I’m a firm believer that to truly make the most of any adventure, it’s required to read up on some background knowledge to acquaint yourself with a new culture. For this, I often turn to Rick Steves’ traveling philosophies which strongly align with my own, stating that affording travel is simply a matter of priorities and often times, “spending more money only builds a thicker wall between you and what you traveled so far to see.” While staying in a fancy hotel and signing up for the numerous excursions obnoxiously advertised to you in the lavish lobbies can be exciting, they many...

This is a great example of why the lowest price isn't always the best deal. I do always keep this fact in mind when deciding what deals to post. Availability...

Cheap ticket prices aren’t expected to last. This story originally appeared on Fortune.com. This month, the average price for a round-trip airline ticket is projected to dip to $210—almost 15% lower than last January—according to a report by the airfare price predicting app Hopper. In a blog post, Hopper’s chief data scientist Patrick Surry said that the plummeting ticket prices are largely due to cheap oil, increased competition, and the race among major airlines to provide cheap, bare-bones ticket options. In the first nine months of 2015, the four largest airlines in the United States saved over $11 billion collectively in fuel...
