Great Values in Paris

2 star hotel parisLodging costs typically make up the most expensive part of a vacation to Paris and in Paris, hotels can be expensive. However, there are several good 2-star picks, and The Traveling Professor has them for you.  2-star Paris hotels can be a great value, but usually they do not have a restaurant (not a big deal in Paris) but probably does not have A/C.   Don't expect a spa or turn-down service.  However, with these picks, expect to get a good night's sleep at a good price.

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.
