This new edition of The Penny Pincher’s Passport to Luxury Travel provides readers with the secrets and wisdom necessary to travel first class on a tight budget. Engaging and entertaining true-life travel anecdotes demonstrate how the luxury travel experience is not impossible for most travelers, while, in down-to-earth, accessible language, the author tells travelers exactly what to do and not to do to travel in style. "Quick Tips" reinforce the most important information in each chapter, and "Key Points" provide a step-by-step summary at the each chapter's end. Over 30 pages of appendices provide listings of toll-free numbers, comparison charts of airline, hotel, and car rental frequent-user programs, as well as relevant Internet sites and software programs.
