what does this mean? If you plan multiple trips throughout the year, you’ll always have something to look forward to. And to make planning your trip easier, remember these tips.
Buy alltrips annual travel insurance if you have three or more trips planned this year.
We did the numbers for a hypothetical 40-year-old traveler from Virginia who is planning three trips this year: one for pleasure (business and pleasure) and two for pleasure. His rides cost $500, $4,000 and $5,000, for a combined cost of $9,500. buying onetrip prime for these three separate trips would cost you $449 in total. adding rental car insurance for any of those trips would cost an additional $9 per day.
or, our traveler could buy alltrips prime for $249. that plan covers not only the three planned trips, but also any additional trips you take within a 12-month period. In most states, our alltrips plans also include a collision/loss damage waiver for rental cars at no additional cost.
onetrip prime and alltrips prime differ in their coverage levels. emergency medical benefits are $20,000 with alltrips prime and $50,000 with onetrip prime, for example. both offer $1,000 for lost/damaged luggage, but alltrips prime caps trip cancellation costs at $2,000.
To summarize, multi-trip travel insurance is often the best option for people who visit multiple destinations in a year. however, each traveler should compare quotes for their specific travel plans and read the plan documents carefully before purchasing a plan.
Please use the Kayak Price Trends feature before you book.
You already know you want to visit your sister in Stockholm this summer, but should you go in June or August? a quick search shows roundtrip fares around $758 in June and $618 in August. perfect. You will go in August. but should you buy now or wait a few weeks to see if the price drops?
The Kayak Price Trend Forecast (which you’ll see when comparing airfare prices) can give you some pointers, based on its analysis of current and past prices. you can say “buy now; prices are unlikely to drop within 7 days”, or you can recommend that you wait. kayaking might even make you shrug: “_(ツ)_/¯ we’re still collecting data for this route.”
Ask a travel agent for help planning your trip.
if you’re planning a complicated vacation, e.g. a multi-stop international trip that isn’t a pre-planned tour or package – research can be downright exhausting. You go to one site to compare flights, another to read hotel reviews, a third to guide your sightseeing, and a fourth to book your transportation between cities. here’s a better idea: call a trusted travel agent.
why use a travel agency for international travel? One, they likely have first-hand knowledge of your destination, so they can give you honest, personalized advice on what to do and when to go. Two, they might be able to get special perks like room upgrades or tickets to a sold-out show. and three, they can speed up your trip by booking the most economical direct transportation.
apply for a travel credit card with a great sign-up bonus.

The practice of travel hacking (signing up for dozens of frequent flyer and travel rewards programs to get free gifts) is not easy. successful travel hackers are supremely organized and financially disciplined. But if you’re anticipating a big year of travel, it may be worth applying for a credit card or two that will give you a substantial sign-up bonus.
Many travel rewards cards give you 50,000 or more bonus points if you meet a minimum spending requirement (usually $3,000-4,000) in the first few months.2 If you charge all of your travel expenses, you shouldn’t have a problem to meet the minimum, and then you can use the points for a free flight or hotel stay.
Only do this if you have good credit (700+) and know you’ll be able to pay off your cards every month, Brad Barrett, founder of RichmondSavers.com, tells Allianz Global Support. And don’t forget to check a card’s annual fee before signing up. (read more about how to earn travel rewards).
