Searching for Cheap Travel Deals

My wanderlust for warm weather is really kicking in right now.

The snow and cold have taken over the U.S. Many of us are dreaming of the warm weather and beaches.
So where should you go? Where are the travel deals?

I talked with a travel agent on one of my flights to Miami who had won a cruise from her travel agency. So that mean she is one of the top producing travel agents at American Express. She shared some travel tips with me.



Great deals are in Cancun, Mexico because of the travel advisories. She went to Cancun last October. She said it is safe. She said it has to be safe. Tourism is their business. That is what tells her clients.

If you are still feeling uneasy about traveling to Mexico then try Punta Cana, Dominican Republic. This destination is primarily for Europeans. However, cheap travel deals are abundant. There are many cheap all-inclusive deals. There are several airlines that fly there so competition exists for your travel dollars.

This travel agent suggested reading the travel reviews on Trip Advisor before booking your next vacation or getaway. The advice on Trip Advisor is pretty accurate according to her.

 American Airlines no longer has airfare through Expedia or Orbitz.

I recommend signing up for the web fare saver alerts. That is the one of the best way to watch the  cheap fares to the Caribbean. American Airlines serves many of the Caribbean Islands. If you want to fly to the Caribbean on American Airlines, book your land package first then your flight on www.aa.com.

Enjoy your next getaway from the cold.

Mmm! I am dreaming of the British Virgin Islands about now. Tortola would be awesome right. Warm sun, crystal blue waters, sugary sandy beaches, swimming, snorkeling, bicycling, magnificent sunrises and sunsets. I am so there right now.
