In the past couple of years, my hubby has been travelling on business trips to the States as well as to India. In the process of doing so, he has accumulated a fair amount of frequent flyer miles. In fact, some of his frequent flyer miles have also previously expired without us knowing so until it was too late (no, we were not informed beforehand that the miles were gonna expire). So this time round, we are planning to redeem these miles and go on a family vacation 🙂
It has been some time since we went on a trip, and now with Ethan around, we can’t wait to take him places! Since Ethan is less than a year old, I think we need not buy a ticket for him, or if we do, the ticket will be at a huge discount (just 10% of the full fare or something like that).
We have tentatively decided to go to Singapore, so we’re checking out hotel rates and packages now. In doing so, I found this awesome site where you can get great bargains on hotel rates anywhere in the world. Hotel Reservations guarantees the lowest price on the internet as well as cash rebates for reservations made for 3 nights or more! A quick search on hotels in the Orchard Road vicinity in Singapore produced excellent results. I found out that I could book a 4-star hotel for less than $100 per night, and on top of that there were further discounts too; for instance, if we booked for 3 nights we could get 15% off from the price we pay! In addition, these hotels are all within close range of the sites we planned on visiting, like the Singapore Zoological Gardens and the Underwaterworld.
In fact, the name of this site is quite misleading because apart from offering hotel reservations, one can also book flights, rent cars, vacation rentals or even book a whole vacation package here. A truly one-stop site for the avid vacationeer.
