Lots of great deals this week in North America, Caribbean, Europe and Asia
Frontier Airlines has been having a ton of fare sales lately. Some of these occurred over the busy summer travel season and represented great values. As we move into fall, we should generally see more sales (and better ones) to fill in empty gaps throughout the rest of the year when travel is a little slower than the heart of summer. These are the lowest prices I’ve seen Frontier offer. This is a one-day sale. Today’s Frontier Airlines sale features $15 one-way fares. Here are some sample fares: From Washington, DC: Atlanta […]

I started doing some searches and literally couldn’t find any saver (cheap) inventory available between any city pairs I tried. Here’s just one example: Then, I started to see […]
Where are the two best (IMO) hotel chains expanding right now? Here’s a sampling of some cool properties to visit or useful properties to earn points at that Hyatt and Starwood are reporting lately: Hyatt opened a new full-service hotel in Atlanta, right in the heart of Midtown. There isn’t a whole lot I’ve stayed at in that part of Atlanta that’s upscale. There’s a Ritz that I’ve never tried and the Westin Peachtree Plaza, which, IMO, is a property that’s a generation too old. I generally stay in Buckhead […]
