Tis the Season for Spring Break Travel Deals
26 Feb
Winter is still keeping much of the country in its grip, but even if it doesn’t feel like it, this is the time to plan your spring break trip. In fact, it’s already a little late. The good news for spring break travelers is, lots of credit card issuers are offering great travel deals right now, so folks can take advantage of points and rewards when booking their spring break travel. Here are some of the deals to look for this season.

Double and triple points on car rentals. If you’re planning to rent a car during your vacation, lots of credit card companies are offering deals with car rental partners. Promotions include bonus points for renting for a certain amount of time, double and triple rewards points at eligible locations, and discounts of up to 30%. These are unbeatable deals, especially considering car rentals are quite expensive right now. The good news is, gas prices are down all over the country, so a road trip for spring break might actually be a great choice if you’re looking for an economical vacation.

Signup bonuses abound. If you’re looking for a free flight somewhere, consider applying for a credit card that offers a signup bonus worth a round-trip ticket. This is the time to find these deals; they are common for co-branded airline cards, like Southwest or Frontier, as well as high-end cards like American Express. Credit card companies are always offering great signup bonuses to entice new cardholders, but this season is a particularly good one to find a great promotion.

Hotel apps are competing for customers. There are several new apps for booking hotels, like PointsHound and Rocketmiles, that are offering high-value promotions in an effort to get new customers. If you’re going to stay in a hotel, you can book through one of these apps and earn frequent flyer miles to use on your next trip. Download an app or two and increase your miles balance this season.

Use what you’ve got. Be sure you know what you’ve already got available to you through the credit cards you carry now. If you’ve got a card that offers a percentage off of in-flight purchases, or priority boarding, use it. Access to airport lounges is another great travel credit card perk. The promos this time of year are fantastic, but don’t overlook what’s already in your wallet.
