Here at Justifi, we travel a LOT. From Thailand to Nicaragua, Peru to South Africa, we're booking dozens of international trips per year. And, as a small not-for-profit organization, we do everything we can to book them on the cheap.
Beyond the need to travel for work, it's a personal hobby of mine to find incredible deals on travel for myself and others. I've spent many dozens of hours reading travel forums, blogs, talking to experts, and pouring over award travel charts to find the sweet spots. And the results are fun. In the last few years the tricks below have helped me book <$400 round trip tickets to Israel from New York, a $330 ticket for my father to Bangkok with a 2 week stint in Europe between Venice and Prague, gleen more than $3,500 in flight credits, and earn enough frequent flier points to circle the world at least 3 times. (It's a fun hobby).
Because one of the biggest concerns potential participants have when considering a Justifi trip is the cost of airfare, I wanted to share some of the top tips and tricks that past participants have used to save hundreds of dollars on their tickets and joined our programs for a lot less.
