The weather is still decent, there are fewer crowds, and the tourist industry is still working hard.

You may be able to save a great deal on flights and hotels. Check the area you are traveling to find the best rates.

• Research the best hotel and airline rates on line.
See: Book Travel Online.

• Consider taking a tour. Tours can get group discounts and these can be passed on to you.

I took a European tour that visited several countries. It was a good sampling of the various European cultures.

• Consider taking a Europe cruise vacation. Cruises are a great way to keep your costs down on a Europe trip. For example, I have been on an Eastern Mediterranean Cruise and it was great fun.

• Purchase a good Guide Book to the areas of Europe you are traveling. Look for one with book with detailed maps, things to do, insider tips, great restaurants, hotels, shopping, nightlife and more.

The few dollars you spend will be returned many times over. Whenever I travel to a new place I make sure and get one or two. Consider Frommer’s guide. There are other good guides as well.
