zurich! Each hotel reflects the ambience of the city and you’ll never stop finding small lovingly placed details, which will make you smile. On top, the four-star design hotel in Zurich is actually cheaper than a lot of three-star hotels in the area, so you should definitely check it out! Of course, you will also find many youth hostels and random low budget hotels, but a holiday should be a treat after all and nothing beats a good night’s sleep. One more option we would like to present is Glamping! Luxury camping just outside the city right by Lake Zurich is something amazing. There is a Glamping Website in German, which gives you all the needed information about this cool and quite affordable...

The return of the UK seaside holiday

Photo by ReflectedSerendipity on Flickr Ever since the package holiday revolution of the 1960s and 70s heading off for two weeks in the sun has been as much part of the summer for many Britons as wasp invasions of picnics and the chimes of ice cream vans in the distance. From Torremolinos to Tuscany and from the Cote d’Azur to Cyprus we’ve travelled in our millions to enjoy the guarantee of good weather, delicious but still familiar food and a break from the 9 to 5. But following the referendum that defied the Brexit odds and which is set to see us leave the EU could this be all about to change? Already many commentators are predicting that freedom of movement around Europe may become more problematic and exchange rates also started to plummet as soon as the referendum result was announced. There have also been rumblings from the travel industry including the low cost airline EasyJet who have declared that this promises to be their most challenging summer ever. But for all this gloom it could certainly be a cloud with a silver lining for the UK’s many seaside holiday resorts as more and more people are persuaded to enjoy what, in recent times, has become known as a staycation. Because while, for many, the image of a UK seaside resort still includes donkey rides on the beach and “Kiss me quick” hats over the last few years a quiet revolution has been going on, transforming these once drab and frankly quite depressing resorts into holiday destinations fit to compete with almost anywhere in Europe. Take Hastings in...

The Isle of Man: A Hidden Gem in the Irish Sea

  Photo via Neil Howard on Flickr, https://www.flickr.com/photos/neilsingapore/ When it comes to travelling around Europe we all know the “big names” to visit. From the likes of France and Italy to Finland and the UK, there are plenty of top travel destinations across the continent, but what if you were to look beyond the beaten track? Dotted around the coastlines of Europe are some intriguing islands that not only offer a glimpse into some unique landscapes, but a plethora of sights, scenery and events to enjoy. While we could literally throw a dart at a map and choose somewhere like Tresco (Isles of Scilly), Porquerolles (France) or Sark (Channel Islands), this time we’ve decided to take a virtual trip to the Isle of Man. Located in the Irish Sea between mainland Great Britain and Ireland, the Isle of Man might be home to just under 85,000 people and span 221 square miles, but it has a wealth of hidden treasures and only a very short flight away – making it an ideal weekend destination out of the ordinary. We think the Isle of Man is the epitome of the phrase “All good things come in small packages”, which is why we’ve picked out some of its top attractions.   It’s TT-Time   Photo via Jason on Flickr, https://www.flickr.com/photos/spider9485 If there’s one reason above all else to visit the Isle of Man it’s the annual TT (Tourist Trophy). First run in 1907, the two-week event in late spring sees the best motorbike riders excite millions of fans on one of the riskiest courses in the world. In fact, in addition to the thousands who line the Snaefell...
