Leaving on a Jet Plane

Can you believe that Blogger Interactive is only 5 weeks away? We’ve been so focused on putting the finishing touches on it that we didn’t realize how quickly it was sneaking up on us. We’re really excited to meet everyone, and leave our stamp on the Lone Star State.

Word on the street is that some of you would love to go, but aren’t sure if you can afford it. We don’t want that to prevent any of you from going to the Greatest Conference on Earthâ„¢. This is why we’ve put together the following list of sites for traveling on the cheap. We want to change all of you maybes to yeses.

Airfare & Hotel

Southwest Airlines – They always have specials, and your bags fly for free!

Kayak – Search hundred of travel sites and book flights, hotels, vacations and rental cars

Booking Buddy – Similar to Kayak, Booking Buddy lets you price comparison shop

Hotwire – One of the original discount travel sites

Booking.com – Killer deals on hotels that are unpublished anywhere else

Yahoo! Travel – Searches multiple airlines, and often offers competitive rates

Airbnb – Vacation rentals, often times for much less than what you’d pay at a hotel.

Couchsurfing– Feeling adventurous? Stay on a stranger’s couch!
