YMMV Travel Deals: Thur., Sept. 13, 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:

What Can You Do When Traveling During Or Right After A Hurricane?

Hurricane Florence is heading for the east coast of the United States and we hope all of those in the path of the hurricane do everything to stay safe. As residents of Florida, we know what it’s like to see one of these storms heading right for you. Just know that you all are on our minds and we hope for the best possible outcome.

We also realize there are a bunch of other people out there who aren’t affected by the hurricane. They have travel plans set for a once in a lifetime trip. Maybe it’s a trip to Walt Disney World with the kids for the first time or a honeymoon in Hawaii or a bucket list trip to see the temples of Southeast Asia. Whatever it is you have planned, there’s a good chance that if you have air travel planned in the U.S. during the next week or so, Florence is going to wreak havoc on those plans and that’s the main thing on your mind right now. I understand, it’s the difference between experiencing a tragedy and being affected by it. I totally get it.

There’s not much I can do for those in the path of the storm besides telling you to evacuate if advised, hunker down and be safe if you’re allowed to stay, and make sure you have plenty of fresh water, batteries and non-perishable food (and alcohol). For those who have travel plans affected by the storm, here are some tips of what you can do to make sure you’re able to go on that trip (and, quite frankly, if you even should).

Our Long Term Love Affair With The Best Water Park In The World: Schlitterbahn, In New Braunfels, Texas

Joe and I have been going to Schlitterbahn Water Park in New Braunfels, Texas, nearly every year since 2006. For us, it’s our “happy place” vacation, where we don’t have to plan anything; we know where we’re going to go for the whole trip and we can “just go,” and play, relax and eat delicious food. Well, and visit Buc-ee’s, too. Probably several times (but I’m not obsessed).

So many people we know have more traditional places to visit every year. The mountains. The shore. How and why did we wind up with a water park like Schlitterbahn as our annual “go to” vacation? Well, I’ll tell ya…
