Sara Ryan Duffy is now my hero and may have supplanted Samantha Brown as overall travel goddess and who I wanna be when I grow up. I have stayed green with envy watching each show.
But the best thing about this show has been the added content on Bravo's website. And I am going to devote a few posts to some great tips Sara and her team shared online that I thought were great and fit the idea of my blog.
So here we go... I can't embed the video but it's worth the click through.
Traveling on a Budget
And here are a few of my "TripTip's":
- Don't assume you can't get a great deal at a high-end hotel. The NYTimes has had quite a few articles about all the recent bargains in luxury travel. They're losing corporate business fast an furiously.
- Book with the hotel directly and don't be afraid to ask for a lower rate or to know what special promotions they have. They want your business - they NEED your business.
- If you can afford it, take advantage of overseas travel NOW. The dollar hasn't bought this much in Europe in years. Things are completely reversed from a year ago. That was then.
