Let's be realistic – none of us like planning a holiday. It's exciting at first but after the first day or two of shifting through the countless sites, deals, hotels, hostels, flights and other options, we just want it booked and sorted.
There's another option though: expos. The latest to hit Melbourne is the USA, Canada and Alaska Expo, a one-dayer compiling all the information you could possibly need from a number of travel agents. South America, Mexico and Hawaii also feature.
Hourly deals will give the lucky winners a $1000 credit for bookings made on the day at the expo.
