As posted a week ago, the well-known guide book company Lonely Planet is running a promotional campaign they call 12 days of christmas. Started on the 1st December it is now only 3 more days left to get a deal.

Todays deal is however pretty interesting and will benefit some people as their shipping rate sometimes can kill that good price that you found on a specific book you wanted. Today the shipping is free if you spend more than 25 GBP in their shop. At the same time all pocket guides are £5/€7.50 + Free Shipping by using the code POCKETDEAL

For more information and guide books please visit www.lonelyplanet.com

If you are one of those who have bought a flight ticket to Iceland with any of the available low-cost carriers then you might find this link useful. One of the biggest selling points for Iceland is the spectacular Aurora Borealis ( which is actually visible from all areas above the polar circle) with its dramatic coloring of the sky. Also commonly known as Northern Lights.

However it can also be very elusive and not always you are lucky to be able to see it due to weather and clouds.

The Icelandic meteorological office are currently giving Aurora reports on their webpage which can help you to plan when and where you could see it.

Check out their Aurora report on this link en.vedur.is

To be sure you will get the lowest fare possible, you sometime have to turn to different scanners on the market and compare the results. The reason for this is that different scanners work with different airlines and sometimes one scanner can give you a better price from another airline which is not covered by the other scanner.

There is a whole sea of scanners on the market and there are far many then the ones that will be listed here below.
But it will give you a little bit more advantage in your hunt for great deals!
