I wish I could travel more...
If you find yourself saying this statement, then you're not alone. Many people want to be able to travel more but may not have the funds to do so.
If you're single and you're only on one full-time income, it can seem challenging to find the money necessary to travel more than that one time a year. Especially if you find yourself in the 25-35-year-old range living in the U.S. with student loans, rent/mortgage, and other bills.
Well, the good news is... I'm in the same boat as you, but I've learned how to travel more than once a year even with my student loans in the 6 figure range between undergraduate and graduate school. I'm here to help you overcome this.

The first and biggest mistake...
Too many people either wait too long to buy their plane tickets or buy them at the last minute. Going down both these paths is going to give you headaches especially when you see those astronomical prices.
To avoid this headache, you need to plan ahead in advance by knowing the flight price trends and how they're fluctuating. This needs to be done over a sample period of time to make sure you're getting the best deal for yourself.
By having a visual outline of what the trending prices are you'll get a firm grasp on what the airlines are going to charge.
However, predicting airline prices and what they're going to fluctuate to is impossible. It's a big secret club that none of us on the outside are in and there many factors that cause the airlines to adjust prices.
All we can do is put ourselves in the best position to get the best deal and not book too early or too late.
This brings me to my next point...
The best price is relative.
It all depends on where you want to go. First off, we're not considering international travel. That's going to run you a lot of money right off the bat. Our goal here is going to be to get you to travel more than you currently are.
To do that, we're sticking to the United States - hence the name of the site 😉
Essentially the further you travel from your home base (like traveling cross-country), the higher the price is going to be.
What you want to do to is choose a closer destination to where you are and monitor those prices.
You need a full-fledged plan to make this all happen...
- Three months prior to your travel, you need to begin tracking prices
- You need to choose a destination close to where you live (think 2-3 hours away)
- You need to make sure you have enough money to afford this trip
You need a budget travel planner...
