Summer travel deals

Going anywhere fun this summer?

Personally, I can’t wait until when I put my “out of office” message on at the beginning of next month when I head for the beach!

Don’t worry, I’m not counting down the days or anything.

I was shocked to learn how many of us actually forgo vacations. Some 40% of Americans will leave vacation time on the table, one study found, due to a “work martyr complex.”

Really? There’s some sort of valor in dying at our desks? I didn’t get the memo.

So, for my latest column in O, The O Magazine I share some money-saving tips and tools to help you make last-minute travel plans.


In the column, I share some specific advice from many travel pros, including So Money guest and travel expert Matt Kepnes who started the wildly popular blog Nomadic Matt.

We learn:

  • How to nab a free upgrade at a hotel upon arrival. What exactly should you say to the front desk?
  • One great app that can help you find the cheapest round-trip flight.
  • The most affordable cities to travel in Europe right now.

I hope you take some time off this summer, even if it’s just a staycation. We all need to hit the reset button sometimes.

“Abundance consciousness comes from the fact that you have access to your creativity. If you ask yourself, “What’s my passion? What’s my purpose? How can I serve? How can I improve the quality of life?” You pursue excellence, then success is a byproduct.”
