Here's the thing about travel deals: They're everywhere! Chances are if there's a place you want to go and a price you want to pay, you can make it happen. (Within reason: A five-star resort in Hawaii for $50 a night? Not likely.) But in this age of the internet, budget airlines, incredible competition, and wild imbalances in currencies, all it takes to save big money on a great trip is time.
You've got to be willing to do the homework. Go online, keep checking, talk to travel agents, and keep your expectations real.
