Must. Stop. Now.

I haven’t been very productive during my non-working hours for the past week or so. All of my free time is spent scouring the interwebs here: funjet.com, kayak.com, expedia.com, orbitz.com and many others I ultimately get sucked into.

What am I looking for? Pristine beaches, clear waters, rum cocktails…

Obviously, I am searching for an affordable vacation for the BF and I. We have a mini ‘vacation fund’ that we’re hoping to get the most out of when were buried in snow in this winter. The problem is, I can’t find anything that is less than $1000 per person (we want all inclusive).

This is where I want to be in February:

Feb. 14, 2010 in Cleveland.

Is it better to shop online or go to a travel agent?

Anyone have any secret sites or deals they want to share?! Pleeeeease?

  1. There’s nothing like a beach vacation while it’s snowing here in the CLE. This makes me want to start searching myself!

    You’ve already got all the good ones, but tripadvisor.com is good for user reviews. If you are flexible on dates, applevacations.com can be decent for deals.

  2. Good luck with your search! I always leave the planning up to Jay – I can’t handle it. I found our honeymoon place, but made him make all the arrangements! Ha!

  3. Try Apple vacations, if you haven’t already. My wife and I used them a couple of years ago to visit the Dominican Republic for about the price you’re looking for.

  4. I’ve actually been caught up doing the same thing. We’re looking for an all-inclusive for March and will most likely end up in Cancun again since it seems to be the least expensive. A friend referred me to resortcompete.com where travel agents compete to get your business. They’ve used the sister site, cruisecompete.com, and successfully booked great deals on cruises. It’s worth a try.

  5. Have you checked out travelzoo.com? I love the website to book hotels/vacations/cars. Also, are you a member of jetsetter.com, which is part of gilt.com? If not, email me and I’ll invite you!
