The Worldwide Guide to Cheap Airfares: How to Travel the World without Breaking the Bank based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.
This very useful and tightly written guide explores every aspect of cheap travel, including flight consolidators, couriers, and charters. It's the first book I've ever seen that explains the complex business of airline ticket pricing and arms you with knowledge that lets you beat the airlines at their own game. If you're adventurous and super thrifty, you can even learn how to fly for free! There's a huge listing of airfare discounters and other dirt-cheap travel resources, arranged by hub city. McColl provides a mini-guide for each locale, along with tips on low-cost meals and lodging, recommended stopovers, and offbeat sights to see. This isn't your standard travel faire, either -- the travel writing is as witty and down-to-earth as any Lonely Planet or Moon-series guide. Do not--repeat--do not think you can find all this stuff on the Internet. I know of no site or group of sites that can provide so many low-cost travel airfare strategies in one quick and easy reference. It's a good read -- and it will definitely save you money.
I wish I had a copy of this book seven years ago when I went to Denmark. It was my first time out of the USA. This book would of not only explained options to me that I didn't even know I had, but also would have saved me a ton of money. It is simple to understand and I like the fact that it list not only different airlines and options, but prices as well. I can see why this book has been printed so many times as the information it contains is so beneficial to everyone. Anyone who travels should possess this informative book.
