You Too Can Do Paris On The Cheap

Tuesday, June 30, 2009

This week the Frugal Traveler attempts the impossible: Paris for cheap. And he succeeds! Through a little hotel-slumming, twitter restaurant advice, and the reliance on the all-important French institution that is the picnic. “The picnic is the great democratizing institution of summer, when Parisians spill onto riverbanks and bridges and into parks and gardens, chasing […]

Your Guide To Eastern Europe On The Cheap

Friday, June 19, 2009

BootsnAll has your guide to getting around Eastern Europe cheap, from the low-cost airlines you’ve likely never heard of (BlueAir, Air Balitc, and the unfortunately named “Wizz Air” — so many jokes, way too easy), to the low-down on train travel (much slower, much less of a deal than in Western Europe). Of course, the […]

$9 Fares May Be Coming To An Airport Near You

Wednesday, May 27, 2009

A new carrier named JetAmerica (how creative) recently announced its arrival on the scene of low-cost airlines, targeting “B” and “C” markets (Toledo, South Bend, Lansing, and Newark) where airports are quick to subsidize routes servicing their ailing destinations. Perhaps Lansing may not be your first pick for a getaway, but for $9 each (going […]

Turkey Is The New Greece, But You Know, Cheaper

Thursday, April 2, 2009

Turkey has become a popular getaway for many European travelers as the Euro has taken off in value over the last few years. But as this article discovers, it’s still relatively easy to get away from the coastal developments and see the rest of the country.

9 Tips To Travel Free

Thursday, March 26, 2009

“Free” and “cheap” seem to be the theme of the site this week, which is probably a reflection of the pitiful state of my bank account (do airlines really need to charge for their tickets?).

It’s a strangely comforting feeling to revert back to those pre-mobile days where you truly can become detached from the rest of the world (minus your daily blog postings of course), and where meetings take on that old-fashioned feeling […]

Want to save money while traveling: avoid the tourists. It’s axiomatic, but its surprising how often travelers forget this simple little truth. And though Ireland’s been hit with some hard times recently — after years of staggering growth — Dublin still manages to be an all-to-easy destination to blow your travel budget, unless you know […]

Transatlantic Fare War (Cont . . .)

Thursday, February 26, 2009

Now it looks like Virgin’s getting into the act as well, dropping fares from NYC to London down to basically $0 (too bad you still have to pay those pesky fuel surcharges and taxes). This cut also marks a forgettable milestone: British travel decreased in 2008 for only the second time ever. You know it’s […]
