If you are planning to travel for Memorial Day Weekend (May 28-30) then you might want to check out some travel deals and apps to help you get savings.  Whether you are roadtripping or flying to a vacation destination, there are some travel deals on our radar and apps you should check out. 

  • If you’re looking for hotel deals, have a look at Cheap Tickets.  The travel consolidator is offering discounts at select hotels if you book by May 22, 2016.  Cities with discounts on luxury hotels include Los Angeles, New York City, Orlando, Miami and Las Vegas.  Discounts range from 15% to 33% off your selected hotel stay.  Use code MAYFLOWER when you book a hotel stay to save a guaranteed 17 percent off your hotel stay at checkout when you enter the code.
  • If you’re looking for quality for price, check the hotel reviews on Trip Advisor and then book your Memorial Day hotel getaway.  I really rely on reviews from other travelers when choosing where to stay and Trip Advisor is the perfect marriage of authentic tips and discounts.  Trip Advisor will offer comparative pricing from different travel sites so you can get the best deal.
  • For last minute hotel stays, use the mobile app Hotel Tonight. This app is really useful for finding deals when you are looking to book a hotel room at the last minute or on the go. The app uses GPS to locate the best hotel deals in your area, or you can type in a zip code. Available on Android and iPhone, you just need to book the day of your stay.
  • For deals on car rentals, hotels, flights and even spa treatments, click over to Travelzoo.
