Fly To Europe For Under $300? Thanks Arthur

Wednesday, February 25, 2009

The web’s been abuzz this week with news that flights to Europe have been cropping up for under $300 as a result of — as Mr. Frommer postulates — the huge decline in trans-Atlantic flyers. Which, if true, means it’s only a matter of time before the airlines stop slashing fares and start slashing flights, […]

10 Tips To Pinching Yen While In Japan

Wednesday, February 11, 2009

As far as conversions go, Japan’s got to be one of the worst places to travel to right now. But be honest, when has lack of money ever really stopped you from traveling before? At least there are a few (okay 10) ways you can save a few thousand Yen and maybe even enjoy the […]

Fly To Asia For Next To Nothing

Thursday, February 5, 2009

Well, maybe not nothing, but there are some insane deals right now for flights across the Pacific. I don’t know what it is with American lately, but they’ve been practically giving away seats this winter (remember last week’s deals to South America?). Good news for travelers, perhaps bad news for the company. They’re offering flights […]

2009: The Year (Finally) For Traveling With The Dollar

Wednesday, February 4, 2009

I know that I’ve somewhat been harping on this whole dollar-is-good-to-travel-with-again story for a while now, but for all those readers outside of Obamaland, at least let us Americans revel in this for at least a little while before it inevitably ends (ahem — bank bailouts, deficit spending, etc…). Don’t forget how we’ve spent the […]

How To Never Pay An ATM Fee Again While Traveling

Tuesday, February 3, 2009

I remember hearing the NYT’s Matt Gross a/k/a “The Frugal Traveler” a/k/a Moby’s traveling doppelganger mention this ridiculously amazing travel advice during a talk last Fall: if you like being nailed $5 for every cash withdrawal you make abroad and paying exorbitant special interest rates for international purchases, don’t change your bank. But if you […]

Buenos Aires On Zero Pesos A Day

Friday, January 23, 2009

As the Traveler points out, Buenos Aires is pretty cheap for most foreigners anyways ($1 equals about 3 1/2 Argentine pesos as of today, 4.8 for one British pound) but for the real cheapskate, myself included (not by choice) BA has a ton of things to see and do for approximately zero dollars/pounds/pesos. One of […]

Iceland’s Economic Collapse = Influx Of Visitors

Wednesday, January 7, 2009

It’s probably best not to be too vocal while your on the street about the fact that one of the main reasons you’re in a particular country is how cheap everything is and how your otherwise meager lifestyle is elevated to that of a swingin’ business mogul during your trip. But let’s face it, currency […]

Low Cost Airlines Slash Prices; Americans Wish Desperately EasyJet and RyanAir Would Please, Please Come To The U.S.

Tuesday, December 30, 2008

As if Americans weren’t already envious enough of Europe’s wide selection of low cost airlines that charge less than the price of what most airlines in America tack on to check a second bag, they’ve now gone ahead and instituted a price war, driving fares even lower. “Let’s hope there is a price war,” Ryanair […]

Airline Promo Codes Proliferating

Tuesday, December 2, 2008

Are you one of those people that googles for promo codes before you book your flight? Well, apparently the airlines are making it easier and increasing promo code availability, hoping to siphon you away from those affiliate sites that they’re forced to pony up a commission to every time you book through them. The above […]

Fly To England For $15?

Tuesday, November 4, 2008

It may a little ways off, but Ryanair is envisioning of one day starting a new airline where one way tickets for flights across the Atlantic would be as low as £10, which is almost what I paid just to be able to watch a movie at my seat during my last flight, and that […]
