What is a Triangle Trip?

by on Dec.30, 2008, under Business Travel

Many of you are probably thinking:  What is Triangle Trip?

The standard definition of a triangle trip in the travel world is:  a round trip booking with a stop over that has a purpose.  Triangle trips allow travelers to avoid purchasing three one way tickets.  You will need to know each airline’s hubs to make your triangle trip pay off and minimize the costs and layovers.

For example, you live in New York and want to go to Seattle for a wedding.  At the same time, you would like to golf in Phoenix before the wedding.  You will need to book a triangle trip that has a connection in Phoenix to reduce the cost of your travel — otherwise you would have to buy three one way tickets.  To accomplish the triangle trip, you will have to make some sacrifices such as making a stop over on your return or outbound.  The proposed itinerary for what I described would be booking a US Airways triangle trip from JFK to PHX because most of west bound US Airways flights have a stop over in Phoenix and you’ll have the benefit of getting a non stop flight.  After spending a few days golfing in Phoenix, you can hop on a plane from PHX to SEA to attend your wedding.  Your return trip from SEA may not be a non stop flight but that’s the sacrafice. 

We want to wish our readers a happy new year — a prosperous 2009!

Triangle Trip Inaugural Post

by on Dec.20, 2008, under Business Travel

Triangle Trip is a blog written by road warriors sharing their experiences to the world. Our editorial staff combines 10 million actual flight miles, 10,000 hotel stays, 25,000 days of car rentals, and even a few hundred thousand miles on trains.

We have traveled to all corners of the world as out of town executives and vacationers. We know a thing or two about travel. Unlike other blogs that are focused on getting extra points or serving as an extension of airlines/hotels, we are here to share best practices and our greatest miseries.

We believe Triangle Trip can help consultant rookies find their way to ease the weekly travel, novice vacationers to
know where to go and what to do at their destination, and eventually fix the broken travel industry once our collective voice is loud enough.

We look forward to your support by subscribing to our feed, commenting on our blog, and suggesting to us how we can improve our content.
