Frequently Asked Questions
COVID-19: Are these deals for destinations that have open borders for travel?
We know that some borders are closed right now. This is why we send deals that are at least several months in the future. We expect by that time many of the current travel restrictions in place should be lessened or lifted. We’re also recommending these flights through airlines that offer easy cancellations and re-booking options for your convenience!
Are all deals international?
Most of our deals are focused on international destinations, but we do offer popular domestic destinations like Hawaii for the US. We take seasonality into account for domestic deals. For example during ski season we will look for deals to the mountains in the Northeast US.
Is it a monthly or annual fee?
It’s an annual fee.
If I get a deal, can I bring different people with me?
Yes, you are not restricted by how many people fly with you on our deals. Since you are booking directly with the airline, book for as many people as you’d like!
I selected (specific state / city) as my home city. Will I receive only deals for flights from one city, or will I also receive deals from nearby cities / airports?
You will get flight deals out of your home airport and all airports within a 3 hour drive of your “home airport”. Upon request, we can add airports that are further away if you are willing to drive or fly to them.
Do you send business class deals?
Most deals we send are economy, but we also share great business class deals that we find.
How does this booking process work if I find an interesting deal from you?
We send you a deal that we find with some example dates where we found validity/availability and you book it directly with the airline if it works for you. We provide detailed instructions in our deal emails.
Do you send deals only for low cost airlines?
Most deals use major airlines that offer one free checked bag. Low cost airlines charge for a checked bag so we take extra fees into account before deciding whether a deal is good or not.
Since every deal is hand verified, we do not send deals on airlines or via connections that we personally would not fly on/connect through. For example, we closely monitored the 2017 Qatar airspace blockade and did not send deals through Qatar because we believed there was a chance that you could get stranded there due to that event.
How can I trust that the deals you send are legitimate?
You book directly with the airline. We are not part of the ticketing process at all. Since we are member supported, we make no commission on deals or flights you take. We hope you travel more through our deals but we make no commission or receive any incentives from the airlines if you do book a flight.
This allows us to be completely honest about what we think are great deals and not try to push you into a flight so that we can make a few extra bucks. Trust is very important to us. That’s why every email we send you will be a legitimately awesome deal that gives you flexibility to book.
Can I search your site for cheap flight deals?
We actually don’t have anywhere to search our site for deals as our hunters do all the searching for you and then send the cheap flight deals directly to your inbox so you don’t miss any chances to fly out!
Will I be charged right away for the flight alerts?
Nope! We require a card on file to sign up, but your card won’t be charged until the end of your 30-day free trial.
Do you send deals on flights with a lot of layovers?
Most of our airfare deals are non-stop or 1-stop. If a layover is required, we look for short layovers and only in hub airports in good locations.
COVID-19: What if my destination is still not accepting tourists at the time of departure?
We are only recommending deals through airlines with flexible change policies. In the event that travel is not permitted, you can cancel your trip or adjust your travel to dates further out. Please make sure to check the airline’s policy to stay up to date on the change/cancellation process.
Do you take any commission from the airline or booking company for sending these deals?
No. Because we are member supported, we make no commission on deals or flights you take. This removes any bias we have as well about deals.
Do you send last minute deals?
Most people need to coordinate their vacation with their boss and travel buddy. That’s why we don’t send last minute deals. We usually send deals that 1-6 months out.
Can I change my airport?
Yes, you can change your home airport as well as adjust your surrounding airports settings via your member portal, or you can reach out to us and we’d be happy to do it for you.
How frequently will I get the deals in my inbox?
You will likely get deals from us 2-3 times a week, for trips you can plan to take in about a month from now or further out.
Again, it’s really important to understand that we will be sending you deals only to really interesting places and only when we think the deal makes sense.
When I book my flight, can I pay with miles/points/redeem travel credit?
Yes, you book directly with the airline. That means if you have any airline’s points, miles, certificates, or other credits you can use them with that airline.
Will I earn miles/points for rewards & airline status?
Yes, since these are paid fares, you should earn miles/points for future free travel or airline loyalty status. However if you pay for your ticket using points or miles, rewards/loyalty earnings may be affected. You’ll also earn points or miles when you use a travel rewards credit card to purchase your tickets.
How do I manage my account?
You can make changes to your Next Vacay preferences by using the Log In link in the footer below. If you need to make additional changes not shown in your member account, reach out to email@example.com and our Customer Service team will be happy to help you out!
Do you send cruise deals, hotel deals, or all-inclusive deals?
No. For most people the challenge with travel is getting an affordable flight.
If a flight to Paris is normally $1500 per person and if we can get you there for $400 per person, you have a lot more cash available to use for your hotel and meals. That’s why we focus just on flights.
Can I pick a specific destination and date to travel?
We’re not taking requests for specific dates or destinations at the moment. Right now, our service works best for those who are flexible on where and when they travel, as we can’t guarantee deals for pre-made plans, but we’ll keep you updated and send you a flight deal alert on all the best deals we find available from your airports!
Is this a subscription? Does it renew?
Your subscription is set to auto-renew every year but you can turn this off by logging into your member portal or by reaching out to us.
I’ve misplaced my booking info, can you send that for me?
No. As you book our flight deals directly through the airlines we have no way of locating your booking info on our end. We’d recommend contacting the airline you booked the deal through directly or searching through your email to locate that info.
