Trends / Unique Itineraries & Tours

Switch up your regular vacation routine and book a trip with your closest friends. We’ve gathered some ideal destinations to explore with a group. Make sure you consider distance and budget before booking. If you’re traveling from different parts of the country or world, try to select a destination easy to reach via any airport.

Austin, Texas

Austin is home to a great live music scene, including the popular South by Southwest festival. The city also offers great dining, shopping and outdoor activities — what more could you want?

The Caribbean

With several islands with a variety of resorts to choose from, the Caribbean is an ideal spot for a relaxing getaway.


Explore the cultural, historical and culinary attractions in Dublin. The city is a train or bus ride away from many other destinations in Ireland if you want to extend your trip.


For those looking for a European vibe without having to cross the Atlantic, visit Montreal. Easily accessible for those living on the East Coast of the United States, Montreal is a modern city that maintains an old-world vibe.

New Orleans

New Orleans offers a lot to see without having to travel far. You could spend your entire trip just in the French Quarter. If you and your friends like nightlife and great food, head to the Big Easy.

Ways to Sweat Less While Traveling

Traveling to exotic locales often means contending with unusual weather. Americans tend to enjoy a fairly moderate climate, which means your body doesn’t always adapt when you head to places like Africa or South America. So, how do you keep yourself from sweating and stinking up a new city? Try these tips.

Enjoy the Open Road on Your Terms

For most of us, time in the car is “me time.” You can listen to that podcast you’re captivated by, blast that pop song and sing along at the top of your lungs or listen to the next chapter in that biography e-book you’re almost finished. A road trip only amplifies those opportunities. So, next time you’re traveling by road, take the wheel and take control. Opt for a rental car on your next vacation, rather than a rideshare, taxi or public transportation, and enjoy the open road on your own terms.

Hotel Joule

I arrived in Dallas on a cloudy afternoon and, luckily, traffic was light as I drove my rental car into the city in just less than 30 minutes. The Hotel Joule was built in the 1920s in the Neo-Gothic style and is a city landmark in the heart of the business district.

Under $100: El Raval, Barcelona, Spain

Barcelona’s Ciutat Vella (or “Old City”) is often packed with tourists who wander up and down Las Ramblas spending way too many euros on overpriced paella and sangria. But the border neighborhood of El Raval is just a few steps from the bustle, but worlds away from the exorbitant prices.
