Many people today still believe travel is unaffordable. But I love helping people to save money on travel and take more trips as a result.
By now, most of my friends know that I never pay over the odds for my trips and I have to say, I quite proud of my talent for getting seriously cheap deals! Really, I’m just super stingy and don’t like parting with my hard-earned cash, and when it comes down to it, the more money I save on each trip, the more trips I can take each year.
Because of my super stinginess, I frequently get asked by friends to help them book their trips, or to help them save money on travel. And I’m always so happy to lend a hand!
But it occurred to me a while ago that despite knowing exactly where to look for the cheapy-cheap deals, I’ve never actually shared the travel websites I use on my blog. So, without further ado, here are my trusted go-to websites that enable me to save as much dough as possible!
Of course, with a lot of these websites, deals won’t always jump out at you. Sometimes, it can take me weeks to find the right price, so you have to be persistent!
