Travel in (budget-friendly) Style
Booking flights and hotels can eat a chunk out of your getaway funds.
In order to get the most bang for your buck, US News suggests looking just off the beaten path when booking your travel arrangements.

For your airfare, check into repositioning flights. Repositioning flights occur when a plane needs to be moved from one airport to another, but airlines still offer virtually the same services.
