Maybe it's a problem of memory with Leap Day only coming once every four years, but it's not something I associate with travel deals. Yet, here we are. Planes, trains, and automobiles (and hotels) are offering deals whether or not it's you're once-every-four-years birthday.

Lots of food deals for Leap Day are focusing on getting something special for those folks who have a February 29 birthday, ensuring that their infrequent birthdays are something to celebrate. With our bonus day in 2020, you'll be able to find 50% off train tickets through Amtrak, discounts on flights, free tickets for leaplings through Megabus, and a whole lot of cheap hotel rooms.

Check out the best Leap Day flight deals and travel deals.
