For the beach bums: Cancun, Mexico – We recommend booking an all-inclusive resort.

For the outdoorsy: Great Smoky Mountains – We recommend cabin rentals from

Next Vacay Airfare Alerts

December 26, 2017

Alright guys, you know that we’re all about finding deals for upcoming travel both domestic and international, so we were excited and skeptical to hear about a new site called Next Vacay. The lowdown: An annual membership fee of $25, and customized travel tips based on your preferred airports and ideal destinations.

Our concern: How is this different from free sites like Airfare Watchdog or Get The Flight Out?

Our finding: Next Vacay is a company full of PEOPLE. Yes, human beings who can answer the phone and aren’t just outsourced customer service. These are the people who are researching deals, not just bots. The owners are also a super kind and friendly couple who are passionate about travel, and turned their passion into a business. Sound familiar?! What separates them from the rest is you don’t have to do any of the work. You simply plug in your preferred airports and ideal destinations, and you receive emails with the best deals.

Thanks to Next Vacay, we’ve realized international flights out of Atlanta are much cheaper. This wouldn’t have been on our preferred airports list had they not mentioned it. It’s only a four hour drive from Nashville, and we’ve been dying to visit ATL! Two birds with one stone, and much more affordable. This is perfect for anyone who’s been looking for a reason to visit a specific U.S. city.

Here’s a couple of the email alerts we’ve received, so you have a better idea of how it works:

Short and sweet emails that tell you how quickly to book, and for which months. When you click on the blue link in the email, it takes you to Google Flights with suggested travel dates to ensure the lowest price. We’re SUPER excited to announce that we will be booking the next best flight alert to either France, Italy, or Spain during April or May. Tune in to our social media @wanderlustgirls to find out what deal we find!

If you think about it, you’re basically paying $25 a year for a full-time flight tracker. This is the perfect membership for the avid wanderluster. Explore your country more, and explore the world as well.

Aloft Hotel for Franklin, TN Vacation

Another lovely stay at the Aloft Hotel in Cool Springs. As we’ve told you, we’re totally smitten by the town Franklin and it’s magical little village called Leiper’s Fork. If you can’t manage to book a house through Pot N’ Kettle cottages, the Aloft is just four miles from downtown Franklin! (Franklin itself does not yet have a hotel… key word YET.)

If you’ve never visited an Aloft, it’s the perfect affordable stay for families with kids (check out that pool) and for single travelers (aka pool table, snack bar, and happy hours.) Their best feature is their squishy snooze-approved beds and pillows. Thank you Aloft for another fun, no-fuss visit.
