Book Description


The economy took a dive and recovery has been slow and, at best, uneven. Does that mean we're not traveling? Hardly. It's not a matter of whether we'll travel, or when, or even where. It's simply a matter of how. Indeed, it's a brave new world for travel. Fewer airlines means less competition and steeper airfares. Hotels are adding fees left and right. And the cost of rental cars has begun to skyrocket. But all hope is not lost. In fact, in New Rules of the Road, CBS News Travel Editor Peter Greenberg shows you how to travel well in the current economic climate. You will learn:

-The best day, and the best of time of day, to purchase discount airline tickets.
-How to book, and when to book, car rentals with unadvertised deals
-How to score unprecedented hotel bargains during “dead weeks”
-Free activities you need to know about in 30 cities across the U.S.
-The best times of year to find unpublished cruise discounts
-“Secret flights” that are not marketed but offer a great deal on an -unusual route by a foreign airlines
-Places where kids can eat and stay for free
-And much, much more

Traveling after an economic downturn shouldn't result in a personal meltdown. With Greenberg's guidance, it's an open road.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Travelers must have in their library April 10, 2012
By C. Shaw
Verified Purchase
I have seen Pater Greenberg on TV on various morning shows and have his other books. He tells it like it is. He makes travel hassle free, many times I have used his advice on travel. I recently booked a cruise, and his tips and advice were most helpful. It is sectioned so its easy to read and understand on different aspects of travel. I have it on my kindle so when I travel I can reference it if I need to. A must have for those who think planning their own trip daunting or scary. It is also enhances knowledge to the road warrior who travels a lot. I normally don't give books 5 stars or write many reviews but this book I did

4.0 out of 5 stars Travel Ideas & Advice April 16, 2012
Verified Purchase
Very interesting book by an expert travel adviser. Many good ideas, however, a large part of the book is related to specific loocation and trips. Therefore, this becomes a document that you will reference over time as you have the opportunity to visit the speciifc area. The downside is that the information may be outdated by the time you can use it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Useful, but only marginally June 4, 2014
Verified Purchase
This book contains mostly information of marginal use to most travelers. In addition, the latter chapters of the book contain several inexcusable editorial errors and omissions. Surprising, given the reputation of the author, and the quality of his previous books. In retrospect,I would rather have waited for an update of his voluminous compendium, Travel Detective's Bible (I hope one is forthcoming).
