Europe is on sale summer 2009

Thanks to recession-induced price cutting, this is a GREAT time to travel to Europe. Right now airfare, hotel accommodation, etc are really cheap. Book as soon as you can. In the past you could wait for last minute deals. In today's economy airline and hotel "great deal" seats or rooms are booking up quickly. According to travel experts airfare to Europe is currently 50% lower than it was last year. Also the last summer the Dollar sank to a record low against the Euro and pound. I traveled myself during that time and it was really bad. This summer it has improved quite a bit. The dollars value is up 20% vs. the euro and 30% vs. the pound.

I usually buy the tours that the ship offers, but you can also have a great time by doing your research on each port ahead of time and doing a self guided tour. A great site for this is

Best way to get a deal on airline tickets

It can be difficult get a great deal on airline tickets. Prices change all the time, things go up and down. In order to get a great deal, you will need to spend time searching the internet.

If you don't have time for all that, let a professional do it for you. Travel professionals can help you get a good deal, so if you don't have time to do the research yourself call a pro.
