Federal Employee Airline Discounts
When traveling just about anywhere, the airfare itself is usually a significant part of the cost which is why you should always look for Federal employee airline discounts. Add in hotels, taxi rides, meals – it’s easy to see why traveling can hit your wallet hard. Getting discounts – and saving some money – can help ease the expense and make the journey much more enjoyable.
Some simple suggestions:
Take the time to plan ahead. Anytime you travel at the last minute you’re going to usually be paying much more than if you planned in advance.
Discounts on airfares. Buy your tickets directly from airline websites instead of online travel sites (that usually charge extra fees). The airlines also like you better when you do this. Some even add you to promotional lists that will let you know about other discounts and opportunities to save money.
Check-out online offers. A lot of people don’t like to spend the time “looking” for special deals and offers – but the time you put in can really payoff in big discounts.
Food for the little ones. Pack snacks, treats, drinks for the kids. This can you save you a huge amount of money in extra charges. Have them available for the car ride, airplane trip and the hotel room – and make sure the hotel staff removes the contents of any “mini-bar” in your room.
Hotel Meals. Eat at the hotels you stay in. Most hotels will have discounts for this – if they don’t offer, ask them for a discount. They’ll usually give you one. Also, ask if they have any discounts available for other restaurants in the area.
Skip the car service and taxis. Using buses and other public transit can save you a great deal of money on trips. Ask the hotel for a transit map (they’ll usually give you one for free) and suggestions for the quickest way to get where you’re going.
