The My Itchy Travel Feet office is closed for the holiday. But I couldn’t let the year end without wishing you a festive one. Whether you’re sitting in the quiet of your living room or partying it up with friends, Alan and I hope 2020 holds many fun travel adventures for you.
Speaking of 2020, I’m excited about the continued evolution of My Itchy Travel Feet. Is there a particular type of travel or a destination that you would like for us to cover. Ask away. And stay tuned for the reveal of our newly designed website, which should go live sometime in January. I can’t wait!

Travel Deals for Boomers
Since we’re on vacation this week, I’m not around to check for travel deals. So I’m sharing the websites that Alan and I use to plan our trips. Instead of shopping the after Christmas sales, plan a trip instead. It’s more fun!
- When comparing flights, especially domestic ones, Kayak is our first stop on the internet.
- Skyscanner is especially helpful for researching international flights.
- We start our search for hotels at HotelsCombined. But we also check the reviews at TripAdvisor before booking.
- When it comes to vacation rentals, we’ve booked at Vrbo for years.
- Booking experiences ahead saves us time and money. Viator and GetYourGuide offer excellent choices and money-back cancellation policies.
- Keeping a medical evacuation membership in force saved us thousands of dollars. Sign up here or read my story, first.
- Breaking down on the road is no fun. We had a tire blowout one time that truly scared us. Our AAA membership came in handy. A tow truck arrived promptly, changed the tire and offered advice on where we could go to buy a new tire.
