Despite the peak travel season ending around the time you came home from that Labor Day excursion, plenty of consumers still have their sights set on vacationing in the months of October, November and December.
The upcoming holidays play a huge role in traveling, which is why companies of that ilk start sending hundreds of emails to inundate your inbox with promotions and deals, one seemingly better than the other on paper.
While the majority of those emails don't draw attention to the fine print but instead focus on that total percentage saved or dollar amount earned, you can't be overly joyous just yet about any of these so called specials until you understand their origin and which ones actually are legitimate versus the ones that are laughable.
A good barometer for travel deals centers somewhat on the company you're dealing with and just how reputable or well known they may (or may not) be. Sites like Orbitz or Travelocity, for instance, are remarkably easy to use and carry a reputation that rather impressive compared to others that wander aimlessly online and promise spectacular, money saving deals only to thoroughly disappoint.
Another rule of thumb that you want to stick to is not being afraid to question a deal that seems too good to be true. You may get lucky and find out that the deal, in fact, is stunning and even the small exclusionary print works in your favor. But a lot of what ails travelers is stumbling across what they assume is a buried treasure that is a wonderful coupon from a lesser known online traveling company, only to realize that this stage coach turned into a pumpkin in the midst of completing the online checkout.
