Travel Cheaper Travel With Vouchers

By: Kamyar Shah

If you love a travel bargain, you should try using free travel vouchers. Here is how they work. A travel consolidator works out an agreement with hotels, airlines, condo rental management companies and vacation rental locations to sell off their unfilled space. Every property has times when they are not at 100% occupancy. The travel consolidators charge very minimal fees to pass on free certificates to you. The certificates are usually available for the most popular vacation destinations. You do typically pay a small booking fee to make the reservations. So you might be able to get a three night stay for $30.00. That is pretty good, don't you think? Now granted you won't be staying at a five star place, but you'll be staying at mid range places that might cost you easily $100 or $150 a day.

The vouchers are especially good for getting more vacation time than you might normally get. The average American hardly ever gets a real vacation. Who can afford to travel somewhere nice and stay a whole week? With the costs of gasoline, housing and health care climbing far faster than average wages, most people are lucky to get a vacation every two or three years. Most people squeeze in a weekend get-away or a long weekend trip a few times a year and are happy they were able to afford that. Using travel vouchers allows you to dramatically reduce the costs of you trips, which would allow you to stay longer or go more often. Those sound like pretty good options, don't they?

Even if you can afford to pay out of pocket for your vacations, why would you do that, when you can get some seriously discounted travel? If you have a little bit of disposable income, why would you dispose of it paying for travel, when you could save it or invest it and let it grow for the future? Using travel vouchers could allow you to put several thousand dollars a year into savings or investments. If you are the least bit aware of the power of time when investing, you know that any nickels and dimes you can put away or invest today will mean substantially more to you than if you wait a few years to put that money to work.

Many times, there are local get-aways available and there are always get-aways available for the most popular destinations. So whether you are hoping to get to Orlando, Myrtle Beach, Atlantic City, Nashville, Chicago, Branson, California, Hawaii, The south Texas coast, Las Vegas or any destination of your choice, the chances are you can get travel vouchers for those locations.

You do need to plan in advance to schedule your deeply discounted travel . Typically you need to buy the certificates early and then reserve your space 60 days in advance. But if you like planning and dreaming of all the fun things you can do on a trip, then you might as well get planning early, so you can save money and be prepared.

Many people find the pleasure of looking forward to a vacation can give them the perspective to get through the day to day grind without the stress that normally goes with it. Having a trip planned in the next two to four months can really help you get through your normal work week, without the hassles and stresses getting you down.

Travel vouchers have also become popular incentives for businesses to give to their new and old customers to show some appreciation. They are also a good sales incentives to help bring in those new customers. It is great to get a discount when doing business with a new vendor, but getting a deeply discounted trip as a premium for signing up for a service or buying a product is a pretty fun idea, don't you think?

So how do you get your travel vouchers? If you are looking for a self storage unit to store your belongings or your seasonal items, there are several self storage operators who are offering travel vouchers to people who visit their websites. Most self storage operators assume that if you view their web site and find that their locations are conveniently located to you and the self storage facilities look good on-line, the chances are very good you will go and rent with them. So it makes perfect sense for them to try and generate more traffic to their sites by offering the travel vouchers to people who visit their sites, make reservations or submit an email for more information.

One self storage locator service that does offer the travel vouchers is the Storage Concierge. This self storage finder service offers personal assistance in finding a local self storage unit provider to web visitors and those who place a toll free call to the Storage Concierge call center .

So if self storage is something you have been thinking of looking into, you could be one of the many people who use travel vouchers to get more vacation time every year, extend their pleasure trips or better management their incomes to be able to invest and travel at the same time.

Don't be shy about using your travel vouchers. There is no need to pay full retail for your travels and your vacations. Get a hold of some deeply discounted travel vouchers for yourself and enjoy life a little. I am sure you deserve it.
