Top 5 Tips for Exchanging Money

Top Tips for Exchanging MoneyIn Europe, the only place I have ever seen U.S. dollars is the LHR airport.  I have never seen U.S. dollars accepted anywhere else in Europe.

In this blog post The Traveling Professor gives some simple and never published before ways to exchange currency to use in Europe.

How to Save on Airport Parking

save money on airport parkingThe Traveling Professor is surprised about how costs can vary on airport parking. For example, at New York's JFK airport parking can be about $25 if parking on-site, about $18 a day if parking off-site.  Westchester airport charges an amazing $30 a day. At Dallas DFW airport it is $31 per day.  So, if traveling on a 2-week trip, it would not be impossible to spend a whopping $350 just to park a car.  Considering airfares to Europe are only a few hundred dollars more, that's a lot of money.  Nice friends or relatives may offer to drive you to the airport, but if you are like me, I hate to impose upon them  An obvious alternative is to use a close by off-site facility which usually saves 30%-50% and sometimes that is a good choice.  In today's blog post, The Professor will give a few more good tips on how to save on airport parking.
