Wednesday Travel Deal Round Up!

30 Mar

You’re trying to find a great hotel or vacation package deal but by the time you actually find a perfect fit, time has run out and rates are sky high again. Sound familiar? Or maybe you’ve spotted a great deal for a cool place but don’t know a thing about that destination. By the time you read up and find a travel buddy, the deal is gone! To prevent this from happening again, Eager For Travel has pulled together a one-stop-shop to help travel planners, like yourself, keep track of the latest flash sale deals, and make informed decisions about whether or not to book.

Every Saturday we will pull together the latest flash sale calendars and on Wednesdays, we will provide travel deal roundups! Be sure to return, as we will provide information for each of the destinations featured, helping you make the decision about whether or not to buy! Since it’s Wednesday, let’s get on with our Wednesday Travel Deal Round Up!

There are some AMAZING deals out there this week. We are itching to book a bunch of them but many coincide with our big spring trip to Thailand. If we could book any, we would definitely go with the Ireland, Australia, transatlantic cruise, or Hawaii. Oh, and the Italy deal—would love to go back to visit my favorite restaurant in Florence! Must… resist… urge… to… purchase!
