You Can Travel For Free This Summer

As the calendars get set to turn to June this week, summer is only a few weeks away. That means, if you haven’t already, it is time to start planning your summer travel itinerary. In many cases, planning ahead of time can be the difference in saving a lot of money. But, did you know that you can actually travel for free, in the right circumstances? ABC News recently wrote an article, discussing ways to travel for free this summer.

  • Home Exchange – What started as a home exchange for teachers on sabbatical has turned into a large service with 65,000 listings. You essentially can trade homes with someone for a period of time. If that thought worries you, many people become friends throughout the process, and trade multiple times over the years.
  • Trusted House Sitter – Would you like to visit a new location, and have your accommodations for free? As long as you love animals, Trusted House Sitter could be a great option. With this program, you take care of someone’s pets, and stay in their home for a predetermined amount of time.
  • Transfer Car – If you have a moldable travel schedule, Transfer Car can allow you to drive a car for free (or nearly free). This program focuses on cars that need to get back to a location, and if it fits into your plans, gas and insurance may even be included.

If any of these services sound good to you, you could just end up traveling for free this summer. And, when a tight budget is the biggest obstacle in many vacations, that can be a great way to have the vacation of a lifetime. Trending Travel would love to help you plan a trip that you will never forget. They can provide you and your loved ones with travel vouchers, discounted travel rates, general travel expertise and more. Contact Trending Travel, today, and get the planning process underway.

Memorial Day Travel Expected To Be Highest In Over A Decade

With Memorial Day weekend coming up, many people have travel plans set.  If you still need to book your travel, you will probably be looking at an expensive proposition. To begin with, Memorial Day weekend is a very busy travel time, even in an average year. However, when that weekend becomes even heavier traveled, the experience can be very difficult. A recent article discussed AAA’s travel forecast for the busy upcoming period.

Are you planning on traveling to see family or friends this Memorial Day weekend? If so, you are definitely not the only one, as AAA projects the busiest period in the last decade. It is expected that 38 million Americans will travel this coming weekend, which is the most since 2005. The fact that gas prices are the lowest in over a decade will give rise to the approximate 700,000 person increase from last year. So, if you will be traveling by plane or car, make sure you are ready to face a crowd.

Any popular travel time that brings families together is a great thing. But, it does mean that you need to be prepared to face long lines at the airport, or heavy traffic in your automobile. If you need some help planning your upcoming trip, you can bring in Trending Travel for assistance. They can provide you with travel vouchers, discounted travel rates, general travel expertise and more. Contact Trending Travel, today, and get the planning process started.

Tips For Your Smartphone While Traveling Abroad

As summer continues to close in, how are your travel plans looking? Many people only have time for vacation during the summer, and they rightfully try to take advantage of that. If you haven’t started the planning process for your upcoming trip, you can save yourself a lot of headache by getting things underway now. And, if you are planning to travel abroad, there are ways to make the trip simpler. The Huffington Post recently wrote an article, discussing smartphone hacks for traveling abroad.

  • Itinerary – Chances are, if you are traveling abroad, there is going to be a lot to monitor. TripIt allows you to gather all the details of your trip, and even share them with all the members traveling in your group.
  • Weather – You aren’t used to the weather conditions of these foreign lands, so it is always worth keeping track of how things look. AccuWeather has a great radar to check, and can keep you from getting caught without an umbrella.
  • Translator – One of the most important tools to have, when traveling abroad, is a translator. Google Translate is easy to use and extremely accurate. You can even take a picture of a sign or menu, and Google Translate will take care of the rest.

A little planning can be the difference between a stressful trip, and a restful, much needed break from the status quo. It can also save you from the high prices that come with last minute travel. If you need help planning your next vacation, Trending Travel would be happy to assist you. They can provide travel vouchers, discounted travel rates, general travel expertise and more.

You Can Travel To The Rio Olympics On A Budget

Slowly but surely, the summer travel season is nearing. Pretty soon, people from all over the globe will be taking advantage of their time off. But, every four years, there is an extra special event happening during the summer time. The 2016 Summer Olympics will be taking place in Rio, and many people would love to attend. Thanks to a recent article in Today, you have the tips to do so, even if you are on a budget.

  • Stay – Your best bet is to stay outside the city. Of course you’d prefer to be in the middle of the action, but that is a quick way to blow your budget. You can be close, and save a lot of money in the process.
  • Flights – This is the perfect time to take advantage of cheaper flights. This summer is expected to see its cheapest fares in seven years.
  • Accommodations – Nobody says that you have to stay in a hotel. AirBnB is the official “alternative accommodations” sponsor of the event, and TripAdvisor has some rental options to give you a good bang for your buck.

If you have always dreamed of seeing the Olympics, this might be the perfect year. However, even if you’d just like to plan a small trip, there are plenty of options available for you. Trending Travel would enjoy helping to plan out your perfect vacation. They provide travel vouchers, discounted travel rates, general travel expertise and more.
