    One thought on “Make Your Travel Dollars Worth a Fortune: The Contrarian Traveler's Guide to Getting More for Less”

    1. Another good travel resource. Although I can't say that I entirely agree with the author's approach (don't pre-book, just book locally once you get to a location) there is some good travel information about what areas of the world are on sale at what times of the year. He makes a good case for going against the typical American traveling grain and using the internet and other resources to score great travel deals.

    2. C- Eh. If you've never traveled before and don't know anything and are not that adventurous, this book might be for you. I knew most of the tips already (like which days of the week are best to travel, searching various places for a flight, not buying all inclusive packages, staying at smaller, local hotels as opposed to chain hotels).

    3. Lot of good tips in here. Confirmed a fact that I found through international travel: NEVER fly a US owned airline internationally. They all suck and every foreign carrier I've flown has had better service and didn't charge ridiculous fees. At any rate, it was beneficial to read this book.

    4. 3.5 starsGreat travel tips and advice. The down side is the people who most need to read this book probably wouldn't pick it up.
