YMMV Travel Deals: Wed., May 23, 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 today:

This Place Is Like Taking A Time Machine Back To Key West In The 1920’s

Sharon and I have visited Key West many times and we actually started planning this trip shortly after Hurricane Irma hit the Florida Keys last year. We wanted to visit more sooner than later to help support tourism since people will often avoid places after natural disasters. Even though we’ve found that when visiting Key West we’d rather spend time at an independent hotel than at at a chain property, I just couldn’t pass us a chance to stay at this hotel. This all worked out because before Citi discontinued their Hilton credit cards last year, we signed up for the Hilton Honors Reserve card. Instead of points, like most cards offer as a sign up bonus, this card was offering two weekend nights at any of the Hilton brand hotels. That’s including the Waldorf Astoria properties (well, except for several hotels that were excluded from the offer).

Since this would probably be my only chance to stay at this hotel, I went ahead and booked a Friday to Sunday stay at the Casa Marina Key West, A Waldorf Astoria Resort. Continue reading “This Place Is Like Taking A Time Machine Back To Key West In The 1920’s”

This Might Be The Happiest Airport Employee EVER!

It’s pretty rare to see people who really, REALLY love their job. Oh sure, you’ll sometimes see people who look like they’re OK with what they do, and act accordingly. But you just as often see the ones who look like they haven’t enjoyed their jobs in years. You know the ones I mean – the burnt out ones with the sour pusses and the “customers stink” personalities. The ones who tell you that your carry-on is too big when it isn’t, or whose very lives seem to depend on the two words that are ruining the travel service industry.

One of the exceptions? This guy. And amazingly enough, he works for a place where the sourpusses tend to overpopulate the good employees by a bajillion to one – the airline industry. And if what he does during his job doesn’t put a smile on your face, I don’t know what will.
