The Greater Boston Convention and Visitors Bureau, in tandem with three-score-and-then-some hotels and inns, is serving up savings for stays through March 31 with its "Boston Overnight! Just for the Fun of It!" promotion. These affordable packages will make it easier to explore the home of clam chowder, Paul Revere's ride and that Brahmin accent.
Now you can get a GPS tracking unit with your rental car to help you stay the course on your European driving tour.
The ball has dropped in Times Square, Congress is currently in recess, and the crowds have dispersed. Now's the time to hit either spot as hotels in both cities radically reduce rates to contend with the annual January slump. You can cut your cost on meals as well (without sacrificing taste) as top-flight dining establishments kick off the new year with their annual "Restaurant Weeks."
The new England pass joins the standard BritRail pass, the Freedom of Scotland pass, and the BritRail+Ireland Pass as an option for travelers to the UK.

From M. Guest: "Can anyone direct me to some online travel resources or magazines that focus on Canadians? I am asking because although I love reading Frommer's magazine and sites such as Frommers.com, Lonelyplanet.com, Ricksteves.com they usually only present U.S. deals. That is, prices in U.S. dollars, departing from U.S. cities via U.S. travel agents and companies. Although this is understandable as I imagine the majority of their readership is American I was looking for resources, prices, departures from Canadian cities."
From Don Filiault: "Last August, while I was shopping for travel insurance to cover a 14 day cruise that my wife and I were taking in November, I noticed an advertisement for Trip Assured, a Tennessee-based travel insurance company which provides insurance through my cruise agent. When I determined that Trip Assured was at least $25 cheaper than any of the other companies, I booked my insurance with them. This proved to be a huge mistake."
From k clark: "I received a travel package offer for attending a timeshare presentation. The package requires booking the trip through Vacation Ventures in Orlando. Airfare is free if the hotel is booked through the company at their rates. My concern is that travel must be paid in full, in advance with either a money order or cashier's check. The funds are then held in escrow pending payment to the suppliers. This contradicts every rule of 'smart travel' I've ever encountered, but of course I wouldn't want to pass up a legitimate good deal."
From reneewilkins: "I just got back from a week in beautiful, snowy Winter Park. While the main activity in that area is definitely downhill skiing, there is plenty for the non-skier as well. I went up (and down) on the ski lift at Sol Vista resort, so I was able to take some great pictures from atop the mountain. (A one-trip ticket is only $5.)"
From Brett: "I just returned from a trip to London and we stayed at the Holiday Inn Express Chingford-North Circular. I was traveling with a total of 6 people (four adults and two children) and we paid 35 pounds per night per room. (We had two rooms with three people each.) The rooms were small by American standards, but by no means cramped - even with three people. They each had a double bed and a sofa bed."
