For some of you people who followed and stalk my blog lol ( just kidding ) will notice I travel often mostly Europe and Africa… the questions here is am I a baller? Girl No way lol… I’m still doing my 9-5 folks.
Google Flight is my sugar daddy who offer me cheap flights and route to travel between cities whenever I’m in Europe. I know some young and old folks want to travel out of the country but struggled with planning and some have financial issues. Don’t worry I got some tips for you.
*Tips before packing your bags!
Remember to start looking for your ticket at least 8 weeks to the date of your departure. Tuesday and Thursday between 12-3 pm eastern time are the best time to search for tickets. Also, your traveling date should be in the middle of the week and your return flight should be the last day of the weekend.
- Sites to search
Google Flight gives you options to explore dates, different countries and the site show which countries ticket that is currently cheap. Google flight also allows you to track your ticket without paying, notify you when prices increase or decrease.
Priceline is good for us the last minute travelers lol.. I mean if you check their website they have express deals and they give you options to depart early and return midday during the week.
CheapTickets is one of my favorites since college days.. You can get amazing deals including hotels package and rental car for discounted prices.
Momondo is what I’m currently using to search for flights and hotels. it is a great app to search for tickets when you are planning a trip to Europe or Africa. Momondo was introduced to me by a friend who visited me from the United Kingdom.
Getting a portable and durable luggage is something you want to invest in before traveling out of the country.
*Size of your luggage!
Traveling with smaller luggage gives you more stability to move around and reduces the stress of traveling with heavy luggage. You can hops from one plane to another, one train to another and catch the buses to the nearest cities with less hustle and flexibility.
*SECURITY AT AIRPORT
Dressing casual is one good thing you can do for yourself when you are traveling. Make sure you wear comfortable shoes and clothes to avoid missing your flight.
TSA makes you remove everything you wearing which include your necklace, watches, bracelets, shoes, and belts.
Despite security efforts in making our airports safe, it’s advisable, you watch your valuable items!
Be alert and travel stress-free!
