On one #OneTravelChat the topic was Travel Hacks and participants shared many useful travel hacks, including photos of hotel suite upgrades and tips to get them and other travel deals. I love the crowd-sourcing method of information sharing, as it helps everyone travel happier, and save money, time, and stress on every trip. A nice mix of travel brands and individuals attended the chat. Their Twitter handles are displayed below so go ahead and follow your favorites (or all).
For more information about how to find travel deals and win contests in Twitter chats, please see the McCool Travel article: Finding Travel Deals In Twitter Chats (Win Travel Prizes, Too!). #OneTravelChat is every Thursday at 2pm EDT / 11am PDT. A different person hosts #OneTravelChat each week (not always me!) and the travel topic varies each session.
Below are the #OneTravelChat questions, as asked by myself or One Travel, along with selected answers. To read the entire thread, search “#OneTravelChat” in Twitter and set the date (from and to) to April 13, 2017.
