YMMV Travel Deals: Wed., Aug. 22, 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:

Southwest Airlines Increasing Price Of EarlyBird Check-In. Here’s Why That’s Both Good And Bad

What’s EarlyBird Check-In and who cares if Southwest Airlines is increasing the price of this service? We do, since it’s a service we often purchase and here’s why. Southwest Airlines boarding process is different from all other US airlines. They employ an open seating system where you can choose any seat when you board. All the seats are considered the same so if you want a window, aisle, exit row, bulkhead or even the back row of the plane, if it’s empty, you can sit there. This, of course, makes the order you board the plane very important – the earlier you board, the better your chances of getting the seat(s) you want.  Southwest’s check in process begins at exactly 24 hours before your plane is due to depart and your boarding place is determined by when you check in. Unless you have EarlyBird, which is SouthWest’s “go towards the head of the line” pass. Here’s why Early-Bird is so valuable.

The Four Things You Should Never Spend Your Money On At An Airport

When you’re at an airport, you’re kind of a captive audience. That’s all well and good, but unfortunately, the airport knows that just as much as you do. Now granted, there are some things you really can’t help but buy at the airport, especially if you’re stuck there for a long time (BTW, if you ever are, remember there are lots of free and cheap things you may be able to do while you’re waiting). But if you’re going to be at the airport for a so-called normal amount of time, and can plan ahead, DO IT. It’ll save you a bunch of money.
