Here are some tips I have to make my own and anyone else's travel and vacations easier and CHEAPER. 1. If you can stay somewhere with a kitchen that isn't too much more expensive, get it. At least a refrigerator... You can pack salads and sandwiches at the very least so you don't have to eat out every meal. It's much cheaper and usually healthier and less time-consuming as well. 2. All those free samples of shampoo, conditioner, deodorant, toothpaste, etc that you get throughout the year, save to take with you on vacation. It's easier to pack than a large bottle, cleaner, and you can throw the used containers away. And best of all, it doesn't cost you a dime! 3. Of course most people know to plan ahead. Usually, the farther ahead you plan you will get better discounts. Sometimes you can even call the hotel or wherever you're staying and negotiate with them. Or you can feel free to try all those sites such as Hotels.com, Priceline.com, etc. Also, see if your hotel offers free continental breakfast. If they do, be sure to take advantage of it! You're paying for it. It will make breakfast easier and again save you some money. Please list your best travel tips for easier travel and money savings!

We used orbit.com for our vacation this year and found a hotel 3.5 miles from Disney's Magic Kingdom for three days and two nights for only $115. We also have bought bottled drinks in bulk from Wal-mart and snacks to keep from having to stop at convient stores. We are doing the continental breakfast. I didn't think about the free samples, I will keep that in mind for next year.

Thank you for your good advice,friend.I am planning to have a travel this year.Originally,My husband and I planed to join in a tourist party,because it is convinient and sometimes it has discounts,not very expensive.But may be it will not be independent,and we should follow so many people,it will be boring.Is that right?

Great Advice. Also it is good to shop around for the best deals and don't book at the last minute. Normally airfare and hotel charges are more expensive at the very last minute.
