    Excellent article with some information that I have never seen before, like the exact amount of days ahead you should book your domestic or international flights to get the best deal! Wow!

    If you are looking for a good deal on overnight accommodations, you need THIS in your arsenal! I don’t see it advertised as much as others, but it is one of the best!

    If you want to save up to 80% on hotel rooms, don’t count this resource out!

    I used to like sites like Travelocity, but I quickly found the better way to find deals is to go to the second level – those sites like cheapesthotelreservations dot info who compare hundreds of booking sites in one single search. You not only receive Trivago or Expedia deals but ALL of them in one place.

    I have saved quite a bit of money since I started using them.

    For the second year in a row, HotelsCombined (their partner), has won the title of the World’s Leading Hotel Comparison Website in the 2014 World Travel Awards!

    They also have a guarantee that if you can find a cheaper rate elsewhere they will pay you the difference!

    On No. 6, I flew to Iceland recently and learned through their in-flight ads that those flying to Europe can get up to a week layover on the island for no additional cost. Which is great because I’d LOVE to go back the next time I’m en route to a Euro trip.

    You may want to be careful about the “connecting city” tip. I’ve heard that airlines are actually cracking down on people who do this. Not sure why. Probably because then there’s an empty seat that they could have gotten money for. I’m not sure how well they could track it, but if I recall, some were considering penalties. Ridiculous, but I’d check with the airline.
