Book Cheap Hotels Near Airports

Make Use of a Search Engine

First of all, what’s a search engine? One thing, it’s not remotely as grandiose as it sounds. It simply means a search engine that takes your input and uses third party search engines to dig up results. So, if you search for a booking with your desired attributes, like price, location, star grade, etc., it will piggyback on another search engine, say the mighty Google, to gather information specific to your query.

It’s possible to ask, “why not just go to different hotel websites or some discount site to get what you’re looking for? Well, that’s what you’ll be doing with a search engine actually, except you will have results from website A, B, C, D, and any other necessary sites as one. This will reveal the cheapest rooms that you can book easily.

Contact the Hotel Directly

Getting cheap bookings for hotels near airports might simply involve calling the one you’re considering. You don’t have to be a genius to figure this one out. It’s obvious, but it can work wonders in two ways.

Firstly, not all airport hotel deals are advertised online. It may be done through one medium or another but sometimes, it is not done using all means you might expect. But one thing you can count on is the stuff being privy, to what’s cheap and what’s not at all times. Calling them directly is definitely a great way of getting to the info.

Secondly, hotel stuff will give you insider information as to why airport hotel prices are high. It might be due to some conference, convention, or even a concert by a big time musical entity. With this info, you can then focus your scouting on areas a good distance from the high-demand parts.

Look for Cancellable Rates

This trick involves playing unfaithful with multiple bookings of different hotels near airports. In a nutshell, you find cancellable rates, then monitor them until the last moments to end up with the cheapest.

The essence of the trick is that room rates go through considerable and relatively rapid fluctuation. What’s low now may soon be high as quickly as within a couple of minutes. As the uncheatable law of supply and demand would have it, the more people are booking, the higher the prices. It is important to make sure that the rates are actually cancellable.

Info Sea of Cortez

The Sea of Cortez is incredibly diverse in marine life. From a stone and stucco beach house on the Baja Peninsula, you may see whales breach 200 yards offshore! One of the finest things that I have ever seen was a sunset viewed from a Spanish stone arch doorway that led to a beach-level patio at Altata, on the Sea of Cortez. It wasn’t just the colors of the sunset, but the warm feeling in the air, the allure of old Spanish Mexico, and the aroma of delicious food that cooked over a fire pit, that brings my memory of that place alive.

Every town along that sea originated as a sleepy fishing village. Most still are that, but American tourism has caused changes, especially when the village becomes popular because it is mentioned in a film. Zihuatanejo is not on the sea (it is farther south on the Mexican West Coast), but it used to be mostly a fishing village. Now, cruise ships go there to bring thousands of people to see where Andy Dufresne hid after he escaped a New England prison in the film “Shawshank Redemption.” Andy told Red, “Hope is a good thing, maybe the best of things, and no good thing dies.”

If you are a diver, you must experience the Sea of Cortez. It easily makes the top ten list of best world diving locations, especially to see whales. Several species use the sea as a nursery, where the females deliver calves. Perhaps you will see a rare Vaquita Porpoise on your trip. Bring an underwater video camera to capture these rare moments, not only to catalog your vacation, but to post online for others to see. Private party wildlife videos have become very popular public entertainment. Since you may get sponsors who wish to advertise on your video, it might be worth hiring an underwater photographer to come with you to record your adventure professionally.

Survive a Long Commute

  • Leave early! Your commute is much more likely to be harrowing and stressful if you are running late. Leaving a few minutes earlier than you think you need to provides a buffer in case something goes wrong. And if you’re driving you’ll be less likely to speed since you won’t be trying to make up for lost time. That means increased safety for you and other drivers on the road.
  • Listen to podcasts. Downloading podcasts to listen to while you drive or walk provides an opportunity to learn about virtually any subject or topic. TED talks are a great place to start. If you love reading, why not try buying (or borrowing) an audiobook? I have a friend who swears by these.
  • Tune in to local radio stations. Some morning radio shows are downright funny and entertaining. My favorites are the ones where listeners call in to play trivia games.
  • Learn a new language. I’m finally making use of a CD set I purchased a few years ago and have been learning French for the last two months during my commute. If you use a mode of transportation where your hands are free (like a train or bus) you can use smartphone apps like Duolingo to learn a language of your choice.
  • Make phone calls. Depending on which state or country you live in, cell phone usage while driving may be legal. If this is the case, your afternoon commute may be a perfect time to catch up with family and friends. (Perhaps the morning commute as well, but depending on what time you’re calling, others may not be too thrilled to hear from you.) Use a hands-free device if necessary!

Planning for Long Weekends

Pre Planning for Long Weekend Outing

But then again, while going for a long weekend, escaping from your daily routine comes with a price of planning and packing in advance.

Planning requires many things to be considered beforehand. What should I carry with me? What should I wear on the journey?

What kind of dress should I pack for the party, the dinner, and trip to explore the city?

There are many things, you have to plan to go for a long weekend outing.

Packing these kinds of stuff is not a difficult or tiring task; the difficult task is to decide.

It is to choose which garb to pack. Let us help you a little in this weary task.

Here are some ideas that you might want to consider for attires to be packed.

“Travel and change of place impart new vigour to the mind.” Travelling is something which we all love. But even during travel, we have to clinch what clothes we want to wear. As it is very much important for us to be comfortable even during travel. These are some of the garbs you might want to take a look to determine from.

Dress by default – You never want to dress up like a bum or a hobo to go on a journey. You won’t want to overdo your look, but you won’t even want to look like someone who just woke up from the bed.

Dress up comfortably- Dressing up comfortably is a must. You won’t want to wear your tight jeans for travelling. Wearing some trousers, joggers who have some room in them are ideal to wear for a journey. Wearing fitting t-shirts or shirts in which we feel tight is never comfortable to wear for an expedition. It would be best if you go with your loose tees to wear for a trip.

Use quality luggage – Luggage is a vital thing for your travel. You would always want a luggage which would keep your clothing safe, keep you organized and at last your luggage should be able to take thumping here and there and still protect your gadgets. Luggage should be easy to carry and light in weight.

Comfortable shoes – Wearing comfortable shoes is as crucial as wearing a comfortable attire. You can never expect to have a comfortable journey wearing your heels or wedges or even your many straps boots. Wearing sports shoes & sneakers is the best option to go with other than slippers/floaters. Both slippers and shoes would be very comfortable for you to wear and remove whenever you wish without doing much work.

Some travelling tips and tricks that’ll help you a lot –

  • Pack less: Do you really need six pairs of heels, an iron and 6 jeans? Travelling with the least luggage should be your goal. Take less and you’ll travel faster and easier if travelling by flight then even cheaper.
  • Learn a little: Learning a new language never hurts. So learn few words o the local language and have the courage to use them. Just a few words will go a long way; locals tend to warm to those who try communicating to them in their own tongue.
  • Hoodie: Always pack a hoodie in your luggage. Hooded tops make excellent travel garments, just slip up your hood to retreat from the world of noise and light when you want to sleep.
  • Bring your earplugs: If silence is golden, then ear plugs are worth their weight in platinum. For a long trip, invest in some good noise cancelling headphones. They are worth every penny to tune out a noisy road, snoring man or chattering people.
  • Pack reading stuff: Always pack some stuff that you can read on your long journey, be it a paperback or Kindle. Kindle are made for long travels, no more carrying heavy paperbacks, increasing your luggage weight and have many books to read.
  • Roll your clothes while packing rather than folding them.
  • Carry Sun glasses & Sun Screens to take care of yourselves from intense sun beams
  • Carry little extra cash: Always carry cash, while travelling. Not too much as it can get stolen and you’ll always have ATM to take out some cash. Carrying some cash is required as what if the ATM you go to stopped working or doesn’t have cash. So have some cash with you that you can use when necessary.
  • Keep balm / Mosquito repellent: Balm not only soothes your sore muscles after a lot of travelling but also works as an insect repellent, mosquito repellent is other must have in the travel.
  • Wake up early: Rise before sunrise, it’s a magical time for clicking photos due to soft diffused light. Have the best attractions to yourself while avoiding crowds.
  • Don’t feel embarrassed: Even if you do something embarrassing, don’t feel embarrassed. Laugh at yourself with others. Don’t be afraid if things are screwed up. You will definitely look like a fool while travelling to new places. But it’s worth enjoying every moment.
  • Take a lot of photos: Great photos are ultimate souvenirs. You meet those people once so capture with your camera in a form of photo.
  • Back up: Keep a backup of your documents like passport, driver’s license, etc. backup your files and photos of your computer on an external hard drive and online with some storage in the cloud. You never know when your laptop, wallet or luggage might get stolen.
  • Get lost: Write down the name of your hotel so you can catch a taxi back if needed, then just pick up a direction and start walking. Explore the place on your own. You’ll get to see how people live and work in different regions, the actual part of the town with your own eyes rather than other tourist or someone else’s eyes.
  • Eat local food: Going to a new place and not eating their local food, that’s absurd. Go, eat and explore their taste and delicacies.
  • Break out of your comfort zone: Go on a solo trip. Break out of your comfort zone, meet new people, interact with them, learn from them and make some lifetime memories.

If you, however, want to fly out then make sure that you keep the travel time in mind. Also, if you are looking for the lowest airfares on domestic flights, then the shorter the distance, the cheaper they will be.

When you are going on a vacation, you might have some idea about what you would like to do while you are at it. If you are just going to destress, then you don’t have much planning to do. All you need to do before flying out is to book a hotel so that you don’t have to worry about it later. On the other hand, if you want to explore a place, then you must narrow down the places you would like to visit. Get in touch with a travel agent or a local guide who will be able to take you to these places.

Visit a Spa

One of the best ways of giving your body some much need relaxation is to get a spa massage. This will loosen up your knotty muscles and also improve blood flow in your body. Additionally, it will also help you get rid of all work related worries and just enjoy the vacation. However, pick a spa wisely. Generally, hotels have spas or can put you in touch with one.

Availing Taxi Services

The advantages of hiring a taxi-

  • Easy hiring- Unlike the earlier times, one does not have to wait for a long time to hire a taxi waving their arms. Much to the misfortune they were later found to be already taken. Now, it has become much simple and easy. The service providers have made use of the technology to launch their apps, through which a person can check the availability of the taxis nearby, connect to the drivers, and make quick bookings. The customers can also place a call to the customer care numbers to make sure that the bookings are done and the cab reaches them right on time.
  • In emergency- In times when your car breaks down you can hire a taxi to reach you to the destination. Even when you know that your car will come after a few days you can take the help of the taxi service by booking one well in advance. If you are going out for grocery shopping you can get a cab that has a sizable trunk to fit in your shopping items.
  • Better than a bus- Of course traveling by a bus is a lot affordable, but do you have any idea when you will be reaching to your destination? Buses take relatively longer time because it has to give a halt at every bus stop. The speed of the bus is also quite slow. Another aspect is that the bus will not drop you where you want to go and you still might have to walk after you get off a bus. If you are in a taxi you won’t have to face such things. The taxi will drop you right at your destination and without losing much of your precious time.
