If you are a family, then this is the site you need to use when finding flights. They always seem to find the best deals and their calendar view lets you see which days are cheapest to fly. I like them because they search the small booking sites no one else does. Start all your flight searches with them.
This site is great because it lets you find the cheapest destinations from your departure airport. You can see different airlines in one place and find great deals if you are just looking to getting away “somewhere” for the weekend or a week.

Camping / RVing
Campspot let’s you research and instantly book the best campgrounds, RV parks, cabins, and glamping destinations across North America. It’s easy to filter by location, type of getaway, site type, and amenities. I like this for both last minute trips and booking well in advance.
RVshare is the Airbnb of RV rentals. You can find an RV to suit your needs and budget for a road trip. You can also find an RV that can be delivered to your destination for the ultimate glamping experience.

Tour Companies/ Activities
This is where I go to research and book tours and excursions. The site features local tour operators offering everything from local cooking classes to guided kayaking trips.
When visiting popular US cities like Tampa Bay, Orlando, San Diego, and New York, a CityPASS can save you up to 45% off top attractions by bundling tickets together into one pass.
Travel Credit Cards
This is an excellent all-around card for any type of traveler. You earn 3x points on dining, 2x points on travel, and a $50 hotel credit annually with no foreign transaction fees and primary rental car coverage. The Chase travel portal and transfer partners make it very flexible to exchange for travel.
This free service is what I use to manage the ins and outs of travel hacking, maximizing travel incentives with credit card reward programs.
