(Last Updated On: January 9, 2013)

Are you staying up late searching for ways to stretch your fun dollars this summer?  Then you’ll be excited to know that Bing Travel has a Price Predictor which uses crazy mathematical algorithms and historical data to tell you whether you should buy now or wait for an upcoming fare drop.  We think it’s pretty cool, so Trekaroo’s teamed up with Bing Travel to giveaway $1500 worth of travel dollars to Trekaroo families.  Get ready to cash it in for hotel stays, flights, restaurants, travel gear, car rentals or whatever you need for your summer family vacation!

All you have to do some writing and learn about Bing Travel’s Price Predictor. Easy peasy!

    Here is my little old blog 🙂

    It’s that time of year again, the time we want to go out and explore the world! With my daughter being old enough to enjoy looking at new things I think it is time for us to take a real excursion together as a family! So, where else should we go but Hawaii!

    We plan to go to Oahu this time and spend half our time on the North Side and the rest in Honolulu. I am too excited for word to stay at Turtle Bay. Now I have been to this beach and loved it but I have never stayed here before and I hear great things (I’ll be certain to share my experience with you all). My husband is especially excited as he is working on getting his tee time set up for the course. After our stay at Turtle Bay we plan to stay down town at the Aston Beach Hotel. This part of the trip will be more for convenience of attending the zoo, aquarium, and general touristy attractions.

    I can’t wait to share in the beauty of this island with my daughter for the first time. Post your travel plans here as well!
