    Summer is a great season to travel, and 2023 is shaping up to be the perfect year to do it.

Now that the worst of the pandemic is well behind us we can travel again and experience new cultures and ways of living.

With so many amazing choices, it can be overwhelming and hard to know where to find the best deals. That's why I've put together a list of the best summer travel tips.

  • Be flexible with your travel dates.  If possible, one of the best ways to save money on travel is to be flexible with your dates and experiment with a wide range of different days and times. If you're not set on a specific month, week, or days of the week, you can often find better deals.
  • Travel during off-peak seasons. If you're willing to travel during the off-season, you can often find better deals than the more popular times of the year. For example, Joshua Tree has its peak season during the winter and cooler months so you can often find great deals during the summer when it can get extremely hot.
  • Find package deals. Package deals can be a good way to save on traveling expenses but there may be some tradeoffs in terms of flexibility. Package deals can include airfare, hotel, and car rental, and they can save you a lot of money compared to booking everything separately. Differing companies often enter into partnerships and the resulting promotional package can be cheaper (and simpler) than booking everything separately.
  • Use credit card points. If you have a travel rewards credit card, then you can use your points to book your flights and hotel. This is a great and simple way to save money on travel expenses.
  • Research before you travel. Before you book your trip, make sure to do your research, clearly define your travel goals, and compare prices. Shopping around with different companies and travel web sites is a great way to find the best deals.
