Tips for Finding Cheap Airfare Last Minute

Long Island's Premiere Limousine Service

P: (631) 587-8500
Looking to get one last hurrah in before summer’s end? Well we’re sure you don’t want to break the bank to do so. 

Once upon a time, securing a cheap fare was as easy as showing up to the airport and purchasing a standby ticket. Now, most flights sell out at full price - BUT there still are some tricks you can keep up your sleeve for finding the best last minute deal. 

We’ll let you in on some of the secrets: 

Download a few travel apps.  
Travel Apps | Dynasty Limousine
Aside from some of the well known booking websites (like the Kayak’s and Priceline’s of the world), there are a number of apps available all with a common goal - find consumers the cheapest fare possible. Hopper (iOS and Android) helps analyze billions of flight prices daily and is able to make predictions with 95 percent accuracy. It not only tells you when your flight will be cheapest, but will also recommend the time to buy. 

Or try Hopper’s GTFO (Get the Flight Out - punny huh?) app - think of it as the Hotel Tonight of airlines. This app complies and ranks cheap flights leaving day of or the following. For another app in the spontaneous travel category, try Hitlist - ready to show you the best deals from airports nearby. There’s also Skyscanner, Skiplagged, truly the list goes on.

Visit the airline’s website directly. 
Jet Blue | Dynasty Limousine
While yes, the above travel apps are a good way to comparison shop for deals, one underrated option many seem to forget - going straight to the airline’s website. Most airlines have newsletters that you can sign up for for last minute deals, not to mention the loyalty programs many offer. 

Set up frequent flyer accounts with your preferred airlines to take advantage of flying perks (varies airline to airline): lounge access, upgraded seats, free flights, etc.

Start tweeting.  
Seriously! Airlines tend to announce deals on their social pages, not to mention some of the popular travel bloggers - specifically The Points Guy (@thepointsguy). The Points Guy is known for being the first to report on the biggest last minute deals and pushes out ‘Amazing Deal Alerts’ on his second Twitter handle: @TPG_Alerts. 

Stay in the know and start following travel apps, travel magazines, airlines, travel bloggers, and Dynasty Limousine on social media!

No matter where your 2016 travel plans take you and what new technology can make it easier, Dynasty Limousine will be there to handle your transportation needs. We are available for pickups and drop offs at all of the major New York Airports including, JFK, LaGuardia, MacArthur Airport and for most private airports including Farmingdale Executive Airport.

5 Tips for Creating a Wedding Website

Long Island's Premiere Limousine Service
 P: (631) 587-8500
Vera Lace Wedding Website | Wedding Website Design Tips
Whether you like it or not, we’re living in a connected world. And for a bride-to-be that means:
  • Having a plethora of Pinterest boards to assist in wedding planning
  • A specific Instagram hashtag to document your journey to the alter
  • A custom Snapchat geofilter for good measure
 And of course - the ‘wedsite.’ 

Your online wedding website should be the one stop shop for all guests looking for information - from wedding room blocks to your registry and beyond. Whether you’re choosing to create a free website on a site like The Knot, Joy, or Wix, or you’re putting your design and coding skills to the test, here are some suggested rules to follow:

 1. Figure out your theme - Similar to your save the dates and invitations, your wedding website should reflect your wedding’s style. Luckily, with the amount of wedding website builders out there you can easily toggle to change your theme if change your mind post production.

2. Have an introduction - You don’t need to have a novel detailing the ins and outs of how you two first met, but some kind of welcome or intro to the website and who you are as a couple is plenty. You may even choose to introduce your guests to the wedding party, including photos of all bridesmaids and groomsmen, add a fun fact for flare.

3. Include travel & accommodation information - You may be familiar with the area you’re getting married in, but there is a good chance your out-of-towners aren’t. Dedicate a portion of your website to directions (from various major highways), where your guests can book their hotel rooms (and at what cost), and all transportation information (what time they should be ready to board the Dynasty Limousine Shuttle Bus over to the reception). You may even want to throw in some ‘things to do nearby’ for guests extending their stay.

4. Registry and RSVP - Save on invitation and postage costs by directing guests to the wedding website for these items! According to an Online Shopping Report for 2015 - nearly 70% of Americans regularly shop online with close to 50% taking advantage of free shipping. We’ll bet anyone looking to purchase items off your registry will be heading to the website anyway, so why not help them get there.

5. Additional perks - Take your wedsite one step further, include a section detailing the weekend’s schedule, provide a fool proof FAQs page, and if you're daring - a song request section.
