Next Vacay: Travel Hacking For Dummies (or lazy people like me!)
Not a day goes past without me seeing some viral news story about some girl or guy who ‘travel hacks’ (whatever that means) and flies from Los Angeles to Rome for $100 or gets some crazy business-class flight from Dublin to Tokyo for less than $1k. “Watch how this travel hacker does it” blah blah etc. I travel, a lot, as you guys know but I’ve never worked out this travel hacking game, which kinda pains me, to be honest.
Suddenly I hear about Next Vacay. Well played guys! Basically, these guys do the travel hacking for you, so you get the cheap deals, those crazy discounts but you don’t have to worry about taking out a million credit cards and stacking up air miles. They work it out, so we don’t have to, and I’m all for that.
Who Is Next Vacay Aimed at?
Me, basically! And a whole lot of other people. The people who will get the biggest benefit of Next Vacay are these kinda people:
- People who travel or holiday a lot, but can’t work out air miles, travel hacking etc (me!)
- People who are happy to travel without 1 year notice, if you can take off within a couple of months, you’re golden!
- Compulsive holiday bookers. See a destination you wanna go? Book! Waiiiit. Hold up. Next Vacay will do the same thing, but for travel hacking prices!
- Anyone interested in crazy holiday deals, or have heard about travel hacking but don’t have time to deal with learning the whole system
I’m living in airports these days….
So, Who is Behind Next Vacay?
It’s pretty simple. It’s a 2 person team which I love – Naveen and his wife Shaylee, and they LOVE to travel. Based in the US, Naveen created some software that would continuously search airfare websites and alert them when they found a crazy good price. They developed it further, and it would search for a few airports that they could fly to, but also they searched only for amazing places, or fun destinations that they were keen on, and limited it to only alert them with the best deals and cheapest ticket sales. So they would travel, and travel cheap!
US to India return. $300! Naveen and his dad, BUSINESS CLASS to Italy, return $1500! Soon friends and family were getting in on the act, asking for help.
If you’re dreaming of a cheap ticket to India, to catch the Taj Mahal, check out Next Vacay….
The Taj Mahal, all to myself 😍 Wanna know how I managed to visit the Taj Mahal without the crowds?! Check out my blog Onestep4ward.com This is my 7th of the 7 World Wonders, which is your favourite? I also wrote a blog post about all 7, so check that out too! #tajmahal #thetajmahal #agra #india #unesco #unescoworldheritage #7wondersoftheworld #7wonders #onestep4ward
So their friends did it – roundtrip to Paris $425. Australia return. $580. Iceland return, $278. Santorini, Greece return $393. This was a winning formula, and so Next Vacay was born!
“Every single deal is reviewed and assembled by hand by us. We know you have bosses and family to talk to before booking. This is why we do not send last-minute deals. We put ourselves in the shoes of someone who has to request paid time off and coordinate with a partner who also likely has to do the same. The deals we send include links to real ticket itineraries for desirable weekends like Memorial Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year’s.”

Awesome, but How Does Next Vacay actually work?
Step by step, even my mum (sorry mum!) could work this out, here we go:
- Select your nearest airport (Europe, US, Canda, or Australia at this stage)
- Sign up for the month free trial.
- Check out email! Next Vacay will start sending you out travel-hacking price return flights from your airport of choice
- Once you like the look of one (or a lot!), Next Vacay send you a step-by-step how to book directly with the airline. It’s always better to do it like this, if there are any probs, you’re covered.
- If you’re good to go, sign up for the ridiculously cheap annual membership. $25 per YEAR!
- If you aren’t loving the options the team are sending you after 6 months, you’ll get your money back. Wow!
The Benefits of Next Vacay
For $25, you get travel hacking prices and you don’t have to do any of the leg work. That’s a dream! I’ve tried to learn travel hacking, air miles stuff before, but this is a much better option and it’s super cheap.
And of course, on the off chance you’re not happy within 6 months, money back guarantee. It’s a win-win. I can’t wait to see what they come up with for my mum and for me, I’ll keep you posted!
Next Vacay in the Future
These guys are going places, so grab the cheap price while you can. As they hire more staff, they plan to expand into Asia (perfect for me, from Bangkok, my base). Also, as an online guy myself, I love to see couples create amazing services like this, and it’s brilliant to work with a small team, getting all the direct amazing customer service that comes with that.
So check out these guys are their social media, and you’ll see all the ridiculously happy customers give their awesome cheap prices:
In the mean time, my mum, my sister and I will be taking advantage of all the cheap flights coming our way. Give it a crack guys – remember, 1 month free trial so nothing to lose. And only $25 PER YEAR after that, if you book flights at least once a year, this will work out for you. Thank me later!
