$5/Day One-Way Car Rentals to Florida Right Now

By Jason Cochran

Posted on 09/20/2017, 11:00 PM

It's time for the Great Florida Drive-In. Each autumn, the major rental car brands need to shift inventory to their parking lots in Florida to meet winter tourist demand.  Normally, it'll cost a hefty extra fee to drop off a rental car in a different location than where you picked it up. Not right now. For the next few weeks, renters in the northeastern United States will find deals that hover aro...

By Jason Cochran

Posted on 08/15/2016, 8:00 AM

After only a year and half on the market, Booking.com is euthanizing Booking Now, its app specifically designed for last-minute hotel deals.   When it was released in January 2015, Booking Now was hailed by publications such as Wired as a probable silver bullet to slay reigning last-minute hotel deals app Hotel Tonight. It even expanded development to include iOS, Android, and the Appl...

A Major Study Is Out And What It Says About Trends In Airfares Could Save You Big Bucks

By Pauline Frommer

For aviation geeks (like me), the day that the Airline Reporting Corporation releases its annual survey of airfares feels like a birthday—one on which you don’t get any older. And this year, I felt like I was getting miraculously younger because the ARC joined forces with the Expedia family of brands to put out one lollapalooza of a survey. Together, the computers of these two travel gian...

Hurry! Everything in Canada is 25% Off!

On Tuesday, August 4, the Canadian dollar cratered, suffering its lowest value in 11 years. The loonie, which a few years ago had parity with the U.S. dollar, is now worth only 76¢. (It's not doing so well against the British pound, either.) That's right: Things haven't been cheaper in Canada since 2004. That means that this summer—right this very minute—is the best time to visit ...

Free Stay in Tahiti If You Go to New Zealand

Posted on 06/03/2015, 2:30 PM

The thing that stops most people from going to French Polynesia is the cost. It can cost as much to fly midway across the South Pacific to Tahiti as it can to go all the way across the ocean to New Zealand or Australia. Air Tahiti Nui has announced a great deal that makes it easier: a free three-night stopover, hotel included, for passengers who book round-trip tickets from Los Angeles to Auck...

By Pauline Frommer

Posted on 11/24/2014, 10:45 PM

According to the shopping experts who gab away on morning TV, TODAY will be the best day to shop if you're in the market for the usual gifts (sweaters, gadgets, toys, jewelry, what have you). But those shopping for travel will likely do better to wait until Friday or Monday. That's when the deals are popping, along with the marketing ploys masquerading as deals. We've sorted the wheat fro...

Hotel Tonight is No Longer Just for Hotels Tonight

By Jason Cochran

Posted on 09/29/2014, 4:45 PM

The handy and ever-growing booking app Hotel Tonight has officially made its name only somewhat true. From now on, you can book a discounted last-minute hotel room for tonight or you can book a room for anytime in the next seven days. What has always made Hotel Tonight a little different is it hasn't simply yanked prices from a common database the way so many hotel booking apps do. It nego...

Icelandair Makes Viral Video to Remind You About Free Stopovers

By Jason Cochran

Posted on 09/26/2014, 2:30 PM

Budget travelers have long known about Icelandair's competitive deals on airfare to Europe, but the general public could use the good news. If you're willing to make a pit stop in Reykjavik before carrying on across the ocean, you can usually score some terrific deals on transatlantic airfare.  The comparatively lower airfare is only half the benefit, though. Ordinarily, a layover can be a...
