Need travel advice.

Now that we're retired we're looking forward to taking advantage of travel deals. We don't have scheduling restrictions. I thought I could just look for deals to a particular spot (right now it's Hawaii) without specifying dates. But I can't find a way to do it. Actually, I was at Expedia.com and DID see a list of flight deals without having put in dates, but I can't reproduce that for the life of me.

Ideal would be to get e-mails when good deals crop up.

Can any of you help?

1. Are you a Costco member?

Costco travel has very good prices. It is worth upgrading your membership before you book. Customer service helps book everything. We went to Hawaii a couple of years ago. You can book a trip with multiple islands. It was great.

It is worth looking into and see if you see anything that appeals to you.

3. Great! I hadn't thought of that. I was super happy with the deal...

... I got for a lot of cut-to-size window shades. And they can be counted on to pick the best of any kind of food. Will check it out next time we go.

What do you mean by "upgrade?" Our membership is the one that gives you rebates on everything you buy. The membership fee is a little bit higher, but the rebate is always greater. Is that the membership you mean?

4. The Executive membership

It gives you better deals on travel plans.

Go to https://www.costcotravel.com/

You can check things out. The customer service number gets you to a real person who can work with you to plan a trip.

6. Use Airbnb for Lodging

For Domestic and Overseas travel. You save TONS over hotels. We did that in 2015 when we went to the UK and 2018 when we went to Australia.
