9 Mistakes That Could Ruin Your Romantic Couples’ Trip. – If you’re planning a special trip with your sweetheart for Valentine’s Day, watch out for these mistakes. Nothing can ruin a vacation (or a relationship) like making a massive mistake that upsets your partner.

How to Find Cheaper Car Rentals. – We’re looking to go snowboarding in Utah next month for spring break and, wow, rental cars are still quite expensive. And, sadly, Silvercar is no longer available in Salt Lake City. I booked our car initially with Costco Travel, then used AutoSlash to search for additional savings. With their results, I was able to upgrade from a full-size car to an SUV for about the same price. I consider that a win.

12 destinations that inspired the world’s most famous writers. – If you’re looking for inspiration, check out these amazing destinations. I’d love to visit many of these cities and just chill for a while. We’re actually releasing a podcast on Dublin at We Travel There on Monday. Maybe it will inspire you to finally book that trip ahead of St Patrick’s Day.

Nevada rescinds mask mandates for casinos, effective immediately. – With more and more people vaccinated, cities and tourist destinations will start removing mask mandates to encourage travel and improve their battered economies.

A Unicorn! The Lowest Status to Ever Give Me So Much Free Stuff. – For many airlines, entry-level elite status doesn’t do much for you. In most cases, you can get the same perks (like free checked bags and priority boarding) just by having the airline’s credit card. Having the card is cheaper, causes less stress, and doesn’t require you to fly a ton just to get it. But, I’m happy to see United treating Ryan so well.
