As you know, we love to travel. For this month, my posts are going to be about how we plan the day to day details of our upcoming cruise.
I spend a lot of time in the details ahead of the trip to get the best. That’s everything from airfare, hotel, attraction admissions, tours and more.
Once we decide on a vacation, then come the major components – airfare and hotel. Today, I’ll talk about airfare. I do my research and check airfares. For this trip, it means looking at direct flights and connecting flights over a series of weeks (sometimes months) to find the best flight (route, day of the week and price). Typically, I find the best day to book the flight is a Tuesday.
That’s the day we actually made the purchase and made the reservation to fly out one day earlier than we planned because the price was that good.
Don’t forget to use the best credit card for the perks. We use our airline credit card, so that checked luggage is free and we get priority boarding – all this by choosing the best credit card. And we earn additional miles for the purchase too.
