Dodging airline fees? It's possible.

Yes, it does feel like the airlines are nickel and diming us to death - pay for your luggage, pay for your exit row seat and on and on.  Here's a great article I found in the New York Times Travel section on how to avoid all those annoying airline fees.  For instance, I didn't know that by using a particular credit card I can check bags for free, did you?  And I love this little trick: take your overpacked carry-on all the way to the gate and THEN have them check it instead of trying to cram it into the overhead bin.  No charge.  See more tips at the link below:

About Me

My photo
I didn’t dip my toe in an ocean until I turned 25 and my friend Sandy and I traveled to Puerta Vallarta, Mexico. After that week, I was hooked. I loved being somewhere new; smelling the smells, tasting new food, seeing how other people lived. It energized me. As luck would have it, I landed a job that allowed me to travel all over the US and often to Canada. Being a sports event television producer, I was on the road all the time. That's when my love affair with travel began. Now, its 20 years later and still no one gets more “geeked up” about planning a vacation than I do. All I need is a destination and some travel companions and my fire is lit! I start delving into my favorite hotel sites, sifting through photos and reviews, comparing, contrasting -it’s like an addiction. The travel shows with tips and trends? I study them like a playbook. I LOVE doing the things most people hate doing before they go on vacation. Whether it be searching for a food tasting tour with a local or discovering a romantic B&B in the middle of New York - I’ve found it and I’ll share it with you. So....where should we go?
