Travel Less Expensively Without Sacrificing Luxury or Comfort

Don't Travel Cheap, Travel Smart and Save Money

cheap travel tipsI read a lot on traveling "cheap".  If you are like me, you are NOT going to:

  • Sleep in a hostel or a stranger's couch.
  • Ride in a bumpy bus over 11 hours through rough terrain to save $10.
  • Be herded into a cheap, budget, no-frills airline.
  • Wait in line for 4 hours to get into a museum for free.

These are the kinds of "tips" I get delivered into my mailbox all day.    Take a look at my blog post to see how to travel less expensively, without sacrificing luxury or comfort.

How To Plan a Budget Trip to Paris or France

Don't Be Cheap, Be Frugal

Our Traveling Professorbudget tours in paris and italy tours are not budget tours, and with the exception of one tour we run, they are not super-luxury tours either. On our Traveling Professor tours we like to stay at good 3 or 4 star hotels in a central location that are a good value.  But some people, when traveling on their own, like to plan a budget tour.  Here are some of my ideas for saving money without sacrificing comfort.

The Joy of Inexpensively Flying Premium Economy Overseas

Flying Premium EconomyIf you are like The Traveling Professor, you abhor those overnight coach class trans-Atlantic flights from North America to Europe.  They are jam-packed, cramped, and they are practically impossible to get any sleep on.  You could always book business or first class, but that will probably cost about $3,000 or more.  But on a recent small group tour to Italy, we took an overseas flight from New York to Italy, I flew in comfort with a good 6 hours of shut-eye, for less than a coach-class seat.  See why Premium Economy is the only way to go to Europe.

5 Places to Eat in Florence Italy

Flying Premium Economy

The Professor just returned from a small group tour to Italy.  We saw a lot of great sites like the David at the Accademia and the classic Renaissance Italian art at the Uffizi Palace.  We enjoyed the charm and history of this great Tuscan city.  But when it came time to eat, we took advantage of the bounty of wonderful Italian food, Tuscan style. The best restaurants in Florence feature fresh vegetables, aromatic herbs, home-made pasta, organic beef.  Don't forget about the pizza, cheeses, fruits and of course the best gelato in the world.  Read about The Traveling Professor's ppicks for some of the best restaurants in Florence.
