How Thrifty Traveler Premium Works
At Thrifty Traveler, we strive to help others spend less and travel more. One of the ways we do this is by finding you cheap flight deals. If you’ve been following Thrifty Traveler for a while now, you may have heard of our Premium offering and may be curious about how Thrifty Traveler Premium works. In this post, we will answer those questions and show you just how simple it is to save money on international flight deals.
What is Thrifty Traveler Premium?
Thrifty Traveler Premium is our subscription-based email service that delivers 1-3 international flight deals each day directly to your email inbox. These deals depart from over 75 US departure cities and you currently have the ability to set a region filter to tailor the deals you want to see. In the very near future, we will be rolling out airport specific filtering that will allow you to only get emails for deals that depart from the airports you select.
Thrifty Tip: In addition to the 40+ flight deals you will receive each month, you can also take advantage of our free credit card consulting service.
Step 1: Sign Up for Thrifty Traveler Premium
It’s only $40 per year and you can expect 40+ notifications to your email box each month for flight deals near you. Our sign-up process is simple and only takes a few minutes. Better yet? Once you are locked in at a price, it will never change. You can become a premium member here.
Step 2: Get Ready for the Deals to Fly into Your Mailbox
Once you sign up, we send you an email right away with the scoop on Thrifty Traveler Premium. Within a few days, you’ll start seeing “Thrifty Traveler Premium” notifications hit your inbox. Here is a preview of what those will look like.
If you use Gmail, please make sure to check your Promotions, Social, Updates or Spam tabs as it may have accidentally ended up there. Simply drag any Thrifty Traveler Premium email into your “Inbox” tab to help to prevent this from happening in the future.
Step 3: Find a Deal You’re Ready to Snatch Up
Once you spot a deal you’re ready to take advantage of, use the details provided in the Thrifty Traveler Premium email to find your flight options. We provide you with the departure locations, destinations, available dates, airlines and ways to book.
Step 4: Search for Flights
Use our favorite tool, Google Flights, to find the flights that work for you.
Step 5: Book Your Flights
Once you find the itinerary that you want, you can book them right with the airline. There may even be a chance to book the deal with the online travel agency (OTA), Momondo, to save even more money. If that is the case, the information will be provided in the email notification.
Thrifty Tip #3: Don’t wait to book the deals as they don’t last long! Remember, if you book a flight, there is a free 24-hour cancellation policy on US flights*.
Our Premium deals save our subscribers an average of $250 or more off of regular priced fares. Even if you only book one flight a year, that’s enough savings to pay for 10 years of Thrifty Traveler Premium. You get all of this for the equivalent cost of one cup of coffee a month. So what are you waiting for? Sign up for Thrifty Traveler Premium and don’t miss out on a flight deal again.
