travel advice & savings



Hi, gurus of travel,

First of all, thanks for all of the guidance you guys provide for us weary, cheap travelers.

I want to go to SFO-LON on roughly 5/6-5/17. Dates are flexible, but I want to go sometime in May before the high season starts.

I’ve been through the newbie post, and have done my preliminary research. I’ve been on Orbitz, Qixo, all the airlines, Travelocity, Expedia, run the BookingBuddy search, signed up for the TravelZoo fare alerts.

First Time Going to Europe...would like advice


I’m planning my first trip to Europe and would like some advice. I’d like to visit Rome, Paris, London, Venice and Amsterdam. I’m thinking the trip will be a total of 16 days — so I’m wondering if three days in each place is enough time realistically or whether I should cut down the places I want to visit. I will say that I have family and friends in London — not sure if I need to allot more time there.

Questions about traveling 01/09 in and around London.

I will be flying into London and the hotel will be in London for 7 days.

Question 1:
Should I just book a air ticket instead of hotel in London since I do want to travel around. Or is 7 day too short to travel around anyway?

Question 2:
I am hoping to go around and do day trips surrounding London, is that feasible?

Question 3:
If so, where can I visit by train? Since I have already been to Paris, Amsterdam, Frankfurt, and Austria, I would like to see some other places if possible.

Question 4:
What are the must sees?

I appreciate any help you can offer!

ONLY 10 days for a Eurotrip - HELP!

Help, please! My sis and I have only 10 days for a Europe trip (excluding arrival and departure days). We’re flying in and out of London and are definitely planning also to hit Paris. We’re really interested in seeing Italy and Spain, as well…but is there enough time?! Or should we narrow it down? Which cities should we see? How many days is enough in each? EEK! Thanks so much in advance for any advice!

I am planning a trip with my husband and another couple to Europe in December. We are currently spending from Dec 10th-15th in the UK visiting family and friends, and doing some sightseeing/enjoying the nightlife in London, Birmingham, and Leicester. Everything is booked and ready to go for the UK, as I have been there before, thus know where to go and what to do!

Our next stop is booked to Paris, France. We are going to be in Paris from the 15th-20th…
I need help planning day activities( we’ve looked into a lot of sightseeing such as the Mona Lisa, Eiffel Tower…
