Search Engines are a great way to find the best deals on lodging by searching multiple hotel chains and bed and breakfast sites all at once! Several of these travel sites have reward programs, so find one you like and stick with it to be rewarded each time you travel!
Cheap Accommodation | Stay with Locals
Trying to save money or simply looking for a more authentic travel experience? Rent a private or shared room in a local's home or hostel. You're directly connected with someone who knows the area inside and out. Get insider tips on where the locals go, things to see and do in the area, best restaurants, places to avoid, etc. Save money on accommodations so you can spend more of your travel money on memorable experiences!
Rental Vacation Homes
Want to live like a local, but have the place all to yourself? Search for accommodations using these vacation rental sites. Whether it's just you and your significant other, your entire extended family, or a large group of friends, vacation rentals can be a fun way to travel. Have all of the amenities of home (living area, full kitchen, etc.) while exploring a new area! Hosts will often offer local advice and recommendations and/or simply leave a slew of brochures and maps for you to peruse.
Cruises are a great method of travel because they cover your accommodations, meals, and transportation. When you break down how much you would normally spend on lodging, food, and transfers, you just might find that a cruise is the more affordable option. You may not have as much time in a given destination as you'd like, but it's a great way to get a sampling of a variety of places you may want to go back to and further discover! Check out these websites to find the best cruise deals!
Excursion Companies - Europe
Pretty much every cruise line out there offers endless options for shore excursions ranging in price and activity level. Truth be told, we prefer to book private shore excursions when we cruise because we can typically get a better price and a more personalized experience. There is a little bit of risk involved, in that if the private tour company gets you back to the ship late, you are responsible for making your way to the next port of call, whereas if you book with the ship directly, they will hold the boat for you. We used the following two companies during European cruises and couldn't have been more pleased. Use the Roll Call feature on Cruise Critic to find other cruisers on your ship interested in sharing the private tour with you. This not only brings the per person cost down, but allows you to meet fellow cruisers before you ship sets sail!
ROME IN LIMO
Rome in Limo specializes in tailor-made tours throughout Italy. Also, perfect for private/group shore excursions with a personal touch!
JOE BANANA LIMOS
Joe Banana Limos provides shore excursions, local tours and private transfers throughout Italy. Great for private cruise ship excursions.
