American Adventure: Vegas, New York City and Washington DC
Please RSVP to indicate your interest in this trip; nothing has been booked and details are open to discussion. I would like to have an adventure in the United States in September 2018 (so plenty of time to save for this) and have put together a provisional itinerary which includes 3 nights in Las Vegas, 4 nights in NYC and 1 or 2 nights in DC. I'm happy to share rooms to keep costs down and I anticipate that the whole thing should cost around £1500, or no more than £2000 (at current prices, all international and internal flights come to less than £700). These things are more fun with friends, so I'd love to hear from anyone who would like to join me and have some input into the arrangements. We can meet up to make arrangements, exchange views about what we'd like to see and where we'd like to go, what level of accommodation is preferred and anything else relevant to having a fun trip in three exciting US cities. Please remember that travel to the United States requires a visa; UK citizens will usually be eligible for the ESTA Visa Waiver Program (https://esta.cbp.dhs.gov/esta/) which costs $14.

What we're about

This group is for those who enjoy travelling but may not have a travel partner or prefer to travel in groups, particularly suited to those who like to keep costs down! Whether you want to join in a break which has been listed, or have seen a deal you'd like other members to know about, I hope that this group will increase opportunities to enjoy breaks, both in the UK and abroad.

This group is not aimed solely at single people, although it is single people who tend to be looking for travel companions, and IS NOT here to facilitate dating opportunities or hook-ups (although I am not naïve enough to believe that that won't happen, on occasion); couples are very welcome, as are those who are part of a couple but wish to travel without your partner, for whatever reason. We aim to provide a safe and pressure-free environment for everyone, whatever your personal circumstance.

Please remember, however, that we are not professional tour organisers (personally, I just like to get away as often as possible on bargain breaks) and are not responsible for members, so when travelling, take care of yourself and your possessions and behave responsibly.

Although I don't live in London (I do visit sometimes and will try to arrange social events to coincide), I am hoping that one or two members will offer to host social events so that members can meet and find future travel companions - in or even outside London, as we have members around the Home Counties too.

This group is free to join and we are open to all and any suggestions, so if there is somewhere you'd like to go, let us know; I keep an eye on all Wowcher, Groupon, Travelzoo & Holidaypirate deals (although many of these are not as good as they seem) as well as finding myself on budget airline sites, finding out when the cheapest flights are available. Although we are happy to post special deals from travel organisers, we do not allow commercial advertising on this site, so please post only details of trips which you are intending to take yourself.

If cheap travel, making new friends (and memories) and experiencing the world is what you enjoy, then welcome aboard and happy travelling!
