Admins’ secrets to finding travel deals

Admins shared these great ideas recently on the Admin Pro Forum (www.prapforum.typepad.com/):

“I recommend www.kayak.com, because you can change your search parameters and search other nearby airports [for good fares],” writes Beth. “Once you choose a rate (car, air, hotel), you are taken to that company’s Web site.

“For example, if you like an AirTran flight, you would be taken directly to the AirTran site.

“Also, for some travel arrangements, Kayak offers a ‘past 90 days in review’ feature to give you an idea of how today’s prices compare to the past few months.”

“If you ever need to book international travel for an executive who prefers to fly First or Business class,” writes Karen Kosmoski, “try 1st Air (www.1st-air.net/). They give great deals.”

“We usually use Orbitz.com or Travelocity.com to start looking for flights,” writes Annie, “then purchase the lowest ticket matching our specifications from the airline’s Web site. That way, there is no service charge.”

“Find out if your boss is willing to take a one-stop flight versus a nonstop,” writes Cindy. “I fly regularly from Atlanta to Los Angeles, and I can save $100-plus on each flight just by selecting to make one stop at a midpoint.”
