We all follow those people on Instagram who are somehow always on vacation. We don't know their life story, but we'd be willing to bet they didn't pay full price for that excursion — they just planned strategically. We're keeping track of the best flight, train, luggage, and hotel deals below to help you do the same. Now get outta here.


Why we like it

The warm weather version of Frontier's already-existing annual pass unlocks unlimited flights to both domestic and international Frontier destinations between May 2 and September 30 for a one-time fee of $499. Frontier serves more than 100 airports across the U.S., Mexico, the Caribbean, and Latin America, with new locations frequently being added to the lineup. (It's not the $399 that it debuted at in February, but it is $200 cheaper than the $699 price point we've seen in recent weeks.)

Frontier also dropped a fall and winter version(opens in a new tab) of the GoWild! pass at the end of May, which covers all flights between Sept. 2 and Feb. 29, 2024 for $299. Be sure to read the fine print before snagging the ticket for either season.

Trains, cruises, and rental cars

Why we like it

You and a guest can finally book that open sea excursion you've been daydreaming about by taking advantage of Norwegian Cruise Line's 70% discount on a second fare. The Greek Islands, the Mediterranean, the Caribbean, the South Pacific, Greenland and Iceland, and Northern Europe are all options available between seven and 10 days, plus trips to Alaska and Hawaii. You'll also save with an unlimited open bar, plus discounted meals and WiFi. If you want to bring a friend, they'll receive free airfare.

(opens in a new tab)

Why we like it

Vacation doesn't feel like vacation when you're trying to cram a theme park's full glory into a few short days. You can add three full days at Universal to your trip for free when you purchase tickets for two days (as long as they're all consecutive). That's five days for the price of two, so you can really take your time between Universal and Islands of Adventure — or even devote a whole day to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter.

Regulars (or future regulars) at Universal Orlando can also get three months for free(opens in a new tab) with the purchase or renewal of any annual pass.

More experience deals


Why we like it

Joining Red Roof's free RediRewards program can make your lodging arrangements for any summer trip a whole lot cheaper. Members save an extra 15% on their stay when booked before Sept. 22, and can earn a free night's worth of points just for completing two separate stays. Pets also stay for free at all Red Roof locations.

More hotel deals


Why we like it

Still putting up with your suitcase's busted wheel? Longstanding luggage icon American Tourister's current sitewide sale is your excuse to finally replace it. Save 30% on hardside and softside spinners, carry-ons, luggage tags, and more, including Star Wars and Disney kids' options that you'll want to buy for yourself.
