Travel group discount sites
Savvy travelers can reap group savings
It can be pretty overwhelming to pick among the many travel group discount sites to ensure you're getting the cheapest deal possible. Ways exist to simplify the process at sites like Groupon and Buywithme, according to a story on STLtoday.com.
Part of taking advantage of travel group discount sites is knowing where you're vacationing months ahead of time. Once you book your trip, sign up for deals on activities, tours and restaurants for that city on a group buying site, the article suggests. You'll get daily emails for deals from which you can craft a budget trip for your family. Make sure to check the expiration date on each deal so you know you can use it when you're in town.
One thing the article doesn't mention is planning your itinerary beforehand with your family and the other people with whom you intend to travel. Group buying sites can be dangerous because the compulsive shopper in you will want to scoop up everything. If you're not careful, you can wind up with a long list of cheap activities no one wants to do on your trip.
