I don't usually. But now that I have joined Platinum One Destinations, I will be since it's basically free for me. Do you save money on each vacation? How? How much do you usually pay for each vacation? Is that wholesale prices? I now get all of my vacations at wholesale.

Now I don't travel so often because I have a child. Besides, we don't have a long vacation to have a travel. Usually we will have a trip once a year.

I didn't even take a vacation last yr. Now that I have joined P1D & have received 15,000 pts toward future vacations, I will definitely be going somewhere this year. 1000 pts = a 3 day vacation.

I seldom travel because of economic reason. However, if we do travel, me and my husband we make sure that we spend a few days on that destination. We don't buy so much stuff as a souvenir but use our money to explore more the place that we went to. I would like to travel more someday. Our plan this year is to go out of the country.

I really love to travel. I travel as often as I can afford to and for shorter durations that I used to. I now have children and dogs. Last year I took my baby son for his first holiday in Portugal. We went to the sandy coves along the Algarve coastline and to the beautiful city of Lisbon. This year we are going to Latvia and perhaps to Russia if we can get visas. The most expensive trip for me was a years journey traveling around the world. I had a working holiday visa for Australia that helped me pay for that trip. I went to New Zealand for a few months and stopped off in the Pacific islands. That cost quite a lot. Two other costly trips I have been on were two weeks in the Seychelles and two weeks in the Maldives. I have spent less on other trips that I have been on. I am an independent traveler. I book a flight, visit a number of locations, stay in locally owned accommodation and travel around by train, bus and boat. I pay a different amount for each trip, more money in Norway because it is an expensive country that in Indonesia because it is a cheap country to travel in.

According to the travel industry. You get your own website similar to expedia. Anyone can book travel from your website, but only you get it for wholesale prices. The vacations are marked up when the public views the site.
