Do Not Book Your Flight and Hotel Separately

Can you feel the cool air slowly flowing in?  Can you see the hours of daylight getting shorter?  

Yes, summer time is slowly fading away making room for fall and the dreaded cold of winter.

To minimize the dread you feel, begin now to plan your next summer vacation.  That is really great!  After all the work you will do to get through that brutal winter, you will need to get away.

Now, there is one thing you must know if you are planning to fly to a hotel somewhere – do not book your flight and hotel separately.

Some families are used to buying airfare from one travel vendor and their hotel from another.  There are instances where a particular travel supplier only sells one or the other.  

The truth is that you will generally save some money when you book flight and hotel/resort together.  Here’s an example: my wife is traveling this fall with a group to Jamaica.  When I checked my travel partners, I found that if I booked the resort and flight separately for her, she will pay more than $1,400.  However, if I booked them together, she will pay $1,200.  Now, which one would you choose?

I know you may be tempted to buy where you have always bought your individual travel products.  But, you can do yourself some good and at least compare the prices elsewhere before you book.  How about that?

Travel is fun and can be expensive.  But, you can save, if you know how to search.  By the way, consider using a Travel Agent to get you the best deals.

Happy travels and stay warm this winter, thinking about your next summer escape.
