Summer is coming to an end, and unfortunately I feel like I spent more time chained to my laptop working than I did soaking up the sun and enjoying warm Summer nights.  However I don’t feel too bummed about it because as a frequent flyer, I know the best travel deals occur between September and November, so my love for wanderlust is not lost.

Before the holidays begin (and all the prices jump sky-high), there are several resources I like to use to ensure I’m getting the most bang for my buck.  Starting with Kayak’s Travel Hacker Guide.  Here you will be able to find the cheapest weekends to travel for Domestic and International travel based on time of year and top destinations.  Typically you will nab your best deals if you book the third week of September in the following U.S. cities:

Note:  Check the site for more info on International median airfares.

You can also grab great deals Columbus day weekend, so long as you depart on the Saturday of the holiday weekend and return on Tuesday (after the official holiday).

While Kayak is great for researching ahead the best season to book my travel, I prefer to  use Airfare Watch Dog to find the best flight using their “City to City” alerts notification.  This helps you not only find the cheapest flight, but the one with the best route to ease the stress of hidden additional fees and flight changes.  You can also eliminate any airlines you prefer not to fly (So long United!).  Lastly they have a very informative travel blog that offers extremely useful travel tips, including putting you up on how to fly (almost) free using credit card points.

My final go to travel planning tool is Travel Zoo.  I love travel zoo not just for the travel package deals (although they are great for international trips), but I love finding deals on things to do once I reach my destination, on their Going Out page.  I have used them many times to get huge discounts at popular restaurants, entertainment venues, guided city tours, and spa packages (which are my personal favorite).  Travelzoo has never let me down and their customer service is excellent.

I hope this info inspires you to start researching your next trip, and if so I’d love to hear about where you’re going, and which of the above resources you used to help plan your vacation.  Comment below!

    Thank you! I love these ideas. We have plans already for Europe in Oct and I think we are staying local for the rest of fall. I’m definitely pinning this and sharing for others.

    I also feel most of my summer was spent chained to my laptop! It flew by! But you have given me something to look forward to. I do want to go to Vegas in November if I can so i’ll be looking into this. Thanks!
