February 25, 2014 at 12:41 PM | by | ()

Rental Road Trip on the Cheap with One-way Deals in Arizona

February 13, 2014 at 9:49 AM | by | ()

There’s been plenty of deals to drive rental cars out of certain states and into other states as well; however, we’re not sure that has been the case at the same time. Hertz is either confused, or they just are really excited about the state of Arizona. The rental car company is now offering up one-way deals for those looking to depart from or arrive to the Grand Canyon State.

Heading into the state is the better option, so we’ll start with that. Drive into Arizona deals can be had starting at $5 per day on economy cars, and if you’re looking for something a little better—they also promise a good deal on other car classes. You need to book your reservation sooner than later, and pickup the car prior to March 10. Just utilize RQ “ICFLT1” to score the deal, and be sure to grab your car at a participating location. This includes options rented in and around Southern California, Las Vegas, San Antonio, Austin, El Paso, and the state of New Mexico.

Does Priceline's 'Name Your Own Price' Actually Work for Airfares? Yes and Yes.

February 5, 2014 at 10:08 AM | by | ()

Airfares were high and hope for a deal was low. There has to be someone to turn to in times like these, and there is: the Priceline Negotiator. We're not affiliated with Priceline in any way, but we are skeptics who somehow manage to make their Name Your Own Price tool work for us and our wallet.

The going rate for a last-minute NYC-Memphis roundtrip was $515. No way were we about to pay that for a trip that was just for fun. Since it wouldn’t kill anyone if we didn’t go, we decided to do so only if we could score a deal using Priceline’s Name Your Own Price tool.

In our prior successful use of Priceline Name Your Own Price, we went ahead with some of Priceline’s suggested flight options promising a better chance at a lower price, like choosing Newark-EWR as our first-choice NYC airport (even though it totally isn’t). For that trip, we ended up paying $350 for a Delta roundtrip via Atlanta.

The Return of the $10 Rental Car Deal

May 29, 2013 at 10:10 AM | by | ()

Earlier this year we saw the annual return of the one-way rental car deals out of places like Florida, but this year the deals weren’t as extreme as in years past. Thankfully the rental car companies must have come to their senses, as it looks like the deals have expanded and become an even better deal.

Up first is Avis, as they have too many cars down in Florida and need to move ‘em elsewhere. You’ll be paying $9.95 per day for subcompact through standard car options, and you have through June 30 to book things and to get moving.

Enter AWD # S705900 when you’re ready to confirm, and you should be all set. All the details including the pickup locations can be found right here, as well as the drop off locations which include spots like New York, Connecticut, Michigan, Illinois and Colorado.

Does Priceline's 'Name Your Own Price' Actually Work for Airfares?

April 18, 2013 at 11:30 AM | by | ()

"Name Your Own Price." What a tempting offer, and it's one the Priceline travel booking website offers to anyone who's game. We're game. Name our own price for a hotel? Do it all the time. Name our own price for a rental car? Sure. But name our own price for a flight? Stressful!

So we tried it out.

Deciding to name your own price means you must be flexible in two very important areas: airline and flight times. Priceline will allow you to secure flights on exact dates, with exact airports of your choice, but you've got to let them take care of everything else if you're to get a sweet deal. Luckily for us, we weren't going to be picky on a last-minute itinerary for fun.

So here's what happened.

Flash Your Korean Air Boarding Pass for On-the-Ground Discounts

Where: Korea
December 20, 2012 at 10:30 AM | by | ()

We’ve seen all kinds of advertisements and stuff scrolled across our boarding passes—even a little Sudoku game now and then. Now there’s an airline upping the ante on the boarding pass offerings, as they’re handing out their own version of coupons, discounts, and other deals. Sure it’s a chance for them to sell a little bit of advertising and making a couple bucks, but maybe you’ll actually benefit.

It’s Korean Air that’s getting into the boarding pass coupon-clipping game, as they’re releasing something called “Excellent Boarding Pass.” Like we said a minute ago, it’s all about providing benefits and discounts to stuff like restaurants, movies, banks, and kind of anything else where you can save a few dollars.

We know you've planned your itinerary for overindulgence this week, but there’s still time to tweak things a little bit in advance of the shopping bonanzas known as Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Sure you can head out into the dark of the early morning hours in search of a discounted television, computer, or toaster, or you can just fire up the laptop, tablet, or phone and look for some travel deals. We’re not exactly sure who will be offering what—that’s the surprise of Black Friday—but here’s some hints.

· Cathay Pacific is doing something, but we’re not sure exactly what. They have a landing page set up and ready to go promising a “Black Friday Exclusive,” and requesting us to check back with them at midnight on November 23.

Expect the discount to apply for travel through February 2013, and it sounds like those booking tickets will even be entered into a special contest.
