Little-Known Travel Hacks to Save You Time and Money
We enjoy traveling, meeting new people, discovering new cultures, and learning more about the world beyond our own. But at the same time, we understand that traveling costs time and money, and as much as we can afford to save for a vacation every once in a while, we still want to make the most of every experience and probably even save a couple bucks while were at it.
Whether you are traveling domestically or internationally, our Connecticut limo service has come up with several tips that will save you time, money, and a lot of unnecessary hassle on your next excursion.
Enable Private Browsing and Clear Cache
Airlines will track your online behavior through cookies, which means that if you log back onto their website in search of a cheaper flight they will have a record of your previous searches and will probably nudge you towards a similar ticket. Its cheeky, we know, but they are trying to run a business and, like any other business, they want to maximize on profits. You can resolve this by clearing your cache or enabling private browsing any time you want to purchase an airline ticket.
Get a Travel Rewards Card
Almost everyone owns a credit card, some people own several, and while it is important to be careful how you use them to ensure that you are not spending more than you are making, there are ways in which your credit card can work for you. If you are an avid traveler, consider replacing your regular credit card with a travel rewards credit card. This way, you will regularly land complimentary hotel stays, free flights, and free tours on your adventures. Some of these cards even offer sign up bonuses that give you free flights almost every other time.
Sign up for TSA Precheck
If you move around a lot, you may also want to consider applying for the TSA Precheck program that saves you a bunch of time at the airport security queue. Security check lines are pretty long, slow, and it gets pretty frustrating waiting for your turn, especially when you are running late. However, with the TSA Precheck you don’t have to take off your shoes, light jackets, belts, etc., and you are allowed to leave your electronics and liquids in your carry-on. The TSA website indicate that Precheck passengers spend an average of five minutes on the security queue. How convenient is that?
Hunt for Deals
Don’t jump on the first deal that comes your way, find out if there is a better deal. Look out for discounted rates, two for the price of one offers, kids’ offers, sign up for hotel loyalty programs for complimentary perks, etc. Also, note that traveling in off-peak periods means that you don’t have to spend as much as you would have during peak periods. Save money whenever you can; small amounts here and there add up to huge sums in the longrun.
