With the holidays just around the corner, your travel schedule is probably looking pretty packed with family events coming up. Or maybe you're staying home and other people are coming to you. Either way, knowing how to save on travel and accommodations is good for everyone in your life, so be sure to share this tip.
Of course, one of the biggest travel expenses is airline tickets. We've already told you three secrets to get the lowest airfare for your next trip. However, the next big expense is your accommodations. Even a moderately priced hotel or motel can cost hundreds of dollars. In a more exotic location, it can run into the thousands.
