Be Careful When Traveling, More Disney Discounts and More Travel News On Tuesday, February 10th, 2015

A scary story about how a friend of mine’s mom got stalked and robbed on their trip together.  Suffice it to say that I’ve had my fair share of close calls with pick pockets and weird people traveling.  There are obviously lots of bad people and it pays to be vigilant when traveling.

A new service that helps you find cheap day rooms (and a pretty nice giveaway).

Is it worth it to buy no-expiration Disney tickets?  I did this the first time we went, and I certainly paid less than if I had bough them each time I went.  But, given the time value of money, I probably didn’t save as much as I thought.  Disney doesn’t discount tickets very often, though.  So, every little bit counts.

**As an aside, if you don’t live in Florida or California, AAA will still sell Disney tickets without tax, saving you a few bucks.

Cheap hotel rooms can make better redemption value for your hotel points, says the Wandering Aramean.  While I love high-end redemptions because I’m not willing to shell out some of the exorbitant rates at those properties, I’ve redeemed plenty of Starpoints at properties in the lower categories.  The only thing to watch out for there is that Category 1-3 properties that cater to business travelers during the week may have really low rates on the weekends.  Always check the prevailing paid rate (and any discounts you might be eligible for, like AAA) before redeeming points.

Have you ever booked an airline ticket for the wrong day?  I have, more times than I’m comfortable admitting publicly.
