The Traveling Fool - Issue #25
By Bob Bales • Issue #25 • View online
When getting ready to make travel plans, most people turn to the web and start searching airfares or hotels. Most have their favorite go to  website but often forget about discounts they may already have coming to them.
Here are a couple of reminders and things to do next time you get ready to search for that travel deal.
 First 
If you are going to do a search for airfares on any booking site do so from an “incognito” window. In Chrome click on the 3 little dots in the top right hand corner, select “New incognito window” and do a search from there. Other browsers also allow this. You can also go to the website duckduckgo.com where you can search incognito. By doing this the booking sites won’t retain your IP address and hike the airfares each time you search. 
Although industry execs say that searching incognito doesn’t help, it also doesn’t hurt and might save you some money.
 Second
 Remember those clubs, groups and associations you belong to? Most likely they offer travel discounts. Unfortunately a lot of people forget about that until after they booked the trip and then remember they should have at least checked. Places like:
Industry organizations, senior discounts, student discounts, alumni organizations and even Groupon.com
Check them out and see what kind of deals are being offered. 
Also check out sites like Scott’s Cheap Flights and Secretflying.com both have email newsletters you can subscribe to that will send you some great deals. Scott’s Flights is currently giving away a trip to Prague! Check it out.
Who knows, you might get lucky and find one of those coveted error fares like Business Class from New York to South America from only $591 

With cooler weather coming it’s time to check out the jackets these guys offer. I love them that’s why I am an affiliate with them.
