Tips for planning your trip by yourself.
For those of you that plan your trip yourself and not through a travel agency, here are some tips for you, suggested by experienced travelers in travel planning.
- Book your airline tickets on a weekend; prices are 19% less (This does not mean that traveling on weekends is cheaper, just booking your tickets on the weekend!).
- Tuesday, Wednesday, and Saturday are the best days to fly. Choose these days if possible
- For hotels, use www.hotelscombined.com (1st choice) or www.booking.com (2nd choice).
- River cruises are the newest big trend. Use www.rivercruising.com to book your river cruise. You get the best deals at the last minute or when you book in advance for low season. For cruising in general, always book with a travel agent because they are often given perks or discounts they can pass on to you. However, do not to take a cruise if you’re more interested in sightseeing on land.
