I know, I know, it's not really the best time to travel with so many unexpected job losses. I know of people who have gone on a short vacation, just to come back to no job, since the employers felt they could manage very well without them. That is scary indeed.
But, on the off chance that you have a more secure job, that does allow you the leisure of taking job-loss-free vacations, then looking for last minute deals can get you some great rewards. While most assume that unless you book months and months in advance you will not get a good deal, sites like Savings.com offer some great savings.com travel coupons which will end up saving you quite a bit. So forget about just budget travel, get a booking at a five-star hotel at the price of lower than what you would usually pay at a basic three-star.
Certain destinations such as Las Vegas also have some great deals if you book with Las Vegas coupons, which will save you quite a packet. Or how about flying with Southwest using the special Southwest airline promo code, for a good deal on flights. Besides some last minute deals, there are also some great golf getaway packages at a superb reduction these days. As a leisure golfer, I know how much fun it can be to go for a nice relaxing golfing vacation, where all one does is play a few rounds, relax and plan some more golf. And yes, if there's a tournament nearby, it's a good idea to go watch the pro's play as well.
