Plan Our Own Vacation or Buy A Package?

Jump to last reply

I was looking up reviews on Go-Today and stumbled across this website that encourages us to plan our own vacation rather than purchase a package..

My husband and I will be married for 5 years this year (No kids yet.. Surprisingly, we were able to stick with our "5-year plan"!) We are in the process of planning an international vacation before settling down and having kids. I was browsing Go-Today's website and found some incredible prices (around $1000/person) for trips to Paris, London, Italy, Spain, etc... But after reading some of the posts here I was interested to see how we could do it cheaper ourselves (I like the idea of having our own itinerary).

Let's see, here's some info about us and the trip we're taking.. We live in FL and would like to fly out of JAX if possible, but we also could fly from Ft. Lauderdale or Miami. We don't really fly much, so we don't have any frequent flier miles. We're not really picky about hotel accommodations, if it has a bed, running water and a good air temperature, we're happy. We have about $2300 to spend on the whole trip, and we're open to going anywhere in Europe, Africa or Asia that would offer a good taste of culture outside of the US. So far we've been looking at Paris, London, Barcelona, Greece, Phuket, and a few other places.. But we're really open to anything. What are other ways to do a trip like this for under $1000/person? Thanks in advance for your help!
