Traveling is one of the best feelings – yet booking a trip on your own can be the worst.
AAA Travel experts offer three tips to remember when booking travel:
- Flexibility is key. If you are flexible with travel dates, times and even location, you will have a better chance of finding the best pricing on everything from airfare, to admission tickets and hotels.
- Book early – but revisit prices later. It is best to book your trip several months in advance to be sure you get exactly what you want. However, once booked, most travelers never revisit the price. Always re-check the price of your trip before your final payment. If there’s a lower price advertised, ask if the cruise or tour company will honor it.
- Bundle and save. You will likely save money when you book your air, hotel, car rental and activities together at the same time. Most travel vendors offer packages, and they will be cheaper if you book together, instead of booking each service separately. Pre-booking activity bundles, on cruise ships or at destinations, will also save you money.
