Submitted by: Becky B.
Destination: Maui, Hawaii
Best deal found: We went for our 25th wedding anniversary. The best deal we found was a day on the Road to Hana – no charge

Submitted by: Jonathan H.
Destination: Egypt
Best deal found: Used local cab drivers instead of tour group. Our driver knew the best places to eat, best times to visit sites, kept the panhandlers away and found us great discounted deals on balloon and boat rides.

Submitted by: Gary M.
Destination: Giverny, France
Best deal found: This is part of Monet’s Garden. Entrance fee is very nominal and the sites must not be missed. Only 1 1/2 hour north of Paris. Most beautiful in Spring (May).

Submitted by: Michelle B.
Destination: Corfu, Greece
Best deal found: The food was wonderfully fresh & reasonably priced for Europe.

Submitted by: Don B.
Destination: Rome
Best deal found: This picture was actual taken through a door keyhole. It is St. Peters in Rome. We found the sight by taking a personal guide because I had injured my ankle in a Scuba accident prior to our vacation. It was a great deal to use the guide for us since we didn’t have to stand in lines and he showed us great sites like this Keyhole that had a perfect view of the church. Picture taken with Nikon D200 with Telephoto 200 Nikon lens.

Submitted by: Kristen K.
Destination: Ecuador
Best deal found: Bottled water was only 30 cents! Everything in Ecuador seemed pretty reasonable.

Kimberly S.
Destination: Laos
Best deal found: Although this particular town is becoming increasingly familiar with foreign faces, Laos is still in the very early stages of development so all costs are very low. The best deal was probably all of the free meals that the extremely friendly locals offered to us!

Submitted by: Justin Z.
Destination: Hallo Bay, Alaska
Best deal found: Airfare was reasonable given the length of the flight. Alaska has many scenes that remain etched in your memory for a lifetime.

Destination: Puerto Rico
Best deal found: The airfare was certainly where we saw our savings. Airtran has just started flights to Puerto Rico and to entice flyers, the offered round-trip tickets at $99 each way (just a little over $200 with tax and fees). The picture is of some of the old castles in Old San Juan.

Submitted by: Dana F.
Destination: Mt. Katahdin, ME
Best deal found: Back in 1976, a friend and I celebrated the bicentennial by hiking the Appalachian Trail, 2100 miles. It took 123 days, I lost 28 lbs and it only cost $600.00 for a summer of memories (and blisters). In the background is Mt. Katahdin, the terminus of the AT.

Submitted by: Karen F.
Destination: West Point Lake, GA
Best deal found: RV CAMPING. We have camped at multiple Army Corp Parks. 18 bucks a night and a beautiful view made this one of the best vacations ever. West Point Lake is alot quieter than some other lakes in GA. I loved the camp hosts and the accessibility to Atlanta.
