Fridays are fun, and not just because the weekend is ahead, but because there’s always a great #TravelSkills Twitter chat happening! Our friends Chris McGinnis and Johnny Jet joined us last Friday to answer questions on winter travel deals, as well as offer great travel tips, as we get knee deep in not just snow, but the busy winter travel season, too.
- Chris revealed that he was able to snag a $220 round trip flight from San Francisco to Hawaii in January during the “Great Recession.” While the first two weeks of December and January are the best time of year to find great last-minute deals, Hawaii is currently one of the more expensive destinations to travel to.
- Johnny and Chris shared their top Twitter handles to follow for last-minute travel deals:
- Hoping to use rewards points for a last-minute flight? Johnny shared that airlines tend to release award space seats about a week before a flight, so make sure to check every day. Need a place to stay once you book that great flight? Best Western has you covered, currently offering up to 20 percent off and 500 bonus reward points for those last minute trips at bestwestern.com
We rounded up a few of the highlights, but make sureto check out the #TravelSkills hashtag on Twitter to see all the great conversations that took place. And if you aren’t already following @JohnnyJet and @cjmcginnis, start now! You can always count on them for great travel tips and stories from the road!
