How to get the best online travel deals

onlinetravelWhen we look back on recent history in a hundred years, we will probably divide time into pre-internet revolution  and post-internet revolution.€ This not entirely unlike how we now look at history in terms of pre and post Industrial Revolution.

The internet has changed how we do almost everythinghow we connect to and communicate to others, how we post classifieds, how we do research, how we travel and more. We are now in an era where booking travel online seems to be about the only way to do it these days. But with the dawn of the internet and Web 2.0, it can be pretty easy to get lost in all the noise out there and be left wondering how you actually go about finding the best travel deals online. Here are a few tips on how to get the best airfares, cheapest hotel rooms and discounted vacation packages using the web:

Score travel deals on Twitter

twitterYou may have dismissed Twitter as yet another online space for blatant self-promotion, but it turns out there is a whole lot more use for Twitter than simply keeping up to date on what Lindsay Lohan ate for breakfast or where Ashton Kutcher woke up this morning. Twitter can also be a powerful tool used for saving money and scoring travel deals. It may even change how exactly you go about making your travel plans.

For example, discount carrier JetBlue has a twitter feed which only announces deals on last-minute flights every Mondayand they aren’t the only airline who has started offering up special fares and promotions via Twitter. (Follow @JetBlueCheeps for the weekly deals)

The greatest part about finding travels on Twitter? You can choose your level of participation on the social networking site. Don’t feel like sending your daily thoughts out into Twitterland? Than simply choose to follow sites and companies that offer up deals via Twitter and check the site exclusively when you are on the prowl for travels deals or in the midst of planning your next vacation. No tweets about your life necessary.

Cheap Las Vegas travel deals

lasvegasstripI love to hate Las Vegas. Or should I say I hate to love Las Vegas? Maybe it’s a little bit of both. While Vegas is certainly the home of over-the-top excess, the capital of tacky and the definition of so many things I claim to dislike (especially in a travel destination) there is just something slightly irresistible about Vegas. Maybe it’s the lack of open container laws or social acceptance of day-light drinking, but despite the huge number of lakes and fountains in the desert, sky-high prices and Dinseyland for adults feeling, I have to admit Vegas is a whole lot of fun. From great shows to highly rated restaurants, adding on to the list of positives for Vegas lately have been some of the absolutely insane travel deals to Sin City that have been popping up pretty much everywhere lately.
