Are you trying to plan a summer vacation on a budget? If so, you are on the lookout for good deals and discounts. There are many ways to find these online, including the popular classified website Craigslist.org. How can you ensure you get the best deal?
Watch out for scams. Scams are all over the internet and many target cheap vacation seekers. You are likely to find some scams right on Craigslist. Although they vary, you may find a seller who claims to have Disney tickets, but they really don’t. You send them the money and they up and run. Or, you may have a fraud who takes pictures from the internet claiming they own a vacation rental. You pay, but once you arrive at the destination and see another building in its place, you are heartbroken. Not only that, but you are also out your money and don’t have a place to stay!
Read all Craigslist listings carefully. Both Disneyland and Disney World are classified as resorts. You might assume that resort tickets include a stay at an onsite hotel, but they usually don’t. Most times, you are just buying admission tickets. When looking for cheap vacation deals on Craigslist.org, never assume. Always read postings carefully and ask lots of questions. This is another good way to avoid a fraud too.
Know what you are looking for. While knowing what you want to do or where you want to go for your summer vacation is not required, it can save you time. There are usually hundreds of vacation deals and other related services offered just on your local Craigslist page. It can take you hours to get through them all. Eliminate this by using good search phrases. For example, search for Six Flags if you want to travel to Six Flags, Disneyland or Disney World for a Disney Resort, charter for a private sailboat charter, and so forth.
Finally, search more than just your local pages. What if you live in Orlando and want cheap Disney tickets, but a seller who lives in Daytona Beach is selling them? You miss out. Craigslist does not allow multi-city searches, but you can use a Craigslist search tool instead. Search all of Craigslist, entire states, or multiple cities at once to find the best cheap vacation deals today.
