A reader pointed out that it was irresponsible for me to post this because if you’re in an accident, improperly using a coupon could invalidate your insurance coverage. Follow an article by Million Mile Secrets for a more legitimate way of getting your fee waived.

A reader sent me this highly detailed and interesting trip report! It’s quite a bit different from the kind of travel I do, and certainly in a different writing style. I thought it’d be fun to post it here. The reader went to the Club Med Turks and Caicos Resort.
If you’re ever looking at fare rules, travel agent forums (who’d be looking at those for fun!?), or out of pure interest, knowing some travel agency lingo can be helpful. Note that I’m not a licensed travel agent, rather, just did some research on some words/phrases that I’ve encountered. If you have any requests, put them in the comments and I’ll do my best. Right now the list is rather short, but as I encounter words/phrases, I’ll put them here – a handy-dandy reference guide!
There are some good deals out of Toronto and Montreal…
Toronto YYZ – Nice NCE on Turkish Airlines for $517USD
This fare is available late March and all of April. You have to have a long layover in Istanbul, however, you may qualify for a free hotel in Istanbul from Turkish Airlines. From what I’ve heard they’re nice hotels, and Istanbul is a GREAT city to have a full day in!
Thank you Michael_V on Flyertalk for pointing this out!
Hot Wire is having a promotion until March 2, 2015 (though these types of deals usually end early), where they’re automatically discounting $38CAD off a 4-star reservation or higher, including tax. There are no minimums, that is, you can book single nights to maximize the discount. This discount only applies to their “Hot Rates,” which are opaque booking. This means that you do not know the exact hotel you’re getting prior to booking. However, with a little bit of digging, it’s not too hard to figure out what hotel you’d be staying at.
