Black Friday is around the corner and Christmas is at hand’s reach, so it’s time to start looking for presents. For the travel lovers, here are the best ideas and tips to make the most out of the sales, and keep yourself, or your travel-addict friends, happy.
Airlines usually have incredible offers. Ryanair and Easy Jet have return tickets from €20 all over Europe, and even connecting Europe with Africa and Asia. In South America Latam is offering up to 63% discount. If you don’t have a specific destination in mind, and you want to go ‘everywhere’, take a look at Skyscanner. You tell them from where you’re flying and they will tell you to where and when the cheapest tickets are available (like this I managed to get a £7 London–Bucharest ticket, and a £8 London–Warsaw one! Yes, that’s final price. Pretty awesome, right?).
When it comes to where to stay, Booking.com has great deals! I just saw hotel rooms from 8 USD in Rio de Janeiro, from 9 USD in Kuala Lumpur, and from 15 USD in London! Don’t miss out!
If you make your booking clicking here or in any of the banners in the blog, at no extra cost to you I’ll get a small commission that’ll help me keep this blog going. It’s a win–win situation. I inspire you and give you helpful tips, and when you do book that trip, you’ll help me out 🙂
