YMMV Travel Deals & Discounts: Tuesday, March 19, 2019

When we see travel deals, we always want to spread the word. So as we see them, we make sure to let you know. They run the gamut from hotels to flights to points to miles to car rentals and even stuff you need while you’ll traveling, like equipment, Uber discounts, theme park tickets, food for when you’re on the road, etc.

Heads up that some of these deals might be really limited in time or amount, or some could go on for days or longer. Some deals might be good for some people and not so much for others. There may be better deals out there and we just don’t know about them. We take no responsibility for any transaction you may or may not do; we’re just telling you what’s we’ve seen that’s out there at that very moment and it’s up to you to decide if it’s something useful, beneficial and worth it for you, and if you can take advantage of it before it’s too late. We take no responsibility for deals that are pulled before the “deal ends” date.

Here’s what’s out there right now:

Uber/Lyft Drivers Have A New Way To Scam Customers & I Think It’s The Most Despicable One Yet

Joe is a fan of Uber and Lyft. I am not. My main concern used to only be if I had to take a ride-sharing ride by myself. I’m a female and, at 4’6″ tall, a pint-sized one, at that. So I just never felt safe taking a ride without someone else with me.

Unfortunately, even if you’re the type of person to follow the seven rules of being a good Uber/Lyft passenger, drivers have figured out ways to try to get more money from their ride customers. One of our Uber drivers in Las Vegas tried to screw us by taking a longer route, which caused our bill to go from $20 something to $40 something. We also wrote about drivers around the world who were falsely reporting their customers made a mess in their car – it’s called Vomit Fraud. Now there’s apparently this new thing that may be making the rounds:

This Perfect Road Trip Will Keep You In 70 Degree Weather The Whole Time

Who doesn’t love a road trip? And why shouldn’t we? The United States has 164,000 miles of highway, 58 national parks, and thousands of roadside attractions ranging from dinosaurs in the desert of California to Hillbilly Mini Golf in Tennessee to a (possibly haunted) cave off Rt. 66 to the infamous South of The Border (right over the state line in South Carolina).

One potential problem with road trips is the weather. Depending on where you’re going and when you’re going there, severe heat or cold could put a real damper on your trip, especially any time you have to go outside. Well, one smart Redditor has made the ultimate road trip – one that not only could take you a year to complete, but will keep you in roughly 70 degree weather for the whole trip.

Plan To Fly On April 6th? You Might Want To Think Twice About That

Do you remember Y2K, when January 1, 2000 was coming around the bend and everyone was worried that the world was going to end (well, figuratively, not necessarily literally) because the electronics of the world that used time/calendar as part of its interface couldn’t handle going to 01/01/00, 00:00?

Well, we have another “crisis” coming up, this time on April 6th, 2019. But this time it’s not because of clocks.
