I don’t know if you’ve noticed this or not…but there is a link on the Expedia page to ASAP Deals which list hotel deals that are up to 50% off.
They change every day at midnight (PDT), so you have to be ready to book something that day…but if you’re looking for some great deals on a hotel, you’ll see them here.
It also looks like there are hotels for a lot of different locations each day, so whether you know where you want to go already, or are just looking to get away, hopefully you’ll find what you’re looking for.
Under those deals, you’ll also find deals on entire packages including airfare, as well as other daily deals on hotels that are up to 75% off!
So if you’re not sure what hotel you want to stay at…but want a great deal, make sure you check out this page every day!

British Airways is having a “November Seat Sale” with some really great prices! They are having their world sale that will give you great prices on airfare as well as hotel stays not only in London, but all over the world. I was really impressed with their prices. I also usually only think of them as an airline to get to London, but was surprised that their prices are great for other parts of the world as well.
I looked at airfare from Newark, NJ (since I prefer to fly out of this airport), and to fly to London was only $229 each way, and only $239 each way to either Rome or Milan. I’ve seen prices a lot higher than that, so I was impressed. They also include prices for 3 or 6 nights at a hotel in each city, so it can be even easier to book your trip.
If you’re interested, you have to book by November 19th, although you can travel from November 17, 2009 – March 28, 2010 (excluding December 21-23 2009) and March 29 – May 23, 2010. The only exception is for travel to India where the travel periods are November 17 – December 10, 2009 and December 25, 2009 – May 23, 2010.
I’ve flown on British Airways in the past, and really enjoyed the flights. They have an “upgraded” experience where you’ll get over 200 on-demand entertainment options (so you won’t be bored if you can’t sleep during your flight!), complimentary food and cocktails on all flights, world class service, and a comfortable in-flight experience. What I really like is that they give you a blanket, cushions, eyeshades, and even flight socks to help you become more comfortable with your flight.
If you’re interested, they also have convenient lounges at Terminal 5, so you can relax while you’re waiting for your flight home from London Heathrow.
If you’re not sure where you want to go, you can look at British Airway’s destination guides, or if you’re traveling between NY and London, can visit MetroTwin.
Looking at all of these cities around the world that are included reminds me how I’m still looking forward to traveling to so many places in the future, such as Cairo, Istanbul, and Madrid. If you’re interested, take a look, and finally take that dream vacation you’ve been waiting to book.

With the economy the way it is, many people are either cutting down their vacation plans, or are cutting them out all together.
One way to save money on a vacation, but still have some sort of getaway is to do something close to home. If you live anywhere near the Jersey Shore, here is a great idea for a week long vacation, a long weekend trip, or even a day trip.
Morey’s Piers (in Wildwood, NJ) is having a FREE Radio Disney Summer Concert Series, starting Monday, June 29th, and going through the end of August. Each Monday, there will be 2 concerts by a Radio Disney artist, as well as an artist meet and greet afterward. They are completely free, so you will get to have a great time, and not have to worry about spending money on it.
To find out the concerts going on when you want to visit, once you’re on their site, click on “Events” at the bottom of the page.
Morey’s Piers is a great place for a New Jersey Vacation. You don’t have to spend a lot, and you can have a lot of fun – and create life long memories. Here are some other helpful links to get the most out of your trip:

Orbitz has now added Hotel Fee Cuts as well as Hotel Price Assurance to their website. This means that if you book a hotel, and then someone books the same hotel for less, you’ll get your cash refund…automatically.
Previously this was only good for airfare, but now they have added hotels in as well.
So if someone books the same itinerary as you, but at a lower price, you’ll get a refund! This is great because you won’t have to do anything. You don’t need to keep an eye on the price to see if it drops, because part of the Orbitz Price Assurance is that they will do it automatically.

Have you wanted to book a trip to Walt Disney World, but found that it would be too expensive, especially once you add in all of the food you’ll have to buy? If so, now is the time to book your trip. If you visit Walt Disney World between August 16th and October 3rd, 2009, stay on property, and get park tickets, everyone that stays in your room will get to eat for free!
When I say free food, I don’t mean that you’ll get to eat some tiny little meal. I mean you’ll get a LOT of food, and all for free. You’ll get a counter service meal, table service meal, and snack for each night that you are there. Trust me, this is a LOT of food.
You’ll have a lot of restaurants to choose from, and you will not go hungry! This is also a great time to visit, as the weather is nice and warm, and once Labor Day hits, the kids go back to school, so it’s not as crowded as it can be the rest of the year. If you think about how much money you spend on vacations for food, you’ll realize how much this can save you.

If you’re looking to find a hotel, but don’t want to spend a lot of money, take a look at Travelocity. They have 100 hotels in different locations that are less than $100.00 a night. Hopefully you’ll find a hotel in the area you want to visit!

Looking to go on vacation later this year, but don’t want to spend a lot of money? Walt Disney World might sound like a really expensive vacation, but when you compare it to other vacations – especially when Disney has certain deals, it can be a very affordable trip. Free Disney Dining is one of these great deals that they’ve been doing for quite a few years now, and it’s great.
How do you get free dining? It’s simple. Stay at a resort on property (yes, value resorts are included as well), and buy at least a 1-park ticket per person. That’s it. Do that, and you’ll get FREE Disney Dining for yor entire trip. The Disney Dining plan regularly costs $39.99 per adult, per night, so you can see how much you can save! If you went away for a week, just the adults alone would save over $550, and even more once you include the savings in the kids food!
What do you get with the free Disney Dining Plan? You get a counter service meal, a table service meal, and a snack for each night you are there. You can use them however you like though, you don’t have to use one per day.
Let me tell you from experience, this is a LOT of food. If you bring your own breakfast (something quick and easy like bagels, poptarts, cereal, etc), you won’t have to spend any money on food while you’re on vacation.
Actually, except for souvineers (and tips for your table service meal), you won’t have to spend any money at all while on vacation! Talk about taking all of the stress out of a vacation. You can eat what you want, and not have to pay for it! Want the steak instead of the chicken nuggets, but it’s normally twice the price? No problem, it’s all included.
If you’ve been thinking of going to Walt Disney World, this can definitely be the best deal of the year if you enjoy your food!
Apple Vacations is having a super sale with up to 50% off nice warm destinations such as the Caribbean and Mexico.
They have all-inclusive stays for a week for $699.99 per person.
