Every travel search engine allows you to create an account offering you deals not normally posted and making notifications that much easier. Sometimes I think, “what’s the point?” If they are all basically the same, signing up for one is like signing up for all. And since they’re all just scanning the airlines the same way (more or less) why bother. But this really ins’t the mindset of a true guerrilla traveler.
Case in point: $99 (one way) fares to Stockholm!
Although this deal isn’t exclusive to Expedia (it’s really being offered through WoW airlines) Expedia.com was the first to let me know (even before Wow airlines).
Now granted, I have to get home and airlines have a sneaky way of getting you somewhere for nothing, but taking you home for your first born. So I simply looked for another airline and found a one way back for $160 (this time) on Norwegian airlines. Boom! $260 for almost 4,000 miles worth of travel!
Expedia members get another 10% off, if they book a hotel through their site (you’ll probably spend more in Stockholm than getting there, so be careful).
The point is, cheap travel requires a little effort (emphasis on “little”) and it’s completely worth it. Sign up, read the notifications sent to you and catch every fish that swims by.
