Solo Vacations Travel. 6 Tips On How to Save on Solo VacationsTravel:  As much as I love the road less traveled by, dodging leering crocodiles and navigating cholera epidemics and low grade civil wars, I have been mulling ways to have a fall vacation without adding a rider to  my life insurance policy.

The first rule of thumb on pricing on Solo Vacations Travel: It’s always about supply and demand. The best strategies? Demand goes way down when rumors of bad weather are plentiful. In reality, these dire predictions are not necessarily accurate. Secondly, back to school reduces demand since many parents and families are not going on vacation then. You will find fewer crowds and more bargaining power. Here are 6 of my strategies...

Best Flight Tips

Best Flight Tips. I have spent hours this week trying to get really cheap flights to Central Europe in the fall. The 5 tips below are what I have found personally. I tried both the official sites for several airlines as well as Expedia, Priceline and Cheapo Air. This is what I discovered.

1. The lowest price is not always the best deal. Although the fall shoulder season is somewhat less than summer, the really cheap rates are in the dead of winter. In addition, when you surf the net and see unbelievable rates take a look at how many hours your journey will take at that rate. I found my 11 hour flight could take 23 hours! So it isn’t just a matter of how many stops there are and where they are but what the delays are between the connection...
