  • Students can keep summer vacations affordable with easy steps

    2010-05-10

    This summer, millions of students across the country will take to the roads and skies on a vacation with friends or family. Yet with mounting airline fees and a weak dollar in the international market, students will have to be clever to save some money on their international excursions. Fortunately for student travelers heading overseas on a budget, ABC News is reporting a number of tips and tricks to squeeze every dollar out of a vacation.

    While the list contains many common hints like booking far in advance, there are several more unique and esoteric ways to get the most bang for one's buck on an international vacation.

    One option is to consider pre-paying for hotel rooms. Many major chains offer advance purchase rates that are often substantially lower than normal room rates. The downside to this practice is that it locks the guest into a specific hotel and date, removing any flexibility that they may require, though many travelers will not find this inconvenient.

    Another modern idea is to check online reviews on places like Travelocity.com, which can provide helpful advice about what hotels or restaurants will overcharge, who offers the best deals and where the best free entertainment can be found in a new city.
