My friend and I weren’t travelling on a shoestring but we also hated the idea of spending so much just for a place to sleep and shower. By being diligent I managed to snag us a room in a 3 star midtown hotel for $90/night that normally listed for $170 or more.

Guest post alert: One Sunday in March of this year, I was able to ride a wave of oversold flights, getting bumped from flight after flight, in the end collecting $1200 in free travel vouchers from Delta Airlines. This story is about that day, my biggest windfall to date.
Have you ever imagined going on a holiday to Europe but actually getting money refunded to you when you are flying home? Well, if you like shopping, then this Thrifty Thursday guest post by Jo Karnaghan will tickle your fancy!
It’s time to take a break from our regularly scheduled blogging to bring you some updates from Travel.com.au. Travel.com.au are an online booking agency whose monthly sponsorship is helping me to see the world.
Last week, Katrina shared how she saved thousands on a Kumuka tour just by shopping around and diligently doing her homework before finally finding a tour reseller with a big sale. Yes, it did seem like a lot of time and effort – something we all might not have or want to put in to the search – but there is a quick and easy way to at least save 10% off a tour without much effort at all.
I am a solo female traveler. As such, I completely understand that it is not everyone’s idea of a holiday/ adventure experience, but I feel more comfortable and safe when traveling as part of an organized tour. I found the tour I wanted, but being a thrifty traveler, I didn’t pay full price and here’s how I did it.
This Thrifty Thursday post has been written by Jo Karnaghan, a woman that likes to travel comfortably but save money where she can. I like this post because it shows that saving money on travel doesn’t have to come from one place, but can actually add up from many small things.
Now for part 2 of how Cheryl got an amazing flight deal using miles: two international round-trip tickets with a stopover during high season for just $300.
Are air loyalty programs a bit of a mystery to you? If so, read this post where Cheryl gives the low-down on choosing the right program and earning those rewards.
International flights from Australia are not cheap, so it makes sense to get more bang for your buck by incorporating several trips into one outing. In this post I explore the Round the World for Less! airfare option through travel.com.au. Bargain? I think so.
