It's never too early to plan ahead for great savings on travel, and when it comes to peak times like holidays, the farther ahead you prepare, the better. So, it should come as no shock to readers that we are thinking of Thanksgiving trips now, five months from gobbler gobbling.
As one of the largest countries in Europe, Spain naturally has a wide variety of landscapes and climates, from Madrid's fairly harsh plateau weather to the balmy sea air that typifies the Costa del Sol. There are also extremes in hotel accommodations, even on tours, as the sampling mentioned here will illustrate.
With the pound at $1.83, the idea of two free hotel nights in London sounds pretty great. So we were excited when we heard about British Airways' latest promo -- buy a ticket from New York to London for a flight any time between now and December, and get two free nights in a London hotel (or one free night if you're traveling alone.)
Airlines move in throngs: if one lowers prices, others are sure to follow. That sort of mob mentality makes prices very good right now for folks traveling to or from Chicago, Indianapolis, Boston, Washington or New York, thanks to sales from ATA and US Airways that have been matched by most other airlines. Southwest, meanwhile, has a stunning $66 sale that stands alone.

From Amy Brown: "Recently my husband and I went to China on an organized tour with Champion Holidays. Our experience while their was flawless. The tour operators were magnificent. Our meals, lodging and transportation was wonderful. Although we travel very often, I was skeptical going into this trip because there were so many unknowns. I had put all of my confidence into the Frommer's website as they were my referral for this tour company. Another member of our group had also gotten the information from the Frommer's update. I have used this site many times to steer me to the reputable companies and it has never let me down."
From Anthony Camilli: "My wife and I recently returned from our Honeymoon with a group tour on the Extraordinary Egypt tour offered by MISR Travel. While we enjoyed the sights and surroundings in Egypt, we were less than satisfied with the quality of service from our tour company, MISR Travel (run by the Egyptian government). We┬┐re writing this open letter to your readers in the hope that they will learn from our mistakes when heading to Egypt with a group tour. As such, we offer the following tips."
From Mandy Mark: "I've bought a few Chico's Travelers items, and I really love that they're wrinkle-free and comfortable. I'm trying to take only a small suitcase on my two-week trip so I'm wondering about how quickly they dry and/or what kinds of experiences people have had with this clothing line on trips. Thanks."
From Shelley Tankersley: "Just returned from Rome yesterday. Fabulous, but hot weather all week. Here are a few tips and observations to those interested:"
From Sheela Tawney: "We have been looking forward to a vacation in Oahu for over a year. We were going to stay a couple of weeks -- one week will be business by day, but now we are beginning wonder if Hawaii is the best destination. A lot of what I read is a litte depressing; it's all about how crowded and commercial almost everything is. While I want to see Honolulu and Waikiki, go to a nice restaurant and lots of tourist sites I can do a lot of these things at home."
