I know we are in the middle of summer and some have yet to leave on vacation.  Being a semi frugal person myself, I realize there are a few things that need to be done to keep from breaking the bank.  

  • The first is not to wait until the last minute to book a trip.
    There are already specials for the holiday season.  All that’s necessary is a small deposit and in most cases can be cancelled before the final payment is due.
  • My next point is 2018.  
    I’m seeing great promotions.  Princess Cruise Lines is offering up to a 30% per person discount, reduced rates for the 3rd and 4th guest in the same stateroom and a $100.00 per-person deposit for sailings this fall through the Spring of 2018.  How about a Christmas Time cruise?  Other cruise lines are promoting too!  Call me for for more information.

  • My 2 favorite river cruise lines are AMA Waterways and Avalon Waterways.
    Both are promoting heavily for 2018.  I’ve sailed on both and give both high ratings.  I recommend the newer ships.  For wine lovers, AMA has a number of specialty cruises featuring wine.  These ships are small compared to ocean cruise lines.  It’s best to book early for good cabin choices and reasonable airfares.


Here are a few more ideas.

  • Apple Vacations is promoting Secrets and Dreams Resorts plus many of their other brands.
  • For you train enthusiasts, Rocky Mountaineer has specials.  Can you imagine the Canadian Rockies in the fall?
  • Starwood Hotels is selling Hawaii with a 30% discount on certain brands that includes breakfast for 2.  That’s huge.
  • If you are a skier and thinking about a winter trip, the rates are best right now.

As always, I’m as close as your phone for a call or an email.  My phone doesn’t text.
