As I seem to have become the family expert on award travel as well as finding the best deals and discounts on flights and hotels I am usually the one in charge of planning as well as booking all the travel arrangements. This can be both good and bad as I've pointed out in a previous post. However, I have learned quite a few lessons along the way but usually as a result of the many mistakes I've made.
Step 1 - Figure out a destination and general time frame
Step 2 - Search Google Flights
Step 3 - Decide whether you are paying with cash or miles
Step 4 - Decide which portal you are going to use to purchase your tickets
