YMMV Travel Deals: Tuesday., Nov. 20, 2018

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.

Here’s what’s out there right now:

Get One Of My Must Have Travel Apps For Half Price

One of the reasons I don’t use an ad blocker on Facebook (even though I really want to) is because I’ll occasionally see deals for things I want. I know that’s the point of Facebook following me and pushing customized ads into my newsfeed, but I’m willing to play along if I can pick up some great deals here and there.

I noticed an ad for TripIt kept showing up. When I looked closer, I saw it was offering a year membership for TripIt Pro at 50% off.

The Absolute Least Expensive Way to Travel Off Disney/Universal Property (Or Nearly Anywhere in Central Florida)

Going to Walt Disney World or Universal Studios Florida is expensive. Airline prices are high (although you can look for cheaper prices if you check out this post), park tickets run over $100 per person per day (but you may get some small legitimate discounts through the links on this page), hotels are quite a bit of money (check out the hints on this page for some better prices), food costs a lot, and that’s all before you even think of souvenirs. If you intend to stay on Disney property for your entire trip, you can travel around for free, between Disney’s Magical Express transporting you between the airport and your Disney hotel, and then Disney’s onsite transportation system of buses, monorails and boats to get you to and from the parks and other Disney-run areas. And if you stay on Universal property, you have use of buses, boats and walkways to and from the parks, once you get onto property. But if you’re staying off site, or want to venture out to, say, another theme park, or I-Drive or the outlet malls, you’re looking at even more expense with the use of a taxi, Uber, rental car, etc., right? Well, not necessarily. There’s one more option that’s cheaper than all of those…

How To Use Points And Miles To Attend Concerts

Sharon and I have always loved going to see concerts. Our music tastes aren’t perfectly aligned so there’s only a slice of shows we’re going to want to see every year. We used to stick to shows in our home town of Orlando, which has been getting better quality acts since the Amway Center and the Dr. Phillips Center For Performing Arts have both opened in the last decade,

Occasionally, there are shows we want to see that aren’t anywhere near home and sometimes these are festival or multi-day concerts featuring many bands and performers we really want to see. Other times it’s just a tour that isn’t happening in our home town,

Whether it’s driving across the state to Tampa, Jacksonville or Fort Lauderdale or flying across the country to New York, Chicago or Indio, CA, using points and miles can go a long way towards making ┬árips like these possible, The concert tickets are expensive enough so saving on hotels and transportation is a wonderful thing.
