Goodreads Monday is hosted by Lauren’s Page Turners. All you have to do is show off a book from your TBR that you’re looking forward to reading.
It’s getting hard to remember which ones I’ve done already, so I’m sorry if you see a book pop up on these more than once. It will happen. Probably a lot.
Take More Vacations by Scott Keyes
The founder of Scott’s Cheap Flights explains why we’re searching for airfare all wrong, shares the strategies that have saved his two million newsletter subscribers a collective $500 million on airfare, and presents a bold new approach for how to travel the world.
In normal times, travel is one of the most popular escapes, a perennial top New Year’s resolution. Although 2020 has been anything but a great year for travel, once it’s safe again we’ll all be eager to make up for lost time. When that day comes, Scott Keyes will be there to make sure we never overpay for flights again. After all, vacations are supposed to be fun escapes, but the confusion of buying flights—not knowing when to book, where to buy, what to pay, or where to go—can erode the joy of travel.
Though airfare can be unpredictable, it’s not indecipherable. With an understanding of how airfare works and a new strategy for planning vacations, anyone can get up and go. Take More Vacations will first explain what’s stopping us from traveling as much as we want to and the cognitive biases that push us to overpay for flights. Readers will discover why the traditional way of planning vacations undercuts our ability to enjoy them, and how a new approach can lead to cheaper fares and more trips.
Next, Keyes explains why cheap flights never have to be inconvenient flights, and all the steps you can take to get a good fare even when you don’t have flexibility. He lays out practical advice on when and where to book, the hidden reason to avoid budget airlines, and the surprising best week for international travel. He debunks myths (don’t bother clearing your cookies), explains why airlines regularly sell $300 roundtrip flights to Europe, and shows how small airports actually get the best deals.
Imagine if vacation planning was as fun as the trip itself. Take More Vacations challenges the conventional wisdom that it costs thousands of dollars to fly overseas and shows readers how to make previously unthinkable trips possible.
I picked this up recently with hopes that I can find at least one good travel tip. Have you read this? Do you find good travel deals often?
