2015 Travel - Italy, Canyon Lake, Dallas, Galveston

May 21st, 2015 at 08:39 am

I've mentioned before that when booking travel at work I go through Ebates and use Hotels.com. When you book 10 rooms using Hotels.com you earn a free night that is worth the average of those 10 night stays. This year I have earned 3 nights and I'm close to earning a fourth!

I used one of those nights for a solo trip to Dallas for a Dave Ramsey event on retirement. Nothing exciting but having time to myself was nice.

Another night I used for a nights stay in Galveston, TX. It's an island here close by. We stayed the Saturday night before Easter. Upon arrival DD2 was given a small Easter basket. The hotel had face painting, balloon animals, indoor and outdoor petting zoo, Easter egg hunt, scavenger hunt, moon walk, sack hop racing, hula hoops, smores by the fire pit outside by the pool and much more. I paid $23 out of pocket because the average amount I had wasn't enough but it was SO WORTH IT! We had such a wonderful time and will be back.

I booked a buy one night get one night free for a place at Canyon Lake, TX. I had been before with my parents had such a great time so this time I wanted to invite them to come along with us. We went on walks, fishing and sat outside on the porch and hand fed deer.

The Italy trip was our big trip for the year! We were in the Tuscany region. Cooking class, tour and wine tasting at a castle. Horseback riding tour. Visiting an organic farm, dinners, etc. It was just amazing!

Over the summer my mom wants to go to Fredericksburg, TX with my sister and I along with our kiddos. Right now, I don't want to go anywhere!

    This can be a great add to the multiple tips for travelers you can use to save money while exploring other counties or regions. Apart from using reward credit cards (which appear very useful and even beneficial if you manage to find the right plan corresponding to your requirements), bonuses from coupons and special offers from booking websites and independent companies, you can actually use the benefits, which your job offers. Even if you donít have it in your contract, you should learn how to use social connections and make the best of your experience in many different ways. As for free hotel staying, not only booking websites leave this option open for regular visitors and clients, but also some hotels offer special plans for the users of some services. For example, according to some credit card plans you can actually earn a free hotel staying in Hilton. Of course, thereíre some conditions which you will have to follow (like spending a set amount of money within a certain term). Still, if you are going abroad you will spend anyway, so why not making it effectively.
