Tricks for Making Travel Cheaper

Getting a great deal on a summer vacation doesn't have to be difficult, and there are several things you can do to bring down your holiday cost.

Try a low-cost airline. Airlines like Norwegian Air and Wow Air offer cheap flights abroad.

Take a layover. It might take longer, but the price often beats a nonstop flight.

Be flexible. Certain days of the week are cheaper than others.

Travel in the off-peak season. Figure out when the shoulder seasons or low seasons are for your destinations, and try to go then.

Get a credit card with no international fees. You don't want to get home and find out you were slammed with a lot of foreign transaction fees. Check out our Best Credit Cards.

Bundle. It's often cheaper to bundle airfare and hotel together through an online travel agency.
