Little Budget Travel Book Giveaway
August 9, 2009
Going on vacation is fun but I do have a problem with it. Not only are you not earning money while you’re away, you’re also typically spending more money than you would at home. Of course, I’m not suggesting that you skip your vacation, just find some ways to make it cheaper!
* Want to Spend Less Traveling
* Wonder Why Your Friends are Always on Vacation
* Like to Have More Fun Without Emptying the Bank Account
* Care about Money but Still Believe Experiences are Key to Happiness
I also stopped by Amazon to see what the reviewers over there had to say. Here’s a review by Mike Piper.
“As you can see from the page count, this book is quite short. There’s very little fluff. The whole book start to finish is tip after tip for saving money on your travels.
As to the quality/freshness of the suggestions, I found the overwhelming majority of them to be ones I hadn’t heard before. (Though admittedly, my wife and I aren’t very frequent travelers.)
I found myself taking a lot of notes as I read it, and there’s no doubt that I’ll be reading through it again before planning our next trip. If you actually use the tips in this book, it’s easy to see how it could pay for itself many times over with just one trip.”
David is going to give away a copy of his new book to two Money Smart Life readers. To enter the giveaway simply leave a comment below with your favorite frugal travel tip. The giveaway will end on August 17th when I’ll randomly select two people who have left a comment and David will send them a book!
I’ll start it off with one of my travel tips that saves us money every time we fly somewhere. Park in satellite parking and take the free bus or train into the airport so you don’t have to pay the high rates at the parking garages close to the terminals.
Leave your budget travel tips below, good luck!
