Not a driver at home? It doesn't matter. An automobile club membership can come in quite handy for travelers, too. With a membership you can tap into their partnerships with hotels or car rental agencies across the country.
That ID card from that class you're taking at the local community college? It will get you half-price admission at most museums and exhibits in Europe. And don't overlook loyalty programs, either: They offer everything from free coffee to upgraded hotel rooms, and many a perk in between. Membership is these programs is often free, and can be obtained on the spot.
Not Buying in Bulk If you're spending more than a few days in a city, or visiting several parks or national areas, investing in an area pass will pay off in spades. In most cities around the world, a transit pass offers discounts over piecemeal pay-to-ride fares. Sometimes they even come with museum and exhibits passes, and offer discounts at local businesses. For example, the America the Beautiful pass gives the holder and all the friends he or she can fit in the car unlimited access to more than 2, federally held public lands in the United States.
Many state parks also offer a similar pass, whether for admission, trailhead parking, or both. If your vacation has a theme, odds are there's a pass to fit it.
Eating Your Budget Part of the experience of traveling is enjoying the local cuisine. But those three meals a day can add up if you're eating all of them in restaurants. To keep your meal expenses low, ensure breakfast is included in your accommodations, buy your snacks from a grocery store or farmers' stand instead of a convenience store or kiosk near a major attraction, and order several appetizers for dinner.
Not sure that will fill you up? Have a hearty lunch out; the portions are often the same, but the prices are lower.
Being Overly Accommodating To the finicky traveler, all hotels are not created equal. If you're traveling with kids , or have particular business needs, be very specific when you're booking your reservation. A low rate is great, but if you're paying extra for the things that make your trip possible, you might find splurging a little more up front will save you in the long run.
While more hotels are catering to families, certain necessities are still considered luxuries at some locations. For example, some hotels still charge for WiFi, by the day or even by the hour, and many either don't offer business services such as printing and faxing or charge for the privilege.

Know what you can afford Bad expenses happen to good people, but having a general idea of what you can afford for your overall trip will help keep those costs in line. Food and drink is all they have to obsess over: the nearest they have to indulgence, or simply to feel like human beings.
Whisky is the drug they all crave, and this luxury is the most fundamental necessity of all. Their horrible situation of boredom and nerve-shredding tension suddenly becomes even more unspeakable when the order comes through that Osborne and Raleigh are to lead a raiding party, in broad daylight, into enemy lines to capture a German soldier for intelligence purposes. What becomes queasily clear is that the raid has been planned for daytime for no good reason other than getting it completed for the report that will precede the formal dinner.
More incredibly, it is to go ahead without any dummy run, or dress rehearsal with some British squaddie acting the part of the German so that this manhandling can be practised.
They are just expected to do it. The aftermath of this grisly adventure brings all their despair into yet sharper focus. Dibb and his excellent cast put new passion into it. Facebook Twitter Pinterest. Topics War films.
