151. How Cheap Flight Alerts Work (and Why Your Next Adventure Might Depend On It)

The Thought Card: Travel Tips, Travel Hacking, and Personal Finance For Financially Savvy Travelers

Nov 30 2023 • 24 mins

Cheap flight alerts have helped me save between 40-90% on airfare, and it was often the inspiration I needed to keep my finances organized to seize time-sensitive travel opportunities.

Flight deal subscriptions might be the game-changer you've been missing, but I get it—you might be (a little) skeptical, so in this episode, I’m partnering with Thrifty Traveler to share how flight deal subscriptions work, how they can benefit you, and why they are the golden ticket to travel experiences you’ve been overlooking.
