Enough in the search bar on Twitter to enter queries like "discount travel" "discount tickets" and you the system will select the appropriate options.

Subscribe to the official accounts of the airlines and hotels
Discounts on travel and accommodation can be obtained from first hands – from airlines and hotels, which are usually regularly update their pages and publish special offers and promotions.

If you have any problems during the trip – post to Twitter
Lost your Luggage, delayed flight? Write about it on Twitter and accompany your tweet with the name of the airline, then thousands of followers on Twitter will be able to see that this airline does not solve customers ' problems. In most cases, major airlines and hotels on Twitter, I try as soon as possible to resolve problems that arise. In major Western airlines have entire departments which are monitoring their Twitter feeds 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and solve the problems of their passengers. Sometimes even faster than through conventional telephone connection.
The main thing is to make your tweet as informative as possible: with the flight number, exact description of problem, etc. you Can attach photos of lost Luggage, lack of the promised sea view, clean room, etc. the Mandatory condition is to insert a reference the company to which you apply - @aeroflot.
