The older I get, the more I want to travel. Unfortunately, the older I get, the less money I want to spend on that stuff and the less time I have to plan ahead. Lucky for me, I found this site called Shermans Travel Deals that caters to my wanderlust, my need to save money, and my intrinsic disorganized laziness.
vacation packages run as low as half of what it would cost me to book it myself
Go Anywhere, Go Everywhere
Shermans pokes around the travel industry looking for deals like a dog pokes around the park looking for interesting-smelling bushes. By coordinating with air and sea carriers, car rental companies, and both the big hotel chains and tiny bed-and-breakfast places around the world, they’re able to put together discounts and special offers that have shaved thousands of dollars off of vacation travel.
The site does a very canny thing by offering both fully planned package travel deals and several options for à la carte bookings on all of the listed services. That way, if I’m thinking about visiting the beautiful Bahamas or Hawaii (or wherever), but I don’t feel like doing a freelance research project on all the local attractions, I can browse through package deals somebody else has thoughtfully put together for me. If on the other hand, I want to squeeze in an unlisted attraction or toss in an extra day to look for a lost city in the jungle, I can assemble my own discount package and still save a fortune.
I’ve Got Other Stuff to Pay For
Speaking of which, Shermans really means it when it goes looking for discounts. Some vacation packages run as low as half of what it would cost me to book it myself, even if I made use of those so-called “discount” travel sites. My Alaska cruise, for example, featured free everything, with unlimited shore excursions, for up to $3,000 less per cabin than the people next to my suite were paying for the same trip.
Didn’t Plan Ahead? No Problem
I take vacations to relax, and I don’t get relaxed by sweating over details or planning months ahead for a simple road trip to the Grand Canyon. I also never have any idea what I’ll be doing a month from now, so the thought of scheduling (and paying for!) a trip package several months or even a year in advance gives me chills. The good news is that, by booking my flight, hotel, rental car, food, drinks, theater tickets and miscellaneous other stuff through Dunhill, I barely have to be conscious to plan a fantastic trip. Every time I click over to their homepage, the screen floods with last-minute travel deals and offers to the places I want to go.

I’ve actually made a game out of waiting for the last minute to book my vacation. Simply pile up that paid time off at work, wait until the weekend before my vacation begins, hit Shermans Travel Deals and see where I’m going this year.
