Choose your destination strategically
Few people know how to make international travel inexpensive better than Pauline Frommer, an award-winning travel writer and the editorial director of frommers.com. Her legendary father, Arthur Frommer, published the seminal guidebook “Europe on $5 a Day” in 1957, and their company publishes nearly 100 guidebooks as well as a newsy travel website. (Full disclosure: I’ve edited books for frommers.com in the past.)
Pauline Frommer’s advice is to “go where the dollar is strongest.” Use a currency converter, such as xe.com, to show the current and historical rates for different currencies in the countries you’re considering. Right now, she’s recommending Japan and Argentina, among other places.
