Can it really be the end of the month already? Wow! Besides being the month of our Facebook Group‘s “birthday” (it turned ONE YEAR OLD on February 25th, y’all!), the same group surpassed 5,000 members ON ITS ACTUAL BIRTHDAY! February was also record-breaking month for us in terms of readership – THANK-YOU, travel friends!

Here are our most popular posts for February 2019. Several of them were actually written before February (some were written QUITE a while before – heads up that rules and offers change and we can’t guarantee that those older ones are still accurate), so take a look so you don’t miss any of the good stuff:

YMMV Travel Deals & Discounts: Tuesday., Feb. 26, 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:

How To Eat At A Crowded Restaurant With No Reservation

When you’re traveling, it’s not always easy to determine when, where or even what time you’re going to have dinner. There may be a place you’re going to make it your business to visit (like when we went to Sedona specifically to eat at a particular restaurant) but if you’re anything like us, for the most part, you decide to eat on a spur of the moment basis. That’s all well and good, except for two things…

How To Easily Know What Side A Rental Car’s Gas Cap Is On

Has this ever happened to you? You’re in a rental car and you need to buy gasoline for it. You get to the gas station and…wait, what side is the gas cap on? It’s on the driver’s side on your car at home, and was on the passenger’s side on the car you had before that one, but what about on this car?

Of course, unless you have a Plymouth Pacer (Joe’s family had one when he was growing up), an AMC Gremlin (my family had one when I was growing up) or a few other cars where the gas cap was on the BACK of the car, your chances are 50/50 for left or right, and if you get it wrong, it’s not really a huge deal – many gas pumps have extra long nozzles so they’ll reach to the other side. Or at worst, you’ll have to pull out and pull back in so the “other side” is facing the pump.

But wouldn’t it be nice if there was a way to just “know” what side the gas cap was on?

Turns out, there is.
