When we started The Flight Deal, we wanted to not only share the best airfare deals, but also provide practical travel advice to destinations. Over the past four years, we’ve done a pretty good job with posting daily flight deals, but we have a ways to go in providing practical travel advice.
At our annual meeting this year in Italy, we brainstormed about how to better serve our readers with the most practical information. There are plenty of sites that highlight attractions and activities and the like, but just as important are the how-tos and what-ifs in navigating a foreign country. What credit cards are accepted? Will I be subject to a dynamic currency conversion when I use my Visa or Mastercard? Should I take public transportation or cab it? Who better to answer these types of questions than our most valuable resource—you, our readers.
If you have traveled to a destination recently, we would love to hear all about it, especially things that made the trip seamless and free of snags. We invite you to write about your experience so we can share your pearls of travel wisdom with our community. What’s in it for you? We have more than 118,0000 Facebook fans and over 132,000 Twitter followers, so your contribution to The Flight Deal would give you a sizable audience. Each contributor would also get more than just a byline—you’ll be properly credited with links to your work, blog, and social media page.
Here are some examples of what we are looking for:
